It occurred to me that I mostly write about the struggles and challenges my daughter with ADHD faces and that is just not fair. I think parents of ADHDers can all agree that while having ADHD can make life more difficult and stressful for both our children and ourselves at times, it also provides our children with a lot of amazing qualities. These qualities are going to allow our children to go far in life and become very successful. Many people with ADHD grow up to be entrepreneurs, inventors, and trend-setters. Very important and famous...

The San Francisco Unified School Board is proposing to give middle school students access to free condoms. Not only that, state law would allow these middle schoolers to get condoms without their parent’s permission. Many parents are opposed to this and I am one of them.

McDonalds is giving away books instead of toys in their Happy Meals through February 15th.  They are Valentine’s...

Happy Friends Day! Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be friends with celebrities?  I have!  Actually, I have a group of them already picked our in my head.  Just like men pick out football players in Fantasy Football, I pick out celebrities in what I call Fantasy Friendships.  Here’s who I’d pick to be my BFFs and why: Ellen DeGeneres – 58 year old comedian and actress.  Is she really that old?  She definitely doesn’t look it or act like it.  Hands down, Ellen is my absolute favorite...
