Getting Kids Ready for Back to School

Thursday, August 19th, 2010


Where did the summer go?  School is starting in a couple of weeks.

Art Therapist Elissa Bowes has some great tips at about how to help your child get ready for the big first day.

For example, if your summer schedule is more relaxed than the school year schedule, start early adjusting to the bed times and wake up times for school.  Since I take the kids to the bus stop, I guess I better start getting up earlier too.

Country Songs We Wish We’d Written

Brad Paisley

And then all of a sudden
Oh, it seemed so strange to me
How we went from something’s missing
To a family
Lookin’ back all I can say
About all the things he did for me
Is I hope I’m at least half the dad
That he didn’t have to be.

Women for Fathers Rights

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

A comment on yesterday’s post sent me to a nicely designed blog called Women for Fathers Rights.  It is for a “wife, sister, mother, friend or any other woman looking to help a man in your life with his child custody and fathers’ rights issues.”

The blog plans to cover custody arrangements, tips and techniques to assist your man with his battle in the courtroom, and even common questions and answers that arise from being the woman in their lives battling for their rights to be a dad.

Here’s a quote from the blog: “A child with their father in their lives is the best possible outcome of any divorce.”

Please Tell My Daddy I Love Him

Monday, August 2nd, 2010


If you can’t obtain contact with your kids, I have suggested setting up a Facebook page and posting to it in hopes they will someday find it.

A father who goes by the name of Daddy Nmn sent me an email calling my attention to a website called “3 Sides to Every Story” where anyone, dads, moms, grandparents and others, can post letters to their missed loved ones.

The site is nicely done and categorized by state and type of letter writer.  The letters are heart-felt, honest and poignant.
