Limerick-Off Monday – Rhyme Word: PLANE, PLAIN, COMPLAIN, Or EXPLAIN at the end of any one line

It’s Limerick-Off time, once again. And that means I write a limerick, and you write your own, using the same rhyme word. Then you post your limerick(s) as a comment to this post and, if you’re a Facebook user, on Facebook too. I hope you’ll join me in writing limericks using PLANE, PLAIN, COMPLAIN, or EXPLAIN at the end of any one line. (Homonyms or homophones are fine.) The best submission will be crowned Limerick-Off Award Winner. (Here’s last week’s Limerick-Off Award Winner.) Additionally,...

Someday

It never fails. Monday through Friday the kids are impossible to wake up in the morning. The weekends? They’re up – fresh like daisies – by 6:30AM! During the week I’m usually revisiting bedrooms 2, 3 and 4 times – trying to get little butts out of bed and out the door on time. My 3 big guys (in grades 6, 7, and 8) have to be at the bus stop at 6:55AM. I usually start waking them up at 6:15AM – and it’s a win in my book if they’re all down by 6:40AM. That gives them 15 minutes to eat something,...

7 really smart decluttering habits to start now, so you don’t have to KonMari your house later

After reading Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, I immediately started purging my closets and folding my clothes differently. I’ve also binged on her new Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo and am currently in the process of piling all of my books in one room to sort through them. (Although, I admit I did […]

Unsealed court documents reveal that Facebook knew kids were being tricked into spending thousands of dollars on their parents' credit cards

In 2012, Facebook settled a class-action suit with parents who claimed that their kids were being tricked into spending real money on game items, thinking they were spending virtual in-game currency; the parents said that Facebook had structured its system to allow kids to use their parents' credit cards without the parents' intervention, unlike competitors like Google and Apple, who required password re-entries when a card was re-charged for in-game purchases. When the case was settled, th...

Bright But Different: How to Best Help Your Child with Learning Differences to Succeed

All children are smart in their own way. Some children, however, have individual learning styles that don’t allow them to succeed with traditional learning methods. These children are not disabled. They’re quite capable of learning everything their peers learn. They just learn in a different way. But children with learning differences are often robbed of their confidence and joy. It can be tremendously difficult for parents to accept that their child may have a learning challenge that int...

Are screens really destroying young people’s brains?

Leading pediatricians say the assumption that screen time is behind problems is not really supported by research. The danger has more to do with a screen being a gateway for unwanted intrusions into a child's life. While recommendations are difficult based on the limited amount of research that has been done, the report offers a few. None It's impossible to be a perfect parent, however hard you try.

Hemangioma Birthmark on your Child

Hemangioma was a word I didn’t know well at all before July 9, 2013. Actually – I’m going to be honest with you – I didn’t even know how to say it properly! My beautiful Victoria was born with a hemangioma on the left side of her forehead.  I knew immediately that there was a pinkish/red mark there, but the nurse and doctor told me it might just be a bruise from birth and to wait a few days and see. Victoria was born via c-section and right after birth, as much as I was out of it from the medic...
