This is a broad topic and we have 10 years to talk about as we see the horror unfold which it will. The last thing I want to do is bite off more than I can chew right now but I do want to broach this and at least start talking about it.
Parents are for the most part divorced these days (Saturn in Libra will address this) and most of the kids are being raised by single mothers. Even if the father is involved, he is not involved in a traditional way (applying discipline and supporting the mother’s nurturing). In fact, it is exactly opposite that – they weekend dad indulges the kid to compete with the mother and as a result there is not discipline anywhere. I am not blaming the men or the women as I feel both sexes are utterly responsible.
That’s enough to say for now but I wanted to post this conversation I had with the soldier over the weekend because it was eye-opening and then some.
“Well her kid is happy,” I said. “She can see that and I am sure it is heartening. I mean what do you want for your kid? You want him to be happy – to have a satisfying life and feel good.”
“What? You don’t agree?”
“That may be what the wife wants… the woman might want her kid to be happy.”
“The man wants something else? What so you want for your kid.”
“Oh, well let’s see. Can he defend himself? Did he get a decent education? If he wanted education, did he get the best education possible? Can he take care of himself and his family? Is he a man…?”
I draw conclusions from this. You?
