Moms: The Secret to Dating Your Daughter

Dating your daughter mother-daughter quality time

As a mother of three girls, I know firsthand the joys and challenges of learning to parent three little people who each have three very different personalities and three varying perspectives on the world around them.

With the rise in daddy/daughter dances and mommy/son soirees, it may be difficult to fathom the idea of mommies dating their daughters. However, as you rear…

Does this after-school scene sound familiar? Everyone comes in the door and you immediately hear, “mom, can I have a snack”. You agree. The snack suggestions start.

Doctor's office dentist fear

This post is a collaboration and contributed by Sandra Jones. We all love our kids and do everything to keep them healthy and happy. However, kids don’t think of this as a favor when you’re hauling them along to a doctor’s office. As children, it’s very likely you were also afraid of having to go to the doctor or dentist. Hospitals usually mean nothing good’s going on, and as a child, you don’t have the ability to differentiate from that. Following…

3 Easy Ways to Make Business Connections as an Entrepreneur

Entrepreneur Business Conncections

A conversation I had the other day with an entrepreneur reminded me of the importance to surround yourself with like-minded people. Actually, scratch that, surround yourself with the kind of people that inspire you to be and do better. The fact that you’re the average of the 5 people you hang around the most should say something about the company we keep and connections we won’t make. It literally was a breath of fresh air to engage with enthusiasm and…

journey of success

On August 29, married couple Codie Elaine Oliver and Tommy Oliver debut their docu-series on OWN about love and relationships titled, Black Love.

This isn’t about rejoicing over other people’s test and trials, but attempting to answer the question…
