The more voices chorusing it, the more harm. email@example.com dyane April 24, 2016 at 6:58 am - Reply I usually respect any Rand study. As you know, I grew up with kids whose parents (usually fathers, boo, hiss! Not the stay-at-home 70’s moms) worked there. I don’t recall if those kids were geniusus, but most likely their parents were, indeed, among the sharpest knives in the drawer! I’m so pleased to see that Rand did this type of study, which is very meaningful and profound to me. Thanks so much for finding it and sharing it here, my lovely!

Perhaps this is something we should be looking at on a national level? Kitt O'Malley April 23, 2016 at 12:35 pm - Reply Without a doubt! Nurse Kelly April 22, 2016 at 2:15 pm - Reply Love this, Kitt! I was looking at mental health websites last night about stigma as a matter of fact! Too funny! I just wrote a post in honor of National Mental Health Awareness Month, next month, and was looking at info regarding stigma. Took the Stigma-Free Pledge as well! Hope you have a nice weekend 🙂 Kitt O'Malley April 23, 2016 at 12:32 pm - Reply Thank you! Nurse Kelly April 23, 2016 at 3:00 pm - Reply You’re very welcome, Kitt 🙂 Join the conversation.
