The No, No Zone: Talk 2 Your Kids About Molestation

Hey Mamas,

Sorry to say it but we are living in a sick world. In Maryland numerous reports of child molestation are being reported. The sad fact is many of these children are only in the age range of 1-4yrs old. One major thing a mother and father should know is most child molestation occurs from a relative. Many children don't tell their parents because they believe it will hurt the family. I know for myself I talk to my children about good touch and bad touch. I also tell them the right names for their private parts so if something happens they can tell me exactly the area that has been touched. I know it may be horrible to think your child might become a victim of child molestation but it's good that you prepare them early about the society they live in. I remember when I was younger some of my classmates still believed babies were delivered by storks and didn't know the proper name for their private parts. A misinformed child leaves room for child predators to easily harm and take advantage of their ignorance. I let my boys know I don't care if its a relative, teacher, or stranger you tell me if someone touches you the wrong way. Kids are never to young to learn about good touch and  bad touch. If you haven't had that talk with your children maybe you should start today. Molestation is something that can affect a child when they become an adult. We have to make sure we are raising and protecting our children to be happy and successful adults. Talk to your kids today.


Never Underestimate Your Kids

Hello Mamas,

After talking to my twin about getting control over the house work in the home I finally made a chore chart. I usually do all the chores in the house alone believing the boys are too young to help. So when I sat down to make the chore chart I had to think about what could the the boys truly do without driving me crazy. I'm shocked that I came up with about 15 things within the house my little ones can do with no problems. Yesterday we started the chore chart and to my surprised everyone was very excited. My son that's two helped me with breakfast and did a great job. My oldest vacuumed and so much more to my surprise he was able to accomplish on his own. At night before I turned off the lights I looked at the downstairs in disbelief.  I must say I underestimated my sons' ability to do chores. I'm happy for the simple advice I received. I hope these chores will teach the boys responsibility and make them great men in the future. Chores are great for kids and great for mommy too.

Peek-a-Boot: The Hottest Transitional Trend

Hey Mamas,

Some people may think boots in the summer that will never be me. The latest trend is Peep-toe Boots. You can match them up with just about anything. I have seen them in many fun colors that will have your wardrobe popping with color and texture. The fabulous thing about these boots are they transition into fall. You can wear your peep-toe boots with some skinny jeans in the fall and still look in season. Next time you go shopping invest in some peep toe boots. I promise you will get your money's worth out of these shoes.
