It's only October and already my school-aged son is selling three different products for public school and Beavers.

I purchased magazine subscriptions online for myself, my… Continue

Although this is written mostly from my perspective, I write this entry with the permission of my beautiful sister Amy who is a true warrior and survivor.
I remember the day last February that my sister called me.
I was sitting in my car in the parking lot at the community college where I was taking classes. My phone range, and on the other end of the line was my sister, barely able to speak. She was in tears after leaving her general practitioner's office and on her way… Continue

I like to end my weeks on a positive note for my readers, but that's not going to happen today. I just read an article about Isabel Loeffler, an eight-year-old autistic girl who spent three hours isolated in a glorified closet, a "time out" room, at school. Read the full story here.
There's also this story about Jose Gabriel, a three-year-old autistic boy who was left alone on a school bus for more than six hours. He evidently rode the bus to school and was still sitting in the back… Continue

But then, Ms Maple Leaf went home, recalled the sights, and gave the whole thing some serious thought.
She considered the large elephants in shackles, about llamas, camels,… Continue
