From day one I knew I would be nursing my child/children. I refused to let formula be in the house because I did not want that easy fix. I had a hard time getting my little one to latch on the hospital. She was in the nursery for the first week she was born with complications and I think the downfall was the sugar water and paci they gave her right off the bat.

Mother's day comes with many happy moments, but the most heart-warming part of the holidays always seems to be the opening of the presents. Oh well, preparation and receiving presents has their good sides, too, but let's face it, all the thrill around the whole arrangement is not to the taste of everyone. In fact, I am one of the people who actually likes being involved in planning, but there is nothing I enjoy more than a warm cup of milk & cocoa near the fireplace with sweet…Continue

Since, it is nearly impossible for parents to be around their li’ll one all day long, toys entertain him and keep him occupied. It holds importance to offer our kids with a lot of toys to play with. And if we don’t, we are taking…Continue

I have recently been talking to one of my close friends regarding parenting struggles he is having with his teenagers. The topic of protecting the parent-teen relationship in the context of setting boundaries and consequences has come up several times. I began to think about how to negotiate the boundaries and consequences all families must have to function effectively, within the parent-teen relationship.
