To always remember it's not what you say, it's what you do that children pay attention to.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

Spend time with them, listen to what they say and how they feel. Be honest with them. Limit TV time and select what they watch and also video games.

You can give them too much of anything and everything...BUT you can NEVER give them too much love.


"A daughter holds your hand for only a short while...but she holds your heart forever."

Everyone is running around trying to get out the door, but on the way to drop my daughter off the HS I always try to get a smile out of her with a joke, something on the radio, I sing of key, whatever it take. Sometimes I’m not up for it and it still needs to be done
