Every parent has a different way of parenting their children. There is no right or wrong way; however, many parents find that they have to tailor their parenting styles depending how their children respond to our guidance. Every child learns differently, so what may work for one family or child might not work for another. As a parent with multiple children, you may find yourself frazzled and stressed out because what is working for one child isn’t working on another. Read more…Continue

Nothing really surprises me when it comes to my kids, but I seriously don't know what possesses them to do some of the crazy, stupid things they do. And sometimes, it's really really hard to be the parent and not laugh at those crazy, stupid things. (Cause let's be honest, some of them are pretty freaking hysterical!) The latest thing that made me go hmmm? My son decided…Continue

I swear my husband gets his jollies by trying to embarrass the crap out of me. He's always enjoyed putting the car windows down and driving around our neighborhood with the radio blaring full blast. And believe me, I've seen many an eye roll from our fellow neighbors whenever we go thumping by. It makes me wanna slump down in the seat and pretend like I'm not really there, even…Continue

If you have a kid in any kind of organized sport, then you've most likely witnessed some pretty awful sportsmanship at one time or another. It's bad enough when it's another kid displaying the rotten behavior, but when it's an adult? Well, that's just the lowest of the low. And this past weekend I had the misfortune of observing THE most jack asinine…Continue

Remember when you were growing up and you said you'd never ever do to your own children the things your parents did to you? Perhaps it was a vow you made to yourself in the midst of snot and tears as you slammed the door of your room so hard that it nearly shattered the windows? Well, my sixteen-year-old self would probably punch me in the face for doing so, but here's me admitting…Continue

Do you ever wanna just walk away from your kids in public and act like you don't know who the hell they are? No? Surely that's not just me. Call me Mommy Dearest if you will, but when my kids have a brain fart and act like complete Neanderthals who've never heard of manners, I sometimes think it would be easier to point and stare and pretend like I'm disgusted by the horrible excuse…
Misadventures in Motherhood: The Nudist: For some reason, my four-year-old boy seems to be allergic to wearing pants. Underwear too, for that matter. I've heard of kids who spont...

I don't know about you, but sometimes, I can't help but laugh my buns off when my kids are throwing an all-out fit. They just look so incredibly ridiculous to me as they're wailing and screaming and flailing themselves about the floor. In fact, I've even videotaped one of my daughter's tantrums to show her just what an asshole looks like in action. Of course, she doesn't find it…Continue

Not literally of course, that wouldn't be pretty at my age. I'm referring to writing honestly and not holding things back.
In my professional life I am known as a very well-respected expert in the field of cat behavior. I have written 7 books on the subject and have worked full-time in this field for 25 years. I am IAABC certified and AABP certified and enjoyed having a career where I feel confident. That's when something happened to my common sense and reasoning and…Continue

Are You Having Fun With Your Teenager? At first glance some of you may think this is a trick question! It isn’t. I ask the question for several reasons.
The first is because so many of the parents who contact me for…Continue

It was a snowy morning at the bus stop, and the grass was wet and icy. So I told the kids to stay out of the grass and stand on the street so their shoes wouldn't get wet. For reasons I will never understand, Miles decided to take this directive as a challenge. He looked right at me…Continue

I just love this photo … As much as we may not want to admit it; there truly is a little bugger and devil in all our children. It does not matter how cute and adorable we think they may be at the time because we can't loose sight of the fact discipline is so very important when raising children. We all can attest a child's unacceptable behavior can get out of hand very quickly when it is ignored and not addressed immediately. They are extremely bright… Continue
