|Was watching the news this morning and saw a segment on this whole fast food and obesity blame game going on. |
The woman being interviewed said she is suing McDonalds because it is their fault why her daughter is acting like a brat when she is told 'no' to eating at McDonalds because she wants the toy.
Okay, really? It's McDonalds fault why her daughter throws a temper tantrum when she is told 'no'? Really?
Um, in my eyes it lays on the parent to raise their kids. If the parent says no, and the kid acts up, well, teach the kid that no is no. That no amount of whining and crying and stomping their feet is going to change the fact that they are not getting their way.
Is it really the fast food places that have caused obesity? I think not. No one forces these people to eat there. It is a choice! Whatever happened to taking responsiblity for ones self and not blaming others. Geez.
I do believe I have ranted about this subject before, but after watching the whole blame game this morning riled me up again.
When I was working outside the home, putting in ten hour days and raising three kids by myself it was my responsibilty to cook dinner for them to teach them how to eat correctly. It was also my responsiblity to teach them manners. As well as if they did somthing that was not acceptable that there were consequences. On the other hand there was always a reward for a job well done. Fast food was and is a treat to this day.
Okay, I suppose this is enough ranting.
I was actually going to post about something else, but this whole fast food drama changed my mind. Don't be surprised if I post about what I was going to late on today.
Until next time...........................
