As I walked the Boog this morning I came across an interesting situation. There was a Jeep Cherokee parked near the intersection in front of my house. It was a mom waiting for the school bus with her young daughter and son. 1st observation, it's 49 degrees and you live 2 blocks from this intersection. Put on a coat and walk to the bus stop! There is no reason to sit in your running car, coddling your kids. If they don't learn to deal with inclement weather, how will they handle true hardships? 2nd, the radio in the car was playing Gangsta Rap. I distinctly heard the catchy chorus of "Kablow! Run M**tha F**ka run!" This is what you play in front of your young children, lady?? Now people, I have a CD rack chock full of Parental Advisories. It is my responsibility as a parent to control the profanity content of the music my kids hear when I am with them. So now I know that someone in my neighborhood is raising overprotected, overexposed children. She's far from the only one who drives their kid to the bus stop. There's one lady who drives her child from the driveway to 60 feet from the end of the driveway. I wonder why our kids are becoming obese?
