Being a parent is really hard. Even for those of you who aren’t parents, you can surely sympathize with that. You probably had parents and you know how raising you couldn’t have been a picnic. There are so many uncertainties. So many times when you’re not sure what the best thing is for your kid. So many possible different decisions that could have a huge impact on their lives. But a few things are kind of no brainers. Like buckling your child safely in the car for instance.
Just a little while ago I saw a little girl about 2 standing up in the backseat of the car in front of me. Her parents knew she was standing up. There is no way they couldn’t have seen her. I wanted to yell at her parents….honk….even yell at her to turn around and buckle up. But of course I didn’t do any of those things. I just smiled back at her while my heart raced and asked that God please protect her little life. How could some parents have so little regard for the well being of their children? It just makes me so angry.
