So many lousy parents out there.
There are parents who want so badly to have their kids to be thought of as "cool" by giving them the latest smart phone when they are in 3rd grade or younger, who only buy the most expensive brand name clothes, who encourage their kids to develop cliques with only certain types of kids, who don't care if their kids are the ones who whisper about other kids behind their backs, who have kids who are just plain mean.......you know who you are. Why do you do it? Shame on you. I see so many kids who are complete jerks to others and you just know their parents are aware of what is going on but they don't do anything to stop it. I feel bad for those people.
Kudos to the parents out there who are doing a great job and have kids that just go with the flow and that don't have to fall into the lifestyle of trying to be the "popular" all the time. I see most of this happening with girls and mothers (can anyone argue that they see plenty of crazy moms at their kids school every day?) but that does not mean that dads don't know what is going on and are just plain pansies for doing anything to stop it.
