Where do I start? 

 

Kids these days and there propensity to carry knives and act like little mobsters smoking a joint of weed and threatening people twice the size. Fucking joke!

I'm glad my partners kids just sit indoors on the playstation playing that game called twice weekly (fortnite) however some part of me says they need to get out more.

The youngest at nearly 15 has no idea what to do when he leaves school...so much potential but so little application in realising said potential.

 

Thoughts?

If A-Levels & Uni is out of the question mate then he could do a lot worse than join the Royal Navy. Doesn't just open their eyes to the wilder world and toughen them up but the learning opportunities are unreal. Engineering especially.

My cousin was in the Navy. He went to the London offices for Army recruitment (apparently it's quite a famous street but can't remember what it was called) as he really wanted to join the Army. The told him they weren't recruiting at the moment, but said the Navy recruitment office was just a few doors away. Disappointed he went there and signed up.

 

I actually wonder if maybe the Army told him they weren't recruiting as he was a very tubby guy. Once in the Navy, he spent a year in their training programme and he turned his fat into muscle and he was a genuinely massive guy. Very powerful and intimidating. As he was enrolling to be on the IT/Engineering side, he did actually slide back into his old habits and did put on weight again.

 

He retired after the minimum service required to obtain the pension. I think that was his utlimate goal, lazy bones.

That's nowhere near abnormal.

I'm not one for thinking that current government dictates child behaviour, I personally think its parents passing down their morals or lack of.

Then ask where they get them?

 

A countries psychology is determined by the acts of government, both physical and moral, a countries opportunities are dictated by the actions of a government and their motivation and concerns, a countries view of the world is shaped by government mandate through curriculum, a countries identity and philosophy is uniquely shaped by the actions of government, all of which help form the child and later adult.

 

A childs enviroment is the choice of the governement as they control the purse strings and investment, a parent can only look to change this if that option is available to them, which for the vast majority it is not.

 

A parents job is to make sure the child doesn't fall foul of the laws of government and that horrible thought is what keeps parents awake at night.

Amen brother.

 

I just want to be a player, I don't want to fuck around with all this other shit.

 

With regards kids, I worry that they're the first generation since quite literally the dawn of civilisation that don't play with other kids (at least in a non virtual world).

Surely not everyone follows government psychology? There are free thinkers I've heard.

Nail on head. Rather than go out and climb a tree, they would rather build some kind of box in a video game and communicate via headsets.

The problem we/I see, is that children have no imagination, all their fun is laid on for them. 

In days of yore, the major theme was that your baths kit was dry and you had enough money to get in the baths. Various games of hide-oh, war, hide and seek, would be on the go all the time. 3 and in, shooty, 60 seconds - are all long gone. The internet and video consoles, have killed(in the main) a child's imagination and ability to interact and play. 

And as for obesity of children today, is it no wonder kids are suffering health wise with so little exercise.

You missed the point, the governments actions dictate the overall psychology.

 

Look at the current mess, lies, theft, dishonesty, these things filter through, that's the psychology which is fed down and the public will look to this and test the parameters of what is permissable as they see those 'above them' getting away with. 

 

The government control the dominant ideology, hence they control the psychology, both pervasive and evasive.

 

Blaming parents is like blaming me for my goldfish dying when i was six becuase my parents didn't buy fish food. 

 

They take some of the blame, of course, but so much is out of thier control that it feels like the massive cop out it is to say 'blame the parents'.

 

No, blame years of underinvestment, schools being underfunded and curriculum limited to nationalistic tones, lack of focus on creating new jobs, overseas investment blocking aspiration to buy a home, decimation of the manufacturing industries, cuts to local services, debt being seen as a solution and not a problem.

 

Give them opportunity and aspiration/hope and the situation you talk about will abate and that only comes through government intervention, in the main.

 

The government decide how lives are shaped and how, if at all, they can be a purposeful one.

Ok, who was PM when you were 6?

Kids have no interest in politics. If itry and get them to do something other than gaming they have no interest. Not really a government's fault that technology has brainwashed the yoof. Unless of course we choose to be like North Korea, which in some ways has it's good points.

My boss took on an 18 year old apprentice a few years ago and he'd never made a phonecall before! and I don't just mean in a workplace environment, he'd literally never called anyone!

    • Just think of all those Colombian fans they are going to lose. 
    • From the BBC rumours page   https://www.sport.es/es/noticias/real-madrid/bomba-real-madrid-james-rodriguez-11839645   Florentino Pérez has the signing of Kylian Mbappé between his eyebrows , but the bomb of this summer market at Real Madrid may be James Rodriguez . The Colombian midfielder could return to the Whites after three seasons in which he had to leave on loan to Bayern and ended up being transferred to Everton when he did not have opportunities. A surprising operation, but one that has signs of crystallizing according to what is pointed out in their country.   The 'Gol Caracol' journalist Javier Hernández Bonnet has assured that the option has been opened at the request of the coach, Carlo Ancelotti , and that it has many possibilities of crystallizing despite the reluctance of the president, Florentino Pérez. This source assures that James Rodríguez would be willing to assume a salary reduction and that his arrival would not imply any disbursement for the coffers of the white entity , especially if the arrival of Rafa Benítez is confirmed, with whom he already collided with Real Madrid. Reunion with Carletto   Ancelotti's request cannot surprise anyone. The veteran Italian coach already requested the signing of the Colombian midfielder in his previous spell at Real Madrid , took him on loan to Bayern and later claimed him for Everton. It would be their fourth reunion. The Madrid coach is aware of the deficit of midfielders in the Whites' squad and knows that James Rodríguez can offer him a satisfactory performance to give Luka Modric and Toni Kroos air and raise the level of the team with rotations.   HAHAHAHA, this is as much a laugh at Real Madrid as it is at the Bloos. So much to laugh at here, but if the best that Real Madrid can do for a 'galactico' in their current circumstances is the return of Rodriguez, then they truly are fucked.   Then you have to wonder, what the fuck is the deal with him and Ancelotti? Is 'The Eyebrow' shagging the ladyboy on the side? He's brought his son with him on the coaching team, everywhere he's gone, and he's also signed Rodriguez at Bayern and Everton, and now apparently looking to bring him back to Madrid again. It's not like he's performed so spectacularly that he feels he can't afford to be without him.   Not to forget the opening line in the above, which is a translation, but it's hilarious in the wording, especially the context of Ancelotti and his facial features. 'Florentino Perez has the signing of Kylian Mbappe between his eyebrows'   Watch the Bloos twist the narrative into 'Real Madrid wanted OUR manager and now they want our player, not any of the Redshite players'
    • They won't exactly miss the malingering cunt but it would certainly dent their collective ego.
    • I don’t for one second believe that Real would want that contract back on their books. He’s the archetypical luxury player.
    • Why do I think this is likely to be true. Because it’s the Ev desperate to be a big club.
