Dynamically Balanced Parenting

In an attempt to combine my writing into one site, I began "Dynamically Balanced Parenting" in January 2016.  My first post can be found at:

September of 2016,I realized that I could better accomplish that goal by using blogger. I will continue to share posts and add to "Dynamically Balanced Parenting" by highlighting the challenges we face as parents.  

Dynamic Balance identifies how we as parents need to constantly find techniques that work for our children and within our family systems.  

Our "balance" changes (is dynamic) on a daily (and sometimes hourly) basis. Sometimes, what works one day fails to work the next.  Even though we try to treat each child "fairly" , someone is always going to feel left out, ignored, or unrewarded for their good behaviors. 

"Mommy, why don't you say anything to
(fill in the name) when they (fill in the behavior)?"

It's our job as parents to be firm, loving, and consistent with each child.  However....(and this is a huge however)  you are a HUMAN parent!  

As I remind my own three children...

"I do love you.  Please remember that 
I am a HUMAN mommy, 
not a robot."

Instead of scrapping this site (that required way more time and patience to create than I had originally intended) I will continue to post articles and insights related to the ever changing adventures that define "parenting".  

Two of my favorite quotes (thanks to a very unusual, flip your brain inside out, think way beyond your comfort level English teacher from my Junior Year of High School ~ Mr. Heiner)
"You could not step twice into the same river; 
for other waters are ever flowing on to you."

~ Heraclitus, On the Universe

"All is flux, nothing stays still."
~ Heraclitus, from Diogenes Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers

As a parent, I can now appreciate these quotes even more that I could as a 16 year old student.

About Me

My photo

I have over 20 years of experience in Early Childhood Development Birth-Age 5 including work in classrooms and as an Infant/Toddler Program Manager.  I have several writing projects in progress including a resource book for parents of infants and infant room teachers in a full day child development (school) program.  The book will provide families with information about what to expect and how to monitor their child's progress in an Infant room.  My second book project involves how to cope with family challenges, lessons in forgiveness, dealing with a spouse's addiction, and reinventing yourself along the way.  I am excited about all of these projects and am currently accepting comments regarding experiences my readers have had placing their child into a full day child care program.  I would also like to hear from Infant room teachers.
