Who MADE this Website, you ask? This MOTHER OF SEVEN TELLS: THE Awful TRUTH!
Caricature by Jim VanderKyle
Elliott says,"WHY DO I OFFER THIS WEBSITE TO THE WORLD FOR FREE? You can either learn from your own mistakes or from other people's mistakes. I've made plenty of mistakes already. Why should YOU have to make the same mistakes?
So many people have asked me, 'How did you ever raise seven kids?' My biggest secret is: I LOVE them, and they know it! I enjoy sharing what I've learned along the way-about what works and what doesn't work with children." (I know, I tried them all!)
On these pages you'll enjoy some of Ruth's cartoons, anecdotes
and tips for moms and dads that have come out of her experience with abundant
motherhood! WRITE ME! I LOVE hearing from you!
Ruth is one of the directors of EDU DESIGNS, the 501(c)(3) non-profit charity,dedicated "to produce and distribute multimedia materials for the education, motivation and character development of children". A mother of seven children, and retired after decades in the animation industry, she now volunteers her time and expertise to help children everywhere.
is a NonProfit doing just that. An all volunteer Organization allows 100% of donations to go to projects that help children through programs that reinforce Math Standards plus provide Character building educational materials. I know you care about kids or you wouldn't be visiting this site.
"If people had to pay for what Mothers do, the world would be bankrupt!"

"The great man is he who does not lose his childlike heart."
"If we are to reach real peace in this world... we shall have to begin with children."
– Mohandas Gandhi
Maybe that's how the world got into all this trouble financially lately! (Now that we're all having to PAY for what mother's used to do for FREE, huh?)! Just a thought. What do YOU think? Hey - there's still lots of love in the world. Just look at your kids.
I dedicate this website to mom's (and their kids) everywhere! We need all
the support we can get! And for you DAD's out there who do their part, and some who even have to fulfill the job of 'mom', too - my respect goes out
to you! The World NEEDS YOU! Being a parent is the hardest job in the world. That's
why I'm assembling all the tips on Mothering I've learned over the years
to help during the times it can be overwhelming. Like, everyday, maybe? One day when I was discouraged about the messes I had to conquer, I
thought about Mother Teresa, and all the hard work she did. That's when
I realized - if she could take on a big job like that, how could I complain?
"LOVE IS A MESSY BUSINESS!" -David
Elliott, father of seven
Doing in a spirit of exploration, curiosity and fun is where the real creativity lies. And all creativity makes a mess of one sort or another. You can't avoid it if you want your kids to learn, grow and become what they were meant to be. The PLUS side is that YOU are
an impact on the future through the work you do with your children! Nothing
is more important than that! Dr. Dobson said, "No
the world can compensate for failure at home." He was
RIGHT! Enjoy your kids in spite of the messes - while you still CAN -
and you'll still have a
them long after your house
is clean, and they are gone.
One way we got organized: When our seven kids were little we had 2 sets of bunk beds for each bedroom: one room for the boys room and one for the girls room. See? You CAN fit everyone ...even in a small house!
Who said this: "The BEST TIME TO Discipline a TEENAGER is when he's 3 YEARS OLD!!!"
You may already know what you should do, but it's a constant battle to be PRO-ACTIVE, isn't it?KEEP the kids BUSY! GIVE your Kids SOMETHING TO DO to keep them out of trouble, away from too much TV, and instead get them into reading, sports, art or music!
