Your social media feed might be flooded with momfluencers trying to get you to buy the latest and greatest item or product in the parenting industry, but you might be asking yourself if a parenting course is really worth the investment.
Perhaps you might even feel a bit of mom guilt wondering why you even need a parenting course.
Shouldn’t this come naturally?
Many parents believe that it’s important to provide their children with a variety of toys in order to help them develop different skills.
However, research shows that this may not be the best approach.
In fact, it may be better to limit your kid’s access to all toys at the same time.
We’ve all been there.
Yelling at our kids is an unavoidable part of parenting.
You’re frustrated, you’ve asked nicely, you’ve tried everything you can, and it’s just not working.
Do your kids fight chores like crazy?
I can’t say I blame them, but they’re an essential part of an organized household.
The key to getting your kids motivated – and even excited – to do chores is positive reinforcement.
I have three kids who are all very different.
I would call my first-born “strong-willed” and would often battle head-to-head in a contest of “Most Stubborn.”
These moments were frustrating to say the least yet they did not prepare me for what my second-born would bring to the mix.
What’s one of your worst fears as a mom?
Is it PTA meetings, pushy soccer moms or is it a toddler who defies your every rule?
Moms know how tense and intense it can become…getting our little ones or not so little ones to adhere to the routines we’ve established or are attempting to establish.
It can rightly be a daunting task.
Ideally, we moms, would like everything to go smoothly.
There are currently 152 developing countries, a figure provided for by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
These countries are beset by common challenges, such as high levels of poverty, human resource weakness, and economic vulnerability.
To any parent, then, it can feel scary to want to raise a child in a developing country.
One question that gets asked a lot to new moms with toddlers is, “Are they talking yet?”
I especially get this, as I am a mother of twins to an opinionated girl and exuberant boy. When my twins were 2 years old, they had a lot to say, but people just couldn’t understand them.
My daughter would often say “bye” and “baby,” and my son babbled a lot of meaningful sounds like “wah-wah” for the wagon or “bu” for the ball.
I have been a teacher of the deaf and hard of hearing for 10 years now.
I am still astonished at the statistic that 90% of deaf children are born to hearing parents but most of those parents will never learn to sign.
