Could one cause of the carnage of school shootings and other rampant violence be right under our collective noses? What are we doing to our next best hope?

It was Christmas morning when 6 year old Kelly was exposed to our raunch culture for the first time. She excitedly opened one of her presents and pulled out a small doll.
It wasn’t the type of doll you might imagine a little girl playing with though. No, this was a new kind of doll. This was a doll invented as a result of people in America embracing the most recent feminist ideas.
The American College of Pediatricians (ACP) recently released a powerful position statement stating that the move to indoctrinate children with the idea that they can pick their gender amounts to child abuse.
They are urging legislators and educators to reject all policies that would condition children to accept chemical and surgical distortions allowing people to impersonate the opposite sex….
As a general rule, the attention span of boys tends to be shorter than that of girls. Obviously, this varies with each child. Depending on personality, boys are usually downright full of energy and constant motion unless they are ill. It helps to understand that this is not abnormal, most of the time.
Even boys who have wonderful powers of focus still have a tendency to bounce, fiddle with objects, look around, and generally want to be on the move. Sadly, boys are often ‘diagnosed’ with ADHD when they are just being boys.
Fortunately, it is possible to promote a healthy environment for your boys which will be more conducive for learning, if you are homeschooling (or not) and can control some of these lifestyle choices.
Most children today find it very difficult to be bored. There constantly needs to be something happening. We all really need to stop keeping our children entertained.
It’s truly not dangerous for them to be bored sometimes.
