My Sinchew/ Family

Balancing responsibilities with my children’s need for time with me

It seems like there aren't enough hours in the day to do all that needs to be done. What with working and maintaining a household it's difficult to spend quality time with my children. What do you think I should do?

Children health and well-being

Should a parent try to force a child to eat?

I made a little off-handed comment about my daughter’s hair

I made a little off-handed comment the other day about my daughter’s hair, and she cried for an hour. I didn’t mean to hurt her. I guess she’s just more sensitive than I thought. Do I have to walk on eggshells around her?

Too tired to get lazy teens do homework

My teens are lazy, and I'm too tired to make them do their homework or chores.

Making positive family memories

I've heard a lot about the importance of making positive family memories. The way this idea is phrased –"making memories" — indicates that there's a considerable amount of intentional effort involved. What do I need to do in order to set this process in motion?

Disciplining children without error

Anger often becomes a tool used for the purpose of influencing behavior. It is ineffective and can be damaging to the relationship between generations.

Testing my limits

My little boy always wants to know just how far I will let him go. Once he has tested me and found I’m serious about what I say, he’ll usually cooperate at that point. What is going on in his mind?

Differing approach to discipline

Sometimes my husband and I disagree on our discipline and argue in front of our children about what is best. Do you think this is damaging?

Getting your daughter through Adolescent River

My 16-year-old daughter is driving me crazy. She is sassy, noisy, and selfish. Her room looks like a pigpen, and she won't work any harder in school than absolutely necessary to get by. Everything I taught her, from manners to faith, seems to have sailed through her ears. What in the world do my husband and I do now?

Keeping my lazy teen on track

My thirteen-year-old daughter has become increasingly lazy in the past couple of years. She lies around the house and will sleep half a day on Saturday. She complains about being tired a lot. Is this typical of early adolescence? How should I deal with it?
