I Have to Share this With My Readers!

This site is an amazing resource for us moms! You can look up certain brands of foods and the ingredients to stay away from food allergies or additives. Search “Gluten-Free” and “cookies” for example and you will be guided to a list of treats that will fit your needs. I am a bit picky when it comes to refrring a good resource, but I feel secure in sharing this one: http://FoodEssentials.com Tina Turbin

Tina Turbin-Writing While Traveling

OK, many people write in and connect up via social sites asking about future books. Well my friends, YES there are more books. I just have been so darn busy I have not shared the details, sorry about that. I will fill you in: I have three books, yes three lovely books in the works. All varied in content and purpose but all 3 so charming and delightful. They will tickly your fancy when the timing is right and they are ready to be launched as planned, hot off the press.

A Mother’s Role is a Valuable Asset to Our Society

Chances are, you have an idea of just how important you are as a mother in your household. For instance, what if you were to go out of town for a week? Who would get the kids ready for school, take them to soccer or ballet, help them with their homework? And could you imagine the state of the house after such a length of time? As helpful as your spouse or children may be, without having Mom around to spur them through their daily chores, how often would they do the dishes or remember to take out the trash? And then there’s the matter of how they would feed themselves. Clearly, Mom, if it weren’t for you, your household would probably collapse.

Getting the Kids to Listen: Danny the Dragon Author Offers Some Tips

I was sent this lovely article written and published recently after a brief interview

by reseacher and writer Robert Bell.

I thought I’d share this with all of you

It’s time for dinner and you’ve called to your children three times so far to turn off the TV and come to the table to eat.  You start using threats of coming into the living room yourself to turn off the television, to ban TV for the rest of the night, or to eat their dinners for them, but they still don’t come. Sound familiar?

Turn off the TV—Tips for Families

Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it does. Even though last season’s hit shows were full of stuff you didn’t want your kids to watch or even know about, you turn on the television to find that this season’s shows are even more shocking. One of the best decisions I made years ago for myself and for my family was to cut down on television drastically.

Pregnancy.org – Live: Before, During & After

Thursday, November 12th, 2:00 p.m. EST

Have you had one of those days (weeks, months) where the kids are driving you batty? Do you reflect on your day feeling as if you’ve done nothing but lecture, yell, or simply given up, pulling your hair out in the process? Whether it’s redirecting behaviors, special challenges, parenting pep talks, parent coaching or even how the adults treat each other, each action lends itself to the overall peace of the home.
