“Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard explains why she might boycott the 4th Democratic debate.”
Tulsi Gabbard recently did a “local” radio interview, where the interviewer was trying to ask an honest question about her religious views [as they differ from her radical fathers views]…
…She would not stop interrupting the question, never allowed it to be completed, and kind of gave a scolding about the alleged inappropriateness of the question, then ultimately got up and walked out of the interview…
It was very unexpected, weird and frankly annoying…I know I did not appreciate that behavior.
I really wanted to hear the question [I don’t know much of anything about her past], and an answer to it.

“A half century ago the Colombo family took the ugly wall bed and remade it into something stylish, easy-to-use and a lot more than just a moving bed. In the 1970s they added a table to the pull-down bed, then a sofa and eventually began to remake all furniture in the home.
Today Clei creates morphing bunk beds, pop-up desks, slide-out tables, “bookish” open-out kitchens and even entire walls that open up to create pop-out, fully-furnished rooms.
We stopped for a visit with the family at their offices and showroom in the Brianza region of Northern Italy where “every corner” is a furniture company according to architect and designer Pierluigi Colombo who took us for a tour.

“It’s often said that there is no handbook for raising kids. Such is even truer when it comes to a child’s sexual behavior and development.
Though sex education, in general, has improved in some schools, psychologist Toni Cavanagh Johnson says in her book Understanding Children’s Sexual Behaviors that most schools still just instruct about “plumbing.” My impression is a bit worse.
Over the years, my college students say that sex education for kids is more like a horror movie: what diseases look like and why not to engage in any sexual behavior. When I ask my students if they were ever taught about healthy sexuality or positive sex, they look at me puzzled. In my 16 years of teaching, only one student said they learned about sex in a positive way.
Yet in a study published by CQ Researcher showed that when kids were told the truth about sexuality and were taught about healthy sex, choices, and boundaries, sexual activity among high school kids dropped by 40%, and those that did choose to engage made much smarter and careful choices.
I understand that some parents may cringe when they hear the words child and sexuality put together; however, Cavanagh Johnson notes that such sexual development starts under three, and how parents handle these stages is critical: 3 and under, 4-9 years, and 10-12 years.
So often, parents think that only older kids become interested in each other during adolescence and that having interest when kids are younger is a sign that something is wrong. This is not true. For example, a book I used with my own children It’s So Amazing! A Book About Eggs, Sperm, Birth, Babies, and Families was extremely helpful in helping my kids in an age appropriate way to understand how the body works, reproduces, and what a girl and boy can expect when reaching puberty.”
