How to maintain your bond with your child while satisfying everyone's needs.
Suddenly, your son springs on you that he's made the decision that he'd like to live with his father full-time — the joint custody arrangement you had shared with your ex-husband is no longer meeting his needs (at least in his mind). To your son, this may seem a logical request, but to you, it signals the end of a relationship and the closeness you once shared. You may even be taken aback at the emotions you’re feeling and be unsure of where to turn.
A new survey also reveals that 25 percent of moms would choose a different husband if they could!
Ever have a sneaking suspicion that your mom wished you were a boy? You might be right. According to an anonymous survey of more than 26,000 moms conducted by TODAY.com and Parenting.com, ten percent say they wish their child was the opposite sex. And of that ten percent, 60 percent have boys. Sorry, boys!
One woman discovers that her sense of happiness does not need to come from her children.
I stood there in my sweatpants, a bit disheveled, wanting to cry out, "No! You and I belong together!" But that was my need, not his. He walked off, his Bakugan backpack shining in the sun, without turning his head. I tightened my jacket around me. He caught sight of his friend, and slung his arm around his shoulders, a gesture that seemed more mature than he was. They disappeared into the school, laughing, tilting their faces towards one another. And just like that, the cord was severed.

There seems to be a celebrity baby boom this summer. The Daily Beast is on the case.
While the Beckhams welcomed their first daughter, Harper Seven, over the weekend, Kate Hudson is still mulling over what to name her new baby boy with her musician fiancé, Matthew Bellamy. From Natalie Portman’s first to Mariah Carey's twins, see more celebrities who added to their families this summer.
Recently one of my clients lamented, “Dr. Shosh, the women in my new moms group are always competing with each other! They show off their baby gear and ways of handling their babies as if they’ve got the BEST way. It drives me crazy!”
I used to roll my eyes at this patriotic holiday, but my husband and sons have made me sentimental.
Growing up, I was a too cool for some of the traditions in my hometown. But my husband, also from my hometown, loves every little bit of it. My job in our marriage was to keep things hip but then we had sons and they became involved in the Memorial Day parade. It found deep meaning for me and the family tradition brought all of us closer than scrapbooks or costume parties ever could.
Ashley Madison claims a disappointing Mother's Day prompted women to sign up for the dating site.
A seriously bad Mother's Day has prompted a whopping 52,684 moms to cheat? That's what a dating site for affairs, Ashley Madison, says. According to FOX Business, the site reported a 321 percent increase in traffic following Mother's Day, presumably to take advantage of the site's one-day special for free messaging. On an average day, 3,000 women sign up for Ashley Madison, so needless to say, that over-50,000 stat is a huge jump—also up 60% from last Mother's Day when the same offer was on the table.
Moms who birth multiple kids at once seem to live longer, so will Kate Gosselin live forever?
If we would have been personally asked to cast a prediction for this study, about whether moms of twins or singleton babies live longer, we would have totally went with mothers of one. Come on. We've been hearing parents tell their clans of kiddos, "Y'all are gonna be the death of me" for ages, haven't you? Chasing after two toddlers at once (and worrying about them) must take a few years off a mom's life, right? Apparently not. New research shows moms of twins actually live longer than moms who just have one baby at a time. Women who birth two children at once are generally stronger from the start, so they tend to live longer.
Can reviving Mother Centered beliefs save the world?
On Mother's Day, I would like to express my views as I look out my window upon a beautiful scene.I am overjoyed to see the lake shining before me in the sunshine, its color matching the blue sky. Birds are flittering here and there, the spring green is flourishing with the unstoppable force of Nature, and I can hardly contain my joy at being on such a beautiful planet! What I see out my window is Mother - I can tell this is so because of how I feel in my heart!
