I am so grateful to not be a kid today.
Not because they are forced to grow up faster, or that the world is filled with far scarier things than when I was young.
No — it’s because children today are so sheltered.
Case in point: some schools are calling Easter eggs “spring spheres’ to be PC…and the Sticky Egg can’t help but take this one a bit personally.
I understand the religious aspects of Easter can’t be taught to children in schools. I get that. I support that.
You can hide eggs and chomp chocolate bunnies at Easter time without acknowledging the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ…just as you can decorate a tree in your house and exchange gifts at Christmas without celebrating the birth of the Christ child.
I have Jewish friends that do both without experiencing any religious conflict.
So, let’s just take a breath, shall we — and make sure we’re not so busy protecting our kids that we don’t squeeze the life right out of ‘em.
(Spring spheres? I never…)
