Valentine’s Day Surprise for Kids

Valentine’s Day Surprises For Your Child

I know that Valentine’s is often thought of for a husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend situation but don’t forget the little loves in your life… your children! Showing love to your child can be simple but significant. Remember, we are training our children at a very early age to express their love for their future mate. That is a big responsibility as parents! Showing your child by example is the best way to teach. They will be watching how you love YOUR mate, others around you, and even how you love THEM! So, do it well, mama!

Finding Ways to Help Children Sleep All Night

 Tired Moms Find Help Getting Children to Sleep

Written by Jess

How many of you have struggled with a child who struggles with sleep? My first three children did not sleep through the night until they were six months old. I have to admit that I was jealous when my friends would mention that their newborn was sleeping for 6 hour stretches every night. Once they decided to sleep through the night, they were excellent sleepers – often sleeping for 10-12 hours at a stretch and still taking naps. It was awesome!
