Mom Puts Son To Work On Street Corner

Mom Puts Son To Work On Street Corner

I am not a fan of the news in general but last night a story caught my ear.  A mother in Tampa, Rhonda Holder, was fed up with her son's failing grades and FCAT scores so she did something about it.  What she did was put her son on the street corner for 8 hours with a sign.  The sign reads:  "I did four questions on my FCAT and said I wasn't [...]

What To Do When Chores Are Not Getting Done

Chores don’t have to always be a war. However, the most efficient, well thought out family plan will have some challenges in the beginning. Children will never choose chores over playing the X-box or checking out their Faceback page but you can get them to do them without a fight. You have to make the commitment though and stick with [...]

Everyone Knows, Why Won’t Anyone Help?

Everyone Knows, Why Won’t Anyone Help?

Bullying is all over the news right now. Magazine covers profiling some kid somewhere that has suffered at the hands of bullies and heart wrenching stories of kids who have taken their own life. The reporters interview the family and friends and we find out that these kids weren't alone. We find out that people knew they were being bullied. [...]

Twenty Years Ago I Knew It All And Was Going To Be The Perfect Parent

Twenty Years Ago I Knew It All And Was Going To Be The Perfect Parent

Twenty years ago, I had parenting all figured out. That was, of course, before I actually had any kids. I spent years telling myself and my parents exactly what I would do and wouldn't do. I was going to be the best mommy on the planet and have the perfect family. I would do a much better job than my parents did. I mean how hard could it [...]

Parents in the News – Recently

Parents in the News – Recently

I have been following the news on three parents recently.  It will come as no surprise who the three parents are: A mom from St. Clair Shores, Michigan who drove her teenage son to a 7-11 convenience store to beat up a younger kid.  She not only drove him there, but once there she cheered him on and encouraged the beating.  The other [...]

Drafting a Parenting Plan

I have always thought parents should create a parenting plan first before they get involved with their divorce.  It prevents either parent from using the children as bargaining chips.  Many a judge would be thrilled to see a parenting plan filed with the divorce paperwork.  Contrary to belief, judges don’t really like making these life [...]

Lessen the Sibling Rivalry

Sibling rivalry is an age old problem. My goodness it dates back to biblical times so don't feel stressed if it is going on in your home and you can't stop it. There are some ways to better deal with it but understand that you nor I nor any parent will ever put an end to sibling rivalry altogether. When I say siblings I mean any children [...]

Bring Back Community Parenting

Bring Back Community Parenting

I have been thinking a lot about the mother in the store the other day and her response when people tried to speak to her about it.  She isn't alone.  There are a good majority of parents, if you commented on how maybe their child was just being bad and needed to be dealt with that would tear your head off.  This mind your own business because [...]
