Does Your Child Take A Knife To School?

Posted in Britain, Child Discipline, Children, England, English Schools, News, Parenting, Primary Schools, Teen Violence, UK with tags , , , , on 29/04/2014 by floroy1942

It seems inconceivable that the British culture can so stoop to the levels where violence rules and our children are arming themselves to go to school. The number of knife and other crimes is rising steadily in the nations schools with children as young as eight being caught with an offensive weapon. A survey discovered that as many as 1000 children have been found  with weapons at school in the last three years.

These range from handguns, to air pistols, meat cleavers, axes, knives and even cutthroat razors. One child even had a taser, and you have to ask where did they get that from? From reports, many parents are complaining that schools do not do enough to stop the flow of weapons in the schools, but in my view, why should they? Those who are ultimately responsible for their child’s upbringing are the very ones who are complaining. What kind of parent allows a child to take a meat cleaver or an axe to school, let alone those with guns of various types. Their answer will be of course that they knew nothing about it, and then the big question comes: Why not?

It has been suggested that all schools have metal detectors placed at the entrances, which means we will eventually go down the same road as many schools in the USA. As a tax payer, are you prepared for the billions that would cost? The scary thing is that this survey does not cover the whole country for more than half of the police forces involved refused to release their figures. Forget not that the same situation exists in many colleges and universities in the country.

You should ask yourself why children feel it necessary to take a weapon to school? The main answer is that all the other kids have one! But another over-driving factor is the fear that they may be attacked by another child. So where has all this hostility come from? We have bred a generation who refuse to obey all laws of decency and respect, simply because they were never taught to. In their world ‘it’s every teen/child for himself’. You may wonder where the violent streak in today’s teens has come from, well, you need look no further than the violent games they play on the computer for hours on end. Playing these games when not realizing they are just games often leads to a violent streak in children.

If parents had taken more time to teach their offspring how to behave, and to show respect for the laws of the land we would never have sunk so low. But as it is, many parents are more interested in being down the pub and the children can look after themselves. Many children stroll into the house at whatever time they feel like and nothing is said, no-one ever sits them down at an early age and teaches them right from wrong and how to behave. You can ask many parents at weekends, or of an evening, where their children are and they have no clue.

Killed By A Child In Her Own Classroom

Killed By A Child In Her Own Classroom

Just this week a teacher was stabbed to death by a pupil in front of the class. Anne McQuire, had served in the teaching profession for more than forty years and was due to retire in September of this year. She was much loved by those she taught, but that did not save her from a fifteen-year-old with a savage mentality. So how much further are we to go down this road.

This culture of violence has blossomed ever since uncaring parents passed on the upbringing of their children to child-minders and nursery’s, expecting them to do their job for them. Few children today have a proper upbringing because many parents do not take the trouble to teach their children right from wrong. And please Ladies, don’t give me that old excuse; “I have to go to work!” That is part of the problem, children coming home from school to an empty house with no supervision of their activities at all. Many parents today are happy if the child is watching TV or playing computer games because at least they are quiet and out from underfoot.

Young Thugs

Young Thugs

These days the newspapers are always full of children as young as eleven committing murder, especially of old folk during an attempted robbery. Because of the current laws they rarely get a proper sentence because of their age. We are breeding a generation of young thugs in many parts of the country, and one thing is certain, without someone putting a stop to it life will be hell in ten years time. Since the seventies, violent crime, even that involving children, has spiraled through the roof compared to fifty years ago. You can forget the government’s crime statistics as so much propaganda because it does not seem to include child crime which has been on the rise during the past ten years.  Do not forget, when children think they can get away with something they will go for the whole nine yards. It is time parents started taking responsibility themselves for the upbringing of their children instead of passing it on to others.

French Government Puts Itself Above the People

Listen To the People

Listen To the People

Can anyone tell me why it is that governments think they can do as they please, and not take public opinion into account? On especially contentious issues like ‘gay’ marriage, governments make decisions without any reference to the wishes of the people they govern. It’s like we don’t exist in their mind at all as they sit in their ivory towers and pass into law something that the majority of the population are steadfastly against.

Now nine European countries, fourteen world-wide, and some American States, have made ‘same-sex marriage’ legal, along with the right of these people to adopt children. It seems that as soon as a politician is elected, they forget who they are representing and just do whatever suits them. That is one of the main problems in the world today, a total lack of accountability by politicians!

Anti-Gay Marriage Demonstration - Paris

Anti-Gay Marriage Demonstration – Paris

Ever since this ridiculous law was pushed through, the streets of Paris and other cities have been thronging with people demonstrating against the law. No-one in the government bothered to ask the people if they wanted this law, and on such an important issue as this, where morality itself is in the dock, they should have held a referendum. I suppose though, the one good thing from their point of view is that they have certainly secured the homosexual vote at the next election!

Bah!

Bah!

As the deviants start adopting children, in ten to fifteen years time I foresee the possibility of big problems with mentally mal-adjusted teens, for no-one can predict to date what affect a child having two fathers instead of a mother and father will have on the child’s development. I suspect in many cases, after years of being bullied in school and a lack of friends, many will not develop properly into normal, responsible adults. But we shall see!

What Happens When the Child Learns MEN Can’t Have Babies?

One UMP member of  the French parliament, Jacques Myard, is reported as saying: “The law has been passed by the governing party “by force” and his party would review it if re-elected”. He went further, saying “There is a ‘huge gap between this government and the citizens’ over the marriage issue. This is something we cannot accept because of the fate of the children. Those people are playing God, because they want to marry, but it won’t stop at this stage. Then they will adopt, and then we will have children in families where there is no father or no mother.”

By then of course it will be too late to turn back the clock, and society will be left with no option than to deal with the problem as best they can. By then of course, all the politicians who caused this disaster will either be long dead or in retirement, so what do they care?

I am quite convinced that had a proper referendum been held in France, and all other countries that wanted to legalize ‘same-sex marriage and adoption’, the law would have received a resounding ‘No Way!’ from the people. We, the common people, are nothing to the politicians except at election time, when they expect us to vote them back in.

The Difference Between Then and Now!

Posted in America, Britain, Children, England, Europe, Modern World, Parenting, Senior Citizen, UK, USA with tags on 12/10/2012 by floroy1942

WERE YOU BORN IN THE 1940’s, 50’s or 60’s!!

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us.

They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a tin, liver pate and didn’t get tested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, our baby cots were covered with bright coloured lead-based paints.

We had no child-proof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets.

 As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags.

Riding in the back of a van – loose – was always great fun.

We drank water from the garden hose pipe and NOT from a bottle.

 We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this.

 We ate cakes, white bread and real butter and drank pop with sugar in it, but we weren’t overweight because……WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!!

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day. And we were O.K.

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have PlayStation’s, Nintendo’s, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 99 channels on cable, no DVD’s, no MP3’s no surround sound, no mobile phones, no text messaging, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat rooms……….

WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.

We played with worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.

Made up games with sticks and tennis balls and although we were told it would happen, we did not poke out any eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them!

Not everyone made the team. Those who didn’t had to learn the ropes.

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!

This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!

The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned  HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL!!!

And if YOU are one of them! CONGRATULATIONS!

Britain and the Devil’s Children

Posted in Britain, Child Discipline, Children, England, Parenting, Teen Violence, Teens, UK with tags , , , , on 14/04/2012 by floroy1942

Amazing how some young children can become monsters, and should perhaps have been strangled at birth. Three stories of occurrences with children caught my eye this week and prompted this post. When it comes to teenagers in Britain, most people are afraid of them, especially if they are hanging around on the street corner ahead wearing the inevitable hood. They are totally unpredictable and may let you pass unmolested, or they may on occasions pull a knife on you. It all depends on their mood and how they see you.

Children are our little darlings and wouldn’t hurt a fly, right? Well, I have to tell you that just this last week there were three cases that I for one find shocking, and totally unacceptable.

The Dreaded Hoodie

The first concerns a 15-year-old Gainsboro’ boy who has just been sentenced to six years in prison for raping two young boys – one of whom was just five. It came out in court that the offences, which took place between April 2008 and September 2010 with a further two in January last year, first occurred when one of the victims was five years old, while another seven-year-old was repeatedly raped over a period of time. In summing up the judge said he could not avoid handing down a custodial sentence due to the repeated nature of the crime.

In another case, the mother of a young Downes Syndrome sufferer is appealing for help in a vicious hate campaign against her daughter. It seems that childhood photos of her sixteen-year-old daughter Heidi had been hi-jacked from the website of the local support group she ran, and along with others, are being used in an internet hate campaign against people with Downes Syndrome on Facebook and other sites. The mother reported the offensive images to Facebook which were eventually removed. It does however indicate how sick some youngsters are that they would post such hate-filled pages on the internet for no apparent reason other than to deeply hurt others.

In Northampton last Monday, two girls saw a group of young boys throwing a very small kitten between them like a ball, and when they got tired of the sport they tossed it from a bridge into the stream flowing underneath. Eventually, once the group departed, the girls were able to retrieve the poor animal from the water. Thankfully, it survived the ordeal and is now in the hands of the RSPCA.

Gang Violence – Girls Too!

None of these incidents are related, but it shows the kind of animals in the guise of youth we are raising these days, and makes me wonder how much further down this road to hell we are going before parents finally decide to become parents and teach their children how to behave. Britain has the highest number of child criminals in Europe and the numbers are rising.

Apart from handing out tougher sentences the government can do very little about curbing youth crime, for the true responsibility lies with the parents alone. They cannot blame the government or the schools, for it is their legal and moral duty to raise their offspring to become responsible citizens in today’s society. In this many are sadly failing and have done so for years, hence the problems we have today. It is no excuse for a parents to yell that they cannot control their kids because they are too wild, for if that is the case they started trying far too late and are not putting enough energy into it.

I have always been convinced that a child must know who the boss is in the house from the cradle. It is no good allowing a child to dictate things for the first two years because; “well, he/she is just a baby” because by the time they get to three and you try applying the discipline you will surely find it is far too late. This happened to some good friends of ours, for now their life is hell and the daughter is only four-years-old. Now she throws tantrums and screams her head off until they give way and let her have what she wants. I would never venture to say that she will eventually grow up into ‘a bad ‘un’, but the possibility is there.

Advice for knuckleheads:

Saturday Night in Any English Town

Now we sit with a generation of youth who think they can get away with murder, literally, and can go out on a Friday and Saturday night and get paralytic drunk without any fear of retribution for their actions. So how bad is it going to get when they become parents and their children are growing up? I leave you with that thought!

Roy.
