You’re Teaching Adults, Did You Know?

“Did you notice?”

I asked my husband that question recently, and he just nodded.

We were watching an adult who acted just like a little spoiled child.

Ever seen that?

And how it’s harming us all?

Sure you have!

And there’s a remedy for it, an easy remedy.

And you can play your part.

We see so many adult-sized children floating around and directionless, these days because someone forgot to train them for their jobs.

(You know how immature you feel when you arrive unprepared–like a little bad girl…)

So where are the trainers for the adults who act like little rotten kids?

Look in the mirror.

You see, the training for the job of being an adult comes during childhood, don’t you think? And we adults must do the training.

There is no other really effective and efficient way.

I wanted my children to learn, during their childhoods, how to be great adults. Not greatly over-sized children.

I wanted them to arrive prepared.

I know you want the same thing for your children.

Let’s raise our children to maturity while we can; the day comes when they will rule us.

Let’s all think more about home schooling next year.

    1. Bless you, dear Jackie!
      I do know where you stand.
      The main thing is to stand, at all! And you do. The fact that you stand for your children’s betterment is high praise to your understanding of motherhood and womanhood.
      Praying the last 3 weeks will be uneventful. ❤ K

  1. Yes. This. My boy-men will not grow to be man-boys, so help me God. Neither will my girls grow into women with a princess complex. As far as it is in my power, by the grace of God, they will be grown-ups when they grow up!
