When Breastfeeding is the Enemy: The Story of a Tongue Tie

In his first few hours of life, my newborn was casually diagnosed with a tongue tie. This little tidbit of information was sandwiched between a glowing approval of his perfect head shape and a hearty thumbs up to his lung capacity. If the doctors didn’t bat an eye, I didn’t think I needed to be […]

We call it that “childlike innocence.” However, when does it cross the line from honest observation into meanness?   Most of the things we hear children “observe” is because they are learning that others look different from themselves or from their own […]
