Welcome to Educated, Common Sense Parenting! This is my parenting education/commentary blog. Start here and read About This Blog.

I believe too many parents today have let their children rule their households. Their children dictate their daily lives, demand every ounce of their attention and do not show any respect for their parents. This needs to change. The only way to do this is if parents start letting good old common sense start dictating their parenting practices and stop letting their children run the show. You're the parent. Act like one.

Homemade Spaghetti O's!

Brookey doesn't often ask for more of any type food unless it's candy and she's ALWAYS has seconds and thirds of these so they're kid-tested!!

Homemade Spaghetti O's
(I don't measure very well, so amounts are approx)

(1) cup (dry) whole wheat "O" pasta (Safeway chains have these in their Eating Right line, they're called "Wheat Pasta Rings)
(1) 15 oz can organic, low-sodium tomato sauce
1/3 cup of milk
(1) teaspoon butter
(1) teaspoon sugar
Pinch of garlic powder
(1) handful of shredded cheese. I have used cheddar, mozzarella and jack.

- Cook pasta 2 minutes past package instructions (for that mushy, Spaghetti O's texture); drain.
- Whisk next 5 ingredients together over medium heat. Simmer for 5 minutes and whisk in cheese.
- Combine pasta and sauce--enjoy!!!
