What to do when your kids won't let you in?

Everyday kids are put in situations some they are able to handle and others they are not ready to handle. As parents we try to be there for our children but what do you do when they don't let you into their world. I try talking to my children everyday to see what is going on in their lives and at times I notice that they are hesitant to open up so instead of hounding them about what is wrong I switch it to why it is important to share their feelings with a loved one. Example: I had a friend whose daughter was sneaking around with boys but nobody knew who these boys were or where they lived so when I spoke to her I didn't yell or force her for answers I simply told her that "we all loved her and wanted what is best for her and that if one of those boys ever did anything to hurt her we need to know who to go after" and she was like I never thought about that. See they want to be grow ups but they don't think of the total situation they only think about getting what they want when they want it and part of being an adult is having to take other peoples feelings into consideration, understanding that your actions do affect others, and last but not least learning responsibility. I pray that we as parents can continue to form a bond with our children so that they feel comfortable telling us whatever they may be going through, and I pray that our children learn to stop treating us like outsiders because it would make their lives a little easier if they understand all we want is what is best for them.

Eating Healthy

It is so easy to eat the things we crave especially when it is sweet. When you decide to change your bad eating habits it takes a lot of self-control. It's hard not to give in to the temptation of wanting sweets. So I wanted to list a few things that are a good snack that you can try remember you can add your own little twist to make it to your liking. REMEMBER reading labels is key to knowing what is healthier for you and your family.


-Dried Apricots

-Blueberries (Fresh is best)

-Strawberries (Fresh is best)

-Salad (Fresh is best add any fresh fruits or veggies & remember dressing amount will determine how healthy your salad will be so be careful when pouring on the dressing)

-Yogurt (Remember Fat Free or Light is best)

-Steamed Asparagus (Fresh is best)

-Steamed Broccoli (Fresh is best)

-Steamed Squash or Zucchini (Fresh is best)

-Low fat or Sugar Free Ice Cream (Portion sizes are important part of eating healthy)

-DRINK PLENTY OF WATER (Mineral water is best ex. Fuji)

TIP: Remember eating more with portion & sugar control is way healthier than skipping meals!

Thank You for LIVING HEALTHIER with SunShyne B.

The New Year has arrived and people are making all kind of resolutions and I have heard them all except "I WILL TRY TO BE KINDER TO PEOPLE, I WILL LEND A HELPING HAND WITHOUT EXPECTING SOMETHING IN RETURN, and last but not least I WILL LEARN TO HAVE FAITH!!!!! These are the most important values we can add to our everyday lives that will have a everlasting affect, yet nobody ever vows to change their selfish ways in the NEW YEAR with that being said the same ignorant things that happened last year will continue into this year....soooo sad!
