Ever since Deion Sanders retired from football, he has stayed in the spotlight as an analyst. He’s also quite active on social media, especially Twitter.
Sometimes he tweets about sports, but some of his more interesting tweets are about giving general advice, usually themed around talking about the #Truth. On Friday, Sanders called out modern day parenting, giving questionable advice in the process.
Parents stop treating your kids like they’re your friends or spouse and tell them the TRUTH! Be brutally honest with them. Example, I told my kids Jack & Jill didn’t go up the hill to get a pale of water. They went to have sex & get high. Now they both in JAIL! #CoachPrime

This was quite strange to see.
I am not sure how old the kids are Deion is talking about, but that version of Jack & Jill might not be appropriate for younger kids. If anything, parents usually tell their kids the ‘truth’ at a certain age.
There was an old lady who live in a shoe
She dropped out of highschool
She had so many children
She didnt know what to do
She worked minimum wage
Kids didnt know their daddy

It is also hilarious to see Sanders giving parenting advice, being a guy that has been through two divorces. I am not sure if I would take parenting advice from someone like that.
We like you preaching on Twitter, but maybe take it down a notch, Deion.
