re-post from Andrew Sullivan

Well two things seem to be conspiring against me this week. Grades are due…and it is National No Screen Week. My daughter has taken this very seriously so finding any moments without her chastising me for sitting at the computer has been a trick.

In the spirit of the week but not wanting to offer nothing. I realized it had been quite some time since I horrified anyone virtually by ignoring taboos. My students in class tell me I horrify them regularly.

A pastor friend sent this link to me this week with the admonition that those of us who care about teenagers, who really care about them and their future lives as adults have to pay attention to this and be willing to talk about it. I do, and I am.

Andrew Sullivan posted “Being master of your own domain” with comments by many. It is worth the listen to the Ted talk, and the reading of the comments. Enjoy!
