OK, Truthful Tuesdays....once again, we are gathered here to expunge our psyche's of all of this unnecessary bullshit that we've been Continue
carrying with us in tortured silence and not so silent misery.No
judgment, no ramifications, just support and love from those of us who
are exactly where you are....the brink of insanity, the end of our
rope, a not so high ledge. No matter the circumstances, we are with
you. Today, I'd like to confess…

If you want to alienate your kids, create an atmosphere that says “I am the boss and you will obey!” On the other hand, if you want a relationship with your kids, create an atmosphere that says “I am here to help you!”
Communicating with your child is what will determine the type of relationship you will share. On going communication is what will allow the relationship to deepen and strengthen.
Parents are often so busy they forget the need to consciously cultivate a… Continue

I know that it is crazy to expect to have a moment of peace and quiet
to myself. I know that there are sacrifices to be made when you have
children. I am on board with that. I was not so oblivious to think that
my life would remain unchanged. I thought there would be changes. I
knew things would never be the same, but I was not prepared for the
magnitude; the depth and breadth of it all. When they were newborn, all
my time was spend occupying their time. My life… Continue

This Winter season has been unusually cold and has caused many at home or snow days with the children. When you are parents of multiples, it can seem like a very long day that never ends--basically GroundHog Day on repeat. The first day seems wonderful--snuggling underneath the blankets and watching a favorite family movie. By the third day, you are totally sick of the hearing the Elmo's World theme song and you really don't care if the kids have drawn on all the walls in the house with… Continue

Multiples club are a valuable resource and wealth of knowledge for parents of… Continue

Bilingual culture is a part of everyday society, including in the world of children. The proved benefits of children speaking dual languages have been reflected in schools and the media. From dual language immersion programs in elementary schools to television shows that portray bilingual children, such as Disney's Spanish Handy Manny or Nickelodeon's Chinese Ni Hao, Kai-Lan, teaching another language to a child has become highly recommended.
Most families of multiples have an… Continue

Ever have one of those weeks where you are so tired that you can't even see straight? I'm sure, as Mommies, you have all been there. Those nights when you are up all night with a sick child, or feeding a newborn, or if you are really blessed both. Yes, we have all been there. I am not asking for pity:)LOL I am merely sharing the very interesting, albeit scarey, scenario that I experienced a couple days ago in a hotel bathroom . Wow, that sentence sounded way more exciting that what actually… Continue

Parents are not only there to pay for the school fee's. More importantly, they should supervise the growth and development can do this. Be in an environment that is cognitively stimulating to the child, and will appeal to his curious nature. Provide interesting materials help children enhance their imagination by giving them fascinating books, art materials (paper, crayon etc) blocks and old clothes for costume to encourage role-playing and story telling activities. Let the children play we… Continue

Hunter is 16 months old now, and I'm simply amazed at how fast he's growing, learning, doing.
No longer does my little man wake up crying. He now sits up and carries on baby babble conversations with his favorite cushy -soft stuffed animal, Winnie the Pooh. This morning I decided to hang out in bed to listen to him for a few extra minutes. I was shocked, to say the least. Out of his mouth, clear as day, came "Winnie the… Continue

I envy people who can play seven unrelated instruments while singing the words to any song, know their way around O’Hare the first time landing there and make their connection just in time, cook and entertain simultaneously (it’s not as easy as it seems), negotiate a deal on a house for tens of thousands off the asking price and get the house even though they weren’t the highest bidder, or land the job even though they weren’t the most qualified but could fake the jobspeak the… Continue

If asked if you are you an “awakened” parent you would probably pause to consider what that actually means. What constitutes being an awakened parent? Many equate the term “awakened” with “eyes wide-opened” or being “aware”. In terms of parenting, to be awakened means to be conscious of what your role as a parent consists of…examining your role, determining if it is working to produce the results you intend, and finally, making necessary changes to achieve those goals.
Parenting is… Continue

I was told recently by a friend that the reason emotions run so high at this time of year is that there’s physical and emotional clearing in preparation for the NEW year. And we always thought it was our families … So what do we do with all this emotion?
We voice our discontent and then we take action. Join me now in a silent scream for many of the current news stories and the harsh conditions half of the world’s children endure. Okay, scream over, feeling lighter, we now take center… Continue
