The Voice of Reason

Dear readers,

To my supporters who are parents please stop what you’re doing and for once listen to the voice of reason. Who Am I? I am the voice you constantly try to ignore or engage in conversation about when and how to have the “the talk “with your children about “the birds and the bees” yes that talk. The first dilemma, who’s going to take the lead, in other words, will mom do the talking, while dad nods his head in agreement or vice versa. What are you afraid of? That you will open the door for your children to explore areas of sexuality that they may not be thinking about? So, you practice your spiel, and plan the perfect time and place.

Hello, Mom, Dad, this is the voice of reason. While you’re wasting time, yes procrastinating, delaying, and stalling, giving this important gift of knowledge that can help your children to made sense of the roller-coaster of the age of adolescence into adulthood; they are out there in the world exploring uncharted territory. You think that they are too young, well while you’re pondering the appropriate age to pass on this information, as the voice of reason it is my duty to remind parents of the increasing number of teen parents who didn’t get “the talk.”

Are you in denial that your little Princess isn’t interested in boys because she spends all her time in her bedroom talking to her girlfriends on the phone. What do you think they are talk about? Boys, who lost their virginity, and how and when they hope to lose theirs. Your all-star handsome son who is the schools most popular athlete, with a bright future ahead of him, but there is only one problem, no one told him the penalty for having unprotected sex with all the girls who offered themselves up Mr. popular.  Parents why aren’t you ready to introduce the topic of safe sex, birth control, and to teach young girls how not to get themselves caught in a situation that they did she coming; hey, I am the voice of reason and I will say it, young males need to be schooled at an early age that, Force Sex is another name for “Rape.” Ouch, did that hurt, am I coming on to strong and wrong?

Parents have you taken a good look around you? The world has changed since the days of the baby boomers, when boy meets girl, boy likes girl, boy courts girl properly, if boy wanted to touch girl, they got married and that was the end of that. This what todays parents are up against; the internet is their worst night mare. Ask yourself a question, why is your children under the age of 18 on social media? Cable TV is another ingredient that adds to our children behaving oddly. It calls “ratchet tv” meaning this generation are followers of TV characters on reality tv and they imitate what they see, and who’s paying the bill for that? Parents why are you paying an enormous amount of many to transform your 12-16-year-old daughter into a fully mature 21-year-old complete with, expensive weaves, nails, boobs and so much make up it difficulty to see who’s under the mask. The world isn’t the root of problem.

I am the voice of reason and I say it starts at home. What say You?
