Parents’ behavior affects children

Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— — In the news lately across our wonderful state of West Virginia there is unrest about law enforcement, etc. — judges, magistrates and county commissioners. When you see our local law enforcement speeding, running stop signs, doing the things we citizens would get a ticket for — and then read about their superiors in higher positions doing questionable deeds — we wonder where our state is heading.

I believe why our younger generation is on drugs, lazy, rebellious to parents, and doing the things that defy rules, regulations, and righteousness, is because they see their parents doing dishonest things. I also believe that is why, usually, after kids get out of high school after age 18 and don’t attend church anymore is because of the hypocrites they see in our churches.
