I miss the "village days" of parenting -- where you could expect everyone on the "block" to love (and discipline) any child as their own. Nowadays, we like to say, "It's none of my business." But if we see a child in physical or emotional pain, isn't it everyone's business?!
While you may hate me for saying it, my life as a black mother may be way different from yours.
This brave mom decided to give back to other moms after her sweet daughter died at only 8 days old.
My daughter is wonderful. But the closer she gets to her upcoming 10th birthday, the more I've been noticing a little bit of attitude slipping out every now and then. However, a new book I read promises to break the drama cycle between mothers and daughters.
No two mothers have the same journey -- and that's what makes motherhood so unique.
Am I a traitor for disliking the month that celebrates us?
February is all about reflecting on black history. As a mother, I believe our black history is a tale of painful beginnings followed by triumphant gains. Having Michelle Obama in the White House it is a great reminder of how far we've come. Take some time to celebrate you!
I really couldn't believe the recent spread in Vanity Fair heralding the next generation of Hollywood starlets. Couldn't they have even picked ONE person of color?!
