If you allow society and government to raise your children, they will and they will create the exact fear based adults that consume their media and products without question. The mistake is thinking that society is responsible and you cannot do anything. Your kids do not do what you say they do what you do... It all starts with parenting and the morals and behaviors of the parents.

put them in a Christian school in RURAL America.

Don't let them watch trash on tv, and by the time they do, morals will be their foundation; they will grow up to be great people.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23818020


Here you go... except take it one step further -- HOME SCHOOL them in rural America.


That GREATLY increases your odds of having a mature, quality child that grows into a mature quality man or woman.

The kids are growing up too fast and are not being allowed to act as kids. With the internet and every human on Earth needing a phone to tell them when to eat and shit,and they wonder why kids are unsocial.Were there mass school murders before the internet?..i dont remember any.

Seriously? We are handing them a bankrupt system -- financially and morally. That is our legacy and they know it -- they know we've passed our sins onto them.

Their security will not come from eliminating dangers, but by providing a future that they can count on. And my best guess is that it aint going to happen anytime soon.

First things first. Before we can give children a stable healthy communit/city/country to grow up in, we first must be able to provide them with stable healthy HOMES to live in. It all starts at home.

People need to only have children if they are truly in love. Children need to grow up in a two parent home. Be tought morals. Fathers need to stay around, and raise the kids they have. Momma needs to realize she is going to have an effed up child if she is out till 3am partying still.

That's step 1

“The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the World”, however, if sheisnot at home to do that little chore, no one is in charge. The lights are on, but noone is home.

Weneed to reposition family life to its original status (throw away the door key and arm everyone old enough to hold a gun, until we all, once again, learn to act civilized),

Isaiah 51:7 "Hear me, you who know what is right, you people who have my law in your hearts: Do not fear the reproach of men or be terrified by their insults.”

". . . and he who has no sword, let him sell
his garment and buy one." according to
Jesus in Luke 22:36
Yesteryear the “sword” was the equivalent to today’s ak47; the slingshot, the handgun.

"Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for
war, my fingers for battle" Psalm 144:1

Psalm 149:6
Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand

Hosea 4:6:
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:

OH YEAH! The United States Of America is in fact a Christian Nation
or Israel cannot be a Jew Nation:
[link to paminifarm.jeeran.com]

Once the woman has children, she stays home to nurture them and their daddy.

The mother/wife plants a garden, cans food, gathers eggs, shovels the snow and coal for the furnace, until the children are strong enough to do that; sews; takes in laundry and/or mending; bakes; sells baked goods, and develops any other skills she may have to bring in a little pocket change.

Mother gets the children to school, but at home teaches them long-lost home skills, and how to work with and use their hands for God’s work, not to be confused with the Devil’s tools. (“Idle hands are the Devil’s tools”, and iam sure everyone has seen enough of that already).

i think every generation says the same thing of the upcoming generation. like when rock 'n roll came about, then punk music, then rap....etc.

it's the challenge that makes life beautiful; to be the light in the void and darkness.

when the condition is right, all it takes is one spark to light up to keep millions warms and illuminated. all we can do is be ready when the time comes.

Not sure why people are have kids these days.

Events like this latest shooting, and the general decay of civilization, are not new news. Neither is the news, that worse, far worse days, are coming for the children and us all. Despite these facts, people have brought kids into a no-win nightmarish hell of collapse and slavery, to be debt and wage slaves, cannon fodder for bankers wars, and poverty.

I would love to have kids, on a planet which is not plummeting into an age of darkness. But its a conscious decision, and everyone has free will to reproduce or not, and we each live with the decisions we make.

Society for your children is what you as the parents create, to clarify the the parents control the child's society. If you feel you have no control and you let your kids experience the overall society before their are able to understand what they are experiencing it will shape their views. You can choose whether or not guns, violence sex etc... Are part of your child's society before they are ready...

You have to love them.
You have to respect them.
You have to help them to become a self-confident and a strong personality.
You have to leading by example.
You have to cultivate good manners .
You have to show them the beauties of nature.
You have to listen their words and wishes.
You have to read the bedtime story .
You have to play with them together.
You have to build them daily little islands of tranquility .
You have to be be patient.

You dont have to park them in front of your TV, PC, or other games consoles.
Do not take bad mood out on your child.
And don't forget: As you sow, so you shall reap!

we can't change the world.
but we can change our perspective and survival within in.

there has been a rapid decline in our civilization.
we need to meet and match it with survival and coping skills for our children.

sad but true.
maybe we need to all become mother's like sarah connor?

seriously.
 Quoting: Salt


We can't change the world, only ourselves.

I just came from my daughter preschool, Christmas/Holiday program. It was held in a church for the sake of space and there were a lot of parents and grandparents there even though it was late morning on a weekday. The church was jammed full, with standing room only. I felt very uncomfortable and couldn't help think that the setting was a perfect target for a crazy person to start shooting it up.

I'm sure many other parents felt the same way. However, the children were oblivious to this and they carried on perfectly...at least for now - today. I realized that as adults our fear for our children is so heightened it has to affect them.

What do we do about this. I am sure our collective fears, as parents, is out of control. This doesn't serve to make it better. How do we move on without fear, when we don't even know how to protect our children without keeping them in a box.

Seriously...

emotionally, physically, mentally...

a world that offers stability, sanity, love, warmth, promising futures?

we continue to point fingers and blame, but nobody is willing to stand up and make a difference.

this world has gone completely insane.
and our kids are left alone to cope with it.
we, as adults, are doing nothing to offer compassion or understanding.

this is the core issue.
