Nature’s Multivitamin

Nature's Multivitamin There was this commercial on TV when I was growing up that had this silly little jingle: "the incredible, edible egg".

The “When —> Then” Principle

The “When —> Then” Principle Everyone wants a magic formula to get their child to do what they are told but we all know that is easier said than done. You might be trying to get everyone into the car and buckled in to get to soccer practice, you might be trying to get some help to tidy up the toys or you might simply be trying to get your child to eat what you’ve made for dinner. I can’t take credit for this little gem. Before Mia was [...]
