Looking at Autism from “The Other Side”
Years ago, when I was struggling to accept my oldest daughter Katie’s diagnosis of high functioning autism (“Why our kid, Mike? Why does she have to be different? It’s so not fair!”), I picked up a book that changed my life. The book, Autism and the God Connection by Bill Stillman, illustrates the sensitivities and spiritual giftedness shown by some people with autism. (Psychology Today)

Socializing to Be Thin: Facebook Linked to Eating Disorders
A recently published study by researchers at the University of Haifa found that teenage girls who frequent Facebook are more likely to develop a negative body image that can result in the onset of eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and exaggerated dieting. Additionally, adolescent girls exhibited lower levels of personal empowerment and self confidence. These findings suggest that social networking sites play as vital a role in the prevalence of eating disorders as traditional media outlets such as magazines, TV, and print ads. (Psychology Today)
