Scenario; I had asked our kindergartener ½ a dozen times if he placed his lunch in his backpack and to which he replied, yes, each time. So, I drop the kiddos off at school.

Abusive kids

Why do some kids turn out to be really abusive, bullying their own siblings and using profane language?

I guess its bcoz they've seen their parents using profanity, they get the liberty to do so. Well if so, that's the case with our kids as well. Its been months I am trying to stop them from being so irritable and over-reactive, but their nature of throwing tantrums all the time doesn't go at all, and as a mother I question myself, where did I go wrong.

The father has the…

Teach kids About Money At An Early Age

Many would argue that the first 5-years of life are the most developmentally important years in a persons life, both physically and mentally. Of course, as adults, we continue to grow and develop and become the teachers of the younger generation. The earlier argument is based on the idea that no matter how much education and experience you gain as adults, there is something about the teachings from those first years that have been imprinted on our DNA and is difficult to alter.

What to do when your kids don't want to listen???

So, my oldest daughter is getting older and with that she wants to make more decisions on her own. I have to realize that she is getting older as much as I don't want to!

It seems like it was yesterday when it was just her and I. Now, she has friends and those baby moments are just memories. I don't want to loose one… Continue
