Edenvale Shoppes Enters Into Relationship with ICRA to Further the Efforts of Providing a Safe Internet Experience

Green Bay, WI (PRWEB) July 5, 2007

Edenvale Shoppes announced today that it has entered into a relationship with ICRA to further the efforts of providing a safe internet experience.

“In addition to current measures such as Hacker Safe and Yahoo Secure Shopping that provide shopping and viewing security and reliability for our customers, we feel that users of the internet need the ability to determine what they are exposed to,” said Jesse Akre, President of Edenvale Shoppes. “The ability to label a site’s content as safe for viewing — void of any solicitations or materials that are considered offensive or vulgar, we feel is key at driving the continuous evolution of a save internet experience for all users, minor and adult. Leading internet safety advocate sites such as Netsmartz.org endorse the ICRA as a must have for internet content measurement and exposure.”

Internet safety is a growing concern. Recently, The FBI listed their top tips for child and teen internet safety.

There are some very important things that you need to keep in mind when you’re on your computer at home or at school.

Witnessing How an Uncommon Relationship Evolves Into an Extended Loving Family

Ashley, IN (PRWEB) May 17, 2011

Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider announced today the release of Two Plus Two Is One by Serenity James. Foster parents, foster children, care, love, and happiness intertwine in this touching read.

In the United States, the National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections estimates that there are 424,000 children currently in out of home care. Two plus Two is One follows the biological family of Deidre, Theo, Teddy, and Ellie, as through a crisis they meet the foster parents Serenity and Jared. As two children navigate the circumstances that lead to their adventure, readers will see how an uncommon relationship evolves into an extended loving family.

This journey that I have attempted to share continues today with Ellie, Teddy, Deidre, and Theo. We recently shared the joy of them purchasing their first home. Now we laugh about what well plant this year and preserve for the winter. This past Christmas season, we made cookies together, and Deidre shared never having had this experience before. We have truly become part of each others lives, the author shares.

Dedicated to those teams of people who held the authors family up and kept them moving forward, Two Plus Two Is One is a journey of what can happen when both sets of parents choose to open themselves to the needs of the children.

About the Author

Serenity James is a pseudonym as all of the names within this story, to protect the identities of those involved. The writer and her husband had been foster parents for a period of nine years, and had been named Foster Parents of the Year during that time with their Child Placement Agency.

The writer additionally holds a BA in Social Work, has worked with special needs children, and adults in various positions for an additional ten years. Her experience with foster children began in earnest with her marriage to her husband who had been a foster youth for eight years. It was through this relationship that she became critically aware of the plight of those who have lived in out of home placements, and the lasting scars that are a part of their personality from the losses they endure.

Legal Expert on Relationships opens Mediation Practice Author of three books on relationship issues now available as a private family law mediator

(PRWEB) April 7, 2004

Legal Expert on Relationships opens Mediation Practice Author of three books on relationship issues now available as a private family law mediator.

Out-of-control expenses. Lengthy delays. Emotional trauma. Cookie-cutter solutions to unique problems. All symptoms of traditional divorce litigation, a brutal system for solving the problems of the most intimate relationships of your life.

After increasing dissatisfaction with the ability of the system to serve her clients, Johnette Duff, Attorney at Law, first turned to educating the public by writing The Spousal Equivalent Handbook: a legal and financial guide to living together, The Marriage Handbook: a legal and financial guide to your spousal rights, and Love After 50: the complete legal and financial guide . Ms. Duff has been featured on Today, Good Morning America, in The Wall Street Journal, Self, New Woman, Smart Money and Modern Maturity and has been a guest on numerous radio talk shows.

Mediation took her crusade a step further. Mediation is faster, cheaper, and arguably more healing than a court battle. After successfully mediating family law disputes in conjunction with her law practice in Texas, Ms. Duff has re-located to Southern California and turned her energies to her website http://www.loveandthelaw.com and private mediations, abandoning the courtroom in her ongoing efforts to help couples find solutions.

A mediator is a neutral third party who can ask incisive questions, cut through the anger and the hurt, and facilitate a more rational decision-making process. Mediation can be particularly beneficial when children are involved. Since spouses can’t just walk away from each other, and must learn to re-relate to each other as co-parents, adversarial litigation only exacerbates this process.

Ms. Duff brings interpersonal and communication skills to the table, along with her extensive experience. The combination can help couples (and their attorneys, if appropriate) bring active input to an agreement, allowing control of decisions impacting their lives for years to come.

Ms. Duff also has unusual experience in what has been called “the capital punishment” of family law: parental termination. She was a founder under a Children’s Justice Act grant to the 306th District Court in Galveston to mediate Children’s Protective Services cases both upon initial pickup and again prior to termination, working closely with the court, CPS administrators and the District Attorney. During her eighteen-month involvement in this project, Ms. Duff successfully mediated all but one of the cases she received after initial removal of the child from the home – and in that case, the judge returned the child the next day after deeming the pickup inappropriate.
