Growing Friendships by Eileen Kennedy-Moore & Christine McLaughlin


Back-to-school is around the corner and kids everywhere will be faced with new and exciting challenges, one of which is friendships.  Most kids struggle socially at some time in their life from bullying, having an argument with a friend or finding a new playmate in the classroom.  These struggles can be awfully painful to go through.

What if you could help your child ease their frustrations with a special book written just for them?  From psychologist and children's friendships expert Eileen Kennedy-Moore and parenting and health writing Christine McLaughlin comes a social development primer that gives kids the answers they need to make and keep friends.  



Growing Friendships is filled with more than 200 lighthearted cartoons that keep kids engaged.  This book features plenty of true-to-life examples with research-based practical solutions.  This wonderful book gives girls and boys the tools they need to make sense of friendship challenges.


This book is recommended for ages 6-9.  However, my 13-year-old daughter read this book in one night and informed me she highly recommends it.  As a teacher, I feel this book is a valuable resource for all school-age children when faced with perplexing friendship issues.  We all want our kids to build and maintain friendships in a positive way.  Growing Friendships is book that will speak to your child using humor and real-life situations. 

You can purchase Growing Friendships on Amazon here.

HomeRight ElectroLight Fire Starter Giveaway - 2 WINNERS!

The HomeRight ElectroLight Fire Starter cuts preparation time in half! Just when I thought I had perfected my barbecuing process, along comes the HomeRight ElectroLight. When I first started barbecuing, I used charcoal lighter fluid to prepare my briquettes. Soon after, I was introduced to the charcoal chimney which was more efficient and got my coals ready faster than using lighter fluid. From here on out, I’ll be using the Homeright Electrolight; when you’re perfecting racks of pork ribs or pork butt for 6-8 hours, any savings from preparation time is surely welcomed.  This tool is a game changer.


The unit itself looks like an oversized curling iron and utilizes a plug that requires a wall outlet to work. Once you have stacked your charcoal briquettes, depress the red button and touch the tip of the barrel to charcoal or wood. Once embers are visible, you pull the tip slightly away and an internal blower will continue to fan the flame. You can repeat this process on several areas of the briquette stack to get them ready for cooking quicker. Instead of letting my charcoal chimney heat up naturally for 30-40 minutes, I have the power to get my coals ready in half the time with my Homeright ElectroLight!


Want to cut the prep time of your briquettes? The Homeright ElectroLight needs to be in your barbecue tool arsenal. Check out HomeRight for more information as well as other innovative products. You can purchase their products from Amazon, Home Depot, and several other retailers.

Giveaway:  HomeRight is giving TWO lucky readers an ElectroLight!  An $89.99 value.

The Wally shoes are flexible and lightweight with a wide forefoot vamp that allows air circulation in the toe area keeping your feet fresh and dry.

Handmade Autism Heart Giveaway from Spiritual Taco

As a Special Education teacher, Autism awareness is near and dear to my heart.  Autism now affects 1 in 68 children and 1 in 42 boys.  Autism is one of the fastest growing developmental disorders in the United States.  I'm sure you or someone you know has been affected by Autism.

The Autism Heart from the Etsy shop, Spiritual Taco, is handmade by artist John Barrow from Peru.  As Autism parents themselves, Spiritual Taco created and drafted this unique piece to show their love and acceptance towards Autism.  The eco-friendly heart is made to show multi-colored, interlocking puzzle pieces, which symbolizes the complexity of Autism.


The heart is made from solid wood with a tint made of water based polyurethane finish which allows for a simple yet beautiful wood grain look.  The heart measures 5 3/4 inches wide and 6 inches tall including the base.

Please take a look at Spiritual Taco's blog.  It will give you more insight to another reason this couple began their venture.  It will bring tears to your eyes and open your mind for more awareness.  This family has been selling their Autism hearts to raise money for their son's medical expenses as well as his legal defense against a defective system that is in place to protect our children.  They have a Facebook page where you will find seven episodes on Fox 26 news about their story.


I was stunned by the gorgeous heart sent to me.  It arrived wrapped in a sweet gift bag ready for gift giving. It truly is a jaw-dropping work of art.  I showcase this handmade piece with pride, not only because I work with children with Autism, but because I now support the Spiritual Taco family and their quest for Autism awareness.  Claudia and Christopher, you say you hope to make your son very proud of you someday.  You're doing just that....he is proud of you.


Spiritual Taco donates part of their proceeds to Special Cheers, a non profit organization.  They take rescued horses and rehabilitate them and train them to use with children with special needs.
