My favorite "payable" of all time has got to be a job we've titled "dinner helper." (Check out this blog post, or our book if the word "payable" is throwing you for a loop.) I've mentioned before that we consider some life skills to be payables--including (but not limited to) anything that goes down in the kitchen! "Dinner helper" is the eventual catch-all chore for many, if not all of the skills that fall under the "Feed Myself" category on our "I Can" lists. When my kids...

It's up!  The paperback of Time Well Spent: Raising Confident, Independent, Financially Responsible Children (I know, I know--same title as my blog--I'm super creative) is finally ready to go! The e-book version will be released on Thursday, September 1st for those of you who subscribed a while back for 20% off our ebook--I promise I didn't forget you. When our family started this hair-brained book-writing adventure one year ago, I honestly didn't know if this day would ever come. But it has. And in the...

So, I'm late. Summer has already commenced and with it--the summer bucket lists of all the elaborate and simple adventures your family is going to cram into the weeks before school starts again. Lucky for me, however, there's still time (and possibly still room on your summer bucket lists) to post about a resource we made that I think you're going to love us for. At least I hope you will. So what is it? Well, we've created a bunch of lists that are chuck full...

So our recent "tricky person" blog post spread like wildfire--something I truly never expected. We've been both humbled and grateful that our story has been the catalyst for so many family stay-safe discussions.  The overwhelming response to that post made it obvious to me that I am but a small fish in a sea of concerned parents who are thirsty for resources that can help us keep our kids safe. Teaching our kids the information and skills they need in order to handle unsafe situations breeds...

Note: I've recently noticed this post circulating under the headline of "attempted abduction." Please know I have never asserted that my boys were nearly abducted. There is no way of knowing what these individuals' intentions were in approaching my sons. I only know that it made my sons feel scared and unsafe. Quick backstory. Actually, I'm incapable of condensing anything so it can be considered "quick" but I'll try. Three days ago I was in the shower around 8:30am when it felt like I was shot in my...

It's already been a week since I last posted. Wow, time flies. Especially when you're trying to write a book about spending meaningful teaching moments with your kids while you beg them to leave you the heck alone so you can get something done. Ha, I'll get it eventually. I hope. Nevertheless, it's now Friday and in an effort to blog about something that won't be a complete waste of your time, I find my mind turning to one of my favorite...
