When your child is crying in public and a stranger walks up and smacks them in the face sometimes they’ll say “It takes a village... “ before walking away. First of all, you can’t just do that. You have to finish your damn sentence. You can’t just say “It takes a village…” and leave. Say the whole phrase or forget it. They mean to say “It takes a village to raise a child” and that is one of the most outdated sayings still currently used by people. For one, there aren’t that many villages left unless you’re Amish or in Europe. On top of that, no one wants strangers helping to raise their kids. No one wants strangers anywhere near their kids much less disciplining them or teaching them the ways of the world. It doesn’t take a village to raise a child it takes a single pair of loving parents, sometimes just one. The key is you have to really care about doing a good job raising a child. A village doesn’t give a crap about your kid, that’s why they shouldn’t be raising it.
