    18 Dec 2014 | 5:13 am
    A new study has found that sensitive caregiving in the first three years of life predicts an individual's social competence and academic achievement, not only during childhood and adolescence, but into adulthood. The study used information from 243 individuals who were born into poverty, came from a range of racial/ethnic backgrounds, and had been followed from birth to age 32.

These vary in their realism and their ability to generate predictions. The variety of approaches, as well as different views about what constitutes an explanation, helps explain a divisive debate about the importance of kin selection in evolution. A new criterion of 'causal aptness' could help resolve disputes.

Research has shown that individuals have evolved to be overly influenced by their neighbors, rather than rely on their own instinct. As a result, groups become less responsive to changes in their natural environment.

    I have always been a people pleaser. My entire life. I want to make people happy and make them love me. This behavior, however, has led me to label myself as something else as well – a hurter. The two are connected because, in my eagerness to please, I do and become whatever my partner wants, whether or not that is in line with what I want. And for a while, it works. But at some point, giving everything to someone else and nothing to myself gets old and emotionally exhausting. However, by the time I realize I’ve made a mistake, I’ve already made the other person believe that I’m…

    You hear about this all the time in the mainstream and the media. There are plenty of books about it, plenty of theories, and lots of us who know it works and use it every day. What you put out to the world is what you’ll get back from it. If you walk around negative and dark, you’ll attract more negativity and darkness. When you give love, you’ll receive love from all sides. Even those of us who have employed this lifestyle for years can sometimes lose sight of its effectiveness and the ways it provides such a simple means to bring warmth and goodness into our daily lives.

We connected and have been together since. We have 3 kids and 16 1/2 years invested, 6 1/2 years married. Fast forward, I gained a lot of weight throughout the years (was always chubby) not just from having children but from overeating and not exercising. I reached 315 lbs when my husband proposed. He told me he loved me as I am and my weight didn't matter. Well after we married, I began to lose weight for my health of…

After digging out the trenches, filling them with gravel, etc. The septic workers left the soil (mostly desert sand, not really soil) piled on top of the new leach field. This pile of soil/sand is about 8 inches deep. They suggested that I just turn into a nice mound in the landscape and plant grass on it. So here's my question, will 4 to 8 inches of excess soil/sand on top of a leach field interfere with it's performance? They also…

    “Do nations who do not recognize same-sex marriage have an obligation to recognize same-sex marriage, when such marriages have been consummated abroad?” Yes, replies Samar, if the right to same-sex marriage could be framed as a substantive human right. He defends this proposition by building upon the arguments of Alan Gewirth, whose ethical rationalism posits a supreme “principle of generic consistency” that logically follows from the structure of human agency. The principle states that “everyone should have the same freedom as long as it does not interfere with…

    While the Christmas season is often an flood of consumerism and advertising, there is a time when the giving of gifts is a great way to demonstrate love. When this someone is your spouse, how can you accurately demonstrate your feelings in a gift? You likely can’t completely because love is an everyday action, not simply the giving of gifts, but there are times when a gift is appropriate, a reminder for each other, and/or a token of your life together. So how do you find something unique and one-of-a-kind? What if there were a gift that could only be given once – to only one…

And when you're single, that feeling of resentment pretty much intensifies. Whether it's worrying over those missed connections or kicking yourself because of the one that got away, we've all had that moment where we let past mistakes manifest in our heads. But instead of wasting time thinking about what you can't change, zone in on the present. read more

We all have needs for love and connection, but you will express them normally if you had a secure attachment and can trust others, or will be ambivalent between trusting and running away, so feeling always anxious about the strength of the connection, or the person will not give a dam, because a previous attachment has caused the loss of trust in human connections……

    Trust in marriage is probably the most important building block for a secure relationship between husband and wife The most wonderful part of a loving marriage is the ability to trust your mate—trust that he will be true to you emotionally; trust that she does what she says she will do; trust that your partner is the same person on the inside that he presents on the outside; trust that the other person has your best interest in mind. This secure context basically creates safety, security and a deeper capacity to love. It can heal past wounds of people with hurtful childhood attachments.

      When “benefits” of sex are listed, “stress reduction” is usually somewhere in the mix. It may be phrased a number of different ways, alluding to both physical and emotional side benefits.  No matter how we label it, the people who study this sort of thing often hold up “feeling less stressed” as a big plus of nurtured sexual intimacy in marriage. And certainly scientists and doctors could explain this reality physiologically. From a scientific standpoint, they would confirm that something good indeed does physically happen within a…

A marriage can make it without romance–many couples have proven this fact, just as you can live in a house without central air and heat. It may be do-able, but it certainly won’t be as enjoyable. When things get difficult in your life–trouble with work, children, schooling, relationships–it’s nice to know your spouse is there to let you vent about the struggle. It’s even better if your spouse plans something special, romantic even, to help you get your mind off the…

Is it another in a long line of crazy, busy, expensive holidays? Do you enjoy the holidays, or endure them? If you can say you fully enjoy this time of year, good for you! If not, how about doing something about it? I realise it’s too late to make many changes for this year, but it’s a great time to work on next year. While what you dislike about this year is fresh in your mind, sit down with your…
  • … and Let it Begin With Me

    The Generous Husband
    21 Dec 2014 | 12:01 am
    There’s a lot of talk this time of year about peace, but what are we actually doing about it? By “we” I don’t mean governments, religions, churches, or movements. I mean what is each of us doing about it. In 1955, the song Let There Be Peace On Earth become a huge sensation, sweeping the world. Tradition says the song was sung by a racially and religiously mixed group of almost 200 teenagers as part of a workshop in the California Mountains, and those teens took the song out to the world when they left. I think what makes the song so powerful is the simple idea of let…
  • The Gift of No More Porn

    The Generous Husband
    20 Dec 2014 | 12:01 am
    If you look at porn, be it a little or a lot, consider giving your wife the gift of you no longer using porn ever again. I realise it is not an easy gift to give. I realise it is a gift you have to keep giving for it to be worth anything to her. I know you are worried you could fail. And, you probably don’t want to give up porn. Even if you hate it, part of you enjoys it. You like how it makes you feel. You like the arousal and power porn provides.  Most attempts to give up porn are just that, attempts. From the start, there is the thought it will not work, or it will take a number of…
  • Friday Flashback: Does She Deserve Generosity?

    The Generous Husband
    19 Dec 2014 | 12:01 am
    The following is something Lori wrote for The Generous Wife: I had someone write me recently, telling me their husband did not “deserve” their generosity. While I understand the personal hurt behind such a thought (really I do), I would like to suggest generosity is not something that is given because it is deserved. It is given because of the nature of the giver, not the nature of the receiver. Generosity is an expression of the love in your heart directed toward others, regardless of how they will respond. There is not so much a tip in what I’ve written, but rather…
  • Christmas Letter for One

    The Generous Husband
    18 Dec 2014 | 12:01 am
    Done well, a love letter is one of the best gifts you can give your wife. You can get fancy with the presentation, but the words are what really matter. This is your heart on paper. This is you sharing your deepest feeling with the woman you love. She wants to hear your heart; she wants to know how you feel. In fact, it wouldn’t be going too far to say she needs to connect with you in this way. If you find it difficult to share these things speaking with her, a love letter is the perfect tool. Even if you are able to speak the words, putting them on paper will touch her. The goal here…

    Yesterday we strolled around Opryland Hotel to look at lights and check out the Santa. Otis decided he didn’t want to sit on Santa’s lap this time (I think Mrs. Claus scared him) so we sat off to the side and just watched as Santa did his thing. As we watched kids sit on Santa’s lap and parents sneak pictures with their iPhones, I noticed a couple close to us. They had tried to get their son to sit on Santa’s lap, but he wasn’t having it. I’m not going to lie, I noticed them when I heard the wife basically spit out her husband’s name while trying to…
  • Don’t Let Expectations Kill the Holidays

    1 Dec 2014 | 12:21 am
    My grandmother moved from the Philippines to live with us in Tennessee when I was in 2nd grade. My best friend at the time was a Korean girl and her grandmother had moved to the states to live with their family the year before. She was so excited for me because, according to her, grandmothers from Asian parts of the world come bearing all kinds of Hello Kitty amazingness. So I was basically at the airport waiting on my grandma like this: Well, my grandmother didn’t have any gifts other than her awesomeness. Which was great except I was 7 and I really wanted some Hello Kitty stuff. My…

    Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday of all time. And I should probably write a post about how you should be thankful in your marriage or ask you to tell me why you’re thankful for your sweetie… but I’m not. Because it’s kind of expected and maybe a little boring? Instead I’m gonna tell you how the sweater below started a fight: (I can’t tell you how awkward taking this selfie was. I am not a selfie taker, and usually make fun of people over 30 that take selfies, yet here I am. Sigh.) I bought this sweater last year at Target. It was cheap and I…

  • The Gift of Hope: A Message of Possibility for Marriages

    E.J. Smith
    22 Dec 2014 | 6:39 am
    Dear Reader, Last night I found myself strolling the familiar aisles of my local Barnes & Noble.The Christmas season is my absolute favorite time to peruse the shelves, as so many of the items on display offer beautiful snow-scape covers, and themes of warmth, of miracles and of togetherness. I was thinking— half meditation and half prayer— of what I would say to all of you this month.  I recalled my article from last December which, as per usual with this column, dealt with some pretty hefty doses of reality.  This year, I would like to do something different. This year, I want to…
  • Does Sex Increase or Decrease Your Stress?

    Julie Sibert
    16 Dec 2014 | 2:12 pm
      When “benefits” of sex are listed, “stress reduction” is usually somewhere in the mix. It may be phrased a number of different ways, alluding to both physical and emotional side benefits.  No matter how we label it, the people who study this sort of thing often hold up “feeling less stressed” as a big plus of nurtured sexual intimacy in marriage. And certainly scientists and doctors could explain this reality physiologically. From a scientific standpoint, they would confirm that something good indeed does physically happen within a…
  • How’s the (Romantic) Temperature In Your Home?

    Debi Walter
    8 Dec 2014 | 4:00 am
    If marriage is like a house, then romance is the central air and heat. Think about it. A marriage can make it without romance–many couples have proven this fact, just as you can live in a house without central air and heat. It may be do-able, but it certainly won’t be as enjoyable. When things get difficult in your life–trouble with work, children, schooling, relationships–it’s nice to know your spouse is there to let you vent about the struggle. It’s even better if your spouse plans something special, romantic even, to help you get your mind off the…

    You’ve been watching those shows about how to buy and makeover a house, and visions of your very own HGTV style home are now dancing in your head. You’ve pinned hundreds of images of cheery kitchens, welcoming living rooms, and restful bedrooms on Pinterest. Furniture and home decor catalogs litter your apartment, and you can’t wait to be on a first name basis with the folks at Target, Ikea, and Pottery Barn. While this may lead to impromptu happy dances in the store aisles, it will most likely lead you down a path to more debt and deep regret. There is a way to furnish your…

    I’m always amused by where and how I find inspiration. Does the same happen to you? I was all prepared this month to write what I hoped would be a brilliant, insightful look at how to survive the upcoming holiday season. But as I did my research, mediated, prayed and pondered on the topic—everything seemed to fall short of what I was looking for. Then in a true twist of happenstance (if you believe that sort of thing), I came across a book on my shelf that I’d forgotten I had bought about marriages and relationships. Flipping it through, I stumbled across this quote, “Looking for the…

    You have to begin changing yourself first! So many times people ask how they can change their passive aggressive partner….and my only response is: You can’t! I know, it is discouraging….I would love to have another answer, but my only one (you can only change yourself) is still the right one. Begin changing yourself first! Do you want to know more?

    Nora Femenia
    17 Oct 2014 | 8:15 am
    resilient survivor woman CAN YOU SEE THE ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP AS A LIFE LESSON IN RESILIENCE? There is much more information about how to identify emotional abuse, than  about the process of breaking free and healing from it. The preferred solution for the victim seems to be to leave both, the abusive partner and the abusive situation. For the abuser himself, if he is not done with this behavior, now he has the job of finding another person submissive enough as to occupy the role of new victim. Thinking about this lack of information and resources, and asking the question several times:…

      How from frustrated emotional needs we produce conflicts For us to lead successful and happy lives, we all have basic needs that have to be fulfilled by our loved ones around us. And we are motivated to do the same for them. We all have human needs that reach out for satisfaction, but few of us are educated in how to take ownership of them and search for solutions. Perhaps we tend to feel we are victims of others’ selfishness. If so, we need first to search for what grounds us into our own individuality. Our entire happiness depends first on knowing what we need, and then on getting…

    Shame and Humiliation: my story of domestic violence. After a public discussion about  NFL player Ray Rice hitting his then fiancée unconscious inside an elevator, the floodgates were open in Twitter for women to share their own stories. Under the hashtags of #WhyIStayed, and #WhyILeft, women are telling their own experiences of domestic violence. They swirl around the basic question: Why is she staying with him? Why is she not leaving? and the answers tinted by personal stories, ethnicity, age and cultural differences,  flow endlessly into the same river of pain and redemption. First,…

    I’ll admit it, I’m really a giant child at heart!I delight in enjoying childish things with an alarming amount of exuberance. On Friday night, I stepped out my door to be assaulted by huge snowflakes falling. My response to this? To begin dancing in the middle of the sidewalk with my head tilted up, mouth open to catch as many as I could.So when I was asked to go to ‘Disney on Ice’ as an option for a date, I jumped at the chance, when many would have taken that opportunity to create a human-shaped hole through the nearest door.

    Getting your daughter to shave her legs is not an automatic task to think of when going over your mental list of things to do to get her ready for high school.  Many girls may have shaved their legs long before this point, but I’m one of those mom’s who has a daughter that could care less about her hairy legs so I had to take it upon myself to let her know it was time.  Either way, at some point in their lives, every girl must shave her legs for the first time.Shaving is something I do as a mindless act in the shower, so in gearing up for my tutorial I started thinking more…

It’ll probably be familiar to you. They post pictures of Marilyn Monroe all over their social networks, usually accompanied by some kick-ass declaration apocryphally attributed to the woman herself. The internet is awash with…

    I’m not getting laid enough. It’s a real problem (if you don’t compare it to Ebola), and there’s no obvious solution. Especially now that I’ve decided one-night-stands are for losers, and stopped shagging my ex-boyfriend and all his mates due to spurious moral reasons such as the fact they’ve all got married and impregnated their wives. I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but not having sex has serious physical and emotional side effects, such as frustration, insomnia and – as I was once reliably informed, by an obese Russian facialist – adult acne. You know when you see…

    What you think is happiness, may be an illusion! Hidden deep inside your psyche, are answers to the questions you never thought of asking! What REALLY makes you happy? – Tough to answer eh? Happiness is a highly personal thing. The dictionary defines happiness as “A state of well being and contentment” but can it truly be defined? For some, it’s fuelled by things like Success – Social standing or Material gain – While others find the joy of Friendship – Health – Family or Love interests, gets their hearts leaping with joy. Most of us slip on a happiness mask in public. We…
  • Marianne’s Story: Learning About My Employees Through QP3 Saved My Business

    Tokii
    24 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    Marianne recently took over ownership of a small, vegan restaurant in the center of a mid-sized, coastal, university host city. Typical wait and kitchen staff includes bohemian, university-aged students in their young twenties. Since the restaurant opened a few years prior, turnover was low for the staff population. Students often continued working at the fresh, upbeat restaurant a year or more – typically only moving on to graduate or relocate. While “clean eating” and vegan lifestyles were popular in the local area, at the time Marianne acquired ownership, the business was struggling…

    …but a state of mind. Calvin Coolidge. And with that, welcome Christmas Season 2014. While sitting down to write this post I tried, and bartered with myself, to remember some of my earlier Christmas memories. By ‘tried’ I mean that I really did think back to all of the Christmases I could call up memories for over the past 40+ years and by ‘barter’ I mean that I offered to do dishes for myself tonight. That was the easier part since I’m home alone for a few hours and still haven’t taught the cat to use the dish detergent without making a mess. There’s always next year. A,…

    Ever have the same songs on repeat, only to realize, weeks later – that you have never really listened to the words? I have to admit to both a serious case of not listening and an even more serious case of not being able to write – which comes, in part, from that serious case of not listening. A few weeks ago I promised A, The Wonder-Kid, that she could decide what we did for Thanksgiving (and Christmas, and New Year’s and Arbor Day, but not Groundhog Day, no, never Groundhog Day). It wasn’t until this past Monday that she decided we’d stay home and cook a giant feast, fit for forty…

    Or, at least the end of romantic comedies. Tom Hardy is one of my favorite actors. I can’t say it’s because I have loved all of his movies, although his Bane character in “The Dark Knight Rises” made me fall in love with the Batman franchise all over again and his new role in “The Drop” is on my must-see films of the fall season. Now that I think of it, I have seen a lot of Tom Hardy movies and give high “Hardy Ups” to “Black Hawk Down” (even though I didn’t love the movie, overall) and Layer Cake (again, the movie was okay, but Tom, oh, Tom) and “Tinker Tailor Soldier…

    I took my first flight when I was three years old. I was too young to have any real memories of that flight, but I do have pictures of my mom and I standing outside of the airport in San Diego, waiting to go inside where I would be passed off from my mom to a flight attendant, stewardess way back then in 1975, for the flight to Hobby Airport in Houston, TX. I must have flown twenty more times by myself before long distance driving became my family’s preferred mode of travel. I always thought it was because my mom liked road trips, but after reading “The Skies Belong to Us” by Brendan I.

    Professional sports leagues have a new player draft to give teams an opportunity to refresh their roster, and bring new skills, abilities and opportunities to their team and prospective players. When teams and their draft choices are a great fit championships are built. When they are not, writers and fans relish the opportunity to vent in articles like, “10 worst No. 1 picks in NFL draft history.” Careful research, interviews and thoughtful analysis are essential.

Without a doubt we influence one another, but far too often we justify bad attitudes and hurtful responses because of the attitudes and decisions of others. This week when tempers flare during your holiday gatherings here are three strategies to drop the drama: 1.

    As much as the holiday season is full of fun and food, it invariably also involves people dynamics. This is great when we want to look like a picture perfect Hallmark greeting card of a family, but we all know this is simply not true. Below the surface of the grins, laughter and greetings of, “Look how you’ve grown!” there is often an undercurrent of stress, anxiety and misunderstanding. This is not to say we don’t love one another- we do. But whenever a group of people come together who are tightly bonded, conflict tends to surface because we are in a pressure cooker of a social…

We do this to develop relationships and strong bonds with people. But we don’t always receive this engaging response to our bid for others to turn toward us.

    Christmas of 2002 was rough for me. I was in law school, and unlike many other students, I had taken out the absolute minimum amount of loans to avoid years of indebtedness after graduation. I was eventually grateful for that, but in the middle of my second semester, I was literally pulling together change to pay for groceries. The week of exams, I was exhausted from studying and depressed from all the time I was spending alone studying. In the back of my mind was the nagging reality that I had just enough money to pay for gas to drive home, but there was nothing I could do about that.

    by Amber Vandermaarl Allow me to set the scene: Twenty-two-year-old female, college grad, employed full time and never been kissed. According to 21st-century society, I'm either a nun, or I must look like Princess Diaries' Mia Thermopolis (pre-makeover). The former is not the case, and I like to think the second isn't either. "Contentment," an overused and widely defined term, can be a struggle at times. I say at times because it's easy to forget about being single when enjoying the good things in life (e.g., vacations, fellowship with friends, busy seasons at work).

    “Do you know anything about something called a Zion Baptist Church?” one of my college roommates asked. I smiled, as I was pretty sure I knew this was going to lead to a good story. “The assignment is to go to a service of a different religion than our own,” he explained. He’d just come back from class and was going over the details of the homework assignment.

Yes, they are separate, but I’m sure there are situations where both are at play—so if the woman were not having an MLC she would still be walking away. Consider the differences.

Therefore, it’s important that if you really think your spouse is cheating to know how to figure it out without driving yourself crazy.

    When things go south in a marriage, usually one of the spouses in the relationship will bring up the idea of couples counseling (typically the wife).

For the good part of the afternoon, I was preparing for our 10-year wedding anniversary. Reservations were made at The Inn Of The Seventh Ray (considered to be one of the most romantic restaurants in the Los Angeles area); I sent her a vase full of roses straight to her office, I wrote a short one-line love note, strategically placing it under her pillow (which she found later that night before she went to bed).
