Village Children As Responsible Adults?
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
I submit to you that that is the
causation of most of the crime and vandalism done to our towns and
cities today. It is also the root cause of street gangs rivaling the
murderous gangs of the old west. All because a village raised those
In actuality, it takes a mom and a dad to take
responsibility for their offspring and raise those children in the way
they should go. It is the most important duty of every parent. As
Solomon said: “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is
grown he will not depart from it”. The scriptures also teach us that:
“as the twig is bent, so growth the tree”! There it is, folks.
Did you see anything about a village raising
your child? I didn’t either. A village raising a child is strictly a
socialist idea. They know that if they can get hold to that young mind
they can indoctrinate that child and create another leftist clone. And
they are correct. They can. It has happened, already. We have at
least two generations of those people let loose on American society ...
nay, the world!
If you are going to bring a child into this
world… be prepared to raise that child and teach that child what it
means to be a responsible adult American. Teach him, or her, the
freedoms, the privileges, and most importantly the responsibility one
has as an American toward his fellowman.
In my opinion, daycare has caused more damage to the American family and the
American society than an nuclear explosion would have wrought!
Mothers, going off to work and dropping their children off to be raised
by a stranger. That stranger spends more time a week with their
children than the parents do. And parents wonder why they have
discipline problems when they have their child at home?
Think about it, dear reader. The child is just a visitor in his own home. His real home is at the daycare center!
remember that my mother decided she would go to work, soon after my
younger brother was born. He was a toddler and I was no more than five
years of age. My father's employer provided a nursery school for
children of their employees, So, my mother and father dropped us off
there on mother’s first day at work.
My adventure with daycare lasted an entire day.
the end of that day, I had managed to cuss out the lady in charge of
the place, got slapped across the face so hard that the full imprint of
the lady’s hand was plastered all over the left side of my face -- and
-- had a ruptured eardrum to boot… all because I did not like the way
she was treating my brother.
Like any older brother worth his
salt, I went to his defense. The daycare lady decided she would treat
me the same way she was treating my brother. I rebelled and told her to
take her hands off me and called her a "white-headed old Bi-ch”!
That’s when I got smacked.
The lady was fired and my parents nearly sued the company… but for fear of losing my father’s job, they did not.
ended my one, and only, personal experience with daycare! I remain
proud of it to this day! And… I detest over zealous authority figures
to this day and will to the end of my natural days.
the end of daycare for my brother and me. Besides, with the reputation I
earned for myself in that single confrontation, I suspect there was not
a single daycare in town that would have allowed me near the place!
I was punished for my behavior, but not by my parents. After all, I
was doing what was required of me as an older brother.
punishment? I have gone through my life with partial hearing in my left
ear that is a constant reminder of my youthful infraction of societal
The lesson I learned? When confronting someone larger than you -- be prepared to duck!
Honestly, I was a little slow in learning that lesson and earned myself
a broken nose, numerous split lips, and broken front teeth on more than
one occasion since. What can say? I'm hard-headed!
a village cannot raise a child properly. Oh, sure, they can raise a
child, but you get … well, what we have today, young barbarians!
parents, if you want your child raised properly, with the values you
believe in, and with the core beliefs of your family, then YOU raise
your child yourself! If, on the other hand, you trust someone else’s
values above your own, then you allow someone else to raise your kids.
It’s as simply as that.
