5 Reasons One Parent Should Stay at HomeBy InvestingAnswersPostsBy InvestingAnswers | Work + Money – Thu, Jan 26, 2012 11:44 AM EST Email The benefits of a single-income household.If you total every expense from child care and health care to groceries and recreation, the first 18 years of a child's life can cost a small fortune -- $190,528 to be exact. Child care alone can cost around $4,300 a year for one child, according to Bankrate.com. So, let's say you have two kids. If one parent stays home instead of working, you could save close to $10,000 a year. For most couples, deciding who works and who stays home comes down to plain economics. Some parents would love to be able to stay home with their child, but they simply can't afford it. Others love their kids but also love to work. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than half of American children live in two-income households. Still, a family can benefit by sticking to the one-income model. Here are five practical reasons why one parent should stay at home: 1. Money Wait… what?! Isn't it kind of a no-brainer that having both parents work means much

All Things Katie Marie: Tattle Jar
Just thought this was a good guide!! Sometimes teachers and parents dismiss children when they shouldn't (as the trusted adult) because they don't want to hear tattling. This is a good guide to go by for both adults and for adults to teach kids.
Oh my goodness! This is such a clever idea for moms or teachers! Create a tattle jar for kids to put them in and a chart to help them decide if they were making good choices!! She has it printable here too

This info will definitely help me in the near future. It's important to gain knowledge regardless of what disabilities our school kids have. Who know, I may be a teacher for an autistic child one day, even before they are diagnosed... Food for thought
We try hard to help children with Asperger's and other autism spectrum disorders to to work on eye contact. This is not always the best way to increase the quality of their communication. My short, illustrated essay offers some insights.

Reduced brain volume in kids with low birth-weight tied to academic struggles An analysis of recent data from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of 97 adolescents who were part of study begun with very low birth weight babies born in 1982-1986 in a Cleveland neonatal intensive care unit has tied smaller brain volumes to poor academic achievement. More than half of the babies that weighed less than 1.66 pounds and more than 30 percent of those less than 3.31 pounds at birth later had academic deficits. (Less than 1.66 pounds is considered extremely low birth weight; less than 3.31 pounds is labeled very low birth weight.) Lower birth weight was associated to smaller brain volumes in some of these children, and smaller brain volume, in turn, was tied to academic deficits. Researchers also found that 65.6 percent of very low birth weight and 41.2 percent of extremely preterm children had experienced academic achievement similar to normal weight peers. The research team — led by Caron A.C. Clark, a scientist in the Department of Psychology and Child and Family Center at the University of Oregon — detected an overall reduced volume of mid-brain structures, the caudate and corpus callosum, which are involved in connectivity, executive attention and motor control. The findings, based a logistic regression analyses of the MRIs done approximately five years ago, were published in the May issue of the journal Neuropsychology. The longitudinal study originally was launched in the 1980s with a grant from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (National Institutes of Health, grant HD 26554) to H. Gerry Taylor of Case Western University, who was the senior author and principal investigator on the new paper. Our new study shows that pre-term births do not necessarily mean academic difficulties are ahead, Clark said. We had this group of children that did have academic difficulties, but there were a lot of kids in this data set who didnt and, in fact, displayed the same trajectories as their normal birth-weight peers. Academic progress of the 201 original participants had been assessed early in their school years, again four years later and then annually until they were almost 17 years old. We had the opportunity to explore this very rich data set, Clark said. There are very few studies that follow this population of children over time, where their trajectories of growth at school are tracked. We were interested in seeing how development unfolds over time. The findings, Clark added, provide new insights but also raise questions such as why some low-birth-weight babies develop normally and others do not? It is very difficult to pick up which kids will need the most intensive interventions really early, which we know can be really important. The findings also provide a snapshot of children of very low birth weights who were born in NICU 30 years ago. Since then, technologies and care have improved, she said, meaning that underweight babies born prematurely today might have an advantage over those followed in the study. However, she added, improving NICUs also are allowing yet smaller babies to survive. Clark now is exploring these findings for early warning clues that might help drive informed interventions. Pre-term birth does mean that you are much more likely to experience brain abnormalities that seem to put you at risk for these outcomes, she said. They seem to be a pretty strong predictor of poor cognitive development as children age. We really need to find ways to prevent these brain abnormalities and subsequent academic difficulties in these kids who are born so small.

This is a story about parents making a difference
Conducting psychological evaluations on children can be difficult since they typically have short attention spans. As a result, effective child psychologists are usually able to adapt evaluation and treatment methods to individually suit the children they work with. Child psychologists must also be able to involve parents in their children’s treatment and answer any questions they may have. They also frequently collaborate with teachers, school counselors, and other health care professionals.

Point of view
Nice job on the diversity of the "How we really are", EXCEPT that, y'know, most of us are actually adults. This reminds me of the whole pro-life thing - kids only matter before they're born, 'cept with autism it only matters when they're kids. Perhaps that's why so many wish to prevent us from being born in the first place, so we never have to matter at all. #autism
the therapy dogs one made me laugh!
