We just attended a great talk by Karyn Buxman! She wrote the book called “Lead with Laughter“.  During the talk she invited the entire audience to laugh hysterically for 2 minutes straight; then she described all the health benefits we just received.  We knew we liked laughing but now we know we cannot live without it!… Read More >

…that laughter is a barometer for your relationship! Sometimes life gets way too serious.  Yesterday we were laughing and joking a lot!  It was so life giving and refreshing.  Stress disappeared and we had fun!  How is your laughter barometer?

We have been told that we can’t do anything about the past, Worry about the future is silly because it’s not here yet. What we can do something about is this moment, here and now.

Putting negative labels on kids is one of the worse things you can do.  If you want a kid to be lazy, just keep saying, “You’re so lazy”.  If you want a kid to be stupid, just keep saying, “you’re so stupid”.  It can even be more subtle like, “he/she is good in sports but… Read More >

We really started to enjoy parenting when we learned the “game” of the belonging tank.  Imagine that each of your children has a tank like a gas tank, but it is called the belonging tank.  As long as that tank is full, your child is in full cooperation and your life is smooth sailing.
