I wonder; does anybody care that George Clooney didn't choose fatherhood? Or is it just the women that are judged?
I have seen people beg Children Services to get their kids back, meanwhile their kids are begging Children Services not to go back. For some reason, it seems like they have that instinct to see their children and parent, even though they are terrible at it, neglectful, put the child in danger and can't adequately provide for the child. It's really selfish.
I also have a friend, and her daughter is by a dead beat dad... but every now and then he tries to reach her to see his daughter. She doesn't even call him dad, but he'll try to contact her around the holidays or his birthdays. I don't know... I don't understand it. I guess it's just selfishness.
Point is, some people aren't fit to parent and don't know it. When they do know it, bravo. I have seeing kids mistreated.
One reason that I am fine about not having children of my own is because I think that even though people have parents they could also use mentors. And one group that I think really needs mentoring the most are those 20-somethings who are now out on their own but don't have much in the way of education or experience and so still need guidance.
Have you ever seen someone talk to their parents and then utterly dismiss what their parents say but then someone else could say the same thing and that person will give careful and due consideration? I can understand that since people are used to parents telling them what to do all their lives, so they may dismiss it automatically as "dad just being dad and mom just being mom." But when someone who doesn't have that parental attachment tells them something they may consider it more.
That's why I'd like mentoring to be more important in this country, especially, as I said, to young adults.
Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
