Helicopter Mums



Helicopter Mums

By Tomi Adeyemo





Mothers naturally tend to have a protective streak in them, wanting to protect their children from any foreseen-and extremely feared harm. Some mothers forcefully shelter their children in order to keep them 'close' to home and only succeed in pushing them away, because the first chance they get to flap their wings, the rush of freedom usually takes them as…

Why Giving Kids An Allowance Isn't A Good Idea





Why Giving Kids An Allowance Isn't A Good Idea

By Nancy O'Neill





Giving kids an allowance thinking it will teach them about earning money, saving, or spending wisely isn't the best way to instill good financial values. In fact, giving an allowance can often do more harm than good. There are much better ways to teach the value of money.

Webster online defines an "allowance"…

Got Angry Kids? Want Some Answers?

Got Angry Kids? Want Some Answers?

By Yvonne Sinclair





Everyone gets angry sometimes. Parents usually want their children to be happy. When the children are angry or sad, sometimes parents feel they have failed in parenting. This is not so! Your job, as a parent,

is not to provide a life of glee for the child without bumps or

problems. Your job, as a parent, is to prepare your child…

It's All About the Rules!

It's All About the Rules!

By Humaira Zakir





Ever thought about rules and their impact on our lives? If there are no rules, our lives will become ever so chaotic and unpredictable. We would feel unsafe, insecure and would struggle to organise ourselves. Rules keep us under check, tell us how to behave and respond in different settings with different people and generally keeps us under…

Keep Your Kids Away From Booze

Keep Your Kids Away From Booze

By Mike R Miller



As a counselor for both in class and online alcohol awareness classes I often discuss the efforts of parents to keep booze out of their children's lives. This can be quite an animated conversation as often I have minors in class taking a minor in possession class (MIP class).

What Teenagers Need - Positive Teaching and Parenting

What Teenagers Need - Positive Teaching and Parenting

By Philip S Baker





As a high school teacher for the last few decades, I found that the Bible reference that says, "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs that it may benefit those who listen," was totally relevant with regard to what teenagers need.

Having a…

Divorce to Dad, With the Loss of a Family Comes the Appreciation for What I Had

Divorce to Dad, With the Loss of a Family Comes the Appreciation for What I Had

By R. Cabral





One observation I have made over the years is that when you are an extremely self-addicted person, you really never recognize the behavior while it is happening. Instead it is when you are at a place of brokenness that the clarity of who you are and how you have lived your life comes to light. That is what happened to me.

During my marriage, I was focused entirely on…

My Forever Love - A Father's Day Tribute

My Forever Love - A Father's Day Tribute

By Andrea Sharp





"Bye dad." "I love you!" "We'll see you soon." I said softly as we settled him in the front seat of our car. My husband Matt was taking dad (my father-in-law) back to his home in Fresno.

They drove out of the driveway and down the road. I breathed a long sigh of relief. We had brought dad home for 3 days, back to where he'd lived for the past 8 years. Readjusting back to our home proved much more…

Positive Ways To Make Defiant Children Listen to You

Positive Ways To Make Defiant Children Listen to You

By Murphy Isaac





In today's parenting, you don't need to teach a child to be defiant. Many studies had been conducted and psychologists found out that misbehave children feel the need to be in control.

As a parent, you may ask yourself is this too much for you to handle? It is clearly a power struggle of a different kind. Stress is a constant contributing factor to their actions and both sensitive and defiant…

From Chaos To Calm : 5 Simple Steps to Balance for Working Mums

Step One – Stop Trying to Achieve “Perfect” Balance

The first step about achieving a balanced life is this: Give up trying to achieve perfect balance in your life – ‘cos it ain’t ever gonna happen! Yes, that’s right; the Coach who specialises in Work Life Balance told you that perfect balance is impossible! What’s that I hear you say? “Surely, you can’t be telling me to just give up on ever achieving balance?” ‘Fraid so, sister! There is no such thing as being in perfect balance. It’s…

Dad Is Gone, But I Still Have Feelings

Dad Is Gone, But I Still Have Feelings

By Lyndsay Katauskas





This article addresses writing a feeling letter to your father who has passed away in response to my last article about getting through Father's Day after Loss. Losing a parent whether it is due to natural or extenuating circumstances is painless, right? Wrong. When we lose a part of ourselves, we not only lose the parent who brought us into the world, we also lose history and memories that we can never get…

How to Bring Out the BEST Version of You As a Mother

By Sigrid Stover Kjeldsen





Expectation is a big, powerful force.

 

It is actually a force that pulls us forward into life. Our expectations are made up of thoughts that have been entertained frequently, or beliefs that you almost take for granted - all the building blocks that create YOUR life experience.

 

Most of us are not conscious of our expectations. Suffice to say, we are therefore…
