    $500 Million Obama Administration Program Will Help Kids 'Sit Still' in Kindergarten
    Wednesday, May 25, 2011
    By James Zilenziger
    (CNSNews.com) – Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told CNSNews.com on Wednesday that the administration's new $500 million early learning initiative is designed to deal with children from birth onward to prevent such problems as 5-year olds who "can't sit still" in a kindergarten classroom.

    “You really need to look at the range of issues, because if a 5-year-old can’t sit still, it is unlikely that they can do well in a kindergarten class, and it has to be the whole range of issues that go into healthy child development,” Sebelius said during a telephone news conference on Wednesday to announce the Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge.

    My father taught me how to sit still with his belt. It worked and it was free! I plan to do the same.

    Discipline is only a pill away. Lets make little zombies out of them so they will grow up to be just like the Obamas.

    I may be one in a million, but my son has NEVER had a problem with paying attention, showing respect, or minding his own business.

    This is simply another attempt at the government 'telling' us what's best for our children. The problem lies in the fact that we can't parent in a logical manner anymore. We're confined by rules made up to make us slaves. Rules to indoctrinate the next generation.

    It cracks me up every time this type of arguement comes up. One side claims discipline is child abuse. The other says, mind yer own business. Both sides can claim some responsibility. The government is required to step in when child abuse is in question. That's a good thing. But they've yet to figure out just what constitutes abuse.

    Spare the rod and spoil the child? My kid never needed the rod.

    One thing I'll never forget, is my dad coming home after a tough day at work. My younger brother had homework doing with telling what time it was. You know, clock with hour/minute hands on it printed on paper. Dad picked up lil bro and put him on his lap. When he couldn't answer correctly, dad got mad. He took out the belt. It didn't matter the whippin, my brother simply didn't understand. This went on for about half an hour. I finally left the room.

    In some cases the rod is required. In many cases it's over used.

    My tax dollars at work?

    Quit sheltering the illegals. Don't tell me what my children can/cannot eat. Get out of our lives.:mad:

    You've been elected by the people. You swore an oath to protect and uphold the Constitution..

    What the HELL are you thinking!?:mad::mad::mad:
