Have you been thinking about changing some habits but just can't seem to get started or when you start you can't stick to the new routines? Are you feeling like these are just things you are going to have to live with? I have been there and I can say that with some focus and mindful choices all is not lost.

What is wrong with my kids is a question I ask myself at least 10 times a day! Anyone here with me? Don’t lie!

Disclaimer: I am a rookie at this.
True, this isn't my first time at the rodeo, my son will be 21 this year!
Raising a tween boy, however, does not compare to raising a tween girl.
At least not in my opinion.
Given that I am a rookie at this, I asked other moms who have done what I am currently doing.
