Studies prove millennial parents discipline their kids less

Casey Suglia - Romper, 13 March 2017.
13-03-2017
Between the criticism from other generations, the steady stream of new studies, and all the conflicting expectations parents have to live up to, modern parenting has never been more complex and or harder to navigate. Despite what some might think, however, millennial parents are, for the most part, like any other generation of parents with the exception of a few things, like the way they discipline.
 

How I help my children navigate their incredible life journeys

Lucy Kellaway - Finantial Times, 12 March 2017.
13-03-2017
From her British point of view, what the autor wants for her sons and daughters alike is for them to be decent human beings, economically independent, and happy-ish. She thinks of her own mother who was not there for her digitally, but did teach her how to knit and how to write, both of which have proved jolly useful.
 

Balancing career with family duties

Elizabeth Cipolla - The Post-Journal, 12 March 2017.
13-03-2017
Everywhere you look, there are articles and books being written about the generational workplace shakeup that has been taking place in recent years due to the introduction of Millenials and Generation Z into the workforce amidst Baby Boomers and Generation X. However, there is another generation of workers who are fighting different battles and they aren’t being talked about – the Sandwich Generation.
 

Balancing parenting and work stress: a guide

Daisy Wademan Dowling - Harvard Business Review, 9 March 2017.
10-03-2017
Most working parents look to their networks of mentors, coworkers, and professional contacts for advice on balancing the competing demands of work and home. But the off-the-cuff guidance that most new working parents in the U.S. get, even if it’s candid and well-intentioned, isn’t always helpful. Too often it’s contradictory, vague, out of date, unactionable, even downright disheartening.
 

The happiest married women “never bought into” a “dangerous fantasy”

Shana Lebowitz - Business Insider, 8 March 2017.
10-03-2017
According to a researcher who interviewed hundreds of married women, the No. 1 thing women who were satisfied with their marriages had in common was accepting that total happiness is hard to come by.
 

How to plan a family reunion

10-03-2017
They are supposed to be memorable and a chance to reconnect with your loved ones, but family reunions need careful planning to pull off successfully. There are a lot of little pieces involved in making sure that this important occasion goes smoothly. Here, some advice for having a family reunion you’ll remember for all the right reasons.
 

Two-child policy needs multiple support

Stuart Gietel-Basten- China Daily, 9 March 2017.
10-03-2017
In China, the government is considering giving “birth rewards and subsidies” to parents to encourage them to have a second child. This revolution in family planning policy –from restricting to encouraging childbearing– is remarkable in terms of both its speed and scope. It also shows how concerned the government is about the state of the country’s demography.
 

You are more than ‘just’ a stay-at-home mum

Nama Winston - The Huffington Post, 8 March 2017.
10-03-2017
Society apparently values family above everything else, but massively betrays women who are usually married and don't work outside of their maternal role. While dedicating their lives to something society approves of, they are somehow still not good enough.
 

Millions of children still out of school

HUman Rights Watch, 6 March 2017.
06-03-2017
As part of the SDGs, governments have committed to improve access and quality of education for all children by 2030. That’s a steep order: About 263 million children are out of school worldwide. Millions have never gone to school, and many others have been forced to leave. Currently, 25 million children around the world are expected to never attend school.

Quentin Fottrell - Market Watch, 5 March 2017.
06-03-2017
More than one in four deaths of the world’s children under the age of 5 are attributable to unhealthy environments, two new reports by the Geneva-based World Health Organization found. Every year, environmental risks — such as air pollution, secondhand smoke, tainted water, lack of sanitation and inadequate hygiene — take the lives of 1.7 million children during their first five years.
