Baby Name Trends, What to Avoid

muppetbabies

Besides Christmas, December means endless lists summarising the year that was and we begin the reflection with a look at popular baby names.  Personally I’d want to know in order to avoid them, just like fashion trends sometimes it’s best to go off piste although perhaps not as much as Gwyneth Paltrow!

Reflecting the diversity of Britain, Muhammad shot to the number one spot as the most popular baby name, perhaps Wills and Kate can consider it for little No.2 next year? I’m a Muslim and this is the

Wanker Of The Week

Eddie Shah court case

Step up Eddy Shah!

Where does this guy get off? Apparently by reckoning underage girls i.e. CHILDREN that consent to sex must take the blame for the abuse they suffer. He doesn’t mean “rape rape” he means girls who “throw themselves as celebrities” I certainly hope he’s not describing himself as a celeb, I thought he was Asian until I saw his gross face on our screens after being acquitted for raping two underage girls (acquitted due to lack of evidence, not that he didn’t do it).

The Amazing Sally Bollywood

Sally04_OK

If there are no little people in your family you won’t know about the amazing Sally Bollywood, a cartoon series that is a delight to watch!  There is a cracking soundtrack, wacky but believable kitsch interiors and excellent plots.

Sally has her own detective agency that she runs in her basement along with best pal and techie, Doowee and they get cases from their school friends

Wax Off

Did I miss something? Poetic?

Ok, I’ve tried to avoid it and ignore it and hope it just went away but I am now forced to join the pubic hair debate that is rocking the nation (well, it is if you read leftie papers).

Like the 30-something journos I am gutted that 92% of 8-16 year olds have seen hard core porn. Hard core! And apparently the effect of this on our children’s minds is that they feel pubic hair is gross and girls need to be bare “down there”.

Saville: Brushed Under The Carpet

The outbreak of Jimmy Saville allegedly molesting several young girls and rape has caused great concern amongst the British public. The issue raised for me in this whole tragedy is why, when people such as the former colleagues and staff including the former BBC chief Lord Michael Grade had heard rumours, they did not take it any further.

His family are outraged at the allegations and ask for his reputation not to be tarnished as he is not alive to defend himself. However, the number of women are growing on a daily basis and if he did do this then his victims need to be heard and full inquiry needs to take place at the BBC who housed Mr Saville for his career.

Girls Rock!

Across the USA, there are a number of camps set up by an Atlanta-based non-profit organisation that exists to empower girls aged 10-16 to express themselves through rock music.

The girls -only music camps were set up to encourage girls to let go and, through encouragement and professional volunteers, form a band, perform, write lyrics, learn basic rock instrument chords and go crazy-wild

A Worried Parent

Dear Diary,

I was really shocked when I heard about the secret implantation of contraception in teenage girls. To my knowledge, sex under 16 is still illegal and for me this is just condoning underage sexual activity?

I do believe that sex education needs to be progressive, but is handing out contraceptives really the way forward? Maybe….. As a mother of two toddler girls, this is scary. Are my children going to be having sex at 10????

The Pink Stinks Campaign

Looking around our house, every other toy is pink. Going through my daughters’ wardrobe, there is a high content of pink. The pink pages stare at me from the toy catalogues. There are pink cups, plates and bowls in the kitchen. Despite our efforts to stay away from pink, we are buried in pink stuff!!! I totally understand what British social enterprise, Pink Stinks, is going on about. Their campaign challenges the culture of pink to overhaul the gender stereotypes.

Lelli Kelly’s All Made Up

Has anyone seen the recent Lelli Kelly adverts for girls shoes on television? My three year old watches Milkshake on Channel 5 in the mornings and I cannot believe that they are advertising make-up for girls with these shoes.
