Totally Catholic Youth Ministers Lounge

Are you in youth ministry and you've had it with crazed parents? Rollin' your eyes at the pastoral council? Tired of administration work? Love youth? Love the Church? Appalled at parish politics? Looking for some good games? For a creative ways to teach a lesson for Religious Ed? Just need a place to veg out and say "phew! Someone outside of the parish to talk to!"? Grab y'r Starbucks, turn the computer away from the staff's eyes, grab a seat on a donated dusty couch and let it all go.

And Then There's Choking...

I guess I hit the jackpot today on serious issues.

If you haven't heard of choking, it's a middle school fad where kids will choke each other until they pass out. The lack of oxygen causes them to get a high and the thinking is that if they aren't taking drugs or drinking then it won't hurt them.

I happened upon this discussion over at Lifeteen. Just read through some of the comments.

Most kids in this discussion are thankfully unaware of it or are advising against it. I'm intrigued that a girl asks about it anyhow-and it sounds like she does it.

Just want to give you a heads up about what might be going on out there.

This is actually fairly popular in high school as well. I knew many who did and probably still do take part in this activity.
