Oh, this photo is absolutely Frankenstein-esque! I halfway expect Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Cloris Leachman, Teri Garr and Peter Boyle to show up.
Anyway, here are some of the fun things we talked about on the show...you've heard the serious stuff. If you haven't, check out the podcasts on DrClaudia.net.
Yes, you can have fairy lights in your beard this holiday season. You've always wanted them and now, they're here. I found the website called Beard Baubles and it's, well, interesting, to say the least. The facial hair is not included.
There's something for everyone in this world of ours.
Dyson has a full line of functioning vacuum cleaners for your little helper. You know that the earlier you teach your little one to help, the more willing they will be to give you a hand as they get older!
Are you overdoing it with the Christmas decorations?
Know what you like, but don't know how to recreate it?
Lots of suggestions in this article. I think I'm gonna buy the book. I need help and don't have time for costly mistakes. Ugh.
For my weekly segment on KSUE, I was asked about the reasons for parents not disciplining their children anymore. They are coming to school at younger and younger ages without having basic social skills. They use up a LOT of teacher time and disrupt other students.
It was my experience over the course of 24 years in private practice that parents were overly concerned about hurting their little darlings' feelings if they denied them ANYTHING! I know, I couldn't believe it myself.
Once I explained that their fears will push kids into sociopathic behavior, that really got their attention.
I also asked them to anticipate how they will feel standing in a courtroom when the judge sentences their now-young adult kids to jail time because they didn't take the time to socialize them, teach them values and a moral code.
By not disciplining them (discipline=disciple=teaching), you leave them to figure it out for themselves.
Your failure as a parent, and as your kid's first teacher, is not their fault, but society WILL make it their responsibility. You choose. It's all on you.
Try some of these ideas...most of the posts are short enough to enjoy
