How did Girl Scouts become so socialist, gay-supporting and abortion-supporting while Boy Scouts is still so conservative
Oh wait it’s probably because girls are better
Are you implying being Conservative is bad?
good reading comprehension.

if you give kids zero restrictions they’ll become the nicest fucking kids ever who never do drugs or get into trouble i know because my parents let me do nothing but eat chicken nuggets all day and read hentai until 4am and i am a straight A student
Seriously though this seems to be the case with a ton of people I know, if you don’t restrict them all the time they actually do better and are mentally healthier
WHY DON’T PARENTS UNDERSTAND THIS?!?
Ok but consider this: not all children are you???
Like every child is different and there isn’t any one right way to raise them, it’s a process that needs to grow and adapt and vary with the children and the parents
And yeah I can get behind not being overly restrictive but giving children zero restrictions is a BAD BAD BAD BAD idea in all but maybe a few cases
And for the record getting straight As isn’t an accurate reflection of how good a person you are or how well you were raised
|#ive seen kids with zero restrictions who turned into fucking ASSHOLES seeking attention #because the child brain actually interprets it as not caring #the real secret here is that when your kids are old enough that they should be making their own decisions #that's when to lighten up on the rules and give them freedom #AFTER they've had the influence of what's not allowed from the parents #but its seriously dependant on the kid #and the AGE of the kid||reblog|
still upset that the films never acknowledge that Peeta loses a limb in the first arena and goes through the Quarter Quell with a prosthetic leg
or that Katniss has suffered permanent hearing loss in one of her ears and now requires a hearing aid
or, you know, the Avoxes
because, you know, why show disabled people doing things
