Parenting Styles: How 10 (or even 5) Minutes of Yoga Made Me a Better Mother Wed Mar 14 2018
I’ve been told by many people that I should learn to meditate. I’m quite sure that meditation would release some of the tension in my shoulders and probably relax some of the wrinkles around my eyes, but that sitting still and emptying your mind thing is not one of my strong suits. view at modernparentsmessykids

We have all read the horrific stories of cyber-bullying, and it would destroy me to watch either of my kids being harassed online, or in real life for that matter. We talk about internet safety often—perhaps too much, it turned out. view at modernparentsmessykids
