What If My Child Is A Bully?

As I watch my son go off to school, there is a part of me that is dying a little bit knowing that I can’t protect him the way I used to. My heart would ache thinking about him being picked on in the playground, and not being there to defend him. I would think back to when I was growing up and…

Helping Your Kids Memorize

When your kids start school they have to memorize a variety of things.  They need to know their home address, home telephone number, spelling words and so much more.

I am going to share what I do to help my children remember their weekly memory verse.  You can use this technique for anything.
My children currently attend private school and every Monday in their homework packet is a memory verse from the Bible, they need memorized by Friday.

Don’t get too excited…

My BEST TIPS for Back to School Shopping

I just had the BEST, BEST day with my 6 year old.  She’s about to head into Grade 1, and we hit the mall for some back to school shopping together.

Do you look forward to back to school shopping or is it something you dread as the school year approaches?

I love shopping for anything or anyone, but I’ve learned that shopping with 3 kids can be a challenge… each waiting for the other to try on different items.  Eventually the boredom sets in and it’s hairy-scary…

Some of you may find this technique someones are dead to me.

Last month, the school sent home notes announcing the first quarter parent/teacher conferences were to be held the second week of November. Conference sign-up sheets were at school and we should stop in ASAP and schedule a meeting before all the slots filled up.

Must I fix everything in this world?

Last week, Lexi had an assignment which required a poster-board. Actually, it didn’t require a poster-board, notepad paper would have worked too, but it seems like the new generation of teachers prefer everything from a haiku to a spelling assignment completed on poster-board. It’s like these teachers are compensating for something else. You know what they say about a teacher who assigns over sized homework, don’t you?… Continue

Pretty, petite sociopaths bullied me...Thanks for the memories "ladies" {snort}

I was bullied and run out of school when I was 11 years old. It was horrible. So horrible that I’ve made a conscientious effort to stuff my feelings good and down ever since. Then the recent stories about kids and online/offline bullying and the tragic consequences began running rampant through the media, and all those suppressed feelings resurfaced. That’s just great. Twenty-five, perfectly good years of denying my feelings, and…
