Disciplining good attitudes in your children

Remember the nursery rhyme about the little girl who had a little curl? It goes like this, "There was a little girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. And when she was good, she was very very good, and when she was bad, she was horrid."


How to keep the lines of communication open with your teenager

One of the most common mistakes of parenthood is to be drawn into verbal battles with our children. These usually leave us exhausted and without any added advantage. What we want to say is don't yield to this impulse. Don't argue with your teen. Don't subject them to perpetual threats, finger-wagging accusations and insulting indictments. And most importantly, don't nag them endlessly.

Your home doesn't have to be a battle zone pitting parents against children. Here are some ideas for making peace.


The role of mothers

‘Motherhood' as I see, is a gift. It is a calling and a vocation from God. But, like all gifts, we have a choice of appreciating it, accepting it, and cherishing the responsibilities and joys it brings, or considering it an encumbrance, a duty or even a burden. Our attitude must be examined.

Parenting pre-schoolers

Being a good parent seems to have become more difficult in recent years. It never has been all that easy in the first place, of course.


Single parenting

Parenting in itself is a difficult role but single parents have an even more arduous task ahead of them. They have to play their own role as well as the role of the absent parent.
