During the festive season, we can get caught up in the frenzy of buying the perfect gift for our little ones. However, there's nothing more precious than time spent with loved ones! 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦🕙💛

Remember children may have fun with new toys or think they need the latest gadget, but they’ll always get more value out of spending quality time with family and friends who love them, both in the moment and for long afterward in their memory.

We set the stage for how our kids expect to be spoken to as adults. If the expectation based on their interactions with us is that they deserve to be spoken down to, criticized, and mistrusted, then that is what they will expect to deserve in the future. But if we're speaking to them respectfully, kindly and compassionately, that, too, is what they will expect to deserve from their future friends/partners.

That doesn't mean we're perfect and don't mess up. But what we're striving for is to make those moments more the exception than the norm.

And the foundation for how we speak to our kids starts with the way we speak to ourselves. You cannot berate and talk down to yourself all day and not expect that to eventually spill out on to your child. If you need help, we’re available for mental health resources, free parenting education, assistance programs, and more. (775) 753-7352

It’s #WorldAIDSday, a day to tackle HIV/AIDS stigma, raise awareness, and remember those lost.

We wanted to share this info from Nevada Health Centers: Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) is an effective way to prevent HIV infection, but accessing it can be a challenge for many. Lack of awareness, social stigma, and lack of financial resources are barriers that can prevent Nevadans from benefitting from PrEP.

With support from @HRSAgov, @HHSgov, and other generous donors, Nevada Health Centers offers the Ready, Set, PrEP program and provides free HIV education, testing, PrEP medication, and care coordination for qualified Nevadans at risk of acquiring HIV.

The program expands access to these important healthcare services to help reduce the number of new HIV transmissions in the state and to bring us closer to ending the global HIV epidemic. Check for the location of a Nevada Health Center closest to you for assistance.
