Re: “The Power of Play

I loved that you wrote about using intelligent humor that didn't belittle him, but that came out of really listening to him and was his kind of play. And I liked that the goal was to reconnect to him first, so that his feelings could pour out, and then he could absorb and re-remember that he really could do it. Great article, thanks! Megan

Re: “It's Time to Hang the Hooter Hider Out to Dry

Yes!!! These comtraptions are such big business right now & so ridiculous, too. I think it also encourages new moms/moms-to-be when they see another mother just nursing her baby without covering up & making the act of nursing a baby into something that needs to be covered up & hidden away. We need to be able to feed our babies without carrying a tarp with us wherever we go.

Re: “It's Time to Hang the Hooter Hider Out to Dry

"Hooter Hiders"?!?! Says it all, really...these are sex objects. Isn't sex supposed to be in "private"? Seems people cannot fathom they are as precious to a baby's survival as they are a source of delight and pleasure in our culture.
I never covered when breast feeding. A couple of times though, people I cared about were shocked and uncomfortable in the presence of my exposed breast feeding. Their comfort mattered to me. I took it into consideration.

Re: “Why You Should Wrestle with Your Daughter

That's terrific advice. I'm a sixty year old woman whose fondest childhood memories are roughhousing with my dad and brothers. I do think it helped me develop a more adventurous and confident character.

Re: “What We Want For Our Children

What a great story. You shared with your child your true LOVE OF MUSIC, not the boring necessity of practice, practice, practice. And by seeing your love of music, he got the message, and his heart strings began to resonate with yours. However, not all parents can have the time to practice Thus, I do not fault those parents who force their children to play an instrument. The benefits of even forced practice can be everlasting. IT SURE BEATS VIDEO GAMES!

Re: “Intentional Solo Pregnancy

Beware intended solo parents, especially those in California. If you end up meeting someone that you chose to let live with you and your child, and that person develops a bond with your child, you may soon be in for a custody battle. A "presumed parent" can make demands of custody time and even sue for child support. No matter if it is a couple months or a couple years, that person who shares your child's life could soon demand and be granted the same rights as if they gave birth to the child, even if there are already two parents in the picture!

Re: “Are Your Tweens and Teens Spending too Much Time Staring at Their Phones?

Great article! I definitely needed the reminder to stop an focus when my kids are seeking my attention. I do believe that they tend to do as we do instead of do as we say. :)
