The reality of human actions has always been horrifying to say the least.
Internet communication has opened doors to every household on the planet, allowing the innocence of our children to be held captive in a world of negativity and destructive behavior.
We, as parents, must take action and sharpen our own awareness as to what our children are doing when it involves networking on the Internet.
We do not allow our children to talk to strangers on the street or let a stranger in that knocks on our door, do we? Then why is it, that we allow them to surf the Internet or have a Face Book page without our knowledge? Many children do have unmonitored access to the Internet and yes, they do join Face Book and other social networking sites when they are not being watched. This is where our awareness as a parent is vital.
There has been numerous amounts of excellent information made available to each of us, such as the video above, which screams out to parents to be more aware and to take control of our children’s freedom on the internet. Safety for our children begins in our homes.
The negative thinking and what people are willing to do to make money at the cost of our children’s innocence has always been out there. The Internet has only made is readily available in our own homes at all times.
Where there is a demand, there will be a market. That saying holds an ugly truth when it involves pornography and the innocence of the human mind.
We continuously point the finger of blame in many directions for what may possibly be avoided in what we allow to happen in our lives.
In sharing this post with you, I can only hope that you will become more aware in the fact that you have done everything in your power to keep your Internet doors locked in the name of the safety of your children~
… after watching the hidden imprisonment that this child is allowing to surface through his self-expression.. I could not help but wonder, do we as parents choose to not identify with our children’s feelings and self-esteem or do we just not see them? Does it take a child’s threats of suicide to open your eyes as a parent that you are missing something vital to your child’s happiness?
This video may or may not be real, but what is real, is the message it is sending to you as a parent… please stop for a moment each day and not only talk but listen to your child. Keep an eye on how long he/she spends on Face Book, texting others and even the time he/she chooses to be alone.
~YOUR awareness as to where your child’s thoughts are, is not only essential to their happiness, but vital to their survival~
~You chose to be a parent… act like one~
Motherhood can be the most joyous part of our lives. It gives us feelings of love, of being needed, of being responsible, and so many more positive things. It also gives us many challenges that we are never prepared to deal with. The challenge that I am going to share with you, is of a mother having to deal with an abusive child. Whether the abuse stems from chemical abuse or learned behavior, it is still abuse. These questions are my thoughts.
When does being a mother to your children, switch into being a prisoner of their world?
When does being a mother that nurtures and breast feeds her sweet helpless child, turn into a mother ducking from that grown child’s blows?
When does being a mother say we have to stand by and watch our children fall into the grips of addiction?….
