Ok, so there’s this video of a dad shooting his daughter’s laptop that has gone viral.
And I LOVE it.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it.
Now, mind you, I’m not so much in love with the fact that he shot her laptop,
although, to be honest, there have been many a moment where I have been very tempted to shoot, smash, destroy, or throw my kids’ cell phones.
No, what I am in love with is that this dad took back his rightful position in his home.
His daughter was being deeply disrespectful and he stopped her.
And, I LOVE that.
It needs to be done.
Kids are out of control and it’s our fault.
Parents, I mean.
We’ve become so politically correct,
so afraid we’ll scar our kids,
so terrified our neighbors will judge us, or worse, call the police
that we don’t parent.
And at what cost???
Our kids are growing up to be entitled brats.
What happened to kids just…
Respecting their parents,
honoring the rules,
speaking respectfully to all adults,
having real human conversations,
and caring about others first…
Where did we go wrong?
Sad because I think women are smarter than this and yet, we’re being made to look stupid by a bunch of politicians with agendas.
On both sides of the aisle.
I’ll be the first to say I don’t usually describe myself as a feminist and mostly because feminists typically have been defined as women who believe in the Right to Choose.
But, I am a feminist in that I believe women deserve equal rights.
Lately, we women have allowed the government to toss around the words “women’s rights” while they try to pass or change the Obama Care legislation.
We’ve allowed them to use scare tactics and threaten that one side or the other will possibly not allow women the right to birth control due to lack of funding or religious beliefs.
Are women really this gullible?
Will we really allow ourselves to be used as pawns in this political game?
I know, 100% certain, if I need or want birth control, I can find it, even if I’m poor.
Or, I just won’t have sex 😉
The resources are there for women.
We all know it.
And the idea that either the Democrats or the Republicans would remove a woman’s right to birth control is ridiculous.
The issue at hand is religious freedom, not women’s rights and we need to stop allowing ourselves to be used or we become the very stereotype that we’ve fought so long to get rid of.
My friend, Sunday is FABULOUS.
She writes at Adventures in Extreme Parenthood about her life with her two autistic boys and she.is.brilliant.
(and by brilliant, I mean B-R-I-L-L-I-A-N-T)
She is funny, and witty and down.to.earth and sometimes brutally honest about her life.
And, it’s refreshing.
Not only was Sunday the inspired mind behind the petition for Amelia Riveria’s transplant that was denied by CHOP, but Sunday has now outdone herself in the special needs community.
If you’re online for even a teeny tiny bit of time, you must be familiar with Ryan Gosling and the “Hey Girl” photos.
Well, Sunday thought that something was missing….
some “Hey Girl” photos for special needs moms.
So, Sunday created some.
And did not disappoint.
True to Sunday’s fashion, they.are.FABULOUS,
and an honest look at what’s going on in a special needs mom’s life.
(and what we all wish our husband’s would say, you know, if our husband was Ryan Gosling, had a clue and realized Valentine’s Day was next week…hint hint…)
Check them out.
Show them to your friends.
Even if you don’t know what it means to be a special needs mom, you’ll appreciate them.
