My most stressed out time as a parent is ahead of me

There are things that as a parent you can't prepare for. I like lists, so here is just a few of them:The amount of time you will spend talking about your child's bowel movementsThe way you will react the first time your child has a public meltdown The random things your child learns at school from their friends and then parrots back to you at home(It's that last one that makes me realize why…See More

Please don't yawn in front of me

Full disclosure: I just yawned while typing that title. Here's the thing: I am very susceptible to yawning. If I see someone yawn in front of me, I am going to yawn back at them. And when I do, I really hope that they are not also susceptible to yawning, otherwise we have entered a very dangerous yawning loop from which no woman can escape.I said "woman" in the paragraph above, because…See More

"Good thinking Lauren. I too feel that smart parents should monitor their kids activities before it is too late. Young ones can easily misuse the the freedom and privacy afforded by mobile phones and other devices "

Practice doesn't make new

There are a lot of things we practice in our household (like politeness and shoe tying), because - after all - practice makes perfect. That is not a phrase my son likes to hear. He (like most children) gets frustrated when he is unable to master something on the first try. We've all been there.But this…See More

Depression is a social desease

When our most recent cat was still alive, I noticed that she would come and sit with me whenever I felt sad. I don't know how she knew that about me, but if I started to feel blue, she would hop up next to me (she was never a lap cat) and purr to let me know that I wasn't alone in the world and she had my back.…

Raising a kind child

Posted on February 8, 2016 at 6:22am 0 Comments

Whenever my son doesn't get his way, he declares that my husband and I are being mean to him. Of course he does. In his world "mean" is the best word he has to describe the situation. It is horribly mean of us to ask him to follow the household rules, or for us to squash his fun by taking him on errands, or for us to encourage him to finish his morning tasks so we can get to school on time.…

Yes!  I totally agree that moods can be contagious!  Thankfully, it's been a while since I've had any kind of depression.  That doesn't mean I don't have my days when things overwhelm me and everybody around me can tell!  I've been trying to be conscious to not let things get to me so that the whole house doesn't end up anxious.

Hi Lauren! Thanks for checking me out :-) I'm taking notes from your Bedtime for Children post. My 8 year old suffers from insomnia :-( Hopefully with your tips I can get him to sleep sooner.
