Don't Fret the Sweat! The Tween years!

My Grandmother used the word Fret-as in don't Fret about things, don't worry about things that can be taken care of in some way.  I kinda like that word because she said it and it
is true!  The tween years with kids growing bodies is one of those times not to Fret. 
The makers of Degree ®, Dove ® and Suave ® deodorant (Unilever ®) have a great new community on Facebook called Don't Fret the Sweat. On this community page Moms can share your thoughts on all those new experiences with your tween.  The increased hormone levels, growth spurts, and strange new odors your tween experiences! ( And the Mom too!) Parents can help your tween to stay calm and comfortable during this time of awkward moments by talking and listening. For those strange new odors tween have during this time of puberty, there are great products from Unilever to help control those odors.  In my household we are fans of Degree ®, Dove ® and Suave ®.  My girls like Degree ®, I am the Suave ®, Dove ® fan.  Daily hygiene is a must at this age and beyond!  Tween self esteem at this time in their lives can be a little easier with family support and the use of products to keep themselves clean and fresh.  Kids notice odors, as well as the other kids noticing!  From gym class to the classroom tween odors can change, not for the better, I might add!  On the Facebook Page there are tips from experts in this field.
The Don't Fret The Sweat website  offers Facts, Experts, and Product information that is all very useful in navigating this time with your children.  Both the website and Facebook page I find to be a great help in finding answers and knowing there are other Mom's out there in the same situation. The site offers tips, guidance, insights into what is happening now with tween bodies, and finding the right products to help them feel comfortable. As parents we want our kids to look and feel their best.
Here are the links to help!!!

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews. My kitchen sink has never shined so much, the bathrooms are cleaner, and now Soft Scrub 4-in-1 Toilet Care is now here! It is new, it smells nice, and it is so easy to use. Just clip it on the side of the bowl, make sure it is in the flow of water when the toil

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara. Easy to understand directions are on the back of the box, and don't forget to cut out the Box Tops For Education Label before you toss the cardboard into your recycling bin.   How to make this warm hearty meal for your family: open a box of Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara Brown 1 pound ground beef in a skillet. I used organic ground beef. In that same skillet, add and stir in: 1 cup o

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
