I seem to be back in business… got a late post in yesterday in case you missed it. Al Franken cut from PBS honoring David Letterman, but Letterman’s scandal?
Now on to the Girl Scouts on instilling a moral compass and values into our little girls. Will boys/men even want to be around girls and women by the time we get done with this trip we seem to be on. A chaperone at all times apparently. Turning our kids into unfeeling automatons.
The Girl Scouts issued a warning to parents on their website Monday asking them to think twice before forcing their daughters to hug or kiss relatives at holiday gatherings.
“Have you ever insisted, ‘Uncle just got here—go give him a big hug!’ or ‘Auntie gave you that nice toy, go give her a kiss,’ when you were worried your child might not offer affection on her own? If yes, you might want to reconsider the urge to do that in the future,” the organization posted in an article titled “Reminder: She Doesn’t Owe Anyone a Hug. Not Even at the Holidays.”
“Think of it this way, telling your child that she owes someone a hug either just because she hasn’t seen this person in a while or because they gave her a gift can set the stage for her questioning whether she “owes” another person any type of physical affection when they’ve bought her dinner or done something else seemingly nice for her later in life.”
The Girl Scouts’ post encourages parents to offer their daughters ways to show gratitude that do not require physical contact, including “a smile, a high-five, or even an air kiss.”
