Dancing with the Devil Who Lived Down the Street

 Dancing with the Devil Who Lived Down the Street This predator always liked to lead. I always wanted to be invisible after that first time it happened.  I wanted to watch you, but I didn’t want you to see what I was up to. I remember sitting in my parents’ living room, with my eyes shut down while my breathing became rather shallow. I didn’t want you to hear me either. I was always in my Sunday best – patent leather shoes with shiny buckles, poppy necklaces and frilly silly girly dresses that were held up by skinny little...

Autistic Child Graduates as Salutatorian–How He Did It

When Eric Duquette from Smithfield, Rhode Island came into this world, his parents were told he had Autism and would probably end up in an institution. His parents thought otherwise.  He didn’t speak a word until he was five. Undeterred, every day his mom and dad focused on teaching him just ten words, sometimes for up to eight hours a day.

You can kill two birds with one stone by setting aside some time for family physical activity, giving you quality time with each other and better fitness too. It can even help if you are having trouble seeing eye to eye with a teen. A 30 minute bike ride can take you both out of the house and maybe give you an opportunity to talk about something other than how much you are annoying each other.   It goes without saying that...

Dating Mommies and Daddies When You Have No Children

Dating Mechanic, In the past I have always had a firm rule of not dating men with baby mammas because it carries way too much drama that I just don’t want to deal with but recently I began dating a man who has a six year old. I’m having second thoughts about creating a relationship with him. The mom seems to be fine with the fact that I am dating her ex and wants us to “be friends”. She’s never asked me out for coffee or anything but it makes me feel uncomfortable to think of her in that...
