5 Unique Ways to get Kids to do Chores + Printables
June 16, 2019

How many of us mom's struggle to get our kids to do chores?  I've tried so many things and I've concluded that kids actually like structure, which includes chores.  So, I've started to give them a simple schedule of chores to do. It's hard with two and I definitely had fears of parenting two.  But every parent makes mistakes. Sibling rivalry is ramped in our house, so, I put a list of chores in between their bedrooms to remind them and myself.  I don't want to hear them argue about who's doing or not doing what chore. But all children are different and respond to different methods of teaching, especially with chores. So, I've picked out various methods to get them to do chores.  I tried money.  …

Why Inclusive Playgrounds Help with My Kid's Social Skills
October 29, 2018

I have boys.  Busy, active, social, athletic and rambunctious boys.  They love being outside and they love playgrounds.  They also like interacting with others. Before I had children, I never understood my friends who had kids that were always outside.  They never stayed home.  It wasn't until I had children that I understood.  My boys especially like playing at inclusive playgrounds. Inclusive playgrounds have the equipment that help them develop physical, cognitive, sensory and social skills.  By being outside it gives them an opportunity to grow, have fun, and make new friends.  This is where they learned most of their social skills until they went to school. My kids are not the kind of kids that play alone. They like to socialize and be adventurous. But …
