Fruit smoothies are also enjoyable on a summer day. Made with natural yoghurt, a little milk, and fruits you enjoy such as berries, mangos, watermelon or banana.

Solution: Get all leadership trained. More and more training is available, free of charge, to unit leaders through the internet. Leaders can get one on one help by attending the district’s training classes with live face to face contact with experienced leaders and trainers.

Although the custodial parent has most say over the child’s life, he/she also has duties. It is his/her job to make sure the kids have a place to live. Transportation to doctor’s appointments and school activities is important. Adequate clothing and food are the responsibility of the custodial parent. Helping the child grow into a responsible adult is mainly the custodial parent’s obligation.

If there are sale items or any specials in the store, you get the same deals if you are doing your shopping online. You can choose to have your order delivered or pick it up when everything is done. Of course, not all stores offer delivery. Even so, the idea of having someone else do your shopping so you can avoid the crowds is a great way to shop.

Goodbyes are an integral part of our lives. We all go through changing jobs and saying goodbye to people we have worked with and grown close to. My relationships with people are very important to me. I can remember one job in particular. I worked for SMRT, Inc. in Portland, Maine. On my last day I managed to sob my way around 42 desks saying goodbye. These people still hold a warm place in my heart. This was my most gratifying, favorite job, other than being a mom!

Alright, so they are well rested and, I’m sure, eager for the first day. If you have elementary aged kids you might want to pick out an outfit or two, for the first day, ahead of time. It tends to make the first few days a little less hectic in the morning. And, no matter how well prepared we think we are, we always make sure we have the grab and go breakfasts, like hot pockets, pop tarts, etc. for when my teenaged son wakes up three minutes before his first class starts.

Role-play scenarios with your children where sticky, uncomfortable situations may arise and train them to rise above them. Ask questions such as: “What would you say if your best friend offered you a cigarette?” “What would you say if a member of your circle of friends said you were un-cool?” Remember, role playing is an integral part in helping your child to avoid smoking. These types of rehearsals can mentally prepare your child for real-life situations.
