While I have been trying to nurture my daughter in modeling healthy attitudes about body image all she is hearing is static because I have portrayed just the opposite. She is learning to hate her body because she has listened to me speak negatively about my own.
Every day, we hear about the many challenges of an aging population. With advancing age comes those hard-to-discuss end-of-life planning issues, something with which financial advisers are all too familiar. And we know most advisers want to help. However, there is one factor that is often overlooked in these discussions: blended families.
Remaining in the present moment, which flows with time, knowing the moment is not static, this is how one is able to hear clearly the voice within. What is your greatest challenge? Do something about it beginning now.
A baby's delicate skin is particularly vulnerable in the summer, and cumulative sun damage starts on day one. No pressure, parents and grandparents!
"Men marry women hoping they will never change. Women marry men hoping they will." My husband brings up Einstein's quote as we sit on the kitchen floo...
At first, since we're always so focused on creating this important family time, we questioned ourselves. Is it okay to give up that togetherness and branch off? The answer was a huge "yes," and here's why.

I don't know who was more excited to see Pixar's latest animated film, Inside Out, -- me or my kids. There are so many cool things this movie will teach you about your feelings and your memories and your brain that you can talk to your kids about after watching.
They say you never forget your first time. I would totally have to agree, but I am not talking about what you may be thinking I am here. My first time was back in 1987 at Shea Stadium.
