Anti-Trump Protests Sign of Failed Parenting

Since news of Donald’s Trump election victory over Hillary Clinton, the liberal media has been blaring reports of thousands of people protesting in major cities throughout America. To be honest, it’s not surprising given the changes in America over the past two generations.

To begin with, if you look at any of the election maps showing what counties Trump and Clinton won, you will notice that the small blue areas indicating Clinton victories are where these same major cities with protests are located. Large cities seem to have become bastions of brainwashed or uninformed liberals and the vote and protests prove it.

Then we have a country that has been reshaped by liberal social do-gooders, many of whom say that parental spanking is a form of torture or child abuse and should be banned.

When I was growing up, it was common practice for parents and teachers to use biblical discipline on misbehaving children. Proverbs 13:24 states:

“Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.”

Proverbs 10:13 states:

“On the lips of him who has understanding, wisdom is found, but a rod is for the back of him who lacks sense.”

Proverbs 22:15 states:

“Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline drives it far from him.”

Proverbs 23:13-14 states:

“Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you strike him with a rod, he will not die. If you strike him with the rod, you will save his soul from Sheol.”

And Proverbs 29:15 states:

“The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.”

Once the US Supreme Court threw God, Jesus, Christianity and the Bible out of our schools and public lives, the public schools began brainwashing millions of young Americans with anti-biblical thinking. This is the same time as when liberal social do-gooders came out against spanking.

Yes, I admit that too many parents were not disciplining their children but just outright beating them, but that’s not a good enough reason to ban sound biblical discipline from the schools and homes.

When I was growing up, we got spanked. If we ever threw a temper tantrum, especially in public, we got spanked. If we misbehaved in school, we got spanked. I remember one occasion where I deservedly got spanked by my teacher, then by the principal of the school and then by my dad when he got home and found out what I had done. I learned a valuable lesson that day that was never repeated because I knew the consequences.

Today, we have one to two generations that have abandoned spanking as a form of discipline. Instead, kids just get repeatedly yelled at, threatened, grounded or given time out. BIG DEAL! How many times have you been in a store or other public place and witnessed a kid throwing a temper tantrum? What did the parent do? Chances are, the parent only yelled or threatened to do something to the child if they didn’t stop and most likely that did little to stop the child’s spoiled behavior.

Many parents today just yell and threaten their children, but it doesn’t take a young child long to learn that the threats are often empty and meaningless or that the punishment is not enough to warrant their change in behavior.

I’ve noticed that we have a generation or two of spoiled brats who feel entitled to everything they want, usually at the expense of someone else. They grow up as kids demanding this toy or electronic device or gadget and if they don’t get it they throw a temper tantrum knowing that mom and/or dad will give in just to shut them up. These are the same spoiled brats who grow up to be Democrats and expect the government to hand them everything they want without working for it. They want you and me, hardworking Americans, to pay for everything they want so they don’t have to work for it. And when they don’t get it, they throw their temper tantrums because that’s what happened in their families growing up.

Take a close look at the majority of those people out protesting the election results and you will see a generation of spoiled brats that are the product of failed parenting. They are protesting, or should I say throwing their temper tantrums because they didn’t get what they wanted in the elections.

My response to them is grow up! If you don’t like the American system, then LEAVE! Millions of Americans didn’t like the election results when Bill Clinton or Barack Obama won the election but you didn’t see us out on the streets throwing public temper tantrums. Instead, you saw many of us working to support someone else to eventually take over, such as George W. Bush and now Donald J. Trump. That’s the American way, like it or not.
