Exaggerations of Life

I think that empowering younger children is our response to all the limitations we put on young adults who SHOULD be making their own decisions.

limitation is good

Limitation is a good thing. An engine limits the free-flowing gasoline in it and look what the engine does. Remove the container and it wastes itself. Boundaries = good. look what happens when you prune a garden. it becomes beautiful. Leave it alone and the weeds destroy it.

Irresponsible!

Is it immaturity on these parents' parts or irresponsibility?

So true that "parents need to grow up"

So true that these "parents need to grow up" but is it immaturity on the parents' part, or irresponsibility? Letting their children shop where they want and make decisions for themselves, without any guidance, is not parenthood in my opinion.

Stupid Idots !

Accidents do happen, but lets not cause them. Show a child the way to go ! My youngest sister is warped by by parents divorce. She is now acting the man in relationship with a divorced woman. I am desperately unhappy about the situation, but she is now about 50 and is set in her ways. All I can do is pray for her.
