I havn't posted in well over a year, my linguil skills are pretty rusty so i'll probably give the wrong idea but please try to add to the debate rather than flame me. www.mavav.com, after seeing this i went quite crazy. Maybe computer games arn't satan, perhaps, just perhaps the flashing images don't turn little angels into bloodthirsty murderers. Maybe the games didn't turn your child into a slob, maybe it was your poor motavational skills. And here's a long shot, maybe your child isn't failing at school because he shot an alien last night, maybe it's because your son is a FRIKKIN IDIOT. Maybe you are willing to blame anything and anybody exept yourself for your child's failings in life. "MacDonalds made my son/daughter fat" - no, if macdonalds was the cause then every human being within a 2 mile radius of it would be morbidly obease. The fact is, i live near a macdonalds, a pizza hut and a KFC, yet if anything i'm underweight. Well i guess the billionare MacDonalds has it in for your son/daughter and they just don't care about the joneses' perfectly healthy child next door. THERE ARE 2 POSSIBLE REASONS FOR YOUR CHILD OBESITY 1)It is genetic 2)It is because you never taught your child self restriction EITHER WAY IT IS YOUR FAULT instead of blaming McDonalds - blame god for making potatoes - blame potatoes for being so easy to prepare - blame the chips for not leaping out of your childs mouth or... - blame your poor parenting skills And to make things worse, your inability to take blame is spreading to your children "it wasn't me", "i didn't do it" blatent lies, i know as i am in secondary school (high school),nothing is ever your fault, "he made me", "he started it". i pity those children, it has been proven that your behaviour is almost completly based on how you were brought up, the wolf child documentery proved this. Every generation it gets worse. please feel free to express your views. and i would love to see someone manage to disagree.
