Climate change is happening and our kids are creating a different world

I just saw a youtube about  amazing cooperation between two opposing  basketball teams in Texas. There are so many examples of children and teens doing things differently. They are choosing to be cooperative instead of competitive.  They are choosing to be peaceful instead of warlike. I am so grateful. It has always been part of my belief system that these new generations are offering us a new way of conceptualizing and living in our world.
Please check out the youtube Basketball Miracle

Parent- Child Talks, How to Grow a Healthy Adult?

parenting whimsy
When our kids were young, we had wonderful vegetable gardens. We worked hard at growing tomato's, beans, and zucchinis. We did not think that we were growing seedlings but  instead focused upon the ripe tomato or zucchini.
So I would like you to imagine that you are growing adults right now.

Parenting puppies and babies

Parenting puppies
I am so pleased to have so many folks read my last couple of blogs . Thank you.
As you can see from the last post, we have a new 10 week old puppy named Charlie. He moves so fast that my iPhone camera cannot keep up with him and all the photos are  pretty blurry....

Baby Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y, Millenials and Indigos

Charlie, our new puppy

I did some quick research about the birth dates for the generations that are called the Baby Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y, The Millenials or Indigos
It looks like this:
Baby boomers were born between 1946-1964
Gen Xers were born between 1965-1980
Gen Yers were born between 1980-2005
Indigos were born between 1980 -2005
Millenials were born between 1980-2005

New Kids and the Millenials

As a follow up to my last blog, I would like to list some characteristics that seem  to be descriptive  of many of the children and young adults under the age of 25.

They appear to be wiser than their young years.
They often tell the truth whether anyone will listen to them or not.
