The first of these was the economic and social pressure which
persuaded women that it was appropriate for them to take full time
jobs. This lead to the generation of 'latchkey kids' who lacked
the home supervision, control and the teaching of respect that
earlier generations enjoyed.
I’m one of those women who has a full time job. Good thing, too,
since I didn’t get married until I was 32. My husband is disabled,
and I’m the only one working in our family. I’ve never wanted
children, and didn’t have any.
Women took jobs because they were sick of men controlling them
through money. And women actually like to do things in life, not
just look after kids and the house. Have you not learned that by
listening to the women on this forum? And who says it’s the women
who have to stay home, anyway?
You don’t mention in your post that men and boys commit most of the
crimes in this world. Your own country’s crime statistics
"Men outnumber women in all major crime categories. Between 85
and 95 per cent of offenders found guilty of burglary, robbery,
drug offences, criminal damage or violence against the person are
I agree that the increase in crime is mostly due to bad parenting.
But it does not mean that Mom has to be there when Johnny get home.
It means that parents have to enforce rules. It’s hard work raising a
child, and it seems that a lot of people are just lazy about the
effort it takes to enforce those rules. I also agree that corporal
punishment is appropriate at times. My parents divorced when I was
young. I and my two younger sisters have not felt the urge to commit
crimes, because we valued the respect of our parents, and didn’t want
to disappoint them.
I also agree sometimes we go overboard with trying to protecting
people from things. But the government can’t regulate the methane
from termites, now can it? To suggest that we allow all pollution
because nature has it’s own, is ridiculous. We should try to
regulate what we humans do that is unecessary. Just be glad they’re
not trying to regulate YOUR methane…
