Did protecting my kids’ innocence work? No and yes. In their growing-up years they still watched things they shouldn’t (when I didn’t know) and one of my children as a teen found a way to get around some of the safety protections we set up on the Internet and was drawn into places this teen should never have been. So I wasn’t able to protect my kids completely. But in many ways they were allowed to stay kids longer. by Emma911!

"I was a model. I did shows in the garment district. And I was, what they called, haute couture — they made things on me, designers. I never did photography because I was afraid of my father. I didn’t want him to know where I was working or what I was doing." -Edith Beale by kelly.meli

There comes a moment when you have to stop showing your feelings to the one you love, as this person wasn’t able to see and appreciate these warm feelings. You have to hide your love in heart.    I didn’t stop loving you. I just decided to stop showing it because no matter how hard I tried you just wouldn’t get it. by Tebogo Mosiane

I've used this song with my students. It has over 30 similes. I did three activities with it. Allowed them to first just listen to it with the lyrics showing on YouTube. Next, I told them to write as many as they could in their journals while listening to the song. I allowed the kids to pick one of the similes in the song and do an illustration (with help from art teacher). I am going to make a video with their pics using the song! The video is by marilyn

My wish for my step kids or should I say their mom...Although the kids are allowed to openly love their step dad they are not allowed to love their dad, step bothers, step sisters or even their wicked step mom. Its sad. But its still my wish for them. They deserve and need all the love being withheld from them. by dona

“Ron and Hermione, however, are drawn to each other because they balance each other out. Hermione’s got the sensitivity and maturity that’s been left out of Ron, and Ron loosens up Hermione a bit, gets her to have some fun. They love each other and they bicker a bit, but they enjoy bickering, so we shouldn’t worry about it.”    -JK Rowling by TiffyJean

You don't need long nails to be able to use MagicManicure Gel Polish. Applying this polish to short, thin and fragile nails will help to strengthen them and prevent them from breaking. Remember when I posted up a pic back in April of my short, damaged nails after having acrylics on for too many years? This is how they now look 5 weeks later. They are finally growing! by sonia

I actually wanted to be an art therapist! It was because of my experience with volunteering at Villa Esperanza which is a school for children with severe autism. It wasn’t until I volunteered 100 hours here did I realize how much I could contribute. I remember my first day I was terrified of interacting with someone with autism because I didn’t want to be disrespectful. by gina

How to Build an Inexpensive Hoop-Style Greenhouse One of the most valuable assets in my garden is my greenhouse. It has allowed me to grow plants that I normally would not be able to grow, produce crops that the season is not usually long enough to produce, and protect my plants from frosts, hail, or other severe weather that normally would have destroyed my garden. by marjorie
