4 things your newborn wants you to know

Your newborn baby is cute, for sure, but it doesn't seem like there is much going on in there. The baby eats. The baby cries. The baby fills diapers. The baby sleeps. However, your baby is quite intelligent for one who is such a novice at life. If he or she could talk, this is what you might hear.

Even after five years of marriage, those feelings haven’t changed. In fact, I realize I need him more than ever.

5 signs you're raising an entitled kid

5 signs you're raising an entitled kid

As parents, we are not created equal. We enter parenthood from a broad spectrum of backgrounds, with varying beliefs. We show affection differently and, often, our disciplinary views are not the same.
