Have you seen or heard about the video of the middle school kids making their bus monitor cry?
If you haven't, you can watch it here. Although I would not recommend watching it because it's terrible.
I made it through about 47 seconds and then I stopped it. It goes on for about 10 minutes. From what I can gather, what those children say to this lady is horrid.
It almost made me cry. What are we teaching our children?
I wonder if those kids are the exception to the rule or if they are more common than you'd think.
SFD & I have this conversation often. Why are kids so disrespectful "nowadays"?
I think the answer is because we allow them to be. As a parent, I know this is true. Superfrykid is awesome. She really is a great kid. But there are times when she is very disrespectful and she seems to think that when I put her in check that I am a horrible person. Guess what? I don't care. I'm not here to be her friend. I'm here to be her mother.
That's my rant for the day.
PS - More than $600,000 has been raised for the bus monitor, Karen. That's kind of awesome. On the other hand, respect is priceless. But if I had to choose, I choose respect AND the $600,000.
