4. Ostrich Parents Encourage Teen Pregnancies: Meanwhile emus are pressuring children to wear tube-tops and trumpeter swans are promoting sexting.
5. Should Kids See Their Parents Naked?: Or is it better to blindfold them and let them explore their parents’ nude bodies through the sense of touch alone?
