Book update!

Hi good people,

I know you’re wondering:  Tonya, you said the book, Are We There Yet?  How NOT to Kill Your Kids Before They Turn 18, would be out by now!  What’s up?  I’ll tell you what’s up.  I put too much in it!  Don’t get me wrong, I want every parent to have useful ideas & tips to help them survive & thrive while raising their kids from the ages of 2-18, but in this swarm of social media, emails, work stuff, home stuff & random stuff, having a book that is too full of information would just be too much.  I know that as a Mom, at the end of the day I feel like my eyeballs are gonna explode if I have to read ONE MORE THING!  So, it got me to thinking, why not scale back a bit?  There are already a ton of topics in Are We There Yet?  How NOT to Kill Your Kids Before They Turn 18 like:

  • How to modify behavior (biting, arguing, stomping, avoiding responsibilities, unnecessary questions, etc.)
  • How to improve communication & manage disagreements in your home (how can you let them know they’re heard, but you’re still obeyed without causing nuclear war in your home?)
  • Dealing with day to day stuff kids just DO (hey, they’re gonna do it.  Here are some preemptive measures for when they do)
  • Organizing tips for papers, groceries & other kid stuff (that work & are cheap or free)
  • Life preservers (tips to help you keep your house clean & keep your sanity)
  • Building character (selflessness, patience, self-confidence, etc.)

And special sections on teens & tweens that cover:

  • Getting rid of “the boy stink” in your house
  • Sneaking out
  • Methods to getting clear answers on what your kid is doing & with whom
  • Social media, cell phones & things you may not know about how predators can track your kids & find your home without you even knowing
  • Sex

& much more!

So yeah, I’ve been busy.  We’re raising ’em & writing about ’em at the same time!  I hope you’ll bear with me for a little longer.  I want to make sure I’m writing about what you need help with, but& not just wearing you out with a ton of info at one time.

Thanks for taking the time to read this!  I’ll be updating you again soon!
