So, social media has created a climate of humiliating the child to discipline them.
Is this the right way to go, are we really fixing the problem or causing more of a problem?
Recently I had a discussion with my niece about her attire and through our conversation I realize that people just don’t know that sometimes they play a role in the horrible things that our children are subjected to. We need to
educate them on how to protect themselves. So here are some examples of
conversations you should be having with your children both male and female.
Male: Sagging pants has been an issue now for years. Just like the crack laws in the United States (War on Drugs) we want to place guidelines and attach fines with this issue. You don’t see fines being attached to Gothic wear or Dixie wear. Wake up! The conversation you should have is that you are making yourself a target. The same goes for the hoodie, you are giving them a reason to take aim and shoot at you. Shooters will say he looked like a robber. What happened to our professional attire like Duckhead shirts and khakis? Sagging pants and hoods on the head must go!
Females: We like to always get on the males, but my ladies. We are setting our children up to get raped, because of their seductive attire. This may not be the case all the time, but we must be in the preventive mindset. Tight pants, short skirts, and cleavage at the age of nine are a little too much. Think about it a child will act as they dress and do you want your child faced with negative attention from their peers. There is an adage that says, "dress for the position you want." I ask the question what position would you like your child to have. Cocktail waitress
or CEO. Prisoner or President? It only makes sense.
