How much romantic stuff is too much?

Being it’s Valentine’s Day, I thought discussing public display of affection would be fitting. 
Parents often ask how much affection should be shared in front of your kiddos. I say that it’s healthy to touch and hold, but where do you draw the line?
The line should be drawn by asking yourself this question, “What would you think is appropriate for your child to do in public?” If you wouldn’t want to see your child going that far in public, than you shouldn’t be doing it in front of your child.
This goes for anything as the old saying is, “Monkey See, Monkey Do!”


Tranquil Parenting Open House and Ribbon Cutting

Although Tranquil Parenting (AKA Tranquil Studio, Inc.) has been in operation since December of 2014 with content dating back as far as 1992, it has never been so complete with it’s parenting curriculum as it is today. For this reason, Sonja Howell and her Board Members found it fitting to celebrate the new non-profit and open to the general public status.

Being presented during the ribbon cutting was a surprise and a pure joy full of validation from the State of Michigan. Knowing the niche is fully needed and supported by the community.

We feel very appreciative of everyone backing the combination of art, education and parent coaching.
