Curly hair is often considered a nuisance for those who have it, but its true potential is far more varied than straight hair can be. Unfortunately for curly haired children, their minority status can see them subject to bullying and derision. As such, it is important that this is counterbalanced with positive messages. As the media cannot be relied upon to show curly hair in a positive light, people have been left looking for alternatives, and Curl Centric has provided one. They have just published a new Natural Hair Coloring Book for children with curly hair.

Kids are known to be naturally inquisitive. They enjoy new experiences and discovering things unknown to them. Judy Belletti, the co-founder of 3D Learning Group, firmly believes that it is much easier to engage children with visual learning rather than asking children to memorize vocabulary from a list. This concept has led Judy and her team to create the company's first endeavor, Bright World eBooks. The eBooks will be a complete 3D reading experience where children will be given the opportunity to access learning tools that are as engaging and entertaining as a video game or movie.
Pregnancy loss can be an extremely sad and stressful experience regardless of how it happens.

Safe Ride 4 Kids has started this project to change this scenario by presenting the caregivers an easy way to share information with their clients.

Maceau Law (maceaulaw.com/family-lawyers/) works to help men who find they are in this situation.
