Excerpt: “Next time you see someone struggling to push a stroller with a child, open the door for them; start thanking grocery clerks for their helpfulness; offer to get a morning coffee for a co-worker this week.” @REALatableblog You will love this. 😊http://overcomingsocialanxiety.com/why-being-kind-makes-you-feel-better/

"children whose mothers are sent to prison are more likely than their peers to have future problems." @PreetKGillMP

"The number of children in care has grown by 28% in the past decade, and the number of children at risk of physical, emotional or sexual abuse or neglect has increased by 53%... those most vulnerable children are being let down by a system that is broken." @GwynneMP

If you ever catch yourself thinking this nonsense your next thought should be — this is my opportunity to love & nurture “Simple” and if I can’t do it, get out the way of the people who can 😉 https://twitter.com/suzannezeedyk/status/1229678104664297473

This time 5 years ago I was at my very lowest point. I was sleeping in a park because I had lost everything and everybody in my life. I tried to end my life at the Clyde and someone reached out to me. God bless that man who cared enough and the staff in the homeless unit I was

Trauma caused by a toxic relationship, can only be healed by one or more trusting relationships. The more trust in different areas of life a damaged child has, the more chance there is to rebuild the damaged neural pathways that prevent secure attachment. https://twitter.com/P_H_S_PMH/status/1225441060110946306
