Help Children in the Foster Care System

Children of all ages and backgrounds are placed into the foster care system every day for a variety of reasons. The one thing that they all have in common is that their lives have been significantly changed, and that can be frightening for many of them. Every child deserves to feel cared for and safe, and that’s why the role of foster parents is so important. However, there are also plenty of other things that you can do to help foster children in your community, even if you’ve decided that foster parenting or adoption isn’t right for you. Take a look at some of the ways you can make a difference in a child’s life below.

Look Into Mentoring

Foster children don’t generally have a lot of stability in their lives, so having a mentor that they can look forward to seeing and spending time with on a regular basis will serve to provide them with some consistency.

What is not true about destination wedding in Italy

Italy would be the destination of choice for many who would want to get married outside their country. The reasons are obvious. Italy is a placed with a landmark of history, beautiful culture, loving and friendly people and a center where the romantic atmosphere is exemplified.

With all of the above, no doubt it would be a good ground to solemnize a marriage. It is though disturbing that some people hold some myths about this legendary place for many reasons that are proven to not be true.

Here in this article, a look at some of those claims by people will be examined so you can get a true picture of what really holds in Italy if you intend having your destination wedding in Italy.

Italy is expensive for such venture

Italy may boast of the popular brands in fashion and designs known around the world, but this does not translate to making the wedding in Italy expensive to execute. Yes, Italy is known for luxury and glamor, yet, you can have your wedding done with less expense than you would do locally.

Safety Hazards in the Household

Accidents can happen in an instant. While most household hazards are commonly known and precautions are common sense; there are hazards that need extra precautions to protect the children in your home.

**Each year over 569 children die from strangulation, suffocation, and entrapment in household appliances.

Foster homes must be especially aware of hazards in the home; therefore, we have compiled a list of household hazards not always on our radar and ways to keep the children in your home safe.

1. Stove: Stove knobs and oven doors are a temptation for curious little ones learning to tune fine motor skills and are easily turned or opened. Safety locks designed specifically for stoves can prevent a child from climbing into the oven causing possible suffocation or being burned. (Cost range from $5 to $25)
2. Dishwasher: Like the stove; dishwasher doors are easily opened and a child can climb into if not locked when not in use.)
3. Toy chests: Like stoves and dishwashers, not having safety latches installed to prevent the lid from closing on toy chests can be very dangerous, easily trapping a small child inside.
4. Cords or wires: Long cords present a tripping or choking hazard. A small child

The easy to your banquet hall

1. Get a headcount
Headcounts are important to have, from the starting point. It would all depend on the crowd and who you want the transport for. This is why, when you send out the invites, ask your attendees to confirm if they want to be picked and dropped.

2. Manage the out-of-towners
From day one, you would have guests and relatives and friends pouring in to help with the wedding and to attend it, from out of town. They would or wouldn’t know the city or town too well, which is why, it would be up to you to handle transportation for them. Right from picking them up from the airport or train stations or the bus depots, to bringing them to the wedding venue.

3.Advance booking saves the day
A good one month in hand is what you need to have when booking for wedding transportation, especially during the wedding season. Formal vehicles such as cars, and buses would always be in high demand.

4. Communication is the key
You need to get your word out to the attendees to let them know how they would be picked up and where or when. Spread the word through email and The not-so-tech-savvy

Do You Need a Wedding Planner

Now that you have found a perfect life partner, it is time for the celebrations to begin! A wedding isn’t a simple event that can be done in one single day. It requires meticulous planning which means you need to allot a lot of time for it. Well, speaking about time, that is one thing that most people lack today. A busy and thriving career coupled with other important daily tasks will leave you exhausted at the end of the day. So, where would you find time to prepare for the wedding? Then, the right thing to do is to engage a wedding planner.

Why do you need a wedding planner? The answers are here!

Nobody to help

Do have a whole bunch of family and friends to help you? No? Then, don’t waste time thinking how to go about with your wedding when you have no volunteers to take up the tasks.

Save money

Save money! Yes, you read it right! Did you know that hiring an event planner could actually save you a lot of money? Want to know how? Here it is. They work in close tandem with the vendors that would be supplying decorations, flowers, food, and other stuff. They have

Individuation and Crying Over The Wonder Woman Trailer

Ok, lets get the trailer out of the way. Because this isn’t a postcard about feminism, this is a postcard about masculinism. And the fact that spellcheck doesn’t even recognise it as a word goes a long way to making my point. But first, in order to really make my point, I need to vent about that trailer. So strap yourselves in for a couple of paragraphs, because I’m not feeling warm and fuzzy about it.

I can’t tell you how excited I was about that movie. The Lasso of Truth and indestructible Bracelets of Submission for heaven’s sake. How much material for awesomeness do you need? And then the trailer began, and within a minute my heart was sinking as I watched yet another portrayal of a woman’s power being defined by her capacity to reject her femininity, embody masculine energy and to wear a sexy outfit as she uses destructive weapons to fight and brutalize men. Now excuse me while I get out my soapbox and megaphone, because I need to yell this part. A person’s power does not come from diminishing the value or power of the opposite sex, making them redundant, or from putting them in their

Grow Old in Style

Growing old is too often associated with loss, loss of friends and family, loss of independence and loss of style. To allow age to define your lifestyle and your happiness would be an extremely defeatist and unchallenging attitude to have. Growing old should be a vibrant experience, a time that all of your previous living has been leading up to. Your wisdom and experience should be a factor in your everyday decisions, how you act, how you treat people, how you dress and essentially how you live your life. Growing old in style is all about acceptance, accepting that life is changing, that loss will happen and that at times, help from others will be needed. If you can draw together all of your experience and learn to accept everything in your path, then you will most certainly live a vibrant and colourful life.

Dress to impress:

There are no real guides and confinements to what anybody should wear. The only golden rule to dressing yourself when you get older is to wear what makes you feel good. Whether that we a knitted jumper or a cocktail dress. Age should not make you shrink away from making a statement or wearing something

Triggered and What You Can Do

Getting your “buttons” pushed or getting “triggered” is an opportunity to heal and grow. The more hurts we’ve endured and the weaker our boundaries, the more reactive we are to people and events. Our triggers – our buttons – are our wounds. Codependents are off the charts when it comes to reacting to others’ feelings, needs, problems, opinions, wants, and more. When we react, we permit our insides to be taken over by someone or something outside of us. There’s no filter or boundary. We’re pulled off center and might start thinking about that person or about what might happen in the future. Negative reactions easily escalate hurt feelings and conflict. Often, however, we’re really reacting to someone from our past.

A wise, apropos Al-Anon slogan is “Q-Tip,” – “Quit Taking It Personally.” Interpreting someone else’s words or actions to be a comment about us is taking another person’s feelings personally. We might react with guilt or defensiveness, because we assume we’re the cause of someone else’s negative emotion or problem. We have just taken on the other person’s problem or shame when they shame or blame us. Our peace of mind and self-esteem now resides with someone else.

Foster Care Placements

Numerous children continue to enter the foster care system every day, each with a different background and unique situation.

Emergency foster families must always be prepared to provide food, shelter, clothing, and other necessities as soon as they are called upon as well as be able to handle the trauma a child experiences from suddenly being taken away from their parents.
