As a mom and blogger and wife and friend and daughter and sister and every other hat I have in my arsenal I struggle with prioritizing each day. I’ve gotten better and closing the computer and walking away to do something fun or chat on the phone or even eat a meal. But what about those days when there are too many things pulling you in the same direction as the same time. These quotes should guide you to make the right decisions, the right turns for the right reasons.

Hallmark Kids Collection Cards to Encourage and Cheer Kids On Review and Giveaway-CLOSED

Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Groundhogs Day; there’s a day for everyone and everything except for the most important thing in our lives, our children. Children need a special, “It’s all about me” day sometimes too. Hallmark is helping parents do that with their new Kids Collection; a line of cards and gifts designed specifically to cheer kids on, cheer them up and make them smile! Created to help adults’ encouraging words stick, they are little reminders to a child that you’re rooting for them every step of the way.

With 3 kids I’ve realized I don’t praise and encourage enough. There is always so much going on I tend to focus on things that need to be done rather on the things that HAVE been done. Report cards came out this week; straight A’s for Sabreena and very goods for Shaun. They haven’t been rewarded or patted on the back. Along with a card for each of them I think they deserve some special time with mom and dad. Realizing that encouragement for teens like Sabreena might need to differ from encouragement to younger ones like Shae or Shaun, Hallmark developed cards for all different stages of childhood and all different kinds of kids.

Need some help talking to your kids? Hallmark spokeskid and author Alec Greven is offering tips on encouragement and being your kids cheering section. His goal is to help grown-ups make their encouraging words resonate.
