Midnight Milkshakes, Blanket Forts, and Other Family Fun

One of the best ways to develop relationships and build confidence is to have fun together as a family.  I just discovered there is a month long celebration aimed at that very thing, strengthening families and building healthy, confident kids.  National Family Month is exactly what it sounds like, a celebration of family.   It runs annually from Mother's Day to Father's Day. 

An easy way to have fun with your kids is to remember what you enjoyed when you were their age and then do it…

Mirror Mirror: Keys To Gaining Self Confidence

As women, we can be really hard on ourselves and each other. I know every time I go out in public, I get more stares from women than men. Not necessarily because they're trying to hit on me or anything like that, but because women can be so such critics of other women and how they look.

"Girl, what she got on," "Honey she think she cute," "She think she…

Take a Compliment Like a Man

By Marjie Killeen, Contributor- Midlife Wisdom

As part of my midlife crisis, I’ve been considering the theme of empowerment. Because even though I’m on fire in many areas of my life, I sometimes feel insecure about my choices, or worry what other people think, or downplay my accomplishments.  You know who doesn’t waste time undermining themselves this way? Men!

Men are comfortable talking about…

Reflections of a Recovering Good Girl

Get More Out of Life by Ditching Your Inner Good Girl

Hi, my name is Portia and I am a recovering good girl. I think as the oldest of three children I came to my good girl tendencies naturally. At school I studied hard, tried really hard, got good grades and helped my teachers after school. I was such a good girl that during the planning of my high school’s (unsanctioned) senior skip day I was asked to collect my classmate’s money…

Affirming Words Can Go Long Way



Clean your room. Study. Go to bed. Cut the drama. Hurry up. Why’d you get a C on that test?

Clean your room. Study. Go to bed. Cut the drama. Hurry up. Why’d you get a C on that test? (I tend to repeat the same phrases when talking to my kids).

However, I’ve discovered that I…

February - The Month of Love, Mystery and Forgiveness

The month of February focuses our attention on love.  Cards are bought, candy is given, kisses abound.  What is it about love?  We simply cannot get enough of it.  “I love you” and “I’m in love with you.”  Is there a difference? Yes.  “I’m in love with you” has more infatuation and projection attached and “I love you” has more of day-to-day companionship attached.  Each has its mystery.  Mystery, by definition, cannot be completely understood.  I like the word mystery because it elevates a…

Middle school stress solution: Tae kwon do

My daughter was incredibly excited about graduating from elementary school. A budding artist, she even drew a portrait of herself and her friends with the words "We're middle schoolers now!" above it in bold print. But the beginning of the year was a disaster.

The bus route confused her. The school pace was intimidating. And then, in gym, she hesitated before passing a sheet of paper to her partner. "Give it to me, you retard," the girl said. My daughter looked back to see…

GirlMogul.com - Boosting Tween Girls' Self-Esteem

Andrea Stein started Girl Mogul as a t-shirt company in 2007 when she realized that today’s girls needed an alternative to diva and princess tees. The company’s popular blog has since grown to become an online community dedicated to encouraging tween girls’ (ages 9 to 12) success. The site – and the community encourages our daughters to dream big and reach for the stars.



As the parent of a now 13 year old daughter, I can tell you – from very recent experience – that the tween years… Continue

Show & Tell: When Your Little Salmon Swim Upstream

I was recently commiserating with a co-worker. She mentioned that her oldest, who has one more year to go before graduating college with a degree in engineering, has decided that even though his world is very comfortable (his parents were paying his tuition, room and board) he’s taking break to figure out what he wants to do with his…

The Art of Stuffing Bras.

I only stuffed my bra once.



Not bad for someone who for all of Junior High was mercilessly teased as being a carpenter's dream (flat as a board) in home room every day.



But growing up, these things certainly have their impact. Now, I didn't really care. I was one of those girls that was someone embarrassed of "growing… Continue

Fridge Door Gallery Spotlights ADHD Families and their Accomplishments

The Fridge Door Gallery celebrates families who defeat overwhelming obstacles to achieve. Living with ADHD, children and their parents’ self-esteem can take a beating- we struggle to do things the traditional way. Sometimes that puts our kids and us on the outside of what is “normal” among our friends and aquaintances in the neighborhood or school.



The Fridge Door Gallery provides a place for parents and kids to brag about their accomplishments- because we understand how hard kids… Continue
