As we stand up for International Day of the Girl Child, October 11, I have decided it’s time to celebrate that often dreaded period of a girl's development: her teen years. I want to inject a new word into that conversation around parenting girls. Read full article

<a href="/blogs/kirsty-rice/2012/04/26/my-boy-henry-hotdog-and-an-irrational-perfect-love">My Boy Henry Hotdog and an Irrational, Perfect Love</a>

Yesterday when I picked up the little travelers from school, Henry Hotdog's kindergarten teacher had something to tell me. "You have to tell your Mummy about the poem you wrote today Henry - can you tell her?" The hotdog considered the proposal for a moment and then proceeded to pull my head down towards his.

Birthday Happiness for Our Ten Year Old, and For Us

<a href="/blogs/yvettevignando/2011/11/28/birthday-happiness-for-our-ten-year-old-and-for-us">Birthday Happiness for Our Ten Year Old, and For Us</a>

This post is filed under "Love:" Last year, perhaps on this very day, I wrote about a surprise birthday present for Mr 8, soon to be Mr 9. We so enjoyed surprising him with his present – and his delight has continued throughout the year so it was absolutely the gift-that-keeps-on-giving. On Friday when we took him out for an advance 10 year old celebration, he told us he is keeping last year’s gift forever, “for the memories”. Read full article

Podcast interview on 4BC about a mother who said she loved one child more than another. Is that really the case or is this just a reaction to one child being harder to parent? Should parents worry about this? Does gender come into it? Let us know what you think. Read full article

I Say I Love You and Kiss My Teenage Boys Every Day

<a href="/blogs/annette-reuss/2011/04/03/i-say-i-love-you-and-kiss-my-teenage-boys-every-day">I Say I Love You and Kiss My Teenage Boys Every Day</a>

Do you kiss your kids often? Do you tell them you love them every day? I do. They kiss me back and tell me they love me too. Often this happens more than once a day. My kids are 17 and almost 19. I grew up in an environment where the words “I love you” were never said, well almost never said. When I was 15 my mother told me she loved me in an awkward moment in the bathroom. I didn’t say it back. Read full article

My Judgemental Mind - Two Dads in the Supermarket

<a href="/blogs/yvettevignando/2010/11/06/my-judgemental-mind-two-dads-in-the-supermarket">My Judgemental Mind - Two Dads in the Supermarket</a>

Last night I went shopping for groceries at 7.30 p.m. Not my favourite way to spend a Friday night. I felt a little guilty because that meant my husband had to cook the dinner for everyone at 7 pm when he got home and I knew Mr 8 would be starving too. On the other hand - why should I feel guilty? I had worked all day and driven children to activities and was now shopping for a dinner party on Saturday night - guilt trip over... But then I saw a dad - I'll call him Mr Cool. Read full article
