Invisible Disabilities

“I received my first handicap car permit at the age of 27.”—Me I periodically express this not to elicit sympathy from others. My intention is to remind myself that:   a.)

Talking to Children about SEX

Parent 1: So have you talked to Jamie about the sex? Parent 2: Girl, of course not! I do not want her to get any ideas and plus she's only twelve! Parent 1: Well, I have been talking to Kennedy about sex. I started after she came home from school telling me what she saw
