KIDS HAVE BECOME EXTINCT

WHERE DID ALL THE KIDS GO?

What happened to all these kids. You used to see kids out playing on the street riding their bicycles, causing mischief lol. Not anymore! These over structured kids are no longer outside, they are too busy on mommies schedule. They have also convinced that it is no longer safe to wander the streets in daylight. That old rule- be home when the streetlights come on, no longer applies. These kids can’t do anything unless it is prescheduled, preprogrammed, pre approved, structured, and monitored for safety. lol

I’m not really laughing.

In the past when you told your friend you’re calling him later that meant going over to his house to see if he wanted to hang out. Now, It means “I’ll text you”

I wonder what social skills these kids are going to have after a childhood of social deprivation and social interaction.

WHAT WITH ALL THE IMMUNIZATIONS ?

What is the deal with all of the immunizations and inoculations they are injecting these kids with? Aside from my concerns to the “possible” link to autism! (I’ll leave that topic alone for now)

But, seriously! Whats with all these shots that are being given to kids these days? Kids do not even get to experience the chicken pox anymore!

We have a very efficient and evolved immune system that is being cheated out of valuable practice! How is it going to be prepared to fight of infections if it hasn’t been training and building up immunities naturally?

THAN THERE IS ALSO MY CONCERN OR DISCOMFORT IN ANYTHING THEY WANT TO INJECT INTO YOU WITHOUT US “KNOWING” ALL OF THE CONTENTS IN THESE SHOTS…..

PARENTS- QUESTION FOR YOU

Im just wondering if there is a “tech time” allowance being applied like the previous generation (Probably the one you were a kid) had a certain allowable TV time. The usual punishment might have included the “NO TV”

What is it now? — You’re grounded, and no TV, VIDEO GAMES,ONLINE GAMES, PHONE, CELL PHONE, TEXT, EMAIL, COMPUTER, ELECTRONIC DEVICES )?  

GO TO YOUR ROOM IS NO LONGER A PUNISHMENT SINCE THATS WHERE MOST KIDS PREFER TO BE ALREADY!

I’M ALSO CURIOUS IF PARENTS ARE ABLE TO APPLY SOME FORM OF “PARENTAL APPLIED RECOGNITION AND CORRECTIVE ACTION TO BENEFIT AND RESULT IN A SUCCESSFUL MODIFICATION TO AN UNDESIRABLE  BEHAVIOR, IN A POSITIVE WAY AND AVOID EXPOSURE TO EMOTIONALLY CONFRONTATION AND ACCUSATIONS OF WRONG DOING RESULTING IN ANY DEPRIVATION THROUGH PUNISHMENT.”

Wow! I would like to think I was way beyond exaggerating, I’m afraid that its possibly accurate. A SIMPLE TIME OUT CAN NOW BE CONSIDER A FORM OF EXCLUSIONARY EMOTIONAL DAMAGE… LOL SOUNDS RIDICULOUS AND EXAGGERATED, BUT IS IT? 

HOW ABOUT THIS AS A NEW PUNISHMENT-(BENEFIT)

FOR THE NEXT WEEK YOU HAVE TO MEET UP WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND DO WHATEVER AS LONG AS NO ELECTRONIC DEVICES ARE AROUND AND PREFERABLY YOUR ACTIVITIES REMAIN OUTDOORS. INDOOR ACTIVITY DURING THIS PUNISHMENT MUST BE APPROVED FIRST. LOL 

POSSIBLY INCLUDE SOME PHYSICAL ACTIVITY, LIKE ROLLERBLADE, BIKE RIDING, OR HOW ABOUT EVEN HIDE A SEEK?  TAG? KNOCK AND RUN? 

IT JUST HAS BEEN SOMETHING THAT I’VE OBSERVED OR ACTUALLY NO LONGER IS SEEN- KIDS ACTUALLY OUT SIDE, SOCIALLY ENGAGED, AND NOT ELECTRONICALLY DEPENDENT. 

Try and remember what you experienced as a child what the world was like and than do a comparison to what the children today are “not living” in. It’s fine that they are tech savvy and doing well in school……… HOW ARE THEY DOING IN THE OUTSIDE WORLD? THE UNSTRUCTURED, UNFORGIVING, UNSYMPATHETIC, REAL LIFE WORLD THAT REQUIRES SOCIAL SKILLS, HONEST AND REALISTIC AWARENESS OF ACHIEVEMENT NOT ACCEPTANCE. (THIS IS REALITY… IT’S HARD FOR ME TO TYPE IT AND I’M SURE IT IS HARD TO ACCEPT READING IT) BUT, IT IS UNFAIR TO LET THESE CHILDREN BE DISILLUSIONED AND DEPRIVED OF ESSENTIAL LIFE SKILLS THAT CERTAIN EXPERIENCES (GOOD AND BAD) ARE REQUIRED DURING THAT PORTION OF BRAIN DEVELOPMENT WHICH PERMANENTLY BE APPLIED THROUGHOUT THIER LIFE.

“Elf on the Shelf” (Rant)

You might be thinking- what could he possibly attack about the “Elf on the shelf”

IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT ARE DENIAL- No need to worry because I’m going to present my interpretation of the unmentioned and potential negative application of this concept. After all I’m concerned with the children’s well being and feel obligated to talk about this. lol

First off— When did this whole — Elf on the self idea start? He wasn’t around when I was a kid… No one notified me of the addition and new amendment that applies to Christmas Procedure. If corporate America wants to make changes to the business model that uses Christmas as a boost in sales, they need to keep us consumers informed. I must mention that they did the same by gradually extending the promotion of Christmas now that Halloween is the start of the marketing campaign.

Thanksgiving is not a spending holiday so they don’t waste time on that

Back to the “Elf on the  Shelf”… Let me go through this concept and try to make you see what concerns me….

From what I have been told.. The elf on the shelf shows up as a informant and observer of children that is responsible for reporting any naughty children that are not obedient to be placed on the Santa naughty list. The elf changes his location everyday and the children go look to find him. At night he goes off to Santa to report and returns the next day to repeat.

Now,  I didn’t really exaggerate the description besides the informant title. Since I brought that up, I might as well start there . We always had the naughty or nice list for Christmas… but we did not have a assigned elf to hide and spy on us. These poor children!!! You wonder why they are screwed up…. I’m sorry… “developmentally challenged”….. these structure overloaded, over scheduled, over/under/improper medicated, over analyzed, over-weight, oversensitive, overwhelming, and over parented children are becoming emotionally disturbed, or suffer from limited mental capacity that requires them to be in special education…. (I have a separate rant for for this topic on children corruption)

With that being said, picture this child 6-7 yrs old after a full day of school (whatever they do in there now) comes home and first thought is “I have to find the elf on the self”>>>>>> And everyone finds its cute….. Well SORRY its not cute!!!!! Its stupid, another form of enforcing control and obedience and it is corrosive on innocent children’s minds. You are promoting OCD, anxiety, depression, and paranoia.

I like to view all possible ways of assessing something and the only one thing I could apply to “Elf on the Shelf” from ANY other negative was that it CONDITIONS THEM TO ACCEPT being always watched and listened to with no expectation of privacy. Even my spin on trying to find the positive or constructive aspect I look at as a negative.. Stop damaging these children with all this!!!!!             Its bad enough Corporate America turned Christmas into a marketing concept that we all pay for now every year making sure we get a gift of equal cost for people that are giving us one. (Another dedicated post for that)

Let these kids enjoy christmas while they can…. Before they reach the age that obligates them by expectation to purchase gifts…. by now they realize they did not get a gift…. they get to trade their purchase in exchange for the other persons purchased gift.

LET’S MAKE CHRISTMAS FUN AND MEANINGFUL AGAIN, NOT STRESSFUL…

LOL

Parents take note

“As kids we are told two common statements being that we can be anything and have anything we set our minds to, as well as be happy with what you got. No wonder kids are so confused! If you want them to be happy with what they got (settle) than there is no motivation to try for more. At what point should they be happy with what they have?”****
****Have to clarify that quote so it’s not misunderstood
A simple change in wording can fix this. “You can be and achieve anything you set your mind to as long as you learn from failures, keep trying no matter what hurdles are in your way, no matter how much time it takes just as long as you don’t neglect to appreciate what and who you have in your life than there is no reason or excuse to not want more”
