 Article Title :: Only A Mother Would Know
There were many times that I felt happy and many times that I felt lonely but there are ordinary moments that my soul counts extraordinary for reasons that only a child would care to know.When I was hot in fever crying with almost unbearable pain while it would still take three more hours before the first ray of sunlight to shine over our countryside village, mama was sitting close to my bed feeling the same pain I had. Later that day, she came from school (she was a school teacher) and I was startled when she kissed my cheeks being so happy telling me that I was the first honor of the class!Those are special moments since mama seldom kisses any of her children -- it is not   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Jump-Start your Kids: Combating Sedentary Youth Lifestyles
IntroductionYoung people today enjoy more leisure options than ever before. In previous generations, many kids had limited access, both financial and physical, to commercial leisure options, not to mention a greater number of responsibilities around the home. Free time used to consist of largely ad-hoc (improvised) leisure options wherein kids were not only the participants, but also the constructors, exercising both their bodies and minds in the process. In our modern age of high technology, commercialization and mass production, these traditional patterns have undergone a dramatic shift towards leisure that is largely passive and sedentary in mode, and commercially consume  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Parenting Tips: Mastering the Teen Years
I guess one of the nicer things that can be said about being a teenager is that it is an art, just like anything else.There doesn't seem to be an instruction booklet or even an owner's manual. Most of the teen-agers I work with feel they are sort of making it up as they go along. So there are lots of questions that go unanswered.Who am I? Who will I be? Who will I model myself after?There don't seem to be many useful choices, and it gets frustrating and confusing sometimes.Then there is this whole issue of self-esteem. How are teenagers (or adults for that matter) supposed to feel good about themselves when the standard held out to them is unrealisti  (read full article)

 Article Title :: 7 Blessings from a Father to His Children
The car phone rang just as I was stopping on my way home to pick up my daughter from her after-school basketball practice."I know this is short notice, but could you please give Tina a lift home from practice tonight?!"The voice on the phone sounded more than a little frantic, a feeling I know well. "Sure, no problem," I replied. "I just pulled up to the school."It was a parent of one of my daughter's team mates. It's great when parents are able and willing to help each other. Others have done the same for me more often than I can count. Working and raising children can easily burn your candle at both ends. Fortunately, most of these parents try to help each other by   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Family Meetings: Parents Help Your Kids Discuss With This Special Formula
Do sarcasm, put-downs, and pouting keep you from holding Family Meetings? Do you want your kids to speak up, to listen, and to be respectful? Do you want them to become people of character?In his book, Character Is Destiny, Senator John McCain said, “It is your character alone, that will make your life happy or unhappy…and you choose it.” Parents, if you want your children to be happy, help them to choose character. The Family Meeting is an excellent tool to help them make that choice.Perhaps, like other parents, you fear the battles that could occur during family meetings. Maybe you don’t know how to teach your kids the skills they need. If so,   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Parenting: On the Importance of Fathers
Several years ago my wife was out of town for the weekend, and Jonathon, our 2-year-old son, and I were at the house playing.A friend of my wife called. When she was told my wife was out of town, she said "So you're home babysitting." My response was, "No, I'm home being a father."I'm sure my wife's friend meant no harm. It's just that I dislike the assumption that if a father is with his children without his wife, then he is baby-sitting.Not so. He is being a father.It did get me thinking, however, about the role of fathers in our society.Too many children are abandonedI suppose that I am one of the lucky ones. My dad was usually there for  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Kids and Teens and the Phone: 2 Things Not to Do
Q: We are having a big problem at our house over the use of the phone. It rings constantly, we never get to see our daughter and she would talk all night if we let her. Help!!A. Using the phone seems to be a rite of passage for many teen-agers. If this has become a problem in your home, the good news is that at least your kid has friends and is not overly shy. The bad news is that telephone use is an area ripe for power struggles.Over the years, I have seen families get into simply horrendous battles over this relatively simple issue.2 things not to doExcept in the most extreme circumstances, don't completely cut your teen-  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Kids and Teens and the Phone: Six Criteria for Addressing the Problem
The difference between trying to control vs. manage a teen-ager is all in how you approach the situation.A management approach meets the following six criteria:1. The parents are clearly in charge2. The teen, over time, learns and earns the ability to be more and more in charge of herself3. There is a clear map for continually building trust and responsibility4. The parents have a way to monitor the progress of the teen5. There are clear consequences when the teen demonstrates that she cannot be in charge of herself (just as in the real world)6.

 Article Title :: Family Rituals: Communicating Values
Family values . . . now that's a term we've certainly heard a lot about lately.In the midst of all the rhetoric, have you ever wondered how values become established and communicated within the family?Values communicated over timeOne of the key ingredients to establishing values within a family is time ... time spent simply being together and experiencing life together.If this is true, here's an interesting and frightening statistic: The average American family spends only l4l/2 minutes together each day. To make matters worse, 12i/£ of those minutes are spent correcting, disciplining, etc. This leaves a bare 2 minutes for communicating values in our fa  (read full article)
