Toddler acting up? Relax, mama—she’s normal April 25, 2017 at 01:13AM

“The early years are about teaching, not punishing. When parents have realistic expectations about their child’s capabilities, they can guide behavior in very sensitive and effective ways.” My response to those well-meaning but child free "advisors", please stop prompting me to punish my child for throwing a tantrum fit. You will get it when you are parenting one day 😭

Dirt and Boogers, Messy Motherhood April 17, 2017 at 12:36AM

Yes, to heal and get over the past is probably best.
via Facebook "This is for all of you parents who lived through difficult childhoods, difficult years--through trauma (however you would define it), through neglect, through war—especially, but not necessarily, as children. This is for all of you who had to do whatever you needed to do to survive and now you are out on the other side. You made it with a lot of grit and effort. Your life is calm. It is good. And you are working hard as a parent to raise your children, whether they are toddlers, teens or young adults."

The sad reason why so many mothers take selfies with their kids April 16, 2017 at 02:07PM

"But another reason for dads to take more photos of mums is that every time they do it they tell the mother of their children that she is important. In a culture like ours, dominated by the image, photography is a way to demonstrate that women and women's lives are worth documenting just as much as men's. By excluding women from this culture, we give the impression that dad is the important one and mum is barely worth noticing. Without even realising it, kids will internalise the belief that dad's interaction with them is so important it needs to be immortalised, whereas mum, well, when is dinner ready and where are my clean socks?" Thank you, Tze-Win Lai. For videoing all the special moments between Abby and me.

Childhood Trauma Leads To Lifelong Chronic Illness -- So Why Isn't The Medical Community Helping Patients? April 15, 2017 at 10:29PM

"My physician explained that ongoing adversity in childhood leads to a chronic state of “fight, flight or freeze.” Researchers at Yale had recently shown that when inflammatory stress hormones flood a child’s body and brain, they alter the genes that oversee our stress reactivity, re-setting the stress response to “high” for life. This increases the risk of inflammation, which manifests later in cancer, heart disease, and autoimmune diseases like mine..."

How a Parent’s Affection Shapes a Child’s Happiness for Life April 07, 2017 at 10:42PM

"Higher self-esteem, improved academic performance, better parent-child communication, and fewer psychological and behavior problems have been linked to this type of affection. On the other hand, children who do not have affectionate parents tend to have lower self esteem and to feel more alienated, hostile, aggressive, and anti-social."
