Well-meaning friends and family members always have questions. When you start dating someone for a while, they want to know when you are getting married. When you get married, they want to know when you are going to have a baby. When you have a baby, they want to know if you are going to have another baby. (And, if several years go by, they really want to know if you are going to have another baby. If you hedge at all, they are…Continue

It seems as my son has gotten older it has become harder for us to make family time. I think back to the days when we would take weekend getaways, family trips and even day trips to local attractions. I have so many good memories of those days and miss them as well.
Even when my son was in high school and playing sports, my husband and I looked forward to attending all of his games and supporting him. We enjoyed traveling to new places to…

I’ve discovered through talking to other mum’s that, cutting or trimming their child’s hair is a very stressful ordeal so they just don’t do it. However, this is an activity that is necessary for the health of your child’s hair especially in the following cases:

Although it is not easy to diagnose a problem with the eyes, it is even harder to do so with children, as they tend to pretend as there is nothing wrong with their eyes, or they are too afraid to say anything as they feel ashamed. However, if you notice that they are squinting too much or if they rubbing their eyes frequently, it could be an early sign of something more serious going on, and you should immediately go see a doctor to diagnose what the problem might be.

I am a very recent mom to two beautiful daughters. When I conceived my second child, I started to feel anxious and worried about how my older daughter would treat her younger sibling.
My second baby came into this world last year and it’s safe to say that even though there was a little bit of jealousy, my older daughter took on really well to her younger sister. So much so that she is very protective of her sister. Being a mental health professional helped me through this…Continue
There are a lot of parents who would think that a ride to school, or watching an hour of TV with their kids would count as “quality” time and would be enough. With today's hectic lifestyle most parents lead, trying to be at two places at once, balancing between their jobs, caring for their children, doing the house chores, and so on, time has really become a precious commodity. A commodity that at some point will inevitably begin to elude each and…Continue

I have really been in a funk lately. My mind has been a whirlwind of emotions & thoughts. Ever since my youngest, my baby, turned 4years old I have been giving myself a hard time.

My husband and I are a bit old school. He works outside the home. I do all the household chores, all things clothes and food…Continue
