Bethany House, A non-profit home for expectant young women

Cindy’s Story
I am very sad to say, I got addicted methamphetamines. I basically quit talking to people I knew growing up and only socialized with fellow drug users. Then, I found myself pregnant and didn’t know what to do because I had nowhere to go, the father was nowhere to be found and couldn’t imagine raising a kid on the streets or by myself. I had gone to a place called Begin Right to get maternity clothes and they had told me about the Bethany House Program.

While participating in the Bethany House Program I learned many things about myself like what kind of mother I wanted to be for my child and how I never wanted to put my daughter in any situations that I had already endured. Those made me realize that I needed to go to school and better myself. With the program’s assistance, I achieved

The Growing Importance Of The Home For Young Consumers

Posted on

A new report by youth marketing experts YPulse titled “No Place Like Home” provides significant new insights on how the Covid pandemic has changed how Gen Z and Millennials view the homes. The following statement summarizes key findings: “As young people look to their spaces as mental health retreats, at-home items and services that comfort, declutter, or foster a feeling of escape that from the outside world will resonate.”  The opportunities for marketers are clear and will be elaborated on below.

YPulse previously observed that millennials have homebody tendencies, with a majority preferring to go to a  café or watch Netfix at home as opposed to going to a party on a Saturday night. A recent survey confirms that this sentiment was present even prior to the pandemic, with, “…67% of 19-37 year olds telling YPulse in January this year

Was a Transgender Woman Convicted for Raping a Young Girl in a Bathroom?

Posted on

In mid-October 2017, conservative journalists and bloggers sought to link a case of child sexual abuse to an ongoing debate about allowing transgender people to use the public restroom that matches their gender. Proponents of so-called “bathroom bills”, legislating that transgender people must use the restroom of the sex assigned to them at birth, have spuriously argued that transgender women’s use of women’s restrooms puts children in danger of sexual abuse.  

The story was typically titled something like “Transgender Wyoming woman convicted of sexually assaulting 10-year-old girl in bathroom,” and it was repeated by Daily Caller, Daily Wire, Red Flag News, Silence is Consent, Fox News, and Louder With Crowder. The latter site claimed that the alleged assault was a direct consequence of bills allowing transgender people to use the bathrooms that correspond to their gender identity:

There’s a special place in fiery pits of hell for people who molest

5 Bathroom Safety Tips for Infants & Young Children

Posted on

​The simplest way to avoid bathroom injuries is to make this room inaccessible unless your child is accompanied by an adult. This may mean installing a latch on the door at adult height so the child can’t get into the bathroom when you aren’t around. Also, be sure any lock on the door can be unlocked from the outside, just in case your child locks him or herself in.

Simple Tips to Childproof Your Bathroom & Prevent Injuries

  1. Supervision: Children can drown in only a few inches of water, so never leave a young child alone in the bath, even for a moment. If you can’t ignore the doorbell or the phone, wrap your child in a towel and take him along when you go to answer them. Bath seats and rings are meant to be bathing aids and will not prevent drowning if the child is left unattended. Never

Will coronavirus survive airborne? Are young people safe? Do face masks protect me? Are men more likely to die? Burning questions on COVID-19

Posted on

Some outlandish rumors about COVID-19, the disease caused by the new virus SARS-CoV-2, still persist, and continue to percolate on the internet: To some, it’s a dastardly bioweapon designed to wreak economic armageddon on the West; a left-wing conspiracy to damage the reelection prospects of President Trump; a virus that leaked from a Wuhan laboratory.

Such paranoid speculation is at the very least unhelpful, health professionals say, and only serves to politicize a global public-health emergency and distract from potentially life-saving measures to contain and/or slow the spread of coronavirus. After reportedly jumping from animals to humans at a food market in Wuhan, China in early December or before.
