Godsmack Frontman: 'Kids Are Too Protected Nowadays'
Godsmack frontman Sully Erna says kids are "too protected" these days. Speaking to the Weed Street Journal, Erna said this: "I was raised in a tough neighborhood, where there was a lot of drugs, gangs and crime. It made me who I am today. I think that parents should let their children lose at board games and such. Otherwise, they grow up being spoiled and unaware of the real world." But leaving kids to lose at games and such isn't enough - he believes there needs to be some parenting too: "I think parents should sit their kids down and talk to them when they lose at baseball or whatever. Otherwise, when they grow up, they can't accept it when they go to a job interview but don't get the job." Obviously his comments should be taken with a fistful of salt, but what do you think? Are kids wrapped in too much cotton to experience life, or do most parents get it right? Meanwhile, Erna plants to record another solo album after the one he's just completed. "I want to do it all. I want to play music, write, act, do a soundtrack," he said. "I just finished this album and we are just starting the tour for it. It's in the future. I want the brand Sully Erna to continue to grow."
