Welcome, Cristie Ritz King

Cristie Ritz King

I am a wife and mother of three from Red Bank.  
While studying to become a Doula, I decided what I really wanted to help empower whole families so they could live richer, healthier lives. So I combined my birth work with a certification in Holistic Health Counseling and at Real Life Wellness I help busy people make simple, easy changes to live their best lives from birth and beyond. 
You can also find me writing about my own adventures in parenting and wellness all around the internet. I am a founding editor of the Jersey Moms Blog and The Right Hand Mom Blog.  When I want to get all that done in 140 characters or less, I'm on twitter  @ritzking

I’ll admit, in the past I got a little…

Bullying and The Village Approach

A million years ago, when I was a teacher, I was on the school’s Behavior Management committee and we worked on a new school wide plan to curb some not so lovely behaviors. We didn’t call it anti-bullying and we didn’t purchase some published kit that costs thousands of dollars. We just set about creating standards and lessons that emphasized empathy, kindness and self-esteem and we did it in a way that encompassed the entire community in a uniform way. The expectations for behavior were…

Apple Crumble Recipe Just in Time for Fall

It's that time of year again. I'm not sure if it's everywhere, but I know that in Jersey, people go crazy for apple picking. If you're anything like us, when you take the kids to the orchards you might get a little crazy with the abundance of fruit. Then you get home and think, what the heck am I going to do with all these apples? Well, I'm here to…
