I hate politics, and feel pretty much the same way as five year old Hudson Hinkley Does “YUCK!” But if you want to grab my attention as a mom and get me to listen in- start talking to me in terms even a five year old can understand and focus the conversation of the future of my children. ALL our children.
I want to be more involved in “conversations that matter” not ”Politics”- PLEASE! Stop wasting my time!
I don’t want to watch a bunch of grown men sling mud and create media chaos that distracts from the real issues at hand, and for god’s sake I have better things to do than listen to the endless rhetoric and wah wah cry baby antics. I’ve got noses to wipe, meals to make, laundry to fold, bodies to cuddle and story’s to read. I also have a full time job and I’m trying to make an income so that I can afford money to send my kids to camp this summer and to keep them out of the public school system because it’s a travesty.
We are seriously messing up the future of our children.
They collectively SIT for 8-10 hours a DAY passively taking in volumes of information so that they can be tested. They don’t move their bodies much , are not playing outside, are having their art and music classes cut, and eating a steady diet of GMO’s, Sugars, and artificial ingredients.
They have parents who are overstressed, overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated in their jobs who come home and are so tired that they can’t even find the strength or time it takes to engage with their kids in meaningful ways.
Because we are so dis-connected, and numb- our kids are phasing into more connectedness with video games, television, food and poor behavior. The results are tragic: anti-depressants, adderall and any other drug we can get into them so that they will COMPLY and not be “difficult” – We’ve taken away their freedom, and rights, and their voices because guess what? We don’t have any to give. Our country is filled with the unconscious.
We have become slaves to the dollar, the deficit, and the detriment and we have sold our personal sense of integrity, and our morals and values for a chance to be on reality TV. Double U TEE EFF?
Our children are angry, lonely, anxious, hostile, violent, and SAD. They need us.
This post isn’t about getting more votes for Barry Hinkley It’s about the lengths we need to go to for us to wake up and come together as parents in order for change to happen.
I’m grateful for the video that stars Hudson Hinckley – because our children SHOULD be starring in this “movie” we’ve created out of our lives. If you look around though you’ll see a burnt down hollywood of thugs, thieves, liars, and zombies.
We’ve lost our real authentic selves, our sense of integrity, nobility and duty.
What are we teaching these kids anyway? Kids model the behavior of adults, so if that does not scare you then nothing will.
HUDSON’s got my attention: You know why? Because he has no idea what he’s saying in this “campaign” video. He’s just a kid who loves his Dad and that’s about as simple and as complicated as it gets. All of our children are all trying to tell us something…
are we listening?
