I Miss The Village - HuffPost Parents
cute detail shot inspiration
I miss the village-- wonderful article on motherhood. Recommend all moms read this. We need each other.
"i miss the village"...as an introvert, this sounds a little overwhelming for me but there are certain things we're definitely missing out on by taking the community aspect out of raising kids!
VILLAGE- This article makes me miss the village I never had! But am building within my Md Family!
I Miss The Village- Every day I go about my life: drive my children to and fro, make breakfast, lunch and dinner, and change my baby's diapers in my four-walled house while the world buzzes around me busy and fast. My little plays on the floor and I watch him pluck toy after toy out of the large box in the corner of the room and although my life is rich with many things, I think about you because I miss the village.

Great advice and direction! Child discipline based on personity type ~ from the Child Whisperer
interesting food for thought
I'm not sure this is "the secret" to raising kids, but I do think there is truth in the fact that there is a message/need beneath children's bad behavior.
child behavior. I agree that personality types should definitely be taken into account when raising children, but that doesn't mean wrong behavior occurs (or should be allowed) just because "that's who the are". An interesting infographic to help quell the tantrum, because it helps you think about why it is happening, or what you can do to stop it, without just "no, stop. that's wrong--time out." More of a "no, that response is wrong. how can i help you get past your upsetness?"
Good advice on parenting according to a child's personality type //

Christmas magic: EVERYBODY SHOULD PIN THIS TO SAVE FOR WHEN THE TIME COMES :) The truth about Santa - this letter is inspiring. Don't want to forget this when the time comes! (This made me tear up...what a beautiful mom!)
For when the time comes... The truth about Santa letter to your children.
the truth about santa, letter to your kids who busted you... .Have to remember this to keep the Christmas magic
The truth about Santa Here’s what I wrote: Christmas magic Dear Lucy, Thank you for your letter. You asked a very good question: “Are you Santa?” I know you’ve wanted the answer to this question for a long time, and I’ve had to give it careful thought to know just what to say. The answer is no. I am not Santa. There is no one Santa. I am the person who fills your stockings with presents, though. I also choose and wrap the presents under the tree, the same way my mom did for me, and the same way her mom did for her. (And yes, Daddy helps, too.) I imagine you will someday do this for your children, and I know you will love seeing them run down the stairs on Christmas morning. You will love seeing them sit under the tree, their small faces lit with Christmas lights. This won’t make you Santa, though. Santa is bigger than any person, and his work has gone on longer than any of us have lived. What he does is simple, but it is powerful. He teaches children how to have belief in something they can’t see or touch. It’s a big job, and it’s an important one. Throughout your life, you will need this capacity to believe: in yourself, in your friends, in your talents and in your family. You’ll also need to believe in things you can’t measure or even hold in your hand. Here, I am talking about love, that great power that will light your life from the inside out, even during its darkest, coldest moments. Santa is a teacher, and I have been his student, and now you know the secret of how he gets down all those chimneys on Christmas Eve: he has help from all the people whose hearts he’s filled with joy. With full hearts, people like Daddy and me take our turns helping Santa do a job that would otherwise be impossible. So, no. I am not Santa. Santa is love and magic and hope and happiness. I’m on his team, and now you are, too. I love you and I always will. Mama

Do everything without whining, complaining or arguing. Every one has their own jar. Start off the week with a set amount of quarters in each jar. If they are caught whining or complaining, they lose a quarter. At the end of the week, they get the money that's left or you could put it towards an activity.

Kids Real, For Kids, Growing Up, Words Work, So True, Compass International, Word Work, Teaching Kids, Teaching Children
This is so true... we need to give kids responsibilities, and teach them to do unto others as you would have them do to you!
Great article on the Problem of Entitlement, teaching children to serve @Compassion International International | #itsaboutgiving "Once upon a time it was normal for kids to say, “please” and “thank you”, and they were conscious that they were contributors to the welfare of others. They now generally say, “I deserve what I want, when I want it, without earning it, and I’m bitter if I don’t get it”. They believe the world is theirs to manipulate for their own pleasurable purposes."
Great article on giving kids real responsibility and why. Instead of growing up to believe they are here for others, kids grow up to believe that others are here for them.
Great article on the Problem of Entitlement-such an important thing to teach kids. otherwise they grow up to be brats
My kids are going to know what the word "work" means. And LOVE it.
