FROM LITTLE FEARS TO BIG FEARS!

 

When you are a kid. With parents who raised you from little to no parenting. They leave you with more fears than any kid can handle.

I grew up not knowing what’s what! What to expect from life itself. The human race as well.

When I started school! My mom did not tell me why I had to go to school. I just had to go that’s all. The hard part of going to school was? The teachers! Young kids! Meeting the “real” old shool” teachers. I had to convert to each and every teacher because of the ways and means each teacher had as to how to teach the class.

Paddling! Was the normal punishment at the time. either a yardstick of paddling. One fmr. the student brought in a block of wood for one of his teachers and asked him if he wanted him to make him a paddle? He agreed! Each and every time one of his students acted up! He would say:”just wait until I get my paddle!” “you will be the 1st one to get it!”

FEARS BUILD!

I can remember! At home. Watch tv! Tv stations would air public service announcements (PSA”S). There would be a certain amount of scariness in them. I think it was to get the viewers attention. It sure got mine!

One was about seat belts, smoking, air pollution. It’s the way! they went about it! That increased my fears.

I think our biggest fear is! Not knowing of the what’s to come! Has to be no.1! We all have that!

It’s worse when you’re a kid with parents! But! they are nowhere to be found when you needed them.

Today! My fears have been reduced to little! to none! I do have my usual everyday fears as anyone does. But in my 60’s! They are not as bad as they were in my younger years.

NO WONDER! WE LEAVE HIGH SCHOOL ALL SCREWED UP!

 

Ever since the time. I went to school. Different teachers! different methodologies In teaching.

I can remember the one too many teachers. And how they taught us to learn, think. Some were strict! Some not too strict. Some in-between.

Now! I am not one for conformity! Far from  it!

But! If you remember? There was some that really got to us and made us really learn what they were teaching. And some? We would think to ourselves: “when is recess, lunchtime, end of school?”

I had teachers who used the yardstick, paddle, or! To the principal’s office. Like that worked! I had one teacher, who would grab my hair and move my head back & forth.

Keep in mind! At that time I was dealing with teachers who were so close! To retirement! But! Not close enough to suit me!

It’s the inconsistencies that screw us up! We go from one teacher to another, to another so on.

Teachers more than likely think:”if I can learn it!” “you can too!” CRAP!

Each child! Is different!

There’s a saying. “it’s not so much what you learn!” “it’s how you learn!”

To put it another way? For teachers. “it’s not what you teach!” But! “how you teach it!”

Ever since! The court ordered busing was implemented! It had done more harm than good.

I knew a guy who knew someone who said to him: “The Federal judge, in that case, wanted that case so bad!” “He could taste it!”

I can remember a time when! Growing up! We as kids knew we had better behave because the kids and their parents knew my parents as well!

NOW! The parents are hoping that! The kids will grow up on their own and turn out like they did! Really????????

Parent today! Don’t even know who their kids hang out or know!

And so it goes!
