    DRUG PROBLEM

    Thought this is very appropriate with today's society!
    The other day, someone at a store in a small town
    read that a methamphetamine lab had been found in
    an old farm house in the adjoining county and he
    asked me a rhetorical question, "Why didn't we
    have a drug problem when you and I were growing up?"
    "I did have a drug problem when I was a kid growing
    up on the farm."
    I had a drug problem when I was young:
    I was drug to church on Sunday morning.
    I was drug to church for weddings and funerals.
    I was drug to family reunions and community socials no
    matter the weather.
    I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults.
    I was also drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents,
    told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not speak with respect,
    spoke ill of the teacher or the preacher. Or if I didn't put forth my
    best effort in everything that was asked of me.
    I was drug to the kitchen sink if I uttered a profane
    four letter word (I do know what Lye soap tastes like).
    I was drug out to pull weeds in mom's garden and
    flower beds and cockleburs out of dad's fields.
    I was drug to the homes of Family, Friends, and
    neighbors to help out some poor soul who had
    no one, to mow the yard, repair the clothesline
    or chop some fire wood, and if my mother had
    ever known that I took a single dime as a tip for
    this kindness, she would have drug me back to
    the wood shed.
    Those drugs are still in my veins; and they
    affect my behavior in everything I do, say,
    and think. They are stronger than cocaine,
    crack or heroin, and if today's children had
    this kind of drug problem, America might be
    a better place today.

    I guess I'd appreciate it more if not for the fact I've known people who dove headfirst into drugs and worse after such an upbringing. A friend of my brother-in-law had a family like that and, after he got into trouble and was later diagnosed with schizophrenia, they cast him aside like garbage. I didn't have that upbringing, thank God, and I'm the one who shovels neighbors' sidewalks.

    all my friends were brought up like that, and myself.. and we are better people for it.

    i was shocked when i heard that people at my school didnt have dinner (supper) together as a family. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    its amazing what this world comes to.
    and now if you try to do a little dicapline (sp?) on your kids, someone is gonna call CPS. that a bar of soap in the mouth is detrimental [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    man i learned alot about life, that wooden spoons are harder then your butt, and a little switch does NOT hurt less than a big switch, that there are consequences to my actions, and do unto others as you would have others do unto you is true.

    I don't necessarily agree with the last part either.... :P
    depends on the kid.
    personally I think if I had been brought up that way I wouldn't be so good O

    It makes some of them want to rebel, and then when they get into trouble, they blame it on their parents. It's sad.

    Parnets can go overboard in both ways: by neglecting, or by rigindly controlling kids. But there's no denying that parents who are involved and concerned are better than ones who are detached and apathetic.

    On the other hand, one should teach a kid to WANT to do those things instead of scaring them into it. JMO
