The Minds of Boys [Apr. 1st, 2009|05:02 pm]
Positive Parenting
[Current Location |at my desk]
[mood |educated]

For those of you that have BOYS!!! You must go out and buy this book: The Minds of Boys "Saving our sons from falling behind in school and in life" by Michael Gurian and Kathy Stevens - I have learned so much from this book. It will change the way that you think about boys (and men) and the ways that they express themselves, how their brains work and why we think they are always so "hyper"
I am a recent single mother of a 13 year old (joint physical custody) - I am finding it's never too late to figure out my son and how to help him. I encourage you to read this now if you are a new mother/parent with a boy. The more you know now the better you will be able to adapt to your son's mind and the way it works.

Trying to Save Lauren [Jul. 22nd, 2006|12:46 pm]
Positive Parenting
My daughter Lauren (who is only 26) is dying of cervical cancer. She is at a stage where with a lot of treatment it could go away. The problem that we have is that despite insurance we cannot afford to treat her too much longer. She is my only child and I'm desperate to find any way to get funds to try to save her life.

Please go to my journal. There I have a button set up to recieve donations for those willing to help. Any little bit will help.

I also go into a bit more detail on what a wonderful person my daughter is.

www.mamarevolution.com/phpbb2/index.php [Jun. 18th, 2006|02:08 pm]

Mamarevolution.com was started in early winter 2004 by four young mamas who needed a place where they belonged. Too young and alternative for babycenter and too old for the teen based online communities, they struck out to make a home for mamas who just didn’t fit in anywhere else. After a few nights of brainstorming and women sharing their talents, Mamarevolution.com was born.

Mamarevolution is a pro-choice, feminist community who seeks to support, encourage and educate young women and mothers from all backgrounds and cultures. Our goal is to provide the community and support that is so desperately needed as we fight for our rights as parents and women, and to defeat the social stereotypes that surround young or alternative parents.

While we promote breastfeeding and natural parenting, we recognize that each family is unique and has their own set of needs and customs. We respect and support all families and their allies in their quest to raise strong, positive and socially conscious children.

My husband and I just had a baby almost 3 months ago (woah time flies) so I obviously have been staying home... which means a big budget cut for us; but...Both of these websites are GREAT! I've made over $200 in the past 2months from them (and yes really have been paid)! M
The surveys can get redundent, but are worth it. Treasure Trooper isn't as quick to okay things you've done, but I think has better payouts! Check em out! (Warning: THEY ARE SLIGHTLY ADDICTING!!!)

New Community [Mar. 20th, 2006|04:23 pm]

I'm not sure if I am supposed to do this, so if I am stepping on a few toes, please let me know. :)

In the next few days I will be setting up a new community on LJ. Basically it is for moms who have things that they don't need anymore and would like to donate it to moms who do need it. It is similar to freecycle but for moms. If you have some ideas, feel free to share.

Hi everyone, I'm new.

My name is Jesse, I'm nineteen years old and a new mother of a 2 month old baby boy. I've been trying to find a good parenting community on livejournal to ask for advice, etc and was hoping this would be my last stop. But I need a little bit of advice. Lately my boy, who was always so well behaved and hardly ever cried, has been having pretty extreme crying jags totally out of no where. He's very hard to soothe, and nothing appears to be wrong with him. My fiance's mother suggested mylicon drops, but nothing's helped. Has anyone else had this problem?

I noticed this community hasnt had a recent post, but I thought it would be a good place to post this so hopefully some of you will read and respond.

I'm a writer w/ a degree in Childhood Development from Ohio State and I'm creating a life success program for parents and children ages 6-12.

In an effort to get first-hand info from as many parents as possible, I'm posting this wherever I think parents might see it. Anyway, I'll stop rambling. Here's the survey:

thanks in advance for taking the time to read and respond.

OK I really really need help. I have 2 childrem Sam 3 and Tali nearlly 2. My son is a mild mannored child and normally very well behaved. Tali is a nightmare, she doesnt sleep she has huge tantrams that started at about 5 months old. My dh works nights so im alone half the day and at night with them. Nothin i do makes any difference, i have tryed time outs, prasing good behaviour ignoring bad behaviour i have even smaked her even though i dont really like doing it. Im getting to the point that i really feel i might snap and hurt her. I love her to bits but im at my wits end here. My dh thinks part of the problem is that she is a mini copy of me which is why we seem to rub each other up the wrong way. any ideas or surgestions would be great
