A GUIDE TO BEING A GOOD PARENT TO AN ADOLESCENT KID

Adolescent kids are the most difficult ones to live with. They are at a phase in their lives which makes them a little confused and delusional, which is understandable. They feel that they have grown up, and that they know more about how their life is supposed to work more than their parents or their elders. At such a time in their lives, going out with friends and making new acquaintances is…

Field Notes from the Baffled Academic Mom

Parenting is difficult -- whether you are the parent who

  • shares the care while working full or part time along with another parent, or
  • works full time and comes home to relieve the parent who is with the kids ALL DAY LONG.…

Meditation is easy...Not

Oh I can't do that, I can't meditate. I feel so silly just sitting there with my eyes closed. Who has time to sit still? Oh that sounds so goofy, I don't want to feel like I am floating.



I have heard so many comments some with merit and some totally bizarre when I have shared my meditation practice journey. I remember when I first began to practice I couldn't wait to spread the word on how life saving it had been for me and all the benefits I was gaining with my practice. Can I just… Continue

Screw You Laundry!

Doing laundry is my all time favorite thing in the whole wide world! Said no mom of a family of all boys ever. I would rather eat a fried rat and a side of snails. Seriously. To you moms of little babies and toddlers, just wait. The clothes piles get bigger and sweatier and weirder as they get…

Another Day Another Adventure: Life List Questions

Having two middle school aged boys rapidly growing before my eyes, I've learned to cherish every moment, appreciate and love every memory and look forward to what else life has in store for us. I found a questionnaire designed to make people think about their "bucket list". I've always disliked that phrase because it's in reference to "kicking the bucket". I don't want to think of my life that way. I want to think about it terms of a "to do" list. So, here are my answers.... (I've also…

A New School Year of Firsts and Lasts

Today is the beginning of a bittersweet year for this Mom. My youngest--the baby--is now in middle school. That alone is hard for me to grasp since I can still clearly see his bright shining little face declaring his need to go see "It's a Small World" at Disneyland. And my first-born, also a baby in my eyes, is officially in the 8th Grade--the last year of middle school--ready to embark on a few adventures during the year, spreading his wings & heading towards independence. I would…

7 steps to handle toddler tantrums (like a pro)

Tantrums. 

One word that summarizes pretty well the third year of a child’s existence, and the pain that parents have to go through.

No matter how ready, patient, quiet, supportive, attentive, cheerful a mom could be, when the tantrums hit, she will lose her mind.

I Love Jesus But I Cuss a Little

i love jesus but

I’m about to get all controversial on y’all. I saw this quote on Instagram not too long ago and I chuckled and thought, “yep, that is so me”. I mean I try not to say swear words but it does happen. I’m not perfect nor do I want to be. That would boring. Right?

The first time I saw ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ I was hooked on the phrase “Dammit Janet”. ( I still say it) Then I really branched out. The F word was my fav. (I know I am so going to you…

Imagining Perfect Parenting

In my opinion, parenthood is the most rewarding yet the most challenging journey any person can take. The act of balancing the responsibilities of time and money is so tricky. And more often than not, parents don't feel like they've hit the mark. And ultimately, no one person's parenting is better than another. It's about the effort to give your kids better than what you experienced in life--the act of selfless love & making choices FOR them instead of ABOUT you. With that being said, I…
