Finding a new dentist can be hard. We moved to a new area a few years ago and had to start from scratch finding new dentists and doctors. The process was a bit overwhelming, especially since we didn’t know anyone in the area to get recommendations from. I wish I’d known then about The Smile Generation, a referral service that helps you find trusted dentists in your community.
As a mom, it is my job to make sure my kids understand how to be good stewards. This extends beyond the four walls of our own home. Knowing that I’m going to be sending them out into the world, I want to be sure that they understand what it means to truly care for the resources we have. I’ve done a lot of thinking over the last several years about how to teach kids about mindful eating. The changes we’ve made as a family because of this have been so important.
Nobody likes being sick. It is a miserable experience that no one enjoys, but it happens to the best of us, especially this time of year.
We’d been pretty lucky this year, and I thought we were going to escape all the bugs that were going around. Unfortunately, we weren’t so lucky and it hit us over spring break. Fabulous timing.
Every single member of my family of eight spent their holiday vacation hanging out in a condo praying that we’d be healthy enough to enjoy our vacation before it ended.
When your kid is sick and not getting better, every parent gets to the point where they wonder if a doctor needs to step in and prescribe something, like antibiotics, to help get your child healthy.
I’m in denial that I have a teenager. It snuck up on me. I know they say it will do that but it’s still surprising when it happens. I felt like I had the baby and toddler years totally figured out, but the teen years are new territory for me. Even something simple like determining which vaccines my son needs now is a bit overwhelming. Most parents believe that vaccines are important but the actual vaccination rates for teens are well below what they should be.
