My third failed attempt at breastfeeding, and it's OK

I've come to know the sound all too well -- the unmistakable suction of the breast pump. In fact, my breast pump and I have spent so much time together there are times I think it's talking to me, and sometimes not saying very nice things!

Bridging the gap: Can empathy be taught?

Every semester since 2006, Kevin Blair has taught an introductory course on poverty at Niagara University. And every semester, he finds a business student who is only enrolled in the class to fulfill a social science elective, or simply needed three more credits to graduate -- not because the student is interested in poverty.

I observed several moments that proved to me the world is inherently good, and I can be a part of it. Let me tell you about 6 brief experiences that inspired me.

One little girl learns the true meaning of delete

For little children, it is the small things in life that can completely destroy their day. When one little girl deletes a picture on the camera, tears quickly come. It can break our heart to see children cry over the smallest details but do we often find ourselves doing the same thing? Has your mood ever quickly changed because your favorite pair of pants are too tight and you're mad at yourself for putting on a few extra pounds?

An experiment proves one secret to a happy family

It is no secret that parenting is hard. No matter whether your children are young, teenagers or even adults, your children need and deserve a parent who cares.
