    Why Are Our Rebellious Children Mad With Us Parents?

    in Education

    This segment is about why our children turning against adults and defying laws that are suppose to bring order?

    Question... Why is our rebellious children mad at us adults.

    What is the reason they feel no one cares about them?

    Why are our children stealing, killing, and destroying in their environment.

    What do we as adult/parent as an inheritance for them?

    I come to discuss whether rapid technological changes, economic woes, and high-profile violence in the media are causing Americans to unravel at the seams.

  • Episode 349: Educating our Children, and Liberty

    in Politics Conservative

    Why are so many young folks depressed about higher education and the cost of it? Some of the things I have seen lately and heard from our young folks, leads me to believe that they are not willing to do the hard work to get ahead and earn their way through life.

    Educating our Children Through Concepts Rather Than Following Books

    in Lifestyle

    What would it take to get the people to stop following others?  How can we expect our children to be leaders when we tecah them to follow?  Do you want a child capable of memorizing random facts out-of-context or a child who self-leads?

    What is the role of education to society?  Is it to protect the children and the future?  Are we doing so with the public education system?  Do we have teachers following administrators and children following books that offer little self-leadership skills?  

    This subject may get lively so be sure to take the microphone!

    Why Are Our Rebellious Children Mad With Us Parents: Part 2

    in Radio

    Do your adult children cuss at you and call you names and hurt you for being a good and decent parent?


    Children that were raised in a structured Home and environment, became adults to live chaotic lifestyles..did they do it to be rebellious? Why do children that become adults, decide to choose the road of disappointments and blame the parents?


    Did rebellious adult children that were children think their parents were strict, had other siblings that needed attention that were much younger then they or maybe they just did not want to grow up?


    Why some adult children don't want to be nothing like their orderly and structure parents?


    Is this behavior a rights of passage to let natural consequences take it's inevitable toll on their lives, when they don't want to listen to reason that would lead them to a much happier road to success and a life that is rewarding.


    When children that become adults don't want their parents to be a part of their lives, is it because they want to make them pay for all the good they did in their lives by using structure or order. 


    Should the parent just let go? Its their lives. Hold them accountable, don't let them make you feel guilty for thier choices. Just don't give up on them.


    Join us on a mission to empower parents on how to let go of their rebellious adult children  that love their life in chaos,and live the life you always wanted...PEACE!!
