Learn to Listen

In order to be happy in life, we have to care about others. All relationships are based on understanding and commitment. We need to learn how to identify and understand the feelings, the situations and the motives of others. We all need empathy— loads of it. The next time a friend or a loved one wants you to listen, don’t talk. Squelch your impulse to interrupt when they are confiding in you. Most people don’t want answers or advice; they just need to be heard.

Down Syndrome Awareness

There are many congenital anomalies known to affect humans and one of them is Down syndrome, also known as Trisomy 21. In medical parlance, Down syndrome is defined as a congenital state characterized by mental retardation ranging from moderate to severe; the presence of anatomical features such as a wide short skull, slanting eyes and broad hands with stubby fingers; and a trisomy (having a triploid chromosome set in a setting when a diploid set is considered normal) of the chromosome numbered 21. This aberration causes the affected individual to be born with a total of 47 chromosomes instead of the usual 46.

Teaching Healthy Resiliency in Childhood

Almost every major life transition requires passing some sort of test before journeying on to the next phase. We cannot drive a car without passing a test; we cannot hold a job without first going through an interview; we cannot get into college without good SAT or ACT scores; we cannot get married without applying for a license and so forth. However, when it comes to having children, there is no test of parental capability and, needless to say, children are not born with a “how-to” handbook.
