We love good cosplay, and it only gets better when you start adding more people to the theme. Here are some amazing groups that prove the family that cosplays together stays together. (cosplay, families, people, cute, geek, costumes)
Kenneth Weene's insight:
I was never one for dress-up, but these families sure look like they're having fun.

More 20-Something Americans Are Staying Single, Report Says

More 20-Something Americans Are Staying Single, Report Says | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
While more 30-somethings are opting to live together instead of marrying
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Marriage, like religion, is falling out of favor and is being replaced by personal commitment in the form of co-habitation. In part, at least, this is due to women being more committed to taking care of themselves and their children economically and to not being dependent on men. It also, in part, reflects that decreased interest in formal religion. Since the far has been emphasizing the religious sacramental side of marriage in its attack on GAY marriage, that has to make the marriage ceremony less attractive to young adults who think of themselves as spiritual or even atheist. At any rate, this is an interesting trend, one which will make many prospective grandparents uncomfortable.

How American Hopsitals Are Failing Mentally Ill Kids

How American Hopsitals Are Failing Mentally Ill Kids | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
A new study shows that one in 10 hospitalized kids suffer from mental-health conditions—and many never make it past the emergency waiting room.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Having spent my career in mental health, and especially care of children and adolescents, I must add that prevention is as important as improving hospital care. Prevention must include not only psychotherapy for those who need assistance coping but also family education and economic assistance for those who need it.

And of course, you should read #Memoirs From the Asylum."

Teachers to talk about their divorces at primary school level | NewsBiscuit

Teachers to talk about their divorces at primary school level | NewsBiscuit | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Children as young as five will now be given compulsory lectures on their teachers’ domestic hell as Divorce Education is made compulsory in primary schools. The move comes amid fears children are accessing material such as Don’t Tell the Bride and One Born Every Minute, as well as websites depicting couples in healthy loving relationships, and getting a skewed impression of what marriage is really like.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

On a more serious note, how do schools teach children about the changing nature of family life and its alternative forms? When I was a kid, Dick and Jane had two parents, Mommy and Daddy. Everybody loved their dog, Spot; and all of Beaver's friends were white. Dads knew everything and were never abusive or drunk and we all celebrated Christmas. Today, many adults want to keep their children in that same kind of fantasy world, but reality is much richer if more difficult.

I am so grateful for my fellow Stooshpr member Kenneth Weene for this great little short story. It is full of good humour, pathos and cleverly-observed childhood lives. I commend it to you. Stooshp...
Kenneth Weene's insight:

It's always a delight to share one of my stories with a new audience. I hope that the Australians can appreciate American baseball. I'm sure the can enjoy the universality of growing up and childhood.
