Broken Children

Our current culture encourages people to demand what they call freedom of choice and equality, but it’s really about narcissism and entitlement.  Dysfunctional sexuality, including abortion, is readily available.  Personal preferences, at all times, must take precedence over others’ rightful legitimate due.



People talk of wanted and unwanted children the way they refer to wanted and unwanted matbroken childrenerial goods, hobbies, and animals.  A child is considered a mere accomplishment.  Couples are encouraged to pick and to choese their preferred sex, eye color, and other traits, in their child.  This has left us with a world of broken children, who are seen not as subjects but rather as objects.   They’re absolutely seen as objects in the every day usage of the term, mere commodities who are exploited in order to cater to others’ preferences.

    A lot of food for thought here. Children are people with their own minds and goals. They aren’t clones of their parents or expressions of unfulfilled dreams. It’s so sad to me when I see moms forcing their daughters into dance and other things just because THEY never got to (and I’m sure it’s the same with dads/sons/sports).
