Last week traveling on the fast ferry got me thinking about children.
Many all over the ferry.
I was a 50's child and my son a 70's child (both of us above, he 3 yr old- me 5 yr old)
and compared to today such a contrast.
Usually I bring a book/magazine to read, sometimes I doze off.
Well, of late parents mostly Mothers are reading aloud, yup loud
to their child, children.
I love books and children BUT why are we subjected to listen to your story telling?
We were raised to speak softly in public, what happened to that?
Everyone seems to be getting louder.
In restaurants, on cell phones walking down a street, why?
Your infringing on our space!
Lack of manners, classless?
Your children mock their parents behavior-think it's time parents you change.
Most are darlin and well dressed, BUT I don't see, hear manners, wonder why?
May I ask those traveling with your darlin children to make them aware
of space, noise, speaking low, while teaching yourself the same. PLEASE
as our society is already a mess, and it starts with the child.
Remember that song "Teach Your Children Well"? by
Crosby,Stills & Nash...
I call it the entitlement crowd, work on it parents!
