7 Ways on How to Exercise With Your Kids

Life in this present time can feel busier than ever. More and more bills seem to appear out of thin air and time seems non-existent. In this fast changing pace of the world, we never feel like the ticker is on our side. The little habits for your kids that are good for them are often overlooked because of the run of the mill excuses, “too busy” or “no time.” Well, for everyone that feels that way sometimes, it can be a lot easier than that. Make exercising with your kids fun and not so much of a chore.

1. Music to your ears. Put on your favorite song (age appropriate of course) on the speakers. Dance the day away with your kids! Show them those moves you used to bust out in high school.

2. Play soccer. Grab a soccer ball and head to a nearby park. Take turns chasing each other with the ball.  Children love soccer practice.

3. Video games. There are so many virtual games out there now from tennis, ping pong to bowling. Figure out what interests your child the most and challenge them! Winner gets an extra cookie.  Continue reading

Be The Change You Wish To See

As I look at some of our readers, myself included, and I see many people who have gone through life-shifting moments and are in process of change. We all want to change something about our lives, something about ourselves, something about the direction we are going in. There is no better catalyst for personal change than being a parent. We change because we want something better for our children, and it might be that you are fighting against the tide, but be determined to create that change for them.

So how do we change, how does that work? Well truth be told, change is not all too easy. But if you are going through something, and Lord knows we are all “Going through something,” than here are a few things to keep in mind while you strive to be the change you wish to see:

1. Identify what you are trying to accomplish, and ask yourself, what is holding you back? What step will you need to take to get to where you want to be?

2. Realize that change is usually a long process. Think of water erosion, on drip at a time. It would be nice if we could change our situations overnight, but that is not often realistic. So once you identify what you wish to change, take a step.

3. Mountains. There will be setbacks, speed bumps, and in some situations people who will stand in your way. Once you identify what exactly the problem is, find the answer. Want to get out of debt? Make a plan, even if it’s paying it down $5 dollars at a time, take a step.. “Drip”

4. Follow through and be consistent. I struggle with all these issues, I am sure just like you. But figuring out what you want is important. Every good story is about someone who wants something and goes through hell to get it.

5. Mark your progress. Even if it is a small success, remind yourself it’s a small success. And as you go about making these changes remember “baby steps, baby steps.

6. Lastly. Keep your eye’s open. Often along the way there are little things that fall into place, they might not be what we wanted in the moment, however, if we keep an open attitude we might find that it’s what we need.

6 Things Every Parent Needs To Know.

You see it all too often these days, in the supermarket, walking down the street, even at Starbucks. The undisciplined child who is throwing a tantrum, or is talking back in some unknown language, that sounds like something you would rather strangle than hug.

And herein lies that major issue: Children are not the problem, they are the result of the problem. What I mean is, that parents these days, are largely to blame for the child’s misgivings and wrong doings.

And we all know, that this, could never be “Our” child who just had a nuclear meltdown because, “No, we cannot get a kinder egg today.” So what do you do? How are you supposed to handle a child when they are not listening to you, when all seems lost in their little Worlds?

Well, honestly, in order for you to be a parent that your child will listen to, you have to gain your child’s respect. I have been lucky. I started working with my Little girl very early on. And although there is a Vast difference in the parenting style between my Ex and myself. It only takes a few words, a few actions to see a drastic adjustment when I pick her up.

Here’s what you need to know:  if you do this for a week, you might just be amazed.
