This is me! (April 2012)
With this being my first blog, I want you to be familiar with my blog site.
Another part of my blog will be inspirational quotes and poems that I have written over the years. I might include messages from others, but I have always enjoyed writing little words of hope and meaning.
Everyone who knew my mom called her Granny. Some of the most practical and humorous advice you will ever receive will come from the "Granny tab." My mother always gave advice so freely. Sadly, my mother passed away from cancer in April of 2010, but she left a legacy of some of the best parenting skills I know of. I miss you Granny.
Finally, each week I want to discuss some of life's most challenging endeavors. I hope to post some of my research papers that deal with everything from effective parenting styles and skills, the importance of having a socially competent child, understanding motherhood depression and burnout, and the impact of bullying in the family and school just to mention a few. Please feel free to leave comments, questions, or any other ideas you might want me to discuss. As parents, we are learning how to better ourselves everyday. I hope that through the knowledge and experience I have gained we can all make our families more loving, kind, and respectful.
