I want to talk about the Law Of Attraction and how, right or wrong, good or bad, we are using it all the time.

Whenever our minds are focused on thought patterns positive or negative they manifest. The thing is if you want to apply it to your daily life and see miracles happen, then there are certain things you must know to realize . . .

. . . and it doesn't matter if you internet market, brick and mortar, provide service or want to play the guitar. The law of attraction works constantly.


Oh, yes . . . this could be you and because your thoughts are focusing on the lack then you could be . . .

attracting struggle in your life!
attracting bad relationships and/or having them go bad!
attracting a job that frustrates you or you hate!

I didn't attract high gas prices or the economy tanking did I?

Well, maybe yes; maybe no but I can tell you that whatever you focus on happens. You've heard the saying “careful what you wish for; you may get it!”

Or maybe you're one of the ones using it in your daily life to actually . . .

attract money into your life
attract the mate of your dreams
attract nothing but the best

Why struggle to have what you don't want when you can have what you want without struggle?

As a single father you're torn with having to work and be away from your children or staying at home and working from there to support you kids. I know because I've been there too.

I've tried so many different ideas and techniques and frankly, well . . .

When Your Kids Hit Puberty

Hi Single Dad,

Is puberty right around the corner for you; with your kids? Well hang on because everything you thought about your son or daughter is about to change . . . drastically. Fortunately for you, you'll survive it but a lot of it will be measured by how much time you've spent going over the points in my book Artfully Raising Children.

As you can see, my kids are well past the puberty stage of their lives now. They both attend the local college here in town and all is well.

My son graduated in 2007 and my daughter in 2006. But there was a time when they entered into puberty where I thought I would lose my ever loving mind. Of course girls go through it much differently than boys do. Let's start with the girls first . . .

My daughter hit puberty around 12 years of age. I know because she argued about everything, she had these outbursts over something she hardly ever reacted before to and she was a lot more somber than normal. I mean, she was always stubborn but she started to way overboard it seemed.

I went from being a SUPER-DAD to a STUPID-DAD almost overnight. Can you relate to what I'm saying if you've already gone through it? I mean I wondered where my sweet little princess went to and if she would ever return to me.

Here were some of the patterns you should be looking for and they are:

I have to say these things scared me but I started to see a pattern developing and this is how I handled it and you can too with minimal damage to house and hearth. LOL

You want to approach her and ask her how are things going in her life, you know like at school, her friends, or her homework, like you've always done only this time read her body language and see if there is something that is just slightly different.

For example, if normally when you ask her that question and she reacts gregariously, that is to say really animated like her eyes sparkling and her hands waving around, but this time she is NOT doing that at all, you can figure out that there IS something else going on in her life that is really bugging her.

Now how do you get her to open up to you without her exploding or becoming upset with you and her own reason for being? What you could do is once you ask her the question, read her body language and determine that there is something else that's bothering her, you talk about how things were for you when you were her age.

I would begin by just looking at her things so as not to draw too much attention to her and then tell her how, "when I was your age I would feel a certain way when a girl or boy would . . . " and then move into your story.

Look, the point is even if it is not related to her problem, this will relax her somewhat and move her to become open, if even for a little bit. You can then physically move closer to her and then looking at her and doing the things you used to do when she was a baby like stroking her hair, holding her close and instead of talking, listening to her.

The act of holding her and all shows her that you are still her loving parent and once establishing that, you can then question her again as to what is really bothering her and that you can probably help her solve it, or at least getting her to open up and you telling her that you are there for her, no matter what.

It is those kinds of acts that gives her the space she needs but also giving her the assurance of knowing that you love her no matter what; that you're there for her and that you love her always even though she is growing up. It's that connection to the past yet knowing that she must move forward with her life and still having daddy by her side. This is important now and in how she will view all the men in her life so be there for her, always.

Even if she acts a bit psycho sometimes and you're a guy thinking, "what do I say to her" or "what did I do now". It isn't about you all the time dad even if she makes you feel that way.

So remember to:

All this will always keep you as a Super Dad in her eyes.

Next letter we'll cover how boys go through puberty and the differences between the sexes.
Hang in there single dad; you're doing fine!

Creating a home-based after school program

Hello Reader,

I know it has been awhile since my last post but if you're a single parent, you completely understand how it takes so much time raising children; no matter what age they are.

My daughter is turning 19 in April and my son is 17 last August. Guess what? It just doesn't end because now there is college to work up and through for both!

For me, since they are so close in age, only 16 months apart, everything happens altogether within a year of each other. What I mean is my daughter just graduated last June and now my son graduates this June.

It has always been a constant stream of activities or obligations that never stop. See, if you're smart enough or lucky enough you'll have your children at least two years apart. That way you don't have to have it all one right after each other.

Well, anyway while we're on the subject of two children close in age, lets talk about what kind of activities you can do with your kids, especially after school, that offers them a learning experience too.

So, your son's or daughter's school does not offer any extracurricular activities. You are worried of depriving your child of all that extra knowledge and fun. What should you do?

First realize that after school activities needn't be taught in a school-like environment by professional teachers in a structured and timely manner.

There is a lot YOU can do to support your child's academic, physical and social development. Don't be too concerned about formal programs and the fact is that many of our children are already over-scheduled with homework alone.

Today children have more and more advanced homework than I ever had as a child. Also if you don't have computers and calculators that weren't even invented when I was growing up today for your kid, you are at a disadvantage. I digress . . .

Obviously, school is top priority for children. They need to go to school, and finish their homework. They should then do their daily reading or writing work etc. This may take about 30-60 minutes but these days can take up to two or two and a half hours to accomplish.

I always gave time for my young children to de-stress from school a little bit by doing activities with them.

In the course of their daily work, your child may develop certain academic preferences and interests. In that case, you can try and find a program in a college or a community center that will help her and encourage her to try it out.

In the age of the Internet, information is really not a rarity. Allow him to use the net to find more information about thing that he likes. Encouraging the child to do independent research to gain in-depth knowledge is something that no formal program does.

If you are concerned about the lack of social life, enroll him or her in a club - a reading club maybe. Visit public libraries or even the theatre, if your child is interested. It is not necessary for your child to make friends with children his own age. A parent-child book club is another interesting option. If you can round up a number of like-minded children and their parents, you may well start your own after-school program.

If you're not ready or willing to organized a group activity, look to your community. Many or most communities offer many programs children love getting involved in or programs emphasizing social problems.

Your child can get their first real taste of suffering, charity and community help from such experiences. Volunteering for clean-up sessions, adult education programs etc could be a real eye-opener for your child. The lessons they learn become invaluable to them and something they can carry into adult life too.

If physical activity or the lack of it is of major concern, then enroll your child for some dancing classes or hiking activities. If organized sports are impossible to get, try enrolling them in a gym. They may find friends there and may take to the treadmill, lifting weights or wall climbing. It's safer than climbing a tree, isn't it?

Remember too that your child does not necessarily have to be a part of an organized group to benefit from after-school activities. There are various avenues open in front of you really and sometimes doing things around the house is great. That's what I did for my kids; give them a routine of chores to do which they still do, except a bit better.

Roping in the enthusiasm of your children in daily household activities like cooking, cleaning etc can also provide them with a refreshing extracurricular experience. Moreover, in my experience it improves family ties too.

I hope this article helps you in designing your own after school activities that doesn't require tons of cash or time that most single parents don't have the luxury of having. See you on the next post.

Man Would I Like to Be on the Big O's Show

Hey everyone and all single dads reading this post.

I commend all dads that didn't take "I'm leaving you" from your ex wife to be interpreted as "And I control how the kids are raised and you can only see them. . ." Well, you get my drift.

You fought for full time custody and you were awarded that privilege by the judge. Just because you're a male doesn't mean you can't be the nurturing parent. I tell you what, your kids sure know the difference and they don't care whether it's mommy or daddy, as long as they are being nurtured.

My daughter is a legal young adult now and my son will be next year, but I remember when they were very little how we would go to the park together.

Oh, let me preface this with saying that I gave up my "musical career" as a traveling musician and there were times that I had to go on welfare because where I lived at the time, jobs were scarce. I have to admit to you how much that ate at me and it finally caused a breakdown, but that's another story.

My point there is that you sacrifice to be with your kids and you do whatever it takes to nurture and be with them, especially if their mother abandoned them either by choice or by death. Anyway, I digress . . .

We would go to the park and I remember how much joy and pleasure I would experience watching them go up the ladder and slide down, and how proud they felt in doing so.

"Look at me Dada" and then the other would chime in, "Look at me too!" They felt so proud of themselves and radiated all that positive feelings, even when I wasn't feeling so positive with where my life was leading me at the time.

Their smiles, laughter and joy would promptly take me out of any funk I might have felt at the time, if indeed I was feeling down and funky. Of course that has a different connotation today.

We would stop at the market on the way back and pick up food for dinner but I always watched the Oprah Winfrey show. Truth be known I used to watch Oprah way back when she was basically doing a Donahue type show. Running up and down the aisles and all that.

So I would lay my kids down so they could take a nap and I would go and watch the Oprah Winfrey Show. I figured that maybe I could learn something about raising a child or child diseases or something related to children.

Well sometimes there might have been something about a medical condition children were experiencing, but never anything about how to raise a child today so they grow up with the three R's ingrained in their little souls, and they are


This is something I propose to do. I would love to be on the Oprah Winfrey Show as a guest and teach the principles on how to raise a child today; from a father's point of view. A father who raised his children by himself gathering and learning what it really takes to be a parent.

The fact is that we do everything different than women, but we have the same loving and nurturing components that women do and with some guidance, we become very skilled at it.

The bottom line is to make sure that the children are as fulfilled as they can possibly be in order for them to grow up as respectful, responsible and reliable grown-ups.

Why Oprah? Because she has an immense audience and the truth be known there are many males who secretly watch Oprah, like I do, or er, did . . .ahem . . .

Write to Oprah and let her know you want the "Super Single Dad" on there so she can grill him and ask him the pertinent questions on raising a child, and how he went about raising his children, artfully.
See you on the next post.
