Nurturing Young Kids

March 22, 2012 at 2:16 am 2 comments

I was on my way to school and noticed a young man walking in front of a very young child, possibly a toddler. The “toddler” was hoping behind his dad and his dad was talking on the cell phone, oblivious to whether the child crossed the street safely or not. I was bothered by the entire scene, and I have seen this many times. The parent is in front of their child, and not paying attention to that child. What happened to walking down the street holding hands with your child? We were not allowed to cross the street without holding the hand of our older sibling or parent. What in the world are these people thinking about?

What are your thoughts?

    I hate when I see this too, cell phone or not. You don’t even have to hold hands, but at least be engaged with your young child. I notice this very often with dads and I always feel sad for the kid.

      Do you think this is a societal thing? Are we moving nurturing of our children out of the picture? I know it’s a learned behavior, but are parents too busy to watch out for their young children?
