Helicopter Parents and a new blog

Photo credit: Michael Elins, Newsweek May 22, 2006

(Whole lotta linking going on today...)

OK, I just read a really funny article which I found through a fantastic blog that I'd checked a couple of times but never got round to reading properly and adding to my Google Reader. Links to both:

The article, which has given me a whole new insight into just how pushy parents can get. The term 'Helicopter Parents' has it's own Wikipedia entry even. Scary.

The blog, Fortify Your Oasis by Rowan Manahan, which looks like a real cracker and well worth a subscription and some regular attention.

Hope you enjoy both!

You wait James until you have children. These Parents are around even from the very early years

Good point, and I don't doubt it in the slightest!

I think the second word in that comment is most apt too - I will indeed 'wait' for a good while to have children; best for them and me I reckon!

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
