With my oldest child finishing up the 2nd grade school year, I've been a little reflective on my involvement in his school life and wondering why more parents aren't actively involved. My experience with my son's charter school this year has been rocky to say the least, and has forced me to make the decision to find a new school -- more on that in another post. My 8-year-old son, Cameron, is a straight "A" student, never had a single bad behavior report and is loved by all the staff and…Continue

Dads are People Too.
In honor of Father’s Day and all fathers, I wanted to write a bit about their importance.
I recently learned a new term. It is called “father-void” homes. A father-void home is one where there is an identified father but he has no presence in the home or in the lives of his children. This is compared to “father-less” homes which in the past has meant “no father to be found.” In most cases, there are father’s, they just may not be present,…Continue

Are you alone and wondering how you'll be celebrating the holidays this year? Whether you're divorced or widowed, a single parent or the spouse of a deployed serviceperson, it most likely seemed easier when you had a partner to share in the planning. But now that you'll be the one creating the holiday mood, take advantage of the freedom you have to develop customs that are just right for you. …

If you are someone who is looking for single parents help, this might surprise you! There is always a bright side to any situation; here a 9 year old boy explains what he sees as the bright side of divorce. Yes, there can be a bright side to divorce. And isn’t it wonderful that a child can see it? As the saying goes, “Out of the mouths of babes”.

As a mom, especially an overprotective mom, I have that need to shield my teens from anything and everything that can hurt them. Broken glass, boxes of twinkies, school bullies, drunken drivers, burning buildings, pubescent boys who only have their penis and girls' boobies on the brain. But how, how do I shield my teenage girls from their father?
How do I…

Today I took my first steps inside a gym (to actually use the equipment rather then the joining process or to have a look around) for a loooooooooooooooooong time. The last time I worked out in one was when I lived in London and I used to go to a Government run gym in Swiss Cottage, North London maybe 8 years ago or so! Blimey! Where do the years go?!
'The Lawyer' and I both became members of a gym company here aptly (and laughingly) called…

Finally! Our representatives have grown a pair and have drawn a line in the sand against the fast food industry, on our behalf. In a nearly unanimous vote by city officials, fast food operators in San Francisco can no longer give away toys in kid's meals, unless they meet certain standards...much higher than what these restaurants…Continue

As most of you know, my oldest daughter has reactive attachment disorder (RAD). We recently spent a week in Colorado at a camp for kids with RAD. You can read about it at It Takes a Village. We learned that our kids are broken,
but they can be healed with love, nurturing and a lot of structure and
discipline. We also learned that
as parents, we aren’t bad parents, we are amazing parents…we practice…

Right at this very moment, I am sitting at one of those play places where the kids can eat (only the establishment’s food…no outside food allowed) then run and climb and go crazy. We came here specifically so the kids could go crazy at a place other than our house.
I brought my computer to take care of a few things, but couldn’t help but observe the dynamics of a place like this and write about them. After eating their lunch (kind of expensive for what you get, by the way), they were…Continue
