Reflections on Anti Bullying Awareness Month (Guest Post)

As a single mother of three children I thought I understood bullying.  I’ve read every  definition and policy on it from daycare to preschool to grade school now.  I’ve preached against it to my own children, I’ve tried to teach against it and redirect it on the playground and at play dates.  We watch movies like Mean Girls and celebrate Pink Shirt Day every February.  For someone who thought she had “got it” I’m feeling awfully...

The Dads Guide To PMS and Periods

So if you were like probably 99% of the boys in school that kind of glazed over and ignored health class when they talked about PMS and menstruation (period) (I was going to say 100%, but I can’t say that for sure!

How to be a good parent!

I was asked recently what makes me qualified to write a parent blog and what makes me a better parent than others?

She tended to to want to be closer and not as independent as the boys were at an early age and needed more from me. as she grew in to being a toddler of course me being a doting dad I did everything for her. Not long after turning 4 I realized that I had to start separating myself a bit...
