Can you tell I'm irked this morning! All this stuff about Miley acting out, then I read that Alan Jackson's middle daughter is arrested for underage drinking and assault. She tells the officer that her daddy will do whatever she wants him to. Really?
I love Alan Jackson, but maybe it's time to stop the madness. This isn't the first time one of his children was arrested and I'm sure he isn't the only country star who's child has been in trouble. I think what I'm seeing here is a society that tends to spoil and enable our kids. For some they have everything handed to them and are constantly bailed out of their troubles with hardly even a smack on the hand. Life isn't that way. We aren't teaching them to be responsible or that there are consequences for bad behavior if we are constantly being a shield for our kids. I remember asking my son to take out the trash. He ignored me one too many times. I then put the bags of trash on his bed and in his closet. When he came back from soccer practice, he asked why the trash was on his bed. I said, well I figured you didn't dump it because you liked it, so I thought you would enjoy living with it in your room. From that point on, he always dumped the trash. He also got into trouble with the law when he was being foolish in college. I told him I'll help you only once. If you get in trouble again, you're on your own. Well he didn't listen, but learned a hard lesson that jail is not a fun place, especially since mom did not bail him out. He spent the night there! It's called tough love. My son has matured into a wonderful young man and has learned from his mistakes. Even though it was hard for me to say NO to him, I'm glad I did, because he learned. Maybe it's time for Alan Jackson to teach his girls a lesson if he wants them to outlive him. But that's between him and God. I'll send up a good word for them. As for me, I'll take care of my own back yard! God Bless ya'll and I hope my rant helped you in some way. ~Rose
