The topsy-turvy world we live in and the need for improved parenting
Opening our eyes to the real reason for increasingly restrictive governmental controls, is likely to raise our awareness, to the need for improved parenting skills. The more dependent we become on government, through the shirking of more and more of our responsibilities as parents, the weaker we all become.
Governmental controls – be it sugar tax, authoritarian policing or more restrictive laws – are being implemented, simply because of the increased responsibility government feels. Indeed, it may well be the case, that government is happy to see this increased responsibility, and our subsequent dependency, as this increases their power. We could say, as a result of our blindness to these matters, there is now a mentality of fascism, insidiously growing and creeping unseen into government policy.
“Right now the need for improved parenting skills is greater than it’s ever been. If we continue to shirk our responsibilities, with our understanding and skills as parents becoming lost and confused, we hand over ever more of our power to government.”
Change, can at times be slow, and this is no more evident, than in our need (or that of the elite) to determinedly hold on to our antiquated class system; a system that’s as much alive today as its ever been.
We have the privileged and we have the underprivileged, or working class and middle class; the third option, upper class, is something of a joke these days, and it would be a mistake to think this status is only measured in terms of finances.
For example if we’re raised in an environment lacking in proper emotional boundaries, between adults and children, where positive adult role models are missing and/or where feelings of safety, security and love are also lacking, then we’re most certainly one of the underprivileged, and money may have no baring on this whatsoever.
“In fact family environments where money is scarce, yet where there’s an abundance of love, always do better than those poor in both comfort and love.”
To take the topsy turvy out of society would be to educate the underprivileged into understanding why they’re considered so (the elite and their need to restrict education for control).
To educate children about how to think and fully understand cause and effect – as apposed to what to think, and the do now, think later principle – is part of the solution. Continuing to reinforce our collective, limiting beliefs, and building on our failing methods of policing society, is no answer at all. Policing and laws will never bring about emotional maturity.
“Emotional maturity comes from effective role models in the home.”
Emotionally stunted adults raising children is just part of our current disastrous and messy recipe. Until we teach our children, about the benefits of thinking skills and emotional maturity, our police force and laws will continue to become increasingly intrusive and authoritarian (think Big Brother).
When it comes to the belief systems, that directly influence our expectations and experiences of life, they’re easily changed when we’re told: it’s okay to question them, and their origins, at a very early stage.
“For example, many of our belief systems relating to religion, politics, family life, what it is to be successful in this world, and how to get there, are in fact extremely restrictive.”
Now, although all of this may sound very accusatory or judgemental, it’s not until we open our eyes, and take collective responsibility, will we begin to make the necessary adjustments in current, dysfunctional thinking.
