Where is the Village? Keeping our babies safe…

  We are failing. Not intentionally of course. Nevertheless, the fact of the matter is we are unsuccessful in our plight to keep our children safe. I get it. Especially from the perspective of a single parent who has been placed in a position to “do what I have to do” far too many times…

Why Incentives for Good Grades Might Be a Great Thing

  It’s report card time! I’ve been seeing many parents presenting questions like “why should I reward my child for doing what they are supposed to do anyway?” My response to that is clear and simple… To propose such a question proves that you as a human being function on a biased and unrealistic level….

Cold, Flu, or Allergies: How to Tell the Difference

  This is the time of year I love and hate the most. Hot chocolate, Christmas movies, onesie pajamas, and home-made pies are just a  few reasons I love the fall.

My Son Could Be Laquan McDonald…

  The Van Dyke trial has taken over my mind for one major reason… My son could be Laquan McDonald. Lost, confused, alone, and suffering from mental illness. My son could one day carry a knife for protection (whether it’s from possible real threats or one that his mind created due to bipolar disorder, schizoaffective…

Why Your Breastmilk is Trash…

  Yup. I said it. Trash. Listen Mama’s we all know breast milk is the best milk. But is it good for your babies when you are eating garbage? Nah, my sista. It is not. If breastfeeding is easy peasy for you, chances are you are not really doing the right thing. I breastfed my…

Love was…

  Love is so many things. I can be super cliché’ and talk about it being patient, kind, and everything in between. However, that’s not realistic all the time if you ask me. Sometimes I’m impatient with the one I love. Maybe I’m not so kind in an emotional moment. (Afterall, I am a cancer)….
