If I die, who will teach my daughters?

CNN has become the station to watch when my other channels bore me. It's my insomniac channel, as I watch Nancy Grace, Joy Behar and Showbiz Tonight. Last weekend, I enjoyed this Father's Day Special documentary by Dr.Sanjay Gupta, If I die, who will teach my daughters?

"Editor's note: Imagine being a father and finding out you were going to die. Who would be there for your kids? Hear from one man who thought only of his daughters when he was faced with the news." - CNN.com

This touched my heart. 'Cause I was in the midst of writing about my recent Vermont trip. I can't stress enough, the need to go back to basics. I am reminded of the African proverb, "It takes a whole village to raise a child."

... And as I am writing and sharing this with you. I am reminded of this insane video, I saw this morning. At first I was like a mom dancing with her kids, I do that. But when more props kept popping up, I was like OH HELL NO.

One man's response after watching this was that parenting is non-existent today. .. And I had to respond. Just letting him know as a 33 year old mother, in my household, IT VERY MUCH STILL EXISTS.

The sad part we have people like this father and a young mom like me trying to raise decent and well rounded daughters.  While this mother is raising her sons to be lil' hoodlums.

  1. Okay, I am absolutely mortified by this You Tube clip. What is really going on?! And then people wonder what is wrong with this next generation of children when all they have to do is look at something like that!!!! SMH
