A good night sleep and some exercise may not be the secret to happiness, but they certainly help. However, things are different for new Massachusetts parents trying to maintain a healthy marriage.
Raising Massachusetts kids is a messy, complicated and stressful undertaking. And it can put a lot of strain on a marriage even in the best of circumstances. When parents have conflicting ideas of how best to approach child-rearing and don't work to get on the same page, that strain increases and arguments ensue. Done regularly, this not only adds tension and resentment to a marriage but is also harmful for kids.
Whether you're fantasy-prone or a pragmatic realist, the temptation to romanticize the past (including your former flame) can be emotionally gratifying.
Sites like Facebook and Instagram are an easy way for new Massachusetts parents to share photos with friends and family.
A Massachusetts divorce can be a complex and lengthy process with a variety of emotional, practical, and financial implications for both spouses, and any children that may be impacted. During such a stressful time, it can be easy to overlook basic items like the family's insurance coverage. Nevertheless, it's important to review all insurance policies to determine how your coverage may change once the divorce is final and, more importantly, how you can prepare.
A Massachusetts divorce is not an everyday occurrence for most individuals. Because of this, most of our clients come to us seeking help in a divorce with certain ideas and preconceived notions as to what they expect their divorce to look like. Whether they get these ideas and notions from television, magazines, or even from friends and family members who have experienced their own Massachusetts divorce, there are certain myths which are quite common about the divorce process.
Recent research details factors that can lengthen your life, and those that can shorten it - everything from eating less, exercising more and being optimistic (longer life) to obesity, alcoholism and sleeping too much (shorter life).
Arguments are a natural part of a Massachusetts marriage. They are necessary to push one another, to settle disagreements, to make feelings known, and arrive at the best solutions. But, of course, not all argument tactics are created equal. When spats are recurring, explosive, frequent, or never move on to solving a real problem that exists couples need to recalibrate the way they talk and discuss their issues and, well, figure out how to fight "well."
If iPads, smartphones, and screens seem like drugs for Massachusetts kids, it's because they have a lot in common with uppers when it comes to a child's developing brain. Screen time, sugar, and reward all flood kids' brains with dopamine, the same feel-good chemical released when people do cocaine or see that someone liked their Instagram post.
Massachusetts babies don't lie. Massachusetts toddlers rarely lie. Little kids lie a lot. And it's all good. When a child begins lying, it's a pretty good sign that they are experiencing some healthy cognitive development. Lying tends to give way to honesty and solid communication skills over time when parents aggressively police behavior. Development and education on right and wrong (don't steal cookies) leads to a multi-faceted understanding of the complex concept of honesty.
