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…

Our Children Can Grow Wings

If you want to help your children build themselves, you must act without seeming to act. Through gestures, small words, and most of all through your own example, your children will gradually grow wings.

The Importance Of Interaction And Nurturing

While reviewing an ARTICLE from Reuters titled “Study shows consistent benefit of early daycare”, I was reminded of the challenges parents face while evaluating options for entrusting their most precious beings in the hands of a childcare provider. There are so many studies out there though that either support or discredit the concept of “childcare” versus full-time parenting.

The Parental Role vs.…

My Baby Can Beat Up Your Baby (and Other Ridiculous Comparisons)

Standing in line at the bank today, I got asked the question I have come to dread: "So, is he walking yet?"After responding with the same defensive "No--but he's really close!" that I have been saying for over two months now, she launches into this big story about how her niece is only nine months old and already walking. She says it like she just composed her first symphony or something. "That's nice," I tell her. What I'm thinking is, "I bet she's an ugly baby."



My son is smart,… Continue

Why are Ethics Important In a Business

This is a true story and I hope it has never happened to you! Enjoy the read & I'd love your responses!

Inside the Preschool Mind

Perhaps the alternate title for this post should be something like: why your preschooler doesn’t take a coat when it’s cold outside. Although I don’t have children yet, I’ve been around enough of them to know that they often do not follow the directions or precautions you give them, no matter how many times you repeat yourself. So why is that? Are they just choosing to ignore you? Or is there something different about the functioning of their brain that makes it difficult for them to plan… Continue

31 Day Comment Challenge: Becoming a Better Blog Citizen

On my library blog, I've been participating in the 31 Day Comment Challenge and it has been inspirational and enlightening.



Normally, I blow thematic challenges off or I lose interest after a couple of days because of my ability to become absolutely and totally obsessed by nothing at all. Or, what my sister calls, adult onset ADH-shiny! However, this challenge has… Continue
