Welcome to Razzy's Corner

Welcome everyone to my blog!!!!

I am just getting started so please bare with me while I get everything sorted out. I will spend the month of March deciding how to organize things and getting the page design how I want it. I will also be making some posts here and there, but things won't really get started until April. At that time I am using the A to Z challenge to really launch this blog.

Now you my be asking yourself "What is Razzy's Corner all about"? Well, basically this blog will focus on giving parenting information and advice. I will start out in April posting a new topic daily (because that's how the A to Z challenge works). After that I will shoot for a couple of posts a week, but will make sure to do at least one. The posts will vary in content, but will mainly address different parenting and discipline techniques, as well as various topics regarding kids. Sometimes the topics discussed will be serious and at other times they will be more on the humorous side.

I also have a young daughter and will likely be posting my own stories regarding her as well. For instance, I just had to take a break from this post because she spit up all over me, which just sparked inspiration for when I get to the letter "S". LOL!

Another component of this blog will be to help any parents out there who have a specific problem with their child, and specific questions can be left on the "Parenting Questions" page.

I am also planning a page that will highlight some of the various behavioral charts I have created for my clients (I'm a child Psychologist by day). I love creating behavioral charts and am looking forward to sharing them with everyone. I believe one of the keys to a successful behavioral chart is creativity.

Since I am just getting this blog up and running, I am open to feedback. Tell me what you would like to see. (Just don't say fewer pictures, because that won't happen. I love me some pictures. LOL!)

(Now I have to post my disclaimer, which is also on the main page for all to see)

* Please note that while I do draw from my clinical background, this blog is not intended to be psychological in nature and by reading or commenting on this blog, you are NOT entering into a therapeutic relationship.

Like Karen, I just wanted to welcome you to the blogverse. I have a Master's in Psychology -- which means I can use fanciful sounding labels for behaviors that still sadden and confound me!

Drift by my blog -- it is a writer's blog filled with fantasy, warmth, wit, and ... humilty! Have a great weekend, Roland

Hey there! welcome to blogging! I just saw you'd joined the delusional doom so I popped on over. I think the best blogging advice is talk about what you're passionate about and that will come through. It is the only way to keep something up long term.

Your daughter is adorable. I miss the baby stage. Mine are 15 and 12. Oi!

My parenting days are now grandma days ...but I always enjoy reading about children and families and sharing with a new blog friend.
And welcome aboard the A to Z challenge!

Congrats on your blog and best wishes. View Education Tipster (my BW) for books, teaching and parenting tips. Don't worry, she is not psychological so no therapeutic relationship is implied, just fun practical info.

Kristen, thank you so much for sharing your heart with us by setting this blog up! You have a GORGEOUS daughter! The grow up way too fast, it almost breaks my heart. Well, it actually does, especially after watching a video of my 14 year old girl when she was only 5. *sigh* *sniff*

My first question is: Have you heard of Love and Logic? and: What do you think of it if you have?

Okay! ;) I can't wait to see what juicy tidbits you'll post for the A-Z challenge!

look at the PRECIOUS little baby!!!!

Kristin said...

Thank you everyone for stopping by and supporting me in this wonderful bloggin experiance.

Elizabeth - I have heard of Love and Logic, but I haven't had any real life experiance with it. I tend to be somewhat skeptical of any parenting program because for the most part I feel that they ignore the individual differences in children. Let's face it, what works on one kid may or may not work on another. I believe that you can have a basic approach to parenting or philosophy (mine tends to be more behaviorism with an emphasis on positive parenting), but that you need to take into account individual differences.

Hart and CCH - Thank you! My daughter is my world. And she is pretty darn cute if I do say so myself. LOL!
