Junk food or Internet or TV cl

December 8, 2016

I thought I'd put the subjects together ,why well from next July they are going to ban ( as if) junk food on the social media ,whatever that means . They say that kids are on the Internet for 15 hours a week ,that means they getting obese looking at the adverts ,NO it's the 15 hours sitting on their ARSE doing nowt . They put problems into boxes ,yes that's to blame or at fault . Kids are getting fat because food is so available and junk,sweets,fizzy drinks etc are the first things you have to go past when visiting your local supermarket ,and are always a BARGAIN and as for " pound shops " there are 4 within a 100 meters where my daughter lives . Pulling up a sandbag thinking of my youth and my children's upbringing the most important happening was outside play ,games etc or swimming or scouts or guides or bikes ,the list was endless . Tv came in late in late in my upbringing but for my kids it was German tv then UK and only an hour at most ,patting myself on the back I must admit I was a hands on Dad playing games ,teaching them to ride bikes or take them fishing . So you see were I'm coming from ,it's so easy now to give the kid a iPad,tablet,DS whatever or an mobile phone with all the games ,apps to keep them static not burning off all those sweeties or calories from burgers chips pizzas etc . Parents have to take responsibility for the state of their offsprings and stop putting the blame onto someone else ,like the woman in the third world ,if you can't feed it don't feckin have it , yes it's your right to have a child BUT it's a child and you have to train it to become a responsible adult ,it's hard at times and you have give the child your best shot , who said being a parent was easy ?????
