How to raise your children to be good people.





Wanted to share this story about my oldest son, Zach:

Zach told me just the other day how grateful he is for all we have given him and for all that he has.  And..that he appreciates that me and my Kate “cooked awesome food and snacks for him and his friends last night.”  Then he told me-as he stepped out of the car to interview at Friendly’s:

“I try to be as humble as possible for all that I have.”

Mind you he describes himself as a minimalist..never asking for anything but what he needs.

All I want to accomplish in this journey as a mama is to raise good and happy children who will be good and happy adults.

My friend KT once said to me….when she thinks of Zach and how he lives his life…she often says to her children in given situations:


I think my Zach teaches me something everyday.

About Kim

My name is Kim Marino and I have been practicing as a licensed speech and language pathologist since 1993. I work on Long Island providing diagnostic evaluations and services to children from birth to age 21. My experience is vast and am proud to say that I work with children that may present with articulation and phonological concerns, oral motor feeding concerns, Down Syndrome feeding, cognitive rehabilitation, auditory processing delays, receptive language delays, cleft palate feeding and sound development and expressive language delays. Most importantly, I am the mother of four amazing children and am happily married to my childhood sweetheart. I feel blessed to have my four children and so lucky to share this journey in life with my husband. I always had it somewhere in my head that I wanted to develop a blog or a website of some sort so that I could provide families with an additional that parents could help their little ones become a better communicator. And as I was developing this blog....I realized that I also needed to share the stories about my life and my children....and the funny things along the way that help to keep me smiling. Whether you are a working mother or not...finding balance between home, children and life can be a challenge....I hope that my blog helps to bring a smile to your face..and also some tools to help you help your little or big one. I hope you enjoy! Kim

    Love, love, love this story! I pray every day about helping my children to learn kindness and live that way every day. I think my almost-three-year-old can nearly recite what we talk about every day… “Let the things you say and the things you do be kind.” Thank you for sharing! How proud you must be!
