Navigating Life's Twists and Turns

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.

 

Remember playing car-racing games at the arcade, trying to stay on the virtual road while going as fast as you can? In those videos, sharp curves keep switching and obstacles suddenly appear, causing you to crash and burn if your reactions aren’t fast enough.

 

It may be fun to play a game, but what about when life itself mirrors this wild ride? Whether you're actually on a…

GEMS for Working Moms

 

Is your life an endless cycle, revolving around work and taking care of the kids? If so, you’re not alone. In a recent study by the Families and Work Institute, ½ of American women say they don’t have enough time to spend on themselves and to choose the activities they enjoy. We all know that saying ‘yes’ to more responsibility can make us feel safer with the boss and help us avoid conflict in the family. But too often ‘yes’ is our default mode with just about…

Siblings: Love > Guilt

There's the perennial discussion... is it better to be the oldest or the youngest sibling? There are obviously pros and cons to both and it also depends on each individual family, but I think, and my opinion is obviously bias, the older siblings definitely have one thing on the younger siblings. 

 

Older siblings have to live with Older Sibling Guilt (OSG).

 

Being an older sibling myself in all my years of talking to other older siblings, there is not one, NOT…

Tooth Fairy Fail

If I could take myself into a dark alley and kick my own ass, I totally would cause I seriously dropped the parenting ball the other night (once again).  Yes, I completely failed my duty as the Tooth Fairy, y'all.  Now I know that plenty of people have said that they, too, have forgotten a tooth here and there, but I swore that I would never…

Conflict Resolution

I just recently read a comment on a friend's blog about her decision to stay home for her next baby girl.. while I don't want to be part of the already ridiculous fervor of the so-called "mommy wars", the comment struck a nerve with me. Especially because, the comment's last sentence meant that (although I know the comment has nothing to do with me and I could just be projecting here) the choice of going to work means that one's priorities aren't straight. In any case, stay at home,…

Guilt Free Bedtime Routine



 

Let me start out by saying that I'm in no way claiming to be super mom or that I have it all together because I don't.

I have however, found an idea that works for our bedtime routine. I thought it might be helpful for other parents who also struggle with the challenge of wanting to end your…

The Creature From The Back Of The Fridge

The meal was "out of this world." That's why it was saved, presumably.





And indeed, it may have been heavenly in its original form, I'm sure; now? Not so much.





A science project, perhaps, a study in microbiology and the tenacity of bacteria. Mould is a very curious but fascinating thing, I'm embarrassed to admit.





Of what do I speak? Surely you know: the evil that lurks at the back of the fridge (contained in Tupperware, of course).…

Favourite Kid Syndrome, Anyone?

 

In the last few days I became uncomfortably aware of an article doing the rounds promoting the notion that parents have a favourite child (apparently there's a guy promoting a book about sibling rivalry, which I don't need to…

Things I've Learned This Week

 

** Nobody ever forewarns you about all the skid marks of motherhood (and I do mean that LITERALLY).

 

** My kids have more energy than Richard Simmons on cocaine.

 

** Screaming is evidently my son's new favorite hobby.

 

** I sure know how to waste a crapload of time.

 

** Sleeping with the window open totally…

Guilt -- It's A Bitch Alright

 

Kids sure have a way of (figuratively) punching you right in the gut when you least expect it, don't they?  Their unassuming words can wash a blanket of guilt right over you in nothing flat.  And before you know it, you're feeling like the suckiest parent in the world and saving your pennies for the future therapy that your kid will inevitably need thanks to…

The Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy Walked Into a Bar...

Yea, this would likely be a pretty funny joke if it existed. Perhaps it does, somewhere out there.
Nonetheless, whether or not it exists doesn't detract from the fact that these entities - ones that millions of Western children hold dear - might very well be....well....not exactly real.…

Maria's Random Rants - The Price We Pay

The dictionary defines guilt as “a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, crime, or wrong, whether real or imagined.” Real or imagined, that sounds about right. Might even be more accurate, at least helpful, if they added a footnote, “Warning: Duration of guilt known to last several years. Atonement not guaranteed.” Now that’s the kind of guilt I know. Come to think of it, I didn’t know there was another kind.

 

It’s taken me a while, but I’m fairly proud of…

Ambitious 29 Year Old Woman Kidnapped...

And replaced with an unsure mother.



Have you ever felt, by becoming a mom, you have lost all traces of the former person you used to be? Have you ever looked in the mirror at your disheveled hair, clothes stained with baby milk, and dark circles and wondered what happened to that savvy, well-manicured, vibrant woman who used to inhabit the person who now knows more about Bubble Guppies then the economic bubble?



Maybe its the fact that we spend a substantial part of our… Continue

Kids 3.0, or "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the iPod"

My daughter Miranda is a tech-savvy son of a gun.



The kid is good - really good.



She can wield an iPod like no one else.



"Daddy, can I play on your iPod?," she often says to her father. He almost always says "yes."



I then hear "YES!," "DARN IT!," and other exclamations in rising intensity from this very busy seven-year-old.



"What are you doing, Sweetie?," I say.



"Playing on Daddy's iPod and trying to beat it!"



Kids and… Continue

More Thoughts on Breast is Best: Guilt-led breastfeeding





As a vocal breastfeeding advocate, a sex educator and a supporter of survivors of sexual abuse during their childbearing year I have ask myself many times about the validity of “pushing” bf’ing. Yes, breastmilk is best, but if we guilt woman into breastfeeding aren’t we hurting the cause?

And what do I mean by cause? Is it a cause? If we stopped pushing Breast Is Best as if it was a winning hearts and minds military campaign…
