Halloween can be a scary time for some children. Attractions, decorations, costumes, haunted houses, parks and even trick or treating can stir up intense fear. When you have a terrified child on your hands, it can be difficult for them and your entire family to enjoy the popular holiday. Consider taking these few steps, and perhaps you can minimize their concerns before October 31 arrives.

1. Quit the Teasing

Story of My Healing Wound- Playing by the Rules

Posted 10-21-2014 at 10:31 AM by RABG (Story of my Healing Wound - the Surgery)

I have been trying to live by the rules Dr.PS laid out for me. On the surface they seem great, I can drive, go to visit people that live 1.5 hours away, sit for 20 minutes every hour.

Story of My Healing Wound - Back-Up

Posted 10-15-2014 at 02:38 PM by RABG (Story of my Healing Wound - the Surgery)

How often do we leave the doctors office feeling we understand each other but on second thought we don't. I have written on many occasions that I re-read my posts frequently just to refresh what I was thinking. Sometimes I apologize for unkind words, or a obnoxious attitude.
On this occasion I was reading my previous post.Well now how things change; I need to back - up and call the doctor. Let me admit right here is that I always want to get out of the doctors office quickly. It doesn't...
