How do you handle Bully’s with your kids?

There is a bully boy in my daughters class and the other day he tripped her on purpose and she fell. I have all kinds of emotions bubbling right now. My first instinct is to go up to the kid and tell him “trip my daughter again and see what happens to you.” But, I …

Max Diaries:  You’re Not Entitled

Max Diaries: You’re Not Entitled

by Christina Cox, new mom blogger No one is entitled to anything. You have to work at everything you want in life.

Does your child have restaurant manners?

What is with parents letting their kids act like wild animals inside restaurants? Screaming, whining, and making a mess everywhere.

Small Victories

Since getting my kids the Sonicare toothbrushes, I feel like they’re teeth are so much cleaner! They wait until they get the music that tells them their done (which is about 5 times longer than they have ever brushed in their lives!). Small victory now, hopefully big victory in the future! Jen

Max Diaries: Wash Mommy’s Mouth Out

by Christina Cox, new mom blogger I swore I would never do it. But, then I did it. In my defense, I really don’t do it that often. But still, I did it. I cussed. I cussed right in front of my son. And, I’m embarrassed to say that it was the worst of the …

How do you show your kids you love them?

When I was growing up my mom showed me how much she loved me by always being there. She knew all my friends, she was never preoccupied and she was at everything that I did. Whether it was cheerleading, tap recitals, or volleyball. My house was the fun house where all the kids would gather …

Recovering picky eaters

I have “recovering” picky eaters in my house. I made the mistake (yes Hindsight is 20/20) to cater to my kids likes and dislikes when it comes to food. One wants pancakes and fruit, no problem. The other wants eggs and bacon, no problem. I am working on making only ONE family dinner now. NO …
