A. L. asks from Longmont - This is the worst feeling I've ever had as a parent. My daugher is only four and I feel like I've failed her somehow. My stepson is 10. He is usually very quiet and mild mannered. In the past, I've always thought he was too distant. My husband recommneded to his ex-w...

What I've Learned from Modern Dads

November 24, 2014

Several years ago, while talking to a stay at home dad at my daughters’ preschool, he told me about how he lost his engineering job when his company got purchased, and in the same week his wife landed a new, well-paying gig for an accounting firm. His youngest had three years until he would be in school full time. When they ran the numbers, they determined it made sense for him to make a career change. After joking about the initial feeling of emasculation, he said he willingly embraced his new role….More

November 18, 2014 -

J. T. asks from Oradell - I posted a little while ago about my daughter's 3rd grade teacher. I let the one incident go as I didn't want to rush in and my daughter seemed ok. There have been little ups and downs since then. But as time goes on and she and other kids get yelled at for asking ques...

How to Get The Picture-Perfect Family Holiday Photo

New York:
December 12, 2010

Sitting in Central Park this weekend, I watched as a professional photographer brought her clients to a picture-perfect hideaway for the classic holiday card photo shoot. The little munchkins and their parents, all dressed up in holiday-wear, were positioned in just the right way and instructed to say “cheese” for the camera. Let’s face it. This photo is important. It represents an entire year of existence and growth for the family, as it is mailed out to close friends and family….More
