Birthday, Disney, and Disney World: I am in tears. humansofny Likedad 21,514 others humansofny "My first thought was 'Oh no wasn't ready for a kid. Her mother and I were fuck-ups and addicts. I'd just finished seven years in jail for robbery. But everything changed on Valentines Day, 1992. That's when I found out the baby was going to be a. Right away I started buying all this girly stuff. I was excited. I became more civil. I was going to raise my daughter to be kind and respectful to everyone. So l became that person. And she became that person too. Every day 1 picked her up from school after work. We went to theaters, and museums, and Disney World three different times. Every year on my birthday we dressed up and got tea at the Four Seasons. She ended up being the valedictorian of her class. She went to Duke on a full scholarship. Now she's in law school at NYU. I look at her and I think that she must have done all this by herself. Because I'm kinda 'street grew up in the projects. And she's gone so much farther than l ever could. SoI always thought I had nothing to do with it. But have friends who tell me that I made a big difference. AndI did always teach her to work hard and do her best. And she told me recently, that when she had to write an essay for her SAT, she called it: 'My Father, My Hero." iow all 741comment best parent award of the years goes to..

Children, Comfortable, and Growing Up: Stop Trying To Be Your Child's Friend and Actually Be The Parent @balleralert Stop Trying To Be Your Childโ€™s Friend and Actually Be The Parent -blogged by @peachkyss โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Parenting is such a touchy subject because no one wants to be told how to be a parent to their child. When most of us became parents, we had no clue about what to do and how to handle certain situations. Many have their parents for guidance along the way. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € What seems to be difficult for some parents is how to separate being the parent and the childโ€™s friend. Thereโ€™s nothing wrong with having a great relationship with your child and being open with one another, but shouldnโ€™t there be a limit? โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Some children get so comfortable with the friendship idea that the respect factor sometimes gets lost. In most cases, it gets out of hand. The child now feels that they can have that same relationship with all adults and it comes off as being disrespectful. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € A child should never know your personal business. Growing up, we knew what it meant to stay in a childโ€™s place. If we jumped in an adult conversation, we were guaranteed the evil eye from our mother's or better yet, a solid pop in the mouth. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Let children be just that, children. Show them how to be respectful to their elders. If your child sees that you are constantly disrespectful to adults or elders, they will think itโ€™s okay to do the same. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Parents, you are your childโ€™s first teacher. Give them the guidance thatโ€™s needed to be successful. Let them stay a child for as long as they can. Donโ€™t let them grow up so fast. They have time to be an adult, so we have to make sure that weโ€™re setting the example.

America, cnn.com, and Donald Trump: Don Lemon Fights Tears While Reading Open Letter To Donald Trump @balleralert Don Lemon Fights Tears While Reading Open Letter To Donald Trump - blogged by @baetoven_ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € On Monday night, DonLemon fought back tears while reading a letter he wrote to DonaldTrump and the widow of La David Johnson, one of four soldiers who was killed in Niger after an ISIS attack earlier this month. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € The letter came after Myeshia Johnson told GoodMorningAmerica on Monday that she was angered by Trump's condolence call because he allegedly struggled to remember her husband's name. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € After the interview, Trump responded on Twitter, saying he "had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt.
