Bio: I'm a mother, step mother, wife and teacher on a mission to save the rest of the world from my own mistakes. I'm no expert, but I've got years of trial and error behind me. My mess ups are your salvation! I've borrowed from my teaching and life experiences to create a backward design approach to parenting, focusing on the end first. When we know what we want, it's easier to develop the right path to get there. I'll be giving practical, witty advice and tackling the tough issues every parent hopes they won't face, but I'm telling you, you will! Welcome to my blog!
