Back from our business trip/honeymoon in South America, my husband Sam’s apartment was in a basement on the west side of the city. The small windows were right under the ceiling. We had a view of people’s feet passing by.

One day Sam invited business associates to come over for drinks. I was to serve hors d’oeuvres. Remembering my mother’s caviar canapés, but not having the money for such luxury, I bought fake caviar; it was black and looked the part. I dutifully made little sandwiches and arranged them prettily on a platter. They were sitting in the fridge waiting for the guests to arrive, but when I opened the refrigerator door to serve my lovely appetizers, all I saw was black liquid from the fake caviar running down the sides of my dish; it was a mess. I was too embarrassed to admit what had happened. Next time, I thought, I will have a can of peanuts for such emergencies. That time, however, we had drinks with nary a bite of food.

Returning home from our honeymoon, I discovered I was pregnant. Sam and I were delighted to welcome a daughter; twenty-one months later a son followed. With our expanded family we needed a larger apartment. We found one facing Central Park where I spent many happy hours sitting at the playground while my children played in the sandboxes and on the slides.

To escape the heat in New York, we rented a small summer cottage in Bound Brook, New Jersey, close to a factory where Sam was experimenting with a new fire-retardant paint (he was a chemical engineer). It turned out to be a failure, as the paint, although fire-retardant, remained sticky to the touch.

I had two children in diapers—this was before disposables—so every couple of days I would drive to the local laundromat with the kids in tow. One day Sam came home with half a dozen baby chicks, which turned out to be ducks who took over the children’s inflatable pool. The children loved running after. We gave them to our neighbors when we returned to New York. I enjoyed those summers living out in the countryside.

Sam continued to travel on business. He would fly home for a few days and then take off again, leaving me to raise the children alone. As they got older, I wanted to pursue a career.

The Child Study Association was looking for people to read and write reviews of child development books for parents and psychologists. This was a perfect job for me as I could stay home to work and meet weekly in their offices to discuss my findings and hand in my reviews. I worked there for many years.

In 1961, the U.S. government funded a study on children in daycare. They were looking for a part-time researcher. Based on my experience, they offered me the job. As my children were in school, I accepted the position. The project involved doing a literature review of psychologists’ and psychiatrists’ writings about child development. I identified 25 professionals from Europe, Israel and the U.S. willing to spend part of a summer living in a kibbutz in Israel studying different patterns of childcare and how they affect child development. This involved my spending two summers in a kibbutz in Israel, the first to prepare and the second to coordinate a symposium.

Kibbutz Dahlia was a typical, 500-member, agricultural, self-sustaining community. Children lived in a children’s house from infancy until university. They were divided into age groups with four to six children and an adult called a metapelet in each bedroom. Children spent their days at their house, eating, studying, playing, and sleeping. Parents came after work to pick them up for dinner and returned them to the children’s house to put them to bed.

The European and American participants were interested in studying farming communities to compare the children to kibbutz children. They held many discussions with the Israeli participants. The kibbutz children were seen as more secure, self-confident, and less aggressive than their counterparts with good ego development and no evidence of success strivings. Competition was between groups, but not within the group. Leadership was shared at various times. Since everything including toys were shared equally by all the children, there was no need for individual ownership, nor acquisition drive. The collective was successful in producing sociable, responsible, and contended members of the kibbutz society, with the large majority returning to the kibbutz after completing university.

It was a privilege to have organized and been involved with this group from its inception to its conclusion. The insights gained by the participants contributed to the literature on the management of daycare centers.

My boyfriend called me that he is breaking up with me and i tried asking him what happened but he couldn't give me any reason, then i realized that something was fishing because the 3 years we dated we never had any issues it has always be peace, love and harmony within us so i decided to find out what was behind this his strange decision so i contacted Dr noble and when i did, Dr noble explain to me that my boyfriend's mom was behind it, she don't want her son to get married to me and so she put a black magic on him to hate me forever, hearing this i started crying because i love my boyfriend so much and i don't want to lose him. Dr noble told me not to cry that he will help me cancel the black magic she placed on my boyfriend to hate me and bring my boyfriend back to me, i believed him and i provided all he asked for and within 48 hours my boyfriend came to me begging that he is sorry over the way he spoke to me and that he did't knew what came over him, we are back together now and his mother have confessed that she was behind our breakup and she have promised not to try and separate us again, i'm so happy now thanks a lot Dr noble for bringing my boyfriend back to me. contact dr Noble via noblespellhome@ gmail. com or chat him live on whatsapp via 2349059610643 to get back with your loved one.

Been heart broken isn't a thing of joy you know. My wife got me divorced after she caught me cheating on her with my ex lover. Was so ashamed and felt so disappointed at myself. I couldn't bear the fact that I no longer have a life partner so I decided to try get my wife back with everything I could possibly do but nothing worked out. Not till I was referred to Dr,Tony who made what I thought was impossible to be possible by bringing back my wife within 48 hours after I made contact with him. I can boldly and joyfully say that my marriage is working just fine and more beautiful than before and I'm so happy to have got in contact with Dr,Tony for he's really a genius. Thanks to May Albert too for connecting me to Dr,Tony, If you have any issues regardless of how big it is, Dr,Tony will sort it out for you.

After reading all these, I decided to give Dr. Adeyemi Adeshina a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 3 days, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before. Dr. Adeyemi Adeshina is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing good about him because he is a wonderful man...
