Drinking age is 21, voting age is 18, Facebook age is 13. Is this FB age "limit" arbitrary? I am a mom of three and a child and adult psychotherapist. I write about a variety of parenting issues. Please visit my latest "Parenting Matters" blog post. Check it out. Is 13 an arbitrary age to join Facebook?

One of the best things I learned that helped me dramatically through the years of raising my beautiful daughters and now helping with my amazing grandchildren is reiki (ray-key). In 1985 a friend of mine talked me into taking a Reiki I class. She convinced me that it would help the learning disabled students I worked with - so I took the class which was held at her home in Boulder, Colorado.
Well I can tell you that was a…Continue

About a week ago I was picking D2 up from the half-day toddler program at Montessori and just making chit chat with his teacher. I asked her how he was doing. "He's doing great" she tells me, "but he keeps asking for someone named Eva. Who takes care of him in the afternoon?" I tell her Eva is his…

The time has come for another (better) look at Baby Pregnantcitygirl. By another look I mean a 3d/4d scan. For those of you not in the know these are the latest in technological advance in the baby scan world; the Rolls Royce of scans! You can have them done anywhere from 25 weeks onwards, the later in the pregnancy the better the result. We have had a few 3d scans done already, early on at the CRGH and one that I mentioned in a previous post privately at the Royal Free (we are so dying to…Continue

I am a typical female. I hear 95% of everything anyone says, I process it in my chaotic, busy brain, I store it in the appropriate compartment or break it down into lists, all the while talking a mile a minute and carrying on a witty conversation.
It’s how my brain works. It’s how most women’s brains work.

It’s the idea of my son starting his second year of college and the impending move that is having me love this patented garment carrier. The Clothes and Go allows you to easily carry clothes on hangers like no other carrier, box or piece of luggage can. Simply lay it on a wide surface (bed or floor), plop down the clothes right from their hangers, secure, close and go.…Continue

Who has never lost or left behind a valuable electronic gadget, bag, computer or mobile phone. I know you can feel it… That exact moment when you realize that your precious object is… missing. Pang. And if you have not lost anything lately, certainly you can relate (but not before rolling your eyes) to either your husband, partner or kids who have done…

This past Saturday I went grocery shopping with D2 in tow. He was restless and trying to escape from the cart's child safety belt as the checkout clerk loaded our cart up with bags. Observing that I clearly had my hands full, the bag boy asked me if I needed any help out to my car. I told him, "No, thanks. I got it."Just the other night, I was putting D2 down for bed with our…Continue

My boss, a retired Navy admiral, likes to tell this joke about a conversation he had with his wife:
Her: You're the General and I'm the Major.
Him: That's great! Sounds good to me.
Her: Right. You make all of the general decisions and I make the major ones.
I love this joke. It got me thinking though. I was talking with a good friend the other night…Continue

Dear readers, I'm back! I've just returned from a fantastic vacation to California to visit my family. It was quite the adventure getting there because it was D2's first plane ride. To say I was nervous about travelling across the country on my own with a toddler is an understatement. At almost 20 months, D2 is very active and loathes sitting in his car seat for more than a…Continue
