Raising a Happy Child

As parents, there is not much we wouldn’t do for our children. We go to great lengths to ensure that they have proper nutrition, warm clothes, a good education, exposure to extracurricular activities, and our undying love and support. Beneath all of that lies one simple truth—we just want our kids to be happy.

Preventing Cervical Cancer

As parents, we’ll do anything to protect our children. We child-proof our homes, invest in car seats and bike helmets, and teach our kids about stranger danger. We try to be as proactive as possible in preventing any harm. Another way we can take action? Take steps to prevent human papillomavirus, or HPV.

When Your Child is the Victim of Bullying

Kids keep quiet about bullying for many reasons. Sometimes they feel ashamed or embarrassed that they are being bullied. Because kids won’t always report bullying, it’s important to recognize the warning signs.

When Your Child is the Bully

None of us wants to learn that our child has been behaving badly. It can be shocking and embarrassing to learn that your child has been acting as a bully, but it’s imperative to address the behavior.

Back Off, You Big Bully

Bullying is an ongoing problem in schoolyards worldwide. Unfortunately, there will always be bullies—and these bullies typically grow up to be bullies in the workplace. We may not always be able to avoid bullies, but we can empower our kids to cope with the bullies they encounter.

The Big Bully Problem

Each day, we send our kids off to school with high hopes for their educational and social development. We expect our children to thrive in the school environment, but school is not always the safe, happy place we hope it will be. Instead, it can be a place where bullies lurk and threaten to undermine the very confidence and joy we hope to instill in our kids.
