My day started out with me taking a walk with my youngest daughter, Boney Love.
While out, we ran across another family. This dad was not playing around. He was guarding his family and watching me like a, umm, Canadian goose!
I admire my man, or is that “my goose”, as he taught me my lesson for the day.
But first, I’m not talking about the obvious physical protecting going on here, I’m talking about the protection you can provide your offspring before they are ever even present.
This goose-encounter led to a discussion with my 7-year old that I want her to learn now. Choose a man who will protect you and your family, but also you as a woman will need to protect your children as well.
Sadly, many women never learn this lesson.
According to numberofabortions.com, there have been over 505, 277 abortions THIS YEAR! We are not even at the halfway point of 2013, and we’ve already surpassed the 1/2 million mark. Obviously, many ladies are not following the advice they say to men all the time which is, “If you didn’t want to be a parent, you should have thought about that before we laid down!”
Yes, the womb is supposed to be the safest haven for a baby but sadly this is often not the case, and there’s not much you can do about it at this point Sir.
Many guys decide to have children with a woman who:
– cares about herself more than her child/children
– see having a child as a long-term insurance plan (ask many athletes about that one)
– care more about her sexual pleasure than caring for her child/children. For example, “entertaining” when they think kids are asleep and/or letting strange men spend the night or even caring for their kids. (Read Mother, boyfriend face child abuse charges here as one of many examples)
Unfortunately fellas, we often do not think about who we will have children with, until she calls (I hope these things aren’t texted these days but I’m sure they are) and says, “I’m pregnant”, then all those warm and fuzzy feelings turn to thoughts of, “She’s having my kid? I don’t want her as mother of my children!”
While marriage tremendously reduces the likelihood a man running into the above, some men do still marry women who function biologically as a woman, but have certainly never learned how to be a mother.
So guys, learn from Brother Goose. I’m not trying to bash on women, but shady actions done to children goes on much more than we would like to admit (because after all, that’s not our family, it’s those “ghetto/trashy” folks across the street…) and the most dangerous place for your child is sometimes the mother’s belly or her home.
But just remember, when you laid down, you gave up your right to protect and gave the responsibility to her, so choose wisely!
