5 Ways to Help Improve Toddler Language Development

Hello, beautiful people out there! I know it has been a while since I've posted a blog but I've been so busy with working and travels, but now I am back! I have received questions about how my two-year-old talks so well. My daughter turned two this past October and she had been counting to 10, singing her ABC's, repeating after people, and singing songs well before her second birthday. In fact, people would often ask if she was two when she was only one year old. ...more

Barbie's Not the Devil (But I Still Don't Like Her)

Barbie's Not the Devil (But I Still Don't Like Her) How can I teach my kids to be kind to each other and to themselves? How can I teach them to be confident, inquisitive, happy children? Children that will gradually grow into young adults and then, unbelievably, adults. As far as body image and beauty are concerned, I tend to focus on my daughter; I understand a woman's point of view and all that it covers....more

To the Boy Who Said My Daughter Isn't Pretty Enough to Play With

I knew immediately when I picked Maddy up from school yesterday that something was wrong. The happy-go-lucky, funny and vibrant little girl that normally greets me at the end of the day was replaced by a more reserved, shy and quiet statue.

I know adulting is hard, but most of us are able to raise kids AND enjoy life. Crazy. I know.

Stop me if you’ve heard this before.There was a woman who gave birth to children.And she raised them, had her own identity and her own life, and lived a very happy life with very happy kids.Shocking. I know.Goodness gracious, it’s like that woman never existed according to some of the headlines these days!             “Something you’ll never need again: nice clothes. Because, let’s face it, you will never go out again.-Some Parenting Blog”...more

Santa Claus

When you think of Santa Claus, what comes first to mind? A jolly elf who spreads good cheer around the world or a sneaky home invader who spies on children? For me, it is a combination of both. I’m torn on this iconic character. Like religion and politics, the topic of Santa can be divisive among people, especially young parents. He is sacred and almost holy. Don’t dare talk ill of him.
