Back To School Blues

The Saga Continues

by: Sharon DeVellis

It's been a particularly tough start to the school year at Casa DeVellis.  I know it's going to get better, this is all an adjustment process - but in the interim I think we're in for a couple of rough weeks with Son No. 2.

Back To School

It's Never Black Or White

by: Sharon DeVellis

I just dropped the kids off at school, came home and cried.  I make no bones about the fact that I’m sad when my kids go back to school.  Yet, I always kind of felt like I was in the minority.  Many of my friends are super happy and articles and ads seem to reflect the parent giddily sending the kids off for another year.

Sharon is a Common Sense Parent which is somewhere in between being free-range and helicopter. She believes in being active as a family and eating well 85% of the time. The other 15% is for the days when she's PMSing and then all bets are off. So far her parenting style has worked wonders for her two boys who astound her on a daily basis but that's not to say she doesn't have time to totally screw it up. She can't teach you how to keep your house clean while balancing a job and motherhood but if you're a mom who's struggling to figure it out, you've found your tribe.

  Call me lazy, but I did my homework when I was in school. I have no interest in doing it for my kids. About: Why I Stopped Making My Kids Do Their Homework Join the conversation...
