This was sold to me as multigrain today. Really!? If your family regularly eat grainy/wholemeal breads/pastas....what strategies can you share with other parents who are keen to reduce how much white bread/pasta their crew eat?
If you're stuck on a concept, you can always phone a friend. (For those too young to know what this is - it's a pay phone. We used to call people on them.) #studytip #phoneafriend #ifeelold⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #tutor #tutoring #onlinetutoring #historytutor #tutoringservices #parentingteens #parentingtweens #stapletondenver #northfieldstapleton #denvertutor #smallbusiness #ladyboss #mompreneur #lptutoring

They fight all the time, and couldn’t be more opposite. They test my patience on a daily basis - why do they hate taking showers so much? Showers are amazing. Anyway, they used to keep me busy chasing after them before they climbed on a counter or took their dirty diaper off at naptime, but now they keep me busy with preteen emotions. Allllll the emotions. I’m certain that preteen girls cry more than toddlers. . They aren’t twins, but they get that all the time. Two years apart, and they’ve been together through every major shift in life. The night this was taken, they’d been arguing for hours. I heard Reagan (oldest) say, “I don’t care where I sleep as long as it’s nowhere near you.” . Came in a little while later, and they were in the same bed. Sleeping on the far edges like a fighting married couple, but there were 3 other available beds and they were still in the same one. Still sisters. Still like to stay together. ❤️ . I pray every day that I can take care of them, and that He will be with them every step of every day. . . . #soberholidays #soberliving #sober #soberaf #sobriety #sobermom #soberwomen #sobertogether #soberevolution #onedayatatime #odaat #recoveryjourney #recoveryisworthit #trusttheprocess #progressnotperfection #alcoholfree #forgiveness #serenity #gratitude #12steps #teetotaler #soberfun #momlife #parentingtweens #motherdaughter #motherhood #divorcedmom #sisterlove

This is genius. But also psychologically abusive… but I may not be completely opposed to it.😂 I've held constant through my parenting years that I don't threaten anything that I won't follow through with, so I would never threaten to actually throw away something that I purchased and I want my child to have, but what they don't don't know doesn't always hurt them, right? 🎁 Have you ever had a Christmas present withheld from you or from your child? When I was about 7 years old I discovered the strawberry shortcake doll house hidden in my mom's closet, and I never got it! It's still the running joke in my family to this day, because it stayed in a box in the garage for 20+ years. Then my girls played with it, mint condition. #capturingjoyquotes

This can be a tough time of year for everyone. The sun has disappeared, the stress of the holidays is approaching, and school is REAL serious for teens right now. (Especially seniors!)

If you haven't already watched the hilarious video on my Facebook page of these 4 kids singing and dancing to The Turkey Song, you need to! It's one of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions that we learned from my son's kindergarten teacher 10 years ago! 🦃 Your kids will enjoy watching the bloopers throughout the video, and I've got the free print on my site to help them learn it. (Sneak peek on my stories) 🦃 My boys aren't into the the theatrics as much, so my friend Shelley's boys were stand ins. Besides that, I made another video about 5 activities kids can do on Turkey Day, and it seems like the favorite is the Thanksgiving placement. You can print any of them from the link in my profile on the homepage of my site. 🦃 Have you heard the turkey song before? Are you entertaining kids on Thanksgiving day? You never know, adults may enjoy the song as well! #capturingjoywithkristenduke
MYTH BUSTING YOUTHS Does anyone else have a 9yr old child begging every min of the day to have you record Myth Buster experiments in slow-motion? Tonight this bottle of water was hurled 34 times off the back verandah before it broke open. It's counterpart...the 2ltr milk bottle ...split open first plunge to great jubulation. My son and his friend are in the revel-in-wrecking-stuff developmental stage. It is easy to default to "No" when our kids ask us to do such things, isn't it? So often it is out of my mouth before I even think it through. "Too messy" "Too late" "Too expensive" "Too silly" If we can find ways to scaffold them to learn what they are looking to, then it is just gold in terms of what they get learning-wise, and feeling confident and good about themselves. It doesn't mean the family rules need to go out the window....but hey...if, for example, time to time they stayed up a bit later testing something out and it taught them something, engaged them to want to learn more, and had them feeling trusted and competent....is it possibly worth the late night? We each get to decide. This post is to invite you to look at the bigger picture next time you feel yourself going to an automatic 'no'. (Be sure to send your fav slow-mos!)

Time to introduce myself to new followers! I am Louisa, an online tutor and former high school history teacher. I live in one of the most beautiful and rectangular of states - Colorado!

Always baking. #lovetobake #ohhi⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #tutor #tutoring #onlinetutoring #tutoringservices #historytutor #parentingteens #parentingtweens #stapletondenver #northfieldstapleton #denvertutor #smallbusiness #ladyboss #mompreneur #lptutoring
Our oldest daughter is 11 & over the last year she’s begun to notice that this world isn’t all good. It breaks my heart. 💔 I wish that I could protect her from the dark, evil, horrible things that happen. But I can’t put her in a bubble. 😔 • A couple of nights ago there were some young men attempting to break into cars in our neighborhood. 🚗 We know this because many of our neighbors have security cameras & saw them going from car to car & pulling the handles to see if they were unlocked. If they were unlocked they entered the cars & took things they wanted. Our neighbors then shared their videos on our neighborhood website. • Of course all of the kids are talking about this at school. Just like they have been talking about the mass shooting that happened in Las Vegas or any other terrible act that has happened recently. My daughter was pretty creeped out when she realized that strangers had probably pulled on our car door handles. ☹️ Then she said, “Why can’t the world just be good?” • I can imagine how scary this world must seem to her now that she is realizing it’s not all good. But I told her that there is still good in the world. I know there is! We have seen it in our life through the amazing people who have shown our family so much love & service during our darkest time. And I told her that it starts with each of us-if we want there to be more goodness then we need to BE THE GOOD & spread that out into the world. 🌎 We can give a little bit of our light to the darkness & it will help to brighten the world. 💡 • So my thoughts for today are: Be the good. Be kind. Show love. Spread joy. Let your light shine. Help make the world less scary. ☮️✌🏻❤️
To Every Tween and Teen Comparing yourself to others does you more harm than good. Today be proud of you. Be proud of every progress that you have made so far. Keep going and don't you give up.
