dream big together
Like a shiny new car you just drove off the lot, the excitement of new marriage and the infatuation of new love almost always changes after the proverbial honeymoon period. That doesn’t mean it goes away; far from it. It’s just that as you begin to tackle some of your first challenges together as a couple and return to some sense of normalcy—or at least the “new normal - most couples inevitably trade novelty for the maturing of the relationship,”It’s not a bad thing, and it is also inevitable.

New parents often anticipate each new development in their babies with excitement and anticipation. As babies reach new milestones, parents and siblings applaud and cheer, eager for the next celebration. The normal ages and stages in child development allow for some wiggle-room, usually a range of a few weeks to a few of months for different tasks. When babies do not reach developmental milestones within the given range, it could mean the child has a problem. [More]

Coming to Terms with Your Teenager's Coming of Age

18. April 2014 05:55 by Casey Truffo | Comments

comingto termswith your teenagers comingof age
The time when your teenager moves toward adulthood is an important time; however, it can be among the most difficult for a child AND their parents. Books, music, and movies many times refer to the theme of coming of age and relay the challenges associated in the transition. For families, this is a most emotional time because parents often are faced with disappointment and broken hearts as they feel their child no longer needs them, while their teenager is separating from them and developing new social circles. And although most teenagers are excited about this time in their lives, some are saddened or miss the safety that they had in their childhoods. [More]

Let it Go or Let Them Know? When to Speak Up

15. April 2014 05:55 by Casey Truffo | Comments

letit goor let them know whento speak up

Some of these people become obese over time, but even those who do not may overeat or misuse food for emotional reasons. Recent information from the Food Research and Action Center cites several studies that suggest that food insecurity (people who do not have enough food to eat on a regular basis) and overweight and/or obesity coexist in as many as 1/3 of women.
