Do I stand for something (or sit for something at my computer for that matter)?
Do you say it with authority, or dance around it like a school teacher discussing Spring rather than Easter, or Winter Break rather than Hanukkah?
Has this climate of 'Political Correctness' created the current generation of communicators? Our kids now say 'ya know..., rather than I Think.... Have we raised them to always test the waters before giving their opinion, lest they offend someone?
Do they have an opinion?
Have we invited them to discuss it with us, their parents? Or, are we content to just let them plug in to the likes of Paris Hilton, The Kardashians and Angry Birds without a thought to plugging them into their future as intelligently-speaking, society-contributing adults? I love Taylor Mali's opinion ~
Who am I kidding? It's not like I've never said, "Whatever", while rolling my eyes (I'm so glad I don't have girls). Or, at least I'm not so totally clumsy that I, like, totally broke both my legs when I was 8 months pregnant! I mean, like, Epic Fail!
Okay, that one I totally did.
Do you, "question authority" AND "speak with it"?
Do you allow your kids to do the same?
