An interesting article:
LITTLE PRINCESS IS SEXIST
“Calling all fathers: if you have a daughter and have called her “princess” or treat her like one, you are sexist and inhibiting her ability to be an independent and self-reliant woman, according to a study released by two psychology professors at Marquette University.
Similarly, if you are a daughter and allow someone to call you princess or accept special treatment, you are also sexist. "I would encourage people to pay attention to their habitual way of thinking … and to ask themselves whether their gendered habits limit them in fully developing their potential and the potential of those around them." Professors Stephen Franzoi and Debra Oswald lay out these extensive claims in their article “Experiencing Sexism and Young Women’s Body Esteem,” written by the duo back in 2012. Two years later, their study is gaining recognition thanks to their recently publicity on the website Medium.
Franzoi and Oswald’s studies suggest that “young women’s body esteem is affected by hostile or even ‘benevolent sexism’ from family members in everyday experiences.” They claim family dynamics that appear outwardly positive to the general population can actually be a form of discrimination that undermines gender equality. “I would encourage people to pay attention to their habitual way of thinking … and to ask themselves whether their gendered habits limit them in fully developing their potential and the potential of those around them,” Franzoi said.
Such limiting, sexist acts could include allowing your daughter to remain financially dependent on her family, encouraging her to use cosmetics, graciously holding the door open for her, or making her feel “special” in anyway.”

When is a Fever Dangerous? Have you ever wondered when a child's fever become dangerous? #ad Today on the bog I am talking about one of the scariest times I had as a new parent.

Our little ones are constantly looking to us to see how we respond to creatures in our world. We might not always be aware of this but we can be sure they are watching.
When we react with fear or horror, they come to believe they too should be afraid of the unusual or different because they have observed us recoiling in panic, alarm or disgust.
While we can't be expected to override our deep-seated fears on the spot, we can tone down our reactions enough to normalize our behaviour and convey to them that not everyone feels the same way we do. Talking about the critters characteristics and why we find them so perturbing will open the conversation up to draw out our children's thoughts and opinions rather than imposing ours on them.
Perhaps in doing so, we too will find some appealing qualities in the things we've feared because we're given the 'gift' of a fresh opportunity to see them through the eyes of our children.
No guarantees, but you never know.

Just because she doesn’t parent the same way you parent doesn’t make her any less. Just because you parent differently doesn’t make you any more.

Children and rainbows are both unique , colorful and exciting to observe. Yet, there are challenges that our children face which sometimes overshadows their innocence but it’s there. Might we suggest keep looking for those hidden special characteristics in our children just like you look for the rainbow after a rain because the beauty is there !
👉🏼Raising kids is so hard.
I remember when the boys were little. I would say...”I can’t wait until their older and more independent.” Boy am I regretting that statement.
My son and I Worked out together, but right before this we had a tough love ❤️ talk. My advice to you is...don’t be their friend, be their parent. Yes it’s hard but if not they will walk all over you. However, In the long run they will thank you. 😌
Wired up 🏪 #firstname.lastname@example.org Pregnant? Wondering whether to get help at labour ward? You are not an inconvenience. After last week's events I believe even more so that it's always a good idea to have your pregnancy worries checked out - Injections and indifference: my week 28 diary, live now. Link in bio.... 'Pregnancy is wonderful. It's also really hard and the most responsible job I've ever had. Talk about anxiety. I've chatted about that, and a trip I had to make to hospital, (all fine now) over at FashBaby as part of my 28 week diary - link in profile. Apparently your brain releases a hormone when you are pregnant so you naturally worry more. Have you? I certainly have 🙄' #pregnantworries#anxiety#mentalhealth#pregnanthealth#28weekspregnant

I often am asked why we homeschool. I generally give a short answer such as "because the Lord told us to and I don't want to end up in a whale." I don't say that to be snarky, I say it because there are SO many reasons we choose homeschooling. Today, I love that we homeschool because this 6 year old is insanely smart when it comes to engineering. His brain is able to see and build things that some adults can't figure out. He would not be able to explore these things in public school to the degree that he can at home. Currently he is into wrecking balls. I'm pretty sure we have watched every YouTube video on wrecking balls. He loves to draw pictures of whatever his current love is which brings me to another reason I love and choose homeschooling. He was so excited about his picture he says to his big brother "Nick! Look at my wrecking ball picture!" The 10 year old stops doing his school work, looks up and says "Wow! Did you draw that? Bring that over here so I can see it better." The 6 year old is beaming as he brings his picture over and his big brother goes on and on about how great it is. They love eachother so much! They will also fight to the death but at the end of they day, they really do love eachother. My hope is that because they spend so much time together now that they will see value in maintaining those relationships when they are grown. #homeschool#homeschoolmom#homeschooling#school#education#brother#brothers#brotherlylove#boys#boymom#engineer#engineering#youtube#parenting
