Hollywood is known for sending the WRONG messages to our kids. They promote a false sense of success, what it takes to get there, and what the definition of "sexy" is. I was completely surprised when I saw this speech given by Ashton Kutcher at the Teen Choice Awards 2013.
Now, let me first say this - I am in NO WAY endorsing Ashton Kutcher, his lifestyle, or his ability to be a strong and positive influence for children. However, I think his words were refreshing and in many ways shocking among a Hollywood that rarely sends positive messages to our kids.
I wish every child would learn lessons 1 and 2 that he shares. Now, #3 borders on Humanism (build your own world), but overall it is a very positive message. Nothing spiritual here, but lessons each of our kids need to learn nonetheless.
