Blowing you top

Bratty tweens can make you blow your top, so take a break, and have fun learning what you might do differently

This is a light-hearted look at parenting for you moms and dads struggling with bratty tweens and young grade-schoolers. It helps with bringing up youngsters in today's complex world of marketing hype, peer pressure and behavioural issues.

I often use the analogy of writing short stories to show you how to focus a child's attention and efforts, and that's why the site is called Short Stories Help Children.

I'll pass along many common sense views on parenting. My idea is that many parents may not be able to see the forest for the trees, and have been led to believe that today's 'accepted parenting techniques' will stand the test of time.

One concerned parent had this to say about her experience:

"As a homeschooling mom, working as a summer camp riding program director and later operating a fledgling drop in youth center, I've spent tons of time following rabbit trails of links on the web looking for inspiration as well as effective 'management techniques' ...

Your site has to be the richest resource I've come across, ever. Keep up the good work."
