Do You Want a Spanking?!

discipline

  I hate whining. Like hate with a capital ‘I’m going to rip my hair out if I hear you whine again.’ I literally turn into the Incredible Hulktress and rip off my apron when I hear a kid whining from another room. I also kind of feel like the girl from ‘The Exorcist’ where …

Is Your School Great with ADHD, or Just Good with Them?

Photo compliments of break.things at Flickr.

  Due to the social worker aspects of my previous jobs I have spent a crap-ton of time in schools working with kids.  I have watched kids have things that are unspeakable or highly inappropriate which is a major part of what led me to doing teacher education on “hard kids”….and even those that aren’t.  …

Has Parenting Really Changed…And Are Our Kids More Lazy?

Photo compliments of NotoriousJEN at Flickr.

  This week I was slightly retrospect on my childhood, the things that we did, and the stuff that I am, quite frankly, surprised we survived.  I can remember riding down the 15 foot tall mound of dirt with our bikes until we went so vertical that we were thrown over the handlebars.  Or when …

Are We Doing Everything We Can for Our ADHD Kiddos?

Photo compliments of ADHD CENTER at Flickr.

  Almost all parents love their kiddos, and even their kids that are diagnosed with ADHD.  But lets be honest, they can be challenging to the Nth degree.  Most of us feel like “I’m doing EVERYTHING!!!” But I wonder, are we?  Maybe we are doing 95% of everything we can do, but there is still …

Should Kids Have Cellphones

Photo compliments of MargaretNapier at Flickr.

  Many parents have bumped into the question of whether they should allow their children to have cell phones.  The allure of “always having a way to reach them” tantalizes many parents into adding a line for $9.99 and unlocks a host of new issues to handle.  Data, texting, the newest cell phone, the fact …

Case Study: My Son and Whining

Photo compliments of Photo Gallery at Flickr.

  One of my sons best attributes is his connection with his emotions.  He can be very sweet, empathic and thoughtful…especially for a 4 year old.  He has always been quick to tend to his little sister and think of others when they are sad.  He experiences pure unadulterated joy of things that surprises me …

Condoms and Kids – Should They Have Them?

Photo compliments of Paul-Keller at Flickr.

  I was reading an article today discussing a schools decision to give condoms to kids at a Junior High School.  Many of the comments were polarized on both sides of the fence with some saying that kids will have sex anyways so you may as well provided them. Others  noted that by giving condoms …

Turning Annoying Kids Habits into Money-Making Profit

Photo compliments of samantha celera at Flickr.

                Recently I was reminded the value of taking a look at that little stuff that my kids do that irritated me.  My oldest daugther Anna has had a seemingly annoying habit of tying knots on anything that she can.  I’ve walked in on my daugther and her …
