Do you want drama...?

I have this theory...

I think a lot of people in this world like drama... they like to make a situation in their lives seem like a way bigger deal than they proportionately are compared to the other things going on in the world.

We refer to them in our house as "drama queens." Male or Female.

It's one of the most counter-productive personality traits that exist... in my opinion.

I have pounded it into my kids brains, not to act like that... not to have screwed up priorities that make you wanna make your situation seem so important or interesting that things that are actually important get ignored or people that are interesting get over-shadowed by your need for the attention.

Don't get me wrong... attention, even the spotlight is a good feeling... but I hope my kids continue to grow and realize that the way to achieve accolades is to earn them, the way to take care of that attention fix is to be a leader, a person that earns respect.

It all boils down to a priority issue, a discipline issue... very hard stuff to parent... but we as a country, are lacking it a bit in 2011.
