We’re walking into 2012 and most Americans still taste recession. Perhaps they are dealing with:

Mom and Daughter Talk Sex

By: Dr. Gaby Cora

Years ago I shared with my friends how I decided to prescribe birth control pills to my daughter, who would have otherwise needed to wait three months to see a doctor. My friends were stunned. Although their sons and daughters were in their late teens and, their parents assumed, they were sexually active, none of my friends had had an honest conversation suggesting ways to protect the kids from both sexually-transmitted diseases or pregnancy.

As committed parents who want to raise well-grounded, smart, and self-sufficient individuals, we spend more time teaching them good manners, the benefits of great education, and the wonders of competitive sports. The big question is: why are parents not talking more about sex with their kids?

My daughter and I were discussing this recently. She thought this video would help many teens as much as our conversation helped her.

Privacy, What Privacy? The Era of Public is Here

By: Dr. Gaby Cora

My daughter started college at seventeen. During one of her assignments she was given an option: to either submit a series of papers versus participating in student research by completing surveys.

How come we would not allow our daughter to contribute to the sublime cause of furthering research? The answer was very simple: completing the assignments was part of her learning experience and a direct benefit to her. Participating in research had no learning experience and it only benefited them.

Do you work through strengths or through weaknesses?

Do you work through strengths or through weaknesses?

Years ago I was chatting with a more senior executive in Corporate America. I mentioned my love of medicine and its integration with business and my dislike of the more tedious financial reports. She immediately said I should focus on developing skills in the accounting and financial aspects of my work, leaving aside my forte as I shouldn’t focus on my strengths but on my weaknesses, she said.

Kids Stress

Do our kids stress more than we did when we were young?

Just as an example, if you feel swamped with the blessings and curses that instant technology brings to you, what about their situation? They have been born in the technology boom.

In addition, there are great disparities in the world of these children: those born into homes where they are well-taken care of and those who have experienced and lived atrocities that no adult or child should ever experience.
