To Individuals Who Target People With Special Needs For Amusement

This is to individuals who target people with special needs for amusement.


Young men are targeting our neighbour, who has special needs, on a nightly basis for their own amusements.  These young men come in multiple cars hurling abuse and eggs at my neighbour no matter what time it is.

You might think it is harmless and funny.  What happens when someone gets hurt?  I bet it won’t be so funny then.

What is wrong with you?

Is your life that pathetic, that instead of doing something enjoyable, you think that you are tough targeting individuals with special needs for your amusement?  You are a great catch – NOT.

As a society, we need to stamp out this behaviour.  It is the individuals who target people with special needs who need desperate help.





Disciplining Children Through Waterboarding

Goodness I have heard it all tonight on a facebook group.  A person put up a post to get people’s opinion about disciplining children through waterboarding.

Water boarding as it is currently described involves strapping a person to an inclined board, with his feet raised and his head lowered. The interrogators bind the person’s arms and legs so he can’t move at all, and they cover his face. In some descriptions, the person is gagged, and some sort of cloth covers his nose and mouth; in others, his face is wrapped in cellophane. The interrogator then repeatedly pours water onto the person’s face. Depending on the exact setup, the water may or may not actually get into the person’s mouth and nose; but the physical experience of being underneath a wave of water seems to be secondary to the psychological experience. The person’s mind believes he is drowning, and his gag reflex kicks in as if he were choking on all that water falling on his face.”  Now this method is used for interrogation.

But what has shocked me is that parent’s push their children’s head under water as a discipline method and are ok about it.  Why do they not hear alarm bells going off?

Do you know anyone who uses this method as this is child abuse?


Positive Conscious thoughts that focus on your desires, invites the opportunities required, bringing them into your reality.

Listen to your Gut As Parents Know Their Child Best | Talking Thursday

Fourth April 2013 talking topic is:

When have you as a parent listened to your gut about something with your child and found out your gut was right?

I recent example for my own family is that Em has only been fully toilet since January and over the last couple of months we noticed that she was having trouble urinating.  It came to head with a case of acute fluid retention and we were about to be rushed to an emergency department but thank god Em managed to urinate to ease the pain.  The GP ran tests and no infection was found.  So The GP did another follow up test to make sure it was still clear.

But the trouble did not finish there and she gave us a lot of behavioural issues of not wanting to go to the toilet and also looking very strained when trying to urinate.  I brought the issue up with the OT and she felt there was an issue.  I ended up making another appointment with the GP and he ran an ultrasound because I was concerned and just wanted to make sure that it was not behavioural issues (Emma has autism and severe sensory processing disorder).  The did find something mild and we are in the process of follow up appointments.

As a parent you know your child best and if something is not right especially over time it is important to get the right help.  It is really hard because Drs can make you feel like an idiot but honestly when you get the right one you might get the right answers.  Just do not give up!

I would love you to share your examples of when your gut instinct has been right when it comes to your children.
