NO H8!

Here’s a weird thing….I started writing this post (see below) almost a year ago..it was so emotional to me I couldn’t publish it..I couldn’t actually allow the ugly person who wrote that message have a voice or a platform that they obviously could not build on their own and just didn’t deserve to use mine…

Managing the Meltdowns.

For Shelley and anyone else who may need it……. I got an email the other day from a mom whose 5 year old has just been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder otherwise known as Aspergers.  I know that  first feeling all too well as Kai was the same age when he got his diagnosis except…

If you wouldn’t pull the trigger then don’t help load the gun.

Having lost my birth mother a very short year after meeting her I know just how precious and fleeting life and time can be. So I can never fathom why anyone with five minutes to themselves would use their time to be nasty and cruel to a fellow human being. I am inspired to write…

iAM! iAM! iAM ME! The iAM Project begins.

The iAM Project iAM me! iAM Beautiful! iAM unique! iAM a mother of a son with Aspergers.

  Yesterday after doing shadow puppets on a school projector screen, my son Kai was grabbed from behind by his Science teacher, pulled out of his chair by his hoodie, and dragged across the room, hitting the door on the way out and being yelled at with, “I am sick of the stupid choices you make.” Whilst I…

Well hung eggs!

Bullying will never go away and we are stupid to think it might. There is a term in nature called “survival of the fittest” and the reason some animals eat their young is they know that the weak or deformed newborn has little chance of survival and as such gets sacrificed for whatever reason nature…

Open letter to Kerri-Anne Kennerly

Dear KAK, I see that Alex Perry is to appear on tmrw’s show AGAIN defending himself (again) and claiming that he was not previously lying his own rather overtuffed arse off when he guffawed at the suggestion (triggered by comments I made about him to a journalist in the hope of promoting positive images for…
