Today Parenting Team: Family Emergency

My family recently experienced a difficult situation that left us wondering if I’d lose my daughter and unborn grandson.

As hard as it was to have my child go through a life altering ordeal twice in a matter of days, I realized how important it was to respect that hospitals have new policies in place to lessen the treat of their medical staff and patients developing the coronavirus.

In my latest Today Show #ParentingTeam post, I share a glimpse of the unexpected events that unfolded a month ago and how I’m truly thankful to the surgeon, nurses, and rest of the medical staff for being with my daughter when it wasn’t possible for me to be.

Today Parenting: Being an Essential Employee

Here’s my latest article on how being an essential employee and how I’m often conflicted on how close I should be to my kids after my shift is done for the day.

Texas or Bust!

In 25 days I will be living back in Texas and starting my new job managing the Social Media Development for the company I currently work for.

I’m nervous and excited. My overall health is a top priority, next to my kids wellbeing. I know it’ll take time for all of us to adjust to our new lives, but everything will be just fine.

We just have to take it one day at a time.

How to Help Your Kids and Tweens Cope with the Loss of a Celebrity

I woke up early Sunday morning to see the news that Cameron Boyce, a beloved Disney actor, unexpectedly passed away due to complications from an epileptic seizure.

It was a shock to me mainly because I had no idea Cameron even had this lifelong medical condition. All three of my kids watched this very talented actor on the small and big screen. Situations, where celebrities pass away due to various reasons, can surprise even their youngest fans. Questions usually follow and my parent duty is to help answer those inquiries to the best of my abilities.

In most cases, our children are left upset. Maybe they looked up to that particular person or was influenced by something their character did. In my latest Today Parenting Team article, I share how I previously helped my kids to cope with the loss of an actor they adored.
