Why do kids cry when leaving their moms and dads at their school? Instead of being excited to go somewhere outside of the family unit, go somewhere where you’ll learn things you can’t at home, go to a place of discovery and excitement, stimulation and experience- parents have instilled in their children that THEY are the most important thing in their world, that they can not survive or do anything without them standing right there.
American parents instill guilt in their children for wanting to be themselves, for wanting-needing to be different in thought, feeling and beliefs apart from the momy and dady. Parents punish their kids in tremendously harmful ways emotional scarring the kid for being what he/she was born to be..themselves.
Society tells us ;be all that you can be,democracy is the foundation of our country, that we are “special” because anyone can go to school to learn and cultivate their skills for life that will support them and bring happiness and prosperity into their lives.
American families teach dependency not individuality, responsibility, Spirituality, and reason, nor how to tap into strength from within and how to develop our own identity. American families are the farthest thing from a practicing democratic unit, they are the most confining, debilitating and suppressing example of what “family” means.
There are millions in this world who would give their right arm Literally to be able to have an education. Millions do die, will die and are prepared to die so that their kids can go to school and learn. How many people have been blown up from stepping on land mines on their way to school? How many have been shot point blank for crossing over an invisible line to get to school? how many families have been round up and burned to death or shot or macheted to death for having learning material hided within their homes? How many millions of people are out here with mutilated limbs , scars visible and scars so deeply in-bedded within their mind who will again go out of their houses and walk the same route with the same possibilities encountering the horrors that blew their family apart because a book of knowledge is more valuable than fear?
The parents who instill fears of abandonment into their children because they dare to be what they were born to be, because they yearn to know knowledge outside of their restrictive family unit I say shame on you you selfish ….For those kids who were abused, let down, shamed or emotionally baby-fied are the ones who grow up to be crappy teachers, coaches and dr.s. Our schools are filled with let downs, teachers who have no soul and no passion and certainly no patience, they are overwhelmed over worked and under appreciated just as they were as children Learning and teaching is a cycle you can’t blame one for incompetence without looking at how that came to be, and it all starts with the Parents.
To us all, we are all responsible for the life of a child. Responsible for nurturing and providing everything positive. They are not property . We can’t tie them up to sit in our life and threaten them when they show signs of thinking for themselves. This is america, we have been given a chance of freedom to learn without an army,guns,bombs and land mines on our path to school, and soo many parents are f-ing up what a very awesome chance kids have at being the next leaders who WILL bring peace and solve a lot of problems and miseries americans deal with. But If we can’t even appreciate this reality which millions of others have to die for than we are no better, no smarter and certainly not more consciously aware than any one else and we certainly are not worthy the name “super power” because factually the majority of people in this country are functioning at the level of 8th graders. SO parents take the dam diapers off of your kid and send them out into the world-because it is the world THEY will be running before you know it.
