Mom Warns Everyone About The Dangers Of Anti-Vaxxing After Her Daughter Ends Up In ER

in Design Nerd by

The flaming hot debate between those for and against vaccinating children has flared up once again. Registered nurse Camille Echols’ daughter Ashley recently had to be treated in the ER after being exposed to a child with chickenpox, which prompted the mom to pen a scathing essay about ‘anti-vaxxers’ and the danger they create for kids like hers.

Show Full Text

Anti-vaxxers have used a number of medical and ethical arguments to make a case for themselves. Some take issue with the supposed ‘harmful ingredients’ inside vaccines that they believe may cause allergic reactions, pneumonia, and even neurological disabilities like autism, notions which have largely been debunked. Others are angered by laws requiring all children to be vaccinated in order to attend public schools, and accuse the government of intervening in personal medical matters.

Despite the curiosity anti-vaxxers provoke, overwhelming evidence from the Centers for Disease Control maintains that vaccines are safe for children and adults, and that they are necessary in order to protect the public. For children like Ashley Echols, who live with compromised immunity, it only takes one unvaccinated child to transmit a disease that could kill them.

Read Camille’s plea below, and tell us what you think in the comments!

Dad Photoshops Daughter In Dangerous Situations to Scare Grandma

in Design Nerd by

Stephen Crowley has figured out the perfect way to give grandma a heart attack:

I’ve been photoshopping my kid into marginally dangerous situations. Nothing unbelievable, but enough to make people think “Wait, did he..?”

Now we just have to wait until the child is old enough to photoshop him into marginally negligent nursing home facilities.

I Made A Fairytale-Themed Room For My Daughter To Encourage Her To Read

in Design Nerd by

A few month back I was lying in bed with the idea of a book themed bedroom in my head. I hardly slept that night because of all the ideas I had. I drew the pictures up the next day and tried finding more and more ideas. I had the idea of it all in my head but my brother Daniel Wright helped to put it all into perspective for me and helped to figure out how to link all my images into one big image. So I owe Daniel a massive thank you.

My daughter is 2 years old and the loveliest little girl ever but of course I’m going to say that I am her mum. But she really is. She loves thinking she can read books. She sits there with a book upside down and babbles to herself. We can’t understand a word she says but in Chloe’s head it makes sense to her and that’s all that matters.

My brother now paints people rooms as a business. They are always lovely but the problem is the children soon get bored and want something else and quite often he has been called back a few years later to redo it. I didn’t want this. I wanted something that was timeless, something that will help mould her into the amazing little girl that I already know she is, something to send her imagination into overdrive and something that will encourage her to want to pick up a book and read. I believe together we have achieved this and it has turned out so much better than I imagined it in my head.

A few month back I was lying in bed with the idea of a book themed bedroom in my head

I wanted to create a timeless room for my daughter, who is now 2-years-old


She loves thinking she can read books. She is having a few learning difficulties and has only just started walking. There is no denying she is a very clever girl but just struggling in different areas

It does not worry me as I know she is her own little person and is just going at her own pace


So this is where I got the idea for her toy box. I absolutely love the quote, it sums Chloe up all in one

I decided to paint the door in the style of a book. I wanted the idea that the door is the book cover and as you open the door you are opening the book to the amazing stories that unfold inside the room


There are over 90 books on the wall and there is space for more for when Chloe gets older and chooses her favorite books that I can then paint on top

I want Chloe to be able to point characters out to me and ask me who they are. I will then be able to get out the book and read it to her

I don’t have all the books yet but every time I see one that is on her wall I add it to the colection


I have acquired a lot in charity shops as everything I have done in this room is on a budget from the furniture to the bed sheets


I also made a patchwork quilt using lots of pieces of Dr Seuss material. This took many hours, but is something I’m hoping she can pass down to her children as well as the Roald Dahl cushions

This room has already helped my daughter as she points to characters and does the animal noises

The room is not just for children but for adults as well

“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild to pick up a book and read to a child”- Dr. Seuss

Banksy Inspired My 10-Year Old Daughter To Create Family-Friendly Street Art

in Design Nerd by

Our family watched Banksy’s “Exit Through the Giftshop” together, and my 10-year-old daughter adamantly declared she wanted to be a street artist. I didn’t dig the idea of vandalism, but I also didn’t want to squash her excitement and creativity. So I picked up some rocks and together the family painted them with beastly faces and spread them around town.

We had so much fun, we did it again a few months later with painted sticks and then a third time with painted leaves.

My 13-Year-Old Daughter Made This Star Wars Identification Kit Game For Her Friend’s Birthday

in Design Nerd by

My dear 13-years-old daughter designed, crafted and created this amazing Star Wars identification kit for a friend’s birthday present.

The aim of this kit was to match the 20 Star Wars characters to their corresponding names. This awesome piece of art was crafted from singed pages of a book by which each character is hand drawn with felt tip black pen and shaded with colour pencils.

I am amazed by the amount of detail, clarity of lines and texture, time and effort that has gone into this stunning piece of work. A true masterpiece for any Star Wars lover.
