  1. I couldn’t agree more. In 400 BC, Plato was one of the first to actually be documented while disparaging the youth of his generation. I’m sure these sentiments have been around since the beginning of time. But it is important to remember that words are power–the power to create or destroy. Children are like sponges, and the script they hear in their early years from parents and mentors will be repeated later in their lives. So the influential adults in a child’s family need to be prepared for the consequences of their “script.” I’ve written a children’s story entitled The Lost Mermaid~A Shem Creek Moonlight Jamboree about about a mythical mermaid. It iconveys a social lesson about the danger of judging others by appearance and language. The lessons we want to impart need to begin at the beginning. The words children hear, the stories we read all contribute to cultivating a kind and compassionate society. Jan DiRuzzo http://www.lilythelostmermaid.com

    1. Thank you for your comments. I do believe that the world suffers greatly, because of its treatment of children, true not all children, but the mistreatment of one child is enough to cause suffering on this earth. Perhaps you can send me a book for review. Call 773-828-9338 and I can review on my Chicago Radio wordpress blog. —Nicole
