Family Life

Your child is an integral part of your family now and can participate more and more in daily family activities. These videos will hopefully give you Moms out there some ideas on how to spend some quality family time with your SO and the kiddies. During the summer months, I really look forward to spending my time at the pool or in the park with my kids. Just remember sun safety for children! Kids can also help you decorate for the holidays, participate in their household chores, and prepare some kid-friendly arts and crafts for any occasion, so as to get more involved in family life! From getting your kids involved in family dinners to reading at mealtime with your kids and lots in between, I share my tried and true tricks to a happy family life!
