This isn't really a fitness post but can be related to all of us. As parents, we want to protect our children. We don't want to see them cry or be in any discomfort. But for all those out there that have a hard time with the way Millenials act and feel like they are entitled, well guess what.....we did that. We didn't want them to struggle, so we made it so they didn't. We didn't want them to feel bad if they lost, so we stop keeping score and gave everyone a trophy. We didn't want anyone to talk bad about them, so we sheltered them from the world. These kids never learned how to deal with the shit that happens to you as a person. They were never given the skill set. They grew up assuming everyone would take care of everything and they would be given whatever they wanted. We taught them this. I am in NO WAY saying that I want either of my children to be hurt, sad or anything negative. But I also want them to be able to stand up and fight against the world if it comes at them. They need to be taught to know that they will be ok, that words only hurt if you let them, that there will ALWAYS be shitheads out there but you can't give them the power. I was raised by parents that DISPISED bullies. But the only way you can protect yourself from bullies is to get some experience dealing with these scumbags. You have to develop a tough outer shell. Not so that you are closed off to the world but enough that if some bonehead wants to talk crap, that you can blow it off, rise above it, or stand toe to toe with them. It crushes me to see kids not being able to handle these bullies. But what saddens me, even more, is to see a child that figures they can't, or aren't able to, or supposed to, deal with them and protect themselves. Yes, it sucks that its out there, but teach them early about how to deal with it so they have the skills when kids really get nasty. I DESPISE bullies!
