We drink raw milk, fresh from a cow. Well, refrigerated first. I love it. I also love cheese. Only my 8 yr old (as) will drink milk, also, but not nearly as often as I do and usually only if it's chocolate.

My 8 yr old isn't mean. He can be aggressive, but he's not mean. I used to work at a daycare in a health club and some of the kids were frustrated with him and said he was being mean. After talking with them, they understood that he wasn't being mean on purpose. These kids had a very good understand...

BUT that is lying because he let us believe it for too long and that is not acceptable. But he did not lie to you on purpose . Tell him to not trick you anymore and ask him how he would feel if you did that to him. Be ready for possible tears as it can be kind of scary to realize mom and dad can 't...

(I don't mean to sound angry at anyone here - you are all made of win and awesome; it's the cultural assumption that's making me upset.) Yeah, I get irritated by it, too. Although, I've found myself aksing my husband and friends, "What's empathy? I don't understand it." In their explanations, they'...

Well, the agenda for the first meeting will be introductions. We might also discuss where we all want to hang out in furture meetings since we all come from different parts of the city and have many interests. Nothing too heavy really. Never will be. It's mostley just a hang-out and maybe we'll try...

Okay guys. I'm working Thursday 11-6am. I work nights in case I didn't mention that before. Is Friday better with you guys? Like around 6pm or so? It's good for me, but I'll probably have the kids and husband with me. Oldest is an aspie, too, and middle has sensory processing disorder. Should be fu...

Don't look at their lips?! OMG! I can't hear them if I'm not looking at the mouth at some point! Crap. If you do that often it is considered a sexual insinuation. I have problems screening background noises too, If that was the concern... I had no idea. 8O And yes, filtering out background noise is...

Sorry if this has been covered before, but whenever I make eye contact I don't know which eye to look at. Do I pick one eye and look at that, alternate eyes (and if so how often? Once a second?), or look at some vague spot in the middle?! Other people seem to do it so naturally! Again, sorry if thi...

Not well. I get all worked up inside my head over it and can't figure out what's appropriate length of time to stare at their eyes and then I look between their eyes and in each eye and finally just wanna scream, "I can hear you, I just can't focus if I'm making eye contact!! !"

I had to get a root canal today but I was so very comforted with the lead apron. I almost considered asking them to leave it on me. It was cozy. Does anyone else like the pressure of that? I don't have a weighted blanket, but I think I'm going to look into getting or making one. No, but I love the ...

is it possible to determine what's wrong with someone based upon where their headache is localized like nail through the head, behind the eyes, behind the head, extending to the neck... That sounds like a stress-induced migraine. Congratulations -- life's gonna suck for you for about 3 days! Try ta...
