This is an excellent article on a difficult topic. Your child WILL eventually see porn on the internet and this advice will help you know what to do when it happens.

I am often hesitant to share these kinds of articles that appear to place blame on mom but I'm sharing this one with the caveat that anxiety is born AND made, meaning that sometimes circumstances make us anxious and sometimes it's genetic. We parents can be part of the circumstances and our anxiety can be catching. But there's good news! We can learn to be less anxious! And we can support our kids to be less anxious! And we can all learn to take good care of ourselves and each other! That's the message here -- anxious parents can get better and so can our kids.

The answer to the question is yes, fathers CAN have postpartum depression. It's time we started talking about and giving dads permission to get help.

Looking for post-traumatic growth doesn't mean denying the very real pain and loss of surviving trauma but it does center the work on your strengths and your power even as you work to heal.

Being a parent means feeling guilty; I don't know any parent who doesn't. Yes, it's possible to pass anxiety off to your children (through our genes, through our behaviors) but no one does it on purpose. All we can do is work to give our kids the tools they need (and that starts by making sure we have the tools we need) to learn to manage the inevitable struggles of being a living, breathing human being.

Here's a pro-therapy argument for those folks who worry that getting counseling (all that self-centered self-examination!) is selfish.

When clients want to talk about dreams with me and want to know what they mean, I ask them how they felt in the dream? And does that feeling remind them of a feeling they have in their real life? Because I can't tell you what your dreams mean but I can listen as you decide that for yourself.

“The sound of an infant’s cry arouses a far quicker and stronger response in action-oriented parts of the adult brain than do similarly loud or emotionally laden noises, like a dog barking or a neighbor weeping.”
