County Fair & Family Fun!

It’s fair time!!!  The Macon County Fair is June 1-10 so this upcoming weekend is your last chance to go enjoy it.  Why not make it a family day?

When children are little it seems that every day is family day.  As the children grow it becomes obvious that there is a great deal of importance of family days that help to build the familial bridges and keep one another in touch with the other. As days become filled with school, work and outside activities it can become rare that the whole family is together to enjoy a meal or watch a favorite show on TV while being in the same room.

When kids are little they completely take advantage of getting to spend so much time with mom and dad.  As they enter school parents begin to revert back to their old ways of doing things and spend less and less time actually being together. They no longer go to the zoo or circus thinking that our children are too old and won’t enjoy it any longer. That is not true!

The importance of family days becomes even more instrumental as children get older. The problem becomes when you try to create a family day you are met with rolling eyes, shrugs and issues because your plans have interfered with theirs. The thing to do is persevere! Force them to go; you are making memories here! Years down the road they will remember and thank you.
Sometimes being together as a family can mean everyone lying around on a weekend morning in their pajamas waiting to eat scrambled eggs and bacon for breakfast.  But this weekend, with the gorgeous sunny forecast and fair available, why not get out and enjoy it?

“have you talked to a trained domestic violence advocate?"

Have you ever had a victim of domestic violence try and open-up to you about their abuse and you not know what to say or how to handle it?...
