We've Got To Take Our Rightful Place

We've got to wake up and stop running scared.

We've got to remember we're the parents and it's okay to tell our kids no.

It's okay to not make them happy all the time.

We've got to live like we ought to and expect the same from them.

We are in desparate need of fathers in our country.

Men need to stop being passive and when they do stand up and lead we women have got to stop telling them they are doing it wrong and taking their srtength from them.

I know I've shared the story of the elephants with you befor but in light of current events I'm going to share it again.

In a game park young, you could call them teen age bull elephants started hurting the other elephants and each other and tearing up the park.

They rangers couldn't understand why these young bulls were so out of control, they had never seen anything like it before.

They tried to do things to stop them but nothing worked.

One day they realized there were no old bulls in the park.

They had all been poached.

They went and got mature bull elephants and released them into the park.

In a short time the young bulls stopped killing other elephants and  each other.

They had been acting out sexually earlier than what they should have been, earlier than they would have had their been mature bulls in the park.

Basically what they rangers found out was that when the mature bulls came back into the park and took their place they put the young bulls in their place.

The order was restored and the young bulls learned to be bulls.

I think we see this same thing happening in our society today.

I heard about a sixteen year old boy who was beginning to get a little out of control.

He was a big kid, and he knew it.

His father was gone on the truck a lot and this boy started to give his mother problems.

He talked to his mother in a disprespectful way and it kept getting worse.

One day when the father was home he walked in and saw what was going on, by this time the boy was really giving his mother a had time.

The father took a hold of his sons arm and put him up against the wall.

He wasn't abusing him, he was controling him.

This boy thought he could use his size and power to disrepect his mother.

The father showed him different.

He showed the boy the difference between the strength and emotion of a sixteen year old boy compared to the strength and wisdom of a forty year old man.

He told his son we wasn't going to talk to his mother like that.

Again, he wasn't abusing he was protecting his wife and teaching his son.

The sad part about this story is the mother stepped in and corrected the father.

She came to her sons defense.

She striped the power of the father and empowered the foolishness of her son.

Things went worse for the son and he eventually went to prison.

I say all that to say, men have got to step up and be men and and learn how to use their strength in the right way and we as women have got to let them.

Time is of the essence,  our families can't take much more our our instability.

We've got to take our rightful places and restrore our families.
