In the morning when I am getting ready for work, I often listen to Family Talk. Today they had an interesting interview with Rebecca Hagelin, Becoming a Culture Warrior – I. During the interview, to my astonishment, Hagelin mentioned this story.

Have we gone nuts? That’s not child abuse? Listen to the interview with Hagelin. Read the story about Tommy. Then think about what it means to be a role model for a small child.
As parents and grandparent, we each have a duty, and that is not just to our own children. We must work to help everyone protect children from anyone who would abuse a child.
