Being a mom comes with a lot of responsibility and it's often hard to turn “off” mommy-mode and accept that being a mom is part of who you are but not ALL you are. If you feel guilty when dropping your kids off at daycare while you go to work, know that you’re not alone, and while this feeling is all too common, there are ways to cope.

5 MUST-KNOW Tips for New Parents

Becoming a new parent is an exciting time in a couple’s life. You are about to have a new addition to your family, and this addition is bound to bring you lots of joy and happiness. While there is no doubt that there is no substitute for the joy that new parents feel when they have a child, it is also the fact that having a baby can be a challenging experience. New parents not only have to deal with the changes in their lifestyle once a new baby arrives, but they also have to deal with the change in schedule, sleep patterns and priorities.  For example, most new parents suffer from chronic sleep deprivation which can lead to mood changes, irritability, loss of concentration and inability to cope with the new responsibilities. Couples often end up arguing with each other because they are unable to cope with the changes a new baby brings into their life. This does not mean they do not love the baby or that they regret having a child. It just means that new parents need some time to learn how to cope with the changes in their life.

Divorce in your 20s – Now What?

All of us dream of falling in love and finding our soul mate. This is especially true when we are young. That is probably why young people fall in love very easily. They believe that all it takes to live is love and laughter. However, the sad reality is that these young couples in their 20s rarely know that marriage requires dedication and hard work. Young people often jump the gun when it comes to tying the knot, but once they’ve taken this very important step in their life at a very young age, they begin to realize the things that they have missed out on. All of a sudden, they would have this desire to have a career, follow their dreams, hang out with their friends, go on a world tour, etc. The commitment of marriage begins to seem like a burden at this point, and as the novelty of being in love wears out, so does the marriage. That is why today we see many people who marry young are divorced by the time they are in their 20s. But that does not mean that life should come to a standstill. Getting a divorce does not mean your world [...]

2018 Summer Travel Tips for Your Family

A summer vacation or a road trip can be a lot of fun but when the entire family is traveling, you will have some serious responsibility. Where will you travel, how will you get there, what will you do and what’s needed to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone? Doing some preliminary work will help you answer these questions and have the time of your life. When’s the Best Time for a Summer Vacation?
