We just found a nice family resource on the web called Craftyplaces.com. The article that grabed my attention was a post entitled: Your Guide To Family Crafts. Craftyplaces is just a dynomite new site. The post made me think a little about families and doing things together. In looking at my life for example, I work all day, come home and have to jump on the computer to do more work. Thats life in corporate america, it tends to rob our free time, and many times we start to give less and less attention to those we love and care about. That is why family time is extemely important.

is not just about coming together for dinner, or going to the movies, it is about being actively involved as a family unit. A great way to do this is find activities the whole family can enjoy. Whether its , unicycling, cards, games, puzzles, finding that one thing the whole family can become actively involved in I feel will help build a stronger family. In todays busy world we just have to make the time, after all what is really more important then our wifes, sons, daughters, or husbands? Family must come first. Now that I made myself feel a little guilty, I must try to follow my own advice. kevin

They don't do any chores around the house at all because I never asked them to. I went back to work last year and now realize what a big mistake I made.

Whether you are a new parent or not, perhaps one of the most difficult decisions you will make is selecting a good place for your child to stay while you are at work. There is good reason for this: you are choosing the people who will be caring for your child. Choosing day care is a big decision and you should take your time to make the right choice. A good place to start is with other parents. Where do your friends and neighbors send their children? Ask about their experience and recommendation. READ More on Selecting A Day Care For Your Child
