Tax Money Shouldn’t Be Spent to Baby-Sit Your Kid

Lawmakers to librarians — basically, anyone with a say — are clamping down on teens and pre-teens. Just five years ago, young Ohioans had more control over their time, what they wore and even what they could shoot.

Whether these teen laws are good or bad, to me is irrelevant. No one wants to address the root problem, the absentee parents.

When we were young, we all new kids whose parents let them do whatever they wanted. We were always jealous of those kids, because our parents were “so strict.” Looking back, we now understand why our parents did what they did, because (generally speaking) we are successful and that kid who could get away with anything (again generally speaking) is a looser.

It’s time America’s parents wake-up and remember, your child is your #1 priority. Too many people are more concerned with personal success, rather than the success of their kids.

Sure, if you spent more time with your kid you might only be able to afford a Toyoda instead of the Lexis. Maybe you’d only be able to live in a $200 house rather than a $300 house. But kids don’t need luxury cars and palatial houses; they need parents that take an interest in them.

And yes, before you ask, I am a parent.
