Parents: what’s your goal?

The question, “What’s your goal?” was repeated many times in our household.  We asked our kids that question and we also asked each other.  “My math teacher is a perfectionist and she makes me crazy.  Why do I have to put the decimal point right on the line?” “What’s your goal?” “To learn this math stuff and…

Homework 101

Homework issues can arise at any grade level. Here are some ways Mom and Dad can help.

“Hug-a-tunity!”

Ever have those days as a parent when you are too busy at the moment to things going on around you…perhaps your child who may just be needing a moment of your time?  Where you realized it later that words weren’t enough, but sadly, you were oblivious at the time. Ouch!  You too, huh? Let’s call these “hug-a…

Be strong in the Lord and pray…for your children

Prayer…that is what we’ve been doing for our three daughters, but more specifically our middle daughter Rianna!  This was their first year in public school after me homeschooling them for 8 yrs.  Nights leading up to school starting she would ask to pray together.  First, we prayed for the change as a whole and…

Tips for finding peace as a perfectionist loving momma

From my earliest days, I knew I wanted to be a mom. I also knew I wanted to take Katie Couric’s spot on The Today Show – hasn’t happened. Wanted to take Sandra Day O’Connor’s spot on the Supreme Court – also seems highly unlikely. And wanted to be the youngest state senator in Nebraska history – my college friend did that…

I love you Son, and I’m praying for you.                                      -John Clutter     Words delivered me by my dad every time we parted ways.   Though dad is home in Heaven, his words and who he was, remain very real and present to me.  When my dad left, it became clear…

Father’s Day… is Dad really happy??

I’m in the “un-happiest” season of my life. That’s what books, articles, marriage counselors, psychologists and others all tend to say. Research shows that as a young parent with young kids, I’m at the bottom of the bell curve of happiness. This news obviously isn’t great, and yet in one…

Why your ex-husband matters

The headlights were shining on the bare garage wall in front of us. When my mom, brother, and I left for the weekend- that same wall was covered with dark brown pegboard, holding neatly arranged hooks that my dad used to hold his tools.  Now they were all gone- and instantly I knew he was gone, too.  While I don’t remember much of my…

My kids hate school. What should I do?

One evening last week, just before bedtime these three words came from my oldest son, “I hate school.” He’s almost finished with 2nd grade. Part of me had known it was only a matter of time until my kids started to feel this way, but the words hadn’t been said until that night. My two sons really are excelling…
