How To Reduce Conflict With Your Kids (EXPERT)

“You’ve got to accentuate the positive.”  (Song by Harold Arlen & Johnny Mercer, 1944)   A positive attitude (or even a less negative attitude) has the potential to change lives.  This old song lyric came to mind while reading The Roller-Coaster Years – Raising Your Child Through the Maddening Yet Magical Middle School Years (Gianetti & Sagarese).  This is a fascinating book for parents of 10-15-year-olds, and for parents who want a gl

5 Steps To A Happy Valentine's Day For Single Women

Make your Valentine’s Day about love in general instead of just about romantic love. It’s your holiday and it's possible to adjust it so you feel strong instead of weak, happy instead of sad, loved instead of lonely. You have a choice. Option 1: You can choose to whine and cry with negative, bitter single women and justify why you're happy to be single so that you may at some point believe it yourself (I realize there are some of us who really are happy single) or commiserate as to why all men are the s

7 Ways To Overcome Mental Obstacles To Self Confidence

Imagine your life as a journey with many crossroads, detours and alternate routes as you head towards your destiny.  I truly believe that each one of us is born with a destiny plan and a mission on this earth.

As humans travel along the journey of life, it is natural to encounter obstacles and roadblocks. Many of us get “stuck in the mud” and can’t figure out what to do, so it is easier to just stay stuck.

Tips for Improving Your Mindset

The Law of Attraction isn't just a myth. Maybe people believe in the notion that if you put good energy and thoughts out into the universe on a daily basis, that is what you'll receive in return. Putting this into practice is easier said than done but that doesn't mean you can't give it a shot, especially if you've been down in the dumps lately or recognize that negative thinking has taken too strong of a hold in your life lately.

10 Ways to Create Parenting Miracles out of Molecules

When I was a child, it seemed like every adult in my zip code had an uncanny skill for making a “mountain out of a molehill.” In other words, of taking the smallest shred of negativity and amplifying all the tyranny and rottenness that shred of negativity may have implied. Before I go any further, let me give credit where credit is due. Exaggeration—the ability to weave a grand story out of next to nothing—is a very creative endeavor.

Single and Dating? How To Feel Lovable When You Face Rejection

Several of my dating coaching clients have contacted me this week feeling crummy about online dating. They are tired of the emailing and the men disappearing. They are bored with guys who don’t follow through or ask for a second date. As a dating coach for women in midlife, I totally understand how disheartening it can be. I myself went through this at 40 to find the man who became my adorable husband of 12 years now.
