Being “Raised Right”

What does it mean to be “raised right?” Does it mean you’re a good boy or girl? What exactly does “good” mean anyway? That you go to church on Sundays, that you don’t swear or drink, that you don’t smoke or party? What kind of values does a person who was “raised right” have?

There are people out there who try to force their idea of what “values” are, well, valuable. But in reality, the idea of values and being raised right is incredibly subjective. It could mean two radically different things to two different people. In a way, neither is right and neither is wrong.

Passing judgement on another because you think they weren’t raised right is actually probably a sign that you were the one raised to have poor values.
