Family In Need

How far would you go to help a family member in need? Before you answer, let me first tell you that this is the side of the family who is always needing something. This particular time its something big, money perhaps....Based on those bits of information, what would be your answer???

Have you ever had a family member call you up and ask for help in the wee hours of the morning because they have found themselves behind bars with your number in their head?..Well, if you have this is another one of those times. If that has never happened to you, then your like me, but what if it did? How would you respond? Picture this...They call you up at about 1:00 or 2:00 in the morning while your sleep, first your house phone and then your cell. Your thinking, whoever this is, they must want something important. So you answer the phone to find it is a family member you haven't heard from in along time, your almost suprised they have called you. However, you can't help but realize that he/she is from the side of the family who are always going through something. Considering the time he/she chose to call you, you can't help but wonder "what is it now". They began to tell you how they need your help, and that they are in jail. They go on to say that they are being framed for fraud and their bail is $550,000 dollars. They go on to say that they talked to their lawyer and all they need is 55,000 to get out. They tell you that they have the money but, their money is tied up because of the fraud situation. They ask if you could just put it on your credit card, they will pay you back the money with interest. They also ask if you could call their dad for them. When you explain that you don't have that kind of money to put up for a bail, they want you to put up your house. They even mention that you should call the rest of the family because this is a time for everybody to stick together. So again...My question is, How far will you go to help a
family member? Or would You? Will it be $550,000...$55,000.....Your house, or would you get the family together and tell them the story he/she told you? Tell me what you think. Should family stick together no matter what the price? Leave a comment tell me what your responses would be, and why.

Halloween costumes

Are you dressing up for Halloween??  If so what  areyou going to be?..  If you have kids, what are they going to be??  Leave a comment and let me know

My kids are going to be football players.  I visited the local thift store and found them some football jerseys and real football pants.  I just need something to resemble pads.  I read somewhere that I can attach rolled up towels to the inside of the jersey for pads.  We also have a helmet at home, but I have to find one more by tomarrow.

Another closet corrects the cry.

Potty Training Tips

I answer alot of questions about potty training since I have 3 boys. My 8 yr old is long passed that stage but I have a 3yr old who has been potty trained for about almost a year 1/2. My two year old was potty trained early(wearing underwear all day with no accidents) but he had a re-lapse. Since his relapse he has recovered thankfully and is now potty trained and wearing underwear again. However helping others through this stage is what I have resulted to doing, especially since diapers and pull-ups can become expensive. Both my younger sons were in pampers and pullups together so I understand the amount of cash dished out. For beginning potty trainers I would suggest getting the potty training kit given out by pullups. Here is a link:  There are also sticker charts and stickers for the potty that you can order. The sticker charts are a great reward system. You can also accompany them with treats or things your child loves. The sticker decals for the potty are also a good way for the child to see the fun side of potty training. I have even used my kid's favorite stuff animal to influence potty training. Every hour R-bow (the stuffed animal) also went to go potty, and he received stickers too. If you have older children, preferrably of the same sex, recruit them to help and be on the cheer team. Remember this is a fun process and if it becomes stressful, then the child will not want to go, so keep it fun. I even do a pamper exchange ceremony to symbolize becoming a "BIG KID" I have them turn in there pampers for pullups, and pullups for what I call "Big Boy draws!" or for a girls "Big Girl Panties!" My boys got so excited about this ceremony. We always remembered to give lots of high fives, even from the big brother, which to my boys was the most important one.

Good Luck Parents. Your on your way to potty training BLISS

Aiming to Please, or Not!

Family are not the easiest people to please, yet some people feel that if they don't have their family's approval that it's hard to be happy for themselves.  Picture this:  A mom who has been divorced for about six years and alone, not even dating, decides to have a romantic relationship with a guy she meet and having been going on dates with.  She has two children at home, but the rest of her children are grown. out of the house and some with families of their own.  About a week after she decides to make it official, he comes to visit.  Her oldest daughter also comes from out of town to visit as well.  So she decides to let her children that live in the area and her daughter who was visiting, meet him.  They all went to church together and out to eat.  He met one of her grown sons and her oldest daughter and another daughter.  During the time they spent with him going out to eat and to church, they saw some things that they didn't like about him.  The son noticed he went up and started having a conversation with another woman with the mother (his girlfriend) standing there but didnt think to introduce her.  The oldest daughter just thought he was totally wrong for her. That entire day went smoothly, but the conflict came when all the children were back at their homes.  The daughter decided she didn't like him and she was gonna let it be known.  She called all the brothers and sisters and discussed what she didn't like about their mother's new boyfriend.  She went on to tell them how she was embarrassed at how he was behaving during dinner at the restaurant and how she thought  he was.hiding something.  After discussing it with her siblings, she decided to call her mom and make her case.  She called her mom and told her mom that she talked to the rest of her siblings and they decided that none of them like her new boyfriend.  She went on to tell why and began insulting him and telling her she could do better that him.  Her mother disagreed but agreed she was entitled to her opinion.  The next day after learning how the daughter recruited the other siblings and spoke for them, the mother became bothered and offended.  She realized how she talk negatively about her knew boyfriend to her brothers who had not met him, causing them to get a negative perception with giving him a chance.  This angered the mother.  She wanted not to care, but it botherd her that her grown children dont approve her new boyfriend, when she wanted them so badly to like him.  When the mother became angry and expressed her feelings by asking why can't she be happy for her. The daughter responded by saying, "This is why we didn't want to tell you the truth, because you always get angry and think nobody wants you happy.  My question to you is do you think the mother needs ther grown children's approval?  Now that this has all happen she doesn't feel like she can call her daughter and talk about her relationship with her, because she won't be happy for her.  Who do you side with, the mother or the daughter?  If you're the daughter how do you tell your mom you dont think her boyfriend is right for her, or do you? One approach is to stay out of it, do you think this is  the best decision? Can you be happy for someone and concerned for them at the same time?  What should the mom do?  Tell me what you think. I was the mediator in this incident earlier this week and wanted to she what you guys thought.

Hello World


I am Charris. I am sharing my words in hopes of inspiring with others and touching lives whenever and wherever I can. From the time I was a a young child I was always asked for advice on different situations. I did my best to give advice but I was always a good listner. Only giving advice when needed but listening was important to those who reached out to me. Some people need to be just listened to. I often love to write paragraphs of inspired thoughts because I am a writer at heart. Communication is vital and we all need to be able to express ourselves. That being said, this is where I will express myself through thoughts, writing, etc. that inspire or just things I want to share with you all. I hope you enjoy and express yourself as well.
