TOMI LAHREN'S FINAL THOUGHTS COMMENTARIES ARE EXCLUSIVELY ON FOX NEWS INSIDER.
It’s time for Final Thoughts – on our younger generation.
We take a lot of grief for being lazy and entitled - and that may be true. But we’re also inventive. We’ve come up with new ways of doing things - the sharing economy, dating apps, social media platforms. And some not-so-great things like, well … Eating laundry detergent.
If you haven’t heard of the Tide Pod Challenge, it’s pretty simple: Teens video themselves eating laundry detergent, then post it online.
Yeah. Welcome to 2018.
Doctors, psychologists and poison control experts are warning kids and parents of the dangers of … yes, apparently it needs to be said … eating laundry detergent. Article after article explaining what happens when a person ingests … laundry detergent.

Am I the only one who finds this just downright pathetic? Not only is it insanely dumb, it’s downright pathetic.
This isn’t a social media problem, a Tide problem, or even a medical problem. It’s a parenting problem - like many things wrong with modern society.
I know what you’re thinking: The Tide Pod Challenge couldn’t possibly be political, could it? Actually, yes, it is.
It’s just the latest symptom of a larger problem - the breakdown of the American family. It’s what happens when kids aren’t taught boundaries, respect, consequences or logic. Parents nowadays are taught to live and let live - just go with the flow. Let your teens “express themselves.”
But this modern, loosey-goosey method of parenting doesn’t teach kids right from wrong. Or sane from insane. It produces wild animals that think they can do whatever the heck they want - and get away with it.
Parents used to wash their kid’s mouths out with soap. And now kids are voluntarily eating it. Is this really where we are? Pay attention, parents. And do better.
Social media addiction is another major issue. These teens surely know it’s not smart to eat detergent. But because their value and self-worth is determined by video views and Instagram likes, they do it anyway.
The Left, which dictates popular culture, brainwashes young people into believing they live in a world where 64 gender options are up for selection. Everything is free. Beyonce is a God Queen, and eating detergent is funny.
Americans - we are better than this. Put down the soap, kids, and get a job.
Those are my Final Thoughts. From LA, God Bless and take care.
