A lot of people that see me out with my daughter comment on how full and shiny her hair is, especially at her age. Now, although it is true that genetics plays a role in your child’s hair type, rate of growth etc., for your child’s best hair to show through, it simply boils down to their diet (garbage in –> garbage out). Your child’s hair reflects their overall health, so feeding them junk food, sugary drinks and carbonated beverages will make their hair brittle and dry. So, before you go…Continue

Dear well-meaning, loving, kind people who offer my daughter sweets,

Every once in awhile something happens with us, and I’m torn about writing it. As a blogger, I don’t want my blog to necessarily come off as doom and gloom, but these things do come up. So bear with me as I get this off my chest. Perhaps it will help another parent out there.

This was a weekend full of sports in my family. My 12 year old had a basketball game and my 7 year old had a soccer game and swim meet. As Rachel Macy Stafford says, I love to watch my children play.

Regardless of his reasons for joining a team or for playing a sport (uh, maybe because…Continue

So much so that she is very protective of her sister. Being a mental health professional helped me through this…Continue
