In my opinion, the ever-evolving behavior of selfishness and greed at various levels and in degrees of intensity throughout humanity is not setting the best example for our children. Being entertained seems more valuable than an honest day of meaningful work and/or study. A fact of life: “Parents can tell but never teach, unless they practice what they preach.”
The garage without a roof is a symptom of a far deeper problem that we are in denial about. At some point in the evolution of our country, liberty became license and respect became a joke. All our children need to do is emulate our Congress for there to be chaos in our streets.
