Your kid is smart. Even if others say differently. Smart is defined in so many ways. Your kid doesn’t have to be a genius to be smart. Your kid doesn’t have to get straight A’s to be smart. YOU make your kids smart….by recognizing  ALL the amazing abilities they do have. Don’t limit them by holding them to a standard of what other people say is smart. Love your kids for who they are. Love your kids for who they are becoming. And most of all teach your kids that smart is not the ability to know, smart is the ability to love. Teach them to love themselves. And the smartness that is really them will be the smartest thing they will ever need to know. Be a smart parent. Teach smart by teaching them how to Start Loving Life®…

If you are against bullying you are going about life the wrong way.

Shocker, I know.  But here’s a fact: You can’t fight ANYTHING and win. Fighting of any kind is NOT beneficial. Most people would disagree, but those are typically the ones fighting anything and everything. Here’s a little secret: Whatever you give your attention to gets bigger. That’s right, bigger. I didn’t say better.  I said bigger. And if you are focused on something you do not want, that also gets bigger. Sounds like wasted energy to me. But that’s only because most people don’t realize that in order to affect anything positively in life (meaning achieving the ideal outcome) you must focus on what you want.  NOT the lack of it. Therefore, don’t be against bullying, because that is the problem.  

Instead, be for the solution which is instilling HARDCORE confidence in your kids, because when (and if) the bully comes around your kids will be so in-tune with who they are, they won’t even care. See the power in that? And this doesn’t just go for kids or bullies. It goes for life. Because sometimes the bully can be a friend, sibling, sometimes the bully can be a boss. Either way it doesn’t matter. Because when you believe in yourself…The only opinion of you that matters…Is your OWN.

Stop Anti-bullying and instead, START LOVING LIFE®.

Poolside Picks

Dive into your summer reading list

(Family Features) Laying out on the beach and floating in the pool are true hallmarks of summer. A good book, however, can elevate these relaxing experiences to a new level.

Whether you find yourself looking for a beach read, a book for the pool or something to help you escape while lounging on the couch with the windows open, these sizzling summer reads offer something for nearly every type of reader. From suspense to romance and adventure, you don’t want to miss these books this summer.

Some Secrets Aren’t Meant to Be Shared

From author Meg Mitchell Moore comes a warm, witty and suspenseful novel filled with small-town secrets, summer romance, big time lies and spiked seltzer. In “Two Truths and A Lie” the leader of an idyllic beach town “mom squad” has made surprising effort to include a new resident and her daughter in typically closed-group activities, though they’re not the only ones she’s been spending more time with. A blend of propulsive thriller and gorgeous summer read, Moore’s latest novel is a reminder that happiness isn’t always a day at the beach, some secrets aren’t meant to be shared and the most precious things are loved ones.

Romantic Adventure Proves Anything Can Happen

No. 1 “New York Times” bestseller Susan Elizabeth Phillips returns to her Chicago Stars series with a romance between a quarterback and one of the world’s greatest opera singers – and a major diva – in “When Stars Collide.” It’s Mozart meets Monday night football as the temperamental soprano and stubborn jock embark on a nationwide tour promoting a luxury watch brand, they engage in soul-searching, trash talk and backstage drama. Threatening letters, haunting photographs and a series of dangerous encounters also complicate their lives and make them wonder if it’s the work of an overzealous fan or something more sinister.

Transatlantic Love Story Raises the Royal Stakes

“New York Times” and “USA Today” bestselling author Alyssa Cole’s second Runaway Royals novel, “How to Find a Princess,” is an Anastasia-inspired romance featuring a long-lost princess who finds love with the female investigator tasked with tracking her down. When a threat to her grandmother’s livelihood pushes the princess to return to Ibarania, the investigator takes her on a transatlantic adventure. When they finally make it, they realize there’s more at stake than just cash and crown, and the princess must learn what it means to fight for what she desires rather than what she feels bound to by duty.
