The perfect human…Intelligent, wise, attractive, compassionate, humorous, caring, and all these other adjectives. This is the type of person we would love to be, if we had the chance. This is also the type of person that we would love to conceive, raise, and present to the world… Isn’t it? Well, I know I’d love to create and raise a child who was perfect… or as close to it as possible. One major problem exists though… We’ll get to it on a minute…
As some of you may know, I have my own creative writing program that I do with children. It’s called PENS OF POWER (<~ Click to Check out our new website). I was visiting one particular school on a regular basis and got rather familiar with the kids. With one child in particular, I told him to pull his pants up because I didn’t want to see his underwear. I said, “Joker, don’t nobody wanna see your drawz, pull your pants up. Do you do that at home?!?!” He laughed, pulled his pants up and replied, “Yeah we all do. I get it from my father. This is how he wears his pants.” 0_O (See Butts & Belts)
On another occasion, there was a student (10 years old) who was tapping her feet on the chair in front of her, annoying the fire out of the child who was sitting in that chair. Her teacher tried to give her the stare down aka evil eye in hopes that the young lady would get the point and stop the tapping. Instead, she looks at her teacher and says, “Mr. Such and Such… Why are you looking at me sexually like that. You better stop” …WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?! What is this chick being exposed to?!?!
I spoke to a friend on the phone last night whose son had a math assignment. It required that the students bring in cheerios to class to use as money. The teacher would use the cheerios as an aid to help the kids count, and then at the end of the exercise, they’d get to eat the cheerios. Her son ended up getting into an argument with one of the children he was partnered with and then had to sit in the corner. I’m not sure of the details of the argument but the fact that they had to pair up was because the OTHER child’s parents/guardian didn’t send them with cheerios. And because of the type of school this is, it wasn’t an issue of being underprivileged. What’s up with that?!?!
I talked earlier about raising the perfect child and then I mentioned there being one major problem… That problem is the fact that my kid is going to have to be around other kids whose parents are jerks! And when you come from a household lead by a jerk or 2 jerks, and then mingle with my kid, that may or may not affect what my Super Sperm and my wife’sExquisite Egg has produced lol! Don’t get me wrong, we all have jerkish tendencies and by no means do I really intend on raising the perfect child but I see a whole lot of stuff going on in these streets with these kids, man! A lot of stuff that I’m sure is a direct reflection of what goes on in their homes. I have friends who are in education and they look stressed from their jobs! Not just because of the regular stuff that kids put you through but because of the lack of quality parenting. It’s bad out here, man!
I used to want to have 5 children. But now that I look at all of the circumstances in society, that number has dropped to “2 AT MOST” and I’m dead serious! Some of you have children, And I’m sure none of my viewers and supporters are the JERKS at home raising these children… Right? Of course not… Some of you are raising other people’s children and if you’re like me you’re either on your way to being a parent or it’s in the not so distant future. I think this is and should be a major concern for us all and to be honest, I don’t really know what to do about it. You can’t really tell people how to raise their children, and I think that most of the people who are wise and mature enough to listen to parental advice are the people who don’t really need it. I look at these little jokers as our future doctors, and lawyers, and politicians and I’m nervous. I’ll be honest… I’m very nervous. I think we should start with the jerks that we know personally and maybe start sitting them down from time to time. Maybe this trend will catch on and make a difference. Otherwise, I might just keep my little super swimmers to my self… WORD!
Any jerks you want to comment on? lol
