A Fun Way for Parents to Check Kids Grades

Silly Parents, 
Technology isnt just for kids

We know it's a busy world being parent. We also know it's important for us to stay connected with our children's teachers. But how can we be in so many places, and keep track of so many things, at one time???

For me, with multiple children in multiple schools, I just can't make it to every orientation, open house or parent teacher night....

Having the same problem?

Well, now a days there is a solution for this. It's Power School! This is a super fun and easy way to get connected with your childrens teachers, see their grades and know how they are doing.


This Fun Friday is ALL about the PARENTS!

If you are like me, it gets tough visiting the district website, then finding the child's grade, then finding the teacher...just to write an email to them to check up on them..

And the school/district website does not post whether or not your child handed in their homework (or the grade they got on it).

NOW- in just ONE online place you can see each of your child's classes, attendance, homework (which has been handed in OR NOT) and get the teacher's email address ALL with the click of a button!

If your school system is running any type of online software, USE IT! Don't be afraid of personal information, breach of privacy, etc. You divulge more of that using a check at the grocery store and allow more people access to your accounts and private information when using a debit card to make purchases on AMAZON.

If you're children attend WE School District, contact your teacher for your child's school appointed Username and Password and use this link to begin an account.

If you are part of another school system, talk with the principal or teachers to see if there is online software being use, if not, push for it's usage in schools.

Technology is evolving every day, don't get left behind...and don't allow your schools to either! This is a fun way for you to ...Get CONNECTED TO YOUR CHILD'S EDUCATION AND HELP THEM SUCCEED...WITHOUT EVEN LEAVING YOUR COMPUTER! (Now, admit it, that does sound fun!)

Green Punch Buggy....!!!!

Green Punch Buggy...No Punch Back! As I was writing this blog post, my son came to me showing off his Lego creation. And don't you know I got hit at least five times since on my computer screen was displaying at least five different punch buggies, of five different colors thanks to Google Images. (Bad timing I'm thinking...) How can we possibly have world peace with these silly cars in the world!? ;) Don't the owners of these cute-but-obnoxious-cars understand that driving these things around town promotes violence!? ;) Anyhow.... The original purpose of this blog was to ask parents everywhere this question: Do you find yourself saying 'PUNCH BUGGY *BLANK-COLOR*! '  to yourself, even when the kids are not in the car??? I do! Isn't it funny how those games we used to play as a child are still around? I bet our parents say the same thing.... HAPPY FRIIIIIIDAAAAYYYY! P.S. I got hit at least ten more times, since as my son stood beside

Back to School Anxiety: Bullying

Download “School Boy Being Stressed” by David Castillo Dominici via I recently wrote about how to help your child if they’re struggling with going back to school because they were bullied. My biggest most important tip was to listen, because I honestly could not write a ‘How-to-make-them-not-afraid’ column. Frankly I thought that was absurd. Fear is sometimes real. Anxiety is sometimes truly there, and for a good reason. Our job as parents isn’t to try to make it go away, it’s to try to find out the true source of those worrisome feelings. If you’d like to read more, click here. And if you’re child is struggling to find excitement about the new school year, don’t deny it, just accept it and move forward gently.

Good Customer Service At Home

Over the years, my careers have mainly been customer service based. I started in a family business and then moved on up through the rungs from waitress, to hostess, to sales associate, manager and eventually the GM of a hotel. In all my years, my training taught me that you should always do your best to take your customer all the way to what they need, make them happy, and never leave them until they are done with you. I pride myself on my customer service abilities. Though the other day, I think I failed at customer service in my own home! I was getting ready to cut my daughter's hair and because of how long it had gotten (she's been growing it out for a year!) I felt this time it would be best  if instead of me spritzing it with water, she could wash and condition it real quick. She was fully clothed so I just suggested she run into the bathroom and wash her hair in the tub. She’s fourteen. I suppose I just assumed that she knew how to kneel over the tub and do it.
