    Oh, sleep. The always sought after prize of adulthood. Somewhere along the line we stop trying to avoid sleep and realize it’s pretty much the best thing ever. For parents, there just never seems to be enough. Sleep is almost even optional… not in the sense that we get to choose whether we […]

by Nicholeon January 16,2014 in Health and WellnessJust For FunMommy CareMoms Who InspireParenthood

breastfeeding

I discovered the work of Gwen Dewar, Ph.D when ParentingScience.com covered her 2008 work on breastfeeding on demand, also known as “baby-led” and “on-cue” feeding. The basis of this practice is that baby, with the means they have developmentally at their disposal, initiates feedings with their mother.

Child New Year

  I’m still on the gratitude kick (even if I’ve failed miserably at keeping up with my daily 365 Days of Gratitude writing on Facebook).

    Thirteen year old Logan LaPlante doesn’t go to school. Technically, he homeschools but he and his family go about it in a different way than most homeschooling families. He calls his self-developed education “hackschooling” and many other families are doing the same thing. In this Tedx video, Logan demonstrates how schools today are […]
