here and there
started with a prayer dance followed by various items presented by the various communities like the East Indian Wedding Ceremony, the Mangalorean Roce, Dance from Kerala, Tamil Nadu and the tribals. Our choir also entertained the people when dinner was on.
The highlight of the evening was the power point presentation by Fr. Vincent, who detailed to all present, about the activities of the Parish. Many of the parishioners were themselves amazed at the numerous activities that benefit the less privileged of the parish and who need economic, moral and spiritual support.
All in all, we must say that it was an evening of fun, frolic, excitement and entertainment. 1200 people had assembled to meet, to know, to greet and to take part in the most joyous celebration. This celebration will continue year after year and we hope and pray that with the support of well-wishers and friends, the Parish of St. Sebastian, will grow and set a mark for others to follow.
Researchers urge parents to go beyond 'big talk' about sex
Parents should consider having repeated discussions with their children about many aspects of sex instead of one “big talk” on impersonal topics linked to sexuality such as puberty, researchers said on Monday.
“Parents who take a checklist approach to broadening their sexual discussion with their children are unlikely to have as great an influence … as parents who introduce new sexual topics and then develop them through repeated discussions,” said their report published in the journal Pediatrics.
The study, entitled “Beyond the 'Big Talk',” used written surveys given to 312 children in Southern California aged 11 to 15 to assess how frequent and candid their conversations were with their parents about sex.
The more parents talked with their children, the closer their relationships, wrote researchers Steven Martino and colleagues at the Rand Corporation.
