A Common Conundrum for Parents: Childcare Expenses that Drain your Pocketbook

http://www.meritworld.com/I can empathize with new parents when they talk about the seemingly-impossible task of finding great schooling that doesn’t break the bank.  Sending your preschooler off is hard enough emotionally, and becomes even more challenging when factor in your requirements: you want it to be a stimulating, educational, and reliable start and a comfortable place for your kids to be while you are at work.  For most options,…See More

Who are we blogging to anyway? Is anyone out there???

I love the blogosphere, and since you are reading this, it is safe to assume that you do too!  Blogging is a terrific way to have a discussion with perfect strangers about topics that bring us together.  Perfect example: here we are at MomBloggersClub.com. . . we are all here for one reason: we are mothers seeking information, wanting to share information, and looking for a way to connect with one another.  We are a…See More

Win Scholarships and Get Into Your Dream School!

Thanks to budget cuts, California’s higher education system is going through tough times, and students from across the state are feeling the strain. We’ve already gone over the fact that the UC’s are now admitting a lower percentage of residents, which means that their ever-higher admissions standards are only getting more so for Californians. It’s becoming harder and harder to stand out. These days, with the abundance of AP and Honors classes offered at many high schools, a 3.6 GPA or even a…See More

The Curious Case of Babymoons

It used to be that a “babymoon” referred to the period of time that parents spent bonding with a newborn baby, but in recent years, people have instead been using it to describe a vacation that expectant parents take before the baby arrives. Whether it’s Natalie Portman or French First Lady Carla Bruni, the recent uptick in celebrity babymoons has been making more and more Americans aware of this phenomenon. The implication behind it, of course, is that once your baby arrives, life as you know…See More

Rate me - Kudos to Anyone Who Can Really Rip it Apart

I want the honest truth, and an explanation on how or what we need to do to make it better. We are just starting to get some comments, but half of them are irrelevant to the particular posts. I would like to know how I can tweak my writing style, title creation, and/or overall message. How do I build a relevant following? What are some successful blogs about education advice?www.collegeadvisory.netGo for it! I give you my permission.See More

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
In 1984, I became pregnant with my first daughter Nicole. After the initial excitement, I became overwhelmed about the prospect of sending my daughter to the terrible public schools in our district, which had just had their budgets cut. Being an educator myself, I was in contact with some of the teachers. I knew how bad the textbooks were, how large the classes were, and how incoherent the curriculum was. Even though she wasn’t born yet, I was worried about how my daughter was to be educated.

Now I am the Director at Merit Educational Consultants. Merit is a college Advisory looking to connect with parents that want to get their kids into selective colleges. Merit offers services such as test prep, 4 year plans, interview skills, personal statements, resume building, appeal letters, and ProjectMERIT. ProjectMERIT is a program where students use real world skills to develop a project that benefits the community. I also run a K-12 program that focuses on one-to-one teaching.
What is your blogging philosophy?
Comment to one as one would like to be commented on. Focus on content and blog with integrity, expressing my opinion and sharing my thoughts.

The Wisdom of Letting Kids Fail

Posted on June 29, 2011 at 3:56pm 0 Comments

I think that many Americans have known for a long time that indulgent, Helicopter-style parenting leads to entitled children. Of course, when it’s spelled out that way, the truth seems implicit and obvious, but it’s a truth that’s been lost on a generation of middle class parents who only wanted their children to avoid all of the discomforts that they experienced, and to have all of the advantages that they never had. While that sentiment is certainly one that anyone can empathize with, it…

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
