Talk About Your Kids Much?

This past weekend I was supposed to go on my first “girls weekend” in three years. Instead, I was sick so lounged on the couch with children piled on top of me. But, I did pull up one of my old posts and reflected upon “The Rule”. How much do you talk to your friends about your kids?

My ninety-two-year-old grandmother has given birth to a lot of babies. She had babies in…

I generally believe most people mean well, but simply execute their job poorly sometimes. Sometimes, there are BAD bosses.  This series is intended to address the most common issues with a bad boss and steps you can take to reduce the impact on you both personally and professionally.

The problems we face when we have a bad boss are almost too numerous to mention, but the two biggest of these issues are:

Here comes the bride...zilla, that is!

Getting married is such an exciting time.  The one you love proposes, you honor your best friends by asking them to participate in the big day, the planets align, and all is right with the world.  Until the issues of time and money bring out the worst in you and everyone around you.

When did we get so weird about weddings and all their trappings?  Big, blowout bachelorette parties that involve cross country plane tickets, hotels, limos, embroidered sweat pants, umbrella drinks, and…

Seniors and Technology

Have you seen it? The wonderful video on YouTube showing a senior couple, Bruce and Esther Huffman fromMcMinnville, OR, using a webcam for the first time. I ended up watching the video amazed, not that they

couldn't work a webcam, but how much Bruce still loves his wife.

Technology is a wonderful way for seniors to communicate with their family and friends they do not see on a regular basis.  Prehaps…

In these tough economic times, it’s hard to think about companies being desperate to hire people, but it turns out there are big hiring gaps in the US.  In an interview with Kristin Kelley, VP of Marketing for Randstad US, the world’s second largest staffing firm, she explained how they had thousands of unfilled openings in a number of sectors and careers in the US.  Not to sit around and complain, Randstad has responded to this shortage with an innovative competition to help spur on the…

Getting Fired: Avoiding It and Protecting Yourself when You are Faced with It

One of our biggest fears associated with our employment is facing the possibility of the ultimate rejection: getting fired.  I’m not talking about being laid off.  I’m talking about they don’t dig what you do or how you do it and you are given the pink slip.  It can be devastating on both a personal and professional level.  People I’ve spoken to who have been through this experience often find it difficult to move past it and consequently, let it form their behavior.  That behavior isn’t…

9 Tips to Recognize Child Sexual Abuse



     During the final weeks of school last year, my phone rang a lot. It seems a local teacher here in New York City had been arrested on charges of child pornography.  Parents and the school administration were very concerned that a pedophile may have been in close proximity to their children.  Unfortunately, as a specialist in child sexual abuse, I am often contacted after a problem…

I’m so thrilled to hear that singer Daryl Hall has an amazing new album out!

Remember the wonderful sounds of Hall & Oates?  You’re going to hear, once again, Daryl’s fabulous voice on this album.

You remember him as the lead singer of Hall and Oates who are considered the “Number One Selling Duo” in music history with their…
