The Path of Least Resistance

When I first became a parent, I remember very clearly my mother advising me to "choose my battles carefully". It was her belief, and soon became mine, that when raising children, you must not put yourself in a position of "dictator". "Growing up shouldn't be a battlefield" my mother would say.



Her words were always in the back of my mind as I was raising my daughter (now 32) and are still a very large part of my parenting philosophy as I now raise my grandchildren.

What to do about the Tylenol Recall



On April 30th (2010) McNeil Consumer Healthcare announced a voluntary recall on certain OTC (over the counter) infants’ and children’s products. Products include Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl. This recall was not mandated by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) and no adverse medical events have been reported. The voluntary recall was initiated due to quality concerns. MeNeil reports in their press release that some products “may contain a higher concentration of active… Continue

Catching up ....

So it’s been awhile since I have updated here. This was somewhat intentional as too many things were hanging in the air and I decided to step back and wait before putting it all out there. I know … so unlike me. Anyway, all is well and we have made it through yet another stressful time as a family.…

Painless Shots for Kids

This is one of the neatest things I've ever seen. It's a cute little bumblebee that relieves needle pain when your child gets a shot. Simply press it against the skin above the injection site and it interferes with pain signals to relieve injection pain. Since there are few things I dread more than taking my child to get a shot, I am very interested in seeing how well this thing works. I would imagine that the sight of the needle alone is frightening enough for a child to go nuts, but maybe the… Continue

Addiction Recovery With Exercise

Whether you are addicted to alcohol, street drugs, prescription drugs, gambling, food, or nicotine, the neurological pattern that develops is the same. The reward center in your brain is underactive, and it takes more in life to tell that part of your brain that you're having a good time. Nothing but the addiction seems to satisfy that reward center, and the brain is tricked into thinking that the addiction is necessary for survival.



Quick bursts of exercise at 70-80% of one's… Continue

The Two Best IQ Boosters for Kids

New research is showing us fascinating information about the brain. We are now learning that we can form new brain cells at nearly any age with physical exercise, and that exercising before class can significantly boost learning capacity by spawning new brain cells. Learning new information immediately following aerobic exercise fills the new cells with information.



The new neural pathways formed during exercise are like new railroad tracks in our brains. If we don't use them, we… Continue

Do These Things To Live Longer

I love it when a “new study” republishes old information. This just in: four behaviors are correlated with longevity. The behaviors studied happen to be physical exercise, nutrition, alcohol use, and tobacco use.



This is old news. There’s such a stockpile of research on the topic already that we now know that 85% of our longevity is tied to our lifestyle behaviors. Your choices usually determine whether or not you’ll live to see your great grandchildren, not necessarily your genes.… Continue

The Real Story On Chocolate and Depression

A new study has linked chocolate with depression once again. The article merely tells us what our intuition already knew, and the fact that chocolate makes us feel better at some point in our lives isn't exactly news. But how does chocolate make us feel better? Why? What's the reason we tend to crave chocolate more during PMS? The article was so unbelievably incomplete that I felt compelled to provide additional information.







The researchers hum and haw about the… Continue

The Mother’s Day Gift to Give Yourself

Mothers can have bad days – kids misbehave, work gets on top of you, the house is a dump, your husband is being useless, etc. Mothers often tell me that when they are having a bad day, they think of me and they instantly feel better. The chaos in my life provides them with some comfort in those manic mama moments.

But I have to let you in on a little secret: it’s not that bad. In fact, it’s pretty darn good. Sure, I don’t get a lot of sleep and nights out on the town are few and far…

i just threw up in my mouth a little

I’ve been reading skinny bitch for about a week now. No, it doesn’t take me that long to read a book but I’m trying to pace myself and plus I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to do it. After all the fruit and veg I had last Monday and the accompanying stomach aches my body was in shock. So I backed off a bit. Meantime, I’ve also been doing some research, looking up various…

With today’s frantic pace, few divas have time to devote energy to making home baked goodies like our moms made back in the good old days.

Here's How You Can Learn French With Your Child This Summer!



I enrolled my daughter in French immersion when she began preschool.



She is now considered fluently bilingual.



I have read that some parents are nervous about introducing a child to another language at such a young age.



Have no fear! - research shows that at 3-4 years of age, learning a second language is as easy as learning the first!
