    'Nurturing' Youngsters.

    Interesting thought this, IMO anyway,:mad::biglaugh:. 'Apparently we are born with two inherent fears, they are the fear of falling and loud noises. Just how true is this I'm not sure, but speaking from experience having two children when they were young if they heard a loud noise they would flinch or cry and if I messed around with them and zoomed them up and down in the air the looks on their faces were at times of absolute fright.:embarrassed::biglaugh:. So I would say it is more than likely that it is true. You could have placed a snake, spider, on my children when they were young and they couldn't have cared less, it was more often me and mum who panicked. There has always been a 'nature' versus 'nurture' debate going on, and whilst this is in a similar vein it is a little different. I guess babies are the bravest souls among us if they know no fear,:notworthy:, but seriously I know we ALL have to teach our children the possible dangers of the world, but it is an interesting 'theory' to have, does our nurturing go too far at times and put the fear of God in children. Should we be a little less concerned about the ways of the world and to some degree 'let our children' go a little, or is it right to teach them 'our' fears. Lets face it, some of 'our' fears are well and truly unfounded, and to pass these emotions onto our children maybe a little unfair. I'm not saying DO NOT teach your children anything, after all there are many, many, dangers in this world that as responsible parents should teach our kids, but really, should we at times take a step back and not influence our children to such a degree. I'm not speaking of morality, etc, but the more peripheral ideas we have, like the fear of travel, spiders, snakes, foods, blah, blah, blah. I think that 'maybe' a few more children would ultimately be better equipped to face the world, without the fear of trying something new and exciting. Cheers Tony.:wink: Cheers Tony.
  2. Hi Everyone, I try to go through the young section as often as I can, but don't always catch every message or thread. Generally there isn't a problem, but we've had one young lad whose given out his email and msn addy in almost every post - so I have deleted the address, not sure his mum or dad know if he's registered or not - so just a reminder if you could to check with your youngsters to make sure their using the site as safely as they can be and not posting any addys. Also, if you notice they have been posted, please give myself or one of the other mods a shout as we can edit posts. Thank you Mrs Keily and Kdal for your words of wisdom about safety on the young peoples threads. Thanks Ali x

Underneath your name there is a little yellow round thing which looks like it has legs...we call it the 'Headless Chicken' when you like your friends post you click on this and leave a short message and your name and then your reputation builds up and you get more green bars for every 100 clicks. To view how many points you have already, you get the info from the User CP button on the top left of the screen on the PIO page, this will tell you your results and who has clicked your chicken. Have some fun, we have a virtual 'Chicken Hairdressers' and have changed our Avatars to chickens. On Sunday we all met on line for a virtual 'Roast Dinner' Join Billie in her social club, you get access by going to the user cp button and go down a little on the left and click on 'Social groups' you will find the group on there, so support each other, don't forget to let your parents know what you are doing and we adults will also support you by clicking your chickens too!!
