A Lame and Adult-ish Post

Last night, I watched an episode of a television show, "Dont Trust the B____ in Apartment 23", on my laptop... I've downloaded a few episodes of it and just last night I got the mood to watch at least one... 

Well, I found that particular episode quite amusing, but I'm not planning on reviewing it here... I just want to express my concern about how most foreign television shows encourage casual sex so much... Yeahh, yeahh, I know... It's so lame and adult-ish of me to be thinking about something like this... but, as a future father, I have to admit that I'm genuinely worried... 

Gosh... 

After the episode ended, I lay my head on a pillow and stared at the ceiling thinking about other television shows I love like Dexter, Happy Endings, How I Met Your Mother, Revenge, The Big Bang Theory Show, Will and Grace and etc... Heck, all of them sort of convince people that casual sex is a cool thing to do... 

Modern Family is the only show that's kinda safe to watch... though there is an episode where Phil had to convince himself that teenagers losing virginities is a common thing and had to painfully accept that fact... 

AARRGHHH!! Sex before marriage is not okey!!

I thought about how did my parents raised me to be who I am today - a nice, well mannered, loving, responsible, obedient guy... Well, I know I'm not perfect, but I don't do drugs, I don't smoke, I don't party around, I respect my parents, I shower my wife with love and affection, I don't spend on worthless things... 

Among my four siblings, I was the only who received proper beatings from my parents... The eldest was raised and pampered by my grandmother... My younger brothers were (are still) spoilt by my parents... I was the only one who got whooped with rods and got locked outside for reasons I can't seem to remember now... 

Sometimes I do wonder why my parents was quite bias... There's a small room in heart that is occupied with anger and jealousy... but I keep that room locked... I'm the bigger person... at least that's what I keep telling myself...

Anyway, yeah, my parents did beat me but I'm not sure it made me who I am today... 

One thing I'm sure of is that I was unexposed... When I was a kid, there was no Internet and we couldn't afford Astro... We only had TV1, TV2 and TV3 to watch but I guess it was enough for me... Power Rangers, Jetman, Sesame Street, He-Man, Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, Mighty Mouse were among the shows I loved to watch and they sure don't promote bad stuff... 

Plus, my personality hindered me from making friends with ill mannered kids... I was pretty much an introvert and the ones who were nice enough to be friends with an introvert were of course nice people... 

In this modern era, I doubt that I can constrain my kid from exposing him/herself to the wild world outside... and I certainly can't forge him/her to be me... Haih... 

I came to a conclusion that the best way to educate my kid is by always being there by his/her side... Immediately explaining what's wrong and what's not to follow from the television shows even though the characters are making the thing looks cool to do... Having the conversation about the birds and the bees... Correcting every mistakes he/she makes... 

I guess that defines a good father - someone who will always be there... not just to protect but also to lead and advice... to teach... to support... 

Damn... I haven't even met my kid but I already know that I love him/her and I want to do my best to be a good father... A great father... 

I'll do my best, kid...
