Covid-19: Let’s Talk About What Kids’ Are Thinking (by a kid for kids)

I’m Allie, and I am 10 years old and one of your average kids. I am in the 5th grade and like most kids in America, if not around the world, I am home and have to stay put. Until now, I didn’t quite understand why I was out of school, why my dad is working from home, why our stores are all out of food and why I am doing school online–until I looked it all up and talked to my mom.

I hear parents helping people out there, especially my mom since she works in the mental health field and has been helping people deal with their emotions around this new weird virus thing. But no one is talking to kids. No one is answering their questions or talking about what we should do about this virus, how we should handle it, how serious it is and really just making us feel like we are a part of it all.

Do you have discussions with your teens and tweens about these important subjects or are you from a “let the chips fall where they may” belief system that subscribes to letting them figure it all out on their own?

Parents: Have You Lost Your Parental Rights At Your Child’s School? Are You Sure?

Picture this.

You are a divorced parent with a 15-year old son. He wants to live with his father to try a better school. You let him.

Next thing you know, your 15-year old son wants to live at a friend’s house for a while and his father allows him to do this. You have no idea the amount of time spent at this “friend’s” house.

A few months go by and you find, unbeknownst to you, that your son is living at this “friend’s” house, and with help from this family and some homosexual “advocacy groups”, your son has filed for “emancipation” without your knowledge. Next, they tell your son’s school that you knew about it and relinquished your parental rights. Your son, with the help from this “LGBT advocacy group”, filed a claim with false information and never alerted YOU as the mother.

It gets worse… Read more
