"I remember that we stood naked in the sauna, in line to have our hair removed, and I wondered—what are all these men doing here? We couldn’t recognize one another anymore.  I approached one of the Jewish guards and asked him if he would have a word with someone so that they wouldn’t cut off my pigtails, and he replied that so long as I had a head, hair would grow, while if I didn’t have a head, I wouldn’t need hair anyway."    —Dita (Kurschner) by rosanna

“Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison. We had no locks, therefore there were no thieves. When someone was so poor he couldn’t afford a horse, tent or blanket, he would receive it all as a gift. We were in bad shape before white men arrived. I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for civilized society” - John (Fire) Lame Deer, Sioux Lakota, 1903-1976 by pam

Anne on staying so positive through such a dark time. 'I’ve asked myself again and again whether it wouldn’t have been better if we hadn’t gone into hiding, if we were dead now and didn’t have to go through this misery, especially so that the others could be spared the burden. But we all shrink from this thought. We still love life, we haven’t yet forgotten the voice of nature, and we keep hoping, hoping for…everything.'     - Anne Frank, age by proteamundi

“Negro is an interesting word. This country couldn’t call us Africans, because if it had, we would have understood some things about ourselves. We would not have been this “Negro America”, constantly enslaved even after slavery. It would have given us a sense of continuity. So, they had to say 'colored' and 'Negro' and 'nigger' to keep us in our place- to remind us that we were only from this country.” ~Sonia Sanchez by proteamundi

One of our favorite little people, Michael, was coming for a visit today and when I asked him what he wanted for dinner he stated "that zucchini we had at Christmas and raspberry chicken". I explained that we only make that zucchini casserole on special occasions and he replied that his visit counted as a special occasion. I had to agree and off to the store I went for some zucchini. He is an adorable 5 and a half years old. Today I make this casserole just for him. Delicious. #zucchini by sherri

Truly & honestly some of THE. MOST. helpful parenting solutions I have ever read. My final thought to share is the fact that the best way that kids learn is by being taught, not by being punished.  When is the last time a teacher put a child in time-out because he didn’t get a math answer correct or couldn’t tie his shoes?  It simply doesn’t happen.  Why, then, do we think that it would work any better for behaviors?  Great ideas on handling "big emotions." by michael
