By Jennifer

“Clean your plate!”
How many times did you hear that as a child?
Or this, “You’re not getting any desert until you eat everything!”
How many kids are being made to feel like that have to eat everything in front of them in order to be rewarded?
This is a parenting practice that I’m firmly against (but that’s […]

Cook With Your Kids!

By Jennifer

When I was younger, I didn’t cook with my mom the way I did when I was older. Rather, I cooked with my Dad! My mom was working her own business, and would often spend evenings seeking out clients or attending meetings, so often me, my brothers, or my Dad would handle dinner. I […]

As a work at home mom, I have a lot on my plate. Trying to homeschool my kids, keep the house clean, and run two businesses all while not losing my sanity is hard enough as it is. Add in events, parties, church functions, and attempting to get some down time in … and […]
