Behavior and Classroom Management for Parents and Teachers

Behavior and Classroom Management for Parents and Teachers

  Behavior and Classroom Management One of the most frustrating tasks charged to parents and teachers alike, is the task of getting children to behave.  We’ve all seen (or been) the frustrated and embarrassed parent of a child throwing a temper tantrum in the grocery store.  Most of us have experienced (if not from the point of view of the teacher, then from that of the student) the chaos of a classroom full of out-of-control students. While the rules, rewards…

Silk Plants

Beautiful Silk Plants from Commercial Silk Int’l

Silk Plants I’ve always loved to garden and be outdoors.  Over the years I’ve had a few impressive gardens and some pretty spectacular (for me anyway) harvests.  But until recent years, my houseplants never reflected my green thumb.  I often forgot to water them and finding time to repot them was nearly impossible.  I spent many years, while my children were young and life was even more hectic, feeling stressed and ashamed every time I’d look at my scraggly, parched…

Never Lose Your Keys Again

Never Lose Your Keys Again!

Never Lose Your Keys Again! Do you lose your keys a lot?  I do!  But I know how you can never lose your keys again!! Back in November 2017, shortly after my husband of  30 years had left me for the second time, I had a rather harrowing day of losing my keys.  I was dealing with enough problems and that just put my stress level over the top!  I tried to keep my attitude as positive as possible but…

Love Yourself

First Things First, Love Yourself!

First Things First, Love Yourself! A guest post by Flora Porterfield of PaperCheap | Paper Writing Company The thing is, people always seek acknowledgment and when they fail to get it, they sometimes stop giving their best. The self-satisfaction of being told that you did a good job is worth the effort. But what happens if people don’t notice you? What happens if people don’t appreciate what you do? Do you just quit your hopes for the future? Well, certainly not….
