Hand-Me Down Hats and Heritage

By |April 15th, 2015|

Old felt hats, two of them. One is perched high on a shelf at home and I have the other on proud display in my office.

They’re dress hats, dark and classy—the kind that might make kids today think of old mobster movies. But when I look at those hats, each with a black and white […]

My Side Of The Radio

By |April 15th, 2015|

When my kids were younger, I remember they didn’t like my kind of music, and they didn’t mind telling me so. When I was driving with them somewhere and I’d turn on the radio, they’d cringe and groan at the twangy country tunes that stream through the speakers.

“I can’t believe anyone could like this stuff,” […]

Teach Children Wisely and Within the Law

By |March 25th, 2015|

Studies show that more than 40% of underage children are getting their alcohol at home. Apparently, parents are allowing their children to drink at home in hopes of teaching them to drink responsibly. Even though the legal drinking age is 21, parents believe that as long as they are supplying the alcohol and the kids […]

Parenting from a Distance

By |March 25th, 2015|

Parenting is a fascinating journey. It travels the road from spending every minute of your life caring for your children to just passing them every now and then in the hallway to eventually dropping them off at their own place. It’s not easy when they move into the adult stage of life. Instead of parenting […]

Don’t Drive on the Sidewalk

By |March 3rd, 2015|

Everyone has experienced impatience while driving. The bus in front of you isn’t going fast enough. The car behind you is too close for comfort. The car next to you is drifting over into your lane because they’re texting. You’re in a hurry because you’re late for work, and now the school bus you’re behind […]

Let’s Be Honest

By |March 3rd, 2015|

No parent likes to admit it, but their children probably lie from time to time. Whether it’s about homework or chores, kids tell fibs when they feel in a jam or there’s something they’d rather be doing instead of what they should be doing.
Statistics reveal that 80% of all lies are undetected and that one […]

Add it up

By |March 3rd, 2015|

There really is something to the idea of the circle of life. I believe it’s a circle that revolves around giving and taking. From age 0 to age 16, we do a lot of taking. We can’t help it. We are dependent on our parents for just about everything. About the only thing that kids […]

Focus On Kids

By |January 30th, 2015|

Think back to high school when you had your first serious relationship. It probably lasted anywhere from six days to six weeks to maybe six months. Then you broke up. Remember how it hurt to see that person so you tried to avoid them, but it was difficult because you had three classes together. Within […]

Good Kids Make Bad Decisions

Grant has been playing football since he was nine years old. He began playing in elementary school and then progressed to the high school level, where he played on the freshmen team, followed by junior varsity, and finally varsity in eleventh grade. Due to his skills and abilities, Grant was often brought up to the […]

Get in the Game

By |December 29th, 2014|

I was at a friend’s house recently and the scene inside his home reminded me of the days when I was parenting young children. There was stuff all over the floor. There were people pushing and pulling each other. There were children seemingly being pulled apart. There was debris flying through the air. A paper […]
