Be Aware

Submitted by scott

I focus a lot on my kids at, and rightly so since this is after all, a parenting blog. But I'd like to step back, take a few minutes and say be aware.

I know that a new year often signals fresh starts, new beginnings, and wiping the slate clean. However, the fact of the matter is for many, a new year means just another year of heartache, financial troubles, and one year closer to the kids moving out.
