Some photos from our favorite Breakfast place in Massachusetts this past weekend:
For awhile now, something that has been bothering me. Since becoming a mother, my outlook on many things have changed. I read stories in the news or see things that make me want to shut off the tv or close my laptop. I've never been one ever watch the news anyhow. But it seems that things today are not the same as they were 10 years ago, or 20 years ago. I'm talking about our children. It bothers me to see stories of children bringing guns to school, or doing unthinkable things. How did our children become so angry and destructive? How did they get so out of control and unmanageable? What is happening in the world now, that is causing so much disfunction in these children's lives? This has been a silent, ongoing question in my head since Scarlett was born.
How can I raise my child so that she is kind, respectful, loving and disciplined? How can I raise a good person? How can I make the next generation better? Twenty years ago, when I was young, there wasn't as much anger in children, not as much hatred or behavioral issues. I'm not saying that there wasn't any, but there was significantly less. I'm sure there was even less 20 years before that. So what has changed in such little amount of time? Last week, I fell upon this blog post from a blogger I had never heard of before. As I was reading her post, chills came over me. She answered the very question that I had been pondering…..
If you have a moment, I want to share with you this amazing short interview with a Dr who has some wonderful insight. After reading this, I am certain that she is on the right track when it comes to raising our children. This is an amazing read especially for parents!
