The Pride Parade 2017:

The recent annual pride parade in New York City served as both a meaningful civil rights demonstration and an exciting celebration of love and unity. While the downtown streets were laden with rainbow flags and colorful costumes, the overall mood in the atmosphere was filled with energy and happiness. Many unique contingents and organizations marched in this year’s parade including several nonprofits, corporate partners, small businesses, and popular celebrity figures.

How To Have A Peaceful Thanksgiving, Even When Tensions Are High:

This year, perhaps more than ever, the world just seems on edge. No matter what your political affiliation, it seems that the divides, even within families, are too deep to heal. If you’re dreading sitting down to dinner with your family, there are a few ways to make Thanksgiving more tolerable – and they don’t have to involve wine.

Make a list of safe subjects Scan the internet for current events that aren’t political. There have to be subjects you can all agree on. Make a list of things to talk about. Talk about pleasant family memories or about the children in the family. Talk about the time you scaled that mountain, or even about rude sales clerks. In other words, talk about just about anything but politics, and Apple vs. Android (or PC). Bring props If your list of safe topics aren’t working, bring some tools.

Minimize The Stress of Moving For Children:

When planning to move it can be a big upheaval for the entire family. Parents tend to focus on the practical problems but children will focus on all the losses that the move creates. This can be the loss of their friends or of a safe and familiar environment. The decision to move is made by the adults and the child feels powerless, which can cause distress. However when the move is planned well distress is not necessarily the outcome. Talk to your children as early as possible so they have an idea as to what is happening and why. Tell the child all about their new home and give them time to digest the news at there own pace. Children have short attention spans so prepare yourself to talk to them briefly about the move before they move on to something else. Just because your child can't decide when and where your move will be does not mean they can't participate in other ways. Include them in decorating their new rooms and let them pick out the colors. Let them help in setting…
