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…

Bring On More Parenting Advice!

Why? Because one can never have enough! Well, at least that's my view and stance on the subject. I've received so much advice along the way on my journey of parenthood & I've learned to embrace everything I've been told: good or bad, agree or disagree. I've taken what I've found useful and implemented them in our lives, and I've tucked away the "other" advice for reference (because sometimes what NOT to do is important information too). Then the journey itself lends experience &…

10 Date Ideas for Parents and Children

10 Date Ideas for Parents and Children 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…

My parents doing what they loved most, cooking a good meal.

Be responsible "PARENTS"

I work in social services and had a 12 yr old who was recommended to attend a Magnetic Program during high school. I provided his mother with the application about a month ago and informed her of the date and time the application must be submitted. I followed up about a week before the application was due and his mother informed me that he has not completed it but she will have him do it over the weekend. I advised her that he will need some assistance.

The day before the application…
