The Kids' Voice ...

I am a co-chair on the newsletter committee at my children's school. The newsletter is called, same as my subject line, The Kids' Voice. I began a new section in the publication... "Our Kids' Voices." Here is an excerpt: "While listening to the nursery rhyme “Humpty Dumpty,” the teacher read, ‘All... Sign in to see full entry.

Something Worked!

My little girl had such a terrific day on Tuesday that she received an "Out of Sight" certificate for her behavior at preschool. I used some of your suggestions on how to discipline my 3-year-old Devyn. For the first time, Devyn (and my son) saw Mommy as the most serious and tough Mom around. I put...

At My Wit's End

I've learned nothing so far in raising my 3-year-old daughter. Rather, I've learned nothing about how to become a better mother, wife, or person. Don't get me wrong, I did not have children to learn any of these things, but I am the kind of woman who enjoys insights of ALL types. My red-haired,... Sign in to see full entry.

We Don't Use Words Like That

Devyn, my just-turned three years old daughter, likes to tell her family that they are stupid if she does not get her way. My husband and I continually tell her that we don't call people names, and we don't use words like that. We have punished her by not allowing her to have popsicles or ice cream...

P. P. Princess

My 2-year-old little Devyn girl is potty training and for the most part, she is faring well. Recently I decided to put real panties on her as part of a real test. Unfortunately, little Devyn leaked... she leaked all over her Princess underwear... the pair with Cinderella, Belle, and Ariel on the... Sign in to see full entry.

A Baby in Her Belly

My longtime friend of 30 years came to Maryland for a visit from her home in Colorado. I was so excited to see her that I talked and talked to my 4 and 2-year-old kids about her. You see, she is 4 months pregnant, 39 years old, and had always vowed NEVER to have children. She just couldn't imagine... Sign in to see full entry.

You'll Have to Go to The Dentist

One of my 2-year-old daughter's favorite books is called "Wilbur Goes to the Dentist." Wilbur is a walrus whose tusk hurts. When he eats shellfish, he says, "Ouch!" and complains to his mother that his tusk hurts. She tells him that he needs to go to the dentist. Wilbur says, "I don't want to go to...

The Write Stuff

It was another frantic Saturday with my kids and I attempting to get all our chores, shopping, cleaning, et cetera, completed so we could enjoy our day of rest on Sunday. My 4-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter were strapped into their respective car seats and we were almost ready for takeoff to... Sign in to see full entry.

What to do About Those Scary Monsters

Four-year-old Justin would not go to sleep in his bedroom. He would not go to sleep in Mommy's and Daddy's bed. He would not go to sleep on the couch. He would not go to sleep because he repeated that he was scared. "What are you scared of, honey?" I asked. "Monsters!" he answered. "Monsters!" I... Sign in to see full entry.

The Red Crayon in the Spaghetti Bowl

The instant my little family of four sat down for an Italian dinner at Squire's Inn restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland, the waitress came by our booth and said to me, "You must have a lot of patience." "Patience? Oh yes, it's a must," I said. Our 2-year-old daughter, Devyn, sat at the end of the... Sign in to see full entry.
