Keep Momming

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Shire. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.

As an actress, a public health advocate and former journalist, Holly Robinson Peete has seen it all. And as a mother of four, she’s encountered just about every parenting challenge you can imagine. One of her biggest challenges as mom is building and maintaining a close relationship with her teenage daughter, Ryan.

The mother-daughter relationship is a unique one, and that dynamic can be even trickier during the tween years. Yet sometimes, people dismiss certain behaviors as “typical tween girl behavior” when those behaviors can be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.

I’m proud to be joining forces with Shire, CHADD and Holly Robinson Peete to announce the launch of keep momming, a new public service initiative geared towards the moms of tween girls to raise awareness of ADHD.

Keeping my child safe on the internet is one of my biggest parenting concerns.  I know I can’t keep her locked away in a secluded tower (a la Rapunzel), but I do wish it would be harder for trouble to find her.

What kind of trouble? you ask.

I’m concerned about so many things: [click to continue…]

Hilarious New Video from Hello Flo!

by Paula on June 18, 2014

One of the challenging parts of having a tween daughter is having a continuing conversation about menstruation.  Before she gets her period, you’re talking about a future event.  After she starts, you’re sharing maintenance details.  And throughout, you’re worried about how she’s going to deal with the whole “being a woman” part.  I find myself repeating that old punchline:  If having a period were easy, a man could do it!

When I saw the break-out Hello Flo commercial last summer, I almost busted a gut laughing.  (I posted about it here if you want to see it again.)

And the brilliant minds at Hello Flo just came out with another winner!!  It’s definitely period humor, so may not be appropriate for all audiences, but it sure is hysterical.  I have watched it multiple times and roared louder each time!
