Polls show Rudeness is a national epidemic. Boomer and Halley© is a delightful antidote!
Obnoxious behavior is everywhere. From people yammering on cell phones, to congressional shouting, snooty customer service, self-righteous sports stars and kids bullying in the schoolyard. Even “Reality TV” just shows us how bad we really can be. Rudeness is the “new normal,” and it has to stop!
A recent Rasmussen poll shows 87% of Americans think our culture is becoming ruder and less civilized. Another sobering fact: Rudeness costs corporate America $300 Billion dollars a year!
So what happened to manners and civility? Simple respect for others? Polite discussion instead of angry confrontation? Inclusion, not exclusion? Civility needs to Start Early and Start Now! This Mom’s Choice Award winning book series is a step in the right direction, and it’s destined for animation.
The wacky adventures of Boomer and Halley© (ages 4-8) showcase life lessons set in a small Southern town. The colorful characters of Shady Pines solve problems with common sense and common decency.
Adults are not only welcome here, but encouraged to participate in this safe, virtual cartoon world.
