Are your #tweens looking for ways to earn money? Try these three tips. | thissweetlifeofmine.com

From the time my kids are big enough to pitch in and do chores, they start receiving an allowance. It’s not a large amount of money, but it does give them a sense of responsibility when it’s pay day. When they start earning their own money, we start cutting back on the “extras” that we [...]

Are parents too overprotective? Is helicopter parenting hurting our kids? | thissweetlifeofmine.com

I’ll say it. I think today’s children are largely over-protected. Mine are not excluded from that generalization. We use hand sanitizers to ward off germs, but germs help our bodies fight infection.

History has never been my favorite subject to learn or to teach. However, I try hard to make it fun for Emma. And, honestly, I’m learning to enjoy it a little more as I go through it with her this year. This year, Em and I are studying American History, and we recently finished our [...]

Tweens and Make-Up | thissweetlifeofmine.com

Tweens and makeup. The combination is inevitable. How will you handle it when you tween begins asking to wear makeup like her friends? Is it off-limits? Or, will you slowly teach her to wear makeup modestly and age-appropriately?  Even though Emma is only 11, this is a conversation we have had in our house for [...]
