Is It Okay To Question Your Engagement?

  Is It Okay To Question Your Engagement? If you're one of the people who finds themselves taking the ultimate plunge during this engagement season, congrats! You might be fielding thrilled texts from your friends and family, answering questions about wedding planning (which, good luck), and soaking up every moment of this loved-up time. But after the excitement over hitching your life to someone else's for all of eternity wears off, you may find yourself questioning the whole situation. That can be a seriously alienating feeling, because this is meant to be the happiest time of your life — right?But a major life moment like this is bound to bring up some anxiety.

A mom from Harrow, Ontario, made her two sons walk to school after they were disrespectful to their bus driver. In the post, the boys can be seen holding a sign that says 'Being bad and rude to our busdriver! Windsor mom makes 'rude' sons walk 2 hours to school - www.yahoo.com.

With all the studies about how “traditional” discipline such as yelling and spanking can be harmful to kids, it’s sometimes hard to know how to teach your kids right from wrong.

When a mom from Harrow, Ont. got a call from her two boys’ school about the kids disrespecting their bus driver, the answer was making them walk 7km to school the next day, holding a cardboard sign that read: “Being bad and rude to our bus driver! Moms makin us walk.” [sic] She posted about the punishment on Facebook earlier this week, sharing pictures of her two elementary school-aged boys.

Since she posted the photos, the CBC reported that it had been shared over 38,000 times with many people congratulating her on her disciplinary actions. Other commenters threatened to contact social services. Before we draw any definitive conclusions about her tactics, we have questions.

These Were the Most Googled Health Questions of 2017

  These Were the Most Googled Health Questions of 2017 If you have a major health crisis, you probably shouldn’t be hopping on a search engine for help. And fortunately, according to Google’s list of their top health queries, no one seems to be searching for things like, 'What to do if you contract the Bubonic Plague,' so it seems that people are opting for the professional medical route most of the time.As reported by Daily Mail, these were the top 10 most-searched health questions on Google in 2017:What is the keto diet?What is CTE?What is opioid addiction?What is lupus?

Moms makin us walk '. The mom made her two children walk 7 km , which equals more than four miles, and took them two hours to do. Tina Gatt, manager of community outreach at the CAS office in Windsor-Essex, added that it was a 'logical consequence' to have kids walk to school to show the

For some parents, disciplining a child means sending them to their room -- but one mom found a different way to teach her boys a lesson.

1. Was making the kids walk to school a good idea?

On the one hand, 7km is a bit much for a morning stroll, and expecting kids to be able to focus and learn after such a tiring trek may be too high of an ask. According to the mom’s Facebook post, the walk took over two hours! We’re wondering: how early did the boys have to get up? Were they late for school? Was the tiredness or tardiness worth it make a point?

Also, what does using exercise as a punishment teach the kids? If we’re using physical activity as a consequence, kids may form negative associations with exercise. (This goes hand-in-hand with the risks of using candy as a reward and nurturing a kid’s unhealthy love of sugar.) What kind of message are we sending to kids when we present a morning walk along quite lovely snow-dusted country roads as a horrible alternative to being chauffeured around?

For some parents, disciplining children means sending them to their room — but one mom found a different way to teach her boys a lesson.

So this morning we did a 7 km walk to show them what everyday will be like for them when they get kicked off the bus! S*** just got real for them, two hours later they made it!” Her younger son , however, had to walk a second day (although she refrained from posting photos of that on Facebook).

On the other hand, this punishment seems fairly logical: the kids were being rude to their bus driver, so it makes sense that they lost the privilege of taking the bus to school. Also, the mom walked with the boys the whole way, so there were no safety issues here. The fatigue they felt from walking to school in the cold is something they won’t forget in a hurry, and now they’ve learned: Mom doesn’t make idle threats, so they’d better smarten up, next time they’re thinking of misbehaving.

2. Was the sign really necessary?

Harrow, Ont., is a small town with a population of about 3,000 people. The people driving by the kids on their walk were likely to know the kids and their family. Was it necessary for everyone in town to know that these kids were walking to school as a form of punishment? Couldn’t the walk alone have sufficed? Or is this generation so entitled that they need to be taken down a peg or two, old-school style?

She has punished her kids for making fun of the school bus driver. The kids talked to the bus driver in a rude way and this mom didn’t like the tone and tenor. “That drew the line for me! This morning we did a 7 km walk to show them what everyday will be like for them when they get kicked off the bus

So this morning we did a 7 km walk to show them what everyday will be like for them when they get kicked off the bus! S*** just got real for them, two hours later they made it!” Her younger son , however, had to walk a second day (although she refrained from posting photos of that on Facebook).

3. Why post pictures on Facebook?

To make the shaming matter worse, after morning drop-off the mom posted pictures on social media of her boys on the road with their sign–pictures that went viral. Did she think letting the whole world see the kids do their penance would really teach the boys a lesson, or was she looking for a pat on the back for her parenting decision? Did she weigh up whether or not this decision to go social would actually be teaching her kids that shaming and humiliating people online is a good way to teach them a lesson?

We’re thinking that taking away the bus privileges might have been a smart shock-parenting tactic for these mouthy kids, but adding in the sign and the viral shaming? Nope. Perhaps she could have followed up the long walk simply by teaching the boys how to empathize with the bus driver and see the driver as an actual human being who deserved their respect. What do you think?

Asking My Spouse These 2 Questions Every Week Keeps Our Bond Strong .
Recently, my husband, Marc, and I started testing out a new ritual. We are habit people and find that when we can put key aspects of our connection on autopilot - that is, we get them to happen without having to think too much about making them happen - we find each other more in the slightly chaotic, sometimes harried, often muddled, basket weave that is life. For over a decade, we've carved the habit of a weekly date night into our family blueprint, amassing a dugout of equally delightful and reliable babysitters and teaching our kids that mom and dad time is the norm, no different than morning breakfast or nightly tuck-ins. It's just what we do. This is simply how the Manieri family rolls. Call us overly self-indulgent, but we find that after 13 years of marriage, we'd actually like even more couple time together (gasp!). Sure, we see each other every day, but the bevy of hurried, innocuous, and sometimes snippy interactions Marc and I experience throughout our busy day feel more like baton passes in a relay than anything close to meaningful connection. So we've started the practice of meeting once a week for tea (wine or seltzer works just as well, if that's your fancy). And rather than let the day's headlines or our endless checklist guide our conversation (i.e.
