Earlier this week, when a 3rd grader asked me whose mother I was, I explained that I was actually a step mom. I went on to explain that the child in question was super lucky because she had a mom AND a step mom.
The little boy was so confused. He said, “but you have to marry her dad” and I confirmed. Confused even more, he said, “but you cannot marry her dad until her mommy dies!”
One of the things that behavior analysts in training are trying to learn is how to keep personal life separate from professional life. This means that being Facebook friends with families whom we serve is not a good idea. Keep in mind that many employers will “Google” you if you are applying for jobs. Make sure that social media doesn’t come back to haunt you. Thanks to The Joy of Tech and Nitrozac & Snaggy for this awesome cartoon!
How did Friday get here so quickly? School starts back for us next week so we are going to try to squeeze every last minute of fun time with our families. In wrapping up our description of a week-long feeding therapy “boot camp”, we thought this cartoon would be perfect! Thanks to Rick Detorie for the wonderful One Big Happy humor.
Readers, what strategies have you tried to distract your children while eating?
You know we are back to our old antics when we resume our Funny Friday posts. We just couldn’t resist this one. We love the men in our lives who are awesome fathers but there is nothing like some good ole ABA to help improve things. Thanks to Real Life Adventures (Lance Aldrich and Gary Wise) for this great cartoon!
Check out the cartoon below! Funny, right? Be sure to come back next week. On Monday, an anonymous reader “asks Missy” about nutritional supplements, see what Missy has to say. On Thursday, we will be reviewing a study on the effects of fish oil as a treatment. Thanks to Close to Home cartoonist, John McPherson, for such a great laugh!
