As promised, here is the second installment in my exposé on men’s dirty little secrets. As I’m sure many of you know, men are visual beings. We are motivated to action and stimulated most by our sense of sight. As such, when we see something provocative it can have a profound effect on us. And by profound effect, I mean, we get an erection. It’s automatic, we think very little about it and are fairly accustomed to it, as we have regularly had to deal with this “affliction” since we were but mere lads. And all o
I apologize in advance if I offend anyone, but sometimes the truth hurts and I am going to be completely honest here. I, Michelle Smith IAT, CPD have not only been a babysitter and nanny for over 14 years myself, but as the owner of Embracing Babies Staffing Agency I refer babysitters and nannies out to parent clients for my business.
Secret love affairs are the stuff of fairy tales aren’t they? Well, perhaps. They are exciting. You and this person have your own little secret. Hiding from others. Adrenaline pumping.

This should be true for everyone. But most of the time it’s not. Today, kids are often taught that failure is OK. They get A’s for effort and a trophy for participating. In the real world, failure is not OK and successful achievement is rewarded. By nature, kids are hardwired to succeed. Perseverance is an instinctive trait. For example, how many times does the average child try to walk before he or she gives up? They don’t give up. They never give up. They do whatever it takes to get from here to there.

Little secrets run rampant with couples—you said you were working late when you were out at a bar with your friends after work or you said the shoes you just bought cost $80.00 when in fact they cost $280.00. While on the surface they may seem innocent enough, in the long run, keeping secrets in order to avoid confrontation, conflict, manipulation, or in some cases, potential divorce, wreaks havoc on the health and well-being of a marriage.
