Positive Parenting Tip Of The Day...

Tip: Rather than always getting upset at your child(ren). Look at the more positive side of things, than the negative side of things...  The Number #1 thing is : Talk to your child(ren) not at them... Don't slip into this bad habit.
This one word alone is something that I struggle with still to this day. Which I have noticed over the years, that I'm not alone: (Don't)
  •  Don't do that! 
  •  Don't forget to make your bed. 
  •  Don't forget to clean your room. 
  •  Don't Run. Walk! 
  •  Don't use that tone with me!

When you use a positive word(s). You will be pleasantly surprise of the out come. 
Positive word(s): (Please), (Thank You), (Appreciate) just to name a few.
  •  Please don't do that. 
  •  Please make your bed. 
  •  Please clean your room. 
  •  I would really appreciate. If you would make the right choice, and not run. But walk. 
  •  Let me ask you. Are you making the right choice by using that tone with me?

Now keep in mind; once you have decided that you are going to make this change. You can't just do this once or twice. You need to stay consistent , meaning  it will be a work in progress. Don't give up...

Sibling Rivalry...

Do you have sibling rivalry going on in your daily lives between your children? Why can’t they just get along? Does it seem that they are jealous, or trying to compete for your attention?

Sibling Rivalry happens in some cases right after the second child is born, and it very well might continue throughout their childhood. Don’t be alarmed, you can work through this.

Your children are trying to find his or her own voice, and if they feel their voice is not being heard; because of the other sibling; then it can turn into a rivalry.

Parents try to give each child your undivided attention: Try to give your child their own special day, or their own special time. Your child wants to share with you their own special talents and success that they have done.

Just remember you don’t ever want to label them; don’t play favorites. You love them both equally, you need to always keep in mind that they need to know how much you do.

What’s lurking around the young ones?

How clean is your kitchen? Ask yourself that question.

When prepping for any meal always keep all your foods separated for avoiding cross contamination of bacteria’s. Wash your hands and keep your countertops sanitized; and always cook at the proper temperatures.

Here is a list of bacteria’s that can be lurking in your kitchen; if your kitchen is not sanitized properly:


Unpasteurized juice and cider

Lettuce and sprouts

Raw milk cheese

Undercooked hamburger


Egg and Chicken



Fresh Produce


Leafy Vegetables Contaminated w/Manure

Raw Milk

Raw Meat

Soft Cheese

Deli Meats


Hot Dogs

Keep your family safe from bacteria. Don’t let the bacteria’s live and spread on your surfaces in your kitchen. These kinds of bacteria’s can become very hazardous to your families health.

Snacks, Snacks, and More Snacks...

Does your child(ren) keep coming to you, telling you they want more to eat? Even though you just got done cleaning up from making breakfast, lunch, or dinner? This is called, “grazing” in other words snacks, snacks, and more snacks. Try to create a healthy grazing/snack pattern throughout their day. Try to give your child(ren) snacks that are high in protein and low in sugar; this will help to stretch out their energy. The reason you should stay away from foods and drinks that contain a high amount of sugar in them; is because your child(ren) can get a boost from the sugar of course meaning a (sugar high), and then next thing you know they crash...

Example: Snack Foods That Have Protein

Peanut Butter

Just to name a few...

Be creative, before preparing the snacks. Get some cute little cookie cutters. Make your snacks into cute little kid friendly shapes; have your child(ren) depending on how old they are become mommies little helper, and have them help you prepare the snacks; “get them involved.” After all is prepared, make a picnic on the floor or in your own backyard

Happy Snacking...

Family Movie Night...

Parents come together as a family and make it a movie night. What I mean by movie night; I don’t mean take your children out to the movies once a week, that can become very pricey very quickly. Make it a movie night at home, make that be your special time to spend with your children. Pick out a movie that everyone will enjoy from your local movie rental store what ever is easiest for you. It’s really nice when you do this once a week , and try to make it the same time each week. Put a blanket down on the floor right in front of the TV. Have the children help you pop some popcorn and get some drinks, and don’t forget to silence your cellphones before the movie starts. This is a budget friendly thing that you can do as a family.

One thing is for sure your children will always remember family movie night. You want your children to remember those special times that they spent with their parents. So make it special and fun for the whole family.
