Parenting and Nutrition: I hate being the bad guy, Part 2

And you could be more vigilant […]

TEXAS, PART 5 of 7: Video of WENDY and JANET in AUSTIN

As Kristin says, our Texas trip was “pure abundance.” She and I always talk about relationships that are “all good things,” versus relationships or activities or thoughts that are scarcity-oriented or damaging rather than nurturing.

Last year on Halloween, I posted that I pay my kids $20 for the privilege of dumping their Halloween candy in the trash outside. On facebook, I have the interesting situation of 90% of my personal page’s friends being GSG readers, and 10% being people I actually know. One of my high-school friends, cheerleader Beth, […]

My kids and the Sugar Bet

The night before my bet with Matthew started—I must pay $10,000 if I eat any sugar—I told the kids. I wanted them to be part of watching me. (Matthew’s mom and grandma had come to my class in Sandy the week before we started, and I asked his mom to let me know if she […]

Back to the candy factory…..I mean, school

My children have gone back to school. If I said I was sorry about that, I’d be lying. I love my kids, but summer is hard for working moms. And August is crazy around here because I’m about to leave on my 4th trip of the month, all 4 of my kids have had birthdays […]

How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Last week Tennyson had a close encounter with a curb he tried to jump on his bike. I had his broken tooth repaired later that day. Everything scabbed over and his giant fat lip was subsiding, when he got stung by two wasps at a baseball game. Here’s a photo of him 18 hours later. […]

Nutrition and single parents….part 3 of 3

Thank you, single parents who commented on my two-part blog series a couple of weeks ago. I’m quoting Amanda from that blog series because what she said merits front-and-center attention: “Robyn, I know what you’re going through, and thanks so much for writing on this critical topic! There’s very little information online about how to […]

Nutrition and single moms, part 2 of 2

Even though I am doing the very best I can for my kids’ health, even though I run a health-oriented web site and write books and speak all over the U.S., full time……even though there is no junk food in my house….I cannot control everything my children eat. “Controlling” what the kids eat is a […]
