Parents, you work hard for your child and family, and you do deserve to get out once in a while.  You do get to refresh with friends or revive yourself with a short vacation.  What is standing in your way?  There is rarely anything more stressful than giving your child to the hands of another [...]

If there is anything good about struggling with your child over eating healthy it’s the fact that every other parent you see at the grocery store is struggling with the same issue.  It unites us as parents and let’s us feel normal again, but it doesn’t take away the frustration of your child refusing to [...]

At one point in their child’s young life, a man and woman threw their hands up in the air and a parenting book with it.  They read every hot “how to raise your child” book on the market, but they still weren’t getting the results they wanted.  So many people were telling them so many [...]
