Domestic Violence

I don't have children of my own. Sex education is taught in schools but I don't remember being taught anything about domestic violence. I was just curious how parents deal with educating their children about it (or if they don't).  (Oct 13, 2012 | post #8)

Domestic Violence

Yes, domestic violence happens to men, too... as well as children, disabled, elderly, and pets. However, my real question is... how & when do you talk to your kids about it?  (Oct 13, 2012 | post #6)

Domestic Violence

Everyone knows that October is Breast Cancer awareness month (pink). Did you also know that it is Domestic Violence awareness month (purple)? Do you talk to your children about the dangers of this? If so, what age do you begin and how do you approach the subject? If not, why not? TY for your input... xoxo  (Oct 11, 2012 | post #1)

Salamanca Trucker Convicted In Abuse Case

"What makes this case particularly troubling is that the defendant, already a convicted rapist, preyed upon members of his own family." what REALLY makes this case particularly troubling is that the parents of these children let him take them in the first place. They should be charged as well.  (Aug 10, 2012 | post #1)

Domestic Violence

i'm glad you found the courage to escape and evolve from a victim to a survivor. it may not be politically correct, but i do believe that a parent that allows their child(ren) to stay in an abusive home should be charged with (at least) endangering the welfare. children need to be kept safe and shouldn't be witness to abuse... most that are, become the abused or the abuser as adults.  (Aug 10, 2012 | post #112)

Domestic Violence

ty. it's not easy to talk about, but nothing will change if we don't. myths about domestic violence need to be exposed. i've never know anyone that has stayed in an abusive situation for sympathy. it may seem that way to others, but i find it hard to imagine. the "courage " and "prancing " may be a defense or coping mechanism. the most dangerous time for a victim is when they try to leave. as far as the native american perspective, i'm white, so i don't know much about that aspect of the culture. however, i do find it hard to believe that it's acceptable. in any case, we need to stop blaming the victim !! xoxo  (Aug 10, 2012 | post #108)

Turn the old Mongillos into Friends of Strays building!!!

The criteria is set for the protection of the homeless pets and is mandatory for their status as an official non profit animal rescue. The cost to adopt is to cover medical (spay/neuter) and housing costs of the pets. Anything above the adoption fee goes towards the care of the next animal waiting for a forever home.  (Jul 27, 2012 | post #20)

Turn the old Mongillos into Friends of Strays building!!!

I used to volunteer for FOS INC. i can tell you that the volunteers put much of their own paychecks towards the cause and want to do the best they can for the homeless pets, so i see no reason that the funds would be used for personal gain. As an official non profit organization, they must keep financial records. i could be wrong, but i believe that anyone can have access to them at anytime. if you are still uncomfortable with cash donations, supplies (food, bedding, litter, etc) are always needed and greatly appreciated. TY !! xoxo  (Jul 27, 2012 | post #19)
