What are your kids doing at school?

Since my son started school I have been so curious to find out what he's up to every day. Of course I ask him, “What did you do today?” but there are no prizes for guessing his answer. I have tried the trick of arriving early and casually hanging around outside while I innocently glance inside the classroom. Murphy's Law: I could say every child in the class except mine.

Listening Like a Sponge

Posted on February 19, 2014 at 5:06am 0 Comments

How well does your child listen to you?  Like most kids, my son, 8 years, listens sometimes and other times not.  Last year I had a particularly difficult time getting him to listen.  I was so frustrated and thought he was probably trying to be the "ruler" as he was going through a phase of "the man knows more", "men are rulers of the house" and "you are just a girl".

Then one day I passed by a sign with the well known phrase: “Listen like a sponge”.  I got…
