The Happiest Place on Earth? Yes? No? Maybe So?

I don't want to cut my child's hair

I’ve discovered through talking to other mum’s that, cutting or trimming their child’s hair is a very stressful ordeal so they just don’t do it. However, this is an activity that is necessary for the health of your child’s hair  especially in the following cases:

  1. You relaxed your child’s hair and now you want to transition your child back to natural. It is a lot easier to manage one texture of hair and keep it healthy than two. However, it can be traumatic for…

What's going on with my child's hair?

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…

NO KIDS, NO CLUE!

Why you shouldn’t be upset when people who don’t have kids criticize the way you parent.

Before becoming a mom, I was one of those people that would shake my head in disapproval when I saw a temper tantrum in a restaurant. I would dish out advice about how to discipline a child…

Dear Relatives, Here's Why You Can't Give My Kid Cake

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

I would love to give my daughter cake just as much as you would. I would love to give her cheese cake on my birthday. I would love to give her more than one tiny bite of one little Swedish fish for Valentine’s Day. I want to say yes to her, and I want to say yes to you when you offer to give her a bite…

Parenthood: Push or Pull?

Parenthood is an aberration of insanity. In a sense, it's its own mental affliction or state of mind. It's like living with a never-ending battle between push & pull within your brain. Being faced with new challenges in every waking moment, it's like running stuck in overdrive, turning the brain into a computerized robot of sorts. Input challenge, output choice of push or a pull. Yet, as with all computers there's always the occasional viruses, glitches, & freezes. Some parents have way… Continue

Hard Conversations: Discussing Death with a Child

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.

Sunday night, Alex asked if I would snuggle with him in bed. I said fine, as the boys had Monday off from school. I’m not as strict about sleep on…

A Conscious Approach to Youth Sports

soccer

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. I have grown so much from the days when my 12 year old was just getting into sports - when my ego came roaring out to the field, the court, the pool - and I wanted him to excel at all costs. Regardless of his reasons for joining a team or for playing a sport (uh, maybe because…

NIP SIBLING RIVALRY IN THE BUD!

I am a very recent mom to two beautiful daughters. When I conceived my second child, I started to feel anxious and worried about how my older daughter would treat her younger sibling.

My second baby came into this world last year and it’s safe to say that even though there was a little bit of jealousy, my older daughter took on really well to her younger sister. So much so that she is very protective of her sister. Being a mental health professional helped me through this…
