Posted by Felicia Lanier on

I don’t know about you guys but I struggle with effective discipline with my kids. There are some days when I feel like my kids are out of control.

I loved the view behind the guest couch. Remember? It was a night view of the city and I dreamed of living in a city with those same views. I’m from a small town and we didn’t have buildings so tall they touched the blue skies. In fact, I think we only had one tall building in downtown Toledo. Like millions of black homes, Essence, Ebony and Jet Magazine...
