Baby Born After 19 Years as an Embryo
News from Yahoo! Canada Shine On:

Kelly Burke and Liam James. Photo courtesy of the Reproductive Science Center.Kelly Burke of Virginia is grateful to be a new mom at 45. She gave birth to son Liam James nine months ago, but it’s not her age, these days, that’s the amazing part. What’s noteworthy here is that her baby was the result of a donated embryo—the second oldest cryopreserved human embryo in history, her doctors believe.

“He’s my little miracle,” Burke, a single mom and research scientist with NASA, told Yahoo! Shine.

Even doctors at the Reproductive Science Center of the San Francisco Bay Area, which oversaw the transfer of the donated embryos, were a bit amazed at the viability of the 19-year-old embryos.

Parenting columnist sues after he is targeted by Kentucky psychology board

Parenting columnist sues after he is targeted by Kentucky psychology board
News from Washington Post:

John Rosemond has been dispensing parenting advice in his newspaper column since 1976, making him one of the longest-running syndicated columnists in the country.

But some Kentucky authorities want to put him in a time out.

In May, Kentucky’s attorney general and its Board of Examiners of Psychology told Rosemond his parenting column — which regularly offers old-school advice and shows little tolerance for any kind of parental coddling — amounts to the illegal practice of psychology.

They want him to agree to a cease-and-desist order. In particular, they want Rosemond to stop identifying himself as a psychologist, because he is not a licensed psychologist in Kentucky. They also suggest that columns written in a question-and-answer format are a particular concern because they are akin to providing direct mental health services.

Rosemond, an author of 11 parenting books who has a master’s degree in psychology from Western Illinois and is a licensed psychologist in his home state of North Carolina, sees the board’s letter as an effort at censorship and is filing a lawsuit Tuesday in federal court seeking to bar the state from taking any action against him. His column is syndicated through McClatchy-Tribune News services and is estimated to run in more than 200 newspapers.

He is represented by the Arlington, Va.-based Institut…………… continues on Washington Post

Good Parenting: Do as I Do (Sometimes)
News from Huffington Post:

The adage “practice what you preach” applies to parenting in a very meaningful way. Children copy and mimic their parents’ mannerisms, attitudes, and behavior. Even the most oppositional child has the parents’ imprint, whether they consciously imitate them or not. This fact holds parents to the highest standard possible in terms of how they model and conduct their lives. Children are always watching and learning, actively and passively. As a parent, you are called to task to observe and regulate your own behavior so that your children emulate the values, attitudes, and social behavior you are attempting to teach.

Oftentimes, parents model inappropriate behaviors without realizing it. For example, I was once sitting at my computer, writing a journal article, and my son, who was 7-years-old at the time, approached me with a question. I didn’t look up, just continued typing, and responded to his question. So, it was no surprise that a few years later, when I approached him with a question while he was playing a video game, that he didn’t miss a beat, had no eye contact with me, continued playing his game and…………… continues on Huffington Post

‘Everything will be ok. I love you.’ Parenting after Trayvon

‘Everything will be ok. I love you.’ Parenting after Trayvon
News from MSNBC:

(Courtesy of Melissa Harris-Perry)

In the aftermath of the not-guilty verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman, I have tried to offer and elicit analysis of the legal, historical and political meaning of the case and its outcome. But in this case, the political is deeply personal. I have experienced the killing of Trayvon Martin, this trial, and this verdict as a political scientist and television host. But I have also felt it, in my gut, as the parent of a black child.

I am far from alone in this experience. Parents of children of color are struggling to process their own fears and cultivate meaningful conversations with their children about personal safety, about the history of injustice in our country, and about sustaining hope and a sense of youthful exuberance and possibility. Parents of white children, trying to raise conscious, engaged, fair-minded kids, are seeking their own ways of talking with their children. We don’t want to be a generation of handwringing elders who make our children afraid to grow and explore. We do not want to nurture hatred, fear, or disinvestment in the collective project of America……………. continues on MSNBC

The history and anthropology of birth and parenting
News from Boing Boing:

I’m reading a ton of baby and pregnancy books right now, preparing both for the October birth of my daughter and an upcoming BoingBoing feature about evidence-based books for science-minded soon-to-be-parents. After reading this interview at The New Inquiry, I really want to check out The Motherhood Archives — a documentary about the ways culture shapes and reshapes how we understand the biology of birth and the growth of an infant. From the Marxist origins of Lamaze, to the early-20th-century feminists who pushed for pain-free birth, to the rise of the birth center, The Motherhood Archives sounds like a fascinating exploration of how different generations think and rethink the same ideas and an anthropological assessment of what “the right way” to give birth and raise children really means.

News from New York Daily News:

PhiladelphiaPolice via YouTube

Parents turn their sons in after seeing a video put out by The Philadelphia Police Department, who was seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects who robbed a 9 year-old 3rd grade student in East Germantown.

Parents turned their teenage sons in to cops after seeing surveillance footage of them allegedly stealing cash from a young girl, police have said.

Two couples from Philadelphia, Pa, contacted officers after seeing the images, allegedly of their sons taking $ 13 from a nine-year-old girl, during a television news appeal.

Police released surveillance video of the crime. 

Cops put out a media request for help in identifying the suspects after the theft outside Jaquez Mini Market in East Germantown on Friday night.

Video shows the girl paying at the counter as the boys eye up her possessions. She then walks out, into the path of the boys, who grab her wallet and run.

Tough Love and Parenting
News from AllAfrica.com:

It is the wish of every parent to be able to provide for their children and give them the life and trinkets they themselves were not able to have. One would think it is the natural order of things to aspire for an improved standard of living for their offspring. However, the million dollar question is, at what point does providing for your children and acquiescing to their many indulgences cross the line to what may be termed spoiling them?

Of late I have noted with concern particularly with the young generation of parents that they seem to have missed the point. Just last week, after knocking off from church I dashed by a coffee shop in Avondale from where I had ordered a birthday cake for my little girl who had just turned four and what I saw shocked me.

There was a young girl barely out of her diapers, her mother in tow and the youngster seemed to be giving her mother a torrid time as evidenced by the mother’s sunken face and the toddler’s intermittent tantrums. Naturally I was inclined to ask the mother what was the issue, she responded that her daughter was demanding she buy her everything they came across and was typically being a nuisance.

Being one from the old school of parenting I was quick to tell the toddler that if she continued her antics I was going to give her a taste of the belt treatment. The toddler stood there frozen in shock at…………… continues on AllAfrica.com

Shots heard round the parenting world: Dad guns down daughter’s laptop after …
News from Washington Post:

It’s classic parent-teenager strife, revamped for the Internet age: A 15-year-old takes to Facebook to curse her parents and complain about chores and the pressures of youth. Her disgusted father videotapes and posts a lengthy rebuttal punctuated by nine gunshots as he empties his pistol into her laptop.

The bizarre tech-xecution has garnered more than 26 million views on YouTube and tens of thousands more on Facebook, touching a nerve with others tired of their kids’ attitudes but also drawing backlash from parents who have kept such desires in check, people who believe the father is the one being childish.

“It represents a fantasy scenario for parents,” said Anthony Rotolo, a Syracuse University professor who specializes in social media. “Most parents would not respond in this manner … but many parents have certainly felt unappreciated and imagined taking similar action.”

The furor began when Tommy Jordan of Albemarle, N.C., aired his feelings in the video he posted last week. Sitting in an Adirondack chair on an expansive stretch of grass, Jordan is wearing jeans, a plaid shirt and a wide-brimmed hat, a lit cigarette between his fingers.

Then he launches into his diatribe, quoting from his daughter’s Facebook post, in which she told her parents “I’m not your damn slave,” ‘’I’m tired of picking up after you,” and “You know ho…………… continues on Washington Post

Nagley: Parenting together after divorce

Nagley: Parenting together after divorce
News from Midland Daily News:

The goal for parents is to raise a child who is happy and healthy. During divorce or separation, raising a child can become difficult. Your role as a partner in raising your child has changed to that of a co-parent. As you try to deal with the pain of ending a relationship, you are also trying to make sure your child is happy and well cared for. Did you know that the way a child deals with divorce or separation is affected by the amount of conflict their parents have? Below are some tips to help reduce the stress of co-parenting and to make sure that your child remains happy and healthy.

Focus on the child

Your child should be able to love both parents, no matter what has been done in the past. It is often hard to view the person that hurt you as being the same person that would never hurt your child. Remember, every child has one mother and one father. The relationship your child has with both their parents affects their future relationships. Sometimes you might try to keep your child away from the other parent by not allowing them to visit or saying hateful things about the other person. This can cause your child to dislike their other parent. As much as it may hurt you when your child sees the other parent, children who have a positive relationship with both parents have their needs met, are not in the…………… continues on Midland Daily News

News from My Beginning of Term Frustrations – AllAfrica.com:

On Monday my children resume school after about 6weeks of holiday. They have grown so much; even I who sees them on a daily find it hard to believe. The girl is chasing at me like her whole life depends on it and am not certain the shoe still fits in her ‘interestingly’ long foot.

She is a true Luo girl that one. Sometimes the speed she is growing threatens to scare me but am holding steady, after all I remember my aunts used to continuously exclaim at how quickly I was growing.

I will never forget that I used to wear the very same shoe size I wear now back in the day when I was in primary six at Nakasero primary school. So like the Baganda say, ‘Bugubugu si muliro!’ now I hope I spelt that right, not with all my Baganda relatives out there.

The young man has been looking forward to going to school and has continuously asked if he will be going to school tomorrow and then another tomorrow until it’s finally here. We have been busy the whole week preparing for the new term, the final one for this academic year.

We have been quickly going over the holiday work, have bought the scholastic requirements and made a hearty attempt to pay the school fees before the long queues…………… continues on My Beginning of Term Frustrations – AllAfrica.com

Co-Parenting Advice for Heidi Klum & Seal: Develop Right Mind-Set After Divoce

Co-Parenting Advice for Heidi Klum & Seal: Develop Right Mind-Set After Divoce
News from Examiner.com:

By Rosalind Sedacca, CCT

Heidi Klum and Seal, just like thousands of others on the verge of divorce, are facing many decisions and choices related to co-parenting ahead. Sharing parental responsibilities after divorce is usually of great value for the children. But it can also be enormously complex and challenging for parents. Here are six good reasons why:.

  •        Both parents are bringing the raw emotions resulting from the divorce into a new stage in their lives
  •        Heidi and Seal, or any Mom and Dad,  are also bringing previous baggage from the marriage – ongoing conflicts,  major disputes, differing styles of communication, unresolved issues and other frustrations —  into the mix as they negotiate a co-parenting plan
  •        Both parents are vying for the respect and love of the children – and are easily tempted to slant their parenting decisions in the direction that wins them popularity with the kids
  •        Anger and resentment resulting from the divorce settlement can impact and influence levels of cooperation in the years to come
  •        Parents may disagree about major issues ahead that weren’t part of the parenting dynamic in the past including: visits and sleepovers with friends, scheduling after-school activities as well as vacation-time, handling curfews and new behavior problems. W…………… continues on Examiner.com
