Last week I read a blog post from a mom who was upset about how much praise us “millennials” received as children, and how it “ruined” us. She explained how, as a result, we are now pampering our kids. She suggested we try not praising our children so much, and that criticism is good for […]

Santa and his international counterparts

Who is the big guy in red with the once-a-year job flying around the world delivering gifts to all the little children? To me, that’s Father Christmas – or, as my 3-year-old says “Farmer” Christmas.

Finding the ISH

In December of 2014, our third child was born. A chubby bundle of adorableness whose smile lights up a room, and whose sheer determination makes her a force to be reckoned with.

Helping your child through being bullied

In the middle of a circle of 5 girls I sat on the floor, paralyzed to the ground by the weight of my fear, unable to escape what I knew was about to happen. The empty gym’s silent expanse surrounded and engulfed me. I desperately hoped one of the doors would open and a teacher would […]

Managing Parental Paranoia

As a Mom, I am definitely guilty of being “Momanoid” – the parental version of paranoid. Momanoia is: Believing that leaving my daughter’s bassinet too close to the painting will cause the painting to fall on her head Thinking that my son is DEFINITELY out of his crib, and sticking his fingers in an electrical […]
