The Best Question I’ve Ever Asked My Children

The Best Question I’ve Ever Asked My Children

Last week I asked my children, “How can I be a better mom to you?”  I got the idea from a friend who had asked her daughter the same question.  Her daughter, who is in high school, said “Can we read together at night?”  How great is that?  I was sure that my children would ask for things like more screen time, less rules, messy rooms, and more spending money.   Many moms that I talk to don’t think they are doing a good job as parents.  They are sure that they are ruining their children in some dramatic fashion and that othe

Morning Love Power Questions

Every morning, when I’m hugging and kissing Isabelle good bye as she is leaving for school, we have a little ritual. I ask her 4 questions:   1. Who is worthy of everything wonderful?

Does Mom Have A Right To Pursue A New Love?

Question:  My question is a little unique. I am considering remarriage to a wonderful man, however; I have a daughter who is legally blind, and she has a beautiful 3- year-old daughter. If I remarry, I would be moving out of state. My daughter is not anywhere near being self sufficient and I am not going to just abandon her. My fiancé has said that he would wait as long as it takes for me to help my daughter become independent. Neither my fiancé nor I have plans to break up if this process does not move as fast as we had hoped.

After four decades of choice, one wonders how far women have really come.  The battle still blazes in the political arena as to whether choice should be a legal right.  The emotionally-charged topic of abortion is one of the most polarized subjects in our nation.  Th
