Preventing Teen Drug Abuse: 5 Tips for Parents When your teen was young, it was probably easier to talk to them. Kids naturally look up to their parents and absorb what they teach — but they get more skeptical as they get older. It’s good for teens to develop their own thoughts and opinions as they grow up, even if it makes it hard to talk about certain things. As teenagers enter junior high and high school, they’ll meet new people who will influence their personal growth. Young adults commonly experiment together with things like hairstyles, clothing and especially drugs. It’s always been common for teenagers to do drugs together, but sometimes this ends in addiction. Parents can read about these five tips that will help you talk with your kids about preventing teen drug abuse. With the right approach, understanding and conversational guidance, your teen will know how to navigate their lives in a healthy, responsible way. 1. Understand Their Motivation Adults know there’s more to life than grades and getting into college. They have more responsibilities and more to lose if things go wrong. Teens only plan for the next year or two down the road, if they have…

Do you enjoy Mardi Gras? Check out this post:
2020 Spring Gift Guide / February 20, 2020

Mardi Gras marks the end of Carnival season. The Carnival season begins on January 6th, the Epiphany and lasts until the day before Ash Wednesday. In French, Mardi Gras means “Fat Tuesday.” The day represents the last hurrah of sorts leading up to the start of Lent, the 40 days of fasting before Easter. Pope Gregory XIII made Mardi Gras a holiday in 1582 by adding it to his Gregorian calendar the day before Ash Wednesday. The LeMoyne brothers brought the holiday to North America in the late 17th century. Mardi Gras is celebrated around the world. In Ireland, England, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, it is also known as “Pancake Day.” The holiday is celebrated by eating pancakes and participating in pancake-themed activities. The first Mardi Gras celebrations took place in Mobile, Alabama in 1703. The city hosts the second largest party after New Orleans. The first Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans took place in 1837. It wasn’t until 1857 that floats appeared in the parade. If you’re going to ride on a float in the Mardi Gras parade, you’re required by law to wear a mask. The tradition of wearing a mask started to rid society of…

Welch’s Valentine’s Day Fruit Snacks for Treat Exchange
2020 Valentine's Day Gift Guide / February 11, 2020

I love Welch’s Fruit Snacks, and I found them for a treat exchange that my son is having with his 3rd grade class.  We usually send Fruit Snacks to all the parties, but this time it’s different, I didn’t know that they had them specifically for Valentine’s Day.  There’s a to:/from: on each package.  And, they have the same fruit flavor. I found a 28 count box of Welch’s Valentine’s Fruit Snacks, at Target.  The price was under $5.  You can’t beat that.  And, the shapes are cute hearts with emoji faces.  They are so cute! What a great treat to hand out to any class.  I know the kids always love when I send in these amazing Welch’s Fruit Snacks, for every holiday.  I addressed each envelope to the kids in Jacob’s class, then the extras are always sent in, incase any one wants seconds. The teacher probably gets sick of seeing Welch’s Fruit Snacks all the time, because I send them in any time we go to Walmart.  They are a healthy snack, and the kids can eat a pouch of them.  Going home with a half full belly.
