Celebrate Mother’s Day: Perfection Not Required

2020-05-07T14:40:07+00:00

[instagram-feed showcaption=false] Nina Newman, PhD  Doctoral faculty, Infant & Early Childhood Development MAy 7, 2020 As we look to Mother’s Day in this unprecedented time, it is an opportunity to reflect on what this pandemic is teaching us about mothering (parenting), the importance of relationships, and the true nature of development. As many families’ lives have been upended and their daily routines and support abruptly halted or diminished, the first impulse has been to grip onto ‘normal’ and try to re-create in another mode, most often through screen time.

Mary G Warren, PhD, IMH-E® Doctoral faculty, Infant & Early Childhood Development MAy 6, 2020 Our lives are steeped in culture. Hair care is part of how we learn about, are influenced by, and revise our own culture. Mothers are the first architects of how our hair reflects us. Growing up, who first took care of your hair? Probably this person was your Mother. She washed it, dried it, combed it, and when there was enough to tie up some way, you may have sprouted a palm tree out of the top of your head. Or, maybe your hair was cut [...]
