Last week, Dateline ran a special called ‘My Kid Would Never Do That‘ which focused on ‘Stranger Danger’. I watched the preview for it a few days earlier, and it seemed interesting and set it to DVR. I finally watched it yesterday, and thought it was well done.
I’d recommend it to all, especially those of you with young children!
It was very realistic, and showed how vulnerable young kids are because they can be convinced so easily. It also showed a few strong minded kids who did a great job handling the situation. Overall, it was scary to think what could happen in the ‘real world’ situation, rather than this controlled setting.
I’ve attached links for the video below. The bad part is that the archive online for it is in six parts.
If I find one link for the whole video, I’ll post that. If someone finds it, please email it to me or leave it as a comment here and I’ll update it!
What’s the second best thing to BBQing outside? Grilling chicken inside.
P.S. This post is a part of my “What’s for Dinner” series, where I share what I’ve been cooking and my recipes. Grab and share my button:
I’ve had soda only twice in the past month (maybe longer… the time frame is probably longer but I am not sure exactly how much longer so I’ll leave it at that).
If you are thinking “so what?!”, here’s what:
While I don’t think I was ever addicted to soda, I was a fan. Had it every time I went out to eat (with a few exceptions). Had it at parties. And had it at home (sometimes even a few times a week if we had it). If we had it at home, I drank it. If we didn’t, it didn’t bother me.
When all of this started, I didn’t even turn down soda intentionally. It just sort of happened. Preferring water over soda. Even at parties and when out for dinner. When I realized I was doing well not drinking soda, I started making a conscious effort to try and limit it (or avoid it). While I have been tempted a few times, it hasn’t bothered me yet. I’ve always loved water, so replacing soda with water has worked well for me so far.
I’ve gone out to eat several times, hosted a BBQ party at my house, hung out with cousins for a few days all in the last week or so — and I thought I’d end up at least having a little bit. I wasn’t even opposed to having a little bit, but I still didn’t cave!
While I don’t plan on abstaining from it totally (because I know in that route I don’t think I’ll last too long), I do plan on limiting it for sure to just occasionally. I’ll have to see how long this lasts.
