"We will be focusing on the affects children have when having to/or being forced to ignore the existence of a Grandparent".
This plays a significant role in the lives of children. This study also indicates that the Grandparents role iris a integral part of their self identity. When the role of Grandparents is removed the physical and emotional affects are severe resulting in psychological consequences....
We as Grandparents have to fight our Legislature to protect and change our so called "grandparents rights to visitation" this law is redundant and protects no one.
If the courts considers "the best interest of the child" they would understand the pros and cons of how increased parent-grandparent conflicts will NEGATIVELY impact the child... versus the POSITIVE impact of the child of having a relationship with the Grandparent.
Thanks for your support.

Do you want to help STOP further ways for convicted criminals and hackers to intrude into our families & social circles?
The effects that something like Facebook has on all our societies, throughout many countries and their cultures, is of great importance.
When we consider major issues in our legal systems, communities & countries as a whole, we obtain an already gray picture that seems to continuously fade into black. This blackness represents our values, standards and human rights as a whole.
Facebook (as nieve as we all sometimes are) is damaging our lives from something as small as persistent messages and advertisment, right the way through to the biggest issues such as data protection, child abuse, rape & MURDER!
I'm not sure is you have noticed but this "ever growing" culture that insights all kinds of marriage/relationship break-ups and even bullying in our schools, is slowly taking over our general way of life. The schemes that facebook presents are most evil as they come in forms of entertainment and communication, very subtly sucking in our children, wives, husbands, fathers, & mothers to spend increasing amounts of time "stuck" the screen, presenting ever more tempting opportunities for people to indulge themselves in fantasies (good/bad) which have huge side affects. Boundaries according to cultural and sociological criteria shouldn't be broken by way of deliberately enticing people to do so just to line their own pockets.
I feel these affects need to be addressed and considered when deciding the functionality of something thats so easy to cease but can obtain uncontrollable amounts of power......I'm not 100% religiously inclined in any direction but I know...
If there is a Devil, Facebook would definitely be a useful tool for the destruction of society as we know it.
In the United States, the legal age of majority is eighteen. The day a young man or woman turns eighteen, they are given many responsibilities. They can vote for the country's next president. They can get a tattoo. They can do sentences in jail. They can also chose and even be forced to go to war.
There is only one thing that legal “adults” in the United States cannot do, however, and that is consume alcohol. Alcohol and its consumption are widely integrated into many social aspects of our country, where most social gatherings in the United States are not without the presence of alcohol.
The government labels eighteen year olds as responsible adults, yet tells them they are too irresponsible to be able to consume alcohol. There is however, a better alternative to denying persons under the age of 21 to drink. Educating the young population of the United States through alcohol awareness courses is a workable alternative to the high drinking age.
Teenagers are eligible to receive a learner’s permit to drive at the age of fifteen. In Florida, teenagers at age fifteen can drive at any time, however they must be accompanied with a licensed adult at all times. At age sixteen, teenagers can drive without adults, however their curfew for operating a motor vehicle is at eleven o’ clock. Seventeen year olds are allowed to drive for two hours later than sixteen year olds, and eighteen year old adults have no restrictions. These restrictions were put in place in attempts to teach teenagers to drive instead of throwing them on their faces in the roaring interstates and highways. This would be a great idea for drinkers as well.
Seventeen year olds would drink only with adults, eighteen year olds would have restrictions, nineteen year olds would have fewer restrictions than eighteen year olds while twenty year olds would have even less restriction than nineteen year olds. By the time young men and women are 21 years old, alcohol would not be as taboo, and binge drinking may not be as much of a problem overall.
We 400 million Urban residents of India are constantly barraged by unwanted intrusive traffic noises, especially honking 24/7.
It severely affects our health and well being.
It has enormous, immeasurable cascading deleterious effects on the entire society.
We beg for enforced Silence.
The 10,000 children in the care of the Province of BC ,living in approximately 4,000 foster homes and group homes deserve to live in a smoke-free environment.
In addition to the 4,000 chemicals and 40 known carcinogens in second-hand smoke, exposure also affects learning and behavioral development. Second-hand smoke leads to problems ranging from ear infections, asthma and increased crib deaths to bronchial conditions, respiratory conditions and some types of cancer.
We want laws to protect innocent children from the adverse affects of second hand smoke to be put in place as soon as possible. As concerned mothers, we demand this for each and every child in foster care in the Province of British Columbia.
I would like to make everyone aware of a disease/disorder that most people do not even know about unless they are around some one who has it or there are an educated medical professional. Many people are misdiagnosed and are going through terrible times because they might not even know what they have. It is reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), and affects the sympathetic nervous system. It can make people unable to do anything and live every second of every day in terrible pain. The disease can be traced back to the civil war. I myself have had it since was age 11 and that was just when i was finally diagnosed over at Stanford University. Here in my area they wanted to cut my nerves leading to my leg. I ask everyone to do some research and spread the knowlege and get programs and support groups going.
