There are many example of bad parenting
The evidence is in the children
If they disrespect you or others, their parents are bad too
If they terrorize other children on their pocket bikes
Their bad parents handed over, as they are no more than a wallet
To their kids, and have zero parenting skills whatsoever
If the kids play on anybody’s lawn that isn’t their own
Without permission, it’s the bad parents to blame
There are many people you would expect to be a bad parent
Based on their projected persona
And very often you would be making a correct assessment.
I firmly believe that good parents respect their children
And other people’s children
They don’t speed in residential neighbourhoods
Or ignore school zones, or school buses.
They don’t pay off their children with motorized weapons.
I am glad to say that I am not a bad parent
I wish many of my neighbours were
Yet they continue to prove otherwise
By speeding, buying pocket bikes, and
Having their children play wherever they please
Without any permission
A child may get hurt or die by acting in that manner
Some parents have no heart at all.
