I started writing books about raising kids because I have pretty firm views about what parenting is all about. (My wife is a teacher who sees the good, the bad and the ugly results of parenting every day.) My books are short, quick and to the point. I don’t dwell on the existentialism of parenthood. I talk about the challenges, the hilarity, the ...read more

Time to Play’s Best gifts for Kids 2011

While it's always great to get your kids the toys at the top of their wish lists, I've always look for gifts that allow my kids and I to share an experience together. Whether it’s games, activities or sports toys, I always enjoy that time where I can play with my kids and we'd both enjoy sharing the experience. Toys have changed thro ...read more

Avoiding a 2 year old’s Tantrum

Our little girl occasionally pitches a loud and vigorous fit. Once she gets to a full tantrum, there’s not much to be done about it except let it run its course. We can sometimes stop the tantrum while it’s still ramping up and, sometimes, it’s a simple question that helps to bring the tantrum under control. When she’s ramping up, I will ...read more

Sweet Easter Toys

Easter is right around the corner, and you what that means: it’s time to visit the candy aisle for your kids. Gift-giving at Easter has become so popular, this is now the third largest purchasing holiday for children behind Christmas and Halloween. As a parent, I'm a believer of everything in moderation.

My wife and I have tried very hard to work with our daughter regarding sharing. Somehow, though, despite our best efforts and our going out of our way to never use this word, her new favorite word has lately become, “MINE!” We truly don’t know where she learned the concept of mine or even the word, but she has grabbed hold of it and is refusi ...read more

Call their bluffs

Our daughter has several mostly self-appointed jobs around the house from feeding the dog and putting her toys away to turning on lights in the hall as we walk through. She has other smaller responsibilities like giving my wife and I kisses bye-bye or for “night-nights.”  Lately, she occasionally finds herself in a particularly foul or ...read more

Tag teaming

No matter what words of wisdom come from me or anyone else you receive advice from, two-year-olds will sometimes scream despite our best efforts to stop it. This is a fact. As parents, we simply have to figure out how to deal with it. In our case, I’m finding my daughter’s most significant impossible-to-control melt-downs seem to be due not ...read more

A little choice goes a long way

It should come as no surprise to anyone that a primary source for the overall terribleness of the Terrible Twos is that this is the time a child first starts to exercise his independence. He’s coming out of a time where he was totally immobile and depending on his parents for absolutely everything, then somewhat mobile but unsure on his feet. Now ...read more
