A Learned Behavior


We do our best when raising our children
And our best is all we can do.
So if you bicker about the little things
Their going to do it too.

And if you go around constantly picking up after them
Giving them no responsibilities
When they move out on their own, they will be lost
because they won't know their own abilities.

You say all they do is complain when you
ask them to do something. Well that's too bad.
Teach them to respect the rules in your home,
Even if it makes them mad.

Because if you don't teach them to respect others
How do you think life on their own is going to be?
Sure, they'll get angry, and say hurtful things
But later they will be grateful.Just wait and see

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
