    "The truth can be very ugly, rather discomforting and downright painful, but it remains the truth, whether you like it or admit it or not. The U.S. Census Bureau recently reported that the number of American children living in poverty is on the rise, with almost one-third of American children living in what the bureau defines as poverty. Let’s make one thing perfectly clear: This is not the fault of the kids.

    The fault is with the parents or, often, the lack thereof.

    Statistics from the last census tend to indicate an increase in poverty because the census made an effort for the first time to include illegal immigrants who tend to live in poverty. A conservative estimate of illegals in the US is 12 million and goes up to 20 million. When you dump 20 million helpless menial jobs or no jobs illegal immigrants on the census you get a spike in poverty.

    I always reminded my kids that they were born with the ability to know the difference between right and wrong, and that they were blessed because of that.

    I also reminded them that the real challenge as they grow up is deciding between right and wrong.

    Thank goodness something I ever said stuck in their pee pickin' lil' noggins.

    I also baptised each of my 4 kids in the kitchen sink. At the first starry night I took them outdoors, held them above my head and said "behold the only thing greater than yourself".

    Parents can hardly be blamed for the December 2007 recession and its lingering effects – high unemployment in particular. That’s your cause for the increase in poverty among children.
