10 12 2006

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!!

Best Wishes,

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.

Woman kicked off plane for breast-feeding

15 11 2006

BURLINGTON, Vt. – A woman who claims she was kicked off an airplane because she was breast-feeding her baby has filed a complaint against two airlines, her attorney said.

When is it a crime to feed your child? Bottle or breast…it doesn’t matter. A mother should be able to feed her child no matter the age or whether or not she breast or bottle feeds. Shame on Delta Airlines! If I fly in the future, I surely will not be flying Delta…I am a mother who breast-fed all her children. I am currently nursing my 7 month old daughter. If anyone ever told me that I couldn’t nurse my baby, they would be getting an earful. The will be no way that I would accept a blanket that has been tossed back and forth from passenger to passenger to cover my child. Gross….Hello….GERMS!!! Not to mention that when you put a blanket over your baby’s head to nurse, it gets pretty hot. Would you like to eat with a blanket over your head? I don’t think so.

Anyways, the link to the article is below. Feel free to comment. I would love to hear all sides. No foul language please.
