Daughter refuses to wake up after nap, then mom looks closer at her face and runs to the phone

in Trending

Summertime brings sunshine and warmer weather. Which is usually a fun time for many kids who are off school and can enjoy numerous outdoor activities.

However parents should remain vigilant. Sun and heat can certainly bring fun and joy, but they can also be very dangerous. Take heatstroke for example. 

There has been posted about being cautious when leaving your kids in the car when really hot outside. Now, mother Jennifer Abma wants to warn parents of another scenario which can cause a child to have a heatstroke during warm temperatures.

The mother’s experience was so upsetting that she decided to share this story on her Facebook page.

On July 14th, Jennifer shared an experience on her Facebook page as a warning to all other parents out there. The young mother was clearly shaken by the frightening experience.

Jennifer was about to check up on her little girl, Anastasia, who was in her bedroom on a hot summer’s day.

Jennifer noticed that Anastasia was deep in sleep, but also extremely hot. As it transpired, the girl was suffering from a severe heatstroke — despite not even being out in the sun that day.

Thankfully, Anastasia would be okay but Jennifer feels all parents should be more cautious when it’s especially hot — whether outdoors or indoors.

Here’s what the mother had to say:

“This was my evening, this was the scariest moment I’ve had to imagine, this is severe heatstroke. There is nothing scarier than not being able to wake your baby up.

This is clear proof a child doesn’t need to be in the sun to get heat stroke. It took us 20 minutes to wake her up, when ambulance came, they came with investigators because they didn’t know what to expect as did I.”

Anastasia put herself for a nap, I had no idea how hot her bedroom was until I went to wake her up soaked in sweat, red face, boiling and unable to wake her for 15 minutes, ambulance arrived faster then I could have ever imagined and took her sugars which were 1.2 and should be above 4, they administered sucrose and in minutes she started crying clearly scared.”

“This was proof how fast things change.

“No it is not my fault this happened to her but it is hard not to blame yourself, this is a lesson learnt & hopefully other parents can take something from this & make sure you are checking the rooms in your house because thy can be as dangerous as a hot car.

Still I’m shook and I can’t imagine what would have happened if I didn’t go check on her. We definitely had god on our side yesterday and I am thankful for emergency services and Jay who came as fast as possible to keep me together.”

Yelling at Your Children Too Much Can Cause Depression and Anxiety in Them

in Trending

If you find that you are yelling at your children too loud or constantly? Then you need to stop doing this! Pause and take a deep breath and just slow down a little. Try to chill out!

Science research says that yelling at your children too much can result in them suffering from depression and anxiety, and lets face it nobody wants their children to suffer from these mental illnesses.

What you are supposed to do is have a conversation with them in a calm voice telling them what they did wrong, what they should be doing instead and not to do it again.

Try add a little humor to the conversation it can make things better too. However, thats not to say a good yell now and again when one hits the other can shock them into not wanting to do it again.

Aim to have a good balance of only yelling at them when it is needed and talking to them in a calm voice the rest of the time when they are in trouble. Basically, tell them what they did wrong by speaking calmly.

Not only does yelling too much cause depression and anxiety in your children. It can also cause to yell at others and think its acceptable.

They will also be inclined to do the same to their children when they get older and thats not something you want to encourage, do you? If not then it’s time to stop yelling so much!

Rancher Finds Squirrel With Curly, Overgrown Teeth And Takes Him Home To Save His Life

in Trending

Jannet Talbott lives on a ranch in rural Alberta, Canada, miles from the nearest town, but she’s far from all alone. Jannet owns the Double J Freedom Ranch near Barrhead, Alberta.

A host of animals, both domestic and wild, live on her property — and she knows that being a good neighbour means looking out for them, too. Recently, Talbott went above and beyond to do just that.

One sunny day in June 2018, while out doing some yard work on her property, Jannet noticed a cute little sabertooth squirrel eating from her bird feeder. That’s when she noticed something strange on the side of his face.

Squirrels’ teeth never stop growing, but they are normally kept in check from use.

Realising a poor squirrel was unable to eat his normal diet of nuts and bark, because his teeth were so long and overgrown, Jannet decided to intervene. His four incisors were even curling backward into his mouth!

Knowing his life span would be much shorter if he couldn’t close his mouth or chew his food, Jannet decided to bring the squirrel inside and perform some DIY dental work.

Jannet Talbott has been helping animals ever since she was a little girl. She took to YouTube and watched some videos to learn how to trim squirrel teeth, wrapped him in a towel, and got to work on the delicate procedure.

If ever she saw an animal in need, no matter the species, she would bring it home to care for it. It’s where she works with horses and rescues dogs, helping to place them with loving families.

This is Jannet’s backyard and animal sanctuary. Gorgeous, right?

Jannet figured the squirrel was born with an irregular bite and could only manage to eat the finches’ bird food. His life was at risk because he wasn’t able to close his mouth or chew his food.

Squirrels have four incisors that continuously grow — but normally, their teeth are ground down by their diet of nuts and tree bark.

After taking a closer look, Jannet realized the squirrel was particularly skinny and his teeth were so overgrown that they were curling backward.

I feel a deep connection with animals, and a duty to advocate for them and be their voice,” she says.

The passionate animal lover knew she needed to help save his life. Using her leather garden gloves, Jannet picked up the squirrel from the bird feeder, brought him inside, and named him “Bucky.”

She taught herself how to trim a squirrel’s teeth by watching YouTube tutorials. After wrapping him in a towel, Jannet was able to get an even closer look at her new dental patient.

Bucky’s top two incisors were so long and curly they nearly pierced him right in the eyes! “I do believe animals know when you’re trying to help them,” she says.

Jannet described him as a “model patient” who remained calm during the delicate DIY dental work. Squirrels don’t have nerve endings in their incisors, so Bucky did’t feel much pain.

Janet used a standard cuticle trimmer to trim Bucky’s exceptionally long teeth. She also feels Bucky was barely surviving on crushed and shelled sunflower seeds.

Once she released him the next day with his new set of teeth, she was delighted to find him eating whole peanuts. She looked on as Bucky ran up the tree and rub his cheeks for the first time.

I watched him sharpen is newly trimmed incisors on a tree branch… fingers crossed he keeps them worn down. Just look at that smile.

Teacher’s fired for giving zeros to students who didn’t turn in work – leaves goodbye note on board

in Trending

Teachers job are getting tougher each year. Many rules and regulations have been changed which make a teacher’s task more difficult to remain compliant with so many different rules and regulations in place.

The discussion over the advantages of teachers giving out homework has been a hot topic for quite a while now. A few people believe it’s out of line, giving kids additional work to do when they ought to wind down after school.

Others consider it a way of broadening a child’s education outside of the hours they’re in a classroom and showing them other life lessons instead. The argument probably won’t go anywhere in the near future, however, it’s positively taken a different turn.

One Florida teacher has been fired for not handing out credits to students who neglected to finish their given homework task.

For example in some private schools teachers are not allowed to fail students regardless of their attendance or homework. The principles would pass down this information that often came from administration. The logic being that parents paid money for private schools so teachers could not hold the students back.

Is this a similar situation with public schools? A Florida teacher learned a lesson the hard way. When her students failed to turn in their assignments she gave them zeros and ended up paying for it with her job.

Diane Tirado had been teaching for years and had got a new job at Westgate K-8 School in Port St. Lucie. As an eighth grade US history teacher, she was teaching something that most students should have done well until her teaching methods came under fire.

Several students did not turn in their Explorer notebook project and Diane gave them zeros. Despite the students being given two weeks to complete they still failed to turn in their work.

There is a policy active at the school that is called the ‘no zero’ policy. The policy states that the lowest possible grade is 50%. The teacher asked administrators about the rule and then said: “But what if they don’t turn it in, and they say we’ll give them a 50? Oh no we don’t.

Tirado was terminated just a few weeks after she started her new job at the school. This is a message she wrote on her last day which was shared on Facebook later.

“Bye Kids, Mrs. Tirado loves you and wishes you the best in life! I have been fired for refusing to give you a 50% for not handing anything in.”

Since she was still on a probationary period the termination letter did not specify why she was fired. As a result she may not have grounds for suing the school or to get assistance from the teachers union. When it comes right down to it, however, she does not regret standing up for what she believes in.

“A grade in Mrs. Tirado’s class is earned,” she said. “I’m so upset because we have a nation of kids that are expecting to get paid and live their life just for showing up and it’s not real,” she added.

She is now sharing her story on Facebook and it has gone viral. Hopefully it will serve to change the policy.

“The reason I took on this fight was because it was ridiculous. Teaching should not be this hard. Teachers teach content, children do the assignments to the best of their ability and teachers grade that work based on a grading scale that has been around a very long time. Teachers also provide numerous attempts to get the work collected so they can give a child a grade. By nature, most teachers are loving souls who want to see students succeed. We do above and beyond actual teaching to give them the support they need. Are we perfect? NO. We make mistakes like all other human beings, but I know teachers work their butts off to help children to be the best people they can be!!!”

Many of the viewers on Facebook are taking sides with the teacher and agree that she shouldn’t be fired.

A teacher should have the right to decide the grade a child receives. If they simply do not turn in the work, an F they should receive … If you start handing out 50% to everyone that does not turn in their work, what example does that teach? The child needs to be held accountable for the work they do not turn in,” one Facebook user commented.

Perhaps Tirado’s will help her to get a new job now that her story is viral. Perhaps schools will look differently at how students should be treated when they don’t turn in their work.

Stepdad is fooled to pay for daughter’s wedding, responds with 7 words that make everyone freeze

in Trending

In present times its no longer unusual for all kinds of different families to exist that aren’t the traditional close family. Stepparents, stepchildren and stepbrothers and sisters is only where is starts. This method also works many families.

For the stepdad in this story, however, things weren’t going exactly the way he wanted. He explains how he’d been supportive and welcomed his new partner and her daughter from a past relationship… but when came time for this partner’s daughter’s wedding day, things didn’t go as planned.

It’s not definite whether this stepdad’s story actually happened in real life or not, but regardless of it being true or not its worth having a read.

My step-daughter will be getting married on November 3rd.Planning the wedding has taken over most of her and her mother’s lives for the last six months.

My step-daughter graduated from University last December. I paid for her college costs , though it was a state school, it still cost $40,000. She does not have a job and has been living with us since she from high school. I also bought a car for her to travel to and from school.

From time to time her biological father would come into her life and she would butter up to him. Although he has not contributed a single dollar to her education or paid any child support throughout the years.

Although that is my girlfriend’s fault as C.S. was not part of the settlement, she still loves him and wants him in her life. He stays long enough to break her heart each time by leaving town and breaking promises that he made her.

The wedding venue holds max 250 people . I gave a list of 20 people that I wanted to invite, since I was paying for everything. They told me that was no problem and they’d take care of it. So I let these people know they’d be getting an invite and they should save the date.

Saturday, I saw one of my friends on this list at the golf course and asked if he was coming. He told me that he wasn’t invited. He told me that he got an announcement, but not an invitation.

He had it in his car and showed it to me. Sure enough, it was just an announcement, and my name was nowhere to be seen on it. It had her father’s name and her mother’s name on it and not mine.

This led to a pretty big fight with my girlfriend, as I found out that NONE of my list of 20 “made the cut” for the final guest list because “250 people is very tight.” I was very angry, but there wasn’t much left for me to do because the precious people in my life had already been offended. My girlfriend said “if some people didn’t rsvp yes, I might be able to get a couple people in.” So, I was raging on Saturday.

Yesterday, we had a Sunday dinner with the future in-law’s family and us and a surprise guest, the “Real Dad.” At this little dinner my step-daughter announced that her “Real Dad” was able to attend her wedding and that now he would give her away. This was greeted with a chorus of “Oh how great” and “How wonderful”s.

I don’t think I have ever felt so mad and so disrespected. I was shaking. I took a few seconds to gather my self-control, because I honestly wasn’t sure if I was going cry or start throwing punches. When i knew I’d be able to speak I stood up from my seat and said I’d like to make a toast. I not sure of what i exactly said but the gist of it was this:

“I’d like to make a toast.” The sound of spoons against glasses ring in my ears. “It has been my great pleasure to be a part of this family for the past ten years.” Awe, how sweet. “At this point in my life I feel I owe a debt of gratitude to bride and groom, because they have opened my eyes to something very important.”

Confident smiles were exchanged. “They have showed me that my position in this family is not what I once thought it was.” And now a glimmer of confusion and shock begins to spread on the faces in the room.

“Though I once thought of myself as the patriarch or godfather of the family, commanding great respect and sought out for help in times of need, it seems instead that I hold the position of an ATM, good for a stream of money, but not much else.

As I have been replaced as host, both on the invitations and in the ceremony, I am resigning my financial duties as host to my successor, Real Dad. So cheers to the happy couple and the path they have chosen.” I finished my drink. “You all can let yourselves out.”

Republican lawmaker Eric Porterfield, who is under fire for homophobia, has doubled down by joking about drowning his children for being gay.
West Virginia Republican state delegate Eric Porterfield has been facing criticism for comments he made on February 6 comparing gay people to the KKK.

Addressing the controversy in a February 10 interview with local TV outlet WVVA, the outspoken Trump supporter stuck by his remarks while wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat.

Asked how he would react if one of his children came out as gay, Porterfield said: “Well, my daughter… I would take her for a pedicure, I’d take her to get her nails done… and see if she could swim.
“If it was my son, I would probably take him hunting, I would take him fishing… then I’d see if he could swim.”

Pressed on what “see if he could swim” means, a grinning Porterfield replied: “I just want to make sure they can swim.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Porterfield, who was elected to the West Virginia House of Delegates in November 2018, doubled down on claims that gay people are “bullies, tyrants and oppressors.”
