My tips for living happy, healthy, and green!

Where Are The Manners?

Where have peoples manners gone? Do people still teach there children to say “Please” and “Thank You”? What about the idea of “Do unto others and you would like them to do unto you”?

I have noticed that so many people in today’s world think they are privileged and everything should just be given to them. Yesterday we were sitting at a friends house handing out candy and one little girl came up and we said go ahead and take one and her response was “I Know”…no thank you!

How about all of these reality TV shows that just show tons of bad behavior and no respect for others. Why are these shows popular….personally I can not stand them. They are everything that is wrong with today’s society. These people are making tons of money to run around party, drink, fight, and show complete disrespect for everything around them.

And then I watch the news and I hear about all of the horrible bulling going on in schools. I can’t believe what these kids are doing and saying to each other. We need to teach our children how to respect others and treat others as we would want to be treated. That is what I was always taught growing up. I know kids will always be kids to a point, but relentless bulling…should not be tolerated by parents or teachers.

What about those people who always drive to the front of the line when sitting in construction. That drives me crazy and every time I think “Does this person really think they are better then everyone else sitting in line waiting to get through” “Is the place they are going really more important then where everyone else is heading?”

We need to get back to some old fashioned morals and values. Teach our children how to be respect people who care about others and the world around them. People should not be able to just do whatever they want and think there are no consequences. I hope this starts to change before my little boy starts school.
