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

I am the first one to say parenting is serious business. After all, I’m not only a mother and a grandmother, my work as an author is based on parenting as well. And like most parents, I focus on how and what my children learn, especially during their formative years. The formative years are the most important years in terms of the characteristics and traits they obtain and carry into their adult lives.
Parents place an enormous amount of energy on their children’s academic education,… Continue

My wife and I were in London recently. I tagged along on the tail end of her business trip. It was great! We hit the usual stuff: Big Ben, the British Museum, Harrod’s and Hyde Park. We also had some great date nights and awesome dinners, but I couldn’t stop thinking about our daughter. I had dropped her off with her grandparents in San Diego before heading across the pond. This was the first time I was away from her and I have to admit that it was a little difficult. I kept wondering what she… Continue

Dr Fresh and the firefly fan club is looking for a good dose of humour, are you cheeky enough to win an I-pod?
Dr Fresh is the creator of the #1 selling children’s toothbrush in America called the firefly. It has a flashing light that acts a timer so kids know how long to brush their teeth. It comes in bright sparkly colours and kids go crazy over them, it’s nearly fool proof.

The holiday season is here and most of us are planning and preparing to make our family gatherings a time of joy and celebration. From meals to gift giving, once November 1st arrives, the rush is on and anticipation builds.
For some, it can be a stressful time, for others it is their most favorite time of year. Most years, I find myself feeling a bit of both. When I feel the stress beginning to take hold, I am always brought back to my childhood and the lesson my parents instilled in… Continue

This is a follow up to my previous Tiger Woods blog. Forgiveness is something we all need. Is that not true? I mean think about your worst transgression, now think about if everybody in America knew it. Know think about the person you are, and how you truly are not that worst trangression. You would not want anyone judging your entire life on your worst transgression. You are more than that. You are better than your worst flaw, your worst mistake. I think this needs to be said… Continue

As far as Tiger Woods goes: We all make mistakes. We all have skeletons in our closets. I say this because I am not perfect and I have no right to throw stones. The troubles Tiger is having just brings to light a larger issue that no one talks enough about. When you cheat on your spouse, you cheat on your children. he pain in this world felt by so many children of divorce or conflict over infidelity is immeasurable and so damaging. Most people will still love Tiger, and most people will still… Continue

The public perception of bullying is that bullies are acting out to cover their own fears. They may indeed be afraid, but accepting this as a reason makes bullies sound like victims of their fears -- like we're supposed to feel sorry for them and not hold them responsible for their abusive actions.
The issue is not whether bullies are afraid. Bullies bully other people to feel powerful around them and to feel power over them. Bullies start out feeling like zeroes, like nobodies. When… Continue

What I imagine goes on in my 9-month-old's mind:

Does your ex husband spoil the kids rotten? Do you look like the mean one when you try to discipline them? These scenarios are not all that uncommon.

If you and your spouse take opposing roles in dealing with your kids, you’re not alone. Many parents take on the roles of “good cop” and “bad cop” in the family. For instance, Dad is the kid’s best buddy, and mom is the nag. Or dad is strict and mom is a sympathizer.
Which “cop” is right? And should you be a cop at all?…
