Goals? What goals?

It’s a New Year! For many of us, that means making resolutions or setting goals, starting anew, and trying our hardest to better ourselves. But what about our children? What do they learn from this and should we make them a part of all this? Well, the research shows that we should include them, and …

Gratitude is an attitude

So you’ve enjoyed some time with family, you’ve had good food and fun times, and hopefully had a nice break from work and routine. Maybe you even took a moment on Thanksgiving Day to think about all the things you’re thankful for. That’s great, but what about now? What happens now that the holiday …

Will you make the grade?

When we talk about homework and how to deal with it and all the stress that can come along with it, I think this becomes an important question. Nothing sends a parent straight back into their own past like trying to help their child with their homework. Even realizing this fact and admitting that we…

How can you bear this?

Sometimes as parents, we get angry. Furious even. Sometimes we get sad. Heartbroken even. Our child comes home from school and tells us something about their day that makes us want to take action right away. Surely this can’t be true! How did this happen? I can’t believe this! Well, I’m not going to…

Who's in charge here anyway?

That’s a question that often runs through my head when I hear conversations between parents and children. No, I’m not spying on you, I promise. But I see a huge amount of parent interactions on any given day—in my classroom, in the hallways, at car line, even at the grocery store or local restaurant…

Why teachers deserve a break!

First off, please don’t take my title personally. Everyone needs a break, not just teachers, of course. And some people have jobs that are much harder than mine, I have no doubt of that. But being a Kindergarten teacher, I like to talk about what I know. So here goes…

Teaching is hard. Don’t tell me …

Who will your child be?

If you’re a parent, I’m sure you’ve heard of the theories on how birth order affects your child’s personality. Firstborns have a reputation for being more responsible, middle children are supposedly starving for attention, and the youngest are said to be more rebellious (and get away with it). But …

Just do it!

Just put it down. Or better yet, turn it off completely. Don’t pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about. Don’t stop reading and go back to scrolling through Facebook. I’m pretty sure that if you’re a parent, you need to hear this. I did too. We all need to take a good hard look at ourselves, …

Where is the magic?

When your help actually hurts

We all want what’s best for our children, right? Well, what if I told you that what you think is best for your child might just not be the best? What if you learned that instead of helping your child, like you thought you were, you were actually hindering their progress? Don’t worry, it’s an honest …
