      Saw one of you videos on Vimeo the other day, im glad i found the real site. That advice was actually briliant.Why didn’t i think of that.. We have 3 kids and everyday chances are that one of them is going to be moody. I’ll take that advice in consideration.

      I absolutely love this advice! “I feel like a pancake!” Hilarious!

      When our kids hurt themselves (by bumping into a table for instance) instead of asking them if they are ok, we might ask, ” well is the table ok? Does the table need a hug, or a band-aid?” They forget to cry and giggle instead.

        Ha! We used to run over and lovingly rub the table and ask out loud if it was OK!
