  • Top three things that parents should do but don’t, on the first week of school

    The First thing that I see a lot of parents don’t do during the first week of school, (and I would encourage you to do it), is to give yourself a little slack. I know you’re trying to get the best first day picture. If you didn’t take the first day picture, there are hundreds of other parents in the community who didn’t either. You’re not a bad parent, you just had a lot going on. You know, there’s an expectation that we all try to live up to on that first day or that first week of school, and I think a lot of times we just set ourselves up for failure. We set ourselves up for failure because we simply are trying to expect too much of ourselves, like ....

  • What to do when your kids won’t listen?

    The first thing you want to do, is you’ve got to recognize whether or not it’s a “can’t do” or “won’t do” kind of situation. In a can’t do situation, they’re not ready or capable of doing something. In a Won’t do situation, there’s some respect and some defiance issues. For instance, one of the things that my husband Titus and I have learned a lot with our son Beckett; with him being adopted and bringing him over from China, he had a huge language barrier. And just now after 14 months, he’s really understanding exactly what we’re saying and we can understand him for a good part of what he’s ....

    The Shopper’s Self-Defense Guide

    Holiday shopping can be a thrill. In a good way and even in a bad way. Adding a little self defense mentality can go a long way. Self Awareness
    You have society on your side. Potential criminals (for the most part) won’t just obnoxiously run up to you in front of a crowd and take your things. These criminals are looking for an opportune situation. As long as you are aware of your surroundings, you can prevent yourself from ever falling into one of these situations. Your own body is a part of your surroundings. It would be a foolish decision to count cash in public. This is something you should be aware of, and instead count your cash privately.
