dealingwith father s dayafter losinga child
Many people have lost a parent, but very few people have had to deal with the pain of losing a child. It can be a really difficult thing to go through if you're a parent, and sometimes, the pain that fathers deal with during it is left behind. Both mothers and fathers have to work through the heartache, albeit differently, so it's important to take a look at that pain and see what we can do in order to help our way through it. Father's Day is coming up, and this day can be incredibly painful and heartbreaking for fathers who have lost a child in some way, shape or form. [More]

How to Know if You're Ready to Have a Baby

howto knowif you re readyto havea baby
How will you really know when you are ready? Great question. There are many things to consider; however, as you've probably been told, "There is no good time to have a baby." Are either of you still in school? And if so, how much time will that take away from parenting?

effectof chronic illnessof childrenon marital relationofa couple
Chronic illness or disability is not only challenging for children, but parents dealing with such children also have to tolerate constant pressure and stress. This not only impacts their nerves and overall health, but also affects their marital relation. Many authors overlook the fact while discussing the long-term effects of chronic illness on children, but this is a fact that early childhood developmental delays or sickness can damage the marital relation of a couple beyond repair. Apart from the constant stress and challenges associated with the early childhood illness, lack of awareness on this subject is also responsible for stressed martial relation after a child is diagnosed with chronic illness or disability (Lana, 2013).

the good father
As a group, few have made more progress than fathers in the past 50 years. Granted, there were always good fathers out there – those who were more involved than simply putting money in the bank. However, social and cultural norms that guide the collective behavior of fathers have shifted radically. While many still follow outdated stereotypes, others have adopted the more progressive roles within the family and as parents. [More]

dealingwith early childhood developmental delays
Parenthood becomes more challenging than ever when it comes to dealing with children with developmental delays. It is not only frustrating for the child but parents also have to protect their child from the piercing eyes of the world. It is difficult for children to understand why they can’t do simple things that other children of their age can do easily. This is the reason that children with developmental delays have poor communication and interaction skills (Ramous, 2008). [More]
