Unsupervised Play

Unsupervised Play

Sometimes I can’t believe how fast kids grow up. My son is turning 4 this August and I get amazed at the fact that he’s gonna be in kindergarten in a little over a year. He’s really turning into a little man full of thousands of questions as well as thousands of new ideas. He is becoming very independent BUT […]

Bring More Into Your Life Through Gratitude…

Bring More Into Your Life Through Gratitude…

I have recently found myself taking a look at the women around me and have been amazed at their strengths. I am very grateful to be surrounded by women who have faced many hardships in their lives; some have lost children and brothers, while others have lost lovers and companions. Some of these women have been molested or raped, yet […]

Memorial Day- What Does It Mean To You?

Memorial Day- What Does It Mean To You?

Saudi Women Demand More Rights!

Saudi Women Demand More Rights!

When it comes to oppression of women, not much surprises me anymore. I can easily pick up a newspaper, glance through a few pages and find several stories of how women still have not achieved the level of dignity they demand. Perhaps, even easier is to focus attention outside the western world — overt, blatant oppression can usually be found […]

Should I Stay or Should I Go:  How a Woman Responds to her Husband’s Infidelity under the Lens of Public Scrutiny

When I first heard that Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger were separating, I wondered what had gone wrong. Then a few hours later, when I learned that he had fathered a child outside of his marriage ten years ago, I understood. Though some in the media were concerned about whether Arnold would continue his action hero franchise and whether Maria […]

Changing the Culture Around Pregnancy.

Changing the Culture Around Pregnancy.

I recently read an online article about Kate Hudson and how she hates her figure now that she’s pregnant. While I can relate, I also get a bit frustrated when I read or hear about women who complain about their changing bodies while pregnant. I understand that every woman wants to look attractive, don’t get me wrong, I totally ‘get’ […]

Most recently, […]
