Are parents enablers?

Live life

I wasn’t encouraged, pushed or told to by my parents. I do do those things. I go to every show, every, sport event, every Parent Teacher meeting. I push, I check, I moan and I cajole. I do it all. I am NOT a Tiger Mum, but I am pushy, I am not a Helicopter Mum, but I watch what they do, and I try ask them for more.

Letter to Mom 2 – (LTM 2) – Money is no object

I wish I could call you and say these things to you, but I can’t so it seems that this is the only way to do it.

When your past affects your present.

Apparenly Facebook is a hive of past relationships meeting up again, or people meeting new friends online.

Back to school – thank GOODNESS!

School clubs, holiday clubs, friends over, send them to friends. Yes, we did it all, and still it seemed that the six weeks were never going to end. In the words of my teens – holidays suck.

Are you a Disney Dad (or Mom)?

Disney Dad – It’s not time to eliminate discipline or instruction from you. By discussing your expectations with them, you are guiding them to be more responsible and continue becoming the best person they can be.

Inelegant lunch anyone?

My daughter has suddenly become very conscious of herself. Generally, in most girls this is quite normal. However, we have a new twist this week. Lunch.
She has become conscious of how messy her lunch is when she eats it, and would like her food to make her look ‘elegant’ when she eats. Jeepers – bit of a tall order I think?
