The Tacky Box Can Help Parents Take Charge of A Potty Mouth or Stop Kids Saying Hurtful Things

Have you ever slipped and said a tacky word in front of your child?  I know that I am guilty of this of accidentally saying something I will regret later or said something that wasn't appropriate for my children to hear.  I have always tried to be aware and watch what I say and do in front of them.  I want to make sure that my kids aren't picking up bad habits.  Believe it or…

Accepting Change Can Bring Moms Peace

In my younger days I was naive enough to think I could control change.  I’ve learned, but not quickly enough, that no one can control or stop change. And, here is an interesting little fact: Charles Darwin believed that those people who survive the ones who can adapt to ongoing change.  They are not necessarily the strongest or the smartest, but they are the survivors. That thought of survival brings me to today’s topic of change and how to understand it a little better.

Show & Tell: When Your Little Salmon Swim Upstream

She mentioned that her oldest, who has one more year to go before graduating college with a degree in engineering, has decided that even though his world is very comfortable (his parents were paying his tuition, room and board) he’s taking break to figure out what he wants to do with his…

The Truth About Bullies

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.

Is Your Ex a "Disney Land" Daddy?

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.



Vicki is the single mother of Alex (12), Ryan (8) and Jessica (6). To make ends meet, she works two jobs—as a receptionist during the week and part-time catering on weekends.

Are you the 'bad cop' or the 'good cop' with your kids?

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?…
