I know you have heard about this ridiculous news about parents who drop their kids at Omaha safe-haven. This is supposed to be for those parent who can’t take care of their kids so they can drop their infants to participating firehouse, hospitals and churches guilt -free. How can you be guilt-free dropping your kids? Well, anyway it’s supposed to be for the people like that.
The government in Nebraska wasn’t clear about the age limit so apparently a lot of tired parents dropped their kids ages 0-as old as 17 years old. These parents are so tired raising their kids so they just give them away, others claimed that they can no longer tolerate their kids attitude. Well hello, whose fault is that? parents are supposed to disciplined their kids . Which is also my complaint about this country. Many parents are afraid to discipline their kids because teachers and other “loving” people teaches kids to report their parents if they hit them! Be specific!!! Come on, spanking is never an abused unless you beat the crap out of those kids then that’s abuse! Kids are brat they will run all over you if you don’t show them what’s appropriate or not. Spank them but not beat the hell out of them. Time outs are crap. IT NEVER WORKED! The kids will do bad deeds knowing that only time outs can be their punishment. Spank them, tell them. Kids are not stupid they know when to behave if you teach them , they also know who to run over, whose parent is a push-over and whose parents who tolerate their kids bad attitude.
Now go back to safe-haven, the legislatures have a vote for limiting to 30-day old age limit, however there are still legislatures who still consider up to 15 yrs.old. Well, what’s the purpose of their meeting? It’s still the same to me.. 15 & 17 What’s different? 2 yrs. more older wow! Still the parents are going to drop their 15 yrs. old to safe-haven like hotcakes. You will hear that many parents from different states drop their kids to Nebraska because of this stupid law.
Don’t get all hyped about this. I am up for accepting infants and toddlers. I know that there are under-age Mothers who cannot take care of their kids financially or cannot give their babies a good life. I understand those people, I understand those Mothers. I know how hard it is to raise a kid by yourself without a lot of money and help ,but I am talking about the parents of 15 yrs. 17 years old. come on … 1 more year their kids will be 18 and can live on their own why do they have to kick them out so fast that they can’t even wait until they reach 18?
Safe-haven is a good idea for those under-aged mothers, mothers who were pregnant by rape, single poor mothers who has no other choice but to give up their kids not because they want to get of them but those who just can’t support their babies. But don’t just give up your teen-age kids because you are tired of them. Yes life is not easy and it is expensive to live but there’s help available and giving away kids is never an option!
