I'm Not Their Judge, But...

I do think that some people were never meant to be mothers and fathers. I am appalled at so many of the parents I see berating and abusing their kids in public. Whenever anyone talks to them, the first thing they say is "Don't you dare tell me how to raise my child!" Some people need to be told, just like some people need to be told that they can't beat their wives, or can't starve their dog. I think that even though it's hard to discern bad parenting from a bad mood, family violence isn't something that should be ignored... it's good people's prerogative to try and make life better for kids who never did anything to deserve their horrible parents.

I believe people ca change but thay have to want to change u cant take the house to the watter if the house douse not want the watter .

I believe people can change too, but only if they want to. In this case, there are some people who no matter what you teach them will not care about children's rights and will raise their kids however they d-mn feel like it, because "they're just kids". Some people consider kids like pets or livestock- animals that need to be tamed. People who can't think of children- especially their own- as human beings with rights and feelings shouldn't be having kids in the first place.

[group title] thats a pretty strong statement to make...i think that ppl who aren't really..."suitable" should be educated about children's rights and domestic violence/abuse...i believe ppl can change. =>
