Well, the video has sent out wide speculations if the left-handed hip-hopper in shade, seen smiling over a cash game of dominoes for about 1:01 is the US President. The speculation drive to the fact that Obama would have been involved with voter registration drives in Chicago in 1993.

Source: Garth Sundem, used with wife's permission When we hike, my 5-year-old daughter wants to play math quiz. I ask her things like, “If there are eight legs in a family that includes one dog, how many people are in the family?” And this helps take her mind off the miles. She likes math. She’s good at it.

If you went into the same room and listened to other things, such as: the speaker’s body language, tone, and paraverbal communication (e.g. angry, defeated, excited, warm); the words behind the words (translation!: “finish by the deadline!” “teach to the test!” “sell sell sell!”); how the audience reacts to the information (furiously jotting down notes and scribbling words, nodding heads in agreement, chuckling, yawning, cringing, texting, etc.); the relationships, alliances, or conflicts within the room (For example, Joe sitting far from Bob and avoiding eye contact, Amy sitting next to her buddy Ann); the hidden agendas (for example, vying for power, airing old baggage through subconscious jabs, or trying to inspire); then you would be a little closer to the truth.

It is entirely natural for children to be curious about sex, especially as they become keenly aware of and learn about their own bodies and the bodies of others. An example is the innocent question “Where do babies come from?” As children witness the life experience of a pregnant woman’s growing belly, there are obvious differences that will likely result in questions. Stork Delivering Baby Source: Shutterstock Used With permission Yet, even today, the stork gets credit for the births of far too many children. This happens because for many parents these conversations can be riddled with confusion and apprehension. Contrary to popular belief sex education at any age does not include discussing the mechanics of, or intimacy involved in, the act of sexual intercourse. Sex education can start by helping children understand their bodies and the bodies of others, in a developmentally appropriate way that promotes body … [Read more...] about Sexually Transmitted Infections Are on the Rise
