What Does It Take to be a Man?

I had a subtle reminder from 1984 last night at the Boston Concert so I thought I’d share it with you: What does it take to be a man? What does it take to see It’s all heart and soul A gentle hand? So easy to want and so hard to give How can you be a man ‘Till you see beyond the life you live? Oh, what does it take to be a man?   We can be blind, but a man tries to see It takes tenderness For a man to be what he can be And what does it mean If you’re weak or strong?

Digital Heroin

I’m struggling as a parent right now. Our goal is to limit screen time for the 9 year old and up to 2 hours per day and we have tools in place for that. But…about 9 months ago, the 16 (now 17) year old went out and bought a 3DS XL without our consent. After 5 warnings (I know, I shouldn’t give that many warnings) I asked for the device yesterday to which he refused as he has done probably 3-5 times in the last few months. Today after school he ran away for a couple of hours to “Some where, where I can play video games with out you clawing at my neck.” It is not coincidence that this video came across my desk today: Here’s the associated article. Read at your own risk. It is changing my thinking today. Digital...
