Pregnancy is an exciting time, but it can also be a confusing one, especially as you try to strike a balance between your job and all of the physical, mental and emotional changes you’re going through.

It’s no secret that a child’s education plays a significant role in her development during early childhood and is a determining factor in her success as an adult.

Helping young children to acquire the skills they need to progress and develop along the prescribed timeline is one of a parent’s most important jobs.

Extroverts are considered to be very outgoing and social individuals, and they draw their energy from being around other people.

Spanking: Just the word is enough to make some people shudder with the memory of a punishment that went too far.

Although fewer children are spanked today than in the past, the practice still persists, despite evidence of the harm it causes.

Being the oldest child in a family can come with its fair share of enjoyment, but it also comes with a lot of responsibility.

Sure, the oldest will always be the first child to the parents, and the one that the siblings look up to.

It seems as if the world has a view of grandparents that includes being staid and predictable.  Maybe this year you ought to zig when they expect you to zag.

Perhaps it’s time to mix up your standard Christmas traditions, and introduce some new customs that will surprise your family and keep the holiday feeling fresh for you.

You want to give your baby every opportunity to grow and develop into a happy and healthy child.  The first few months of life are important – during the fifth and 20th weeks of life, your baby’s brain generates between 50,000 and 100,000 new brain cells.

When you first bring a new baby home from the hospital, discipline is probably the farthest thing from your mind.

As he gets older and begins to assert himself more, however, it becomes apparent that a strong, effective disciplinary strategy is imperative.
