6 Dangers from Which Parents Can Protect Their Child

As a parent, it’s easy to start worrying about all the world’s dangers. Let’s review some of the common dangers and issues your children might face and how you can steer your youngsters away or talk to them about them. That probably doesn’t happen too often, but drugs are out there, and you should talk to your kids about them. You can’t necessarily spot a drug user immediately, but if you spend a little time with your child’s buddies, you can probably get an impression of whether or not they’re using anything or are likely to do so.

9 Great Nursing Career Options for Moms

One of the great things about being a school nurse is that your work hours will be the same as your child’s school hours. Factory nurses are also known as occupational health nurses or plant nurses. Telehealth nurses take on many of the same tasks as nurses in the doctor’s office. A telehealth nurse may work from a doctor’s office, health insurer’s office, or home.

How to Remodel Your Bathroom With the Ambiance of the Beach

The best part is that you can experiment with the colors to find out exactly which color scheme best gives the bathroom a beach ambiance. A glassy blue décor in the bathroom will give you the ambiance of a lot of water and the blue sky typical of a beach. If you want to create a beach-themed bathroom atmosphere, you should ensure that the décor in the bathroom is consistent. If you want to remodel a bathroom to give it a beach ambiance, you should try bringing the beach inside the house.

Sleep and Autism: 5 Ways to Help Your Child Get a Good Night's Sleep

As this is the case, my first piece of advice is to consult your child’s doctor to ensure there is nothing else you could be doing to help them sleep better. If they have a particular toy they like, make sure it’s there for sleepy time. They are a sign that it’s now time to wind down and start producing more sleep-inducing melatonin. Giving a 15, 10, and 5-minute cue to let your child know it’s time to start the bedtime routine can provide an easy transition from daytime to sleep time without it seeming too abrupt for them.

Self care is such an important topic, especially for parents of kiddos with special needs. When we aren’t at 100%, how can we give 100%? So take some time to yourself. Go get a drink with a@loved one, go take a bubble bath, read a book, ride a bike, or take a nap. Just do what helps you get some rest & relaxation so that you can keep doing what you are amazing at! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #motivationalquotes #motivationalwords #believeinyourself #inspirationalquotes #motivationalpage #chaseyourdreamsnotyourtail #gottastayfocused #successmindset #inspiringquotes #successquotes #motivation #millionairemindset #love #successtips #chaseyourdreamsnotthecompetition

Walker got this Spider-Man suit o Christmas Eve. I’ve already washed this Spider-Man suit 5 times and sewn it once. I’m surprised he let me wash it that many times and I haven’t had to sew it more 😂 ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #teammotherly #unitedmotherhood #parenting #momsofinstagram #joyfulmamas #mom #thisismotherhood #motherhood #motherhoodinspired #momswithcameras #momblogger #childhoodunplugged #sahm #motherhoodrising #candidchildhood #honestmotherhood #momlife #sahmlife #boymom #momlifebelike #letthembelittle #modernmom #love #holdthemoments #mommyblogger #momlifeisthebestlife #ohheymama #dailymotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #rawmotherhood

Meltdowns are often pictured as something a child would do, but autistic adults have them too. Even so, our meltdowns can vary greatly from person to person, and even day to day. For me, sometimes it is yelling and being completely out of control of my emotions. Other times, I just shut down to where I can move or function at all. Today was like that. I couldn’t handle the store we were in and I had to leave well before we were supposed to because the combination of people, noise, lights, and even my mask were extremely overwhelming. So much so I just wanted to shut down, sit in a corner protected by walls behind me and cry. I couldn’t see where my husband had gone and didn’t have the car keys. I was able to find him and get the keys, but I am still shaking 20 minutes later. All I want to do is be home now. So, remember that everyone’s autism affects them differently no matter their “level” “functioning label” or masking abilities. ⁣ ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #enlightment #blessed #knowledgeofself #inspiration #bethechange #abundancemindset #empowerment #forgiveness #changeyourlife #onedayatatime #personalgrowth #healingjourney #mindful #powerofthemind #successmindset #positivity #trustyourintuition #purposefulliving #beyourownmotivation #selfcarematters #healthymind #compassion #inspireothers #knowyourself #motivation #motivational #womensupportingwomen #actuallyautistic #autismmom #autisticmom

Sorry I haven’t been around much guys. It’s been a rough few weeks for me emotionally. Christmas is such an overwhelming holiday. I love the time spent with family, but there is so much preparation that it leaves me beyond exhausted. The just a couple weeks later, we have to transition as a family back to school and it is always a nightmare. I finally crashed hard yesterday and fell asleep midday. I woke up from it feeling worse than when I fell asleep. Trying to get my day on track today feels like a battle I can’t win. Trying to remember to practice self care and taking it easy for the evening. ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #innerwork #selfworth #thesecret #positiveaffirmation #dailyaffirmations #findyourself #affirmations #positivepsychology #confident #dailyaffirmation #selfgrowth #motivation #positivelife #abundancemindset #ownyourlife #positiveintentions #confidenceiskey #positivevibes #selfleadership #selfvalidation #alonequotes #selflove #postivequotes #affirmationsoftheday #affirmationsdaily #abundance #selfmastery #love #selfloveisthebestlove #selfconfidence

Walkers self portrait 😀 How was everyone’s winter break and the transitions back? This week, the girls went back to school which equals a couple rough days. Transitioning back from winter break is always hard on them because classes start so early. Walker and I started working back on writing skills and reading. One of his favorite school activities we do is watching Pokémon ABCs lol. .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #happynewyear #happynewyear🎉 #goodbye2020 #hello2021 #happynewyear2021 #newyear2021 #mamatribe #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodintheraw #motherhoodthroughinstagram #parentblogger #motherhood #uniteinmotherhood #momstrong #ttc #momofaboy #boymom #sahm #momsofinstagram #stayathomemomlife #lifewithkids #stayathomemom #honestmotherhood #transparency #kidsofinstagram #pottytraining #momlifebelike #momlife

As I look back on this year, I can say it has been one of the best years of my life. By far it has been no where near easy, but it has given us the chance to realize what matters most. To take a moment to step back and see the true blessings in our lives. Having the kids home since March is something I never could have I imagine, but I am so happy to spend time with them. Virtual schooling reminded me just how much mental health matters and how very little grades matter in comparison. This year has been trying, but I am thankful for the blessings we have had. As for 2021, I will tip toe quietly into the year hoping for a COVID to be a part of the past and excited to see what life after the pandemic will be like! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #happy2020 #chinesenewyear #newyeareve #zazen #grilling #undergroundhiphop #happynewyear2020 #newyearnewgoals #upcomingartist #newyearsresolution #newyearscelebration #2021 #newyeardecor #newyeariscoming #newyear2018 #tenderloin #newyearresolution #newmusicalert #newyearnewyou #newyeargoals #newyearseveparty #newdecade #newyear2021 #meditations #pinamar #achieveyourgoals #newyearsoutfit #newyear2020

While they may fight like cats & dogs at times, these two truly love each other. It's crazy to think that this picture is from two years ago! Walker still loves his little @reindeerinhere all year round!

Co-Parenting kids with special needs can be tough. We tried for years to figure out our expenses—co-pays for therapies, cost of medical equipment, giving copies of bills, and even school expenses with each other. As custody agreements change, we then had to figure out the new percentage of each bill. With many of their appointments being weekly (and sometimes daily) the tracking can become a paperwork nightmare. Not to mention, the balancing act of getting money to each other or discussing financial discrepancies was stressful because we only saw each other during our limited custody exchanges!⁣ ⁣ #ad That's why I absolutely love the @dcomplyapp! Dcomply makes managing finances so much easier for co-parents. It works for pretty much any financial circumstance with your co-parent. I love the design—it’s simple to use and set up was a breeze. You can upload receipts, track expenses, send quick bills, recurring bills, and arrange child support payments directly through the app. DComply is truly the best co-parent app that I’ve ever seen. Make sure to check out the link in my bio @themomkind to take the app for a spin. You can test it out before offering it up to your co-parent or you can choose to sign up together for a test run. ⁣ ⁣ #dcomply #DComplyPartner @wolfandfriends.app #wolfandfriends #specialneeds #autism #autismparenting #coparenting

Walker absolutely loves his @imaginext toys. It gives him the opportunity to learn pretend play with characters he knows and loves. They are such a great learning tool for young children. We’ve bought a few new, but most have been second hand. He absolutely loves his spider man and plays with it every day! What are your kiddos favorite toys? . . . . . ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #instamom #motherhood #our_everyday_moments #childhoodunplugged #motherhoodthroughinstagram #thatsdarling #lifestyle #toddlerlife #flashesofdelight #letthembelittle #mompreneur #thehappynow #instagood #motherhoodunplugged #toddler #liveauthentic #boymom #honestmotherhood #pregnant #livethelittlethings #toddlersofinstagram #healthylifestyle #simplychildren #letthekids #familytime #momlife #candidchildhood #uniteinmotherhood #littleandbrave #motherhoodrising

Today, my oldest turns 18. It’s a day that I have thought about over the years, each time with a different thought of how it might look. Since God Blessed me to be a part of her at 4 years old, there has never been a question that she is my daughter. I have loved her, prayed for her, and fought for her. Through the highs and lows, we’ve both grown in our faith and character. There were times where how I thought things should go, God had a different plan. Things have happened in her life that have rocked me to my core. There is nothing worse than your child suffering and being unable to take away that pain. Then there have been times where God has let me take on some of that pain, and it was unbearable. From little bitty girl to now an adult, this journey of ours has taught me more than I feel I could have ever taught her. Though there were those who doubted what she could do, she showed me true perseverance. Though their were obstacles that seemed like mountains, she pushed through with a smile and grace. When people hurt her, she was able to forgive and love the way God loves & forgives us. Today, my daughter is one of the most amazing and influential people in my life. I thank God everyday for allowing me to be a part of her life’s story. I am so very proud of you. Of the young woman you have become and of the young lady you have always been. There is nothing I wouldn’t do for you. I love you ❤️

This goofball went and “washed” scorbunny ❤️😆 Now if we can just get him to take a bath with such ease..lol #autism #scorbunny #parenting #motherhoodunplugged
