Avoid comparing your child to others because children are unique.. They are individuals and no two children are alike... They have their own interests and needs, passions and talents... Kenzie & Nasya, I am so proud of you and love you both so much ❤️❤️❤️😘😘😘

Parent hacks 101 😂
So we are all out of cotton balls for some reason. Anyways needed the cotton ball so the antibiotic ear drops wouldnt come out. I wasn't about to go out to buy a bag of cotton balls so next best thing was a tampon. Hey they're sterile so bonus lol. I obviously cut the tampon up but first I did this and he was so confused 😂 I swear I had him thinking he had to have the tampon in his ear like this lmao I'm raising my little brother and providing that parent support and love but I also have to keep the big sister fun in too 🤣😂 #parenthacks #parentinglife #raisingkids #raisingteens #raisingteenagers #babybrotherlove #babybrother #fostermom #love #latinos #tampon #bigsisterlove #pranks #raisingsiblings #homeremedies #lol

| Most teens would rather hang out all night with their friends.
But HER?!!!! 🤔
She would much rather spend every God given minute with her family and sing on the karaoke machine.
That’s our Liyah!
So helpful and respectful, so patient, so kind.
Dear Liyah, you are the BEST!
If Walt’s crew only knew... the next Disney Princess they crown
would have to be you! 👑 @theliyahsimone

Mommin teenagers ain’t easy... my emotions go all over the damn place! I get so annoyed and frustrated then I’m hurt or worried, then I’m crying and confused... I’m not perfect but I am walking a life of an example that I want set for their future. The truth is they make me crazy, and even more truth is- they know it! But these are my children, and I’m committed to all of us surviving and learning from these years! But for real... I can’t wait, teenagers make me cray!!!! 💛but they’re just so cute💛

The values in our children starts with us.

For our children to know compassion, they must be shown compassion.

For our children to know what respect is and how to respect themselves and others, they must be shown respect .

For our children to know about any values that we want them to know about and practice, we must show those exact values to them on a CONSISTENT basis.
If they are only shown to them every now and again, they will treat them as unimportant and they won't be part of their everyday lives.

To parent today's children effectively in today's world, our level of INTENTIONALITY has got to step up beyond our normal levels.
Their values are in your hands.

Mommy-daughter time is so essential for me when raising a teen and here's why? Each time spent with her is an opportunity to demonstrate characteristics she can emulate.
In a era of over sexuality on social media platforms her first impression of ideal femininity is from time spent with me versus what she sees elsewhere.

This BBC report demonstrates just how homosexuality is being normalised in British schools and in some cases encouraged as a way of life children should maybe give a try.
.
Where does one draw the line? Can we be both respectful of others' choices yet consider this a red line not to be crossed when it comes to educating our children?

Thursday is a big day for myself and my team! It’s the day we get compensated for the work that we do in helping people on their weight loss journey’s and it’s also the day my coaches advance in rank!
Today is one of my biggest paychecks to date because
I’m preparing myself and my challengers, both new and old, to start this brand new 6 week “Step” workout! Everyone is pumped!
It’s 20 minutes a day, 6 days a week for 6 weeks!
And who doesn’t love the step!
I had an opportunity to preview the program before it officially starts in January and I just know that it’s going to transform lives!
20 minutes goes by so quickly and I’m off to start my day!
I’m reserving spots for my next group!
Are you ready to step it up?

When I chose my decor for the living room, I knew these signs needed to be in my house. Not because they described me but because they are goals I wanted to strive for.
.
We always here about type A personality but have you ever considered what the opposite is? .
People with Type B personality traits are relaxed, less stressed, flexible, emotional and expressive, and have a laid-back attitude.
.
The only way to reach that goal is to work for it. For me I need daily reminders to keep my Type A traits from taking over. .
Social media gives us the illusion that everyone’s life is happy, fun, perfect and stress-free but I call BS on that. .
This room looks picture perfect but it sees its share of arguments, chaos and preoccupation with cell phones instead of people. Expectations, stress, worry and exhaustion try to worm their way into our family culture and erode the goals we set. .
These words aren’t just on a wall to look pretty. They are the words written on my heart. The ones I aspire to have as the daily norm. .
What words would you choose to have as your goals? .

I hear you! I have four tweens/teens - its tough! I often wish for the toddler years again and the simplicity they brought. The thing that keeps me going, is knowing that actually - gentle is the ONLY way that works. You can yell, punish and bribe all you like, but try making a child who is bigger than you stay in their room, or on a step, or motivate them with stars and stickers. It just doesn't work. No matter what the problem is, the answer is always connection, communication and containment; asking WHY are they doing this, reconnecting and collaboratively solving problems. The big issue is it takes a LOT of you to do this - at a time when you're getting older and don't feel like you have the energy! .
.
The answer is actually about your mindset and how you take care of yourself. Because working collaboratively with kids who are bigger than you, yet have brains more like toddlers than adults really takes it out of you! You can't expect your kids to ask less of you (they ask more as they get older - or as the saying goes "little kids, little problems. Big kids, big problems"), so you are left with making more space for them by taking care of yourself. This means putting boundaries in place, meeting your own needs and feelings and finding an outlet to 'discharge'. Self-care when you have babies and toddlers is important. Self-care when you have tweens and teens is imperative.
.
Resetting expectations of your kids is important too, they may be able to quote the periodic table to you, but their emotional regulation skills and impulse control is still akin to that of a preschooler. Don't expect too much. Don't set too many boundaries, but enforce those you set well. Check out my Gentle Discipline Book for more. Try to have fun with them. Above all else though - connect, connect, connect...and remind yourself that you’re in it for the long haul, it won't necessarily make your life easier now, but you're planting seeds for the future! Treasure any glimmers of hope and lock them up in your memories for a day you really need them!
