A loving relationship can be an oasis in uncertain times, but nurturing it requires attention, honesty, openness, vulnerability, and gratitude.

This is why I never watch network tv anymore. Haven't watched it in about 20 years. I'll watch some shows on cable because they aren't as limited to just politically correct portrayals of people. I actually think network tv especially--ABC, NBC, CBS, etc. are very dangerous to youth because they never see people as they really are on tv. When you're a kid you don't have the experience in life yet to know what is real and what isn't real. I've always been happy that I grew up in the 1970s which was the last time there wasn't political correctness. By the 1980s everything was politically correct on network tv at least. In real life there aren't always 100% good people and 100% bad people. Many times good people do bad things and bad people do good things. There are alot of grey areas that aren't shown on tv. Also, on a side note, do you ever notice lawyers, judges, doctors, etc are all beautiful on tv? In real life I've dealt with lawyers, doctors and once or twice judges and I can tell you none of them were attractive. I'm not saying there aren't occasionally a lawyer, doctor or judge that is good looking but nothing like it is shown on tv. My advice? Have your kid go out and deal with the real world as early as possible and explain to him or her that what is on tv, especially network tv, isn't real and many times is the exact opposite of what real life is like.
