Marriage ADHD

Marriage ADHD

Family Values: Marriages have always been complicated. It takes time and effort to develop trust and intimacy and the deep love that sustains a couple over many years and through the rough patches. It takes sacrifice and compromise and putting another person’s wants and needs ahead of your own. These are timeless truths. Yet it seems that the ways in which marriages develop - or fail to develop - have changed. What’s going on? Do we have “marriage attention deficit disorder”? Have our lives become so fragmented and our attention so distracted that we can no longer focus long enough to sustain a strong bond with a life partner? Read more…

Work & Family: Nathan and Allie Scherich of Sleepy Hollow have three children. Just like any other Westchester family they juggle soccer practice, homework, and work schedules every day. What’s slightly different for their 7-year-old twin boys, Oliver and Elliot, and their 1-year-old sister, Caroline, is that mommy and daddy’s work schedule is unlike other parents. Read more…

Sealed with a Kiss

Sealed with a Kiss

Activities: For me, Valentine’s Day has seen some changes over the years. Before kids, it was all about romance and quiet dinners, chocolate and roses (or, at the very least, a restaurant meal where no one cried about the “green stuffs” in their food). And it was lovely. But now, with two little girls in the mix, Valentine’s Day is a sweet, goopy, glitter glue-smeared lovefest. And it’s funny, but I actually think I appreciate it more in its current incarnation, because the focus is so squarely on love. Real love - messy, sticky, gooey love. Read more…

Have Faith

Education: For many families, a religious school makes a great education option, whether or not faith is a major part of their home life. In fact, a Catholic or Jewish education can be a fantastic way to expose your child to different ways of thinking about the world and interacting with their community. Read more…

How to Choose a Dance Studio

How to Choose a Dance Studio

Tweens: The number of dance studio options can easily make any parent feel overwhelmed. A good place to start is to consider your child’s unique interests before selecting a studio. This can help you narrow down the choices, as there’s no uniform “right” studio. Local studios offer a multitude of dance class choices including theater, modern, ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, ballroom, Bollywood, improv - you name it! Read more…

When to Begin Managing an Aging Parent’s Affairs

When to Begin Managing an Aging Parent’s Affairs

Legal: When is it the right time to begin managing an aging parent’s affairs? It is difficult for loved ones to know when to step-in and assist an aging parent with his financial and medical affairs. Conversations about money can be uncomfortable and parents may become suspicious or defensive when the topic is raised. They may resist doctor visits out of fear that their capacity is being evaluated. It is no wonder we resist having these conversations no matter how crucial they are. Unfortunately, as our loved ones age, they may lose the capacity to manage their financial and medical affairs and cognitive decline, coupled with isolation, can often make aging parents easy targets for elder abuse, specifically financial exploitation.
