Raising a child at any age is challenging, and when it comes to mothers and daughters, the dynamic can be even more complex. What some may dismiss as “typical tween girl behavior” can sometimes be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention- Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.

My kids are ALWAYS wanting to use my phone, and when they do, I am surprised at how well they know how to operate it! I’m sure it won’t be long before my oldest will be asking for her own phone (she’s 8!) When that day comes, I sure there will be concern (on my part) about limiting usage of her phone. The team at Zact conducted a survey, and did you know that 73% of U.S. parents are concerned about the lack of parental control of a child’s activities on mobile devices?

When it comes to dishes, I have to say I am pretty picky on how clean they are. I mean, everyone wants clean dishes, but I don’t even want to see one spot on my dishes. I’ve tried so many different types of dishwasher detergent and “pacs”, but have never really found one that really did the job. It can really be aggravating to try so many things and not be 100% satisfied. There were some that were okay. Those were usually the ones that cleaned my dishes, but still left spots. No. Can. Do. Due to the dissatisfaction, I was beginning to hand wash a lot of my dishes. 😐
I love Christmas time! There are so many different recipes and crafts that my girls and I love to do. I, however am one of those moms….that no matter how I try to be relaxed, I do get a little frazzled about the mess being made. I try to let it go and tell myself it can all be cleaned up….no biggie! 😉
For example, my girls and I just got finished making salt dough and cutting out shapes for ornaments. It was a lot of fun, yet it can get messy. Flour everywhere (because little hands like to play with it), and cookie cutters strewn about. I didn’t let it bother me too much, because we are making memories and having fun. PLUS–we have a container of wipes like Wet Ones nearby so that my counter tops and little hands can get cleaned up in a jiffy!
