Geez where oh where did the time go? That's all I hear. Well I'll tell you where the time went! To cooking, cleaning, nurturing, bathing, studying, preparing and to everything else that consumes us daily. Hopefully during all this time we were great role models for our children. That to me is the most important of them all. I hope I displayed a great picture of what a wife, mother, friend and daughter should be like. I know in the daughter arena there's still a lot of room for growth. Anyway let's see what today brings.

- Decide when you are going to start (I think weekends are best)
- 1 to 2 weeks before start talking with your child about it, prepare them
- Do not let your emotions get in the way, stick to the plan
- Each and every time he/she drinks from a cup praise them, make a big deal out of it!

Rather than putting your child on time out every time you witness bad behavior, reward them each and every time they are doing good. Ex: little rewards like a coin and every time they reach $2 take them for ice cram on Friday or something similar

A childs mind is like a sponge. Think about this each time you expose your child to anything, ask yourself is this something I want them to remember, retain or learn from. If it's something negative that you had no control over use it as a teaching tool. " Mommy doesn't like that, that was not okay....." Then explain why it was not okay.
