I agree with you about children needing good, strong, positive role models. but they also need discipline, which the role model will not be able to
give, without going to jail, in today's society.
I have three amazingly strong, successful brothers, and their children are lost. They were given too much. They are too entrenched in social media,
and modern society's ideology. I have one brother that escaped that pitfall with his children but it cost him severely.
He does not allow his children unsupervised time with the internet, he and his wife, puts a ship load of time and money in teaching and working with
their children. They both have great grades, are extremely productive in school. Both have full scholarships at a couple of prestigious private
schools, and him and his wife have to make appointments to see each other to have personal time together. Everything goes into keeping their children
on track. One is graduating this year, the other is graduating two years from now. So far it seems to have been a good investment.
My other brothers are fighting a losing battle against a bunch of selfish, entitled, disrespectful brats. Not because they are deadbeat dads, or
because they don't provide for them. They go out of their way trying to spend time with them. They just don't have any drive, or ambition, and if I
hear one more time, "I didn't ask to be born." "You brought me into this world, it is your job to take care of me." I promise you I will be posting
from jail myself.
I love them but I can't stand them. Took all the deadbeats out of my will and trust. Left everything to my Mother and my siblings. If their children
get anything. I won't be from me.
