MY FIRST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE EXPERIENCE.

MY FIRST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE EXPERIENCE. I went out for dinner with my friends . While we were eating dinner, a girl ran inside and rushed to hide somewhere. Few seconds later, a guy ran inside screaming . With fear, the girl came out of her hiding place. The guy gave her a sounding slap in the face, pushed her to the ground, and grabbed her keys and phone from her. Mind you, there were kids inside the restaurant with their parents. Everything happened so fast. None of us called 911 because it happened so quick with shock. It was like…

KIDS AND THE USE OF PROFANITIES.

Kids are very familiar with the use of profanities as early as age 7. Surprised?? Every home is different and unique. We all have different parenting styles. That’s why it is almost impossible to guard your kids from hearing bad words outside. I told my kids to always come to me or dad whenever they hear their peers use words they don’t understand. We tell them to pretend like they understand. When they come home, ask mommy or daddy. We will never judge them but coach them with love instead. The reason we tell them that ,is so they don’t…

Use This Easy Trick To Make Your Kids Tidy Up Fast Like A pro.

I used to wonder how some parents kept their house so spotless. I told my kids I love dirt these days, with a smirk on my face, they were shocked.

When you tell them eat fast, that is the time they turn to a snail. And this is supposed to be the time…
