Is there a difference between being kind and being nice? Honestly, who cares? This is a compelling argument to let this one go.

Some of the dialogue about what is the difference between being nice and being kind is unnecessary and some of it is harmful. This post finally explains why.

Leaking is a problem for SO MANY women. It doesn't have to be, though. 

Hat tip to +Bonbon Break for having this conversation!

Before I had my first son, going for a run or heading to a group fitness class was simple and the choices I made were superficial. Post-baby, things changed.

LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER #TwinCities  casting call is UP!

#LTYM  is a series of live readings on or around Mother's Day to celebrate motherhood--the good, the bad, the funny, the sad, the ridiculous, and of course, the beautiful.

Readers are NOT all women and they're NOT all writers and they're NOT all mothers. They're people with stories. Take a look, we absolutely want to hear YOUR story.

It is, quite literally, the most wonderful time of the year: Listen to Your Mother season is in full swing! Listen to Your Mother is the celebration of motherhood that we all wish we’d thought of, and that luckily national director Ann Imig did think of! Now affectionately known as LTYM, Listen to Your Mother is a series of live, on-stage readings across North America on or around Mother’s Day. Most LTYM readers aren’t professional writers and ma...

"As a mom of daughters, I thought that I understood the female brain very well. Some days I feel like I cannot relate to either of my daughters. I have no idea what they need or what they want. Even though I gave birth to them, I feel like I am not being heard or understood. Where is my motherhood manual? What do you mean I am doing this without a guide or a life preserver?"

Awesome post on #parenting  via +Bonbon Break

This is why we have a cell phone contract with our tween and how we do it. It's not what you think.

Teaching our kids how to talk about social media, how to call people out for their social media mistakes, how to ask for changes to social media posts is akin to teaching them how to drive.

There is a difference between the everyday and special days, and our kids get that.

My thoughts on the holidays, spoiling our kids, and how these are not automatically connected.

This mother is not worried about over-indulging her kids, even though they get double the holiday presents every year. Why? Kindness.

Puberty was hard enough as a teen, now we get to experience it as a parent. GREAT parenting advice here.

We all put so much effort into taking care of our loved ones, but let’s not forget how to take care of ourselves too. This class is a great place to start my new journey of feeding my body and my mind well.

Here are 27 ways to treat our kids with kindness, to soften the edges of what can be a hard world. A 20% buffer to 80% of parenting lessons, if you will. Small moments of kindness to show our kids, to bookend to the endless lessons and teachable moments that we can find at every turn of every day.

We talk a lot about random acts of kindness. But who we show kindness to should begin at home. These simple acts of kindness ideas will help you do just that.

About raising our boys to be the light, the change, the good.

#parenting   #parentingtips   #parentingadvice   #kindness   #kindnessmatters  
It is so easy to focus on kindness, on good citizenship, being a solitary act—something we do for and to others. But a true act of kindness winning is messier than this. It comes in reaction to unkindness, to salty language, if you will. Times when it’s easy, and even approved, to respond with unkindness.
