Parents! We CAN change the world, starting with the way we're parenting our future. Up to this point in history, children have been seen as less than and parented in a way that uses power over a child. Most of us were parented in this way but there is a shift in thinking about the way we raise our kids. Parents don’t feel good about using shame, blame, criticism, punishments, and even rewards, to get their kids to listen. Parents are wanting a different way because they know from their own c ...

Unfortunately, this is a topic we can’t stop talking about. The online safety of our children is something that needs to be at the forefront of our parenting. It’s one of the hardest topics to face in parenting because there are so many apps, and new ones all the time. It’s like trying to hit a moving target. The world is so fortunate to have peopl…
 
The school system is not always going to be working FOR your child, in fact, as my guest shares, your child’s school might cut corners and not tell you.

She helps parents through s…
 
We are ALL a hot mess from time to time! There are days we just can’t even and I’m here to tell you that’s PERFECTLY OK! As parents we often struggle with “what is” and we fight against it, beat ourselves up, and say things should be different. What if instead, we could just accept that we just can’t even today? That today is a no makeup, stained s…
 
Gun violence has been heavy on everyone’s mind with the horrific massacre at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York and just ten days later, the shooting of innocent lives at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

If you are looking for a great grad gift, you’ll want to consider my guest’s book: “Career Toolkit, Essential Skills for Success That No One Taught You”. Why you ask? Because the way our kids are being taught to prepare for their future is NOT TEACHING THEM THE SKILLS THEY REALLY NEED! My guest, Mark Herschberg (he’s amazing - read his bio below!) …

Sleep is the most underrated aspect of wellness. As parents, especially moms, we lose so much sleep in pregnancy, when the babies are born and for many years as our kids grow up.

Fine…The other F-word! The other four-letter word and this one is keeping us from being happier, calmer and more connected to the people in our lives. When I say “I’m fine” I don’t mean fine at ALL! I just don’t want to say I’m not great, or talk about why I’m not great in that moment. I see “fine” as a bandaid word! It often covers up what’s reall…

I was so excited to talk to my guest, Dan Sheeks, and learn more about how he teaches teens to achieve early financial freedom.

If I think too much about it, it makes me w…
 
Ok mamas, we need to talk seriously about your happiness. If you are like me, becoming a mom kicked my a$$ and it took me years to recover from the massive changes I experienced.

When we first dream of becoming parents, we naturally think ahead to what we want for our kids in terms of their education, interests, sports, languages, and even what musical instrument they will play. And when we have that child, some of these become solidified in our minds and expectations. It’s natural to want the best for our children and to p…

I don’t think there is one parent who doesn’t worry about their child’s future when they are struggling in school.

Let’s face it, all we know about how to be in a relationship is what was modeled for us by our parents, or what we see in the media. We are never really taught how to be in a relationship.
