Sexual harassment in schools and why boys can be victims too

Who's got time to think about sex?  Not us!

We’ve got our dog so who’s got time to think about sex? Not us!

Not sure that this post I read recently:  “The Trouble With Stealing Kisses” by Purposefully Scarred had the right title.  Only because I felt the writer successfully offered a more important perspective on what we as parents are possibly teaching our children about sex (sometimes unconsciously), and especially since we exist in a world abounding with sexual innuendo.

WordPress Photo Challenge: Off Season

Another Time

Another time, another world

when little boys were little …

when they found pleasure in playing

with wonderful things ‘in season’:

Throwing shiny red cricket balls

at pretend wickets every day

Kicking footballs into our parked cars

then giggling, ran away

Riding bicycles through the streets

bopping and hopping (oh please be safe!).

But now such play is ‘off season’

The balls are all but forgotten

Lying under leaves rotten

Yet old tyres still wait

for another play date …

… and hopefully a new season.

My fun submission for the WordPress Photo Challenge: Off Season

“This week, we challenge you to show us what off-season means to you. It could be the shuttered ice-cream stand in the Southern Hemisphere where winter is drawing near. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere it might your snowmobile peeking out from beneath its tarp, or your Christmas decorations arranged neatly in the attic. Feel free to interpret this theme loosely — consider objects at rest and unmoved, places that are stagnant or abandoned.”

Let’s become as little children

Let's become like little children

For of such is the kingdom of heaven

Matthew 19:13-14

King James Version (KJV)

Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.

But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 18:1-3

King James Version (KJV)

At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
