What is NaNoWrMo, you ask?

Let the writing begin

Let the writing begin

NaNoWrMo starts today. What is NaNoWrMo, you ask. It is National Write a Novel in a Month. It was started by a group of College friends in Berkeley, California in 1999.

Before I let them tell you about themselves, I want you to know that this is my third year to participate. I feel the most organized and ready to write my novel.

My novel is called; “They Paved our way: Ancestors that helped shape a Nation.”

I will be posting snippets of what I write over the next month; about the journeys of some of my ancestors that help grow this  nation to the country it is today.

Now here is NaNoWriMo’s story in their words.

They can tell their story best. Hers is what they say from the NaNoWriMo Facebook page.

Company Overview

One month. One book. An adventure you’ll never forget. There’s a novel inside you waiting for you to discover it, and we’re here to help. Join us for NaNoWriMo, Camp NaNoWriMo, and the Young Writers Program, and we’ll guide you through the whole process with pep talks, encouragement, and a literary party the likes of which you’ve never seen.

Sign up today to become part of the largest writing community in the world. You won’t believe the things you can accomplish with a deadline, some friends to cheer you on, and occasionally excessive quantities of caffeine.

November not a good month for you, or have more than one novel wanting to get onto the page? Join us at Camp NaNoWriMo, our newest event, where all the encouragement of NaNoWriMo meets the light hearted whimsy of a virtual camp.

Working with students under 18, or a student yourself? Come on over to the Young Writers Program, where we’ve got flexible word-count goals, a community just for kids and teens, and curriculum and resources to help you teach NaNoWriMo.

Dennis the Menace: Coping with Family Stress

Coping with Family Stress

Dennis the Menace: Coping with Family Stress

I have been given permission by Mental Health America (formally known as, National Mental Health Association) to post the entire Booklet. Thank you Antionette. She was the lovely young lady who assisted me today in that permission.

I hope you find the an enjoyable way to reduce your Family Stress. This was originally published and put in National newspapers in 1981. I have kept my copy, that I now share with you.

I will be transcribing the basic text, not the cartoon text that goes with the photographs on each page. The comic strip and words work best as a unit.

Stress is not a Disease

Stress is not a Disease

STRESS

Is not a disease. Stress is normal. Stress is a part of our lives… Where we live, where we work, and even where we play.

When children are involved, the tension is magnified. Parents can get very angry and sometimes everyone suffers.

WE PARENTS

Must recognize how stress affects our families and learn to cope with it. Because children see and react to their world differently, they often cause stress to their parents. The question is: How to handle family stress? Here are some suggestions…

 

A Reminder or Two

A Reminder or Two

A REMINDER …

We can’t keep stress out of our lives, but showing affection is a way to reduce stress. We can let our children know that we love them…OFTEN!

…OR TWO.

Youngsters learn by example. Our affection for each other can be a lesson-in-living for our children.

 

Stress Point:

Stress Point:

STRESS POINT:

Our frustrations – in trying to get something done, for example, – can spill over and affect the way our children fell about themselves.

A Solution:

A Solution:

A SOLUTION:

When children feel neglected, they may go to extremes to get our attention. If we can’t include them in what we’re doing, we can explain to them that we’ll get together with them when we’re free to do so.

Stress Point #2:

Stress Point #2:

STRESS POINT:

When children are deeply involved in some activity, it may be literally impossible for them to pay attention to us.

 

A  Solution #2:

A Solution #2:

A SOLUTION:

We need to pause and reflect when we get upset at our children – - BEFORE we act.

 

Stress Point #3:

Stress Point #3:

STRESS POINT:

Probably more meals are ruined at the table than on the stove. Our nagging might be impolite as their sloppy eating.

 

A Solution #3

A Solution #3

A SOLUTION:

Even mother puts her elbows on the table occasionally! It takes time for youngsters to become adults – in table manners as in everything else. And they probably  learn more from what we do than what we say.

 

Stress Point #4

Stress Point #4

 

STRESS POINT:

Being a parent means a lot of sharing and not a lot of time alone. Dads can find their quiet times… For mothers it may not be so easy.

 

Solution #4

Solution #4

A SOLUTION:

We can give each other a break. It’s important to have some time alone if we expect to be able to cope with stress.

 

Stress Point #5

Stress Point #5

STRESS POINT:

Stress often flares up when children won’t cooperate… Take their own sweet time…Won’t do what they’re told…

 

Solution #5

Solution #5

A SOLUTION:

…But sometimes children may surprise us by doing what we want in THEIR OWN WAY.

They can have good ideas, and even when the ideas aren’t so good, there’s no better cure for stress than a good laugh!

 

Stress Point #6

One tip:

ONE TIP…

We shouldn’t be surprised when our “adult” problems cause stress to our children.

…AND ANOTHER

We can share our problems with other parents who have been “though the mill.” We can reach out to a neighbor, pastor, doctor, or relative for support.

 

We can all make it together

We can all make it together

WE CAN ALL MAKE IT TOGETHER WITH EACH OTHER’S HELP.

 

Dennis the Menace coping with family stress was prepared under contract No. HHS-105-80-C-066 with the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect, Children’s Bureau, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, March 1981.

Mental Health America (National Mental Health Association)

Mental Health America (National Mental Health Association)

 

A message from the Mental Health America (formally known as National Mental Health Association)

This booklet is one part of a national effort to prevent child abuse and neglect. A conservative estimate is that one million children are abused or neglected by their parents or caregivers in this country every year. As many as 2,000 die as a result of maltreatment.

Most child abuse and neglect is not caused by inhuman, hatefuul intent on the part of parents. Rather, it is the result of a combination of factors, including both accumulation of stresses on families and unmet needs of parents for support in coping with their child-rearing responsibilities.

Most child abuse and neglect can be prevented:

~If parents can reach out for the help they need to cope with the stresses in their lives.

~If professionals and agencies that provide services to families can be attentive to families who are having particular difficulties in the demanding task of raising their children.

~If communities can support preventative programs to help families in stress.
