A couple of days ago I got a call from Maine Medical Center (MMC) reminding of a doctor's appointment for my daughter, Vikki. I told them on the call I would be there. I get there and overlooked an ultrasound that was part of the visit, which was slated in just before the appointment. Oops.
Every morning Vikki and I hang out, sometimes we do puzzles and sometimes we play games, like Memory, her Minnie Mouse game or maybe Connect Four. We always have fun and she always wins. Is it alright to let a three-year-old win most of the time?
In New Hampshire an uncle of 9 year old twin boys is being charged with child neglect. Giobari Atura, 25, the kids' uncle, who was left in charge of the children's care, only came to check on the twins every couple of days to make sure they were alright.
A Silver Spring, Maryland couple are in hot water for letting their kids walk home from the playground one Saturday afternoon last month. The walk was about a mile and the children are 10 and 6 and 1/2. Do you think this was OK, or do you think it's worth the stink?
Here is a topic of discussion; I use this story just as inspiration. Violence is obviously never the answer when confrontations occur but in essence this story involves an unruly child shopping with their parent. It is something we've all had to deal with in one way or another.
An Augusta Mom has been charged after her four year old daughter left the house during a snowstorm to walk to the store to buy ice cream. The girl went to a local Circle K and when she got there to make her purchase the clerk gave her a Slush Puppie, and then called the police.
