It's amzing to me that a 13 year old girl can have an abortion, without her parents knowledge, much less consent. That children today are threatening their parents with child abuse charges in order to have their way. Our world is spiraling in a downward and dead direction. It breaks the heart of our Lord and thusly at times, mine as well.------------Rock

 Spare the rod and spoil the child


Spare the rod and spoil the child

Wisdom, you dare not say

Someone would shout, child abuse

And take your kids away


No wonder kids have no manners

Their elders they don't respect

Discipline and authority

They mostly reject


Spare the rod and spoil the child

 Wisdom you dare not leave out

To raise your kids as they do now

 Is not what it's all about


As people we need manners

To be free we need respect

To keep our country healthy

Morals we cannot neglect


The Bible is still the answer

Always was and e'er will be

But it takes a lot of courage

To teach these things today


Cause the world has different answers

And you'll find they'll call you lame

They hate it if you don't follow their ways

Of their new age, and go along with their game


But your children they will thank you,

Somewhere down the road

"Cause ultimately wisdom will prosper

Will help them see what's true

To help them find eternal life;

And it all begins

With YOU !!.

'If you teach a child in the way he should go
He will not depart from it'
Tho he may wander off the pathfor a while,
he will return to it Always 'lil flower

Indeed true my friend for we are suppose to discipline our youth and not abuse which are two different things as you have pointed out so clearly.
