It often happens that children are afraid of sleeping alone in the room. Sometimes children also fear to go through the dark hall to the kitchen, because they want to drink a glass of water. As a result, you sit with the child and wait or wake up in the night, when your child calls you. From the first look at this problem, it is normal for all children.

Reminiscing about my childhood is easy to do considering all of the greats memories I get to remember and share with others. It is because of my great memories that I want to be sure to pass the same feeling and memories on to my children. Passing down family traditions is something I want my children to not only enjoy, but I want the traditions to mean equally as much to them, as they do to me. I want to create memories for a lifetime, and ultimately they pass the traditions down to their… Continue

Two people have researched the many signs of nutrient deficiency in children - Dr. Weston A. Price, author of Nutrition and Physical Degeneration and Julia Ross, author of The Mood Cure. We will discuss a few of their findings below and take a look at the… Continue

When you first think of the word "date," it's easy to assume that it involves two individuals roughly around the same age who are in some type of romantic relationship, whether new or seasoned. While this may be true, "dates" can include kids, too. (preferably not in addition to the two individuals in a romantic relationship- that's what babysitters are for!) Special outings with just one child and… Continue

I recently visited the Sacramento Zoo with my two older boys on a school field trip and we had a great time. I have visited the Sacramento Zoo many times, and try to go once a year. If you have not recently attended they have made some new additions! One of my favorite new additions is the Stage Show with Animal Talks! They display different animals, share fun facts and information about the animals and allow you to touch some of the animals. At one point during the show they invited… Continue

Being a Person with Tourettes can be so difficult and challenging. For a child, it can be even more difficult. Sometimes it is extremely hard for the child to translate to adults what is happening to them and they cannot control the tics that occur. Many seek every solution in controlling the tics but most often, even after Tourettes is diagnosed, a solution is often not found. I have read that some visit doctor after doctor and trying tons of medication… Continue

It is widely believed (and statistically proved) that women with children are much less likely to make careers and have higher chances to end up in a low-end job. While facts and numbers cannot be denied, one should still remember that there are exceptions to any rule, and if you are contemplating having a kid in the near future, it’s not a MUST to bail on your work.

I find that my kids like to know what is planned for the day and week. Even at a young age, ages 3, 5 and 7 like their mother who likes to know what is happening. They do a lot better when they know the plan.
