I was out food shopping & a rude little kid was Yelling at his Mom! He was calling her a Bitch, cursing & being extremely disrespectful!ย ๐Ÿคฌย All she did was verbally calm him down & told him he was not being “appropriate”. As she repeated herself, he got Angry & more disrespectful!

If I ever dared do that to my mom, she would have Whooped my Ass up & down the aisles!
I got hit as a child & I turned out somewhat fine.

I wouldn’t even think of talking to my parents with such disrespect.

I knew my boundaries.

It reminds me of the time when my 5th grade friend & I were at the mall.

He decided to show off in front of me &
called his dad an Asshole!

I was shocked!

I felt so awkward…

Strangely enough, his dad didn’t react & continued to walk alongside us.

Then about 30 mins later right before we ate, his dad stopped dead in his tracks,

gave my friend the look of death & slapped him in the back of his head!

My friends baseball cap flew across the food court.

He screamed a with deep accent.

โ€œYou piece of SHEET!”

Then his dad kicked him in butt!

โ€œYou Madar Fakkar!โ€

My friend started crying.

It made quite a scene at the food court.

Soon After, everyone realized that it was good ole parenting.

They shrugged & went about their way…

Back then you could hit your own kids without being arrested.

The public beat down from his father worked, because I never heard my friend curse ever again.

I think if a kid is extremely disrespectful a good spanking is needed.

As a kid, I got a lot of plastic coat hangers & random sticks broken over my back.

I’m not saying it’s ideal.

But Boy did I learn the meaning of respect!

I found it fascinating how my parents made weapons out of Anything they found when they were angry.

If you’ve ever gotten whopped with a fly swatter you know about the ninja reflexes of a pissed off parent.

I don’t think corporal punishment has to be that severe…

I’m not saying that you should ever punch your daughter in the head.

But a light slap on the rear should be sufficient to lay down the law in extreme cases.

It’s crazy how some the parents don’t discipline their children.

These are the exact families you see out disturbing the peace as their kids run around like loud idiots.

Jumping all over & throwing shit at random people.

I hope to be a father one day & I would love to discipline my kids with respect.

As a parent, I would definitely educate myself on non violent methods of parenting.

I guess you gotta train them young…

Some parents Master the stare of death & they don’t need to put a hand on their kids when they are disrespectful.

While others would slap the shit out of their child if their kid called them a bitch.

What are your thoughts?ย ๐Ÿค”

Do you believe in ever hitting your kids?

I’d Love to get your Perspective?

Hopefully, when I’m a parent

I’ll make the right choices.ย ๐Ÿ™‚

I was taking a walk around my neighborhood and as I am going up a hill, I see this big brown scary pitbull walking toward me. HE was HUGE! Looked about 200 lbs. He had thick bulging muscles that flexed violently as he walked.

I froze for a moment because I quickly realized that there was no owner with the dog!

At first, my body tensed up just in case this dog decided to attack me.

The giant pitbull then started to walk faster and faster towards me and if his eyes were focused directly on me.

I remembered to stand straight and to not show any fear
because dogs can sense that.

As he got closer he started to pick up speed…

He just lunged at me!

I clenched my fists and tensed my body to prepare for what was to come.

He jumped on me with such fierce excitement!

He then started to smell me and lick me to see if he knew me.

I then saw his tags and soon realized that it was a stray dog that got away from his owner.

As I started to walk nervously, the dog stayed right by my side

putting his rock hard head and shoulders against my legs in a submissive way.

I soon realized that he wasn’t a threat.

I felt bad for the dog and realized his owner is probably worried
looking all over for him.

I was amazed at how quickly this dog connected with me and looked to me for direction.

Being that he was lost and prob wasn’t used to fending for his own.

He was looking for someone to attach to and be led.

As I was walking with this gentle beast,

I started petting him and showing him love.

He reciprocated by rubbing even more against me.

It’s heartwarming to feel the unconditional love a dog as for you,

I quickly bonded with this dog that I thought was going to rip my face off.

At that moment I had an epiphany!

I realized that this dog represents the people in our lives that look up to us and want us to lead them.

Maybe they don’t just jump on you and lick your face to show this,
but they are all around you.

Whether they’re looking up at you with their tiny innocent eyes,

or watching your videos on Facebook,

perhaps it’s someone close that always asks you for advice.

These people NEED You!

As leaders, we have a two-part purpose.

One part is to be strong for people that need to be lead

and the second part is to be vulnerable when we are weak

so people can be strong for us.

Most importantly, we have to lead by example because we never know who is watching us.

Often times, we don’t realize how many people depend on us for guidance.

I walked around my neighborhood for about an hour,

going to every single house trying to see if I could find the owners for this dog.

As I continued to walk I was starting to feel hopeless that I would never find the owner.

Then out of nowhere, a Black SUV pulled up right in front of us,

and slammed the brakes!

A distraught older woman jumped out screaming and yelling.

Brutus! Brutus! Brutus!

I soon realized she was the owner of the dog.

She gave him a big hug,

thanked me with tears in her eyes!

She said that she was looking for Brutus for the past few hours.

She was So Happy that to finally get him back!

I had my last bit of eye contact with Brutus as his tail was wagging with joy!

I saw his Huge Grin in the back of the SUV right before it pulled off.

It’s interesting how certain things come into your life

and by breaking your pattern it inspires something else.

That is the beauty of life.

In that brief experience, the unconditional love of a dog taught me the importance of living by example.

After all, what you DO on a moment to moment basis has a far greater impact than what you SAY.

The world is changed by people’s Examples
and not by their opinions.

Like my brown bro says:

” BE the change you want to see in the world.”

P.S.ย Rafaelaย & I are getting a puppy.ย ๐Ÿถ
