I think abuse should be categorized as when the child is harmed in any way. If no one's home the obvious will happen, they move on to the next home. I don't understand why someone would refuse to open the door if they have nothing to hide. If you're busy, explain your busy. I think it's targeted toward the children who are being hurt constantly such as Nia Glassie. I'm sure if there was a unscheduled visit with her they would have seen something was wrong. Even if it means they need to see 1000 children to find that one hurt, struggling child then I will say it is worth it. Of course it isn't going to 'catch' those parents who lash out one time. Nothing is going to prevent that. I think this strategy is targeted towards the ongoing abuse that is killing some children. Sometimes the abuse is happening because some people are horrid people. I don't see how we can fix this. To be honest, I think it would be very hard to put in place this kind of monitoring but I think it's a step...

Oh darn it! I thought it was going to be a positive with all of your symptoms. Good luck with your next cycle
So a coroner has recommended that children under 5 years are to be monitored and plunket visits become compulsory and includes unscheduled visits. This idea has been branded 'over the top' and that it will be 'widely rejected by parents'. But I think it's a great idea! If a few unscheduled visits means it'll save poor children of domestic abuse, why not? I think it's the community's job to look after children as they can't look after themselves in those situations. Just wondering if anyone disagrees with this?
Aren't girls supposed to have faster heart beats? I was told by the heart beat that my DS was a girl. I would go by the ultrasound scan, personally.
I'd love to be able to wash my clothes like that... I CDF'd though. I wash around 2 loads a day and put them straight into the drier. I haven't used my washing line for the last 2 months and I don't separate the whites with the coloured clothes (our whites always go grey! lol). My laundry room constantly has clothes on the floor and I don't fold my DF's clothes anymore because I felt he wasn't grateful () so I chuck his clean clothes in the basket in the laundry. Jeesuz... I just realized how slack I've been lately. LOL.
Oops... Posted in the wrong one. lol.
Hey... May I ask how you went? Was it positive?
So sorry about your grandpa, it's nice how you're going to name your child after him. I loove Gemma! I don't think I would associate it with Jim though. Gemima (pronounced as jim-eye-ma) is a bit closer but I don't know if I like that name, personally. Good luck
Well here's hoping, aye! I'm sure everything will be fine Hope you get some good news tomorrow
No one can top this one for being the most unromantic proposal of all time. We walked pass Michael Hill one day while out shopping and I was window shopping. I saw a ring I loooved and told him that when he proposes I want one like that. He said 'we can get it now if you want' and I said 'yeah, alright'. He then signed the finance papers and I picked it up a couple of days later when it was resized. It's OK though, I hate cheesiness and I cringed when I saw my brother propose to his DF. I can't help it. Soo funny but that's typical of something we'd do. We are so far away from traditional
