Thanks Seleach and A.I.O. for the updates...

In this weeks News letter: Forums Newsletter: 2/08/13, we were greeted with an exceptional article " ARTICLE PICK OF THE WEEK
Parenting the Argumentative Child - by Dr. Caron B. Goode." I say exceptional for the sheer fact that this article isn't aimed at just the parents / guardians of children with behaviors commonly associated with stubbornness, but an aid for any adult dealing with children who prefer to not follow the rules or to push the borderlines as often as possible. I found the article quiet exhilarating for the fact that many of my family and friends have chosen to explain to me how it is not an adults decision to give a child an ultimatum regarding their choice(s) upon general activities - especially those of cleaning up their own rooms within x-amount of hours before losing items not put away by the child, same can be said for teacher's /aides in schools where the class has limited time to clean-up after an activity in which everyone is required to pick-up the item(s) that they used during that time frame or lose the use of that item or area next time. Children are always asking questions, and need to have boundaries to push... Something many hands-off parents, guardians, and teachers forget, and it does harm the children later in life - no boundaries can lead to reckless lifestyles. Finding the balance between too many and not enough is the key.

Coodo's to all the winners - I read so many!!

Grats to Amanda for "Pintrest" inquiry... looks like your interest is growing (4 pages worth of communications)!!

The book of the month club is coming along nicely, read a few synopsis that caught my attention - hopefully before the year is out I will have my own synopsis and have read at least one of theses themed books!

Off to play some of the games from the newsletter!

Happy February everyone!!
