I hope this Wednesday evening finds you well! Today was a MUCH better day, even though I dropped a full fountain Dr. Pepper on the ground as soon as I got out of my truck at work this morning! That was the universe’s way of saying no to me. 😉
Tonight I wanted to talk a little bit about something I have been noticing a lot, especially with the younger generations on social media. And it’s something I feel really needs to be nipped in the butt pretty quick and in a hurry.
I have begun to notice a lot of the youth finding, somehow and some way, a sense of entitlement. And I am rather discouraged.
For example, I have seen examples of youth being given something amazing, like a cell phone, but it isn’t the model they wanted. Instead of being thankful they even got a cell phone, they become belligerent and hurtful and the person giving them the gift because “it is not good enough”.
I fear that my children will grow up in a society, regardless of what I teach them, that will influence them more than I can. Maybe that isn’t a logical fear if my parenting is as good as it should be.
My point is, this generation and the ones after it need to be taught that when you’re given a mile, take an inch. Let’s teach them to take what they need, and give what they want. That’s the only way this world has any chance of survival.
This is kind of a random post tonight, but I feel like it’s necessary.
Have a wonderful evening!
