Sheffield pub has perfect response after parent asks to come inside with disabled son – The Star

A Sheffield pub had the perfect response when a parent asked if he could bring his wheelchair bound son inside.

The Barrel Chapeltown took to Facebook to reveal how the man came in and asked if they would be allowed to remain in the pub.

He warned staff that his child ‘sometimes makes loud noises and waves his arms about’, and that people have ‘made comments’ in the past.

In an emotional post on Facebook, the pub said it broke their heart that a parent would need to ask if they could bring their child inside.

The pub posted: “My intention is not to embarrass the parent who I spoke to yesterday, it has played on my mind all night about how this man must have felt asking me if his child would be accepted in here. It then got me thinking about how many other people must be in the same position

Maija Mattila- Mixed Race Model With Downs

It is good that Maija is realising her dream and acknowledged the barriers before her to which she managed to overcome.

Modeling is not an easy experience for anyone, but even with all her additional barriers Maija came through.

I wish her well for the future.

Same Difference

When a mixed-race girl with Down’s syndrome sat down to watch Finland’s Next Top Model, it might have seemed a distant world. But for Maija Mattila, it started the dream that changed her life.

Maija watched in awe as the tall, dark, aspiring model walked in front of judges of the reality TV show and posed for the camera. This was Polina Hiekkala, and she was doing everything Maija wanted to do.

Maija’s hazel brown eyes light up when she talks about modelling.

The young Finnish-Nigerian woman explains how she has watched countless hours of catwalk videos on YouTube since being inspired by Hiekkala in 2012.

“I started practising my walk at home, in front of the mirror,” she says.

Maija, who was born with Down’s syndrome and is now 20, leans gently against her mother and laughs shyly when recalling her early steps towards a modelling career.

Her mother…

The astonishing volunteers who stayed up all night to help drivers stuck on M62

I was one of those drivers stuck in traffic on Thursday 1 March 2018 just off Junction 21 of the M62.

The vehicles were approaching from all directions and movement was minimal due this volume traffic, in fact in one half period at 10pm I move no more than 100 yards.

This was horrendous but out of apparently nowhere came people from this multi-racial community offering food and drinks to the drivers going nowhere. I myself was on Shaw Road, Newhey. This was a sight from ‘Heaven’ and was exceedingly welcome.

I applaud the freely given community spirit and it is good to know that when the’chips are down’ the local community is willing to look after strangers in their mist.

Thank you to all who took part and hopefully when the M62 was reopened on Saturday March 2018 they took advantage and took a well earned rest for what was left of the weekend.

Sainsbury’s praised for helping worker with Alzheimer’s keep job : Mail Online

The son of a Sainsbury’s worker diagnosed with Alzheimer’s five years ago has revealed in an ‘uplifting’ post on social media how the supermarket giant fought to keep her job open and handled her condition with ‘compassion, class and dignity’.

Doron Salomon, who works for a football agency, has seen his emotional thread praising Sainbury’s go viral after he detailed the lengths staff at the store, in Harrow, North London, went to to keep his mother, who he doesn’t want to name, employed in a job she loves.

Doron says the supermarket has helped to ‘normalise’ his mother’s life over the last few years as her illness has deteriorated, giving her self-worth when ‘she was quite literally losing everything she once was’

The supermarket chain told MailOnline their former employee had been an ‘inspiration’.

How to Discipline a Child With ADHD (with Pictures) – wikiHow

Nurturing a child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be very difficult, as they need distinctive discipline techniques that are not the same as other children. Otherwise, you may risk unnecessarily excusing your child’s behavior, or become too severe in punishment; you must perform the intricate task of balancing between these two extremes. Experts in managing children with ADHD confirm that disciplining such children can be a challenging job. However, parents, caregivers, teachers, and others can discipline their children with ADHD based on patience and consistency.[1]
