It is interesting to me the effort some go to in order to be insulted.  Why are we so quick to take offense?  

Example 1: I watched a number of sports games over the past several weekends; after school activities are in full swing, therefore so are the games.  Game...

There is a time and a place for everything.  I think it is important to remember that, especially because the world our kids are growing up in is very very different than the world we knew as kids.   While we spent our days at school, and then connected with our friend...

Sez the dog

As you well know, there exist cat people and dog people.  I’m not sure if this is really a statement about personality so much as preference for pet (or at least, that’s what I’ll claim to think.  I deny saying otherwise).  I am a dog person, although most r...

The world, much like your table at Benihana's, is filled with strangers.  Every single one of these strangers has at least one (but likely more) interesting story to share.  Every single one of these strangers has value.  I'm not sure I believe in karma or fate; some t...

Don’t let yourself become so concerned with raising a good kid that you forget you already have one.  Glennon Melton, momastery.com

Isn’t it true, sometimes we get so focused (fixated?) on what isn’t going as we planned or would like that we rush by and overlo...

Bet right now you are so regretting not signing your kids up for consecutive summer camps from the day school finished to the Friday before it starts again.

Bet right now you are thinking year-round school is the best.thing.ever.

Bet right now the sound of the words ‘Iii...

Focusing on the good

When you’re in the midst of a heated ‘discussion’ with your kid (no matter their age), I would be willing to bet the last thing you are thinking about is any one of that child’s good qualities.  Oh, we’ve all been there.   The blind anger you are pr...

Meet your Coach

I am Susie Csorsz Brown and I am a Certified Parent Coach through PCI, specializing in families in transition. I am also a Wellness Coach.  I have a Health background, and I practice what I preach. I have three children, so I coach from experience. I am a Foreign Service spouse (since 2000), and have learned to deal with family issues from the stress of relocation, school issues, medical situations, pregnancy and divorce as well as family angst. 

You should know, healthy eating is one of my passions.  The thing is: food can be good for you and taste good, too.  I want my kids to eat well, and to grow up knowing what smarter food options are out there.
