Cyberbullying sign of failed parenthood
Re: “Woman ‘dismayed’ by Airdrie mother speaking out,” Nov. 2
I have to say I was “dismayed” by Wendy Nurcombe’s idea what Christianity and morality is about. She evidently represents the “progressive” crowd.
For starters, as a new resident, I hope that Airdrie is not a “progressive” place.
We already have a plenty of that non-sense coming from REdmonton.
Last time I read the Bible there was nothing about her imaginary ways of Christianity where everybody seems to be responsible for the “little misbehaving Johnny,” but himself and his parents.
I would suggest to Wendy to take on that task herself. Maybe she can pay for his self-esteem classes, and instill in him even more firmly that there are no consequences of any of his actions. So big surprise: yes, punishment fitting the “crime” is very much the Christian concept, and the only concept which works.
Maybe Wendy, you should read the Bible again and definitely let somebody to explain it to you, the real meaning.
Maybe you would find also that when people were clear on the responsibility and the punishment issues our civilization used to function considerably better than this progressive idiocy we are experiencing now.
Not to mention my teenage son could not comprehend what the supposed “cyberbullying” is about. His question was; do those people know that they can push a delete button? I would not even know I am supposed to be bullied, I do not open emails from people I do not like in the first place.
I would add to it: If a kid is cyberbullied, it is a clear sign of failed parenthood. Yes, I did say it. Stuff it if you do not like it. Kid is not, and most likely never will be able, to live his/her own life. What a tragedy, what a “cruel” reality of life itself.
