First, I would ask direct questions to clarify their fear. I would then start with how they are transported to school and move through their school day to determine where their fears lie. It ...

Helpful Heather’s Cool as a Cucumber!

Lemon water

Cool as a Cucumber There are a couple of things I have noticed lately. The first is that although my family loves cucumbers, they are coming out of our garden at a faster rate than we can eat them in salads, scooped out with peanut butter in the middle as a snack, or even as the occasional beauty treatment for puffy eyes. The next thing that I have noticed is that even though it is hot out, I have not been overly good at drinking all the water that I should in a day. Enter my first tip. Cut the ...

Are Parents Over Praising Their Children?

I figured that sugarless gum would be a great reinforcer for going potty on the toilet. It is better than candy, cheap and easy to transport. The problem? Now my son will run in and try to go potty even if he doesn't have to go in order to get gum. While the gum was initially an incentive, it has now become the focus. I have started ...
