Fun Friday: Fun Online Games for All Ages

Winter has arrived in our area! After a very wet fall, and so far a mild winter (think green Christmas), we're beginning to pay our dues. High winds, frigid temperatures and driving snow will leave us home bound this weekend (except for the sledding part).

If you are not someplace which resembles the arctic this weekend, but would still like to know what to do during inclement weather, keep reading!

I found this super fun website which has an entire library full of online games for all ages.
From sports trivia, word scrambles, reading pages of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, to History, Math and arcade games!

Why not pair up with your kids this weekend and play these games with together!!

The skill level is quite accurate and goes from levels 1-8 (grades actually) and is appropriately challenging for each.

Want some indoor winter fun (think snowball fights with para trooping penguins) try this. It's called Penguin Drop and it is a ton of fun!

Think you (or your kiddo) knows his football players? Try this and attempt to unscramble different team player names with just a hint.

Have a Wimpy Kid obsessed one at home? Click here.

Want your child to brush up on his math, but don't want to pull  out the flashcards? Try dot-to-dot counting backwards by fives!

If you're family is stuck indoors and needs a little pick me up, visit FUNBRAIN.COM!

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
