Telf Tessa Dalton, I immediately thought of the conversation we had the other day, when noticed the term "she persisted," referenced in this video, which is entirely unrelated to anti-Trumpism, or the modern political circus.

That was a good story. Unfortunately, it loses credibility. The scene which describes Agnes' childhood training does not show Agnes. It shows Olga Korbut.

I got to bath my Mom after she passed. And dress her in something special and place a rose in her hand before the funeral home came. It was a special moment for me that helped me to grieve. Holding her hand as she took her last breath is a memory I will always have in my heart. Her anniversary is April 29 2011💗

(I know this video doesn't really say it much, but...) How about instead of telling women in authoritarian positions it's ok to be bossy and rude (to the whole bossy men are ok but bossy women are bitches argument), we make it socially taboo to be a hardass/bossy/rude boss at all. There are far better and more efficient ways to manage people, which is what we should be teaching.

There are some women who would be unable to care for a special needs child with this degree of disability. Unfortunately in many states she wouldn't have the choice to abort,she would have to carry to full term and then not have any support to care for the child.

Sadly, it's usually the people who jump all over the chance to shame a fellow co-human that are hurting the worst. The incapacity to love themselves leads to hating & blaming others. So let us remind ourselves that every time we choose NOT to hate on another human being we are inadvertently choosing to love ourselves. Sometimes you gotta start small and work up. ❤

Ok no straws? What about plastic cups or plastic bottle ring things. Or plastic bags? Or better yet just get rid of all plastic. The problem is not how much plastic we use. It's how we dispose of it.
yesterday at 21:02
I never understand why restaurants give out so many straws. If you don't need straws at home why do we expect them at restaurants?
yesterday at 20:28
And until about 25 years ago, plastic straws and plastic cups weren't even a thing. They should be ILLEGAL. All of that plastic shit should be taxed and regulated back out of existence.

When somewhere in the range of 70% of porn actors suffer from addiction, depression, and other major issues, and upwards of 90% of sex workers have experienced rape or abuse, there is most certainly something wrong in the industry.
Banning porn of consenting adults (!) might not be sensible, but certainly some regulation is.

Canada.. Govt offers One year mat leave for 65 or 60% of your pay. Some good companies tops up the other 40% for the first six months. Not to mention generous monthly allowance for the child from federal and provincial govt. Sad that US don't already have that.

Yep - definitely beneficial for parents to be with their newborns for as long as possible. That being said - if this is such a good idea, why is a government mandate needed to make it happen?

I believe Mr. Walsh needs to question his own moral upbringing. Where was someone to teach him about mutual respect? And about the negative effects of bigotry and making false assumptions about others?
Mr Walsh's statements say far more about himself, than they do about anyone else.

My high school baseball player carries tampons in his backpack, because "Half of my friends have vagina issues every month. Shitty, and out of their control. So why be a dick about it? Bonus, they also come in handy if one of us wears a ball to the face at practice. Two for one." 😂

My son carried his favorite pillow case everywhere up until the age of 5. When he started full time school I let him put it in his book bag for 'safe keeping'.
Kids need comfort and grow out of things when they're good and ready.
There are no true and hardened parenting tricks except the usual:
Love them unconditionally
Care for their needs
No abuse of any kind.
Respect your little human.
I'm sure there are many others but that's a good start to parenting 101.
04/22/2017 at 21:22
Despite the fact that this article is "old news", it should never have made the "news". If a child needs comforting with a pacifier, a teddy, etc., let them be. They won't be sucking on a pacifier when they are a teen. If they are, then there's reason to be concerned. And even then, it's not our business.
