    Always Have and Always Will

    I have been trying new thing on my children for all their lives.  I now hear my daughter saying some of the things I used to tell her when she was younger.  I have to laugh when she comes to me for advice about getting her kid to do something they don't want to do.

    Done It

    I always tell my daughter you don't know if you are going to like it until you try it. Now I'm not referring to food as I'm the pickiest eater around, but in life. She's tried high diving, horse back riding, rock climbing, she's performed solos, played sports and more. She's very...

    Things I'd Advise My Children To Do

    These are things that I will tell my children, if ever I have children. 1. Don't get into debt - Debt is the shackles that bind you to money lenders. With debt, you are nothing more than a slave, paying off the noose around his neck with more work. Debt can easily spiral into...
