    It pains me to think you think this is a hoax. If only. From what I hear it’s much more common than is spoken of. I gained a lot during pregnancy, and then lost a lot. I guess I was wondering what is the “cutoff point” at which point a husband can say “I don’t like fat women with big thighs” and the woman has to look at herself and say”he’s right, he has a right to reject me”.

    Fix it up

    I do agree with you, however recommending someone isn’t saying someone else is bad. I think it’s ok to say if someone did a good job. Maybe I shouldn’t have asked about specific people. I named those I heard good things about (which does not indicate that those not mentioned are bad/ just unfamiliar to the writer, as yet).

    Gloria has been there for years. She works in a salon in long island (John Louis David).

    With all the heartache this family has had to endure, I would not think it so terrible to help give them a little menuchas hanefesh, even if the money were collected to help ensure the financial future of their other children, (ad meah v’esrim shana). Although it is true that there are many competent therapists who accept insurance, there are issues with caps on therapy sessions allowed per year (and then the therapist has to begin explaining and requesting overrides on those caps) aside from the fact that the therapists who may be most skillful or trained in grief counseling and post traumatic stress disorder could likely not take insurance. Should we deny these people this option/need? Moreover, even if this family has a source of income in general, there may never be a more prudent time for them to stay home and work together on getting through this, r”l.

    Gloria (haircutter) at Claire accihair is a very good hairdresser. She cuts hair professionally in a salon, and will cut a wig from anywhere for you.

    Does anyone know anything about the shaitels at Esther Aron( Brooklyn) or Yali’s in cedarhurst?

    My husband and I have a fundamental disagreement in belief about hashgacha pratis. I believe that people, each individual has his/her own hashgacha (as sad as it is, that it isn’t coincidental that of all those blocks, the first one he chose to approach someone for help on, turned out to be the one with a mentally ill potential killer), whereas, my husband believes only nations and leaders merit to have this (that things just happen, without divine intervention). This only serves to anger him more, causing him to say “g-d has a lot of explaining to do”. Whereas, I, horrified, saddened and bewildered about this event, am left only to accept this as Hash-em’s will. I just can’t imagine that there was “tzimtzum” going on here . It would just seem too much like a parent abandoning a child.

    Washing my clothing in a laundromat, I took my focus off my 3 year old for several minutes, during which time he was busy playing nearby in an area with video games. Within minutes, I heard horrible screaming, only to find him with his fingers stuck inside a door that had closed on his hand. I foolishly trusted that he’d be safe, for just those few minutes. I should have put him in the stroller and let him scream from frustration.

    A friend of mine saw several young children sitting outside their house alone, without adult supervision. She approached the children and asked where their mommy was (inside, sleeping).

    She called the mother out, and pointed out the dangers of leaving young children unattended.

    Regarding the bathroom issue, I would take my boys with me regardless of how other women feel. Women’s rooms have closed stalls, so in my opinion, any shame others may feel is surmounted by my desire to keep my family safe.

    I would add, a woman WITH CHILDREN.

    I would also suggest, from personal experience, that children be taught to go into a store and tell an employee they need help.

    I was once followed as a ten year old child by a group of scary looking teenagers. I went into a store and told the man working there what was happening. He gave me the phone and told me to call my parents. Any place that’s populated where others can see the presence of the child and their interactions with adults is ideal.
