Babies having babies: I’m in love

It was just yesterday, or so it seems, that my wife and I were raising young children of our own—four in all. How time flies. Now, they’re all grown and our second oldest, Josh and his wife, Autumn, recently brought our first grandchild into the world. That was very nice of them. I don’t know who said it first, but I love the statement,…

"Yikes! My child was rude!!”

The chances are great that every parent reading this blog has, on occasion, been embarrassed by the rude behavior of their child. From time to time, your children will interact with adults who are not in their lives on a regular basis, especially during holidays and vacations.  Now is a good time for a little proactive training and…

Are your kids getting enough sleep?

According to the National Sleep Foundation, American teenagers require about 9-1/4 hours of sleep a night, yet only 8 percent of them are getting it.

I’d send out cards with yearly letters and photos, make videos for the grandparents, and shop for unique and well thought out presents. By Christmas Eve I felt exhausted and crabby but I was determined to make Christmas feel like Christmas.…

Ahh, parenting…the beautiful letdown

As moms, we have a lot on our plate running a household!  Just look at the start of the day.  You make sure the kids get up in the morning and ready for school.  You ask “Are you all ready to walk out the door?” and of course they say “Yes” which really means I still have to brush my teeth, do my hair, and study…

On being a super hero

For Father’s Day, my husband received a key chain inscribed with “Dad-a daughter’s first love and a son’s first hero.” That reality became clear this week when my son came home with a second grade homework assignment to write about a hero of his.  He told me he was trying to decide between New York…

The push-over parent

Dr. Dan Kindlon, child psychologist and author observes,  “Many parents today identify with being young and have trouble assuming the mantle of authority.” Dr. Kindlon is referring to parents who have abdicated the throne.  More accurately stated, these parents have given authority to their children. Kids are consulted about…

Talking with your kids about their day

You probably know what it’s like. Your child comes home from school, tosses their backpack in the hall and mumbles a “Hi”. You ask how their day was and they say “fine” and that’s pretty much your conversation. It doesn’t have to be like that. iMom.com has 18 after school conversation…
