10 Ways to be the difference in your child falling or flying

Family Sitting on Grass Near Building

I recently came upon a meme of a sad girl with the words across the chest of the tee-shirt she wore which said: She’s standing on the line between giving up and seeing how much more she can take. Powerful right? It’s loaded with the need for us as parents to make sure that this “line” is not a thin line.

It doesn’t matter if you have a 4-year old who’s being potty trained a 10-year old who’s trying to make the basketball team, a teenager who’s going…

Thinking about future support

It was time for my son to get ready for bed (or as we call it: his "clean routine"). He likes to stall some nights (shocking, I know), but after a few minutes, he gave in to our insistence that it was time to move along. As he was going up the stairs, he called out to us: "I won't be staying here with you forever, you know. One day, I'll move out."…

Not catching your kids when they fall

When our children are little, we are at the end of the playground slide, catching them when they reach the bottom. We are there, standing behind them as they tentatively cross the monkey bars. And we are the first to offer a steadying finger when they try to stay balanced when walking across a low curb.…

Where My Girls At? A Message For Moms Who Have Considered...

I was searching for the words over the weekend to share something that I was not sure if I should even share at all. Then, the more I thought about it the more it became clear to me that I had to. Because sometimes the very thing thing we…

Breastfeeding & Mental Health

Between my wife and I we have two things that we are really passionate about. For very personal reasons those two things are mental health awareness and breastfeeding. We have supported each other through difficult times in these areas and there are lots of overlapping themes in the care for the two.

From experience I can say that the main thing that mental health illnesses and breastfeeding have in common are the need for support. Strong unconditional support.

Breastfeeding…

Gone Too Long Without Child Support? It's Never Too Late To Get What's Yours

The Vice President of family & economic security of the National Women's Law Center, Joan Entmacher, revealed a startling statistic about child support. For low-income mothers, these payments represent 45% of their income. Their absence creates a gaping hole in their budget. The average adult would find it difficult to make ends meet when half of their income goes missing. When there’s a child’s welfare thrown into the…

The secret to happiness (for men)

My son likes to tell me when he is not happy. If I take him to a store, I hear "But that doesn't make me happy." If I tell him to clean up his toys, I hear, "That makes me so sad." He is five: Happiness is getting to do whatever he wants when he wants.



I used to think that happiness depended on the person -…

You give a little, you get a lot

Every Sunday morning, I give my son his allowance. He does a little song and dance he made up and races to his room to put the money into his three jars. So far, he's completely understood the purpose of his spend and save jars, but we haven't done much with his give jar. He knows that he has that jar in order to give back to the world, but we were…

Daddy issues on a whole new level

My husband is a wonderful man. (And that is not just because he reads this blog.) He is a supportive spouse, an intelligent person and a fantastic father. In our hurried life, we pass messages via text, talk while he is standing in the kitchen and cozy up on the couch together. I hope that he feels the same level of support from me that I feel from…

A Conscious Approach to Youth Sports

soccer

This was a weekend full of sports in my family. My 12 year old had a basketball game and my 7 year old had a soccer game and swim meet. As Rachel Macy Stafford says, I love to watch my children play. I have grown so much from the days when my 12 year old was just getting into sports - when my ego came roaring out to the field, the court, the pool - and I wanted him to excel at all costs. Regardless of his reasons for joining a team or for playing a sport (uh, maybe because…

I DO believe in child support: From a mom who doesn't accept it.







I have been noticing an anti child support trend lately.  I see articles popping up everywhere from women who claim not to believe in it.

While I understand why they may not want to accept child support,… Continue

I'm a Hypocrite

That's right folks. I'm a great big hypocrite. I have been so absorbed in my life and my worries over the last few years that I have forgotten about others. One of my posts from earlier talked about a friend who wasn't there for me when she said she would be. It hurt me, but I realized today that I have not been an emotional support to others much either.



I had a friend in college, Amy. She was a beautiful girl, but struggled with her self esteem. It hurt me to watch her in her… Continue

Navigating Life's Twists and Turns

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

 

Remember playing car-racing games at the arcade, trying to stay on the virtual road while going as fast as you can? In those videos, sharp curves keep switching and obstacles suddenly appear, causing you to crash and burn if your reactions aren’t fast enough.

 

It may be fun to play a game, but what about when life itself mirrors this wild ride? Whether you're actually on a…

Living in a Hope and Hopeless World

Those of us who live in North America and Western Europe are truly blessed. We have so many things to help us get through the day that they practically get unnoticed, such as plumbing, hot water, showers and for most, at least two decent size meals a day.

As women we have laws that protect us just like our male counterparts and the liberty to shape our own destiny.  We also have what most people in the world don’t have, hope.

This four letter word has been used so much in our…

National Breastfeeding Awareness Month: My Breastfeeding Journey

Breastfeeding was on of those taboo topics that people just didn’t talk about when I was pregnant with my first child.  As a new mom, I knew right away that I wanted to try breastfeeding my baby.  My first experience with breastfeeding happened when my twin sisters were born.   I remember seeing my mom breastfeeding and knew that my body…

AMOUR: Lessons from the 2013 Best Foreign Film

 

Although the 2013 Academy Awards are history, one gem - Amour - will continue to shine. This heartbreaking and unflinching movie was painful to watch but it stimulated conversations with more questions than answers.

As the people we love decline, how do we deal with the inevitable suffering?

Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke tackled this subject and won the 2013 Academy Award for best foreign language film. The leads, veteran French actors Jean-Louis…
