More on living with a teenager

In my conversations with parents of teenagers, I often hear remarks like "It's so stressful having a teenager at home", or "They drive me up the wall", or "They annoy me to no end", or "My son locks himself in the room and ignores my knocks on the door. What shall I do? Shall I just ignore him and let him be?"


To spank or not to spank

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.


Year off

Our teen wants to take a year off after SPM before furthering his studies. Is this a good idea?


Understanding your child's personality

The art of good parenting begins with the fundamental skill of seeing through the eyes of the child, of sharing the child's view or reality, feelings and hopes.
