Parenting and your Marriage

I'm headed right now to go do a speaking engagement on the importance of taking care of your marriage while raising your kids. I always talk about how you must take care of yourself first and then bring your best self to your marriage. Then, you'll be able to have a happy and fulfilling relationship which will enable you to bring not only a happy YOU, but also a happy couple to the job of parenting. Then, it all falls into place. That and a few parenting tools, and voila! you have a happy family!

Take some time today to give to your relationship. It's not too late. It's never too little. Be kind, be giving and have fun! You'll be glad you did!

Healthy Baby Happy Home: A must-have resource for green parenting!

As both a parent of an active toddler and an enthusiastic, expectant mom - nothing is more sacred to me than the successful creation of a healthy, happy and “Green” home environment for my beloved children. So, needless to say I count myself as ‘privileged’ to have been referred by a mom in our parenting group to the Healthy Baby Happy Home website. Using their developmentally sound resources, I discovered countless, affordable ways to create a ‘model’ green home environment. And though, our family is admittedly on a tight budget these days, I have managed to discover valuable ‘green parenting’ techniques including: practical ways to eliminate the dangerous toxins and chemicals lurking in our home and in popular cleaning products; to baby-proofing, safety tips and even an eco-friendly nutritional guide (all within my limited budget, no less)!

So, for any new and expectant parents who similarly desire to create an affordable, efficient and healthy green home for their children, but do not know how or where to begin…I wholeheartedly recommend Healthy Baby Happy Home as a one-stop resource site and book for any parent on a mission to create a healthy eco-friendly home environment. When you get a chance, visit and don’t bother to thank me, just be kind enough to refer me to any other empowering, practical parenting tips, sites or resources you have discovered on your parenting journey!
