I’m obsessed with watching my kids on the video monitor. Am I on track to be a helicopter mom? Or worse - a bulldozer mom?
Charges against Maryland parents who allowed their children to walk home from a park alone have been dropped by Child Protective Services.
Actress Alicia Silverstone’s new parenting book is called ‘The Kind Mama.’ But it will only make its readers feel lousy.
Welcome to the kooky world of RIE Parenting (that is, Resources for Infant Educarers), a backlash movement against attachment parenting.
Mayim Bialik is a pretty cool Jewish woman. Not only is the actress, who managed to remake her career after becoming a teen star on 1990s television series “Blossom” successful, but she is also successful in a unique way. She earned a doctorate in neuroscience and has made a career out of being that sharp, funny, nerdy character many of us can relate to and identify with. She currently co-stars on “The Big Bang Theory” as neuroscientist Amy Farrah Fowler, and has managed to write a new book on holistic parenting, slated to come out soon. On top of all that, Bialik is deeply Jewishly engaged, which makes her a real on-screen Hollywood rarity.
Actress Mayim Bialik and her husband, Michael Stone have announced plans to divorce after nine years of marriage.
Like “Big Bang Theory” actress Mayim Bialik, I am an observant Jew, and had my first child while completing my Ph.D. (Mine was in experimental psychology; the actress’ was in neuroscience.) And like Bialik, I endorse and practice many aspects of ‘attachment parenting’: breastfeeding and late weaning, baby-wearing (using a sling), bed-sharing and positive discipline. So I thought I’d be a big fan of her new parenting book, “Beyond the Sling.”
