The Benefits Of Gardening With Kids

Gardeners it is time to get the kids in the garden and teach them where "real" food comes from. The expectations children have come up with for their food these days is insane!

Maternally Challenged

Moms, if you think your life is going to be perfect, I've got news: It's not happening. This book details the many curveballs life has thrown my way. - Wise words from Maternally Challenged : How My Special Needs Son Taught Me to Sack Up & Laugh by Kathy Chlan, who also runs the popular blog Unfiltered Mom . Kathy knows first hand that the only thing you can expect when you’re expecting is, well, the unexpected. 25 years ago she gave birth to her first son, who would be diagnosed with developmental and learning disabilities by the age of two. She has since helped thousands of moms who are also “parenting by the seat of their pants” navigate the chaos of raising kids, and the challenges and joys that come with raising one with special needs.  “As a mother of two sons, including one with a special needs, I know what it’s like to have a family that doesn’t fit the mold,” says Chlan. “But all mothers face adversities in life.

Educating Children About Money

Teaching children about money is so much more than simple mathematics skills yet it’s something that’s essential for life.    Your child is never too young to start learning about the role of money and how it’s used. The good news is that there are unlimited opportunities to help your child learn about fiscal matters without sitting down in front of a calculator.    Here are some fun ways you can educate your child about money with different activities for each age range.    Toddlers   At this age, it’s almost impossible to teach a true understanding of money but even young toddlers can start to learn the basic concepts.    Good money skills involved delayed gratification; in other words, not spending all your money at once! This is one of the hardest things for a child to accept but you can start teaching it young, using sweets instead of real money.    Have a large jar of sweets filled to the top, and at regular intervals allow your child to just have one or

Fun Things To Do This Spring/Summer

Spring is quickly transitioning into summer, and while the weather is heating up and the kids gear up for the upcoming “outdoors season”, the occasional rainy day still brings up the classic question: what can we do as a family while trapped inside the house, waiting for better weather? There are a number of different things that can be done to pass time on rainy spring days! I have provided a list of some of my favorite things to try out below! Board Games A classic rainy day activity. For younger kids, there are always the classics like snakes and ladders and candyland. These are great ways to teach kids a little bit of math (counting squares counts as math, right?) while having some fun. For older kids, games like risk can take up a whole afternoon, as your family turns into a little UN and the diplomatic negotiations start. Board games are an easy way to get the whole family around the table for some wholesome fun! Movie Marathons With the advent of streaming tv and

Have a Big House? Here Is How to Use It to Make Money for Your Family

If you find yourself in possession of a house that has more room than you need, you might be considering downsizing. Whether your kids have gone off to college or you just lost a job and can’t afford the payments, there is another option you can try before you put it on the market. Use the extra space you have to make money. Rent Out a Room If the kids have left and you’ve got a bedroom or two available, consider renting one of the rooms out to a boarder. On a month to month basis, you can charge a pretty decent rate for a single room, and generally people looking to rent a single room are single, only in the area temporarily, and won’t cause any issues. It can become difficult for some people to have someone in the house all the time, so make sure everyone in your family is comfortable with the idea. Start a Business You can also choose to turn your extra space into the hub for a new business. There are any number of things you can do , from caring for other peopl
