Tell Your Child Today – Consequences of Stealing Cookies

Sometimes…our kids don't look to the future.

For example, they might be, oh, gee, I don't know….stealing cookies at odd moments of the day.

Which is why you notice their belly is expanding faster than their height.

Kids don't quite understand the consequences for snarfing junk food…but the results soon become obvious.

Thus, tell your kids today that they're only sabotaging their own health if they abscond with candy and cookies etc….and then give them coping mechanisms for when the urge becomes too strong.

Halting this *now* before it become a huge problem…it's a good thing indeed.

When business changes….you turn on a dime

It's been a week or so since I've written a parenting post, and I wanted to update y'all what happened to me.

To put it mildly, the change I chose bestowed upon me 18 hour workdays and the like….so I had to halt several of my other sites (like this one).

I'm finally able to poke my nose up for air, and can (hopefully!) start writing more at *all* my sites.

You'll probably also notice a slight switch of my topics here as well…HS1 is started to actively hack java via the command line, which makes me realize that showing you how to endear technical goodies to your kids is a Very Good Thing as well!

Funny how guardian angels work….  :)

Tell Your Child Today – Feet.

Sometimes…our children are a wee bit……


With a capital L.

As in, they'll scream across the house for you to do their bidding.

Hahah! chortles MamaBear in response!

Today, remind your children that the gods gave them feet for a reason.

And no, it's not just to prop them up against their desk.
