Parents talk and kids talk

I’m not sure how many times I written about how KD, my 10-year-old son, and I bang heads. This happens for umpteen reasons and I’ve gotten tired of it. KD goes to a school that prides itself on being peaceful, and if there’s a conflict, the kids go to a peace table and have “peace…

BULLYING: more help for parents

BULLYING Years ago, I got pulled into a new friend group of dudes. It was the best! I was sort of new to town and was lonely. I loved being included. My awful feelings drifted away. I was also pretty new to Facebook, and one day I saw pictures of all the dudes with their…

March Madness Madness

IT’S TIME FOR MARCH MADNESS! In KD’s basketball game the other day he should have passed the ball a bit more. One time down the court he forced a shot and it was an air ball. I was in the stands right in front of him and he said, “Carmelo.” We both giggled, and he…

He does, she does, everyone PROCRASTINATES!!!

I’m doing it as I write.  I should be doing things that are more important than this.  Yet, here I am writing my blog.  I believe I’m procrastinating.  I think everyone procrastinates.  And since it’s the beginning of the school year, I figured it’s time to revisit why our kids do it. About 95% of…

Thank god! We lost it in troubled waters-River City Counseling

When I got my first cell phone, my wife complained because I wouldn’t pick up or return calls. It wasn’t anything personal; most of the time I accidentally left it at home. It was more of an annoyance that anything else. Years later, we got rid of our landline, and it became the only way…

Really! Not this again

I want to thank those of you who have subscribed to my blog recently. To catch-you-up, many of my blogs revolve around the highs and lows, joys and challenges for my wife and me parenting our 8-year-old boy, KD. He is an only child who loves sports, and I’m his main playmate. He’s kind, sweet,…

Clayton Kershaw Throws Heat

If you’ve been following my blog, you know KD and I have been banging heads these days.  Not all the time, but enough that it’s wearing on me.  Lots of factors are involved, and I know I’m a big part of the problem. I’m the adult and I should act like one, but it gets…

Holes already? I just bought them.

As many of you know, my son KD, age 7, loves to follow and play sports 24-7. It’s summer, so right now he lives and breathes baseball. He’s either outside playing in real-time or inside practicing hitting stances and making tough plays with the game playing on the radio in the background. As kids do,…
