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…Continue

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…Continue

These very words set the tone for how we treat people. What are we teaching our children?
WARNING: I will be ranting today! I have some major energy in the above topic. So, if you are easily offended or sensitive, please stop reading now and return for a later blog!
That said, let’s chat about tolerance versus acceptance. I see the word “tolerance” everywhere…teach kids tolerance, we need to tolerate others, human resources departments that have tolerance…

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

I'm hesitant to feed my family genetically engineered food (GMO), and now I have even more reason to avoid that kind of food engineered in a lab, some of it containing built-in pesticides like Roundup.
Now to today’s big news: Massive mammary tumors, kidney and liver damage, and other serious problems were found in rats that were fed GMO foods according to the…Continue

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…Continue

Many teens are considering dropping out of school. This article addresses this dilemma.
As a therapist who sees teenagers, I get this questioned posed to me often…Stacy, I don’t want my child to drop out of school, but they refuse to go and I don’t know what to do. What should I do? I often approach this topic from “what is your child communicating to the rest of us that we aren’t hearing?”
Have you been to high school lately? It can definitely be a bit…

Immediately after work, I drove to one fruit grocery to look for Raspberries... but when I reached the stall, I couldn't recall the name "raspberries" and instead told the lady that I wanted those berries...red in colour one, I said...

Crucial moment ... cracking my head to recall the name of "raspberries" but couldn't then.... sigh.... (need to eat more…Continue

We were in the car the other day, my son and I.
"Mom," he said. "What are you afraid of?"
What am I afraid of? Ugh. He has no idea. Frankly, I wish I didn't, either.
I'm having surgery in a couple of days - I'm not a good patient. I have a very low pain tolerance. I'm pretty much afraid of doctors, afraid of hospitals, afraid of needles, afraid of blood, afraid of just about everything except the anesthesiologist, whom I…Continue

Endocrine values askew… check. Nancy talking to her doctor about her low-energy, achy-joint, bad moods, migraine-suffering state of life… check, check,…Continue
