Raising children

Raising children has always been a difficult job.  And I can only imagine how hard it is going to be as time goes on.  Today with computers out there and access to the Internet and the Web there is no way to control what and who they are communicating with.  You might be able to keep them children from it when they are really young and force them to do their homework, take music lessons (if you’re lucky) and stress how important education is, but it still doesn’t guarantee that any of that child-rearing is going to take hold.  I know because I have been there.  Every child, right from the moment they are born, have their own personalities and it doesn’t take long to find out who will listen and who won’t.

    Technology has it’s limitations, and you do not have to let them have access to it. I think keeping them busy (sports, music) they don’t have time to get into trouble. And they also get to start interacting with like minded people who will eventually become the friends they will listen to.

    • Many young people are into sports and music but they seem to prefer being on the computer playing video games. Times are changing and there isn’t much we can do about it. Many are on Facebook and make friends that way. They can also take classes online so perhaps it is a good thing. I hope so. What is worrisome is younger kids being on the computer and meet strangers who like to prey on the innocent.

    • I believe you’re right when you say they should get involved with sports. I guess we need to know their friends but children sometimes like to stay private, especially boys, so I am noticing.
