I know…that’s a big, heavy title, isn’t it? I don’t mean it to be! Really, I try to keep most of my posts light hearted. But sometimes you’ve just gotta tell it like it is. And this is one of those times. Just as all my blog topics start, this one began with something going on in world. Now…I’m probably not going to make any friends with some of what I have to say, but that’s okay…it’s how I feel and my opinion may not always coincide with yours. That’s part of what make us as humans so great.
Anyway…so I have these neighbors, two or three houses down who have kids or watch kids, whatever it is they let those kids out in the backyard and the kids scream, non-stop from about 2:30 pm to 6:00 pm EVERY single week day. Okay, now I don’t have trouble with kids playing…I like kids and a little play and a little noise is fine I was a kid once too and I remember wanting to go out and make some noise. What I do have a problem with is people being so inconsiderate to let their kids or the ones they are watching make so much noise for 3 and a half hours! Three and a half hours!!! That’s a long time to listen to screeching, high-pitched wales while trying to work. Am I wrong? Does anyone else agree that its completely inconsiderate for my neighbors to let this go on? I’d really love to hear what you have to say.
Regardless of what I should do about it, because that not the point of this post. No, I just had to bring this up because I think there is a huge problem in our world today where people are so focused on themselves, that consideration for others is hardly even a thought of anymore. I was not brought up that way though and neither was The Hubby. We were taught to respect people, to drive with consideration, to walk safely, but as fast we could through intersections with respect for the drivers waiting for us, to not crowd people in lines, to pick up our dog’s poop and to not make noise that might disturb our neighbors, just to name a few. Unfortunately I think many parents today are teaching their kids to only think about themselves and I think this is very, very sad.
Now I know this is probably going to start a huge debate. But what do you think?
