Why bring a child into this world

A perfect video to use with a debate about the reasons for or against bringing a child into the world. Have students brainstorm and then check if some of the same reasons are in this video.

Hat tip to Kieran Donaghy for letting us know about this video.

who is lunilever? (that might be an approximation of the name : ) )

I mean, I want to check those facts, I don't know if that's true. I guess I'd have to trust the UN for those kind of statistics, I don't know how accurate they are, but my hope is at least they try to be honest and have their eyes open. To care about everyone, everyone counts as equally as possible. Oh, I so grew up with Perry Mason on the tv!

I didn't look at the state of the world much when I had small children. I don't know how much of that you can take in and still try to tell your kids the world is good and to not be too scared to let them out the door to play. It's not fun to look at again :  ( But to parent a child, I had to have faith in the world. Just had to.

They responded to Palestine when the Israeli's invaded, and they were the only ones, I think, keeping accurate counts of casualties. It was quite moving to me, how quickly they were there to witness. And they keep a lot of statistical data too. Records of world stuff : )
