With Encanto finally arriving on Disney+, we are excited to release our review and FAQ for parents!

In this article, I’ll cover everything parents need to know, as well as share my thoughts on the movie.

I’ve read a lot of pregnancy books, and a lot of them are all quite similar.
Therefore, when I come across something that takes a little different approach, I welcome it with open arms.
And well, Dude, You’re Gonna Be a Dad!: How to Get (Both of You) Through the Next 9 Months fits the bill – it’s different. Within a few chapters, you start to realize why this book is seen as so controversial.

Whether it’s from seeing them first thing in the morning or catching them smiling while they’re sleeping, that little grin surely brightens up our day!
Therefore, we’ve gathered 70+ quotes about babies smiling, and we’re delighted to share them with you below. These also happen to make great photo captions on websites like Facebook or Instagram, as well as cards and photobooks!
If you want to change the way you think and feel, start by changing the words that you tell yourself.
How you choose to think about things rewires the brain and changes your subconscious mind. If you constantly tell yourself negative things, your brain will subconsciously look for evidence to support your theory, and prove yourself right.
The opposite is also true – when you start focusing on the positive – even if you don’t entirely believe it at first, over time you’ll find your mood improves, and your outlook on your life improves as well.
Make an effort to repeat some of these positive affirmations to yourself each and every day, and watch how it transforms your life!
We have broken these up into a few different categories, so pick the ones that matter most to you!

Over the last 10 years, I have been fortunate to work with many bright people from all walks of life. From tech startup entrepreneurs to the ‘millionaire next door’ types who carefully saved their way to financial independence, I’ve learned a lot.
The one thing in common is that people think about money differently – and were taught differently by their parents.
In this article, I’m going to briefly cover some of these common values, many of which you may want to consider adopting passing along to your children as well.
These days, it feels like parents are busier than ever.
Work carries over into home, you’re constantly running between the store, appointments and meetings, and of course you can’t give up quality time with the kids.
It can be stressful, and cause you to feel overwhelmed. Time with your partner may be sacrificed, and you may not have any safe outlets for your stress.
