After my son, Ethan, was diagnosed with a rare and fatal genetic syndrome called Hunter syndrome, my husband and I were offered a place in a support group for parents who are raising children with special needs.

Even though the majority of America has fallen in love with their gays on a macro level, it doesn't diminish the individual experience we go through when we expose our true identity.

Dr. Samineh I. Shaheem

While growing up, we're repeatedly taught the importance of honesty. We set stringent boundaries for our children in regards to cheating, lying or covering up as they develop and learn the art of interaction. Yet we rarely talk about self-deception or the lies we tell ourselves.

There hasn't ever been a presidential candidate who has leveraged the Internet better than Bernie Sanders. It was just a matter of time before a candidate jumped into the interwebs with both feet, but the odd part was it was a 74-year-old grandpa.

Alicia Armeli MSEd MSN RDN CHLC

In this day and age, women have won the right to vote, to burn our bras, and to climb the corporate ladder. Why do we still find it a challenge to be honest in the bedroom? And could this duplicity potentially lead us astray when looking for Mr. Right?

I can't help you if you censor yourself and only tell me the nice things. Saying nice things will get you a Tootsie Pop. Honesty gets you my compassion.

Being lied to, it changes you. You start to close off your heart. You suspect everything and become paranoid. It causes insecurities because somewhere in your brain, being lied to makes you feel worthless.

Let's stop pretending that college is ever a four year walk in the park. I'm not suggesting that all of you have to be as dissatisfied with your college as I am, but I think we could all benefit from a bit more honesty about the ups and downs of every college experience.

As I've been tracking the providers of telecommunications networks and services, we find that these companies can pretty much say anything they want without any fear someone is going to do something about it.

Then You Really Might Know What It's Like

I'll admit it. I had the album. I really thought it was cool. The rugged truck on the cover, the first cowboy boots I'd ever seen in my life, Californian born and raised. The name of the CD painted with whitewash, white on black, right there on the driver's side door: Whitey Ford Sings the Blues.

Why You Should to Talk to Your Kids About Sex

Samara Wolpe | Posted 01.06.2017 | Parents
Samara Wolpe

Why is it so common for parents to make up strange stories such as the stork or fairies dropping children off at the doorstep, or for parents to wait until their children are summoned in for health class to broach the topic? Even more puzzling, why do many never bring it up at all?

Look Within

Leigh Weinraub

You are authentic when what you say matches what you feel, think and do. Authentic people don't say "yes" when they're thinking "no" and, even more importantly, they don't say "no" when their hearts are telling them "go for it." There's no discrepancy between their inner and outer lives.

I'm telling you this because so many people have called me brave, strong, a fighter. All of which are things I believe I can be sometimes, but not always. Sometimes I am cowardly, weak, and all I want to do is run away. I'm telling you this because I want everyone to know that those things are okay, too.

Tracy Crossley

Remember assumptions are stories YOU have created, they keep you in a bubble -- at a distance, because you've assumed all sorts of crap about someone else that may or may not be true. You've judged it and made it into a story where you're either the victim or the hero.

To Tell or Not to Tell

Dr. Natasha Josefowitz

Most people want to fit in, to belong, to be part of a group, to be "one of the gang," to share not only in the work but in the play, in the joking, the beer after a long day, the weekend golf or tennis games, the barbecues.
