Australian Parenting PSA banned. For being too real? You will want to see this.
July 22, 2013 FirstTimeMomandDad.com 6 Comments
In 2006, NAPCAN, Australia’s National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect created a profound and thought provoking 90-second public service announcement (PSA) titled Children See, Children Do. The spot depicts children mimicking the behaviors of the adults they are following. While I admit this is a very dark PSA, and watching the children mimic some of the disturbing behaviors is difficult, the ad is brilliant. Absolutely. Brilliant.
The video starts out innocent enough with a child mimicking an adult walking through a town square talking on a mobile phone, but then the behaviors copied gradually intensify to smoking, racism, animal neglect and even domestic violence....
Will this become the next big thing??

The invisible mom... are you to blame for her isolation?

I was so moved that I want to share it with you in hopes that you too will learn about the isolation that a parent of a child with special needs endures, and more importantly, hopefully join me in being the change these parents and their children deserve-kindness and consideration.

Wordless Wednesday- DIY for Dummies Vol. 2
July 03, 2013 April McCormick 6 Comments
I am a DIY dummy through and through. I burn myself with hot glue guns... I... basically am all thumbs when it comes to crafts. Which really sucks! I like to paint! I like to bedazzle stuff! I like to get all Martha Stewart around the holidays... but unfortunately my fingers turn into thumbs at the sight of glue guns, paints, and popsicle sticks. So, in an effort to be more crafty I have searched high and low for easy crafts that even I can pull off... preferably just by looking at the photo.
So Here goes... Wordless Wednesday- DIY for Dummies Vol. 2 (I will put a link to VOL 1 at the bottom of this post so you can check it out of you missed it)

Slowly but surely from the age of 12, with the help of therapy, I worked hard to recognize that my world would not explode if I stepped on a crack, or worse, things moved an inch from their assigned place on my dresser. Some of my issues I decided were OK, and carried them with me into my adult life; like making my bed everyday, even if it was right before I got in it, and keeping an obnoxiously organized sock drawer. Basically, I kept my neat freak tendencies as long at they did not completely rule my day, and let go of the unnecessary rituals; like checking for my keys 20 times before locking the door, and making sure the hangers in my closet were perfectly spaced before going to sleep.
So then, you must be wondering how I have managed to almost completely overcome an illness that I have been battling for most of my life? One word...
