Parenting

It’s time for another round of The Blame Game

The other night, an incident that happened a couple years resurfaced at the dinner table.  My husband, one of my daughters, Leigha and I were discussing how Leigha was able to text me when she didn’t have anything to text me with.  She informed me that she used the IPad, which then was followed up by her father asking “well,…

Mom always liked you best

The statement, “Mom always liked you best,” was often repeated years ago by Tommy Smothers in the comedy act he and his brother created.  Unfortunately, that statement is not always funny.  It may be, or appear to be, true.  Several things factor into the challenge parents have to be impartial. Sometimes the personality of the…

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…

3 lessons my garden taught me about parenting

We have a garden in our back yard. Things grow very well in it. Unfortunately, not food. The strawberries we produced were eaten by rabbits before we got to them.

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…

Buckle ’em up!

If you have made it a rule in your vehicle that no one goes anywhere until seat belts are buckled, you may have noticed that your kids actually feel uncomfortable if they’re unbuckled. But while parents have been increasingly diligent about securing their children in car seats, a new report referenced in an online story at today.com…

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…

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…
