One of my daily duties is supervising lunch for one of our grade-levels. Earlier in the year, I must admit, I was at my wits-end trying to figure out how to turn what could potentially be a fairly chaotic, unstructured time into…Continue

My son stayed home with me again today so that he could continue to heal and so that I could make sure that he was fever free before sending him back to daycare. He acts like he is feeling much better today and his fever finally broke last night. Thank goodness, I don’t like it when my baby doesn’t feel…Continue

Does your child constantly nag you for food? Does this happen only at particular times…or all of the time? Do you eventually give in due to exhaustion? Or perhaps a headache? What is his/her temperament like? Is he persistent in getting his way all of the time? If so, this is likely a power struggle…and not a hunger issue. Think about your child’s interactions with others. Do grandma and grandpa or the nanny spoil your child and always oblige him? If so, you may have a cute little “monster”…Continue

Are you constantly frustrated because it seems like your child doesn't listen to your instructions at all?

But it doesn't always have to be that way. Let me show you with this simple, easy technique.…Continue

While I'd rather have children reading or running outdoors, this may very well be the only time I will say this:
Video games are good for children.
Here's why: a recent study has shown that after playing only five games, children with high levels of anger had reduced anger scores.
Interesting, isn't it? To find out the rest of the story,…Continue

Sometimes, it's really really hard to be the parent, especially when your kids do something so crazy, stupid that you want to giggle but know you shouldn't. Take, for instance, the time when my son decided to reenact the lewd scene from "Brave" right in the middle of a baby shower we were…Continue

So, I have to say this weekend, which I was dreading, turned out to have some really surprising high points. Trinity and I took Tiara to Target and the market on Friday, two public places in one day, is really pushing it, and at both places, she actually walked, wasn’t in her wheelchair, and.....

I haven't sounded off on the whole Karen Klein issue yet. You know her, she's the 68 year old bus monitor in New York who was mercilessly hazed by a bunch of punk little assholes 4 seventh graders, while at work.
She's had one child commit suicide. She has one grandchild with Down's Syndrome. She's a bus monitor. Seriously? It sounds like she's been dealt quite a hand in life. Are we really raising shit head children who think it's funny to make old people cry? I know, I've been known…Continue
