Everybody has a little different idea of what their perfect family life looks like. Some people want the big house, expensive cars over having a large family.

We all want to be healthy. That’s a very reasonable desire too! When we feel good, we have better relationships, work better and play more.Read More

There are a few things that are universal for all humans. We all need food and water. We all need some form of shelter. We all want to be loved. We all want to be happy. I know that we have all met those people who it’s hard to believe that are looking for happiness or that they get pleasure from anything other than making themselves, or others, miserable, but those people, too, want to be happy.
At the end of the day, when we are being honest with ourselves and others, sometimes feeling happy or thinking positive can be hard. Our American culture, that demands so much from us, doesn’t leave much time for taking care of your physical health, let alone on your mental health.

As parents, we know the importance of making sure our children are given a healthy diet consisting of plenty of vegetables, fruits, and proteins. We know the importance of teaching our children good activity habits and how to be active in order to take care of our bodies. But one very important health aspect that unfortunately some parents are not as aware of is the importance of quality sleep for our little ones. Healthy nighttime and daytime sleep is just as important for our children as eating, playing, and teaching appropriate behavior. As a Certified Sleep Consultant, I get to experience the joy of watching children with poor sleep habits transform into SuperStar Sleepers every day once they are given the proper tools and guidance. I truly believe that any child can be taught to sleep well, and the difference good sleep makes on a child as well as the rest of the family can be life changing!Read More

You may feel you are ready to get the last bit of this pregnancy moving along, only to get the heartbreaking news that your baby is in a breech position.

That’s the question many parents are asking… There’s no doubt that a little bit of time watching TV, working on a computer, playing video games or using a tablet or smartphone can be useful. However, it’s also become increasingly clear that long, uninterrupted periods of screen time can cause real problems.Read More
