Today, on the 8th anniversary of the terrorist attack on our nation, take a moment to remember. Thank God for His protection and for leaders whose actions have protected us from another attack on our soil. Pray for the victims' families who endure this anniversary every year.
PAW - Parents Are Watching
The kids are back in school now, with new homework assignments and research projects. That means more Internet use, which means you need to protect your kids on the Internet. You cannot assume that your children are immune from the risks posed by the Internet.
Parents have their hands full staying ahead of the harmful trends, but there are basic steps to take, no matter what the technology. Talk to your kids about Internet safety and establish some basic rules for computer, video game, and cell phone use. Supervise your child's Internet searches to make sure they are not inadvertently exposed to harmful content. Become familiar with common texting abbreviations like PAW ("Parents Are Watching"). You can find more of these terms and a list ofhelpful resources on our website.
Reversing Another Napolitano Action
Last Friday, Governor Brewer reversed another illegitimate move made by Governor Janet Napolitano. Former Governor Napolitano used the administrative rule process to circumvent the Legislature and redefine "dependent" for state health insurance to include unmarried "domestic partners." Brewer and the Legislature corrected this abuse of power in one of the budget bills that Brewer signed on Friday. CAP applauds the efforts of the Legislature and Governor Brewer to correct Napolitano's efforts to usurp the Legislature's authority.
Parents Beware - Again
On a Sunday afternoon in October, with the weather cooling off, you might be thinking it's a great time to take your kids out to the Phoenix Zoo. Unfortunately, you need to be aware that Phoenix Prides is sponsoring an event called "OUTday" to celebrate and promote homosexual behavior on Sunday, October 11, at the Zoo. If you don't want your children exposed to this event when you go to see the elephants, I encourage you to pick another day to visit the Zoo.
