8 Valuable Parenting Lessons I Learned From My Dog

How your pooch can teach you to be a better parent.

Our dog Duke has been so depressed this week. He's a lovable yellow lab who is always willing to run with the kids, chase a ball or go for a long walk by the river. Not this week. He lays on the couch, mopes to his bowl for his breakfast and then returns to the couch.

Do You Have Difficulty Communicating With Your Child?

Why you should learn to speak your child's language, and not the other way around.

I find myself constantly talking about communication in my office. I always ask, "what is your tone of voice?" "What is your body language saying?" "How are you delivering your message?" "What is your child trying to say through his behavior?" "What are you trying to say through your behavior?" There is a constant discussion about communication.

Yet in my own life, I continue to make some…

5 Tips To Cool Your Worries About Your Children

In light of the Bumbo Baby Seat recall, I am reminded of how much we worry as parents.

When our first-born child, Stella was only 2 hours old, I said to my husband, "You better

have a darn good relationship with her for her entire life. You may be the only

connection we have to her in her teen years." He just looked at me like I was crazy. In

his defense, I probably was a little crazy. I had just gone through labor. That said, I

clarified my statement to him…

How Important Are Teachers To A Child?

As we get ready for the return of school, it's important to remember the role that teachers play.

I have the wonderful opportunity of having many educators in my life. Several of my dearest friends are educators. Many of my colleagues work in the school setting. I knew at an early age that education would be important in my own life and pursued an education undergraduate degree. Although, I have never been a “teacher” in a classroom filled with kids, I have been an…

How To Support An Emotionally Traumatized Child

Children who have internal scars are often misunderstood.

Today was a bit of a tough day at work. I sat with a family who has weathered one of the worst storms that a person could ever imagine…childhood sexual abuse. Children, under the age of 5, traded for sex and video taped for porn. Now, a decade later, these children have to deal with their inner demons. No, they are no longer living with the people who did this to them. No, they have no contact at all with anyone from…

The "No Kill Policy": How To Control Anger As A Parent

When you get mad at your kids, just remember this "no kill policy."

 

Since I have been in private practice, I have often said to families: "I have a no kill policy." Parents and children just look at me with the oddest looks.

Then, I go on to explain: "Sometimes, especially in our families, we have really strong emotions that make us angry and want to attack the ones we love. Strong emotions can often times…

I Could Use A Reality Check - Topic: Positive vs Negative Thinking

I'm bringing this question to my virtual audience because I'm trying not to get my lunch friends all riled up!

History: I broke my leg on Memorial Day and was just released by the Dr last week. He said to keep babying it some until it stops hurting; maybe another month of support when driving or on longer walks.

I think of myself as a very optimistic and positive person, stopping just short of "Pollyanna". I think that my healing during these past few months was helped by my…
