3 Things You Could Do Better as a Parent

It’s normal to question yourself when you’re a parent, especially a good parent. Your kiddo goes to sleep, and you spend a few hours wondering what you could have done differently to make them feel loved and satisfied throughout their day. However, the truth is, you probably did everything right, and they went to bed feeling happy, healthy, and well-loved. But, with all kinds of parenting, there is still room for improvement. So, here are a few things you do better to help your kid grow up to be a well-rounded adult.

Regularly Do Fun Stuff with Your Kids

Kids remember the moments that made them feel special and love, as much as they remember the moments that made them feel sad and hurt. To give them those good memories, do fun stuff with your kids on a regular basis. Go to the parks every week, head to zoo, aquarium, or amusement parks, get your kids involved into the community—you know, fun stuff that makes lasting memories.

Lead Parenting with Kindness, Compassion, and Positive Perspective

The most common mistake that a parent makes is losing their temper too quickly. This teaches kiddos to be quick to anger and scared of consequences, so lead your parenting with kindness, compassion, and positive perspective. Sure, there are situations that call for getting genuinely upset, but the proverbial “spilled milk” situations can be handled better without yelling or corporal punishments.

Commit to Something Memorable as a Bonding Experience

Traditions can be a huge bonding experience for families with children. For instance, the Elf on the Shelf, while hated by parents everywhere, is a good kid-oriented tradition. However, there are more memorable, less annoying experiences that you can file under “fun family things to do together.” For example, you could make it a habit to go on a picnic on the first day of springtime. Or, perhaps your family of sports lovers would enjoy a tour of the best golf courses in North Carolina. Or, you could make it a tradition to build a snowman, regardless of size and shape, from the first year’s snowfall. Little things like this make the most memorable differences.

The way you speak to your child, and the things you do with them, will have the most impact on who they grow up to be. With that said, you’re doing a great job, so keep up the good work.

All My Blogs Are Up!

It has been almost two weeks that 6 of my blogs are nowhere to be found. I am losing my patience it is because I miss them so much. Good thing that my host provider was able to transfer all my posts under her host, even though I only gave her the files. And good thing I was able to back up my themes oh well except for Mary Anne’s Musings though, I think I got the theme for free, the reason why I wasn’t able to back it up. So My Little Home, Anne’s Sweet Life and Points of View of Travels and Places are all live now. I didn’t post anything new yet since I am adding some plug ins for those blogs. So there, they are now back in business!

2 Blogs Are Up! Thank GOD!

My two main blogs are up, this one My Daily Mumbles and Sahm’s Dining Diary. I woke up with a message in my messenger at 5 in the morning, an update regarding the blogs that went down for a week already. I was relieved when finally I can see them live but I was so worried because when I opened my blogs, my theme was gone and said there is no way that we can add it, the only thing that my host was able to retrieved is the posts.

I nearly contacted the one who created my theme, it has been a while that I wasn’t able to message her but we are still friends in FB. I am about to message her asking if she still have a copy for the theme when I realized to scan my email first and there I saw the backup copy of the theme for these two blogs. Thank GOD, I could not contain my happiness when I saw all the zip files of my theme. I installed it right away to my blogs.

I already have xml files for the following blogs:

My Little Home

Mary Anne’s Musings

Anne’s Sweet Life

Points of View of Travels and Places

I already contacted the host that I will be transferring these blogs to; hopefully she will reply the soonest possible time so I can work these things out before I will go to work tomorrow.

Updating My Resume

I am updating my resume right now; I will be submitting it to our HR office for a position in the office. I am crossing my fingers that I will be accepted. This kind of position does not require taking calls although I believe there are only numbers of calls that you will be taking every month but it’s not full time because you will also going to perform your task for that position. I will not be disclosing it now but I will soon after the interview. I heard the interview will be tonight and I am getting nervous already. Oh well, if I will not be accepted, it is okay though, at least I experience being interviewed for a higher position. If in case I will not be accepted, at least I know what to do next time. But I am hoping and praying that they will accept for that position, it’s not that I am not enjoying taking calls anymore but I wanted to step forward, I’d been here on this field for quiet sometime now and with my age I want to try to move forward and be the best that I can be. I hope they will accept me.
