I think it is utterly childish to not want another person to care enough about your children to call them "her boys". Pure and simple jealousy. She obviously cares more about herself than her sons' wellbeing.View Thread
I have everything to be thankful for. I am married to a man that I love and respect and desire with all my body and soul. I have two beautiful daughters. I live in a place where I am not at risk of natural disasters, where the weather is nice, where I am surrounded by beautiful countryside. I am also thankful that I am doing something I love for a living. What more could I possibly wish for?View Thread
That's an interesting thought. Separate facilities for the obese is an idea that I like because an obese person doesn't have the same health issues as someone of a healthy weight. Their obesity adds so many complications to health problems. Also, another big plus that I see in this would be that overweight people could get medical care without being judged. The staff would be a lot more understanding towards them than in a standard facility.View Thread
I am grateful for so many things that I hardly know where to start - for being happy, for having a great family, for doing a job I enjoy, for living in a place I love... I have much to be grateful for.
How do I express gratitude? By saying"thank you" and meaning it. Any time someone does anything for me, no matter how insignificant it may seem, I say thank you. I like people to know that I appreciate them and what they do.View Thread
Before I continue, I need to say that all I know about this is what I have read in the article given above. The situation is entirely different in my country which is why I am so surprised. OK, read on ...
I'm appalled at what they're giving children to eat and drink. Waffles? Muffins? Chocolate milk? Get rid of the chocolate milk and devise balanced meals for children. And forget about the calorie limitation - children don't need that if they're eating a healthy meal. A muffin and a glass of milk must come pretty close to the limit anyway. No wonder the kids are starving. How do they manage to stay awake in the afternoon?
The meals at our school are designed to include:
I animal protein 1 raw veg 1 cooked veg 1 carb 1 dairy 1 fruit
Sometimes the groups are combined (dairy fruit = fruit yoghurt), sometimes they are balanced out over the week. There are never any processed foods. Produce is bought locally (loses fewer vitamins and costs less in transport). The menus are drawn up by the staff with the aid of a nutritionist.
If a parent chooses to give their child chocolate milk or whatever they can do it after school.View Thread
Why not? Cyclists shave their legs a lot so why not just wax? Why should women be the only ones to like having smooth hairless skin? I don't see why hair removal is such a big deal for either sex - it's not as if it's permanent.View Thread
