Blogger Power: Project to Safeguard the Web for our Children

I was tagged by MotheringTimes for the following campaign:

 

 

The project Blogger Power is a campaign to safeguard the Internet for children against pornography. Do visit the site for more details about this project. This is a chance for blogger’s to unite for a good cause. Calling all blogger’s to Blogger’s Unite and Help Spread the word to protect our children from pornography on the Internet.
If you are a blogger, post the common sense request to all the “adult site” webmasters on your site. You can either write your own article about it, or simply copy-paste the following letter:

A Request To All Webmasters Of Adult Sites:
“Please require a password-protected login before allowing even free access to explicit adult content. We understand that selling porn is your business and we respect your right to make a legal living. But understand our legitimate concerns and work with us. You already have the “warning adult content” on your websites. Yet kids, who are not legal customers of your product, ignore the warning. So to prevent them from having direct access to explicit images, texts and sounds, the simplest way is to have a password-protected login. No more “free tours” before a visitor supplies basic information.”

The Parenting Network is moving

I am sad to say that the parenting Network is moving to a different address. I am in the middle of uploading all the content from here to the new site. The neww address is www.familysupportforum.com.

You can start commenting and posting at the new site, but you can still do so here, but there will be no new content as I am trying to make The Family Support Forum a success.

Thank you all so much for your comments and I look forward to hearing from you at the new site. I will see you there!!

Breastfeeding Supplements: How to Wean Your Baby Off

9 12 2006

It has been 8 months and counting since I have been breastfeeding my daughter. I am very proud of myself for that! I continue to nurse her until she is a year or maybe a little longer. When it comes down to weaning, I hope the process is a smooth one. Here is an article I found about trying to wean formula out of the breastfeeding diet. I am not against formula in any way, but if you had to supplement, this is a good article to read.

If you have had significant breastfeeding problems — this can include difficulty getting the baby to latch or breastfeed effectively or severely sore nipples, as well as having a slow gaining baby or a baby that, when a preemie, was given bottles — you might find yourself in a situation where you are both breastfeeding and supplementing with bottles of expressed breast milk or formula. For many mothers, this falls short of their original goal to exclusively breastfeed in order to provide the optimum nutrition and immune system boost that direct breastfeeding affords. If you are currently providing breastfeeding supplements to your baby and would like to work toward your goal to breastfeed, it’s encouraging to know that it’s entirely possible to achieve.

Babies found in freezer

8 12 2006

I was watching the news last night and came across something disturbing. There were 3 frozen babies found in a freezer. The woman who lived there just died right after Thanksgiving.

This story came out of Columbia. Tn.

The frozen bodies of three dead babies were found in a freezer Thursday in the apartment of a 35-year-old Columbia woman who died recently, according to the Columbia Police Department.

A family member of Tracy Howard found the bodies, some of which may be fetuses, when cleaning out Howard’s apartment. The age and cause of death of the babies is unknown.

Howard died on Nov. 28, and an initial autopsy suggests it was from natural causes.

An autopsy on the babies was scheduled for Thursday, though no results have been released.

Fast food in children’s hospitals a bad lesson

7 12 2006

A very interesting article worth reading…

CHICAGO (Reuters) – Fast food outlets are common inside U.S. children’s hospitals, leading more patients to consume hamburgers and fries and encouraging them to view the fare as healthier than it probably is, a study said on Monday.

Of 200 hospitals with pediatric residency programs surveyed, 59 had fast-food restaurants on site, said the report published in Pediatrics, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

More than half the patients or family members visiting hospitals with fast food outlets said they ate fast food the day they were surveyed, which was four times the rate among people at hospitals without outlets, the survey of 386 people found.

McDonald’s, which does provide financial support to some of the hospitals surveyed and operates several homes for ill children, was the prevalent restaurant in hospitals studied.
