Step It Up, Parents

Hi Everyone.

I want you to know that Team Trash doesn’t like your kids.

Are they cute?  Sure.

Do they make me smile?  Absolutely.

But I don’t like them.  Don’t leave them with me.

But this post is about your kids.  I recently spent time with my niece and nephew going through their school work.  And it was eye-opening to say the least.

Parents. We have to stop coddling our children.

Let’s break this down.

School gets progressively harder.  All students learn differently.

Hold your children accountable. 

You need to make sure that your child is learning the material and putting in the necessary work to do well.

You need to check their notebooks and folders to make sure they are doing their homework.

You have to ask them about what they are working on.

You need to work with their teachers so that you are an informed parent.

Having taken these steps, you can then start having your children take more ownership.  I know that I was sick of my aunt asking what I learned today, so I told her without being asked.  I hated having to explain every bad grade, so I made sure they didn’t happen.

Teach your children that life is hard.  They can’t cry all the time.  Whining and giving up are not going to fix the situation.  Kids need to know that putting in the hard work early pays in dividends later on in life.  Kids need to have the ability to problem solve.

You can’t force teachers to give them good grades.  Even if the teacher is bad at their job, your child is already in their class.  Don’t let them give up.  Don’t feed their temper tantrums.  Hard work is necessary and is a lesson every person needs to know.

People not teaching this lesson is why young adults think they “deserve” special treatment at work.  Avoiding this lesson blocks them from developing healthy coping skills that you are going to need.

STOP BABYING THEM AND MAKE THEM SWEAT GAHT, DAMMIT!

Okay, I’ve calmed down.

Like I said, I worked with my niece and nephew.  They are both smart kids who are completely capable.  But they are both struggling to deal with the hard work that comes with subjects that don’t come naturally to them.  I found myself in the tough position where I had to be nurturing while being straight up.

So that’s the long and short of it.  Have you run into this in your interactions with kids these days?  Am I being too hard on this generation?  Let me know in the comments.

You Must Be Out of Your Mind

I’m sorry to keep ranting but who the FUCK made this?

This is literally one of the dumbest things I have ever seen. If you are willing to have sex with a woman under any circumstance, you are responsible for the outcome.  Whether it’s a child or that deadly gonorrhea, whatever happened is the responsibility of both you and the lady.  I am SICK of men trying to duck the responsibilities of raising a child when you are the reason it exists.  It doesn’t matter what the woman did to you, it doesn’t matter what you wanted, you had sex with her and impregnated her.

That child has done nothing to hurt you.  

That child deserves the very best that life has to offer.

You are responsible for providing for that child.

You want to know what prevents pregnancy?  Masturbation.  You want to know what helps prevent pregnancy?  Condoms.  If you don’t have enough self control and enough brainpower to know that the withdrawal method is load of horse shit, you probably should be sterilized.

Stop blaming these women for not wanting to have abortions.

Stop trying to force women to have abortions.

Stop blaming women because you were too stupid to use protection.

Stop blaming women because you aren’t man enough to take care of your kids.

Stop blaming women because you weren’t raised right.

THIS IS YOUR FAULT!

PREGNANCY IS YOUR FAULT!

THAT CHILD IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!

It is 2014!  We shouldn’t have to keep saying this to you.  If you don’t want to have kids, take the steps to prevent pregnancy.  Always use your own non-expired condom (and don’t keep it in your wallet).  Make sure you don’t lay down with any woman who you don’t want to have a child with.  Don’t have sex with just any trick from the club.

You mean to tell me you don’t have enough self control to sleep alone for a night? Weak ass…

Okay, let me calm down.

We live in a world where too many kids are being raised in single parent homes.  The thing about it is that kids should not be forced to live without knowing both of their parents.  Regardless of the circumstances related to their birth. Just because you don’t want to have anything to do with his or her mother, that does not mean the child should suffer because you are immature.

Too many men are running around acting like children because you weren’t raised to own up to your choices and mistakes.  The moment you decide to be sexually active, you have made the decision that you are ready to be a father.  If you aren’t ready for that, you need to take REAL steps to prevent it from happening.  And if it does happen and that woman decides to give birth, you should immediately make changes to take care of your child.  Actively choosing to deprive your child of the very best makes you scum.  As far as I’m concerned, you can burn in hell.  But that’s just me.

I’m going to take my rage out on video games.  Leave your thoughts below.
