Dads are People Too. (By Sarah Senst)

Dads are People Too.

In honor of Father’s Day and all fathers, I wanted to write a bit about their importance.

I recently learned a new term. It is called “father-void” homes. A father-void home is one where there is an identified father but he has no presence in the home or in the lives of his children. This is compared to “father-less” homes which in the past has meant “no father to be found.” In most cases, there are father’s, they just may not be present,…

Tame the Beast.

http://myteenagerandtoddler.blogspot.com/2012/01/tame-beast.html



manipulate - vb: to negotiate, control or influence (something or someone) cleverly, skillfully, or deviously.



My kids are masters at building manipulation tactics that work brilliantly when dealing with me. As many of you know, I have the man-boy, who is turning 18 in a few weeks, and the baby girl, who is a three-year-old toddler… Continue

Celebrating the Holidays Alone

By Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.

Are you alone and wondering how you'll be celebrating the holidays this year? Whether you're divorced or widowed, a single parent or the spouse of a deployed serviceperson, it most likely seemed easier when you had a partner to share in the planning. But now that you'll be the one creating the holiday mood, take advantage of the freedom you have to develop customs that are just right for you. …

The Here Today, Gone Tomorrow Dad

As a mom, especially an overprotective mom, I have that need to shield my teens from anything and everything that can hurt them. Broken glass, boxes of twinkies, school bullies, drunken drivers, burning buildings, pubescent boys who only have their penis and girls' boobies on the brain. But how, how do I shield my teenage girls from their father?



How do I…

Working Out a Storm

Today I took my first steps inside a gym (to actually use the equipment rather then the joining process or to have a look around) for a loooooooooooooooooong time. The last time I worked out in one was when I lived in London and I used to go to a Government run gym in Swiss Cottage, North London maybe 8 years ago or so! Blimey! Where do the years go?!



'The Lawyer' and I both became members of a gym company here aptly (and laughingly) called…

Divorcing & Single Parents Finding Happiness

Divorcing and single parents that are dealing with trials during this holiday season, ponder this...



Wake up every morning and know for a fact that it was going to be a beautiful day. Happiness is a choice and when it is chosen, it is infectious to all of those around you. It is helpful to write yourself a few affirmations and sit it next to the bed so that it is the first thing you see when you wake up. Below, I have listed a few of my personal affirmations:

  • Today, I'm…

Let the Battle Rage

http://projectsupermom.blogspot.com/2010/11/let-battle-rage.html

Finally! Our representatives have grown a pair and have drawn a line in the sand against the fast food industry, on our behalf. In a nearly unanimous vote by city officials, fast food operators in San Francisco can no longer give away toys in kid's meals, unless they meet certain standards...much higher than what these restaurants…

A Facebook Lifeline

As most of you know, my oldest daughter has reactive attachment disorder (RAD). We recently spent a week in Colorado at a camp for kids with RAD. You can read about it at It Takes a Village. We learned that our kids are broken,

but they can be healed with love, nurturing and a lot of structure and

discipline. We also learned that

as parents, we aren’t bad parents, we are amazing parents…we practice…

Whose Playtime is it Anyway?

Right at this very moment, I am sitting at one of those play places where the kids can eat (only the establishment’s food…no outside food allowed) then run and climb and go crazy. We came here specifically so the kids could go crazy at a place other than our house.

I brought my computer to take care of a few things, but couldn’t help but observe the dynamics of a place like this and write about them. After eating their lunch (kind of expensive for what you get, by the way), they were…

New Study: Obesity Causes Cancer!

Many parents view their children’s excess weight as an aesthetic issue. They worry their kids won’t be liked in school, won’t be picked in gym, and won’t be pursued by members of the opposite sex. According to the American Institute of Cancer Research, parents have a lot more than looks to be concerned about. New research shows that about 100,500 new cases of cancer are caused by obesity each year.



Obesity is known to cause many deleterious health effects but this study is one of the… Continue
