Getting Your Office to Work for You: A Feng Shui Checklist

March 23, 2022

Second, only to the bedroom, the office is where you spend most of your time—certainly your waking time. If you’re exposed to something that doesn’t feel right, it can negatively impact you and play out in any number of ways.

There could be a conflict with authority figures, a drop-off in business, employee problems, morale issues, or you may feel like you have reached an impasse and can't seem to move forward.

How to Help Your Teen Break Their Cell-Phone Addiction

March 08, 2022

Parents across the nation are increasingly aware of the dangers of phone addiction and excessive screen time. In younger children, this addiction can be remedied somewhat simply by having an honest conversation about screens and by taking away screens after your child has used up their allotted time.

The Waiting Game: Teaching Patience to Children

February 17, 2022

You are probably familiar with the impatience of children of all ages. “Mommy, how much longer?” or “Daddy, why do we have to wait?” or “Can we go home now? I’m bored.”

These are just a few murmurings from an infinite well of questions coming from my little girl. Whether we’re at the grocery store, doctor’s office, or simply in the car driving, she lacks patience. But I don’t blame my little one… everything was instant when she was a baby! They cry, we come. They’re completely dependent on us. So it’s understandable when young children have difficulty waiting.
