  • 5 Ways to Make Thanksgiving Memorable After Separation

    *** A post courtesy of Integrous Resolution Services *** It’s that time of year again – Oh, Thanksgiving… a time to give thanks for the blessings in your life, including the blessings of what or who’s no longer in your life – perhaps a former partner or spouse (hint, hint!). Whether you’re happy to be divorced or separated, that doesn’t make the first Thanksgiving after a split any easier. The traditions you had established with your former spouse or partner are now broken, and you now may be forced to come up with a new plan for celebrating Thanksgiving, especially when you have children. As much as it’s easier said…

  • Misrepresented Single Moms have voices to help them

    Your Article Misrepresented Single Parents – So Lets Talk!

    Misrepresented Single Parents Have Voices To Support Them And Dreams Of My Own Is One Of Them.   Dear Ashley C. Myers, You’ve publicly slandered & misrepresented single parents, so let’s talk! I stumbled across your article, Problems With Single Parents Households, while conducting additional research for a nonprofit organization I plan to propose in the next coming weeks. Unfortunately I found no means of communicating with you. There was no link to contact you nor reach you via other means. I have sent a contact form to Odyssey, your article’s hosting site, thinking it was at least a reasonable way to reach you. Since your article was written publicly,…

  • A Call To Prayer, Action And Unity - As A Nation, As A People

    A Call To Prayer, Action And Unity – As A Nation, As A People

    * * * Dreams Of My Own extend deepest sympathy and prayer to all who were affected by the horrific tragedy that occurred in Las Vegas on the night of October 1, 2017. * * * A Society Gone Cold Or A Crisis Of Unity? “Who did this?” “What motivated them?” “Was the intent about race/hate/terrorism?” “Mental health?” “Was it preventable?” Who’s at fault?’ From the most basic individual to the highly esteemed, people are far too focused on perpetuating investigation and proposing their own case study. Arguments are ensued, relationships destroyed and basic respect for people seem so ancient, nowadays, that perhaps it’ll only be rediscovered by excavation. What do…

  • DISCIPLINE and LOVE –

    “For whom the LORD loves He reproves, even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.” – Proverbs 3:12 Kids are just kids, right? Of course; but, there are behaviors and choices that must be addressed when displayed or exhibited. As my parents would say, “Behind every action, awaits a consequence or a reward. Choose wisely.” As hard as it is to deliver a consequence to a child for a bad choice, the alternative can often be even worse. Recall the first time you felt your newborn in your arms and even in the womb. That love was pure unfiltered love. But I can recall the first time…

  • Single Dads’ Involuntary Silence – The Pitch For Your Voice

    Hey, I need to hear from you! You, single dad. You, father. You, who knows a father. I’ve personally met and worked with parents behind the scenes who face difficulty as a single parent and subsequently navigating the system as required of them in order to reunify with their children. Most often, it’s with mothers – but this is not to say that fathers are not involved. While I can certainly touch on this topic alone, my preference is to pitch on a subject that is widely recognized but has rarely been supported on the public platform. Single Dads – their lack of representation and support, and the need to…

  • TABLETS, TOYS and THINKING… Oh My! | Educational and Learning Toys Parents Love

    Part 2 from “The Modern Day Idiot Box” Back in February 2017, I wrote a blog about kids spending way too much screen-time. Just to give you a quick recap, I wanted to strike up a conversation as to the good and the bad of modern day technology. It’s quite alarming how technology has, in a sense, enabled a generation of “bright lights screen junky stimulated zombies”… ok, that’s clearly something I just made up, but the point is, us parents these days are put in a rather tough spot of either cutting electronics cold turkey, disabling Wi-Fi’s, and/or forcing children to  C O M M U N I C A T E !…
