The Problem with Education!

The problem with the education system today can be summed up in one word - PARENTS! Ok not all parents are the problem there are many parents that believe that the teacher is a professional and knows what he or she is doing, they are supportive and are more than happy to co-teach their children in a way that they grow up to be responsible, knowledgeable and contribute to society. These parents do not come rescue their children, even when it is the hardest thing to do. They let their children learn from the choices they have made. To all of these parents out there THANK YOU!

Now to all the parents that are so quick to come rescue your children I want to ask you to stop and think about what you are teaching your kids.

  • It is ok not to follow through because I will get bailed out.
    • This may be because the parents know that they are not good parents and if they rescue their children they may look like a hero for a few minutes, in the eyes of their children.
  • It is ok not to have to work through difficult times.
  • It is ok not to be responsible.
  • It is all about myself, and what I can do to better my position.
The list can go on and on about how damaging, rescuing your child can be! Really think about the appropriate way to help your children...........Help in a way that teaches good skills not bad skills!
