Courtney said...

I'm very big on respect. Growing up my dad always told me that in order to get respect you must show respect. My kids are a wee young, but I show them to treat each other nicely because one doesn't like it when the other one is mean and vice versa.


Dad taught us respect by modeling it for us everyday.


Verging on 40 said...

Children give back what they are given. If you respect them and teach them to be polite they will reciprocate. My father always said please and thank you and treated me very respectfully. I in turn treat others that way.


Cindy B. of Montana said...

My Dad showed respect to others and was a model to us. It wasn't just to other adults, but to kids, too. He respected us and showed us that we were important to him. He didn't talk negatively about other people...coworkers, boss, neighbors. He found the good things they did and respected that.


sweeps mommy said...

My dad taught me respect by modeling it for me. He always told me to greet adults and other people when I first see them.


Monica@MommyBrainReports said...

My daddy always taught me that respect was key in any relationship. He was a perfect model of that. He taught me to speak politely, and shake someones hand when I met them. I just hope I can instill in my children the values my dad taught me!


danielle said...

My Dad taught me to give respect and you will get it back ten fold. Respecting others shows a sign of maturity. I have a 3 1/2 year old daughter. When we go to to playground she is always respectful of others, she doesn't ever hit,raise her voice or throw tantrums. I believe my husband and I have shown her the right way and we are very proud of our daughter!


Carolyn G said...

My dad's best advice was to treat others like you want to be treated. He taught me that it doesn't hurt to be nice and respectful and if you are nice and respectful you will be happier.


janetfaye said...

My father taught me respect by the way he treated my mother, my sister and I and his friends. He was kind and thoughtful and he never hurt our feelings and if he accidentally did he would apologize. He taught me to go out of my way to treat someone, whoever they are, with respect and to not judge them or make assumptions.


auntrene said...

I think my parents taught us 6 kids respect by Example. They raised us to be respectful of everyone and everything. There was a heavy hand and a loving heart with my dad. My mom has always treated not only strangers and others Respect but also my dad and our kids.. You learn what you live I guess is what I am trying to say.
Thanks for the chance this is an amazing campaign

CONTEST CLOSED!!! Give Respect - Family Violence Prevention Fund Macy's Gift Card Giveaway

It is Father's Day and in honor of Father's Day I have teamed up with Respect! to bring to you this amazing giveaway! One winner will receive a $50 gift card to Macy's and ten winners will receive the Respect! bracelet from Macy's!
What is Respect!
"For three decades, the Family Violence Prevention Fund (FVPF) has worked to end violence against women, children and families everywhere. Instrumental in developing the landmark Violence Against Women Act passed by Congress in 1994, reauthorizing it in 2005 and most recently, for conceiving the International Violence Against Women Act, FVPF is known for its model training and education programs to enlist influencers, leaders, and new allies, including men and youth, in proven solutions. FVPF's reputation for transforming the way health care providers, police, judges, employers and others support survivors and work to end violence and its success in building leadership within communities to ensure that violence prevention efforts become self-sustaining has earned several national awards, including support from major foundations, Congress, and the White House."

The RESPECT! Campaign℠
"The RESPECT! Campaign is the Family Violence Prevention Fund's (FVPF) latest initiative to advance a national movement to promote healthy relationships through positive role modeling and respect education. By individuals everywhere to be part of the solution, the RESPECT! Campaign provides everyday tools and resources to help teach young people about respect in relationships. Through this campaign, the Family Violence Prevention Fund seeks to amplify a national conversation about the critical role that parents, teachers, coaches, and other living, breathing role models to young people have to play in helping all of our sons and daughters shape a world that is free of relationship violence."


There is little that is more important than an safe and violence free home life for the well being and emotional stability of our children. Children in violent homes grow up with fear and violence in their personalities. It usually will stunt them emotionally! Let us support awareness for family RESPECT!.

When you visit Respect! and send a FREE Father's Day E-Card then Geoffrey Bean Gives Back will donate $25 for each and every card that is sent! It is easy and did we mention FREE!

Please leave a comment on this post on how your dad taught you respect or how you teach respect to your kids.
Only 1 comment per person, please. From the comments left a random comment will be drawn for the $50 Gift Card to Macy's. Ten additional comments will be drawn for the Macy's Respect! bracelet.

Diaper Dude Review


Having a child with many needs and demands, a father must be prepared. In the home, I have instant access to all my children's necessities at my disposal. Diaper's, drinks, medicine, clothing, food, toys, or anything else my child might need. But when it comes time to go out of the safety zone (that is home), I always forget something that my kid needs when I am packing for the outing. The only thing more frustrating than my little girl screaming for a drink, is realizing that knuckle-head dad forgot to pack it.
It's bad enough having to carry everything around in a pink frilly diaper bag that my wife bought. None-the-less, I used it because they were helpful in keeping everything organized. To save face, I used to try and load the babies stuff in my gym bag, but everything ended all mixed up and it took forever to find what she needed. Not to mention it was way too bulky and awkward to carry.
I recently found a Man's diaper bag from Diaper Dude. What a God sent! Finally, a children's carry-all designed for the father's need. They have a wide variety for Dad to choose from. I chose the EcoDude, since it is made from recycled material. I am trying to buy more products that are easier on the environment. This Diaper Dude bag has room for just about anything I would ever need to carry with me for my little girl. As I said before, I always forget some type of baby staple while packing for an outing with the little one. This EcoDude makes getting prepared easy for me. It actually has a "Fool" proof check list printed on the inside. I will no longer feel like an idiot for forgetting something like a change of clothes. That's worth the cost alone! Not having to rely on Mom to tell me what to pack is empowering. Literally, I use my EcoDude every day, and I can truthfully say that I am SO HAPPY that I have it!

DiaperDude's bags have a spot for all my child's needs. There are many different zipper or Velcro compartments. A place for everything and everything in it's place. As if all that wasn't enough, EcoDude comes with a portable, folding changing mat. It also has a padded shoulder strap that is comfortable to wear, even when carrying my daughter in my arms. It even has room for some of Daddy's needs, like ear plugs! But all kidding aside, it also has a pocket for my cell phone on the shoulder strap. The backing is padded for comfort, and has a breathable mesh fabric to help with that sweaty daddy syndrome. There are rings on the sides to clip on accessories, good for keys or anything else you can think of. Diaper Dude has a nice variety of helpful products. They also update with new products often. So even if I had every product that they supplied, I would need to periodically go back to the Diaper Dude site to check out whats new.

They are focused mainly on the needs of today's father, but they don't forget to keep mommy happy. They have a whole line called DivaBags, which I am sure that any mother would be more than pleased to receive one. They have accessories and even have a couple MiniDudes, which are compact waist pouches that are useful for carrying those kids necessities that are used frequently. Their line varies from casual to bussiness styles.

All in all, with Diaper Dude, I know that every Dad will be able to find something that they would use daily. Dad's, go get yourself a Diaper Dude and stop using those frilly, girly patterned bags that the wife buys. And if there are any Moms who are reading this, don't make your hubby carry your pretty luggage anymore. Get him a bag that he won't have to hide in public.

I was lucky to be able to have a small Q&A with the founder of Diaper Dude, Chris Pegula:

1. Do you have any other suggestions about items you think are needed when packing, besides the things listed on the inside flap of the Diaper Dude bags?
You know I was going to answer no but I just realized we should have included hand sanitizer. That is something that is a no brainer.

2. How long has Diaper Dude been in business?
This coming Father’s Day ’09 will mark our 6th year in business

3. What did your family think when you came up with the Diaper Dude concept?
They were totally supportive and excited. My wife always comments that I am the idea guy since I am constantly coming up with something new practically every day whether it’s a new dad product or concept for a movie/TV show or everyday solutions to make life easier. IT just so happens that Diaper Dude came at the right time and I seized the moment.

4. Do you plan on expanding Diaper Dude, or starting up any other father related sites?
I do. Stay tuned.

5. How often do you introduce new products on Diaper Dude?
That’s a tough one to answer since I really work on instinct not a set timeline. I always want things done yesterday so it would be smart if I would work on a timeline but part of my creativity comes out of working on last minute projects.

6. What do see for the future of Diaper Dude?
My goal is to make Diaper Dude a brand where Dads can feel like part of a community that supports being active and as much involved in parenting as possible. We are working on our site as a social network for Dad’s to share, ask questions, etc so they can feel supported in this new journey they are about to embark on. Being a new parent is both exciting and scary. I hope Diaper Dude will assist in easing that fear.

Today, I am proud to say that I am a Diaper Dude Dad!

If you are not aware that today, Friday May 15th, is National Endangered Species Day. We should take the time to be conscious of the natural gifts that we have, and that we could lose if we do not preserve our environment. We have to be aware of what we are doing to this world. Teaching our children to make good choices is necessary in order to live healthy and happy lives, and to preserve our environment.

They can inform your children about Endangered species that your they should learn about, and can have fun at the same time.

I like that these products are environmentally friendly and my little girl likes having fun with the games and coloring. So grab your kid and check out Kiss MY Face Kids!

CONTEST CLOSED!!! Time Out Spots Review and Giveaway!!!

I was introduced to Time Out Spots recently. I recieved this cool shirt that lets everyone know that I need a Time Out. It is funny as the day is long. When I am wearing it, everyone asks me if I have been a "Bad Boy". Here I am being put into Time Out by my daughter. Don't I look so pitiful? I like to wear it when I need some quiet time around the house. When my daughter starts bombarding me with questions and comments, I just point at the shirt and it reminds her that "Daddy Needs a Time Out". It is an easy way to get some peace and quiet. They come in several colors for Dads. Green is one of my favorite colors, and suits me well.
The Daddy shirts are available in several sizes and are sure to bring a few laughs. I think that they make nice gifts for anyone with a sense of humor.

Time Out Spots also has a Time Out Mats for kids! Its a little circle, and when my little girl need a time out she knows where to go. It is a nice thing to have that turns into an auto-response from my daughter. So when I say TIME OUT, she B-lines it to her circle. She DOES NOT LIKE IT, but she knows exactly what its for. They make indoor and outdoor timeout mats. So you can bring one with you on outings with the family, and your child knows what punishment he/she is in for if they act out. Time Out Spots are useful in disciplining your child, without having to traumatize them with their nose against the wall.


Time Out Spots has several other products that parents would like and some that kids will like as well. They even have MAT's for your PETS. I would suggest that you take a second and check it out.
With Mothers Day coming up, why not get her one of these "Mommy Needs a Time Out" tee's. She will get a nice comfortable shirt and a bunch of laughs from it. We all know that Mommies need their Time Out's!

So here's your chance to win a Daddy Needs a Time Out Tee. I know that I love mine! Follow the entry rules and you to could be in Time Out! Good Luck.

My Precious Kid Review

Is your youngster quick like a bunny? Do your kids run off to explore the minute you turn your head? Do your kids like to play hide and seek when they shouldn't? Well, my little girl has sent me into a panic on more than one occasion. When my daughter and I are in a store she is curious about every product that catches her eye. Usually the products on the next isle over, just out of sight! I like to give my little girl just enough space to explore and learn, but she pushes the boundaries sometimes a bit too far. I am calm as long as she is not around anything dangerous, and she is stays in my sights. 

I recently received an item from My Precious Kid, that I believe could be useful to any parent with young children. It is the Child Locator.

This product is shaped like a little Bear that you can put on your child's shoes or clothing. The Bear has an ON/OFF switch so it can be turned OFF when not in use. The switch is in a place on the Bear that a child is not likely to be able to turn it OFF when attached. There is a remote unit that a parent can carry. It has a key chain ring-loop on it so you can use it as a key chain or hook it anywhere convenient. When the Bear is ON, you push a button on the remote, and it will signal the Bear. The Bear will send out a loud, high pitch sound that you will be able to hear from very far away. I tested the signal strength in and the remote went through several walls, and also through the second story floor in my home. The manufacturer promotes an 150 ft. range between remote and receiver. Personally, I wouldn't like to stretch it that far. I am protective of my little princess! But for me, I like it for when we go to the store, shopping trip's, or are in crowds. I can give her enough space to feel independent, without having to truly panic when she gets out of sight. Now when she sneaks off , instead of panicking,I always know which direction that I need to go. 

By NO means is this product meant to be used in place of parental supervision! But as a parent, I know that kids will be kids. In my experience, children will always try to expand their boundaries. I do not like to suffocate my daughter, because I want her to grow up to be an independent young lady with self confidence. I love feeling needed and will always be there for her, but I don't like to hover over her like some oppressive cloud.

So if your child is a wandering spirit. Or if you just like to always win at Hide and Seek, I would suggest the Child Locator's for parents that are on-the-go. They now have the Child Locator Alert Blue, which will automatically chirp when the child wanders further than 20 to 30 feet away. NICE!!!!

My Precious Kid has a wide variety of products, from Home Safety, Safety Education, to helpful Baby Gear. As a parent who is concerned for my child's safety and well being, I am glad that I was introduced to this helpful site, My Precious Kid!

CLOSED - Barbasol Giveaway









Back when I was a child, I remember my father teaching me how to shave. He would let me use a comb instead of a razor. I thought it was the coolest thing in the world to squirt the shave cream out of the red and white striped can, and smear it all over my face. I remember my face felt nice and soft afterward.

Barbasol is inexpensive and works like a charm! My father and my grand-father used it for as long as I can remember. I still have a baby face and rarely have to shave, maybe twice a week at the most. So I don't feel the need to spend a whole lot of money on those "Designer" brands. Later in life, when I have to shave more often it will strengthen the notion of saving money even more.

Barbosol has several type's of shave cream that is for men with different shaving needs. Shave cream's, Gel's, After-shave's, Non-Aerosol shave cream's, and lots of other's to choose from. So if you are frugal, and still like a comfortable shave, get back to your root's with the Original Barbasol shave creams.

Barbasol is generously doing a giveaway of six cans of Original Barbasol, to one winner, to represent that you can buy six can's of Barbasol for the cost of one comparable can of another brand. Today, I know that saving money is important to my families financial stability. So if I can cut the costs of my grooming products, (and still get a close shave) I am all for it!

Piggy Paint


Piggy Paint is giving away a

$20 gift card for ANYTHING from their site!


"I’ve always hated the thought of my kiddos putting their hands in their mouths after I painted their nails with traditional kid polishes. Not only did the ingestion of the chemicals worry me, but the smell nearly left me light-headed after painting two sets of fingernails and toenails. One day while we were painting nails over a foam plate, my daughter dropped a glob of her solvent-based polish onto the plate. Shortly after, the paint began to bubble and “ate” through the plate. I looked in dismay at the hole in the plate and decided to test all of her other “kid” polishes on the foam. Within minutes, ALL of the solvent-based polishes began to bubble and eventually left big holes in the plate. From that day on, I decided that any flammable substance that could eat through foam was unacceptable for my children’s fingernails, which would inevitably end up in their mouths. My quest was on, and Piggy Paint™ was born. As you may have guessed, our polish is NOT flammable and sits beautifully on the unaffected foam. We hope you enjoy this water-based polish that is specially formulated of natural ingredients. Finally, a kid-friendly polish without the accompanying drawbacks of traditional polishes. It is free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate and acetone... and made in the USA! From my heart to yours, I hope Piggy Paint™ takes the worry out of painting your little one’s nails and puts the fun back into this enjoyable activity you can share with your daughter and other precious girls in your life."

Cupid Corn Cupcake Soap!

Retail Value $12.00 !!

"Serah's soaps are each beautifully handcrafted using some of the finest natural and organic ingredients. Each bar of soap is handcrafted by human hands! Our soap doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils. That means your skin is left feeling softer and smoother. Our soap base is 100% real soap and not a combination of detergents and or surfactants. Our glycerin soap base consists of pure vegetable oils (no animal testing or products) and contains a high percentage of glycerin. Glycerin is known for its property to keep on moisturizing the skin as the glycerin particles in the pores of the skin keep attracting atmospheric humidity. Other moisturizers and emollients are also used to ensure a gentle, non-drying cleansing bar. You can really feel the difference in our soap. Hand crafted natural soap has to be experienced to be fully appreciated. We offer 100% pure soap combined with wonderful fragrances, love, and imagination just for you!"

No Cry Solution Books

is giving away

1 copy of the "No Cry Discipline Solution
Valued at $16.95

"Nearly all parents acknowledge that while raising children can be the best and most rewarding job of their lives, discipline is often the most complicated, challenging, and frustrating aspect of parenthood. But how do parents promote good behavior? How can they be firm without shouting and having their child (or themselves), end up in tears? And, does discipline really have to be unpleasant to be effective? In The No-Cry Discipline Solution (McGraw-Hill, June 2007), bestselling parenting author and mother of four, Elizabeth Pantley, shows how discipline can be approached in a positive, even fun way, and how to tailor discipline techniques to each child – without the whining, tantrums, and tears. Tested by hundreds of families worldwide and in every childrearing situation: working families, single & stay-at-home parents, twins and multiples, and children of varying age and temperament, No-Cry Discipline offers thought-provoking advice on the role of parents, ways they can better understand their children, and practical, achievable information that can make life easier. Pantley includes dozens of ‘real life’ examples and tips from parents worldwide."
