Parents: If You're Looking For Balance...

Whether you're a SAHD or SAHM, or work in or outside of the home, we all sometimes need a bit of help sorting out our workload.

I'm a mom of three...
 I work and run my own business.
I cook, clean, do the shopping and the taxiing.
In my spare time (haha) I even attempt to keep a social life.
If you're like me, I'm always trying to get and maintain balance in my life-
though sometimes it does elude me.

Normally I do an okay job of identifying and handling my own issues; successfully solving my own areas of weakness. But last year, I just could not figure out what part of my life was out of balance! I just always felt so BURNT OUT! 

If you're in the same boat- and always in a vicious cycle you can't seem to get out of- please take this class with me! 

The facilitator is a good friend, colleague and coach of mine, who I trust and appreciate (insert little heart emoticon here). Andrea (pronounced AHndrea), is outstanding! She listens, she cares, and she helps you think in ways and areas you never thought possible. This class even includes brainstorming and sharing with other people in the group!

Andrea has helped me tremendously. In just a short amount of time, she was able to figure out which areas of my life were out of balance, taught me how to say "No" WITHOUT GUILT (IKR?) to those things that do not align with my immediate priorities, and then taught me how to relax and take time for me (if you know me -- you know this was impossible to do because in 40 years I couldn't relax)

I'm having my best year yet. 

 Saturday, August 30th! 
It's local
It's only ten bucks 
and it's under 2 hours long. 
Can't beat it...

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.

6 Ways to Support Teens and Mental Health (Column Related)

  Enjoying a trip to see family and exploring the outdoors. May was Mental Health Awareness Month. It’s over now, but it shouldn’t be. I’m not a medical professional or anything even close, but I am convinced that every person on the planet (no matter age, economic status, profession, race, or gender) is vulnerable to events that can alter their state of mind. If you’re not sure about this, just research the increase in the amount of people seeking psychological help due to the pandemic, then try getting an appointment with a therapist or counselor that doesn’t require weeks or months on a wait list. There are so many things damaging our mental health that we don’t even realize. Add underlying issues not yet detected and undiagnosed…it’s a bad situation made worse, and the need for support more urgent. Many teens are struggling with mental health issues right now and many of us don’t even know it. How could we? Not too many teens feel comfortable talking to adults about ‘their stuff’ a

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
