Written by dad - 6 Comments

As a followup to my recent post on our allowance system, I thought I’d post a link to a report from Montana State University on teaching your kids about finances.

Diaper Rash Treatments

Written by mom - 3 Comments

Potty Problems

Written by dad - 3 Comments

The other day we got an e-mail through our contact form with a plea for help… Here’s the deal: My wife and I are at our wit’s end with our 4 year old boy. He’s been potty trained for 2 years, yet he will urinate on the living room carpet if no one is watching […]
