My kids were reminiscing about my disciplinary tactics, remembering when they would bring home a note from school telling me of some error they made. Usually, it read something like " Haylee needs to mind her own business in Math class and not distract by speaking too much," or, "Hannah had a difficult time due to excessive talking." When this happened, I would have my Chatty Cathy's draw a nice picture on the back of the note with and apology and a promise to try harder. When I retold this story to my girlfriend Melissa, a middle school teacher, she smiled and told me about a "happy file" she keeps that contains many of these types of responses from her students. First, I was glad she had a file like that; second, I'm glad I'm not the only mom who had their children respond this way.

Safety tip. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit, doing their checkbook, or making a list. DON'T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.
