There is no doubt that the transition from high school to college is a journey for both you and your teen. The magnitude of the move from 24/7 parent to empty-nester is not to be taken lightly, but your focus must be on helping your child in their journey. For many parents this requires a step back to allow your teen to explore their own needs and desires and take ownership of the process. But being involved without controlling the process can be a challenge.

I've been blessed many times in my life and for that reason, I believe in paying it forward. Whether it's by helping other writers through the Liberty States Fiction Writers or participating in various charitable events, I think it's the right thing to do.

The health benefits of incorporating Omega-3 fatty acids into our diet is nothing new. We have learned from other cultures that these fats are healthy. Some of these cultures such as the Inuit in Greenland eat as much as 40% of their diets in fat. However, these people have low rates of diabetes, heart disease and degenerative joint disease. The reason for this is their fatty diets are…Continue

Today's work out consisted of 20 minutes of jogging in place, 6 times running up and down the stairs to the basement and my updated plank position 3 times. I had some issues with my InsterStim a few hours later with some muscle cramping and am now wondering if I maybe over did it a bit. I felt so…Continue

If you're going to be an Art Mom for a group of second graders, and you sense you're losing their attention, don't try to be clever and mention Van Gogh's ear.
Just don't. Even if you feel you're doing it for the greater good. Because soon you will not be giving a presentation on art. You will be giving a presentation on ears.
Trust me. I spoke today at my son's classroom - finishing a program on color and mood that got cut short last week - and brought in a wide variety of art…Continue

Yesterday, I threw my arms up in defeat. I surrendered. I caved. I gave up. I did the unthinkable – called a medical specialist. The connotation surrounding this call is “I’m a failure.” I could not rid my body of pain. I could not figure out the problem and fix it. Add this mindset to escalating PMS…Continue

How do you control what your kids watch at night?
Make TV watching a public affair.
I'm a mom of two teens and two toddlers. My teens hardly watch tv at night. If they're lucky enough to have homework done by 8, they're too busy chatting with friends or trying to finish a good book before bed. If it's one of those rare nights when they're "free" and feeling like tv, their only option is venturing out of their room to join the family in the family…Continue
