Who runs your home, your
household? Who determines its ethos? Who controls its
organisation? Who decides its practices? Who manages its
finances? Who oversees its safety and wellbeing? Who
runs its day-to-day details?:
You and the members
of your household?
Or your really nice
neighbours - with whom you often socialise?
Or the folks who
live halfway along the road - at whom you smile and with whom
you pass the time of day when you see them in the street or on
the school-run, but that's about it?
Or the folks who
live right at the end of the street - whom everyone avoids when
they see them coming because they just cannot mind their own
business but want to interfere in everyone else's business too?
You do? Now why is
When one of your
children comes to you and tells you that your other child has
trampled over your rose bushes, ridden their bike through your
hydrangeas, and cut the flowers off your prize orchids, but the
accused child vehemently denies it, what is your response?:
Is it to take great
care to investigate the truth of the matter, and then discipline
whichever child did it in accordance with the very fair justice
system you have long-established in your home?
Or is to lock your
accused child in a dark and dingy cupboard under the stairs
whence he will languish for an
indeterminate and lengthy time whilst the tale-bearing child
just carries on with his life, and you carry on with your's?
You would do the former?
Now why is that?
Who controls your
finances? Who organises your household's budget? When
you receive your monthly salary or invoices paid from your clients:
determine what percentage of it is necessary to cover your
household's bills, groceries, mortgage or rent, holidays, chosen
charities, your children's pocket money, any debts, desired
savings, etc, and apportion accordingly?
Or do you give a
rather large chunk of it to your nice neighbour, or the
household you don't know hugely well halfway along the road, or
that incredibly profligate family in the next street, and allow
them to manage it for you?
You control the entirety
of your finances? Now why is that?
Do you have a front door
(and perhaps a back door too)? When you are at home, when you
go to bed each night, when you're out for the day, or away on
Do you shut your
front door and ensure that it is firmly locked to secure the
privacy and the safety of your household?
Or do you leave your
front door and all your windows wide open with a huge sign on
your gate inviting your nice neighbour, the folks along the road
whom you don't know hugely well, and the angry and violent young
man with the bull mastiff on the other side of town, to all come
in and take up residence with you and your family?
To signal your
virtue to your new 'tenants' do you turf your children out of
their bedrooms, deprive them of their food and clothing, and
take away their toys, and give all these things to the new
residents of your house, and expect your children to love their
Do you simply smile
benignly and defer without demur when some of your new residents
bar you entrance into 'their' rooms, refuse to acknowledge the
rules of your household, and, further, begin to try to impose
their own very questionable 'rules' onto you and your family -
in your own house?
Do you "see no evil,
hear no evil, and speak no evil" when your sons are murdered and
your daughters are raped by some of the members of your new
Indeed, do you even
go so far as to rush out into the streets to gather many more of
these poor guests into your home?
You secure your home,
and you favour and protect your children? Now why is that?
I have just one more
Why is it that what you
are not willing to apply - absolutely rightly - to your family you are willing to apply to
