Our Greatest AssetWritten by Gloria Kaiser
Continued from page 1
These are only a few of frighting incidences of what is happening to our children. These tragic events are affecting all of our children in some aspect of their lives. What have experts found to be cause of such disturbing events? 1. Many parents are enslaved by a materialistic society. As a result a large amounts of time is spent working and less time to do necessary things to bond with their children
2. Many parents have been physically and verbally abused by their parents, as a form of discipline. Such discipline has had a negative effect on how parents view discipline. So parents are more lenient and are reluctant to discipline. 3. The media has produced so many violent films, television shows and games. According to "Science" magazine" six major professional societies in United States," linked agressive behavior in some children" 4. Computers use is often not supervised by parents, allowing teens and children to be exposed to violence, pornography and child predators.
Upholding family values and principles, communicating, and setting reasonable boundaries are some of things we can do to save our most valuable asset.

If I had a daughter like me, I would have done things to her (and/or myself) that I will live to regret!Thankfully, I donít. I donít have a daughter, period!! (Someone up there loves me, after all)
I spoke very briefly on phone with my aging and lonely grandmother today Ė and this blog is a result of that conversation.
To say I have regretted my actions and decisions when I was younger is an understatement. We all donít know how long she has to live on this planet anymore Ė but one thing is for sure, it wonít be for long. Oh, sheís not really ill or anything. Sheís happy (in a very lonely kind of way) and healthy (in an old kind of way) but she certainly has her own regrets as well. I guess a lot of things that I did in past were uncalled for and when she did things out of goodness of her heart, I wasnít appreciative because I was too self-centered and obnoxious. I ruled world, didnít I?
I donít know how long more tenure of her stay here on earth has before it expires, but I hope she will take good memories with her down or up to wherever sheís going after expiration of her stay here.
Thank you, ah mah.
