50 Mums | 50 Kids | 1 Extra Chromosome

I was moved to tears when I saw this video of moms teaching their kids to express their feelings through hand gestures accompanied by a love song…

I’m sharing the video from the original source on YouTube. Credit to the person who created the video.

The mums in this video and the dad who created it ( https://twitter.com/5ushi ) met online and got together to show the world just how ordinary and fun life with the condition is and how they “Wouldn’t Change a Thing”.

It features a carpool karaoke lip sync in support of World Down Syndrome Day 2018 and features 50 mums and their children singing along to Christina Perri’s multi-platinum selling track, “A Thousand Years”. — Wouldn’t Change a Thing

Give Your Kids the Gift of Time

happy family

Whenever special occasions come up, we rack our brains out, trying to figure out the best gift to give our loved ones, most especially our kids. The thing is, we don’t have to wait for a special occasion to give our kids the best gift possible – our time.

We parents do lead busy lives, what with having to juggle work and household chores. We should remember though, that if we want our kids to grow up mentally and emotionally healthy, we should carve out some time to be with them.

For example, if you are enrolled in school or an online degree program yourself, studying together at the table creates memories and bonds relationships.

We don’t need to do anything extravagant for them. They may not verbalize it, but our kids do appreciate it if we sit down to watch their favorite TV show with them, or stop to ask them about how they day in school went. All it takes is a few minutes each day. Set aside some time to do something with them, or listen to them. It will make them feel more loved, secure, and confident to take on the challenges of life.
