There you can find my articles published in magazines and news outlets, such as the&nbsp;trend of&nbsp;<a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.fitpregnancy.com/motherhood/fatherhood/daddys-home" title="stay-at-home dads," target="_blank">stay-at-home dads</a>,<a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.divinecaroline.com/22115/106392-keeping-children-safe-top-tips" title="parenting strategies" target="_blank">parenting strategies</a>, or amazing cancer survivors (<a rel="nofollow" href="http://navigatingvita.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/cancerfeature_pulse.pdf">CancerFeature_Pulse</a>). You'll also find my many blogs exploring the important issues of our lives. As a single mom of two kiddos, you're sure to find articles that delve into strategies to keep me sane (if possible!) as I strive to raise them in Southern California.</p> <p>Whether I'm writing about parenting, or relationships or healthy living&mdash;I&rsquo;m focussed on reporting, not just expert advice and research, but about our underlying motivations. What keeps us going? What helps us stay healthy, sane, compassionate? How can we better understand complex behavior, addiction, mental disorders&mdash;or even the common two-year-old temper tantrum?</p> <p>Let me know what you think and join the dialogue!<br /> &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
