Skip to comments.WH Counterterror Chief: Parents Need to Watch for ‘Sudden Personality Changes in Their Children'
Posted on 04/19/2014 3:02:08 AM PDT by opentalk
In a speech delivered at Harvard Universitys John F. Kennedy School of Government on Tuesday evening, White House Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser Lisa Monaco said it could help prevent terrorism if parents watched for sudden personality changes in their children at home.
President Obama has been laser-focused on making sure we use all the elements of our national power to protect Americans, including developing the first government-wide strategy to prevent violent extremism in the United States, said Monaco, in a transcription posted by the White House.

Amazing that this person who stated that “President Obama is LASER-FOCUSED on blah, blah, blah...” feels the dire need to warn us as parents about how our children can most certainly become terrorists.
She cites the litany of telltale signs: changes in attitude/mood, changing ideological mien, talking about taking a foreign trip....blah, blah, blah....
Given this administration’s prostration before ISLAM and all its peaceful good, I’m betting she certainly isn’t talking about that, for goodness sake.
So..who or what about is she talking? Could that be conservative right-wing views perhaps? People who are Christians? Or, practically, could it be about a kid strung out on drugs? Who knows?
All I know is that I am suspicious of anything leadership in this government does - or says. All of it. Not one damn word do I believe, especially anyone from the Justice Department.
I’m gonna guess Ms. Monaco hasn’t had any teenage children.

Personality changes, like when their hormones kick in.
Paging Mr. Orwell, Mr. George Orwell...
Our government is growing to the point of being outright terrifying.
these folks in obammy’s gubmint must be on drugs.
Your chillen are possible terrorist threats
but all these illegals sneaking in to the country are ok?
Yep, American children are the threat... not bomb-wearing, AK-47 shooting, “Death to America” screaming Islamists.
Only someone who has ill-intent planned for the American people would consider the American people (or their children) a threat.
A renowned psychologist should analyze what these folks are really saying/projecting and let the American public know what they really mean.
I think the public would rightfully be very concerned — if they only knew.
violent extremism, we know who we are
I’m waiting for a “sudden personality change” in POTUS when he loves America and its traditions, and tells the truth.
So report all your daughters when they become teenagers and report them often.
They really should form a jnit entitled Obama Youth, wearing special costumes and armbands, being indoctrinated in right thinking, and informing on one another, and their parents.
That would make everything better.
Years ago one of my kids went through a sudden personality change. It was called “puberty.”
If they spend their high school years in something called The Choom Gang, apparently there is cause for concern.
I suspect she means if they start acting Conservative. But that’s just a guess.
A bad sign would be your daughter coming home from college wearing a habib.
This is pretty typical stuff for a lot of teens going through puberty.
They may have better weapons but they still don’t have enough of them.
Citizens need to look out for politicians wanting to “fundamentally transform” the best nation ever assembled on God’s green earth!
Back in 2009, I noticed a sudden, anti-social personality change in the White House occupant. We have been terrorized ever since. . . .
Watch for a recent conversion to Mohammedanism. That would cover about 80% of recent acts of terrorism.
I’m more worried about the attitude changes in the GOP.
Has this person ever had children?
I have been warning parents about a predictable change in their children for decades.
My warning went/goes like this: “On the 12th year, 364th day of your child’s life. They will go to sleep as a loved child, who loved its parents.
During the night the devil replaced that wonderful child with a teenager demon, whose main purpose in life was to make life miserable for the parents and siblings for the next 7 years.
Then, I told them, parents are not doing their job with that teen, unless they hear several times a day that they are the worst parents in the world, and no parents of their friends are as dumb and as mean as they are.
Keeping loving them and saying no. When they turn 20 something, the devil will start leaving the child alone.
Then, you are glad that you didn’t kill them or throw them out of your house. Your bad teen is gone, and a good adult has replaced that horrible teen creature.
We can’t believe how many parents years later after surviving their teenagers have thanked us for that simple warning and advise.
If the teen belongs to a lot of social net groups, NSA is probably watching them very closely.
LOL, so true.
I have seriously considered boarding a plane to Bolivia and not coming back until my daughter is 35, just to be on the safe side.
This is quite the reversal.
Up until now it’s been the children’s duty to watch and report on their parents.
“I have seriously considered boarding a plane to Bolivia and not coming back until my daughter is 35, just to be on the safe side.”
As per the book, “Roots” apparently some African tribes sent their new teenagers away to a different village to finish growing up.
After two teenage boys, we decided that might have been a good custom.
