Recently I described some teen girls gathered in a McDonalds. From what I could see, they were addicted to drama 24/7; as they described their life there appeared to be nothing in it but drama. As suggested in the post, there seems to no longer be any damper on such behavior; with amplifiers such as smartphones and Facebook adding to the fire.
When these girls become mothers, how will they raise their children? Will it be in the same drama laced environment? Will they tamp the drama down a bit? How does unrelenting drama affect the development of children? Let us speculate on these questions.
I am guessing that unrelenting drama is not good for children. Maybe girls like it some; but I have the suspicion that lots of drama is too much for young girls even. No doubt for boys, it is a total disaster. For introverted boys, it would be disaster squared. To mold a mind with a steady diet of drama is cruel indeed; child abuse even.
Perhaps the McDonald’s girls will mature and mellow with age. Or maybe not. I suppose that we should be happy that probably some of them will get better. But as for the others, the sins of the mother are passed onto the children. Often in generation after generation.
If only men were allowed to tell them, “Cut this shit out”…
