My small people — I can’t get enough of them. I’ll snuggle with them any time, anywhere, no matter what. I love to snuggle with them, wherever. I will take all the snuggling I can get. They are glorious little snugglers.
I actually used YouTube as a visual for my kids to show them that strangers can be anybody. They can look like our neighbors — like ordinary people. We don’t trust people we just don’t know. Just seeing that it can happen to anyone, at any store that we go to. The right thing to do is to kick and scream and do your best to get away.
I had my boys in soccer at 4 years old. I felt that it was a great age. You do have to know your child. I really do think that it’s a wonderful way to be a part of something, and know what you can do — and learn how to believe in yourself.
I think it’s very important for kids to play competitive sports because it teaches them so much. My daughter plays basketball and soccer and tennis, and my boys play volleyball and football and golf. There are so many life lessons to learn from playing sports. You learn how to play on a team, and you learn about winning and losing. You also make friends, and get excellent exercise. For myself, I try to incorporate exercise with my kids when I get home from work.
