Dear Mattel, Really? It took 57 years to make changes to Barbie? That is far too long. No matter what, women continue to hold ourselves to an impossi...
Those are my babies, even though they are 22, 24 & 26, they will forever be my babies. Whenever I hear about a cop shooting an unarmed Black man, my heart goes out to that mother because I feel as if that could have been my baby
We recently came together as two mothers to discuss the stereotypes faced by single parents, single mothers in particular, and the additional stereotypes faced by Black single mothers.
Alive shouldn't be a relative term, but living is implicit when you use heroin. Opiate addicts function in limbo, in a state similar to the walking de...
I have spent many years around young children and if there is one thing I have learned about boys.... they will be boys. Full of life, full of adventure, but more than anything, full of energy.
Sometimes when our little darlings grow into teens, they tend to shut us out. There are often misunderstandings and the dynamic relationship we once had withers to simple yes and no conversations. The truth is, no parent wants to be shut out by their child.
We're on day 6 of the SNOW-IN. It's been life altering for our family. Here's how. 1) We make homemade chocolate chip cookies and hot cocoa with marshmallows for breakfast.
For the last four months, my son has been severely depressed, buried in a down comforter desiring only to attach to a computer or snuggle with a pillow. I've feared losing him. He's rarely been willing to leave the house or often his room.

On occasion we have these conversations about those other technologies that everyone else has. I wish it were a simple answer I could give him. But I find myself conflicted at times. Will he fall behind his peers when it comes to technology? I'm not sure that he will.
The kids are in bed, you sit down on the couch, and you are surrounded by piles of toys. You are too tired to do anything about it, but you ca...
Hello! What a crowd! Thank you! I want to thank you for being here for me today, and I want to tell you that I'm here for you too. Because this campaign isn't about me. This campaign is about the future.
Naturally, when my children were younger, I tried to use the nicest language. I tried to never use profanity and to always keep my cool. As life would have it, that did not always go as planned.
This exercise cemented for me the idea that there is simply nothing better than looking at the world from a child's perspective. The little things matter to them. Our children offer us their awareness, innocence and optimism. Correct me if I am wrong, but couldn't all of us use a little bit more of this in our life
Try to schedule a time in between for naps and keep them well fed and hydrated. Aquariums get busy and you don't want a cranky little one.
