    Kids Acting Badly

    Kids, now what comes to mind when you think of kids, not goats. Children running around the supermarket unattended . Their parents find it's easier to ignore them, instead of controlling them. We can't blame the children, because we all Need boundaries . Blame the parents...

    Many People Simply Do Not Care Anymore How They Act.

    People don't care what language they use or the tone it is said in. It seems that we (many of us) have become a society of self-obsessed, arrogant, obnoxious individuals. Rudeness is never justified whether in any area of our lives. I know that thoughts are not easily...
