Psychologist Jonathan Haidt studies the five moral values that form the basis of our political choices, whether we're left, right or center. In this eye-opening talk, he pinpoints the moral values that liberals and conservatives tend to honor most.

Well....that was unexpected. I don't usually see polyamory as a topic in advice columns.

A lot of this can be avoided by communicating better. People in modern society think it's so silly how old movies ant TV shows portray us, asking f we could be excused to leave the room, etc., but at least you knew what the person's intentions were and not waste time misunderstanding. Just one example.

Hmmmm
Libertarians and liberals think analytically and conservatives think holistically - culture war.

If you are concerned that, because of what they have heard about "Stranger Danger", your child is or may become unneccesarily fearful of people they don't know, feel anxious being in unfamiliar places, or not know where to turn or who to turn to if they are lost/ hurt/ need help and you are not around teaching them about "Safer Strangers, Safer Places" may be a good option.

Autism Awareness month doesn't mean that you know this neat word Autism and that some people have it.  Understand what this means.  Find a way to understand others.  That kid freaking out in the store or restaurant might not be freaking out because they weren't raised right.  

That person that shouldn't have said that because it was too blunt and rude might not have intended it, they might not understand/be capable of filtering, giving the world the unedited version.  

There's a long list of things you might encounter out there, things you might not immediately think "this might be Autism?"  

Here's some basics.  (screw the new DSM, we aren't playing diagnosis)

1.  Social Challenges - unable to filter, too literal in speech and understanding, repetitive, too long winded, doesn't catch onto hints or social cues, seemingly scripted speech.

2. Repetitive behaviors - saying the same thing over and over, having to do things in a patternistic way, often "OCD" is a title they adopt, need structure, get frazzled when things don't go according to plan.

3. Sensory Overload - Easy tantrums, shuts down in crowds, hates being around too many people, wears sunglasses a lot, earphones a lot, hates being touched/hugged, overreacts to sensory inputs that seem normal, etc...

There's so many ways it can manifest, but these are good examples.  Just because you know one person on the spectrum, does not mean everyone is like that, it comes in so many flavors.  

Want to know some realities, try http://www.wrongplanet.net

Want to know how to deal with people on the spectrum?  Simple.  Don't judge.  People on the spectrum have needs just like yours, including needing to be understood, to be safe, to be loved.  Just that often the ways life works to get there are different.

Part of that decline is a drop in child homicides. As of 2008, the homicide rate for kids under the age of 14 stood at a near-record low 1.5 cases per 100000, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. And the homicide rate for teens ages 14 to 17 plummeted from 12 homicides per 100000 in ...

Story
Introduction
I am a mother and homeschooler, and my family is the most important thing to me. 

My sister and I make and sell jewelry and accessories, find us on our site Just Cause Crafts , G+, Etsy, Twitter, and even Facebook.

I enjoy photography, Pentax cameras, crocheting, and making beaded jewelry (but I admit to not having any sort of objective idea of my skill level in any of those, and I could very possibly not be very good. That doesn't make them any less fun though :) ). 

I like helping people in need, and feel a sense of personal responsibility to try to  help the people in my society.  

I'm interested in nutrition, sustainable living, and learning and teaching my children as much as I can about as many subjects as possible.
Bragging rights
I'm pretty sure I'm a genuinely good person. That seems like something to brag about considering a lot of people I come in contact with.

Lee and his team are the best. Their prices are good, their work is top notch. They will explain your vehicle's issues to you however they need to to match your level of understanding. They care about the safety of you and your family, and will make sure your car is in a safe condition to drive first and foremost. They will give you a realistic estimate of how long you can wait to get certain work done, as well as making sure you understand which work is #1 priority and what minor issues can wait if you need them to. Everyone who works at accurate automotive is friendly and will treat you like a close friend or family. As a woman who was once told by a mechanic at a different shop: "tell your husband you need a WING NUT for this thing right here...", I can not stress enough how much I appreciate the fact that everyone at Accurate Automotive will NEVER speak to their customers in such a condescending way. They trust if you say you do understand some things about your car, and are never condescending even if you need "simple" things explained in more detail. I recommend Accurate Automotive to all of my friends and family, and will never go to another shop again.

I had seen another dentist before who, after glancing at my xrays, told me I had one and only one option for getting my tooth replaced, and the option he gave me seemed really extreme. I went to a different dentist after that who referred me to Dr Cravatta. Dr Cravatta's staff was friendly, though not very chatty (which is ok), Dr Cravatta himself was REALLY helpful. Not only did he look at my xrays, but he also did some 3D imaging to see exactly how much space there would be to put an implant in for me. He then went through SEVERAL options for me to choose from, explained each one at length, explained the pros and cons between them, and listened to my opinions about which ones were best suited for me personally, and gave me his recommendation. When I made my decision he referred me to an excellent orthodontist (Dr Tipton) for the next step in the process. Dr Cravatta was professional, friendly, and obviously concerned about my comfort level and desires, as well as what options would be the most permanant, and most cost effective.
