Nothing brings out the mama (or papa) bear in parents quite like learning someone has been hurting your child. In an instant, all reason goes out the window and we become determined to do whatever it might take to protect our little cub.
That instinct is exactly why most parents who learn their child is being bullied have to initially resist the urge to go out and bully the little jerk that is hurting their child right back.

How do I say this without sounding like I'm insensitive? How do you express to someone that you see so much potential in them and can't understand why they don't see it in themselves?
The bottom line is...you can't.
One of my Besties favorite thing to say is "you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink." It…Continue

I am a mom of 2 kids. Despite being a cool mom (yes, I am) I faced a few challenges as a new mother.I found most of new mothers go through these funny experiences.

A new concerned mother scratches her head several times a day wondering,…

We all lie period. For different reasons at different levels at different times and to different people. I've talked about this before. Our current President is a huge example of lies. So why should we expect that our kids would not engage in this deception as well?
Now that my daughter is older she has moments where she will say to me "oh I can…Continue

People often wonder why I decided to have children, or more specifically so many children. The answer is quite simple, so that one day I could relax while someone else took care of the house. I hated doing dishes as a child, and I wanted to pass that experience along to my own kids.
Just kidding! I simply felt…Continue
