Modeling Values For Your Family – Day 3 of Blog Tour

The old adage that our children do what we do and not what we say is appropriate here. If you treat other people with kindness and respect, your children will too. If you say please and thank you, your children will too. If you are honest and tell the truth, so will they be. Your children watch your every move. One of my favorite parenting quotes of all times is by author and expert, Joseph Chilton Pearce who said, “We must become the people we want our children to be.” What are you modeling for your children on a regular basis?

How Did I Get Back to Middle School After 28 Years?

How Did I Get Back to Middle School After 28 Years?

I have always thought that by being an involved parent, I would be able to help my kids in school. I could help by keeping in touch with all their friends and their families, knowing the kids by name, and being available to the staff at the school. Right now I feel helpless and frustrated with the procedures and policies about bullying in schools. Sitting on the PTA board at several schools for 12 years and the PTA Council board for 3 years, I feel that I am in touch with the school district and all the great things put in place for our kids. Then why am I attending middle school again after 28 years?

I am not a loud parent who is always complaining about policies or procedures at school. I have always been a big advocate to teach other parents about why certain policies or procedures have been put in place. The staff does have a very hard job trying to educate the kids while also keeping them out of trouble at the same time. Parents are not always the nicest people to communicate with and sometimes they get very angry or are not supportive.

Autism and Vaccine link to be proven tomorrow in courts

Directors of the Elizabeth Birth Center for Autism Law and Advocacy (EBCALA), parents and vaccine-injured children will hold a press conference on the steps of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (717 Madison Place, NW in Washington, DC) on Tuesday, May 10 at 12:00 PM to unveil an investigation linking vaccine injury to autism. For over 20 years, the federal government has publicly denied a vaccine-autism link, while at the same time its Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has been awarding damages for vaccine injury to children with brain damage, seizures and autism. This investigation, based on public, verifiable government data, breaks new ground in the controversial vaccine-autism debate.
