Nowadays, many Americans are left scratching their heads and wondering where this country went wrong, says author Derek J. McNally, a native of England. He shares his thoughts while offering advice for parents on how to raise future generations in the short yet informative “Short Cuts, Greed and Corruption: Your Children, Our Country’s Salvation.”
McNally simply points to corruption and greed as America’s downfalls. He feels that society currently accepts corruption as a part of life. As he sees it, no one is standing up to say that what is going on is wrong, and since we are all affected by it, it’s hard to understand why no one is doing anything to stop it.
“Short Cuts, Greed and Corruption” offers parents and soon-to-be parents a set of ideas as to how they can create a better generation. McNally touches on the importance of integrity, accountability and commonsense, characteristics he believes that many Americans currently lack. By avoiding short cuts and greed in their adult life, the author hopes this future generation can create a better future America. (Excerpted from http://www.newparent.com/)
I truly believe that the next generation lies in your hands. If you want your children to be productive members of society, let them see how you are. If you want your children to be honest and reputable people, show them that you are. If you want your children to respect others, let them see how you respect others.
Bottom line, practice what you preach and remember that children live by the ideals we practice.
