Teaching Your Child About Respect
02/06/2019

> The video above, from our friends at Sesame Street, does a great job explaining the concept of respect. In the video, you see children, adults, pigs, chickens and more. Everyone’s a little bit different – just like in real life. That’s okay, though, so long as you take time…

To Respectfully Disagree
09/25/2012

Confession time: I’m a pusher.  When the opportunity presents itself, I share my political views with my kids.  I am all for their independent thinking and building their own opinions and values of the world.  But something in me cannot just leave it up to chance.  What if Chelsea Clinton…

Battling Stress
09/07/2012

As a first time parent—side note, at what point I stop referring to myself as that I’m not clear, but I digress—I am constantly questioning, analyzing and evaluating my actions and my daughter’s behavior in some attempt to demystify this thing called parenting. Working for an educational childcare company is…

The summer is over and it's back to school again. Is the opening song from Grease 2 playing in anyone else's head? No? Okay, just me. With a new school year comes homework. I'm determined not to end up in the fetal position as I did last year after the…

A Parenting Lesson from All Dogs Go to Heaven
08/01/2012

I recently introduced the idea of letting my daughter watch a movie on the iPad during the daily 30-minute commute to work and child care (no judgment, please).

Statistics Class
07/27/2012

In going through some consumer research for my job in marketing, I recently read a new statistic that said moms check Facebook 4.7 every day—that is considerably more than any other demographic.  I was amazed at the frequency, I mean, who has less time than a mom?  How does she…

Bringing Baby to Work?
07/20/2012

Last week there was an emergency at day care and I had to pick up my daughter unexpectedly. With it being only 11:00 a.m. I still had a ton of work to do, and honestly, felt guilty about heading out so early in the day. Knowing I’d be taking a…

Filtering for your Children

It happens when we least expect it. You’ve got the TV on in the background while you play Legos with your seven year old and a program begins on the 9/11 Memorial, and he asks, “What’s 9/11?” Your response? “Uhhh…well…it stands for September 11th… and umm, a few years before…

I’m a Mom and I Know It
07/12/2012

Every once in a while I find myself caught in a true parental moment and realize I’m part of the club. Sometimes it’s an unavoidable situation, such as being thrown up on in the middle of the night by a sick child, or maybe it’s a completely impetuous act. But…
