Wow, what a response...

It's nice to see I struck a nerve with some of you. The politically correct CRAP is spreading faster than you realize. Some of you have seen it... and it's getting worse.

Madison is in a corporate-owned daycare center. Thus the crap. But it's our job at home to make the difference and teach her what we think is important. In the big picture the care she receives and the environment she's in there outweighs the PC policy. In talking with others I know who have children in daycare - I'm not alone. Pretty soon Santa Claus is going to be the "Holiday Representative". Right? In this oversensitive, sue-happy society we've become, this is how everyone covers their ass. Bottom line.

Teach your children to have open minds, to think outside the proverbial box, and make sure you celebrate all the fun things you always had when you were young. It's the best way to beat this societal shift. Any other ideas?

Now - I posted twice tonight - so for the lighthearted piece, read below. :)

all this PC stuff is ridiculous but you're very right - our kids learn mostly from us.

Good parenting the root of everything.

Unfortunately not every has the mindset of you and leave their kids to be parented by babysitters, day cares and the TV. Thus is the crappy state of our world today...

Keep up the good work!

I fear that Santa will not be named Holiday Representative until he admits that Mrs. Claus does an equal amount of the work and lets the elves join a union. B(

surprising to hear that a daycare in NV is more PC than NV schools themselves. Personally I don't think the daycare should be worrying about the PC stuff, I think it's up to the school's to TEACH about all the different holiday seasons and how other cultures celebrate them, so at least the kids know why the holiday is being referred as such and such. I know this was the first year (out of 2) that they talked about 9/11 in school, and I think that's something to talk about every year - not just 1, 5, 10 or 15 years.

I couldn't agree with you more. I need to not get on this soap box. All I will say is that it is so important for children to learn about different customs and traditions, so they can respect and understand different people.
