Expertise

I can answer questions about children from newborn (including preemie) to school age. I can also try to provide emotional support for people who have had a stillborn child. I am a part-time working, stay-at=home, online college attending Mom who has a very hectic schedule and love it. I also have my own blog - from-chaos-to-control.com, which includes a very affordable email recipe subscription, shirts supporting my site (all proceeds from shirt sales go into my children's savings accounts, so please be generous) and - coming soon - some of my hand crocheted items (pillows and stuffed animals).

Experience in the area

I have 7 children - 2 daughters born November 2004, November 2005, a son born September 2008, a son born in September 2010, a son born February 2013, a son born October 2014 and a son born February 2016. My daughter born in 2005 was a preemie (3 months early) and I also had a daughter stillborn in 2006 and a miscarriage of a daughter in 2009.

Organizations

I am a lifetime member of Business Professionals of America.

Education/Credentials

I have a diploma in Child Day Care and an Associate Degree in Teacher Aide. I have worked in the Day Care field, as well as having my own children.

What do you like about this subject?

I enjoy being able to help people with problems they might be having or just verify what they may be thinking is right about raising their children.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I hope to be able to help parents with questions regarding raising their children.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Children can learn better if they are talked to like they are small adults, not left out or left to feel inferior.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Types of discipline are very controversial, especially with states now passing laws on how children are able to be raised.
