What relentlessly distressing stories some of the respondents have to tell. Their problems don't sound like they're caused by lack of diagnosis or increased rates of prescription - rather show need for more community support, better training of social workers, police, journos etc.
Just wonder how much contact Concerned and others have with parents in similar situations - and if there's some of way of putting you all in touch with each other - if you're interested? - miranda
It's OK Sue Bell ,
John Jay has obviously been " away " again .
He craves attention , so if we just ignore him he will no doubt wander back to his " right wing hate sights " like Bolt & Ackerman et al.
Meanwhile John Jay , suggest nice cuppa and a lay down . - Carole/m
Sly Place has just about said it all on Rudd's narcissism. I'd only add that he can't pretend to be naive about the effect his outbursts have had on Labor.
And if it was a former staffer who changed Rudd's mind on gay marriage, pity he didn't listen when the bloke was actually employed in his office. - miranda
Does Australia have parent training resources? I've read that parent training is helpful in managing the behaviour. - Rhoda
I used to be the type who would sit on top of the heater; freeze to death in winter; and lived in (then) skivvies and jumpers.
Then the big M set in!! Now I wander around the house barefoot. I own1 jumper and 1 thick cardigan. The only difference in what I wear to work is I have a raincoat and scarf for winter .... otherwise exactly the same clothes all year around. That's your "internal heater" working for you ... - Schoom
I love your rules,especially the one....treat others like you wish to be treated.
That was big in our home as I was growing up and it is just as big in my home now.
Along with everyday random acts of kindness....if we always live by these two rules then we can be sure to find a real inner happiness.x. - Debyl1
I hate no one.
I am cruel to no one.
I am a mere mortal who The Divine has chosen to speak to.
The Divine needs no proof, He is above all human failings.
Mock me, it does not hurt, i forgo all pride and sily human comforts.
All can read "The Message" and accept it or not.
I do not judge.
I pass one what i am told. - John Jay
Well said Benison. - Sally
Dear John Jay, like you I also have had divine revelations, wonderful revelations on the need to love all human kind, on compassion and empathy. The Divine revealed to me that he/she has no interest whatsoever in who has sex with whom.
Now let me make it very clear, you cannot prove these divine revelations that you claim you have, no more can I. All you can prove is your unrelenting hatred of anyone who does not subscribe to your very sick philosophies.
So Hooplarians, come join me in the "Church of the Unbelievers of John Jay's Divine". Let us be free of his hatred and cruelty. - sue Bell
Hmmm, lets hope that John Jay fella doesn't get wind of this! - Will Marshall
