SOMETIMES A PARENT MUST SAY NO-UPDATE 1 SUNDERLAND'S FATHER INKS REALITY SHOW DEAL
I was a fairly permissive parent but I had my limits and I would never cross those limits not in a New York second!!! There are parents who make me wonder if they have any limits? They allow their children to put their lives in danger and that is way too far to go!!!!!!!!!!!
SOLO SAILING AROUND THE WORLD
A 16-year-old California girl, Abby Sunderland was lost at sea all alone trying to circumnavigate the world. I heard her parents say they allowed this both because her brother had done this at the same age and to help her to develop character.
I was hesitant to show my feelings on this subject but would they have allowed her to play Russian roulette just because her brother had survived such foolishness? Then this morning I heard Geraldo Rivera express these same feelings on Fox and Friends. Geraldo is an experienced sailor and he likened this to child neglect and I agree with him!!!!!!!!!
Folks there are some things a sixteen year old should not be allowed to try alone even with a friend or a small crew. There may be glory if successful but the possible negative outcome is devastating to this young life, which could be over before it’s even started!!!!!!!!!
WAY OVER THE TOP FOR ME
Allowing any 16-year-old child to circumnavigate the world alone is way over the top in my view and if I had my way the neglectful parents who are living vicariously through their child should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don’t like to be judgmental but this is way to far to allow a child to go!!!!!!!!!!!
