As I look around my community I see so many babies being raised by babies,or shall I say being carried around by babies.
Because from where I sit these babies are not being raised at all,they are just existing and some of them are not even getting the basics to sustain themselves in this difficult and changing world.
I want to scream sometimes when I see parents or a parent degrading a child for being a child,I want to scream when I see a parent or parents feeding their child junk food from a fast food outlet.
I see parents who will come into the store and buy things for themselves but tell the child with them that they can't afford to get them a loli-pop,what's up with that type of selfiness?
Just because you can have a baby don't mean you should have one,a lot of young people today would do well to either not engage in the act where they may have a child or would do well to practice birth control.
Many people who look like me have not a clue as to how the world inwhich they live in really operates.
Many depend on the media in all of it's forms to depict a life style and image for themselves.
I work with people who would prefer to remain on government assistance then to fend for themselves,simply because that's all they understand and it's easier.
I don't understand the men in my community today,many have sadly laid down the armor that their god have given them to be the protectors of their communities.
Many of the men in my community would prefer image over substance today,because it's easier,leadership comes with a heavy toll.
Not many in my community are prepared or willing to do what I call the dirty work of this life,that being tolling and working to support the children we have brought into this world.
Many have just rolled over and have accepted what the TV or other forms of media has said is how you are suppose to act and carry your self in this world.
When I see parents or a parent more concern about the car they drive or the clothes they wear then the welfare of their child I cringe and want to scream!
If I could make a law right today in this country,the law would make it so hard for you to have a baby,abortion would be the rule of law if you had no understanding of parenthood.
Before you could become a parent you would be required to attend parenting classes and fully grasp the reality of parenting.
Now many would ask me have I lost grip of reality by saying the things above?
No,but have anyone else a answer for the problem of babies having babies in my community?
