Donald Trump, Jr. sent liberals into a tizzy this week over a picture of his son.
Little Donnie was out hunting with his father, holding a double-barrel shotgun, which apparently was just a little too much for most liberals to handle.
Take a look:
Missing the Point
Liberals took the picture as an insult to their assault on the Second Amendment.
As usual, though, they missed the point.
What was actually being celebrated was the fact that little Donnie was outside and active rather than plopped down in front of a gaming system.
Don Jr. even captioned the post with, “Get them outdoors early and often… you won’t regret it!”
Child Obesity Out of Control
Don Jr.’s point should be taken to heart by parents.
Today, most neighborhood streets are quiet, whereas 20 years ago, they would have been filled with the sounds of kids playing all day and into the early hours of the night.
In far too many cases, children spend their playing hours on the computer or on a gaming system.
That very behavior is what many believe leads to the interaction problems many children have.
In addition to the lack of social skills, there is also the problem of childhood obesity that is running rampant in this country.
Tthe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that childhood obesity has “more than tripled” since the 1970s.
The most recent survey conducted by the CDC showed that 20 percent of young people from the ages of six to 19 are obese.
It is a heartbreaking statistic that will continue to climb until parents force their children to get out of the house and play — like children are supposed to do.
The liberals upset about this picture got it all wrong.
We need more parents like Donald Trump, Jr. that encourage their children to enjoy the great outdoors.
