It seems to me that today's children are throwing away their childhood with both hands. I'm hearing stories of 13 year-olds giving blow jobs on the school bus. I'm hearing about 14 year-olds who want to go on the pill. I loved my childhood...It was fun, a carefree time without a worry in the world. I even managed to graduate high school a virgin. I know this all sounds old fashioned to many of you. Do they realize what they are throwing away? Do they even realize they are doing it? In their quest to be an adult, don't they realize they will only be children ONCE. The fun time when the only care you had was to catch a jar of lightning bugs. Or build a snow fort with your siblings...or play jacks or marbles...it was a simpler time then, but our children are growing up too fast and I'm afraid they might regret it. To be an adult brings on tremendous pressure to obtain a good job, to buy or not to buy a house, to meet and marry the right partner...once they step into that world, do they realize there's no going back? Please, no bashing...I'm just worried about our little ones. Don't even get me started on the Jerry Sanduskys in the world.
