New parenting program to help families of people with a disability cope

New parenting program to help families of people with a disability cope
News from ABC Local:

ELEANOR HALL: Now to a parenting support program for parents of children with disabilities which is being trialled along Australia’s east coast.

The Stepping Stones Triple P Project is funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council.

But it is separate from the Federal Government? National Disability Insurance Scheme, which is focussed on the needs of the person with a disability.

As Nance Haxton reports.

NANCE HAXTON: Louise Kelly lives in inner city Brisbane with her husband and two children – four-year-old Trixie and six-year-old Freddie, who has autism, ADHD and epilepsy. Freddie cannot speak and has difficulty communicating, leading to him expressing his frustration in many ways.

Louise has a range of therapists who help with Freddie’s needs, but says parents and siblings often need support too.

LOUISE KELLY: I guess our major difficulty was overcoming our grief and understanding that we were working with our beautiful son to help him achieve the best he possibly can. Some of those difficult behaviours still persist that we’re working on: such as running away from us; inability to be able to see danger, his constant need for supervision, one-on-one, 24 hours a day.

Anything to keep us from feeling isolated and being able to join groups of other people having fun – or have people to our…………… continues on ABC Local

kiwi steps up to parenting
News from Stuff.co.nz:

SUPPLIED

BIG SQUEEZE: A kiwi egg being cared for. The eggs are one of the largest laid by any bird in the world, relative to body size.

A young male kiwi is winning fans with his caring attitude and baby-rearing skills.

With spring approaching kiwi are incubating eggs laid 10 to 15 days ago at Pukaha-Mt Bruce National Wildlife Centre, 15 minutes drive north of Masterton.

Leading the way is the un-romantically named but domestically-gifted MB23, a male North Island brown kiwi, who is incubating at least one egg laid by his partner.

The female’s identity is unknown at this stage; but although the two will probably mate for life, according to Pukaha general manager Helen Tickner, she is leaving the child rearing to her mate.

“She’s done a runner… that’s her bit done, those boys are well-trained.”

North Island brown kiwi males always incubate the eggs, Ms Tickner said, which was only fair as the females laid one of the largest eggs relative to bodyweight of any bird species in the world.

The Centre’s 40 volunteers and three staff from the Department of Conservation’s captive breeding programme were excited about the development, she said.

Parenting tips for working moms
News from SheKnows.com:

More moms than ever are working these days. And unfortunately, working takes you away from your family and can lead to feelings of guilt. Toss that guilt and stress aside! You are working because you care about your kids, and just because you work doesn’t mean you can’t have a strong, loving bond with your children.

Remember that quality matters

You might not have as many hours in the day with your kids as other moms do, but that doesn’t mean you can’t connect with your children in a positive, meaningful way. Remember that it’s quality (not quantity) that counts.

  • Unplug. Seriously — turn off your phone, step away from your computer and enjoy your evenings with your kids. Giving your child your full attention is very important for bonding.
  • Hug. Every child, no matter how old, needs a mama’s touch. Whether you have toddlers, teens or kids in between, spend some time every day getting close.
  • Listen. Let your kids do the talking when you are with them. Whether your teen is venting about a teacher at school or your preschooler is telling you about dragons and dinosaurs, take the time to listen.

Updated yesterday at 10:43 AM

LONDON—It’s Day One of parenting for Prince William and Kate. After the excitement and fatigue and joy of childbirth—emotions shared with a nation—the young couple is expected to bring the prince home Tuesday.

It is a daunting moment for any young couple, even one with as much support as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The infant’s name—and what he looks like—remain a royal mystery. And as he begins a long journey expected to see him someday become a king, Britons, and supporters from around the world, have been joining the royal family in celebration.

Kensington Palace announced that the Duchess of Cambridge had given birth to the 8 pound, 6 ounce (3.8 kilogram) baby boy at 4:24 p.m. Monday, triggering an impromptu party outside Buckingham Palace and in front of the hospital where Kate gave birth.

Tourists and well-wishers were back Tuesday, lining up outside the gates to…………… continues on KHOU

5 Examples of Terrible Parenting
News from ABC News:

Parents, you guys. Amiright? Ugh. They’re always doing things like raising you and counting to three slowly in public and putting up Craigslist ads hunting down a sugar baby for your sexual pleasure.

Yeah, a mom from Philadelphia posted a Craigslist ad on her Harvard-bound son’s behalf, searching for a woman to turn him from “high school nerd to cool college kid” by taking his virginity after a concert and then entering into a short-term sexual relationship with him in order to show him “different sex positions.” Mom, you are SUCH a pimp! LOLiterally. Also, that’s not what “sugar baby” means.

So, if that little fairytale didn’t gross you out enough, here are some other instances of really ungreat parenting. Take note, lest ye make the same mistakes involving guns, Nazis, and Lil’ Wayne.

Kids like being kids, study finds, perhaps thanks to parenting

Kids like being kids, study finds, perhaps thanks to parenting
News from Los Angeles Times:

Seven-year-old Hannah Thome munched on a chocolate cookie after getting home from cheerleading camp last week and mulled the question, brow furrowing over her wide blue eyes. Did she want to be older?

“No,” the Tustin youngster concluded. “I like being a kid. You get to do more things.”

Her mother remembers Tom Hanks wishing for adulthood in the 1988 film “Big” and remembers wishing for the same. But childhood has changed a lot since then. And that might be changing how kids think about it.

Kids today are increasingly likely to say they like being kids, a survey shows. A whopping 85% of children ages 8 to 14 agreed that “I like being my age,” television network

Kentucky Orders End to Parenting Column, Says Columnist Not State-Licensed …
News from ABC News:

A parenting advice columnist is suing the Kentucky Board of Examiners of Psychology, alleging that the board is trying to censor his writing.

“I hold very heretical views when it comes to my profession,” John Kirk Rosemond, 65, of Gastonia, N.C., told ABC News. “I think it has caused a lot of problems in child-rearing. But I’m very open about it. I talk about it. That doesn’t sit well with some people.”

Rosemond is the author of a popular parenting advice column that is syndicated nationwide. A psychologist licensed to practice in North Carolina, Rosemond answers questions about child-rearing from parents who submit their questions online. His column appears in more than 200 newspapers across the country, according to a lawsuit he filed on Tuesday.

On May 7, 2013, the Kentucky Board of Examiners of Psychology sent Rosemond a letter asking him to cease and desist his columns because the advice he gave a parent on how to handle a teenager constituted the “practice of psychology,” which he is not licensed to practice in Kentucky.

“The article … was a psychological service to the general public, which constituted the practice of psychology. … No person may engage in the practice of psychology unless licensed by the Board…” read the letter, obtained by ABC News.

Is Kate Middleton Trying to Fake Us Out?

By Kylie McConville for The Bump.com

Getty Images / The BumpThere’s a royal baby on the way and though the Palace’s tight-lipped stance has left too much to the imagination, we know that Kate Middleton will deliver – and soon (she’s days past her due date!).

As details continue to trickle out (some totally false, while others carry a little bit of weight behind them), it’s hard to keep up exactly what we can expect from the Duchess’ grand delivery. Will Kate deliver at Lindo, like she’s expected to or will she sneak out of London to give birth somewhere closer to her parents? Do they really know baby’s gender? Have they picked a name?

DailyDirt: Parenting Tips
News from Techdirt:

Parents apparently have no idea how to raise children. Parenting is tough, but no worries, there’s always the unsolicited advice from family and strangers about what they think is best for children, and there are tons of parenting books available that may or may not help. There’s also no shortage of contradictory studies out there that just leave parents utterly confused. Here are just a few recent findings on what’s supposedly good or bad for kids. Remember correlation isn’t causation, etc, etc.

  • Young children need regular bedtimes, otherwise it can have a negative effect on their cognitive development. Kids who had irregular bedtimes at the age of 3 — a crucial age for mental development — scored lower on reading, math, and spatial awareness tests. [url]
