In this media driven world it seems entertaining to portray Dad as an incompetent, bumbling idiot. Ignored by wife and offspring when he makes a decision, if the plot allows for that to even happen. When did it become "normal" to disrespect the God assigned leader of the family? Is this a result of promoting a secular education and the disavowing of religion in society? I don't know if you've noticed or not but children who have difficulty obeying both parents also seem to have even more difficulty obeying God. We could be reaping the benefits of allowing media the power of educating our youth.
For example, if a young woman has been reared in a warm loving relationship with both her mother and her father, is it more or less likely that she'll carry into her relationships or marriage a respect for her partner? I'm guessing the finished product would be a well adjusted wife that has no feelings of alienation, and is capable of giving as well as receiving love with a committed partner.
If a young man sees his father as a strong, loving, provider for his family, and his Mother as respectful of his father's decisions and leadership is he more or less likely to assume a role as the same model he grew up with, or emulate irresponsibility? I'm thinking the former rather than the later, yet daily those children are indoctrinated in a system of education, (media), that defies those examples as outside normal behavior. What possible good results can we expect when dysfunction is hyped up as acceptable?
It's way past time for adults to review what's been teaching our children. It's also time to review what input you've been receiving. As the old saying goes, "garbage in, garbage out." Take a serious look at our influences before that input is allowed to achieve the results we really are not looking for. Can we expect a beautiful garden of roses when we permit weeds to take control of the flower bed?
