“No” is Okay for Parents to Say!

How to Handle and Prevent the Backlash from, “No”

Yup, we’ve all seen it, kids who overreact to when they are told, “No” by their parents. Call it what you like but I have seen the following behaviors in response to this simple two letter word we are calling, “No”

Over-Tired Kids: YIKES!

How to Handle Your Overtired School-Aged Child

It’s easy to tell when babies and toddlers are tired. They get fussy, yawn, and rub their eyes a lot. But as your kid gets bigger and goes off to school with her backpack and lunch box every day, it might be less obvious that she’s overtired.

So how do you know if your elementary-age child is overtired and in need of more sleep? For starters, if you have to wake her up every day, then she needs more sleep, plain and simple.

Another way to tell is if she starts reverting back Continue reading “Over-Tired Kids: YIKES!” »
