25 Manners Kids Should Know #1: When asking for something, say "Please." #2: When receiving something, say "Thank you." #3: Do not interrupt grown-ups who are speaking with each other unless there is an emergency. They will notice you and respond when they are finished talking. #4: If you do need to get somebody's attention right away, the phrase "excuse me" is the most polite way for you to enter the conversation. #5: When you have any doubt about doing something, ask permission first. It can save you from many hours of grief later. #6: The world is not interested in what you dislike. Keep negative opinions to yourself, or between you and your friends, and out of earshot of adults. #7: Do not comment on other people's physical characteristics unless, of course, it's to compliment them, which is always welcome. #8: When people ask you how you are, tell them and then ask them how they are. #9: When you have spent time at your friend's house, remember to thank his or her parents for having you over and for the good time you had. #10: Knock on closed doors -- and wait to see if there's a response -- before entering. #11: When you make a phone call, introduce yourself first and then ask if you can speak with the person you are calling. #12: Be appreciative and say "thank you" for any gift you receive. In the age of e-mail, a handwritten thank-you note can have a powerful effect. #13: Never use foul language in front of adults. Grown-ups already know all those words, and they find them boring and unpleasant. #14: Don't call people mean names. #15: Do not make fun of anyone for any reason. Teasing shows others you are weak, and ganging up on someone else is cruel. #16: Even if a play or an assembly is boring, sit through it quietly and pretend that you are interested. The performers and presenters are doing their best. #17: If you bump into somebody, immediately say "Excuse me." #18: Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and don't pick your nose in public. #19: As you walk through a door, look to see if you can hold it open for someone else. #20: If you come across a parent, a teacher, or a neighbor working on something, ask if you can help. If they say "yes," do so -- you may learn something new. #21: When an adult asks you for a favor, do it without grumbling and with a smile. #22: When someone helps you, say "thank you." That person will likely want to help you again. This is especially true with teachers! #23: Use eating utensils properly. If you are unsure how to do so, ask your parents to teach you or watch what adults do. #24: Keep a napkin on your lap; use it to wipe your mouth when necessary. #25: Don't reach for things at the table; ask to have them passed.
Very true!! My children will always know they were loved by their father and I because we have and always will be there and will never give up on them...this will always be their home because we've never given up on them.
anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.

Hey all,My name is Jenn… I’m the creator of the “Big Is Beauty Project” on Youtube.I took this picture about a year ago, right after I had surgery.I took it to prove a point. If someone of say, a size 2 were to have taken this picture - it would be beautiful and artistic. If someone of my size takes a picture like this, nothing but negative comments are written about it. Is this right? No. It’s not. Who are you to tell me I can’t be beautiful and artistic? Don’t be afraid of what others have to say. If you like your body and want to share it with the world - GO RIGHT AHEAD!!!!Get to know someone before you judge them. You have no right making other people feel like crap just because you don’t like the way they look.I struggled with body image my entire life, and just recently over the past few years have come to terms with the size of my body. It is possible to love your body, yet hate it at the same time. But, when the hate starts overpowering the love - you need to make a change. You can either try and change how you look, and transform your body into something that you’ll adore… Or, you can learn to accept and love the body that life has given you. You’ll never be perfect. Nobody is perfect. Nobody can say that they love absolutely everything about themselves. Learn to take something negative, and change it into something positive.t’s okay to be fat. Just as it’s okay to be skinny, white, black, gay, bisexual, straight, whatever. You’re you, and you are beautiful no matter what.Everybody is different, every body is different.[Exerpts from my blog; http://missbigbeauty.tumblr.com]BE BRAVE! JOIN THE REVOLUTION!

Let them pick 2-3 chores to do each week...I don't know that I expect my 3 year old to wipe cabinets, but she can certainly help dust!
Another pinned did this one but It gave me an idea. We should all make one of these for ourselves and put them all on one board together. Just saying the # of pills you take, hrs. of treatment, etc. By doing this we can share a little bit about ourselves, learn more about each other, and raise more awareness for cystic fibrosis. If you like this idea either like this post or let me know in the comments and I'll figure out a way to make it happen!
i don't have kids (yet), but someday i'ma make them one of these out of the extra large hula hoops. you know, so i can get in there with
Elizabeth Smart speaks on human trafficking -CSMonitor.com "I thought, 'Oh, my gosh, I'm that chewed up piece of gum, nobody re-chews a piece of gum, you throw it away.' And that's how easy it is to feel like you know longer have worth, you know longer have value" "Why would it even be worth screaming out? Why would it even make a difference if you are rescued? Your life still has no value." Smart says children should be educated that "you will always have value and nothing can change that."
Forgiveness doesn't have anything to do with the other person. It doesn't matter if they know we forgave them or not. Forgiveness has to do

DATE A GIRL WHO READS
by Rosemarie Urquico
Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.
Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag.She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.
She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book.
Buy her another cup of coffee.
Let her know what you really think of Murakami. See if she got through the first chapter of Fellowship. Understand that if she says she understood James Joyce’s Ulysses she’s just saying that to sound intelligent. Ask her if she loves Alice or she would like to be Alice.
It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas and for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry, in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.
She has to give it a shot somehow.
Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.
Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who understand that all things will come to end. That you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.
Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilight series.
If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are.
You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.
You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.
Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.
Or better yet, date a girl who writes.

Was not every child meant to feel innocence? Was not every child meant to feel the warmth and the beauty that I felt that day for a mere hour before we strategically plotted against the ones who were to lead us away from my innocence. If we all walk deeper into these woods together the fear may not take us all. It may only just take a few. But the few that it does take it will make us stronger. It will give me wrinkles....I never thought it was possible for such a young child to develop these crows feet. The ones taking away our innocence are giving the flawless white rabbits matted hair, but I will brush it and we will walk on. And when the few birds drop from the gun shots fired we will not cower with so much fear as we would if we were alone....no. we will just wipe the blood from their wings and shut their eyes. Use their blood to make our cheeks look like we have a bit of life left in us....and keep going. Stay right by me. Keep my shred of innocence okay, Fox? Okay he says. If they strike us give them no satisfaction is our agreement. And it's our agreement throughout our whole journey through the woods. As time has past and I realize death is upon us all and my innocence was never intended to be kept safe forever...I see a light shine through the dark woods and a shout of that beauty I spoke of so long ago...a man of fear behind me shot Fox in desperation....to prove his control of a situation never controlled. A girl never meant for innocence spat in his face, picked up her friends body, and ran towards freedom.
you know, I may have loved this ring just as much as the diamond I got on my wedding day. Who says it has to cost thousands? The
