Anti-pornography video to help teach kids-link to a website

I'm going to do some shameless promotion for a short children's film because it's one that my husband has made:)  It isn't about birth, but it is about helping to teach children values so I thought it kind of fit.  Here's the description of it my the web site:

"En route to get ice cream sandwiches, three friends stop to discover a magazine which they soon discover contains pornographic images. The boys, without immediate parental influence, choose to not look at it, and take it home to their mom to destroy it.  This video will both make you smile and reinforce positive moral values, while dealing with a serious and important issue.
This short animation takes a direct approach to addressing the topic of pornography with younger children.  It uses the words "porn" and "pornography," and appropriately addresses the topic, while not showing any content which would be deemed inappropriate or suggestive.  The story, written by Nycole Larsen, was first published in The Friend, the children's magazine for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints."

You can buy the download for $1 at his site:

Here's a link to another short video he's done so you can see if you like his stuff or not....

Ok...I'll get back to the birthing stuff now:)

Cool, let me know how it goes. I'd be curious to see how your kids react to it.

Birth is a Journey: Does it have to be life changing?

  • One woman might have to climb on an overfilled boat, risking her life and nearly dying as she escapes over the ocean to come to this land. This experience could certainly be life altering. It may very well color the rest of her life, positively or negatively. (I overcame this amazing struggle and here I am triumphant! OR Holy crap, that was SO hard I don’t know if I can go on! By the way, neither response is “right”. No one would judge the woman with the 2nd response.)
  • One woman may buy an airplane ticket, sit on a comfortable 747 and fly to America with a nice smooth flight and landing. She is happy to be in America. Those welcoming her are glad she is here safe and sound. She may only travel by plane 2-4 times in her life, so it is pretty memorable. But the journey itself probably wouldn’t be life changing; it would simply be a journey.
  • One woman may learn to fly an ultra-light plane to lead a flock of geese into America teaching them to migrate. This experience could certainly be empowering and life altering.
