But unless women and men both say this is unacceptable, things will not change.  → Read More

Stress in the Family: Helping Our Children to Cope
One of the greatest gifts we can give to our children is the ability to cope. Much as we would like our children to have stress-free lives, that wish is not realistic.

When we are stressed by family issues or financial challenges, we forget that the children are still taking their cues from us. In fact, those times of hardship and struggle provide us with the greatest learning experiences and they can do the same for our children.When your household is in turmoil, remember that your children are looking to you as an example of adult behavior. We are fortunate to be raising children in an era that encourages communication between adults and children. Coping skills are taught and you can teach them.  → Read More
