In society, violence is exploding. It is everywhere and no where is the explosion of violence more vivid then right behind the doors of our homes. Behind closed doors of homes all across this country, people are being beaten and killed. It is happening in cities, small towns, and in rural areas. It is crossing all social classes, genders, racial lines, and age groups. It is the legacy passed on from one generation to another.
I interned at Cape Town Fashion Week and had no idea what to expect. After interning for a week, I learnt that it was production that I was doing. I was told that I have a talent for producing and was offered a long term apprenticeship with a world renowned producer.

I have always been interested in savesociology.org and I studied it at university, so for me I am my own kind of living experiment in my role in Moscow. I am part of a gender role test. Admittedly, I am the only lab participant, short of a few other stray dads, that are floating about in the shadows of the city. The role norm, has been the way since the cave man. The cave man always got the meat and the woman to stayed in the cave grunting a tune, while combing her hair with a reluctant hedgehog.

Women, have increasingly become men, while men have increasingly become women. I often think the only thing that makes them different is their physical appearance.
From the nursing mother’s perspective, bringing the baby into the bed allows her to get significantly more sleep than she would if she had to get up and feed the baby each time he awoke during the night. If a breastfeeding infant nurses every one and a half to two hours, then it would mean that she spent more time out of bed than in it. Is it any wonder that mothers following this well-meaning advice soon tire of breastfeeding; never fully experiencing the joy of the bond between mother and child? From the father’s viewpoint, well…how about I save that one for the personal perspective?
The safest way to go about this is by talking to the children individually. Sit them down and ask their opinions. Kids feel important when you ask for their opinion.
If your venue for your first date is to be an annual social event, make sure that you ask for the date way in advance. This will assure your date that he/she was the first choice. Asking for a first time date on the eve of such an event or a few hours just before the event begins is a turn off to the other person. They might take it that you are looking for a rebound date.
