I would imagine that disciplining children and setting boundaries in a world where they can hop on the internet and social media from anywhere is a difficult feat for parents in 2014. Kevin Jones, father of 10 year old Janiya, learned just how difficult parenting in 2014 can be when he discovered that his daughter was lying about her age and passing herself off as a teenager.

He took pictures of his daughter looking like the 10 year old she is and posted them on Facebook.
If you’re a wife and mother there is probably nothing more important to you than your family…not even yourself. But when health and wellness come into play there’s no one who can spark a change better than the queen of the household.

Plenty of women have more “big bros” than girlfriends and it’s not by choice. History has shown that women tend to have a hard time having healthy relationships with each other. Jealousy, envy and flat out cattiness will make anyone run the other way. But some of us have had enough of talking to guys who really can’t relate or having no one to talk to at all. There’s something special about having that girlfriend you can trust with your innermost sacred feelings and thoughts. After the loss of both of her parents in the last year and feeling empty and a bit lonely, Trina decided she wanted to try the girlfriend thing again but not with just any women.

If you ended up a fly on the wall in a men’s locker room you may hear some pretty disrespectful stuff. Well I’m not a fly and I haven’t actually hung out in a men’s locker room but I polled a few guys about whether or not they would respect a woman who they slept with on the 1st date.
