Adults only like themes of adolescence that matter to us. Do the teens care? Who knows – adults are boring
What will teens be obsessed with next, I wonder? Here’s the other thing I wonder about: why are adults so obsessed with teens? Why not old folks, or the perimenopausal?

If anyone has evidence of satanic abuse in Scotland they should take it to the police, but lurid media reporting of unsubstantiated claims is counterproductive
“EXCLUSIVE: Charities claim that the satanic abuse of children is rife” screamed the headline in the Express on Sunday earlier this month. The piece reports that two charities, Kilmarnock-based Break the Silence and Dundee-based Izzy’s Promise, believe satanic abuse to be rife in Scotland and that it has been for decades. They say children are forced to take part in satanic rituals involving the sacrifice of babies and the making of snuff movies. According to Kate Short of Break the Silence, “Victims are so brainwashed they don’t dare to speak out.” These are obviously extremely serious allegations – but are they true?
A similar, although more detailed, story ran on the same day in the Scottish Express. Both stories point out that Police Scotland has said it is taking the allegations “incredibly seriously”. Following the Jimmy Savile child sex abuse scandal, it would be very surprising if they had said anything else. We now know that many of Savile’s victims had complained of being abused at his hands at the time the abuse was taking place and that they were ignored by those in authority. That this happened is a disgrace and the result was that Savile was free to abuse dozens, possibly hundreds, more victims.

Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health suggests set of measures to help reduce UK’s child mortality rate
The national speed limit in built-up areas should be cut to 20mph to reduce the death toll of children on the roads, the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health has said.
The college has challenged the next government to implement the new limit as part of a set of measures that it says would help reduce the UK’s child mortality rate – the second worst in Europe – and radically improve the state of child health.
