I love the idea of a more preventative style approach, unfortunately this article says only this and doesn’t provide any more information or details on what this looks like. I would have loved to hear about this new technology, or hear a little about what perpetrators believe is a contributing reason they offend. This could have been a really interesting informative article…maybe we could get a follow up article with some actual information.

The whole lawsuit is absolute bunk and a complete grab for money but hey…this guy and a smart lawyer have both seen a chance to make some serious cash and have taken it. Can’t blame them, it’s the way our legal system was created

My husband and I sleep in separate bedrooms. It started after my first child and he was still working so would sleep separately to get a good sleep. And even after both kids we’re both shift workers, I’m a really light sleeper and I’m also a snorer so we just continued. We still have a regular sex life and I honestly can’t see him ever moving back in. I think the whole sleeping together thing was just something created by poverty and necessity in olden days, I’m certainly never ashamed to tell anyone

I think it’s crazy, if you are an essential worker then you can put your kid in daycare. working from home and making an income is essential work and after doing 2 weeks quarantine with a 2 and 4 year old I know there’s no way you can truly work from home if your kids are there. Send you child in with your head held high…if anyone asks you just say you. Are. Working…period.

@cam hahahaha it’s literally just a matter of time isn’t it until every participant is on IG showing off their new set of veneers

And yet they’re happy to fill sports stadiums with tens of thousands of fans and bring over international arrivals to shoot tv shows while small business owners lose their livelihoods and families lose their sanity being locked inside. I would be so much happier to follow these rules if it wasn’t for the blatant hypocrisy and double standards that allow the rich and famous to continue working and living as they please while everyone else tries to do the right thing

It’s absolutely related to social media. These kids don’t care about fancy parties it’s just the parents wanting IG likes.

My son didn’t even have a party until he was 4 and old enough to say who he wanted to invite. We held it at the park, he had a cheesecake shop cake and the kids ate chips and lollies and had an amazing time and not a FB or insta worthy photo in sight. 
It’s so sad that the pressures of keeping up social media appearances are distracting parents from reality and what truly matters to kids.

So to summarize this person had appendicitis and gallstones whilst on keto but it had absolutely nothing to do with her being on keto

I care as much about the lives of these strangers as I did before I ever read this story.

My husband and I have slept in separate bedrooms since my 4 year old was born. He’s a shift worker, I’m a snorer and I’m also an incredibly light sleeper now. We have sex just as much as we did in the same bed and I think our relationship is so much better without the resentment attached to different sleeping times/patterns.

I love the medik8 range. It’s the first time I’ve spent real money on skincare, but I’m 36 and all I wear during the day now is sunscreen and an eyebrow pencil thanks to the effects of their products. I use the advanced night restore and retinol at night and their day cream with vitamin C. So simple and so effective

I’m not sure if not expecting your kids to help out is ‘radical’ I do agree that we need to lower our expectations of a pristine household, but you are doing your children zero favours by not expecting them to help out. One day they will be adults and will live with other adults who may not be as happy to take on the brunt of the housework with zero complaint

I honestly believe any person with a public IG account should be banned from posting pics and videos of their kids. You have no idea what kind of psychos are out there and plus your kids can’t consent to you documenting their every waking moment for the public to see. So sick of seeing people using their kids to build instafame

@ella27 they’re not mentioning it casually. They’re saying it’s heavy stuff so start light and build up tolerance and use a sunscreen to further avoid irritation.

So basically...walk more, but also sit down and read more, and sleep more

And spend more time alone but also spend more time with your friends. 
This is the biggest no sense filler article I think I’ve ever read lol

I actually think it’s more important for us to raise kids who know what their sex is and teach them that they can do/be anything regardless of that. It’s the same as the whole ‘colourblind’ arguement around race. Men and women exist, it’s a biological fact. Instead of making my son hide the fact he’s a boy, I let him wear what he wants, play with whoever he wants and if he loves another man down the track then that’s perfectly fine too. And I will raise him to understand that girls can play with and be whatever they want to as well. Stamping out the reality of someone’s sex is like throwing out the baby with the bath water

Can we talk about all the patriarchal ‘my sister’ ‘my daughter’ bullshit. These women are not your property and they have names...please use them

I was thinking about using a C & K kindy for my boy’s kindergarten year but the emphasis this story has placed on forcing sharing has made me reconsider. I think anyone who has current early childhood knowledge knows that this concept of making our children share ie forcing them to give up what they have because another child wants it is outdated and unfair. Children are going to learn to share naturally without us projecting our needs for adult like ‘manners and social skills’ onto them.
