...technology that is affordable which can keep costs down for parents who send their kids to college with great difficulty. My nephew had academic issues and his mother could not afford tutoring(in the US). He said a subscription for homework help would help. None of us had ever tried something like that, but he seemed confident. We got him some homework help and it seems to have worked out well for him. Apparently this kind of digital support is widely used in colleges. Well thank heavens its available! Smiley Happy

(trigger warning: reference to self harm)

 

Today, I'm so very grateful for the kindness and compassion of a particular gentle soul/medical practitioner who is helping my daughter with her self harm scars.  

 

My strong, fierce, lovely child has self harm scars and (without going into detail), the specific way she self harmed clearly reflected trauma, pain, and despair.  I can only imagine the judgement  and further pain that my daughter has faced as a result of these scars.


She has requested medical attention to address the appearance of the scars. It seems to be working and for that I am grateful.  However, I am truly truly grateful for/indebted to the angel who is doing these procedures.  She has treated my daughter with such respect and support and, regardless of what the end result is, I am confident that this person's unflinching kindness in the face of my child's scars is healing, in and of itself.
