How Will You Explain a Tweetup to Your Children?

By Cathy Corcoran - 16th August 2011

Recently I had the privilege of having a catch up with an online friend I had made through Twitter - sometimes called a tweetup. I didn't have as much hesitation as I did with my first meet up a few months back but it was still slightly anxiety-provoking ... When explaining the meeting to my children who were coming along to meet this 'tweep' and her children, I became hesitant, not about the meet up but explaining the context to them. How do I explain that I am meeting someone from the internet? how do I explain that I have never met her before and what are the repercussions and the thoughts our children may have about this situation?

Remarriage with Children - Creating Good Beginnings

By Cathy Corcoran - 1st June 2011

There are pictures of young Amy on the wall and her name is spoken of lovingly; the scene painted sounds like a beautiful family. There are also wedding photos of a couple together. None of them include Amy. The man is Amy’s dad, Daniel; the woman is her dad's fiancee. And this situation has my mind ticking. Australian statistics indicate that for every marriage recorded, 1 in 3 are re-marriages.Of these re-marriages it has been found that nearly half included children under the age of 16 from previous marriages.

P!nk's Latest Music Video - Perfect, or Not?

By Cathy Corcoran - 9th February 2011

P!nk (Alecia Moore) has just released her latest music video for her current song, “Fkin Perfect”, being given airplay. I must confess I'm partial to P!nk and her music. This is because of what she represents and stands for, and the tunes of course. As I was playing the footage on my computer my 6 and 3 year old wanted to look. I do let them listen to P!nk. I know some of her lyrics contain explicit language so I either sing loudly for those songs and cover the swearing, or I don’t let them listen to those but I don’t believe that she should be censored.
