I may be politically incorrect but I’m free to be


Is it just me or does anyone else miss the good old days? Being able to have family dinners without texting. Children playing outside, using tin cans as phones, not the latest smartphone.  We are so caught up with technology that we have forgotten what’s really important. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the newest gadgets. I wish though that there was more focus on family.  We are bombarded with advertisements from the moment we wake up. You can’t even pump gas or stand in a checkout line in peace. All the push for the next best thing has led us to hasty production. Nothing is made to last. Everything is disposable. How can that be “green”? Integrity is just  something that seems to have gone along the wayside. Where has our pride gone? What are we if we don’t have pride in our work? We need to make  a change. We must show our children what is important and lead by example. Our  everyday lives need to show that our interactions with our children, spouses, family are what life is really about. Respect needs to be instilled in our homes. All too often I hear children talking back to their parents and their parents dismissing it. Parents in general have become lazy. It takes a lot of work to raise a child properly. Anyone can have a kid and just watch him or her grow. If you don’t have the energy or time to invest into your offspring, don’t have them. My words sound harsh I know. Everything nowadays is politically correct – a joke in itself. Politicians are among the most corrupt but yet we call ourselves politically correct, it’s ironic. We are free to make our own choices. We imprison ourselves into conforming with everyone else. Please do what YOU feel is right, not what is “perceived” as correct. Enough of my ranting. Spend time with your family today, away from the cellphones and netbooks. Try for a moment to go back to the basics. You will find that peace within.

  1. Amen this is something I am trying to improve on my life right now. We only allow the kids to use computer, TV etc from 7-8 Now its hard especially when you come home tired but I know the importance of family time. Eating Dinner as a family, Helping the Kids with Homework. Great Post

  2. We have taken political correctness to the point of stupidity. We try and make everyone “the same”, confusing sameness with equality. I do not have to the the same as someone else in order to be entitled to equal rights.

    As for back to basics, I do not believe in TVs in bedrooms. Computers, unfortunately, seem to be required for homework these days, so I’m still stuck with that battle – hard to roster four children to one ‘general use” household computer.

  3. You are so right! The whole kids getting away with talking back thing has always gotten on my nerves because to this very day if I talked back to my mom she would kill me. There is no respect anymore, it’s sad.
