How to Obtain Limited-Scope Legal Assistance for Your Divorce

If you are seeking true, unbundled legal representation for your divorce, your best bet may not be the storefront legal office that promises to take you through the process for anywhere from $99 to $399.

I'm Having a "Geriatric Pregnancy." Am I Really At Risk?

geriatric pregnancy

There are many things that could use a facelift within the birth world, but one of the most disturbing things to me is the language that is used to speak to and of pregnant people. It’s absolutely incredible the level of disrespect and twisted thinking passed down in the mere way we talk about pregnancy and the entire reproductive journey. Our medical system has diagnostic words like "failure to progress," "failure to thrive," and "incompetent cervix." These terms are not reserved for the  worst of the worst either.

The Terrible Trio

The Terrible Trio

Like it or not, there are three things you simply cannot make a child do. You cannot make him eat, you cannot make him sleep, and you cannot make him use the toilet. Ironically, many of the power struggles parents face with their toddler and preschool boys are about precisely these issues. Anytime a challenge involves your son's body, he is in control of what happens. Your job is to set the stage, teach the skills, and let your son do the rest.

Your Asperger Child: Diagnosis

Defenders of Reality

When parents seek help for their child, they encounter varied opinions – he'll outgrow it, leave him alone, it's no big deal, he just wants attention, and so on. Many professionals try to work with the Asperger child as if his disorder is like other developmental disorders, but it is quite different. In most cases, there is a great misunderstanding by many people of the needs of these special individuals.

Change Limits as Your Child Grows

Change Limits as Your Child Grows

Trees that bend do a lot better in storms than their more brittle, rigid cousins. Life, and parenting, are never predictable, and flexibility is one of the greatest strengths you can build in yourself. Firmness is not the same as rigidity. Don't enforce limits just because once upon a time you decided it was a limit—you may need to reevaluate, or provide exceptions in cases of need.

Dyslexia and the High-Schooler

Dyslexia and the High-Schooler

By the time students reach high school, many have managed to camouflage their dyslexia with well-developed strategies or deceptions that cover up academic lapses. Others continue to have problems and may suffer from low self-esteem or depression. And since distractibility, dreaminess, and lack of motivation are age-typical behaviors, it's not always easy to separate real learning problems from adolescent angst.

Why Are Girls So Stressed?

By the time they enter middle school, many girls are staggering under the pressure of more than just weighty backpacks. They also face jam-packed schedules, hours of homework, heightened expectations, demanding social lives, and far too little sleep. For this generation of girls, the process of maturing into successful young women has become too intensely charged.
