Giving your child quality praise on a daily basis can have a big impact on his behavior, but it’s important to learn how, when, and why to praise your child in order to reap the most benefits. 

My partner and I are constantly evaluating our parenting. We’re very committed to learning from our “mistakes” and passing on as little of our baggage to our kiddo as possible. Our intention in doing a “yes day” was to observe the ins and outs of our son without “waiting to correct his behavior”.
Parenting strategies have evolved over time, and no matter what generation you grew up in, it might be time to ditch some of the disciplinary techniques you’ve been accustomed to.

I'm not ashamed or apologetic in saying I wish my family had more generational wealth, but I don't love the self-sacrificing energy it takes to make it happen. In some sense, it can breed discord between the sacrifice-r and those who benefit from the "blood, sweat, and tears" that went into creating these assets.

You make it hard to have a child. You show up with all these preconceived notions at every angle of the process. I'm simply confused, society. What do you want from us as parents?

This year has presented a number of challenges for school-aged children across the country. As we approach the end of this tumultuous school year, parents can help their children finish strong by instilling a positive connection to school. 

I've never explored where I would be if I didn't have my son. It always felt like a betrayal to imagine a world, my world, without him in it.

It took about 6 months postpartum before the first comments and inquiries about a second baby came up. I was going through so much, too much to even consider the thought for a millisecond.
We want to pass on the lessons we grew up knowing about sustainability and grow deeper alongside our boy. So, here are 3 of the many benefits of raising our son off the grid.
It’s the subject of a multitude of debates and the center of many “mommy wars” throughout the years - which is more beneficial to children: being a working mom or a stay-at-home mom? And even though this tends to be a hot-button topic for many parents, one is not in fact better than the other. Moreover, the pandemic has actually fueled a narrowing of the divide between the two.
