My son is black and has autism, and I'm terrified
Tue Dec 30, 2014
In reply to:Jarhead-2884562 #4.5 It's amazing how people will write the most heinous, nasty stuff when they are anonymous. I am not. I can think of something appropriate to replace Jar in the above comment. I teach children with autism and am the special ed expert at about.com. I h …
Breast cancer survivor's post about why she didn't breast-feed goes viral
Wed Oct 15, 2014
I was unable to breastfeed because I was born without milk ducts. Very rare, but it happens. I never knew until I became pregnant. During pregnancy my breasts never grew larger (first clue) and after giving birth there was no leakage. An ultrasound confirmed the fact - no milk ducts. The lactation s …
Mom creates 'Ignore No More' app to get teens to return calls
Mon Aug 18, 2014
As the parent of two now young adult sons, we had one rule when they were teens... "As long as I pay for your phone, you will answer my calls or I will take your phone. Period" Neither one tested us, because we never threatened, we followed-thru. But then again, we rarely called them. If they were l …
'I'll push you': Man pushes wheelchair-bound friend 500 miles through Pyrenees mountains
Sat Aug 2, 2014
In reply to: Sean DeYoung #1 To get attention?... you sir are an ignorant, self-centered prig. It's called redefining your life and friendship. But, I doubt you have any friends, so you couldn't possibly know about friendship.
Some dads are just saying no, thanks, to career opportunities
Sun Jun 15, 2014
It really depends on your occupation. I don't know much about the corporate atmosphere, but my husband worked just 10 hours a week as a hospital chaplain when our now 24-year-old triplets were young. I was a university administrator and made much more money, so keeping my job was a no brainer. (plus …
Helen Mirren calls marriage 'voluntary imprisonment,' admits 'I never felt the need for a child'
Fri May 30, 2014
In reply to: WalkWithMeInHell #1 I think she looks great! Nose candy in the 80s? What a rude and callous comment. You know this how?
Mastectomy 'monokini' swimwear helps breast cancer survivors feel beautiful
Tue May 27, 2014
I'm a bilateral mastectomy breast cancer survivor. I am very comfortable with my boob-less body. I work out at the gym and run outdoors in a tank top without a bra/prosthesis, and I am very comfortable with my flat chest. When I dress up, I do like having a feminine shape, so I wear my prosthesis. T …
Back to sleep, and back off: Classes teach grandparents new rules of raising kids
Mon May 5, 2014
Well, I have to say... I've never read such a load of horse pucky in my life. The author makes it sound like we were total and complete idiots raising our children. Our sons are 22 and 24, neither are married, nor in a committed relationship (call me crazy, but I'm kind of old fashioned), so grandch …
She did it! Natalie Morales finishes Boston Marathon
Mon Apr 21, 2014
In reply to: Dave Shaffer #4 So you prefer to sit on your duff and not do a freakin' thing? Yep, that's about right. Ms. Morales is raising awareness, raising money and helping others while you sit on your big fat bum and do NOTHING!
