Helping today’s parents improve their relationships, feel better about themselves and raise happy, health kids.

Motherhood: Good behavior is EXPECTED, don't reward it!

It's hard to be the cool mom and still discipline your kids. Joanie gives Mary some Old School lessons that may help her out!

Is It Better to be the Cool Mom or the Old School Mom?

    I want to be a good mix between the two. I want my kids and their friends to have fun with me, but I also want them to understand that there are rules and there are punishments when those rules are broken.
