DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN – A special-needs teenager walked out of school last week and hasn’t been seen since, according to family members.
The parents of 15-year-old Paris McCoy say he was last seen at the Science Skills Center High School in Downtown Brooklyn on April 29.
Family members are distributing fliers and canvassing the streets in hopes of finding the teen, who suffers from ADHD and behavioral disorders that require medication.

McCoy is supposed to have around-the-clock supervision, but when his parents arrived to pick him up from school last Thursday, they say he was nowhere to be found.
“My concern is that he’s out there and easily manipulated, that someone is going to get him to do things that he’s not doing normally,” says his mother, Kathy McCoy.

Have a safe and Blessed Happy Mothers Day!!

Here are some gift ideas for those who like handmade gifts

At some point on Mother’s Day, you may want some time alone or a chance for a little rest and relaxation. Make sure you get what you need — and deserve — by asking for it in advance. For instance, a few days before Mother’s Day, give your husband and kids a list of five “services” you desire. The list could include:

An hour alone so I can call a friend or soak in the tub
A chance to sleep in until 9 a.m.
A manicure at my favorite nail salon
No sibling squabbles for an hour
Whatever else you’d really love!
Have your husband and kids make up coupons with each of these services, and be sure to redeem them throughout Mother’s Day weekend.
Schedule time for hugs.

Finally, what would Mother’s Day be like without hugs and kisses all around? One way to work them into your day is by setting up a silly “hugs and kisses” schedule and posting it on the refrigerator or other visible spot. For instance, you could write, “10:30 a.m.: Everyone runs around the couch and gives Mom a hug and kiss.” or “2:15 p.m.: Everyone hops around the oak tree on one foot and assembles for a group hug.” Make up your own directions and silly things to do — but be sure to include lots of hugs, kisses, and laughter in your day.
