Parenting to Improve a Relationship

by Lori Sciame October 19th, 2018 | Relationships
Parents have a tough job. Raising a young child can be emotionally and physically tiring to say the least, but once a child hits the teen years, the task of being a parent becomes even harder.  However, in order to parent successfully, one must admit that the job of being a teen is also difficult.  At this age, a child must go through a seemingly endless stream of developmental stages. That's not easy to do.  How, then, does a parent do the best job he or she can at this tumultuous time?

Relationships and Retirement

by Lori Sciame September 7th, 2018 | Relationships
A few months ago, I wrote an article concerning my husband's retirement.  I wondered how this major life change would affect our relationship. At the time, I felt unsure as to what aspects would change, but I instinctively knew that change was inevitable. In  this update, I can report that we have survived the first two months; however, even with our easy going personalities, the process has been a bit bumpy.

by Lori Sciame July 27th, 2018 | Health Observance, Relationships
Most readers understand the overwhelmingly good feelings that correspond with finding a a special someone to love.  Even if one has been in a relationship for quite a while, he or she will surely remember the first few months after meeting his or her soul mate. Remember how falling for someone changes everything? Although seemingly cliche, it's a fact that while falling love, colors seem brighter, life seems easier, and food tastes better (or one doesn't need food at all).

New Partner, New Foods

Before I met my husband, my life didn't revolve around Italian food; however, after marrying into an

Retirement Changes Relationships

by Lori Sciame July 13th, 2018 | Relationships
A man walks out his office door for the last time after 33 years of employment.  Even though he's excited about not having to wake up each day at 5:30 am, and he professes he won't miss being on call 24/7, he still feels wistful that he has reached the end of his career as a police captain. "Everything changes," he thinks to himself as he places the last box of memorabilia in his trunk. Then he drives off into the scary world of retirement.

This scenario, or one similar to it, affects thousands of men and women in the
