What has this world come to?

This story truly saddens me and I hope all the children involve get the help that they need.

Pray for all involved...

Raising Healthy Kids

  • Introduce good eating habits early in your children’s life.
  • Pay attention to your children’s weight as he or she grows. Be sure to discuss your children’s situation with your pediatrician or other healthcare provider.
  • Let your children learn to respond to internal hunger cues rather than learned social ones. Don’t worry if your kids don’t eat as much as you think they should.
  • Encourage your children to be physically active. Remember that not all physical…

WHEN YOU LOSE A CHILD

It is every parent's nightmare. Except this time, it wasn't mine, it was my 5 yr old's. His brother & I were in the children's corner at Barnes & Noble, doing homework. Per Andy's request, I let him stay in the toy section, adjacent to us. He knew where we were, we knew where he was.… Continue

Attachment Parenting or CIO?

Before becoming a parent I researched several different parenting styles. I wanted obviously to provide my child with a nurturing loving atmosphere. The parenting style that seemed right at the time for us was attachment style parenting. I chose that method because I wanted to have this unbreakable bond with my child. I wanted my child to know that I was there for whatever he needed...… Continue

Attention Children: The Bathroom Door Is Closed

Please do not stand here and talk, whine, or ask questions. Wait until I get out.



Yes, it is locked. I want it that way. It is not broken. I am not trapped.



I know I have left it unlocked, and even open at times since you were born, because I was afraid some horrible tragedy might occur while I was in there, but it's been 10 years and I want some PRIVACY.



Do not ask me how long I will be. I will…

For All Moms

We are sitting at lunch when my daughter casually

mentions that she and her husband are thinking of

"starting a family."



"We're taking a survey," she says, half-joking. "Do

you think I should have a baby?"



"It will change your life," I say, carefully keeping

my tone neutral. "I know," she says, "no more

sleeping in on weekends, no more spontaneous

vacations...."



But that is not what I meant at all. I look at my

daughter, trying to… Continue

Parents...Really Bad Stuff Is Happening On Your Trampoline!

If you have teenagers  and a trampoline, bad things are happening in your yard. And I’m not talking about broken bones and twisted ankles.

There should be a new warning label on trampolines…”WARNING! TEENAGERS WILL MAKE OUT AND MORE ON  A TRAMPOLINE AT NIGHT!” I haven’t figured out what the graphic should look like for…

Whats Important

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, When 24 hours in a day is not enough; remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.



A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and start to fill it with golf balls.



He then asked the students if the jar was full.

They agreed that it was.



The…

Web Safety for Your Kids

There is no fighting it… Our kids jump online as soon as they can, signing up for Facebook, MySpace accounts and to countless other sites unknown to us adults.  And of course, as parents, this raises legitimate concerns for cyberbullying, sexting, and other inappropriate or potentially unsafe behavior our kids might – unwittingly – exhibit while using their electronic…

Toddler Tricks - 21

Ways to Trick your Baby:



Problem:  Your kid, to put it mildly, wakes up on the wrong side of the bed.  It seems no matter what you do, you are going to be graced with a crying jag leftover from sleep.  Nothing appeases, nothing stops it.  She's just cranky when she wakes up.



Solution:  Try to get there right before she wakes up.  This has worked for me about 50 percent of the time.  It's hard to pull off because sometimes the babies will sleep for an hour, other times…

The Common Denominator

What do teachers and students have in common?  They're all people.  Too often, this similarity is overlooked if not entirely forgotten.  Teachers good and bad fall into their roles, and students, often with some resistance, follow suit.  Ignoring humanity in our school systems does no one any favors, and it only gets worse as the government focuses on test scores and statistics instead of on students.



As I considered who to highlight here, the choices seemed endless.  I could choose… Continue

As Twins Grow Up

My girls are identical twins.  I have kept them on the same schedule since birth.  They sleep at the same time, eat at the same time, watch TV at the same time, play at the same time.  Everything is the same.  They even play on the same playground toys at the same time.  It's just easier for me that way.  Plus, they don't seem to mind.  Little did I know I was instigating a mindset that is unknown to most children and that my twins will have to overcome as they grow up.…

I Will Die on Every Hill

The moment you start fighting with a toddler, you have already lost.  Everyone loses, but the parent especially.  The main problem is that a toddler will treat every minor infraction with the same amount of vigor.  It doesn't matter if they have just broken their leg or if you gave them cheerios in the wrong bowl.  When your toddler has the fighting spirit, nothing can stop them.  So the question is, how hard should we try? …
