It may be time for us to stop complaining about how men are such commit-o-phobes and women are all gunning to get hitched and make babies. A new Match.com survey of more than 5,000 people, ages 21 to 65, of all races, sexual orientations, and socio-economic levels, found that more men are looking for attachment…

Dr. Phil Tells Mom To Not Let Son Play With Barbies

Dr. Phil doesn’t want your son to be “confused” — especially if “confused” means “gay.” Not that one of America’s most prominent psychological experts (thanks a lot, Oprah) comes right out and says being gay is bad.

The Daily Ovulation: I Hope My Daughter Speaks French And Has A Bob

Little kids are basically always adorable, but certain traits are bound to make any childless woman’s uterus do cartwheels. For example, a child retelling a classic story, like Winnie-The-Pooh, with wide-eyed enthusiasm. Or a little girl with a perfectly “Amelie”-esque bob haircut.

One Columnist Argues That Marriage Is Still Important … To Kids

In this week’s Boston Herald, op-ed columnist Jennifer C. Braceras suggests that while adults might think marriage is becoming unnecessary, kids definitely need the institution. She supports this idea with statistics from a recently published Pew Research Center study, conducted in coordination with Time magazine.

Surprising News: An Only Child May Be A Happier Child

While growing up — with one sister, a mother, and a father — I’d sometimes fantasize about being part of a massive family. This was, no doubt, because my favorite TV reruns – like “The Brady Bunch” and “8 Is Enough” – made it look like all fun and giggles to have scads of sibling…

Today’s Lady News: May The Force Be With You, Katie!

A first grader named Katie was made fun of by the boys at her school for owning a “Star Wars” water bottle.

What Strange Stuff Did You Do As A Kid?

Yesterday, Amelia and I were discussing a random post idea, and Frederick’s of Hollywood came up. At that moment I remembered how much I enjoyed reading that catalog when I was younger.

Should Mothers Blog About Their Kids?

In a new post, “The Older Child,” blogger Heather Armstrong, better known as Dooce, seems to suggest that her eldest daughter no longer wants her mother to blog about her, at least not without her permission. Which begs the question: Should so-called “mommy bloggers” be able to blog about their kids without their kids’ permission?
