Adults Behaving Badly

Unknown

Unfortunately, we hear on the news all the time about parents full-out losing their shit on the sidelines of their kids' sporting events.  A bad call can somehow turn supposed "adults" into the biggest meatheads on the planet.  It's both despicable and embarrassing. And I thought I'd seen some pretty horrific behavior…

Teaching Your Toddler How to Have Good Manners: Please and Thank You

Do you want your child to be polite in public?  Do you want them to say “please” and “thank you” when they are offered things?  If so, it is important that you begin teaching your child how to have appropriate manners early on.  In fact, the earlier you begin teaching your child the better off you will be in…

Act Like An Adult, Not Like An Idiot

If you have a kid in any kind of organized sport, then you've most likely witnessed some pretty awful sportsmanship at one time or another.  It's bad enough when it's another kid displaying the rotten behavior, but when it's an adult?  Well, that's just the lowest of the low.  And this past weekend I had the misfortune of observing THE most jack asinine…

Goatdog and the Stolen Cheerios

The mystery of how I can wanna squeeze and hug our beastly goof of a dog one minute and then release him to a pack of hungry grizzlies the next continues to baffle me.  Yes, Goatdog is doing his damnedest to make sure that our love-hate relationship doesn't die out too quickly.  Sometimes he's my big, furry buddy, and then other times, he's a prickly thorn in my side…

Teaching children good manners is a required item on any parents “to do” list. Children can learn to be respectful and courteous at a very young age. Instead of making learning manners a cumberson task, teach them how with a fun, easy to read story that has a princess, a dragon, a fairy and a wizard. It might even be fun for you to send your little…

The Breakfast Buzz Kills



Do you ever wanna just walk away from your kids in public and act like you don't know who the hell they are?  No?  Surely that's not just me.  Call me Mommy Dearest if you will, but when my kids have a brain fart and act like complete Neanderthals who've never heard of manners, I sometimes think it would be easier to point and stare and pretend like I'm disgusted by the horrible excuse…

The Problem With Kids

Is unfortunately, usually, their parents. 

One of the things that I noticed pretty quickly when we moved back to this area is that in the South people tend to live by the rule of "do as I say, not as I do" – especially when it comes to RSVPs.  I have

been bitten on more than one occassion by parents who didn't RSVP for birthday parties. I don't mean responding…

What *I* would teach at Cotillion

I returned from a conference recently and was reminded of the moment back in May where I (apparently) lost my senses and agreed to let my 12

year old attend Cotillion classes. Truth be told, I think they

were having a hard time filling the class, so they started calling down

the list. Our last name starts with "D".. we were doomed (no pun

intended).
Anyhow.. there it sat on my desk.. almost as complete as

a wedding invitation except this outfit would be a…

Potty Mouth Mommy

I tried not to swear in front of my oldest son well into elementary school, out of fear he would repeat it and I’d get the evil eye from all the good mothers, who said things like “golly” and “oopsy daisy” when they gouged their skulls in the corner of their kitchen cabinet, or slammed their hand in their car door in the school parking lot. But James would never repeat a bad word. He just knew. Vincent, however, is a parrot. Nothing can be said around Vincent that you don’t want repeated. He… Continue

Respecting Those in Authority- a Call Out to Mothers

Moms tend to set the moral barometer in the home, teaching children about table manners, acceptable social skills and the need to respect adults and those in authority. We navigate the sassy years, the rebellious years, and the defiant years believing that with any luck, the values we’ve instilled in our offspring will take root and bear fruit. That they will learn to engage in lively discussions without becoming boorish, that they will listen respectfully to teachers, professors and eventually… Continue

Six Ways To Get Your Toddler To Sit At The Dinner Table

Friendliness in an Unfriendly World

August 14th, 2008



On a typical afternoon I often find myself pushing my son in his stroller as we buy our groceries, go to the bank, pick up our dry-cleaning and shop at the local stores on our busy street. Sitting in his front row seat, meandering through the crowd, my three year old happily says “hello”, “hi” and occasionally “nice dog” to the many people passing by. Sadly, I have to report that few will reply, or say hello back or acknowledge his attempt at being… Continue
