Top 10 Family Night Activities

Top 10 Family Night Activities.jpg

I overheard my son talking to a friend the other day about our family game nights. The other kid asked, "What's that?" I told my son later I had overheard the conversation, and I really liked his patient response to his friend who really didn't understand the concept of a family getting together to enjoy each other's time.

The holidays can be the most stressful time of the year, and unfortunately a time that no one will admit to being this way because they're also supposed to be the best time of the year for most. Not many people will admit they're struggling at this time of year but if you are spending your first Christmas holidays as a singleton it can be hard to know how to work things out.

Peer Pressure Impacts Parents Too

marye2009-150x150.jpg

We all warn our kids about peer pressure. Sadly, we parents don't always take our own advice to heart. Somewhere inside every parent is a 16-year-old who wants her friends to think she has it all together. If you have a teen that pulls good grades, excels in sports and goes on mission trips to third world countries during spring break, you have done well. If you have a teen that gets a lip piercing, sings for a grunge band and spends as little time as possible at school, you have, well, obviously created a flawed human being.

Why You Shouldn't Tell Your Children to Make Good Choices

book-large-oct1.png

You've heard it over and over. If you're like me, you've probably even found yourself saying it from time to time. It's a refrain that just about any children living today have heard from their parents: "Make good choices!" It's usually accompanied by a smile or assertive nod as the children rush out the door to catch the school bus or participate in any activity that will not involve the parents' supervision.

5 Ways to Teach Your Children to Love the Outdoors

iStock_000011742105_Small.jpg

In an increasingly technological world, children spend more time glued to computers, video games and social media. There's a growing disconnect between children and the natural world, and it continues to increase. Fond memories of building forts in the woods, swimming in lakes, and star gazing on the grass have been replaced by florescent-lit classrooms and glaring screens of computers. It's important that we teach children to appreciate and interact with nature and the outdoors, especially while they are still young. Free-play outdoors will benefit their health and will peak their creativity and curiosity about the natural world they live in, an interest that could grow into an attitude of life-long learning that will benefit them for many years. Playing outdoors is also a great way to teach children how to relieve stress and stay active. Here are some ideas on how to teach your children to love the outdoors.

5 Goodies Kids Should Avoid to Maintain a Healthy Set of Teeth

Parents want nothing less than the best for their kids. They do not want their kids to make the same mistakes that they did when they were younger. Parents get monstrous when another kid in school hits their baby. They curse the first boy that broke their little girl's heart. The list goes on, and that list includes having healthy, if not perfect set of teeth. Hence, parents resort to different tactics for how to make their five-year-olds brush their teeth before bedtime, to avoid eating candies, and to find trips to the dentist enjoyable-- the last one being the hardest among kids of all ages or people of all generations.

AHYad_1-11.jpg

The year was 2002. I had just gotten married, spent 2 weeks in Hawaii and moved into a new home with my fabulous husband. But there was something not quite right. For the past year and a half, I had these nagging pains in my gut, headaches, fatigue and worst of all, seemingly spontaneous episodes of diarrhea, cha cha cha. What was going on? I chalked it up to stress. Planning a wedding, moving and becoming Mrs. Steven Rittenberg was enough to do that, right?
