Do you like number one or number two?

I recently went for my annual eye exam. My vision is poor, even without all that blue light at night, so I try to be as good to my eyes as possible. I have a good rapport with my eye doctor; she is amazingly gentle with the battery of vision and pressure tests and she understands why I giggle during the main vision test (thanks,…

Are You Stressing Your Kids Out?

This content originally appeared on www.playdatesonfridays.com.

Two travel soccer leagues, piano, gymnastics, horseback, theater and various school activities.   And sometimes a lacrosse clinic. Or basketball. Or we may take a cooking class some place.

Sometimes when I write it all down, it freaks me out a bit, and I ask myself, “Are we doing too much? Do my kids have enough time to play, or breathe?”

And then I…

When Too Much Is Too Much

I started to let my anxiety and low self-esteem take over my mind this morning.  I really didn't want to feel that way so I fought to keep these emotions at bay and I fought hard.  It's been 3 hours now and, so far so good.  What did I do?  Let's see...

School Avoidance (Part 2 of 2)

As I mentioned in my previous blog, we have had an increase in calls to our Family Support Line related to children refusing to go to school. If you did not read the previous blog, it would be a good place to start regarding general information on heading off school avoidance in children.

What is school avoidance? The website, Human Illnesses, defined school avoidance as “when children and teens repeatedly stay home from school or are repeatedly sent home from school, because of…

Make New Friends But Keep The Old?

I cannot be the only one...who has suspected that their long time friendships may have turned into something other than actual friendships over the many, many years that we have known each other. This is something I have been thinking about for…

School Avoidance (Part 1 of 2)

We have had three calls to our Family Support Line in the last month related to children refusing to go to school. It occurred to me that this might be a good topic to address in the blog. In the twenty years that I have been working with children and families, I have noticed that school avoidance seems to rise around the holidays. I believe there are a few reasons for the peak in school avoidance around this time of year. The first is that the semester is finishing up and the stress…

Is your child a Nervous Nelly when it's time for a visit to the doctor?

Here are some helpful tips thanks to Mountainland Pediatrics:

  • Talk about doctor visits in a positive way. Read fun books to your child about doctor visits prior to your appointment.
  • If your child asks if the shot or procedure will hurt, don't fib about it; get down at your child's eye-level and explain that the shot may hurt a little for a few seconds.
  •  Allow your child some control regarding the appointment. Let them choose which toy they want to bring with…

Preventing or Decreasing Long-term Problems in Children

Parents/primary caregivers are the most important advocate for their children in all areas of their development, including social-emotional.  May is Mental Health Awareness month.     Children as young as newborns can have social-emotional issues.  Research shows, behavior problems that surface in early childhood are the single best predictor for several long-term outcomes, such as adolescent delinquency, gang involvement, incarceration, substance abuse, divorce, unemployment (Center for…

Depression

I feel like I'm drowning I hate feeling depressed especially when it seems it will never end.  This is such a hard issue that I have had to deal with for so many years.  I really hate talking about these things with anyone because I just want everyone to think I'm normal.  The problem is I don't feel normal and this is something that I have wished for. Even now I'm finding out hard to write about this. 

I'm just going to list my problems below…

Ready...Set...WORRY

When I found out I was pregnant with Conor I was single, young, and pretty stupid.  When I told the ex-boyfriend the situation he quickly skipped town around the time I was 6 weeks along.  I never heard from him again.  I had to grow up and get my shit together fast, but in all honesty it wasn't that hard.  As soon as I realized I was pregnant, I was attached to the little one growing inside me.  I had never felt more in love with anything or anyone in my life before.  When he first…

It's Okay Guys, I'm A Grown Up.

One time, when I was 18ish, I went to a routine doctor's visit for something mundane, I can't remember what...let's go with ear wax build up (nothing traumatic about that right?).  The visit ended with me being hooked up to a heart monitor for 24 hours to test for some kind of irregularity.  Doesn't add up does it?  The reason is that I had such a panic attack the doctor actually thought that my racing heart was associated with something other than my intense…

Live And Let Happy

So I'm starting off the year with a pretty hefty worry, and it's one I've had before.



There is nothing like creating life or being solely responsible for the life of another human being.

Yep, nothing like it...to make an already anxious person turn into a paranoid mess of crazy.
So here's the deal, I know you're suppose to wait 3 months in case anything goes wrong, or to protect your privacy, or to have enough…

5 Tips To Cool Your Worries About Your Children

In light of the Bumbo Baby Seat recall, I am reminded of how much we worry as parents.

When our first-born child, Stella was only 2 hours old, I said to my husband, "You better

have a darn good relationship with her for her entire life. You may be the only

connection we have to her in her teen years." He just looked at me like I was crazy. In

his defense, I probably was a little crazy. I had just gone through labor. That said, I

clarified my statement to him…

Thundershirt My Ass

Our dog has earned many a nickname in his three years with the family -- Goatdog, asshole, jackass, dick.  But the one name that kinda surprises me (especially given the fact that he body slammed himself through the friggin' front door) is WIMP.  Yes, for some reason, the big lug turns into one giant wussbag when it comes to thunderstorms.

Confessions of a First Time Mother: Two Babies, One Mother, Much Love, Many Meltdowns?

Confession time.

I've written and re-written this post so many times in the past two months, I don't even know where to begin anymore. Do I stay positive, or write what I'm really feeling? Do I pretend I am so overjoyed and excited for every second of every day, or do I admit that I'm terrified half the time? Am I allowed to be excited to be pregnant while DREADING the newborn stage, coming {way…

My Afterlife Series - Dissing Anxiety

By Susan Keats, Contributor &  Seize-the-Day Propagandist

I don’t have much respect for anxiety. My own anxiety is ridiculously annoying. I was never an anxious person until that cancer diagnosis came from out of the blue. Now I worry about my health all the time. I have read that anxiety serves a purpose: to keep you aware of potential danger, but when you…
