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?
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.

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.
