We've all had them -- those child get-togethers that turn into disasters. Join About.com experts Terri Mauro (Parenting Special Needs), Catherine Holecko (Family Fitness), Kathy Ceceri (Homeschooling), and Lisa Jo Rudy (Autism) as we tell some of our playdate horror stories and give our suggestions for avoiding the worst.
CHILD SUPPORT INJUSTICE AND VICTIMIZATION
Other than paying child support, what else are you doing for your kid?
How many times have you taken your kid to school and picked him up? Talked to his teachers about how he’s doing, socially & academically? How much homework do you help with? Do you know the names of his best friend, his best friends’ parents, the little girl he has a crush on, the kid he hates? How many playdates do you supervise every week? How many field trips have you chaperoned?
You know you’re supposed to check if the house your child is playing at has a gun in it, or the carpool your child is riding in has a texting or drinking driver, or the sleepover your child is going to has responsible adult supervision. But it’s so very awkward to ask. Join About.com parenting experts Terri Mauro (Parenting Special Needs), Catherine Holecko (Family Fitness), Susan Adcox (Grandparents), and Amanda Morin (Kids' Learning Acvtivities) as we give some advice for how to do this vetting of other parents, and how to gracefully receive those questions yourself. Find links to stories we mentioned in the podcast, and tell us how you handle your vetting, on our Facebook page.
Parenthood can be a lonely place sometimes, we find ourselves socializing with our kids friends, but are they YOUR friend? The competition of parties and who throws the best play date can be daunting sometimes. Pour some wine while we whine about it! Dealing with the other moms at the park and other social situations. Summer is here and there is only sooo much moondough we can make before we have a mommy meltdown and need to be around our mommy peers without tears.
Let's get real and down to business, up in your business, lets face it we all work hard raising our kids!

This is our first show of Practical Magical Living for Families of Today
In this, and upcoming shows, we will be discussing. . .
How our conscious awakening journey fits in with conscious parenting How to live our dreams, grow, and evolve -- when meals, laundry, music lessons, sports, and playdates are part of our everyday lives How to focus on ourselves when we also choose to be present parents and conscious partners
We believe that integration of these aspects is embodied enlightenment.
