Your child is not your friend
There is a purely emotional part of the parent/child relationship that is built on affection and esteem. Parents and children are genetically geared to love each other, and it’s a beautiful thing to behold. But there’s a stage where parenting becomes a functional role, not just an emotional role. With infants, the emotional role shows when a mother demonstrates her love by holding, talking and singing to the child. The functional role involves feeding, changing diapers and bathing the baby. One without the other is damaging for the child.

Co-Dependency or Kindness?
"I just want to show people I love that I care, but I end up feeling resentful when they don't do the same for me in return. If only people were as considerate toward me as I am toward them, I'd be a lot happier, and feel more secure. Something just isn't right."

Who Is Going To Save Our Children?
Take a look at the children and young teenagers around your area. Anything look different? Take a closer look at a large group of children playing in a local school yard or in a nearby playground. More and more children and young adults are getting heavier. In fact, obesity among children has tripled over the past three decades.
Telling your children about your breast cancer diagnosis
One of the things you are going to have to do when you get diagnosed with cancer is to tell your children about it. It's going to be a very difficult and distressing time for you all, but it's vital for you and your family to talk about it in order for you to move forward with your treatment. Some experts believe that telling people about your cancer can be a constructive step in the treatment process.
