My niece and son (who are the same age) recently spent a week together in the same house during a family vacation. It was a bit of a social experiment, as they are both incredibly smart but have wildly different personalities.
In the end, they did better than any of us could have expected: They played…

In today’s time, every toddler and growing kid is a gadget freak. You cannot help but buy them gadget or video game of their choice. However, wouldn’t it be better if you provide them with educational video game that not serves their interest but also educates them and makes them smarter!

Back when I was growing up, our home was always clean. I don't mean tidy. I mean practically white-glove-test-clean. Some used to call my mother "The White Tornado." She'd just shrug and laugh it off. The thing is, though, I don't recall ever seeing her spend endless days cleaning. In fact, most days in the summertime…Continue

Have you ever come across a post on social media that changed the way you see your world? I did, just this week. I came across a post on my newsfeed that showed dirty, rough hands. It had a story attached, that always piques my interest, so I read it and it hit me hard. My husband and I do so much for our kids so they never go without,…Continue

Whenever I used to ask my mother what she wanted for a birthday or Christmas, she would always answer the same thing: "Nothing." If pressed, she would tell me that all she wanted was for us to be happy.
It's the sort of non-answer that a lot of Moms give. Yes, parents want their children to be happy,…

He was already learning about animals and the different sounds that they make at daycare when we decided to pull him out.

I often wish that I knew another language so that I could speak it all the time to my son and he could pick it up. (Yes, I know I could make this happen, but I can only handle so many personal challenges in a year.) I am grateful that he is learning Spanish in school, and I am super proud of him when he speaks it. It is something I want him to keep up with.
Years ago when my daughter was 10, I realized that my relationship with my daughter was much smoother and easier than that of the average or typical relationship. Yes! I said easier. I have always been told, wait for it, things will change as soon as she’s a teenager.
Fast forward to age 14, the biggest challenge for myself was that she thought she was “ugly” because she has always been very tall for her age. Those feelings quickly changed after she became more involved in sports.…Continue

If any of you happened to see my Facebook status on Monday you know that I faced a motherhood dilemma.
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. I get home and go to the fridge to get our 3-year-old a snack and guess what I see in the fridge? His lunch!! Mind you, I asked him like ½…Continue
