Can A New Baby Put A Relationship In Danger?

Having a baby is a wonderful thing, but we shouldn’t be shy about talking about some of the tensions it brings. Let’s have a look at some of the common mistakes we can make that can cause issues with a couple, and try to envisage a positive, realistic way to rearrange our lives around all of the big changes.

    The Good, The Bad, & The Terribly Stinky: Toddlers vs. Teens

    I was at a meeting recently with a couple of other parents, making small talk about our kids.

    One woman had younger children. Preschool, maybe. Just emerging from mommy-and-me-gymnastics stage and entering into the “Let’s see what kind of activity keeps you most interested but doesn’t cost me an arm and a leg” phase.

    The guy in our group had teen girls, big into soccer. Travel leagues. Sometimes the family had concurrent games in towns on opposite ends of the state. The kinds of games college recruiters attend, so God forbid your kid misses one, or you miss watching your kid play one, in favor of watching the other kid at her game. READ MORE

    RIE-SPECT: MAMA CAN YOU HEAR ME? PART II

    When I was in my early 20’s I was in a beauty pageant – or scholarship program, if you will. My platform was promoting self-esteem in today’s youth. When it was time for the Q&A portion of the pageant, they asked me a question that, at the time, I believed was irrelevant. “When do you think that a child should start listening to music?” READ MORE

    RIE-SPECT: MAMA CAN YOU HEAR ME? PART I

    I’ve been raising a lot of eyebrows lately. Why, you ask? For the past few weeks I’ve been carrying a book under my arm: Baby Knows Best: Raising a Confident and Resourceful Child, the RIE® Way. I don’t have kids so why would I be reading a parenting book? No, I’m not pregnant, but after reading the book if I end up having a child I will be running to a RIE (pronounced “wry”) class immediately. READ MORE

    Competitive Breastfeeding

    Before you had a baby, you might have heard a new mom talk about her big leaky boobs, or witness a baby quietly nursing under a blanket, but you didn’t really know what was truly involved with breastfeeding, right?

    Then, BAM! You are in the hospital, holding your tiny baby for the first time, and
    immediately asked if you are ready to try nursing. You are then pressured to room-in with your baby, again to encourage breastfeeding.

    You come home from the hospital, exhausted, depleted, and eager to keep the baby alive, and people start asking how the nursing is going. How long you’ll be nursing. And for the love of God– ‘when your milk came in.’ READ MORE
