Understanding growth stages of your baby

Becoming a parent is an incredible privilege. Sure, it can get pretty stressful and overwhelming at times, but if you really think about it, the responsibility of guiding and watching over the life of another human being is pretty amazing. You get to bear witness to some of life’s most important milestones along the way. We’re not necessarily talking about big events like getting their license or graduating from uni, but those small but equally significant events in your…

Key to Your Child’s Heart

As children gradually grow, they learn to recognize and understand a particular situation and emotions related to it. They learn the difference between anger and frustration and put words to explain what they are feeling inside. Children must learn to recognize what’s going on in their mind and what they feel inside their heart. This proper equilibrium will help children in dealing with different situations.

Why #ichoose Scentsy

Before I joined Scentsy I was struggling working 2 jobs and practically homeless. After some mis-communication over parking tickets my husband and I decided to work on our marriage. One of the things I made clear was that I wanted to be independent and continue to work from home, but also make money from home.  The kids were in daycare and my…

Where did that skill come from?

Like a lot of parents, I often think about the nature/nurture influences on my son. In addition to his daddy's captivating eyes will he inherit a love of playing music, too? My little guy has already showed some proficiency at telling stories like his Mom, but will that skill…

On Raising a Bilingual Child

THE-BILINGUAL-BABY

Do you feel the intense pressure to make sure that your child knows how to speak his/her mother tongue?

Because I do.

I remember that even when I was pregnant, my family members would continuously remind me about the importance of Olive learning how to speak her native Chinese. I never really thought too much about it – I didn’t think it would be too…

A Picture is worth a thousand words, a story is worth a thousand pictures

I recently read an article in the ‘Pathways to Family Wellness’ where Joseph Chilton Pearce, best selling author on child development, discusses how imagination can save our children from becoming violent.  He explains, “The child without imagination is subject to the immediate sensory environment bombarding them, without any alternatives. If his sensory environment is unpleasant, demeaning, insulting or threatening, his survival drive gives him no choice but to…

What are Infant Developmental Milestones and Are They Important?

Many parents often wonder if their child is behind, on schedule, or ahead for their age of development.  Milestones were created to be used as a guide for parents and health care professionals to determine if a child needs additional help to meet delayed milestones and use them to determine if a child has a possible…

Learn Why Books Are Important for Your Baby’s Development?

Babies begin to hear your voice around 16 after they are conceived.  So they begin learning how to listen while inside of the womb.  As, your babies hearing develops they will begin hearing other sounds besides their mommy’s voice and can even recognize those sounds once he or she is born.  A baby is similar to a sponge and takes in everything that he or she hears or sees, even before they are born.  If you don’t want your child to exposed to certain language or behaviors, you should…

How to Treat Mommy in an Emergency

It was Saturday morning, so after a long, stressful week I was looking forward to taking a run around the block. By "run" I mean "mostly walk," but I managed to break into a slow jog a couple of times along the way. (I'm not much of a runner. My theory is that my ancestors were royalty from England, so it is not in my blood to be active or athletic in any way. But I occasionally attempt some sort of physical activity in order to avoid dropping dead of a laziness-induced heart… Continue

Speech Therapy Has Begun

For those of you who don't already know, my youngest son, Mason has started speech therapy. Today is his second session and I'm hoping that he'll become comfortable enough to start trusting the therapist and following her directions. He is a stubborn child and has learned to get around the whole speaking thing. A part of me felt awful…

Springing into Spring - Time for a Fresh Start!

Spring is just around the corner!  To most of us, spring represents a time for freshness, growth and re-birth.  Flowers start to bloom, animals emerge from hibernation, and birds return to the north from their winter homes to nest, procreate, and chirp away from morning ‘til dusk.

In most parts of the country, days become longer, weather becomes milder, and many people emerge from their own winter hibernations and spend less time indoors.  The warmer weather…

Are High-Achieving Parents Pushing Kids too Hard?

Should a three year-old be getting tutored in math and reading? And can this tutoring really help give them an edge in school? Apparently the parents who have signed their tots up for Junior Kumon think so. This question is at the heart of a social media firestorm that continues to rage after a recent New York Times…

As Twins Grow Up

My girls are identical twins.  I have kept them on the same schedule since birth.  They sleep at the same time, eat at the same time, watch TV at the same time, play at the same time.  Everything is the same.  They even play on the same playground toys at the same time.  It's just easier for me that way.  Plus, they don't seem to mind.  Little did I know I was instigating a mindset that is unknown to most children and that my twins will have to overcome as they grow up.…

Think About What You Say

After two intense weeks of tantrums, screaming, flopping, crying and whining, my kids have finally had a language breakthrough.  For the past four days or so, they have not only been pointing at objects and telling me what they are, but they have been connecting abstract ideas together, using adjectives and nouns to specify their meaning, and using verbs and nouns to create basic sentences and to tell me what they are doing.



They’ve got the command down pat.



“Look,…

Defiant Children and Natural Consequences

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…
