The most important lesson you or your children can learn.


I don't know about the most anything.
If I had a child and I don't.
So I have no skin in this game.
I learned as a rebellious teen, if it's not worth getting caught for don't do it. And the other was don't tell. DON'T TELL. " I don't know ", is a complete sentence.
This did not lead me down the road to felony convictions and years of incarceration, just the opposite. I am a law abiding citizen. A model little drone, posing no treat to authority of any kind. And best of all I love big brother kinna, maybe , yeah sure he's the bestest.

I realize it’s a joke, but that is not a message I would want to deliver to anybody.

Yeah bigass double edged sword and I feel for parents today as much as for kids today.
I was raised by a village, it's simple maths, parenting was a smaller number of hours a day than total hours.
The modern village (including computers) is much of why I've kept choosing to not spawn my own.
But because I'm part of a village, kids are one of the things I have.
Well, hafta wait for them to individually choose me as a part of their tribe, but they are then my village, kids today.
I sometimes see the sort of terrible mantle of motherhood (among those who care), that thing we see promoted as all joys and delights. Dads too of course, but I guess locally I see into more single moms particular parenting travails.
Maybe also kids with no dad at home are more open to knowing the men in their village.
I know as a kid I was shopping around for interesting examples to get clues from.
Not going into all the crap dumped on single moms here.

Anyhow, thanks for caring and trying.
Our future is in yer hands!
Likewise - my version is only one example - thanks for your thoughtfulness and all your efforts at understanding and caring.

If you do something wrong be brave enough to admit it.

And

You don't have to be friends with everyone but you can be kind.

And

I'd have read The Book of Virtues. This is something everyone should read.

There's no money above the fifth fret.

If you're in a band and you don't sing, you better own a van.
or the P.A.

Gotta quit my day job to do this thing more timely...
