Latest post is called The Grocery Store Meltdown. It's a question I've addressed a lot lately. Feel free to agree or disagree with my assessment! What do moms do to deal with/prevent meldowns from children in a grocery store?

Naming a child is far from an easy process for most people. Granted, there are couples who have their children’s names picked out years before the double pink line appears on the stick. Usually these are the traditional folks who want to honor family members by carrying on their names. I think that’s a lovely idea but unfortunately I had names to choose from like Melba, Edgar and Lois. Sorry, I’m just not doing that to a kid.

This post is from "Sandra" who asks about the fine line between giving her children what they want without feeling like she always has to keep up with her neighbors. Please contribute if you think there is anything I left out.

The name of the game was perfection and the holy grail was a sparkling kitchen floor and a husband's shirt that was devoid of the feared "ring around the collar." Apparently women…Continue

Every so often we bark an order at a kid and moments later, regret it. Why do we regret it? Because it was said with no forethought of what a pain it would be to follow through. The alternative to following through is unbearable – parents transforming into white noise machines repeatedly saying annoying things like:
“I’m giving you ONE more chance”,…Continue
