Share images, stories, experiences about why you parent. Good, bad, difficult, happy, funny. Share anything. Parenting is about learning and getting better.....for our children.

With companies like Google, Yahoo, and Pixar leading the way in policies dealing with paid parental leave, bringing change to the national level will start from the ground up.

Thats a shame, I am entitled to two weeks paid leave, my wife when she worked as a teacher got 6 months full pay 3 months half and then is entitled to take another 3 months unpaid. The goverment has now brought in other things where the dad can use some of thetime given to the mother. My wife who now only does supply work and makes childrens booties and bibs etc on the side ( does claim on earnings though) will get around £70 a week from the goverment as well. The UK has got it right in a number of places but also handouts arejust as easy to come by for those that cant be bothered to work.

Interesting discussion about teen anger and aggression.
 
Scott Seaman, Ph.D provides insights into why teens act out in anger, and what to do about it.
1. Create a plan together
2. Discuss the behavior, not the person
3. Help teen learn to be responsible for their own actions
4. Evaluate the plan, occasionally

Sometimes it's the simple things. Sometimes, things aren't so simple. Bettering ourselves, makes life better for our kids. Improvement is worth it. Why do you parent?

In my new Santiva column I have my first recorded mindfulness video. Would appreciate any feed back. Any suggestions to make future ones more impactful will be well received.

4 pitfalls to avoid when teaching children to follow directions:
Bribing, Forcing, Orders, Threats.

Although, "BRIBES" do get kids quiet faster, especially if the bribe is the size of their mouth–or takes time to chew. I guess bribes just aren't conducive to healthy child development.
