If you are in the Chicago area on July 26th come check out the Awassa Children’s Project (ACP) Fundraiser! The fundraiser is free and is focused on trying to get as many people as possible aware of what Awassa Children’s Project is doing in Awassa, Ethiopia.
I believe there is a basic kind of judgement that allows humans to assess every aspect of life. We are kept safe (either ourselves or by others) with this kind of “assessment judgement”. This kind of judgement allows you to make choices for your own life and family, form healthy opinions, and take action in dangerous situations.
Then there is the kind of judgement I find to be toxic to humanity. This is the type of judgement where humans … Keep Reading!!!
Here is another thing I can add to the list: “Stupid S*** People Have Said About Me”. Apparently, I’m going to be on a reality series about “Extreme Parenting”. Wait, I am? Why didn’t anyone tell me this?
I was notified of this by several posts circulating around the internet saying I’ve “signed on” to be a part of a new TV series that is currently in the bidding phase with cable networks. I’ll skip the links to … Keep Reading!!!
Not only are they truly trying to capture the beauty of attachment parenting, they also want to show the importance of a father’s role in parenting.
I can’t wait to see the shots Lori captured of Brian with the … Keep Reading!!!
I actually have a pretty bad confession, and I want to share it because I never thought about how I might be contributing to something immoral.
We live in a building that is super close. Our floor leaves doors open and we treat it like an open community. After the TIME cover came out we were welcomed back to a supportive and protective group of people.
We also share our technology.
We all share the same internet, have synced iPods, … Keep Reading!!!
“Girls just don’t like me.”
I started hearing those words for the first time in middle-school. I still hear grown women saying some form of that phrase (“All of my friends are men, I just get along with them better.” -I bet you’ve heard that one before). I bought into it like everyone else did. I had friends tell me that other girls didn’t like me, and so the seed was planted. I learned to judge and fear women, and … Keep Reading!!!

The Ring Leader: Meet Paul Chadha

First in a series with Dr. Jay Gordon.
We asked you on our facebook page what questions you had for Dr. Jay Gordon.
Here are his answers to five of your questions:
1. My middle daughter has autism. Are there any supplements that he would recommend for her?
My approach is very basic: a sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy free diet is the heart of treatment kids with ASD. Some children with autism don’t absorb vitamins and other … Keep Reading!!!
Brian and I met the month I turned sixteen. He was almost twenty-one at the time. He wanted nothing to do with me because I was so young. Needless to say, I was fuming by this rejection. I didn’t hear from him … Keep Reading!!!
I keep getting asked this question:
“Do you think using the media is good way to spread an important message?”
I absolutely do! There are some things worth mentioning before jumping into something as crazy as a potential media firestorm, though.
Your entire family needs to be on-board. You are a unit, make important decisions as one. A media firestorm will effect every member of your family, so you’ll all need to be … Keep Reading!!!
It’s no secret- I have no sense of direction.
GPS was invented for people like me, and ironically I still have yet to own a vehicle with built-in GPS, or the device itself.
Anyway, a few days ago I managed to get lost with the with the kids again. We were … Keep Reading!!!
