The 21st century;
Changed the quality of our parenting

The busier we get;
the less time we have;
 to spend with our little ones.

We buy them off with gifts.
We cast a blind eye; 
Hoping their tantrums will soon stop.

We hope for a quiet moment to relax.
Giving in to their demands.
Hoping it will ease our guilt
Of not being better parents

As our children run amok;
With little values and lots of gifts.
Guilt compromises the quality of our parenting &
the quality of our children.
