Thanksgiving Day is everyday

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”

Oprah Winfrey

Thanksgiving is a time that we give thanks for the things we have and reflect on our lives.
We reflect on how life has been going the rest of the year. As strange as it many seem some of us reflect on how the year has gone at the end of the year. We reflect because we want to have a better year next year. Parents as well as everyone else should seek continuous improvement the whole year. Giving thanks should be done everyday. We might be so busy that we forget to be thankful for the “little” things in life. If we tried to count all the things we should be thankful for everyday, then we would never be able to count them all. Today, I will discuss a few things we should be thankful for everyday. read more

Parenting Process

Parenting is the most difficult job in the world.

I have been trying to given some help advice over the past months in hopes of prepare us for the most difficult job and rewarding job you will ever have to have in your life. Parenting is wonderful.However, the reality is that at time it can get difficult. The secret is to learn as you go. Before we became parents we never really thought of difficulties that might occur.

That might have been for the best. The old saying, “when life gives you lemon you make lemonade” absolutely applies to parenting. We just have to make the best of situations as they unfold. Last night my wife,daughter, and I went out for dinner and it was quite an adventure. My daughter did not want to stay still and would not eat(this annoying but normal);she wanted to see the fishes. So we showed her the fishes and since she did not want to eat food, we allowed her to eat all the ice she wanted.They will eat when they get hungry(so don’ t have a cow );however, every child might be different ,but I have noticed scolding and threatening them does more bad than good. read more
