How To Teach Your Kids To Self-Motivate

Self-motivation is the holy grail of parenting. When you have successfully cultivated your child’s inner drive, you can sit back knowing that you’ve given him or her the one thing they will need to thrive in our fast-changing society. You’ve...Read More

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - I Have KIDS

    I’m Sorry, Ma’am. You Have KIDS.

    Sometimes, when I say that I have KIDS, the words come out of my mouth as if I am mentioning an acronym for an exotic chronic illness that I contracted on a hike through the Congo.  In truth, having children is a condition similar...Read More

    Are You Mom Enough?

    I have to chime in here with my opinion of the Time magazine cover.

    I am not going to comment on the article though, since I can’t access it online and because I have yet to see it on the newsstands.

    What I really want to discuss is not attachment parenting, which is what the Time article focuses on and which is only one way to raise a child.

    I don’t want to debate the breastfeeding vs. non-breastfeeding or the pros/cons of extended breastfeeding.

    I don’t even want to talk about the “shocking” cover image that was designed to be so and has clearly hit a nerve with a lot of people.

    What I want to focus on is the headline: “Are You Mom Enough?” READ MORE

    Mom! MOM? Watch This! Mom!

    My 5 year-old is currently in a “MOM, Watch this!” stage. I give her as much of my attention as I can but if I so much as blink while she’s showing me something, I’ll be in big trouble.

    Mom? MOOOOM? Watch this! Watch this, mom!

    Felicity Huffman's You Me and Charlie - Overcoming Shyness
    Shimi Kang

    Dealing With Shyness

    Shyness is completely normal in children and most of the time, nothing at all to worry about.

    In fact, a new study conducted by the University of Colorado and the University of Connecticut examined shyness. They found that shy children know the answer to questions just as often as outgoing kids, but they are just not as eager to state the answer out loud.

    However, if shyness interferes with what a child wants to do — like play a game, or interferes with what the child needs to do — such as give a presentation at school, parents can help kids overcome it. READ MORE
