Setting Rules With Smartphone for Children

We live in this day and age where things like a smartphone are expected. There are parents out there who genuinely feel guilty if their child is the only one amongst their friend circle that doesn’t have a cell phone or the freedom to walk around town aimlessly. I never feel guilty. I parent my children the way I parent them, other children have nothing to do with my rules nor my children. With that being said, if a child is willing to work for extra items, such as a smartphone, or if the situation calls for a child needing […]

Good People Make Bad Choices

I look all over the Internet from Twitter to Facebook to Alexa hot list of links each day, every single day. One thing that I am seeing a lot of is this finger pointing. Did you know that when I was 18 years old that I got a DWI? How about my drinking of alcohol that started well before I even want to admit to anyone, because I know someday my children may read this and they do not need to know an age I started. My children do know that I started drinking alcohol and had sex way too […]

I haven’t been to the Hampton Beach State Park in New Hampshire since my teen years, and even then I don’t recall actually stopping, getting out and enjoying the place.

What Does a Person on State Assistance Look Like?

There was a recent blog post spreading around Facebook about Food Stamps and that is what encouraged me to write this blog post. The post was about how judged a woman felt about using food stamps, because the man behind her uttered something negative about her using food stamps to pay for her groceries. It really is so sad that there are many entitled, judgmental people in this world that they think they can judge someone on a simple first glance of that person. I don’t think any of us  owe an explanation to anyone about our life nor our […]
