How Often Should You Wash Your Hair?

How often do you wash your hair? Ziana came home from school the other day stating some teacher told her to wash her hair everyday.

Tips for Teaching Kids Responsibilities

Tips for Teaching Kids Responsibilities I often get asked on tips for teaching kids responsibilities and people wonder how my kids are so responsible for their age and wowed with how much they do on their own.

Potty Training Boys

They never said potty training boys would be easy, and I thought I would be one of the lucky ones who would be done with it in just a matter of 3 days. I mean, come on, Ziana took about a week, but then again she is a girl. Apparently, boys take longer to train- go figure! When I potty trained Ziana it was only her, her and I, a…
