Cuddle Party

Everyone needs contact comfort sometimes.  Not everyone has ample opportunities for this in facetime.  So here is a chance for a cuddle party in cyberspace.  Virtual cuddling can help people feel better.

We have a
cuddle room that comes with fort cushions, fort frames, sheets for draping, and a weighted blanket.  It has a basket of grooming brushes, hairbrushes, and styling combs.  A bin holds textured pillows. There is a big basket of craft supplies along with art markers, coloring pages, and blank paper.  The kitchen has a popcorn machine. Labels are available to mark dietary needs, recipe ingredients, and level of spiciness. Here is the bathroom, open to everyone.  There is a lawn tent and an outdoor hot tub. Bathers should post a sign for nude or clothed activity.  Come snuggle up!

For summer, I have added baskets of water balloons and water guns.  A free-fire zone has been marked in the yard for interested participants.

Early Puberty Risks

This article claims to cite health problems caused by early puberty.  They're not.  Those health risks are caused by sexual harassment and abuse, which are increased by early puberty.   The actual health risks of early puberty include stunted growth and endocrine problems.  It's important to clarify causes and effects if you want to solve a problem.  If you want to stop the psychological problems, stop treating 8-year-olds like sexually mature women.  If you want to stop the physical problems, try a moderate diet free of growth hormones and other endocrine disruptors.
