I was invited to participate in a morning talk show to talk about children's use of Internet and electronic devices.  I didn't think much of it and began preparing by reading a couple of current articles on the subject, without realizing how important this is to the modern parent.  

During the interview's break I...

Many people seek therapy because they are experiencing trouble resolving a particular situation. In most cases, people already know what the problem is and in fact they may already know what they need to do about it.  With this in mind, why do we abstain from resolving our problems if we know what we have to do?

Some years...

For some reason February the 14th is a day in which we willingly or unwillingly think and evaluate our relationship status.  Some people affirm that they couldn’t care less about Valentine’s Day; others have a firm belief that it is only a marketing strategy and others really get into it and make it a memorable event ever...

Without any doubt, Santa Claus is one of the most influential characters in the Western culture.  In fact, it has been a primary discipline tool used by parents after the month of September (“I’m going tell Santa Clause not to bring you gifts!”).  Although Santa is a Christmas icon and is widely known by everyone, it is a...

I believe that mothers are supernatural beings.  Somehow along their existence, they probably go through some form of genetic mutation that allows them to develop super senses and fortune telling abilities.  They can smell their teenagers weed from the driveway before they arrive home, predict their kid’s cold days before...

Have you ever been in the middle of a meeting or in front of a group of people and you feel a strong need to fart? The truth is that this happens way more than what we’d like to admit. Excuse me mister but farting is just flatus expelled through the anus caused by digestion and excess of air so what does this have to do w...

Relationships were so much simpler when we were kids.  We would go ask someone “do you wanna be my friend," he will give you the answer and that was it. It was that simple!  The problem is that level of sincerity and genuine communication get’s a little complex with social norms and expectations.  In our adult life, we wi...

There is not a right time to begin or end a relationship. For the most part, it is very nice to start a relationship before the holidays. The gatherings, gifts, traditions and all the holiday activities make it so simple to start off a relationship with the right foot. The problem begins when we are trying to end a relati...

Even before we are born, we are part of a set of rituals and beliefs passed on from one generation to another.The mothers have a baby shower and the father proudly passes out cigars in blue or pink colors.  In Armenia, a baby is placed on the floor surrounded by symbolic items to determine his future. In China, the baby's...

Choosing a partner is probably one of the most life changing and difficult decisions we will ever make.  We meet an infinite number of people in our lifetime, yet we choose that special person to share our life with.  We don't normally begin a relationship thinking, “Looks like he would be a perfect first husband”....
