You ever wonder how people raise their kids when they are not a conventional family? I know I do. Yesterday I met a man who's wife is a stripper,(he told me so,) and his 16 yr.old daughter (who was beautiful,) didn't blink an eye. I mean nothing against strippers,.....I have ALOT of friends who are and/or were strippers at one time or another, but not when they have an impressionable, beautiful 16yr.old at home, and dad is telling people like he's proud! Am I being over-sensitive? I mean, what kind of message does that send to a teenager? They already have so much to deal with and contend with,....too much now-a-days I would say. (But what do I know.) It just scares me a little when dad is crowing about it to everyone and anyone. Who knows,....and he wasn't a nice-looking, together man either,....he looked like a homeless man,-poor thing,-he doesn't work, and I just don't get it. I don't know,...he's not young either. (Neither is his wife.) It just scares me for this young,impressionable girl. What kinda person will she grow-up to be? What kinda values? It really does scare me to no end. I have been thinking and thinking about it. I mean,-my mom worked full-time, went to night-school, took tennis lessons, and still cooked dinner every night for five kids,.....that's how I grew-up. I guess I could call myself EXTREMELY LUCKY,-right? I didn't even know what strippers were when I was 16. I didn't. Honest to God. I mean, I'm not as innocent as that sounds, but I'm not worldly either. I just know that I don't think that that situation is a healthy one for the teenager,........and it actually worries me. Should it?
