Q. Our kids have issues with food. One will only eat this, the other will only eat that, and they get so stuck on one thing, they refuse to try anything new. How do I get some nutrition into my children without a major battle? A. There are two things you must never get into a battle over with your children, and that is their input and output. In other words, do not argue about food and [...]

Just a Thought- Philosophy Refresher by Judith Martin-Straw

Just a Thought- Philosophy Refresher by Judith Martin-Straw

Mary Daly died at just the right time on January 3 last week. I have been heartbroken and weary with all the funerals I have attended lately, but when I heard that one of my favorite philosophers had left the planet, it was the cue that I needed to pick up her books again and remind myself why she was so inspiring. I first discovered Mary Daly on the shelves of a used bookstore in Long Beach. [...]

Just A Thought- Honesty and Policy

Just A Thought- Honesty and Policy

I think of myself as an honest person. I believe that lying is wrong, and that telling the truth is the best way to go. I recently had a situation where it was brought home to me very clearly that honesty is not always the best idea in every situation and it has made me reconsider the policy itself. “Mommy I can’t breathe.” Four of the most terrifying words in the English language, [...]

Q. How do you teach your child how to be angry? I fully agree with Lyman Abbott, but am stymied by this issue. Anger seems to beget more anger around our house, sadly. A. Thanks, Colleen, for this question. I know that you are not alone in wondering how to teach your child to be angry. Most people, whether aware of it or not, think that children should be seen and not heard especially when [...]

Just a Thought- Well Worth the Weight

Just a Thought- Well Worth the Weight

The moment that I am struggling with the fact that it’s too cold to open a window, and it’s dark at five o’clock in the afternoon, the mail carrier shows up with five pounds of baklava. Yep, really, five whole pounds. There is winter, and then there are holidays. It is of course a gift, sent from a thoughtful relative, who wants to sweeten the celebration. As I am the only person around [...]

Just A Thought – It’s a Wonderful Life

Just A Thought – It’s a Wonderful Life

It Really is a Wonderful Life- I always find it fascinating how the stories we are drawn to become our stories. Is it that we already know, at some intuitive level that this plot twist is coming up in our own text? Or that loving the story as much as we do, we find a way to play the role in real life? Think about your favorite novel or your favorite fairy tale, and consider there’s an [...]

Q- Sibling rivalry at our house is intense. Both my husband and I come from big families, and while we only have two kids, it seems they spend just as much energy competing with each other as we used to spend on the whole crowd. How can we put an end to this constant contest? Putting an end to sibling rivalry takes patience and understanding. As parents we must understand that siblings will [...]
