Why Do Puzzles Make Great Learning Tools?

Yesterday when I went to pick up my son from daycare, he was playing and having a great time.  The teacher was letting all of the kids in his classroom play with puzzles and my son was trying very hard to get the puzzle pieces into the right spot.  It was fun to watch him play and learn a new skill.  I…

How to Handle Biting in Young Children (By Stacy Hladek)

I recently spent an afternoon with a good friend, who has a toddler.  While we were talking about parenting she told me her son has started biting his baby brother.  My friend said nothing she or her husband had tried is working.  Her son bit another child at childcare this week for the first time

Biting is a behavior that many toddlers display at one time or another.  It can be something that makes the adults feel frustrated and helpless.  There is hope! 

Whenever a child is…

The Cost of a Clean Home

If you’re like me, when kids came into your world you wanted everything in your home to be as clean as possible.  You probably went to great lengths to disinfect everything because you wanted your child to live in the cleanest environment.  And you may have even safely assumed that as long as the cleaning supplies you were using weren’t bothering you, they weren’t bothering your baby either.  Sadly, that’s not true.

Here are 4 of the most toxic ingredients that are found in almost…

How to Make Time Out an Effective Way to Modify Your Child’s Unwanted Behaviors

My son stayed home with me again today so that he could continue to heal and so that I could make sure that he was fever free before sending him back to daycare.  He acts like he is feeling much better today and his fever finally broke last night.  Thank goodness, I don’t like it when my baby doesn’t feel…

Kids and Technology (posted by Stacy Hladek)

Did you know that you could have a stranger in your home right at this moment that you are completely unaware is present?  If you or anyone in your home is communicating online or through texting with someone you do not know personally, then you are opening your home to a stranger.  Technology can be a wonderful tool, but it also can open our families, our children included, to new dangers.

A recent poll indicated that 90 percent of middle and high school student have…

The Liberal Catholic: Part I

View post on SingleMomStyle.com

When I first started blogging, I did a search for do’s and don’ts. It was advised not to take any religious or political stands. However, I’m not a single parent expert or anything—I just blog about my life as a single parent. And I feel that some topics certainly affect me as a parent so sorry blogging advisers. I also want to make clear that I respect all…

Improve Family Life - Spend Alone Time with Each Child

You can find serenity for your family by spending alone time with each child. Most parents who have more than one child know that one of the most precious gifts you can give a child is one on one attention. Very often in families with one or more children parents spend time with children in a group rather than on a one on one basis. When you are part of a multi-child family your children  often will get only a very little private time with you.  Quality of life in your family will get…

Is your heart heading for disaster?

Have you been told by the doctor that you have high cholesterol? Does it concern you? I have and yes it does concern me. The build-up of plaque in the arteries, called Atherosclerosis, can be very serious. With an unhealthy diet, cholesterol collects in the artery walls and can cause deadly heart attacks. I for one, would love to be around to see my grandkids, if my son ever has any that is (he is a little shy, but that’s a whole other blog…lol). In my research, I have learned that certain…

Children - The New Faces of Obesity

It’s no secret that obesity is a problem in the United States.  And in spite of the fact that a hunger problem exists as well, our population as a whole eats more and moves less than the citizens of other countries.  Sadly, it’s no longer just affecting adults, but children as well.  Even though medicine has made huge strides and people, on average, are living longer, it has been said that today’s generation of children and teenagers may not live as long as their parents will.  So,…

Chocolate Cake That Can't Be "Beet"

If you read my post last Monday, which you can access here, you know that cooking was never my favorite household chore.  It always ranked right up there with ironing and scrubbing the toilet bowl.  But the family has to eat, am I right?

Actually, it wasn’t the cooking part that I had an aversion to, nor was it wondering what to make.  I have tons of great cookbooks and recipes that have been handed down over the years so culinary ideas are not the issue.  It wasn’t even the cleanup…

One Big Happy Family. (By Sarah Senst)

How do we achieve happiness as a family, especially when you consider varying personalities, interests and communication styles? Not to mention different genders and ages, two-adult homes and one-adult homes? I recently read an article based on a book by Bruce Feiler on this very topic. He introduces some interesting facts and concepts I think worthy of sharing. In our incredibly fast paced lives, full of stress and worry how do we find peace at home?

I think most people have heard…

Are My Baby-Making Days Over?

View post on SingleMomStyle.com

Last Sunday, I went to church alone for the first time in a long time. I usually like to go with Hana, but she was at her dad's. Since it was just me, I sat myself in the back of the church. During mass, a baby was being baptized, and I was a mere 10 feet away from witnessing this special moment. First, it got me thinking about when Hana was baptized. Then I…

What Can I Do To Keep My Child or Teenager from Lying to Me Constantly?

Teenagers begin exerting their own voices and want to begin making their own choices.  Their choices may not be the choice that you agree with and they may cover up their actions to avoid getting caught.  If they are caught, they may attempt to cover up what they did and begin telling their parents a stream…

Why Do Older Children and Teens Lie to Their Parents?

Parents it is very important that you have a continuous relationship with their child as they are growing up so that when your child becomes a teenager, you will know them well enough to determine when they aren’t telling you the truth.  Kids will tell you a story if they think that they can get away with it.…
