I have to admit there is a very small part of me that wants to congratulate him for his proper usage of the "F" sound, but I resist the urge and instead correct him and suggest a more appropriate response like, "Oh, no!"

Love in the Middle of the Night

Laying here tonight I wonder why motherhood no longer seems to have the same luster it did when I first gave birth, why I feel like a shadow tending to someone else's footsteps. Where did the allure go? I think it's must be with all of the socks that have gone missing in the dryer.

For just about everybody, having a second baby is a financial as well as an emotional decision. That's because kids today come with a hefty price tag. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the cost of raising a child to age 18 is now upwards of $245,000.

Personally, I've always thought the whole point of school pictures is to provide an authentic representation of childhood -- to record every shift of the dental landscape, document every boo-boo, remind us of an unrequited love affair with bangs.

Why I Never Tell My Sons To 'Be A Man'

Joe DeProspero | Posted 10.07.2014 | Parents
Joe DeProspero

It's not that the phrase is abusive, it's that the phrase is limiting -- and frankly, confusing for a small child. Be a man? What does that even mean? I'm 35 and sometimes I'm not even sure what it means.

At What Age Can You Teach a Global Mindset?

Amelia Friedman | Posted 10.06.2014 | Education
Amelia Friedman

You can't just take your kid on a vacation to Spain and consider your work done, nor can you sign up for a language course during sophomore year of college and check "global mindset" off your to-do list. Developing a global mindset should begin before birth and continue for a lifetime.

Lorne Jaffe

I'm not ready for Sienna to have her mom's sailor mouth, but eventually, when she's a teen, I don't want her to be afraid of speaking the language of her classmates and once she reaches adulthood, I hope to be ready for her to speak such words in my presence as part of normal conversation because the reality is that cursing is ordinary and sometimes, often even, acts as a release for pent up stress.

It is LGBTQ History Month, which got me thinking about my own history. When I came out to my mother her struggle was largely based on worrying what the neighbors would think.

Imagine you've been a cop for years in a tough city. Sometimes, the troubles you see during the day follow you home and haunt your dreams at night. If you're Jack Mook, you deal it by trying to make life better for some of those you encounter.

The world needs intentional people... leaders, teachers, lovers, and parents. And I'm starting to think that my nervousness around "Will I be a good enough father?" is all the more reason for me to be a father in the first place.

I avoided reading Charlotte Kitley's blog post for the reason many of us avoid many things: because I knew it would make me feel something hard, that it would affect me, that it would probably rattle me to the core. It has.

My son is 4 years old. He likes to tell stories and make weird sounds at the top of his lungs. The other day, he was on a roll, making annoying fart sounds with his armpits and mouth.

A Fistful of Jeans: How it Actually Feels to Lose a Parent

Joe DeProspero

The worst part of losing her wasn't finding her body; It wasn't even having to break the news to her mother (my grandmother) later that day. It was the moment I returned to my job and realized that I was expected to simply blend back into society as if I wasn't permanently damaged.

Despite my best attempts to end my life, my medical team and my family eventually helped me to rebuild it. I ended up being quite fortunate. Many of my strange inclinations went away with time. Bit by bit, everything started to feel natural once again. I resumed most of my previous habits. I reconnected emotionally with my loved ones. I lived.

When the college students go off to school the dynamics in the household will obviously change, but the sounds of the family change as well.

Stephanie Preusse

Being woken up in the middle of the night on occasion is one more moment, one more memory, one more incredible experience I get to have with my son. I wouldn't trade these moments for anything in this world -- not even several blissful hours of much needed sleep.
