Kidzworld Kitchen: Fall Food

If there is one positive thing about the summer coming to an end it is that the beautiful season of fall is beginning.

Fall means cozy sweaters, Thanksgiving, football, falling leaves and hearty, delicious fruits and vegetables! Squashes, apples, carrots, beets, artichokes, cranberries and much more are at their peak right now so take advantage by trying these recipe ideas. A healthy soup is a great lunch or dinner that will warm you up and get you your daily veggies servings. And what better way to enjoy the crisp weather than sipping on a hot cup of apple cider with a warm pumpkin cookie on the side!

my ex is going through the same thing. Call the police now. Things will get out of hand. My brothers friend has been living with us for about 2 weeks becuz his dad punched him in the face. Call 911 now. They will help you. Just say you have been abused by your family member and they will take it from there. If you want, add me and we can talk

If you are getting abused to the point where you bleed, call the police immediately. This isn't acceptable behavior.

Hey, Just wanted some advice to help me on what to do on this. Ever since I was 3 I've been both Verbally, Mentally, And Physically abused. To me, this is normal since it's been happening for so long. But I just can't take this thing anymore. When I get home I always get yelled at for no reason. I have been on Anti-Depressants for the past 1-2 years. Been going to counseling for 6-7 years for family. Nothing has changed yet. I just need help on how to handle this. Thanks.

I'm an older sister to a 13 year old brother. Neither of us really agree on much, either. I prefer this, he prefers that. I prefer that, he prefers this. It's natural regarding age differences. Even just a years worth can hold plenty. It's best to meet in the middle with things. Like, my brother and I for instance don't really agree on anything. But, it's good to meet somewhere with things to do together whether its agreeing on a movie to watch or playing a video-game together. Even drawing or helping each other out with something. Just keep in mind, when it comes to this, you won't always want to do what they want.
