80 Tools To Help you Succeed at Parenting

80 Tools To Help you Succeed at Parenting

As adults, we’re pretty awesome at a lot of things. We tackle big challenges in our careers, our finances, and our health. We build impressive things. We write legal documents. We manage teams and conferences and estates and classrooms. But when it comes to parenting, we often feel surprisingly unsure whether we know what we’re doing at all. We love these kids of ours with a love so fierce and strong, and yet, half the time we shake our heads and wonder if we’re getting it all wrong and why this parenting gig is so darn hard??? Raising these...
The 10 Best Internet Safety Rules for Kids + Free Printable

The 10 Best Internet Safety Rules for Kids + Free Printable

The other day my youngest son was playing a popular game on the Xbox One. I overheard the conversations a few kids and my son were having and he said something that surprised me since we've talked about internet safety quite a bit. He mentioned that he was only 12 and that he was home with his mom and that he couldn't do something because he wasn't allowed to. It shocked me. So I had him turn the game off and we discussed again about telling people online that you don't know personally, any type of personal information. Parents don't have to...
15 Books Your High Schooler Should Read Before Graduating

15 Books Your High Schooler Should Read Before Graduating

I have a high schooler (cry, weep, pout!) who is going into 11th grade this upcoming school year! I'm absolutely amazed at the lack of required reading anymore. I talked a couple weeks ago about how summer is creeping up on us and low and behold, summer vacation is officially here. At least for our school district. I think I've already gained at least 30 new gray hairs in the past 2 weeks. My kids are at each other's throats and I'm resisting the urge to grab them by theirs….totally kidding…. I only think about doing that in my...

Everything You Need to Make Working from Home Work For You

Are you one of the following? Jump in the car with a travel mug of coffee, battling traffic before you battle office politics… Stay-at-home mom who hasn’t had a real paycheck in years (and yes, those moments with your children are priceless, but you still dream of having way to contribute to the family budget)… Or are you working from home and you’re wondering how to find focused work time so you’re not pulled in so many directions… You don’t want to spend the next few years like this.

15 Books for Your Middle Schooler to Read this Summer

Summer is creeping up on us parents. Go ahead, scream, you know you want to! I've already started a countdown calendar for when they go back to school. I love my kids… I do! I love my sanity just slightly more. Okay, possibly a whole lot more. Every year we set out to have the boys pick out so many books to read and they have to write at least one essay on the book. Every single year, I (yes me) drop the ball and forget about the essay. It's really hard to believe that in the fall I'll have a 6th grader and it will be his last year as a...
5 Simple Ways to Encourage Your Child

5 Simple Ways to Encourage Your Child

Children are at an age where they need lots of love and encouragement to grow up into healthy young adults. This is one thing I'm not afraid to admit that I struggle with. Growing up the only person who really encouraged my brother and I was my mom. My dad was raised with a firm hand and was more authoritative instead of encouraging. So I have tried to be more like my mother, but it's hard. Especially when you've stressed to your children how you expect them to act. I have a little bit more of the authoritative way of thinking than I would...
