Are you still looking for alternatives to the traditional sugar gorge for Halloween this year? Hop over to Halloween Candy Alternatives at Natural Parents Network – I’ve listed some trick-or-treating alternatives, many different healthy food or non-food options to candy, and a few “candy trade-in” ideas in case you end up with a pumpkin full of sweets. Enjoy!


I am teaming up with Jen, who writes at The Dinoia Family, and Sarah, who writes at Balancing Act, for a four part series in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Monday, I wrote about how to help a parent who is undergoing cancer treatment.
Tuesday, Sarah wrote about how to talk to young children about cancer.
Today, Jen is sharing what to say – and what not to say – to a person newly diagnosed with cancer.
Tomorrow, I am sharing an interview with the Executive Direction of Cleaning for a Reason.

Please stop by Jen’s site today for ideas on what to say (and what not to say) to a friend who has recently been diagnosed with cancer, and leave your own suggestions if you have experience.

Below are resources that may be beneficial to families experiencing cancer. If you have other resources, please share them in the comments so I can add them to the list.
