Thankful Thursday: Back to School!

I cannot be the only one…who is thankful their child has gone back to school after a long, long winter holiday.

I could almost hear the sighs of relief as weary mothers and overwhelmed fathers dropped their children off at the schoolyard.  I could see the corners of the parents mouths turned up, readily offering…

A Polar Vortex Punch of Reality


Coming back from a family vacation is never a fun thing.  The packing, the travel, the crabby kids -- they all add up to one giant pain in the ass.  It pretty much makes you forget that you were even on vacation at all.  But this recent sucker punch back to reality after our New Year's trip to…

Texting with the Shorties


As a parent, technology is often my worst enemy.  Not only does it turn my son into a zombified video game addict half the time, but it also gives me gray hairs worrying about the prospect of someone sending a damn naked picture to one of my middle schoolers.  (*Gasp!!!*)  However, I'm starting to…

School Avoidance (Part 2 of 2)

As I mentioned in my previous blog, we have had an increase in calls to our Family Support Line related to children refusing to go to school. If you did not read the previous blog, it would be a good place to start regarding general information on heading off school avoidance in children.

What is school avoidance? The website, Human Illnesses, defined school avoidance as “when children and teens repeatedly stay home from school or are repeatedly sent home from school, because of…

Juggling the School Holiday

I cannot be the only one...who, as a working mama, associates school holidays with a mad scramble to find someone to watch their child; making phone calls calling in favors, while dropping discreet reminders of something you did for that person in the recent past. Harboring hopes that the person you decide to ask will offer their assistance before you have to resort to begging and making future promises of your services when needed.…

School Avoidance (Part 1 of 2)

We have had three calls to our Family Support Line in the last month related to children refusing to go to school. It occurred to me that this might be a good topic to address in the blog. In the twenty years that I have been working with children and families, I have noticed that school avoidance seems to rise around the holidays. I believe there are a few reasons for the peak in school avoidance around this time of year. The first is that the semester is finishing up and the stress…

Trying to Keep My "Cool"


I swear it wasn't that long ago that my kids wanted to do EVERYTHING with me.  But lately, I'm starting to realize that maybe I'm not quite as cool as I once thought I was.  (*What the hell?!!*)  Fifth grade is bringing on a whole new desire for independence, and friends are…

Fair or Homogenized Holidays?

I cannot be the only one...who wonders if removing any real discussions of religious holidays from our children's public schools, in an attempt to not push religion and/or not create an uncomfortable learning environment (I'm not really sure that either of these are the reasons), is limiting our children's…

The School Drop Off Zone

I cannot be the only one....who is sometimes frightened by her own kind, as in mommy drivers.  Every weekday morning, as we enter my son's elementary school, there is an especially treacherous area of the parking lot: the drop off zone.  As I attempt to safely pass the drop off zone, my head on a swivel looking for an…

Are You Ready For The Homework Power Struggle?

For many parents the new school year also means the return of a familiar question, followed by what I will call “The Homework Power Struggle”. It starts off something like this…”Did you do your Homework?”….”I don’t have any homework!” AAAAAAAAAAAH!!!! You know they have homework or at least something to study besides the text messages coming in every 5…

Isn't there a better way? A rant on standardized testing...

     In the newspaper today the MCAS results are listed, every school and the percentage of children who scored "proficient" or above. (MCAS is the required standardized in Massachusetts.) On the top of the page are the schools who had the highest percentage of children deemed "advanced" - and the lowest. I've never been a fan of standardized tests, but this is the first time it has really bothered me to see these numbers. All this…

Preschool Teaching Tools For Toddlers

Last week, we made the decision to withdraw my son from daycare.  I am sure that he will miss  his friends at daycare; however, he will get plenty of social interaction several times a week at church.  He is excited that he is going to be able to spend all of his time with mommy.  I asked him if he wanted to go to “Mommy’s Preschool” and he…
