"Allowing your child to decide what to do with his/her worn toys provides them a feeling of control in a situation that is largely, out of their control."
Over the years, many studies have been conducted to define and rank which typical life experiences cause the greatest amount of stress for the average adult. For anyone who has had to make a move, it probably comes as no surprise that moving ranks within the top 10 of the most stressful events and once you add children†to the equation, the stress level only increases.We have compiled the following tips to help North Palm Beach and Palm Beach area parents prepare their young children for a move, and to also help them adjust to their new home and community once the move has taken place.
#1 - TALK EARLY
Tell your children about the upcoming move as soon as possible.
Waiting until the For Sale sign appears on your lawn, or having your kids find out about the move from neighbors, will only leave them feeling left ou ...

Spring is Springing! Yay! We just came inside from shooting a video outside and Welcome to the month of April. By the time you are reading this, you will be deep into it. That means we can’t play any April Fool’s jokes on you. I have never been a fan of those anyway. When I was a kid my favorite radio station announced they were going to be changing formats and playing elevator music and for half the day they did that, only to announce it was a big April Fool’s Joke.
Another BIG deal in April is TAX day! Yep! Deadlines for filing those personal income tax returns. I don’t think most people mind paying taxes as long as they are being put to good use. I think it’s the waste that bothers most citizens.
Both of these days I mentioned above are for sure conversation starters, one full of funny stories, the other maybe not so much, but there are few days more memorable than the day you buy your dream home. That d ...

Move-up Homebuyers Beware: Free Report Reveals How to Save Thousands
A new report has just been released which identifies the 6 most common and costly mistakes that homebuyers make when moving to a larger home.

In answer to this issue, Industry Insiders have prepared a FREE special report entitled "6 Mistakes to Avoid When Trading Up to a Larger Home."

Who Cares if the Ground Hog got it right, Spring is STILL Coming. I promise.
WOW! It’s nice out! Yes, I realize that when you get this and read it that it could be cold and rainy, but our chilly days are just about over. Everyone loves Spring, primarily because it means… summer is near!
For many across this great country though, it’s still COLD, grey, and snowy! One thing is for sure, this winter season is coming to an end. It does every year without fail.
Just like the weather seasons come and go, so do the seasons of life. Are you with me when I say that these seasons seem to come and go faster and faster as well as the time?
Some of life’s seasons will be HOT and others will be COLD, some high and some low. The lows we want to move by quickly, the highs we want to stay in forever. But it’s the low points, those tough times, that I have learned the most from. All of these ex ...
