What’s your daily regime of starting your day? Let me guess… With only one eye open, you scroll/troll your Facebook and Instagram accounts? Sometimes, Twitter makes the cut, right? What?! Don’t look at me with those little squinty eyes. I start my day by refreshing the browsers open on my Safari in my iPhone. *sips teas* TMZ, MediaTakeOut, and Bossip on my side chicks. Buzzfeed, Heavy, and Listverse are my mistresses. Lastly, CNN and HLN are my wives. *sips more tea* I’m a worldly chick. *inserts fake laugh*
So, one story that I do want to talk about this morning is the one from Memphis, Tennessee. *pulls down reading glasses* Parents and students claimed on Monday that a 14-year-old girl was committing sexual acts in the boys’ bathroom, sometimes for $5 and other times for free. Another kicker was that she also was doing this with multiple students per day.
Today, I wanted to sleep in until noon but with this troubling story? I told myself that I needed to get the fuck up out of the bed and blog the hell out of this one. I really don’t want to go in this morning. However, I need to do it before black Twitter get a hold to this one.
No tea, no shade.
First, I don’t know this child’s past or her current environment. I don’t know if she has parents or if she is living in poverty. Nevertheless, this story should touch parent’s hearts everywhere. Mentalwriting? Do you have children? No. I don’t have any children. Also, I’m not a stepparent to any children. I do have some morals and common sense that most new age parents lack.
I do have a question that is lingering in my mind like everyone with a fucking conscious should have.
WHERE ARE THE FUCKING PARENTS AT IN 2014?

Iyanla, girl, I got this.

Dear Ratchet Ass Parents,
Let’s clear the air… I’m not singling out one racial class either in this post. This is to the parents who claim to be best friends with their bad ass kids. This is to the parents who is “thot” walking with their children on Instagram and Twitter. This is to the parents who is clubbing with their underage delinquents in King of Diamonds. This is to the parents who don’t punish their kids when the kids yell back- like they pay fucking bills. The fuck?! This is to the parents who let their kids run rampant in Hollywood alone and then ten years later, you discover why little Billy got emotional problems. This is to the parents who spoiled their children with the latest accessories but the child can’t read a lick of anything.
I once heard that there will never be such a thing- “good parenting”. Let’s be real… there is a fucking thing called “raising your damn child like you got some fucking common sense”. Yes, raising children is an incredibly hard and risky task. Remember, you’re raising the next generation. Do you honestly think that raising a “thot” will be the world’s best doctor? I try not to judge but if a “thot” walked into my gynecologist appointment with the clipboard, do you think I want her to give me any medical advice. Lol. Okay, okay… Not funny. Parents, you don’t need to be your children’s friends when they are growing up. That’s why elementary school, middle school, and high school exist; besides for educational purposes, of course. Those are the times when your children will be discovering and developing their own social life and skills. You just need to be there to catch them with love and care.
*someone whispers in my ear to cut this special*
You get the point, right?
Parents, do the fuck better.
P.S.: Mentalwriting needs a show. VH1 and Bravo, I’m your girl. Fuck a reality show. Give a talk show to this girl here. WHAT? *twirls nonexistent hair* I’m just saying.
