Things like this happen a lot... like that old show, "Gentle Ben". Let's teach viewers that bears are friendly. When did that become a good idea?
I realize this is a rant, and I am blowing it way out of proportion. There was a new doll that has been causing quite a stir, and it got me thinking about the things we teach kids without realizing it. To be completely honest, I am going to be an aunt very soon and I am both terrified and super excited! I suddenly find myself concerned about things I wouldn't have been concerned about before. I can safely say that the excitement is a much higher percentage than the fear.
