Just thought I'd share. A local news cast this morning was reporting that a study was conducted showing that there has been an increase in co-sleeping since 1995. The anchors started bantering about it. The man saying that why should the government waste money on a study people should do what they want. The woman even openly admitted that see sleep with her baby.

Pretty amazing really.

Thanks for sharing that. Great! I wish I could've seen it. I am so sick of misinformed people saying how unsafe co-sleeping is when it is so natural. It's good to hear some nice comments for a change.

very cool. nice to see some media people don't just take the fearmongers' bait hook-line-and-sinker. I'd have loved to see that show.

What was especially funny about the whole thing is how matter of fact they were. I should write a letter thanking them.

Yes, you really should. They need to know people appreciate comments like that.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
