  • Simply put -- it feels great to be lost in the right direction.

Go explore life!

Get lost in the right places, instead of staying still knowing exactly where you're at in the wrong places.

Stimming?  What is it?  Why is it?  Can we control it?.
.
I am certainly no therapist or doctor, but I have seen my fair share of stimming.  Stimming is any self-stimulating repetitive action or movement.  Almost EVERYONE "STIMS" from time to time – tapping your foot, kicking your leg when crossed, tapping the table with your fingers, cracking your knuckles….
.
For people on the spectrum and many with traumatic pasts, stimming can become socially challenging.  Examples of stereotypical stimming for these kids includes – 
hand-flapping
rocking, 
spinning, 
repetition of words/phrases, 
plugging ears, 
smelling object or fingers, 
humming or shrieking, 
chewing on inedible objects, 
biting self, 
picking….
.
If a child in your life “stims” regularly, you know it!  Interestingly, however, if you stim, you probably don’t notice it!  THEY DON'T EITHER!  My adopted daughter makes crazy noises with her throat ALL THE TIME and she does not realize she is doing it.  AND calling it to her attention usually MAKES IT WORSE..
.
I now realize that she has done this since she came home (and probably before) when she is nervous or out of sorts.  It is very hard to be patient with it because it seems she is doing it to purposefully be annoying – but she is not..
.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE ON STIMMING and some ideas and resources that may help with this type of behavior!.

As always, please SHARE YOUR EMAIL on my blog for more PERSONAL TOOLS and RESOURCES to help in this journey of parenting special needs and adopted children!  It is a marathon best run as a team, not a solo sprint!.

  • 為了海龜🐢和各種動物,小小行為的改變,可以帶來大的減塑環境。在消費時多想一下,減少一次性產品的使用,避免衝動購物造成的浪費,這些日常動作,或許我們不能強要別人跟著做,但從自身做起,慢慢帶動生活與環保互動的關係,某日驀然回首,會發現周遭人事、環境都因你的改變而改變,這種感動,恆久流長。

🌏自然減塑小動作,你可以這樣開始!

👉塑膠吸管→矽膠吸管
小小一根吸管可以造成環境汙染,隨手插吸管的習慣來改掉吧!環保矽膠吸管正流行,為了下一代你應該開始改變!怎麼買請上Lavida官網搜尋【美國gosili】超多吸管任你挑呦~

👉塑膠袋→購物環保袋
在購物時除了養成自備購物袋的習慣,還可更進一步選擇棉、麻等天然材質的購物袋,而不織布同樣屬於塑膠一族,甚至比塑膠袋更難被分解。

👉瓶裝水→保溫瓶
玻璃杯代替免洗杯,外出時盡量自備飲水,避免購買市售的瓶裝水與塑膠製包裝飲料。購買手搖杯飲料時,可請店家不要使用塑膠封膜,並且自備不鏽鋼吸管。

👉精緻包裝→裸裝
購買商品時,選擇非塑膠以及不過度包裝的商品,或是主動請店家裸裝與重複使用原本的包裝。

👉茶包袋→金屬濾網
市售茶包袋除了是一次性產品外,還有七成都是含 PET 材質的塑膠茶袋,因此泡茶時建議以茶具或金屬濾網來取代一次性的茶包袋。

👉購買全新品→購買二手物
培養真正有需要再買的購物習慣,並且盡量選擇能夠重複使用,或是能夠以二手交換的用物習慣,就能同時減少新塑膠製品與塑膠廢棄物的產量。

👉人造纖維衣料→棉麻衣料
人造纖維的衣料不但含有塑膠,在製程中還可能潛藏有毒的化學物質,最好還是選擇天然材質的棉、麻製衣物,既能穿得安心,而且透氣又舒適。

👉一次性電池→蓄電池
盡量選擇可自行充填的物品,例如可換蕊心的原子筆、自動鉛筆,或是以充電電池取代一般乾電池。

👉外食→帶便當
中午需要在外用餐的上班族和學生,每天自己帶便當盒,吃得健康又可減少保麗龍免洗餐具的使用量。

  • Brace Spaces are so important! Tonight we had the honor of hosting some pretty awesome Maplewood Richmond Heights parents. Real deep conversation was had,. How do you create a brave space? Should anything be added to this amazing list?

  • One of the last towns that we visited while in Germany was Mindelburg. It isn't too far from Munich, but it certainly felt like we were some of the only tourists in the town. Although we did see a few more, there were certainly not many.

Additionally, we wanted to get up to this Castle on the top of the hill. Google led us up a fairly steep side road that looked as if nobody actually used it for driving. Plus it was simply covered in round slippery nuts that had fallen from the numerous trees covering the road. On top of that, it was a wet day and the edge of the road was a rather quick drop into a ravine. I only kept going up because I determined that it was more dangerous to try to reverse back down.

When we finally made it to the top of that road, there were a few things: 1) a woman who looked startled that we came up from that road, 2) this Castle, and 3) a paved roadway that was clear and easy from the other direction. Thanks Google! We took that road on the way out.
