    (Go back to the first part of this article HERE.) Learning how to “best” manage your child’s temper tantrums can make you search for all sorts of strategies. However, I’ll bet that none of those would work as well as you wish it would.

    4 Things You Shouldn’t Do When Your Child Throws A Tantrum (Part 1)

    Learning how to “best” manage your child’s temper tantrums can make you search for all sorts of strategies–Googling about it, asking other parents and seeking your own parents’ (and grandparents’) advice. However, I’ll bet that none of those would work as well as you wish it would. The truth is, there is no “secret” or “magic solution” to handling your child or toddler, especially when they’re throwing a major tantrum. The only person who can tell you what to do is you.

    7 Things You Need To Know Before Weaning Your Child From Breastfeeding (Part 2)

    (Read the first part of this article HERE.) Weaning your child off the breast is (and should be) a personal, well-informed decision. Many moms wean their babies early or stopped pursuing it in order to go back to work while others waited until the child stopped on his own. Only the mother and the child would know when it is time. A breastfeeding advocate like myself wouldn’t dare give advice about stopping your child from nursing, but it’s also important that you take […]

    6 Moments I Wish Never Happened During The Newborn Stage (Part 2)

    (Read the first part of this article HERE.) Like every other mom, I would like to relive a lot of moments during that crazy yet very precious time. Then again, I would definitely wish for my time machine to skip a few moments during my baby’s newborn stage. Heck, I wouldn’t mind if they were erased, even. You know what I mean, moms. There are those times when you simply wish things happened differently, as they didn’t quite live up to […]

    6 Moments I Wish Never Happened During The Newborn Stage (Part 1)

    “They grow up fast,” they all say, and I couldn’t agree more. I’m a stay-at-home mom to my toddler and I feel like his baby stage flew by too fast, despite being with him almost every minute of his life.

From projectile vomiting to forgetting the kid […]

    I may be feeling a little tired from running after a toddler now, but I can honestly say that I’ve gotten a whole lot better at this whole parenting thing (so has my husband, who was admittedly an even bigger baby during the time our son was born).

    Surprise! You’ve gotten an invitation to a close friend’s kid’s 1st birthday party. You’re probably excited and committed to go, and yet there’s one problem: What do you get the kid? Many moms resort to buying clothes because they’re the easier choice, but then you realize that the child will already probably be getting a whole pile of clothes from his family members alone and you just want to get something that the child could actually enjoy and play with—like […]
