Psychologist: Today’s College Students Too Fragile

92

According to psychologist Peter Gray, there are larger problems on today’s college campuses than just a fierce love of political correctness. Writing for Psychology Today, Dr. Gray says that today’s students “are increasingly seeking help for, and apparently having emotional crises over, problems of everyday life.”

Dr. Gray argues that a generation of “helicopter parents” has turned out a generation of adults who cannot bear the burden of independence. But, he notes, he does not blame the parents themselves – at least not entirely. Instead, he brings condemnation down on several destructive trends:

Parents are in some ways victims of larger forces in society—victims of the continuous exhortations from “experts” about the dangers of letting kids be, victims of the increased power of the school system and the schooling mentality that says kids develop best when carefully guided and supervised by adults, and victims of increased legal and social sanctions for allowing kids into public spaces without adult accompaniment.

So basically the point is that today’s college students are weak, dependent, and suffering from the delusion that life wouldn’t be this difficult. And Gray lays the fault right at the federal government’s doorstep. “The increased power of the school system.” That says it all right there. Combined with a mentality that says “self-esteem” is the greatest gift we can give a child, we couldn’t have ruined these kids’ lives any more thoroughly if we had tried.

Sadly, this trend is not going away. We’ve moved beyond participation ribbons and not keeping score, though. No, now we’re not even allowed to punish students for acting out in class. In the name of social justice, schools are putting a clamp down on suspensions, particularly when the offenders are minorities. Not only are kids protected from harm and protected from failure, they are now protected from consequences. How could this possibly go wrong?

Look, be the kind of parent you want to be. If you want to hover, hover your heart out. If you think a kid should acquire a few scrapes along the way, back off a little.

But for God’s sake, don’t send your kid off into the world without understanding that his actions have consequences. And they can’t just be the kind of consequences you dished out yourself – spankings, time outs, etc. They have to understand why. They have to understand that Mommy can’t bail them out of trouble. It’s only natural to over-protect your kids, but you’re not doing your child (or the world) any favors by raising an entitled brat.

Whenever you hear one of these experts telling you how to raise your kids, think about the source. Are you watching the liberal media? Might they have an ulterior motive for the advice they’re giving you? It’s worth mentioning that the federal government doesn’t gain power when things are going well. This beast feeds on fear and failure. If Dr. Gray is right about today’s feeble man-children, it could be that was the point all along.

      I agree with you. We have got to get the word out about how bad Socialism is and that Capitalism is what America was built on. The Debate the other night—All that was on that stage was Socialists and Communism. All that they promised would take us to a Communists Country and this cannot happen in America!!! Please VOTERS WAKE UP!! Learn the difference btwn socialism and Capitalism

      1. MAHB001 says

        I trust the Republican candidates will do an adequate job of describing the difference, but I fear the election is on the fix….

        Currently, both parties are controlled by socialists/communists. On the Republican side, the socialists are in the form of Boehner and McConnell. They are socialists in Conservative clothing…

        The public also assumes that the Democrats are keeping the Republicans honest, and the Republicans are keeping the Democrats honest when it comes to counting the votes….

        But what happens when both parties are controlled by socialists?

        “It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”
        Joseph Stalin

        Will the politicians count our votes? Will the American people’s voice be heard?

        1. Seldena says

          I agree with your comments and questions. Somehow we need to get the governor’s of our states to demand VOTER ID! I am in GA and we have voter ID and it is the only honest way to have a honest election! Call your Governors!!

          1. MAHB001 says

            Unfortunately, I live in California…

            This state needs to be removed from the Union for not upholding the Constitution of the United States.

          2. Mark Lahti says

            So do we here in WI as of this year thanks to Gov Scott Walker.

          3. absinthe says

            Make voters have an IQ over 44. We went through this in the ’50s and ’60s. The vote even in 1964: it was clear that 65% said that the most Americans wanted fat welfare checks, open borders and let the poor bastards die who happen to come behind us. This was the LBJ vs Goldwater election, 1964. Up or down. I could not imagine that people would be so cruel, but that is the way the cookie crumbled.

          4. glenn398 says

            absinthe an I.Q. over 44 you want to eliminate over half the democratic voters?

          5. absinthe says

            That was the idea. If you figured it out, you must have an ID over 44.

          6. glenn398 says

            Don’t know about I.D. but think may be slightly over 44 I.Q.

        2. Michael Dennewitz says

          As I’ve said many times.. THERE WILL BE NO ELECTION!!! Approx 6 months beforehand, the HTNIC will “cause” a riot, almost uncontrollable, and he’ll declare martial law, then declare himself dick-tator!
          We HAVE NO CONGRESS!
          The HTNIC does exactly as he pleases. His husband moosechelle takes vacations like they were free. Two queers in the pod! Where in God’s name are all the expert snipers when this country really needs them? Good grief, the Kennedys were “outer” for one hell of a lot less!!!

          1. Mister007 says

            That is what I have been saying for years after he said we need a force better than our army and under his control..That remark should have started a fire under people but no they want FREE STUFF so they are deaf to the truth..GOD BLESS THE USA.

          2. MAHB001 says

            0bama has FAILED at creating that army. And I believe he has run out of time…

            While I believe Michael is correct in his assessment that 0bama would love to extend his stay in office by declaring himself a dictator. This too will fail, because 0bama failed to create that personal army…

            I credit Michael and those like him that continued to post his warnings as the reason 0bama was not successful.

            On the other hand, Liberals have rigged the elections in the past and I do not think any votes are actually being counted anymore.

            I believe there will be no true election as the fox is watching the hen house as to how the votes are being tallied.

            EVERYBODY will be disenfranchised this next election. Nothing will be left to chance…

          3. MAHB001 says

            You think the wicked old witch of the liberals would let that happen???

            That would essentially be stopping Hillary’s coronation…. I’m gonna grab my lawn chair and some popcorn because her head is going to explode…..

        3. Just Saying says

          The votes for POTUS last term were counted in Spain.

          1. MAHB001 says

            A practice that should be stopped immediately.

          2. Angry Grizzly says

            How did the Presidential ballots get counted in Spain? It was because Barry’s puppeteer George Soros had a buddy there that offered to count them. The question should have been; why are we subletting the counting and verification of the votes of this Nation’s highest office to a firm outside of the United States? Name me ANY OTHER Nation that has placed a man on the moon and safely returned him back to earth? You are going to attempt to convince me that we are incapable of counting our own votes??? http://www.discoverthenetworks.org

      2. Robert says

        America WAS NOT BUILT ON CAPITALISM,……. capitalism was used yes, but it was not even one of the foundational principles of this nation.

        1. Mister007 says

          Then tell what it was built on, that should be simple for you..

          1. Robert says

            Principle 1 – The only reliable basis for sound government and just human relations is Natural Law. Natural law is God’s law. There are certain laws which govern the entire universe, and just as Thomas Jefferson said in the Declaration of Independence, there are laws which govern in the affairs of men which are “the laws of nature and of nature’s God.”

            Principle 2 – A free people cannot survive under a republican constitution unless they remain virtuous and morally strong. “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.” – Benjamin Franklin

            Principle 3 – The most promising method of securing a virtuous people is to elect virtuous leaders. “Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt. He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who … will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man.” – Samuel Adams

            Principle 4 – Without religion the government of a free people cannot be maintained. “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports…. And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion.” – George Washington

            Principle 5 – All things were created by God, therefore upon him all mankind are equally dependent, and to him they are equally responsible. The American Founding Fathers considered the existence of the Creator as the most fundamental premise underlying all self-evident truth. They felt a person who boasted he or she was an atheist had just simply failed to apply his or her divine capacity for reason and observation.

            Principle 6 – All mankind were created equal. The Founders knew that in these three ways, all mankind are theoretically treated as: 1. Equal before God. 2. Equal before the law. 3. Equal in their rights.

            Principle 7 – The proper role of government is to protect equal rights, not provide equal things. The Founders recognized that the people cannot delegate to their government any power except that which they have the lawful right to exercise themselves.

            Principle 8 – Mankind are endowed by God with certain unalienable rights. “Those rights, then, which God and nature have established, and are therefore called natural rights, such as are life and liberty, need not the aid of human laws to be more effectually invested in every man than they are; neither do they receive any additional strength when declared by the municipal [or state] laws to be inviolable. On the contrary, no human legislation has power to abridge or destroy them, unless the owner [of the right] shall himself commit some act that amounts to a forfeiture.” – William Blackstone

            Principle 9 – To protect human rights, God has revealed a code of divine law. “The doctrines thus delivered we call the revealed or divine law, and they are to be found only in the Holy Scriptures. These precepts, when revealed, are found by comparison to be really a part of the original law of nature, as they tend in all their consequences to man’s felicity.” – William Blackstone

            Principle 10 – The God-given right to govern is vested in the sovereign authority of the whole people. “The fabric of American empire ought to rest on the solid basis of the consent of the people. The streams of national power ought to flow immediately from that pure, original fountain of all legislative authority.” – Alexander Hamilton

            Principle 11 – The majority of the people may alter or abolish a government which has become tyrannical. “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes … but when a long train of abuses and usurpations … evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.” – Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence

            Principle 12 – The United States of America shall be a republic. “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America And to the republic for which it stands….”

            Principle 13 – A Constitution should protect the people from the frailties of their rulers. “If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary…. [But lacking these] you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself.” – James Madison

            Principle 14 – Life and liberty are secure only so long as the rights of property are secure. John Locke reasoned that God gave the earth and everything in it to the whole human family as a gift. Therefore the land, the sea, the acorns in the forest, the deer feeding in the meadow belong to everyone “in common.” However, the moment someone takes the trouble to change something from its original state of nature, that person has added his ingenuity or labor to make that change. Herein lies the secret to the origin of “property rights.”

            Principle 15 – The highest level of prosperity occurs when there is a free-market economy and a minimum of government regulations. Prosperity depends upon a climate of wholesome stimulation with four basic freedoms in operation: 1. The Freedom to try. 2. The Freedom to buy. 3. The Freedom to sell. 4. The Freedom to fail.

            Principle 16 – The government should be separated into three branches. “I call you to witness that I was the first member of the Congress who ventured to come out in public, as I did in January 1776, in my Thoughts on Government … in favor of a government with three branches and an independent judiciary. This pamphlet, you know, was very unpopular. No man appeared in public to support it but yourself.” – John Adams

            Principle 17 – A system of checks and balances should be adopted to prevent the abuse of power by the different branches of government. “It will not be denied that power is of an encroaching nature and that it ought to be effectually restrained from passing the limits assigned to it.” – James Madison

            Principle 18 – The unalienable rights of the people are most likely to be preserved if the principles of government are set forth in a written Constitution. The structure of the American system is set forth in the Constitution of the United States and the only weaknesses which have appeared are those which were allowed to creep in despite the Constitution.

            Principle 19 – Only limited and carefully defined powers should be delegated to government, all others being retained by the people. The Tenth Amendment is the most widely violated provision of the bill of rights. If it had been respected and enforced America would be an amazingly different country than it is today. This amendment provides: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

            Principle 20 – Efficiency and dispatch require that the government operate according to the will of the majority, but constitutional provisions must be made to protect the rights of the minority. “Every man, by consenting with others to make one body politic under one government, puts himself under an obligation to every one of that society to submit to the determination of the majority, and to be concluded [bound] by it.” – John Locke

            Principle 21 – Strong local self-government is the keystone to preserving human freedom. “The way to have good and safe government is not to trust it all to one, but to divide it among the many, distributing to every one exactly the functions he is competent [to perform best]. – Thomas Jefferson

            Principle 22 – A free people should be governed by law and not by the whims of men. “The end of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom. For in all the states of created beings, capable of laws, where there is no law there is no freedom. For liberty is to be free from restraint and violence of others, which cannot be where there is no law.” – John Locke

            Principle 23 – A free society cannot survive as a republic without a broad program of general education. “They made an early provision by law that every town consisting of so many families should be always furnished with a grammar school. They made it a crime for such a town to be destitute of a grammar schoolmaster for a few months, and subjected it to a heavy penalty. So that the education of all ranks of people was made the care and expense of the public, in a manner that I believe has been unknown to any other people, ancient or modern. The consequences of these establishments we see and feel every day [written in 1765]. A native of America who cannot read and write is as rare … as a comet or an earthquake.” John Adams

            Principle 24 – A free people will not survive unless they stay strong. “To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace.” – George Washington

            Principle 25 – “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations — entangling alliances with none.” – Thomas Jefferson, given in his first inaugural address.

            Principle 26 – The core unit which determines the strength of any society is the family; therefore the government should foster and protect its integrity. “There is certainly no country in the world where the tie of marriage is more respected than in America, or where conjugal happiness is more highly or worthily appreciated.” Alexis de Tocqueville

            Principle 27 – The burden of debt is as destructive to human freedom as subjugation by conquest. “We are bound to defray expenses [of the war] within our own time, and are unauthorized to burden posterity with them…. We shall all consider ourselves morally bound to pay them ourselves and consequently within the life [expectancy] of the majority.” – Thomas Jefferson

            Principle 28 – The United States has a manifest destiny to eventually become a glorious example of God’s law under a restored Constitution that will inspire the entire human race. The Founders sensed from the very beginning that they were on a divine mission. Their great disappointment was that it didn’t all come to pass in their day, but they knew that someday it would. John Adams wrote: “I always consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand scene and design in Providence for the illumination of the ignorant, and the emancipation of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth.”

    3. cvxxx says

      That is downright silly. Parents have abrogated their authority to “experts” and the state for too long. That has nothing to do with Socialism and everything to do with believing every person with a brainstorm. Children raised in a cocoon was the goal of nothing bad ever happening the little prince and [princesses.
      Our parents bought into it then the evil of PC and Multiculturalism seeped in. Now we have a government that wastes billions in the Middle East where it is clear they do not understand anything that is been going on for the last 100 years.

      1. MAHB001 says

        They entrusted their cherished children to the “Education system.” I doubt any of them thought the “Education System” would be this corrupt.

        Home school your children now….

        1. cvxxx says

          Swiss Boarding schools! Most parents do not have the ability to teach higher subjects. But parents could take a interest in their local schools and school boards. Too much time on testing not on teaching and allowing disruptive students. Military boarding school for the disruptive,not expulsion. No more school free vacations for disruptive students.

          1. MAHB001 says

            There are numerous online programs designed for homeschooling online now.

            If 10% of the people pulled their children from public schools the education system would collapse…

            It really needs to be done…

          2. cvxxx says

            I disagree schools need reform. Real reform. Parents need to back it up. teachers need to be paid professional salaries. Schools need to surrender en loco parentis too. The end of PC and helicopter parents which is one thing that home schooling cannot avoid. We also need to change the legal system yo allow free range children. There is a nexialist reform that has to be made.

          3. Jarhead says

            Good teachers teach because they love the job…….paying higher than “going rates” only encourages the problem Atlanta, GA just faced with teachers changing the wrong answers so their students looked smarter – – so they can keep their job & get a raise to boot!

          4. cvxxx says

            “love the job does not pay bills or high student loans. And judging by test results ends teaching into coaching for the test. Plus a lot of teachers cannot afford to stay when they have a family or other obligations with the peanut salary.
            My father taught for the love of it. However, he had side jobs to make ends meet.

          5. MAHB001 says

            I don’t disagree with your statement. Not sure what en loco parentis is… But, that is a different story.

            I guess I see the change being started by Parents that remove their children from a broken school system, forcing the change that is needed. That is pure Capitalism…

          6. cvxxx says

            En loco parentis is Latin for “in place of the parents” The school acts as if the institution was the parent.
            IMO removing the students from the schools will worsen the problem since school funding is by class size(population) The real problem is that there is a disconnect with school and the real world. college students who need “trigger warnings” and such should not be there at all.
            The first step in my mind is discipline starting in the home. And a end to over testing. Pay teachers a lot more.. Professional salaries at least the average of the community or higher for poor communities. Copy what Singapore does with their teacher program it is interesting reading.

          7. MAHB001 says

            Thanks, I learned something.

            I think that the parents need to take responsibility for parenting their own children. I also believe the school system is corrupt and has been taken over at the top by socialists with a different agenda.

            Those socialists/communists are conditioning (ideological subversion) the children via control of the testing. Common Core points out the fact that if one controls the tests, they control the curriculum.

            I do not know when this video interview was done but check out the prediction at 1:40 where Yuri states that the people (Radicals) of the 60s are taking up key positions of power within the Government, Civil Service, and school system…. I think of guys like Bill Ayers, and 0bama….

            While I do believe there are good teachers with good intentions in the system, not many of them are calling out the corruption when they see it.

            Ultimately you are correct, Parents must start teaching their children and stop relying on the system to be en loco parentis….

          8. cvxxx says

            We agree. IMO one start is assimilation and parental back-up. The time for experimental education is over. We know what works. Too much time is spend on what someone is wearing and not on teaching. The books have lots of errors(History) and leave out way too much. I would have no objection that real history with warts and all was taught at least at college level. What is missing is financial education and civics.
            A lot of those radicals had good intentions, but wrong methods. They paved the road to ruin.

          9. MAHB001 says

            It seems I forgot to insert my video…

            Here is the video I was talking about…

            https://youtu.be/mqSV72VNnV0

            I think those radicals were subjects of an experiment called ideological subversion, as to whether or not they have good intentions or not, history will tell that the results were definitely bad for the U.S.,

          10. cvxxx says

            Thank you.

      2. glenn398 says

        Cvsss you’re wrong I remember 25 years ago my son came home and proudly told me I couldn’t spank him anymore or the cops would come and get me, that was being taught in school back then. I told him where’s the number and he said why and I told him an going to discipline him when needed and needed the number to call for him. I said by the way where are you going to live and he said why and I said this is my home and after I call this number it will no longer be yours. That ended the B.S.

        1. cvxxx says

          ROFL!!!! My friend had her kid say the same thing. With the same answer! I never though of it as I liked living!!

          1. glenn398 says

            cvxxx guess discipline didn’t hurt him that much as he got his degree and ever since has been in the 6 figure income.

          2. cvxxx says

            Discipline kept me from trouble. I am for discipline as with out it there is no way of judging. When one is an adult those lessons that inhibit dysfunctional behavior pay off in an improved life.

    4. Sol_of_Texas says

      There are at least two kinds of socialism … international socialism (aka communism) and national socialism (aka fascism). American progressivism started as national socialism but has been redirected toward international socialism in the 21st century.

      1. MAHB001 says

        Pure socialism is not attainable on earth without removing evil from earth…..

        I don’t see any of these forms of socialism trying to remove evil from the planet…

        Therefore, all forms of socialism are doomed to a version of communism.

        1. Robert says

          The heart of mankind is rooted in evil, thus on this earth evil will ALWAYS BE PRESENT. ( someone is looking for a Utopian society that is in all actuality….. unattainable)

          1. Sol_of_Texas says

            I always like to understand how others define fascism, socialism, communism, marxism, collectivism, capitalism, republicanism, democracy, religionism, authoritarianism, and so on.

            I think utopia on earth (and in physical reality) is impossible to attain.

            There is an often stated misquote that “money is the root of all evil”.
            It is not so much money, itself, so much as a person’s mistaken “love of money” in which evil is rooted.

    5. Michael Dennewitz says

      And WE THE PEOPLE WHO ONCE EXERCISED POWER, CONTINUE TO SIT ON OUR DEAD ASSES AND WATCH THE TRANSFORMATION TAKE PLACE!

      WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA!!

      1. glenn398 says

        Michael with more on the government dole today then working we are now a minority that care and our only hope is that those on the dole are also too lazy to vote. Then again you have to have something to vote for as an example Obama or McCain. Now that is a choice of deciding which democrat you wanted to vote for and I had to hold my nose to vote for either of them.

        1. Gary says

          I always had said that it didn’t matter which one of those guys you voted for, either one would accelerate the downfall of America. One would just do it a little faster than the other. (It’s the old “lesser of the two evils” principle)

          1. Mark Lahti says

            I assure you that the other choice would not have put us in the mess we are in now. As bad as he was and is he would not have been so far to the left. He would not have violated the constitution as has the one in the hot seat now.

          2. rocky says

            The “lesser” of the two weasels would still have been better than the “greater” that you voted for !! Well… maybe not you, but they know who they are.

          3. Gary says

            … and can you imagine the “choice” we are going to get the next time around? Hillary and who-knows-who. And we as a country let this happen. 🙁

      2. daveveselenak says

        I’m with you: REVOLUTION will be the SOLUTION! mInr, NSA! Freedom doesn’t come free and a down-payment is needed! A communist takeover has been completed and to deny this is to be a fool, an enslaved fool at that!

  2. Mark Tercsak says

    What they are need of is a swift Kick in the Ass, enough of all this Psycho-Psychology-Bullshit ! Its Ass-Holes like this that created monsters like them, they destroyed the family structure. Most people lack Common sense, they think they know better than their elders, hey stupid your elders tried they exact same things you are doing now, and quite frankly it was wrong then as it is wrong now, in other words it does not work, Listen to your elders and you won’t waste time. The first thing is electing Socialist~Bolshevik~Democrats, quite frankly these people are con-men and lie to you and your stupid enough to believe, there is no frees lunches, and they could care less about the little guy, they think of you and I as servants, actually slaves and that they are above the law!

      …and nothing to say about progressive RINO’s?! There’s only been two parties in power and blame can’t go to just one of them, it has to be both.

      And I’m not saying that I don’t like the Republican platform because I do, but Establishment Republicans are “progressives” too and there’s not getting around that. They’ve proven it.

      You are so correct!

  3. Mr. Bengt Val Thulin says

    Psychology is the “Art of the Con”. Psychology by definition is a ” Cult”. “Religion”. ” Cult” being a “sect of people who believe fervenfly in what they do.” And “Religion” being “a set of rules and or guidelines that are lived by religiously.” People of psychology just want to con all others into believing that they are the authority on everything and that you cannot survive without them. Psychology is the only Region that has been allowed into our Laws & governments in Violation of the US Constitution’s “Separation of Church and State”. All person’s involved in creating the Unconstitutional Laws regarding psychology and or enforcing said Laws are GUILTY of Violation of US Code Title 18 Part 1 Chapter 13 Sections 241 & 241 (Violation of a person’s RIGHTS under color of Law) – that is 2 Federal Felonies for each person.

  5. Seldena says

    Young people do not understand the history of the Clintons, their crimes from the past. They have been taught Socialism and not Capitalism which this country was built upon. I pray their parents or another family member would care enough to sit them down and recall history to them! Really,they could do this for themselves. They just do not understand that Socialism does not work. We are a free to be just what we want to be in America. Success is there for them all if they choose!

  6. Bordeaux11611 says

    People should really take the time to read, “Liberalism is a Sin” by Don Felix Sarda y Silvany. This explains exactly what is happening today. People think that by ignoring God and doing their own “thing”, that they will have a happy life. Now we are finding out that we should have been reading the owner’s manual that God gave us and spending our time having a REAL relationship with our Creator, instead of running from Him!
    satan HATES us and his ONLY motive is to destroy us. He knows that he loses the battle in the end and he wants to take as many of us down with him that he can. Unfortunately, he has a presence in EVERYTHING! He is even in yoga, reiki, astrology, horoscopes, acupuncture, edgar cayce, psychics, etc. When you allow the wrong things into your life, you are giving him permission to come into your life, and also your family’s and friends lives. That is why we need to put on the armor of God EVERY day!
    All the “elite” and others who think that they are going to be given special favours (the illuminati, freemasons, the bilderbergs, hollywood, ” white magic” practices, etc.) are going to find that they are really victims and will be destroyed instead of ruling us!

    More Political Bullshit Progressive Rhino’s are Socialist-Bolsheviks , and quit calling them Rhino’s that is an insult to a magnificent creature, they are (REPUKES) they wanna make me vomit so I coined the term a number of years ago.

  9. Richard says

    I was told by. DSS that I couldn’t discipline my son and I told them to f*ck off,I’d raise my child the right way whether they liked it or not. They backed off. Stand up for your right to raise your children the right way,to teach them right from wrong.

    1. kotoc says

      When I was a child, my parents spanked me whenever I did something they had told me not to do, or NOT do something they told me to do. I was raised in a Christian family, too. Does that sound like a contradiction? It isn’t… you MUST enforce the rules in order to raise your children to be upright, moral citizens. Do I still blame my parents for using spankings for punishment? No. Plain and simple, I thank GOD they raised me to not be a liberal, over indulgent, pathetic, blame-throwing softie. I had to learn the hard way. These youths of today should also get the “hard knocks” early in life in order to keep order in civilization. Don’t get me wrong… I don’t always agree with “capital punishment”, especially if it’s too harsh, but a screaming, spoiled brat needs to know what is acceptable behavior.

  10. Mark Tercsak says

    We our on the wrong path, We need to get back to being Constitutionalists !

  11. Goodforall says

    That would apply to most of the millennials. They have been so brain-washed they will never get it. When they finally do pull their heads out it will be too late for them.

  12. peter says

    Their parents enable them to be this way as it is the liberal/PC way of life.

    1. Mr. Bengt Val Thulin says

      “Liberal/PC” is that “liberal/Personal Computer” or liberal/Psychology Control “? Just asking for clarification on a term I was not familiar with. No offense ment.

  13. Trisha55 says

    This is what comes of forfeiting your rights as a parent and turning over the education in both books and morals to the government. Pubic education is paid for by the government and will teach what they decide. It is up to you as a parent to truly educate your children.

    1. Jarhead says

      AMEN

  14. glenn398 says

    College students, I would say all the kids of today are in the same boat and the school has taught for 25 years now it’s not my fraught. So when they get out in the real world that doesn’t operate with these insane rules the youth of today crumble. What is going to happen if we go thru something like people had to do during the great depression? We as a society have crumbled to a level where I don’t think we can go much lower.

    1. Gary says

      “It’s not my fault” also goes along with “I can’t be wrong”, and it didn’t just start 25 years ago. I was married to a woman for 36 years that never ONCE admitted that she was wrong about something. It was either try to “frame” the situation so that it appeared SOMEBODY ELSE was actually to blame, or just “throw smoke” and divert the subject to something else. I also have a younger brother, who is 55 years old, that cannot accept an opinion other than his own without “going off” because his little mindset is being threatened. My wife, God rest her soul, voted Republican, but for the reason that many other people vote the way they do: “My father voted Republican (Democrat). If it was good enough for him, it is good enough for me!”. Voted Republican, acted like a dyed-in-the-wool Liberal. What’s not to like? Glenn398, these people are all around us … we just tend to notice the younger ones because, God help us, they are the ones that will be inheriting this country, and we may be the recipients of what they do.

      1. glenn398 says

        Gary I think we already are the recipients of what they have done to this country. At my old age of 75 have watched this country since Johnson’s great society go down the path of destruction. We are headed to a 3rd world country and it isn’t too far in the future.

        1. Gary says

          It’s all part of the deliberate breakdown of our society. Once we have been weakened enough, we will fall like every other great country/nation has throughout history. The strongest entity in this country has always been the white male, and this is the very group that is being targeted for everything. When you look at what is coming out of our colleges, the “men” (and I use that term loosely) act more feminine than the women. God help us if we get invaded by a foreign power. If that happens, all of a sudden these little brats will be called on to defend us. You can just imagine how THAT is going to shake out.

          Nope, it will be the Old Dogs like us (I’m not too far behind you at 66) that will have to try and step up and defend what is left. 🙁

          1. glenn398 says

            Yes you did on men as don’t see too many like the old days. We have already been invaded by a foreign power, Mexico and the thousands of Muslims Obama has dumped on us. The trouble with that kind of invasion is there are no battle lines and hard to fight like Viet Nam never know who was who.

          2. Gary says

            This is another deliberate step … re-arranging populations so that nothing is “homogenous” anymore. This helps break down a society. I forgot what the Politically Correct term is for this, but I do know that Theodore Roosevelt had once said that we have to prevent the United States from becoming a nation of “squabbling nationalities”. He knew what would happen if we came to that.

          3. glenn398 says

            So does Obama and that is why he is dumping most of those from the African nations on the red states. Phoenix used to have 1 1/2 percent blacks and we rarely saw any on the north side of the valley. Today they are everywhere like ants on an ant hill. He has been dropping them 5000 at a time both here and Tucson but most of them in Phx. I liked the news from Minnesota where the Muslin’s were bitching that there wasn’t enough Muslin type of food to spend their food stamps on.

  15. MidwayBill says

    It would appear that we are regressing as a nation when childhood is being extended into the young adult years. (The affordable Healthcare Act allows “children” up to age twenty-six to remain on parents health care plans).
    During the War of 1812, a young midshipman, 12 year old David Farragut, serving aboard the USS Essex, was tasked with commanding a seized prize ship and bringing it safely into port, which he did. Farragut went on to become an Admiral in the United States Navy and is noted for his victory in the Battle of Mobile Bay, in 1862.
    I am not advocating allowing children of such a young age into such hazardous situations, but my point should be clear.
    I was watching the news several years ago and noted that a high school graduating class of approximately 400 students had over 100 valedictorians. The definition of valedictorian is the student (singular) of the highest academic standing in a class. When there is 25% of a graduating class that is of valedictorian status, that is clearly not earned, but given, to make the students feel good about themselves. Real life is not as easy as that, and these students are not prepared to deal with real life. There comes a time when they have to actually earn a living, actually competing with others for employment. Employers (with perhaps the exception of government agencies) are not interested in just giving out jobs as a reward. They want employees that are actually qualified to do the work, and do it well.

    1. cvxxx says

      Actually,in most Western navies very young officers were normal. Pcism has robbed the youth of responsibility. Alexander the Great ruled in his father’s stead at 16.

    2. Gary says

      Sometimes I wonder about that. I have been with the company I work for for 22 years and have watched it morph from something that had principles and looked out for their employees to something that is little more than an extension of “high school”. I am appalled at some of the things I see on the company’s website showing the “free” food, beer and parties being thrown for the office staff (to keep their “interest”, of course, because that is how we have to handle the current “younger” generation. Can’t remember what letter-designation we are on right now.) and that they recently threw a “Parents’ Day” celebration for them. Parents’ Day? In an (supposedly) ADULT work place? This stuff is wonderful for High School, but this is the REAL world and you don’t bring Mommy and Daddy to your work place! This is a classic example of what you said about not having been prepared to deal with real life. And to think I have to deal with these little twits anytime I need something because they run our office staff!

  16. GMGuerrero says

    HOW TRUE.

  17. Ted says

    There is no respect in a lot of kids today. I notice this when a young man lets the door slam on my wife’s face as we try to exit a building. These kids and their parents would be appalled by the way I was raised many years ago. You were held to a way of growing up that if you bolted to outside the family or school rules, you paid and were taught a big lesson about respect and values. Teachers were allowed to administer punishment and when you were a clown, you were treated as a clown in front of the class while bent over the desk and a 3 inch paddle applied to your rear end, then you got it again when you went home.

  18. Calvin T Pooner says

    I am a parent. I disagree with this article. I actually think that you can never look after and watch your kids to much. We have so many dangers in the world today such as global warming, guns, and robots all of which have the potential to kill all of our children instantaneously at any second. I myself have permanently attached no less than 50 cameras and sensors to each of my children so I can monitor them at all times. I also have a fleet of drones hovering above them as well. In case they get into any trouble, I have lazer beams affixed to the drones, as well as a self destruct device attached to my kids so I can destroy them before anybody else does. I also want to have a mind control device installed in my kids so I can control every single one of their moves and decisions. I’m a model parent, according to Stanford child developmental psychologist and child expert Dr. Yolanda S. Huerta-Fernandez, who ironically doesn’t have any children because her vagina is in the shape of a rhombus, which makes child-bearing impossible.

  19. Ted says

    I learned early as a kid to listen to what my parents told me. If my Dad told me to cut the grass, and it did not happen, there were problems right now. My allowance was 25 cents a week and if I did not help my Mother, you were in deep trouble. And don’t even think about yelling at Mom for anything stupid because Dad knew how to take care of stupid.

  20. Bob Stewart says

    School kids today are crazy and psychologists have helped make them this way. How many school shooters are on meds for depression or ADD or other drug treated psychiatric conditions. When a drug says may cause suicidal thoughts, is it too much of a stretch to include hurting others? We come up with new illnesses every day that require dosing with drugs. We used to effect behavior with firm swats to the seat of the pants and it seemed to work until psychologists/psychiatrists claimed we were ruining our children. But we didn’t have many teenage pregnancies, murders and rapes. Kids said yes sir and no mam. They were always feisty, but were afraid of public embarrassment. Thanks Dr. Spock, you ruined many generations of cry babies.

  21. Gerald A. Reason says

    Any time you shield kids from failure, they do not learn how to deal with it. When you help them build “self esteem” through artificial means, the facing of the realities of life will shatter that false self esteem. When you continually change the rules to make kids “feel” better, they will not be able to fully adjust to the realities of life, when they leave that protected environment. In short, the “Ivory Tower Experts” have conned the American people into accepting a way of dealing with kids which is destroying their sense of reality and is doing everything EXCEPT prepare them for real life. In short, most of their ideas go against tried and true methods of teaching kids and, from my point of view, came from the pens at the rodeo, after the bull riding contests.

  22. ChuckW says

    “Self-esteem” is a word I would like to see ripped from the dictionary and never, ever uttered again. Studies are showing it’s destructiveness. After prayer/God began to be removed from schools (1962), the self-esteem movement came along. If you don’t know that your true identity is God’s beloved child, then where does your sense of worth come from? Voila, the self-esteem movement fills the gap, and we are reaping the devastation. This is no surprise.

  23. Alleged Comment says

    We are shielded from reality by TV, ride in cages, live in controlled environments of AC and refrigerators, many of us have never stepped in a mud puddle, and most have never seen a negro as “president”.

    So, can you blame them if they cry?

  24. Florio Vino says

    They are in most instances jus more pampered, Spoiled and badly educated young people that have to learn that the owe something to this once Wonerful Country, But undr the Obama and the fiuture looks real Bleak>

  26. A natural born American says

    Well what did we expect when this generation of college students refused to give up their babyhood by refusing to give up their pacifiers. I used to think it just about the ugliest thing to see whenever high school kids would come through my checkout line to pay for more pacifiers while they had pacifiers in their mouths. It was sooo mortifying to witness so many young adults who refused to let go of their babyhood. And now these same kids, who in reality are only the equivalent of toddlers maturity wise, think THEY are old enough and mature enough and wise enough to tell people, who matured at a normal rate, how to be good citizens. Every time I read a liberal’s post I mentally picture that pacifier. Wonder if they’re closet pacifier users.

  27. jdbixii says

    The “pampered person” psychological approach to dealing with important occurrences in the course of human events began sometime after the 1960s and the social, cultural, sexual and anti-establishment revolutions which fomented much of the change which is, arguably and by direct connection, the consequences of those revolutions.
    When President Kennedy was shot in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, the intercom system of the school in which I was a senior at the time announced the news, by transmitting the actual radio broadcast to the entire student body. This was an important news story and the school authorities decided that the student body should be aware of it. There was no consideration for the psychological or emotional impact of the story or the horrendous facts of the story, the gruesome details of the assassination of the president. No one called in the psychological-trauma counselors to deal with the emotional reactions of students to the news. It was not kept from us because of the variable and unforeknowable impact that it might have on us. The following week before the Thanksgiving Holiday, we had off so that we could watch the national spectacle of the president lying in state in the rotunda of the Capitol building, the funeral and the burial ceremony in Arlington National Cemetery. Tears flowed, but Dr. Handholder was not there to guide us through the valley of the shadow of death.
    Then came the Viet Nam war. Hello, graduating seniors, welcome to the hard, cold facts of life and death. Deal with it. That is what your enemy is doing.
    Not much has changed in the 50-plus years since that time, except the cheapened values which result when leaders do not uphold values of purpose or recognize and encourage or reinforce the unity of
    people around commonly held values and, insomuch as it is possible, maintains policies of peace which prevents destructive conflict and the sacrifice of life in the waging of it.
    The experience has hardened us, but reality is reality regardless of how we reacted to it.
    Keeping the truth from people because of the trauma it might cause have given us the administration we have today. Whatever will the people do when they find out the truth? The psychological-trauma counselors will do nothing to change the impact on the country. But Dr. Handholder will get his money and politicians will claim credit for having had compassion on the people by withholding the truth which would not have hurt them, rather have impeded a president and an administration from accomplishing what they have by being “the most transparent administration” the country has ever had.

  28. FloridaJim says

    This is one more blunder form the 60’s radical generation Dr. Spock taught “self-esteem” to the radicals who taught their children who taught their children ad infinitum we now have a nation of fools who can’t think for themselves and can’t trust their lying parents and have worthless degrees, with no available job for their very limited skills….thanks Dr. Spock, thank 60’s radicals thanks Obama. If we do not vote out all Democrats in 2016 America will become The Soviet Union , the radicals prime goal for 60 years and freedom will be gone forever. Imagine how these fools will stand and wonder what happened we are now in gulags and can’t say anything without being beaten. You brought it on yourselves.
