Parenting

Instilling a love of reading

Most parents see the benefit in enjoying a good book and want to instill the love of reading in their kids.  So what can a parent do to encourage the love of reading? The answer may sound very old fashioned, but it is also very effective. Introduce your child to the local library and help him navigate that wonderful resource. Find books…

The ultimate parental dilemma

I stumbled across this article a couple days ago and since then have waffled back and forth on that parental dilemma I think we all wrestle with so much: the struggle of protecting your kids versus personal space/trust. My mom sometimes gripes what a pain it is to have to deal with car seats for my kids now, “back when we were kids we didn…

Proactive Christmas parenting

Christmas parties are right around the corner.  If your family is like ours, you won’t be attending just one.  It’s usually  – my side of the family, your side of the family, church programs, church friends, and maybe even a family office party!  All the fun will continue for days and will typically involved long hours and an…

Clean up in aisle 5!

Do you remember those days when your little ones were a handful in the store?  Even if there was one of you and one of them, that was too much some days!  Maybe you’re in that phase now where you have little ones that love to keep busy while mom is figuring out which bread to buy!  And for a child, it’s not that hard to find…

Get set to soar

Kites fly best when you let out the string slowly. Making sure you have lots of space and patience, it may pull and take a few dips, but the more you do it, the more skilled you become.  Once in a while they crash, and you have to pick up and begin again. Eventually, though, your kite can really soar as you coax it higher and gradually unwind…

Mom always liked you best

The statement, “Mom always liked you best,” was often repeated years ago by Tommy Smothers in the comedy act he and his brother created.  Unfortunately, that statement is not always funny.  It may be, or appear to be, true.  Several things factor into the challenge parents have to be impartial. Sometimes the personality of the…

Ahh, parenting…the beautiful letdown

As moms, we have a lot on our plate running a household!  Just look at the start of the day.  You make sure the kids get up in the morning and ready for school.  You ask “Are you all ready to walk out the door?” and of course they say “Yes” which really means I still have to brush my teeth, do my hair, and study…

3 lessons my garden taught me about parenting

We have a garden in our back yard. Things grow very well in it. Unfortunately, not food. The strawberries we produced were eaten by rabbits before we got to them. Most of our rhubarb went unharvested. The only things that thrived were dandelions, and some nettle. I’m sowing strawberries, but I’m reaping weeds. It isn’t a matter of…
