Kids! Now more than ever kids are taking society and our culture by storm. Starting off with the movie Newsies to the new show "Kid Nation," kids are showing just how much power they can wield. Kid Nation is a new fall series that will air on CBS within the genre of a reality show. Some kids lead, some will follow, but all will come out changed.
Check out the link to see the preview of what it will be all about. I have a feeling this show will be a big hit! Of course some are calling it wrong with the potential to do more harm than good. At the very least it gives us and idea of how society views kids.
Then, at the same time, you have this little survey. The Pew Research Company conducted the survey (Click Here for their website). Strange how to seeminly opposite things can exist at the same time? (There is a technical name for this, I just can't think of it at the moment.)
So how important are kids to you? Do you look for opportuniteis to teach and learn from them? Do you look for ways to leave a legacy in their lives? The thing is...kids are learning something from somewhere. I would like to be a GOOD influence on them, instead of having someone else be a BAD one. As CM Volunteers, you are in a position to influence the lives of kids and families, so reach out and change the life of at least one.
