Brainwash Your Children - Because They Are Children
Brainwash Your Children - Because They Are Children
05/15/2012

Dr. Laura:

Here is a portion of my mother's day card from my recently married adult daughter: "Thank you for always being there for me, even when I'm far away. I miss you a lot, and think about you everyday-and how thankful I am to have had you as my mom. It's crazy how many things I say or do and then realize it's because you've brainwashed me! Haha!"

I did intentionally brainwash my kids after hearing you talk about that many years ago. Every t.v. show or movie we watched, I would comment on what was appropriate (not much) and why it was or wasn't. It sometimes was uncomfortable to mention things I wanted to let slide. But I loved them too much to stay comfortable.

My son is now a police officer. My daughter is starting a life with her new husband. Neither are drug-addicts, immoral beings, or burdens to society. If I had let popular culture brainwash them without my counterpoints, I fear what kind of people they would be.

Please remind your listeners no t.v.s or computers should be in their kid's room. This is one main way our kids are being brainwashed into being dishonorable beings. We need to continually be a voice in teaching our children.

Being silent is usually the loudest voice of all, shouting, "It doesn't matter," or "You don't matter." Everything should matter to a parent, especially their children.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you,

Melissa
