Parents Guide to Autism: True Life Story, Tips and More!

My dear sweet little guy was “sunny-side up” and turned around, so I was scheduled for a C-Section on August 10, 2004 in the morning. They had estimated a few weeks too early and my son was taken to NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) and hooked up to all sorts of machines and a life support machine was waiting nearby.

His lungs weren’t fully developed yet. He stayed in the NICU for about three weeks. There were complications of him not breathing or he would stop breathing when he would be fed.

Finally I was able to bring him home and then the adventure of Nick started!

After I brought Nick home from the hospital, he started progressing as any normal child would. He began speaking with words like, “mama”, “dada”, “kitty” (we have two cats).
He started to first roll around and then shortly thereafter he began to crawl. He loved to eat and whenever he would hear his spoon scrape the bottom of the jar, he would get upset and cry because he knew there would be no more food until his next feeding………………………………

Nick was progressing as a normal baby and child would. The summer of 2006, I started noticing changes in him. He wasn’t smiling as much anymore, he had stopped talking and “jibber jabbering”, he wasn’t crawling or beginning to walk anymore. It was as if everything he had learned, began to go in reverse.

When I took him to get his shots in October, I asked his pediatrician, who had been with him since his birth, if she noticed in changes in him. She observed him for a while and informed me that something doesn’t look like it’s “connecting right” in his head. She wrote a referral for Nick to get evaluated at Children’s Hospital.

An appointment was made in the Developmental Psychiatric Department in mid-November.

My husband and I both were there. Nick was evaluated for about three to four hours. Finally, when the testing was over, we walked into the doctor’s office. She informed us that she had given Nick a series of tests and situations.

At his age he should be walking, talking, interested in coloring, puzzles, playing with toys the correct way, like normal kids do. He was doing none of that. She also assessed that he was hyperactive and could not focus on one thing for too long. He was also tested for hearing and vision.

Her assessment was that he had perfect hearing and vision, but he also had ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder).

I was not familiar with any of these terms. The doctor then went into details about each disorder. I was trying hard to listen and pay attention to what she was saying and I got most of it. It was hard when a doctor tells you that your child suffers from life long disorders. Your mind tends to wander and wonder if your child will ever be “normal” again.

How Domestic Violence Changed My Life Forever: And How an Amazing Dog Helped Me Thru It

In the beginning, when Scots would begin to argue and fight with me, for a while he would hide behind and underneath furniture and whine and cry. As he got older though, things changed. It went from beating up on me, to taking his rage out on Krobalz as well.

It went from yelling and threatening, to actually hitting him, and even sometimes kicking him. I tried to stop it, but when I would get involved, it got worse for the both of us. As Krobalz turned a year old, then two, he began to stick up for himself. At first, it was just growling and showing his teeth, but then he began snipping.

Things had gotten so bad at one point, that I was determined I was out, and never going to look back. I packed a basket, and jumped in the car. Close to my heels, was Krobalz, making sure that he wasn’t left behind.

We drove to Kentucky, before the lack of gas made me pull over. In the heat of the moment, I forgot that I was a day away from my paycheck. That night, it dropped down very cold. I had to stay put for over a day to wait for my paycheck to be directly deposited, but it was so cold that at first, my fingers turned bright red.

I tried to use what little change I had to buy a cup of coffee, but I couldn’t pay the woman because my fingers were unable to move. I would have turned the heater on in the car to keep warm, but because I didn’t have any gas, turning the car on was out of the question.




Downside of Love: Surviving a Break Up

Most of us have all gone through a break-up at least once in our lives. For those who haven’t, you aren’t missing much. The hurt, the regret, the sadness and the feeling of failure are just some things that go along with breaking up a relationship.
Sometimes we see it coming and other times, it is dropped on us like a nuclear bomb. Well, not that drastic, but if you’re the one it’s dropped on, it certainly feels like that world is coming to an end!
Well, don’t fret! The good news is, your world is not coming to an end, in fact there have been millions of people over the centuries who have survived break-ups and moved on to new and better relationships! And guess what? You can too!
Maybe you got that call from your significant other that you “need to talk”, or your partner has cheated on you and fell in love with someone else or things just didn’t work out well with you both and it was a mutual break-up. Even if it’s a mutual break-up on both your ends, the hurt and sad feelings are still there. Because, no matter what, you shared a part of your life with this person and feelings were there, even if they are not there now. You did care for each other at one time or another and maybe you still do. Every situation is different.
No matter what the reason for breaking up was and how your relationship ended, well or bad, the feelings after a break-up are pretty much the one and the same. There is always that feeling of sadness, loss, failure, regret, blame, etc… So many emotions to deal with!
And then there’s the feeling of if you are ever going to meet a new person and if you are ever going to fall in love again. Well, as the saying goes, “When you meet that one person that you spend the rest of your life with, you understand why all the other relationships didn’t work out.” It is so true too!
I was in a relationship for a long time with someone. We had future plans together, talked about all the things we were going to do, and we thought we were soul mates and made for each other. Then one day, I got the message in an e-mail. It was a Dear Jane e-mail letter stating that he had fell out of love with me.

Where to Send Your Child: Private, Public or Home School? Volume 1

As a parent you wonder how you will pick the best school for your child to attend?

You have three choices as a parent; public, private or home schooling. Even if you are paying tuition for a school, the deciding factors are always important.

In Volume 1, I will go over the three types of schools, public, private and home school. I will break them down into sub-categories and explain each one to you and then go over the pros and cons of each type of school. Hopefully this information will help you in deciding what type of school you want to send your child to.

If you’re determined to have someone else teach your child, then the age long debate of private school or public school will cross your mind on more than one occasion. So many factors come into play when making this decision. One of them being finances. That is, your financial situation. Then of course deciding on what is best for your child.

Some wonder how can we possibly compare two things that are so different? It’s like comparing night and day or oranges and apples. How can we compare two different things that are so obviously not held to the same standards?

I went to private Catholic school for my years of education up until the ninth grade. My first eight years were a co-ed private Catholic school, then I attended an all-girls private Catholic school, then I went on to a public co-ed high school. I’ve seen the differences in the amount of education that is emphasized. When it comes down to it, you get what you pay for.

It’s like buying a more expensive car. It looks better, runs better and is sharper and probably has more whistles and bells on it. But, if you go the economical way and buy a car that is not so expensive, it will still get you places where you want to go.

Well, it all depends on how you go about doing it though. There are many public schools out there that offer the same kind of education that a private school would. Take into consideration the schools that offer honors courses or advanced placement courses. A lot of public high schools offer college prep courses. It depends on how serious you and your child will be taking their education and not just “go through the system” to get it over and done with. This is your child’s future you are talking about and it should mean the world to you.

The Tree That Wood Be: Emotions

“Ugh!!” Scarlet tweeted in frustration at her top hat nest.

“What is wrong Scarlet?” Ashby asked her.

“This straw will not stay where it is supposed to stay! It is so frustrating!” Scarlet tweeted loudly.

“You sound really frustrated. Maybe you should calm down and rest a little, then try it again.” Ashby said calmly. “We don’t need your emotions getting out of control, now.”

“Emotions?” Scarlet asked. “What are emotions?”

“Yes, emotions.” Ashby answered and continued, “Your feeling of frustration is an emotion. Different people feel different emotions at all times. Whether it’s calm and relaxed, happy, sad, angry, etc… like right now you are feeling frustrated. That is called an emotion and we deal with them every day of our lives… good and bad.”

“Really?” Scarlet tweeted, still having her feathers ruffled. “Tell me more about emotions Ashby.”

How to Start Your Own Business as a Narrator or Voice Over Actor: Fun Part Time Business Opportunity

Have you ever been told that you have a voice for acting? Being a voice actor or actress is very similar to being an actor, but there are some differences. When you are a voice actor, you act with your voice. Meaning, your emotions and fluctuations all are held within your voice as you speak and act your role or narrate a book.

The wonderful news of being a voice actor is that you can do it in your very own home! You can audition from home, record from home, edit from home and submit your recordings from home. Meaning, you can work in your pajamas and never have to leave the house to drive in traffic or go to a boring office! Those are just some of the rewards of voice acting.

So, how do you start your own voice acting business? Everything is almost the same as starting any business. If you haven’t had voice training, you need to brush up on your vocal skills; breathing exercises, keeping your voice clear, voice fluctuation, knowing where to pause, etc… You can even take voice acting classes if needed or you can look on the internet and see what books you can order to help you with your voice acting.

How to Survive When the Government Takes Your Kids: Written By a Woman Who Lost Her Kids and Survived, Barely

Everything was going fine, until February 13th 2008. I woke up at 7am, before everyone. I checked on the kids, they were still sleeping, and then I made the mistake that I will regret for the rest of my life. I laid back on the couch and fell asleep… just for a minute. My cousin always came over at 8am, because her son was the same age as Zachariah, and her daughter was the same age as Sarah, but that morning, her son fell down the stairs at her house, and broke his arm, so she didn’t come and wake me up. What woke me up was police pounding on my door.  
I opened it, and they said: 
“Where’s your daughter.” I said: 
“She’s upstairs sleeping, why?”  
They said, can we see?  
So we ran upstairs. The first thing I saw was Zachariah, on his bed crying, saying: 
“Yi Ya threw sissy out the window mommy!!”  
Elijah was hiding behind his brother. I went into my daughter’s room, and found the entire window was gone, there was only a hole in the wall. What I didn't know, and they didn't know when they did the home visit, was the walls were dry rotted.  
Elijah had gone into his sisters room, and hung on her window, and it had fallen in the snow (why I didn't hear it fall) he then (Thank God) threw all of her blankets out the window, and then threw her out. He didn't realize he would hurt her. She was okay… she walked away from it. Because of the fall, the neighbors saw it, and called 911.  
They rushed me to the helicopter. All I could hear was: 
“Major head injury.” I was crying the entire way, and I didn't have my glasses, so I couldn't see anything.  
I walked into the hospital, threw all of the news crew, and finally got to my daughter, who sat up and put her hand on her hip, bobbed her head, and said with all attitude:

A Girl's Guide on How to Attract, Keep and Maintain a Man: How to Get What you Want

There is an ever evolving secret which can help you to understand how you can attract a man and make him desire you in an instant. And I will share the secret with you! 
The law of attraction between men and women, as complex as it may seem, is pretty easy to clarify in a few sentences. 
Women are a lot more effortlessly attracted to a man who seems very healthy and very stress-free, Also, who has a high level of testosterone which will make him appear a lot more virile and chiseled, and has a defensive nature in him, which will make him a great mate and father and husband material. 
Men, on the other hand however, are a lot more easily drawn to women based a lot on their appearance and their demeanor. 
Keep in mind though, that is not all they are attracted to! 
For you to truly comprehend how to attract a man and how a man’s mind does work, you will need to get deeper into the notion of attraction from the man’s point of view. 
So, how do you attract a man in a way he can’t resist you? 
Well, a man might like a woman for many different reasons, but when it comes to sexual or physical attraction at first sight, a woman’s physical looks and her conduct matters more than anything in the world.

One Heart, Two Men: When a Woman Falls In Love With 2 Men

Several years ago, I remember watching a movie on one of those movie of the week channels about a girl who had fallen in love with two men. I never thought it would be possible to do that, until it happened to me personally. I mean, how much love could one person actually have for one man, let alone two? 
When I had met James, I hadn't been in a relationship in quite some time. Before James, I was in a long term committed relationship with Edward for eight years, but towards the end, I found out just how committed he was. He had been cheating on me for half our relationship. I guess I was the only one committed there. 
When I came home one night from work, we had been living together for about two years at that point, I could smell a ladies perfume… and it wasn't mine. I was supposed to work late that night, but had decided to call it a day and surprise Edward by coming home early because I had been putting in a lot of hours at work and I knew I had been neglecting him. Guess who got the surprise? 
Yep. Me. I walked into our bedroom where Edward and some girl were in our bed going at it with moaning and screams… the works. It was the last thing I suspected and you can say that I was shocked and stunned and well, speechless. Until the girl had her nerve to ask me, “Who the hell are you?” 
Her words set me off and I lunged towards her and began to pull her hair.  
Edward, with little loyalty there was left for me, pulled me off and told the girl to go home. She mumbled some words as Edward held me back and put her clothes on and as she was walking out the door she looked at me and grinned, “Maybe if you were pleasing him, he wouldn't have to go elsewhere.” It took every ounce of strength Edward had to hold me back. At that point, I would have probably gouged the girl’s eyes out. 
The skank left our apartment and Edward let me go. “What the hell Edward?!” I yelled at him in tears. More tears of anger than of sadness. I was pissed off and rightfully so. 
Edward just hung his head, as all guys do when they have been caught cheating. “I’m sorry Rachel.”  
“Sorry for what? That you were caught?” I yelled at him.

A Guy's Guide On How to Attract and Keep a Woman: Get the Girl You Want

Men are always trying to figure out what attracts women to men. Women typically make references to appearance, finances and power. Although those things might help, there are many more influential characteristics that will entice women.  
Overall, women are much more insightful and seek out disposition a lot more than just attractiveness. This is lucky for almost all men due to the fact that men are rough looking. Nevertheless, rough is sometimes a good attribute because it indicates power and dependability. It also shows that women are caring about a lot more vital things than just looks. So, if you look a bit rugged and rough, there is no problem with that, use it to your advantage. 
Using Your Body Language to Attract the Ladies 
According to several researches, ninety percent of communication with each other that is non-verbal, is basically done through body language. This is exactly why men must have decent body language skills if you are to attract a woman.  
Acquiring good body language skills is something that takes time and practice if it doesn't come naturally to you. For example, don’t slouch. Sit up straight enough to not look like a sloth, but not too straight that you look like a stiff stick. Keep your shoulders back as if a high wind was forcing you. Remember to keep your head up! If you are doing all of this right at this moment, chances are you are as anxious as a pole. The key to eye-catching body language is to be calm all the time, while having a very good stance. 
Keep Fit 
This shouldn't seem very difficult at all, but it seems to be. Keep your body in shape as well as your mind. If a woman sees that you can’t take care of yourself, how will you ever manage to take care of her? Run, jog or walk at least thirty minutes a day and if you really want to impress her with your muscles, lift some weights every day as well. Whether it be free weights or dumbbells, get those flabby muscles toned! 
Also, meditate to relax your mind. You won’t attract a woman being stressed out about work all the time. Show her that you are in control of your own elf and that you take stress with stride. This demonstrates strength and control. 
Your Social Status.....and much more!
