Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

So often we wonder why we as mothers are struggling so much to make our point. Why is it our families are not listening to us unless we are yelling at the top of our lungs and we make it clear we are finally pissed off!

We are unhappy, overwhelmed, stressed, depressed and we are exhausted. Why?

Here is a quick audio that will explain what I have learned over the past 25 years working with teens and parents.

Let me know your thoughts.

One of the most amazing videos I have seen in a long while.

Your Life, Your Dreams = Your Echo

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

This is a great video for all, not just parents done by an inspiring women named Danielle LaPorte – called: A Credo for Making it Happen.

We all want to make it happen. We want our kids to make it happen… If you are a parent or someone who inspires children or teens please watch. If all of us lived our lives like this all of our children would be extraordinary and the entitlement issues would fade away. I know it sounds simple, but remember our children are our echo. We must be and behave in a way our kids can be proud of and understand.

Have vision and go for it. Teach your kids the same. Give them the permission to be great.

Watch this video with your family each morning. Chat about it. Create dreams and vision. Create your echo!
