I wasn't planning to say anything about the rapper Chris Brown's alleged assault on his girlfriend, singer Rihanna, but an article I just read in Newsweek had some great points about what we can teach our children about relationships and domestic violence. And not just what we say to them, but how they observe us talking to others about it. Someone named Raina Kelley wrote, "Domestic Abuse Myths:Five Mistakes We Make When We Talk About Rihanna and Chris Brown's Relationship". And I just have to say, Preach it, sister!
I won't add my voice to the torrent of opinions, speculations, and relationship-dissections going on out there. Enough is being said, I suppose. I just think it's important that we think about how we think about this, and be purposeful in teaching a better way.
Peace, y'all. Now go click on that link. Go on, there's nothing else to see here!
