wake up people


I have heard the way your children speak to you lately. What the heck? Why do you not require they speak to you respectfully?

Do you think somehow that you are doing them a favor letting them "express themselves"?

Do you think you are freakin' martyr because you are able to hide your frustration when they talk to you like you were dog poop on the bottom of their shoe?

Fathers, do you see how your daughters are dressing?!?!?!

And you let them walk out of the house looking like that?

Do you want them to get a reputation..... or worse?

You are raising the next generation for God's sake. Please!

Do the job that He gave to you.

Come on.

Man up.

Do the right thing.

Ooops, just saw this was at 3:00, well before the youth Mass.

And while you are on this...
Could mother's please teach their sons some respect for the female population that translates into a more healthy attitude to dating like gentlemen? Could fathers teach their daughters not to be calling every boy in town and chasing them, especially before they are out of middle school. Pretty sure that phone you gave them was not to call and chase boys. Could parents please get off the phone and talk to their children? Could parents please turn off the video games and interact with their children? Kids playing in the basement for hours on in is not good for them or their development. And for Pete's sake parents, use this handy little word and mean it the first time you say it...NO!
Whew, I feel better.
