Happy Monday DDBSer’s!!!! Just wanted to drop a quick back to school “dnanigan” because as I was riding the elevator up to work, I caught a statement from a mom saying she wish uniforms were required back when her kids were school age. She mentioned how kids are cruel (they are, I say it all the time) and how she feel school life would have been a lot easier for her children because outfits would have been the same across the board. That’s possibly true but I immediately felt it’s not all about the outfit or the children being cruel but more so our duty as parents to instill in our children good values which of course includes respect for others. We are not all in the same economic class nor do we all have the same mindset about finances when it comes to what we spend our money on. A lot of parents truly budget their money and buying the latest greatest fashions for their kids may not be in the budget or maybe they prefer to provide a better quality of life for their children in the form of college funds, life insurance, etc. So teach your children early to be nice to others. Respectful. Will that ensure they won’t be cruel? No it won’t but what I will say is they’re impressionable in their little young lives. They’re sponges and I believe things can be instilled in them that they’ll carry a lifetime so parents, let’s teach em good things and pray for the best.
