Are you planning a fun road trip with your family but feeling a little nervous about the long car ride with little children? Are you looking to minimize tablet screen time? Well, don’t worry! After having done several long trips with my young children (both alone and with my husband), I have some great options that will help keep your little ones occupied.  TLDR: You’re a mom and very busy, so if you do not have time to read this article, go and order the LCD sketch screens and a bunch of water coloring books from Amazon right now. If you need to add another item to get the same-day delivery, throw a busy board in your cart.  Different activities such as sensory toys, reusable stickers, and dry-erase boards are the best travel toys. I also love magnetic puzzles, busy books, and any small, manageable, mess-free activity. Sometimes, even a roll of blue painter’s tape and…

Child development, which we refer to as the biological, psychological, and emotional changes that occur in the life span of every person from birth to the end of adolescence. Its main aspects include physical growth, social and emotional advancements, cognitive development, language acquisition,  and identity and personality establishment.

I am a parent molded from each great book I read about parenting. Raising kids can be a hard time but there are an infinite number of reasons to make it fulfilling. For every parent who undergoes day-to-day struggles in parenting, here are the best books to be a better parent.

As a parent to younger children, do you ever find yourself needing a little bit of quiet time to finish a project or meet a deadline for work but it’s a Saturday morning at home? Maybe you have a 5-year-old that you would like to find some fun independent activities for them to enjoy during solitary play times. We have created a list of our favorite independent activities that help with a child’s development and in becoming independent learners.  During school days, young children are spending time learning and socializing in the classroom. However, during the evenings and weekends, it is hard to watch a young age child strobe out of the house participating in sports or other activities with friends while parents are sometimes consumed with adult responsibilities, even if it’s just taking a break for their mental health. Therefore, raising self-sufficient kids is a benefit to both young…

The Christmas season is now truly approaching. We faintly hear the caroling of the younger kids down the street, drop the candy canes inside the socks that are placed near the chimney, and see the colorful Christmas tree that is the actual representation of the holiday spirit. Nowadays, Christmas decorations can be made in a fun way as DIY projects. Projects where you can grab a pair of scissors, and a sheet of construction paper to create your own Christmas decor linked by the hot glue with the help of the little hands. To be honest, my children are more interested in edible crafts which is a better way to celebrate the Christmas Holidays. The quality time from this is one of the most rewarding ideas ever. Easy edible Christmas crafts are a great way to celebrate the holiday season. With the perfect yummy supplies, the most wonderful time of…

There’s nothing more blissful than the holiday season. That is, as long as you live in the Hallmark movie universe. In real life, spending the holidays with kids and extended family can be stressful, overwhelming, exhausting, and, in some cases, even traumatizing. Based on the most recent data, it’s easy to conclude that a significant portion of people are not looking forward to Christmas this year. According to Statista, 18% of UK adults agree that Christmas is pure stress. 39% feel like there are too many expectations linked to Christmas. And 5% say their family always fights over the holidays. A survey from the APA conducted in November 2022 discovered that 31% of adults (and 39% of parents) expect to feel more stressed this holiday season, mainly due to the inability to afford holiday gifts and meals. Do you already know that the holiday season tends to be stressful in…

Let’s get one thing straight…. Your young kids do not care about how cool your car is, how much money you make, what you do for a living, that big sale you made, planning the kitchen remodel, or making the grocery list……these adult topics mean nothing to your kids whether they are little or older.  They have one thing in common, they just want to spend time with YOU! Your time is now, and it is already beginning to dwindle. Think about it.  Between all the millions of things you have to do as a mother, wife, cleaner, friend, organizer, chef, volunteer, advisor, and teacher….  spending time with your family members ranks extremely high on your list and even higher on your children’s list. A great thing and easy activity to schedule is a family fun activity or a family night activity. “But…..  I am so busy and just trying…

One of the things I held on to for a long time was making my kid’s birthday cakes myself. I try to make whatever we have at home for their actual birthday and in the past, I used to make some of their party cakes too. Caveat – I am not a professional baker, not even by a long shot. But, I was determined and a few of these came out pretty awesome so I thought I would share them here. The good news is you can make something special that doesn’t take a lot of skills, you can use a boxed cake mix and store-bought frosting if you want, no shame from me! (I know some of you are cringing right now, and that’s okay, make homemade if you are up for it, but I’m just pointing out you don’t HAVE to!) Just remember the secret ingredients in these…

Mother’s Day is around the corner but this list of faves is great for a holiday gift, birthday, or any special occasion.
