Video: Sticks and Stones

“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” Remember that saying from when you were growing up?

In the video that follows, comedian and Fox News host Tom Shillue explains how that saying — along with other things from his childhood — taught him that being offended is a choice. His trip down memory lane (with the politically incorrect Frito Bandito, Hawaiian Punch and the Armour hot dog jingle) shows how today’s environment of “microaggressions” is creating teenagers, college students and adults who just can’t handle life.

Shillue’s advice on how to raise, happy, well-adjusted kids who don’t crumple at every real or imagined offense is something that everyone needs to hear.
