Maria Menounos Shares Wedding Photo & Honors Her Parents in Emotional Post: ‘I Feel So Blessed’

Maria Menounos is feeling major gratitude toward her parents following her glamorous wedding in Akovos, Greece.

The TV personality, who remarried Keven Undergaro on Saturday after initially saying “I do” in an impromptu New Year’s Eve ceremony last year, paid tribute to her parents Constantine and Litsa on Instagram.

On Tuesday, Menounos, 40, posted a sentimental black-and-white snapshot with her dad at the wedding. In the picture, the father-daughter duo have their arms wrapped around one another as Menounos shows off her billowing Celia Kritharioti gown.

“Love my dad so much,” she captioned the post. “This was a dream for him. He was born and raised in Akovos. Though he’s the proudest American you will find, he is also equally proud of his roots.”

“Growing up we saved all the spare change we found on the nightclub floors we cleaned in Boston to save up and visit Greece,” Menounos continued. “It meant so much to him for us to be connected to our heritage, to know the language and the traditions. Both my parents wanted that. It took years but finally we visited in 1988 when I was 10. I loved it. We spent almost a month in Akovos and it always held a special place in my heart. Returning to get married there was my wildest dream come true. All of our friends and family helped make it truly the most special moment of all our lives.”

Menounos also revealed that her father had health problems right before the wedding: “My poor dad got so sick a week before the wedding and we almost lost him. Luckily my friends and family helped him get better all while keeping me in the dark. This is why I feel so blessed.”

With her wedding hashtag #mariaandkevensbigfatgreekwedding, she concluded, “To have my parents at my wedding I know wasn’t easy between dad’s diabetes and mom’s cancer. I know many who weren’t as lucky and I will never take that for granted.”

Menounos has shared all the details of her gorgeous nuptials on Instagram, which included a multi-layer cake, cheerful lemon centerpieces, yellow plants, yellow-hued drinks and pastries and almost 1,500 decorative lemons.

She also gave her fans peeks at her impressive arrival at the church — she rode in on a carriage surrounded by a swarm of people — and the celebration that followed the vows.

Before the wedding, she took a moment to reflect.

“I’ve been planning this for maybe a month but really been planning this for a long time in my heart because I always wanted to return to Greece and do our wedding here,” she said on Instagram. “Greece means so much to us and our village and our roots and I’m so beyond thankful to all of our friends who put this together.”

Transgender TLC Star Reveals Her Parents Put Her in Conversion Therapy: ‘A Childhood Nightmare’

“When I was probably in the fifth grade, I didn’t like being a Boy Scout. I wanted to be a Girl Scout. My mom said, ‘You can’t be in the Girl Scouts. That’s for girls, you’re a boy.’ And that’s when I told my mom that I wanted to be a girl,” she says. “I don’t think she really took me seriously at first, but some months later her and my father both realized that something was wrong or different about me. And unfortunately they went to the Church and asked for guidance, and the Church recommended conversation therapy.”

“And then a childhood nightmare began for me, for about a year,” she tells the camera in an interview.

Lyle Menendez Describes Reunion with Brother Erik Years After They Murdered Parents: ‘Remarkable Moment’

The last time Erik and Lyle Menendez saw each other in person was on September 10, 1996, when the two brothers were found guilty of first-degree murder in the 1989 shooting deaths of their parents, Jose and Kitty Menendez.

For more than two decades, Lyle was housed at Mule Creek State Prison in Ione, California — a small town outside Sacramento. Erik was incarcerated at Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego, more than 500 miles away.

But last month, the brothers reunited.

Lyle Menendez, now 50, gave an interview to DailyMailTV. Audio clips have been released to Good Morning America.

“It was just a remarkable moment,” Menendez said. “It was just something I wasn’t sure was ever going to happen,”

Lyle revealed that how he embraced Erik, now 47. He whispered “finally,” and the brothers burst into tears.

The men now live in a unit where inmates agree to participate in educational and other rehabilitation programs. If any prisoners fight or cause disruptions, they are moved out of the unit.

Despite their lengthy separation, the brothers have remained close. In a rare jailhouse interview last year, Lyle told PEOPLE they kept in touch through the years.

“We write each other regularly,” he said. “We even play chess through the mail, but it’s a little slow.”

The brothers have also been active while behind bars since shooting their parents with shotguns in 1989: Erik spent time with terminally ill prisoners and Lyle has been president of the inmate government and ran a support group for prisoners who endured childhood sexual abuse.

“We just keep trying to find something positive from the experiences that we had,” Lyle told PEOPLE.

Decades after their high-profile crimes, the Menendez brothers remain notorious among other inmates.

On Aug. 20, 1989, Erik and Lyle fatally shot their wealthy parents in the den of their home. Dad Jose Menendez, a 45-year-old Hollywood executive, was shot point-blank in the back of the head. Mom Kitty Menendez, 47, was shot 15 times, including once in the face.

At the time, Lyle was 21 and Erik was 18.

Prosecutors said the motive was the family’s $ 14 million estate. The brothers, however, initially blamed the killings on the mob but later claimed they shot their parents in self-defense after years of sexual abuse.

Jurors disagreed and convicted Erik and Lyle of first-degree murder, sentencing both to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Years after the shotgun slayings, do the brothers feel remorse for the violent crimes that resulted in their permanent incarceration?

“I would give my life to change it,” Erik told PEOPLE from prison in 2005. “I talk to my mom. She knows my heart. I ask for forgiveness.”

House of Horrors Parents: What We Know About David and Louise Turpin, Accused in Abuse of 13 Children

Many people who crossed paths with David and Louise Turpin believed the couple was strange. But nobody could have predicted they were capable of the evil acts they are accused of carrying out against their 13 children.

“Never in a million years did I think were being chained to beds,” a neighbor told PEOPLE within days of the Turpins’ Jan. 15 arrests as the case quickly gained infamy. “I thought maybe they weren’t being properly taken care of but I never had anything to go off of; it was just a mom’s stomach feeling that something wasn’t right there.”

David, 56, and Louise Turpin, 49, were arrested after their 17-year-old daughter climbed out a window of their Perris, California, home and used a disconnected cell phone to call 911, alleging that she and her 12 siblings were being abused and held captive by their parents.

Each parent is being held in lieu of a $ 12 million bond and face numerous criminal charges in the alleged abuse of their kids, who ranged in age from 2 to 29 at the time of the parents’ arrest. The charges include torture, false imprisonment and abuse. Only the youngest child appears to have been somewhat spared from the alleged abuse, according to prosecutors.

Authorities entered their house to find an allegedly horrendous scene of malnutrition and squalor, with some of the children shackled to their beds. Prosecutors allege the Turpins denied their children food — while eating healthy amounts themselves — and only allowed them to take one shower a year. Most of the siblings were unfamiliar with how to use a toothbrush.

Both parents are scheduled to return to court for a hearing on May 4, when the parties could possibly agree on a date for the preliminary hearing for the impending trial.

As the case proceeds through the judicial system, here are four things to know about the couple.

The Turpins

1. When They Got Married, David Was 23 and Louise Was 16

The Turpins were married in Pearisburg, Virginia, on Feb. 11, 1985, when he was 23 and she was just 16. David and Louise reportedly grew up in nearby Princeton, West Virginia, just over the state line.

Louise’s half-brother Billy Lambert spoke with PEOPLE and said his sister met David at church. The two “ran away” to get married, Lambert explained, but they returned home to West Virginia after police caught up with them. At that point, Louise’s disapproving father reluctantly signed off on the union.

They would eventually move to Texas, where David worked as an engineer and Louise would have their first child at the age of 20. After 17 years in Texas, they moved to California, and were planning another move at the time of their arrests.

2. They Distanced Themselves From Relatives, and Renewed Vows to Each Other 3 Times

During heir marriage, the Turpins renewed their vows at least three times, according to the Las Vegas Elvis impersonator who presided over each ceremony.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

As the years passed, the Turpins slowly started to distance themselves from relatives — in some cases, becoming estranged. One estranged relative, Louise’s sister, Teresa Robinette, described some of the couple’s rebellious behavior during an interview with Megyn Kelly in January.

Robinette said the Turpins felt they missed out on some of the fun their friends without kids had, so they started acting differently after having several children.

David and Louise Turpin

As Louise was approaching 40, the couple stopped attending church and “said they were experimenting with different religions.” They also allegedly started going out to bars when, before, they had never even taken a sip of alcohol.

“The very weird thing to me, that I would never do, is she told me her and David met a man online from Huntsville, Alabama, and that they were on their way to meet him,” Robinette said. “She was going to sleep with him, and David was okay with it. I told her I thought it was a mistake. But I know that she met this man at a motel and slept with him in Alabama.”

A year later, Robinette said the couple returned to the hotel, spending the night in the same room on the same bed.

3. Louise Wanted Another Child

Lambert also told PEOPLE that Louise was interested in having another child with David, noting his half-sister had “always wanted a big family.”

According to Lambert, Louise admired reality TV mom Kate Gosellin, of the Kate Plus 8 show, who was the mother of sextuplets and twin daughters.

“She had mentioned the Kate Plus 8 show, that it was a cool reality show,” Lambert recalled. “I think deep down that is what she wanted. The last conversation we had on the phone she had mentioned David is looking into a school bus because their 15 seat van is filled up.”

The Turpins have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them. They face up to life in prison if convicted on all charges.

The Turpins

4. Relatives Allege Louise Is In Denial Over Severity of Allegations

Elizabeth Flores, Louise’s sister, appeared on The Dr. Oz Show and described a prison visit with both parents, and said her sister appeared “almost at peace” and “in a daze,” as if “something’s not clicking right in the head … It’s all ‘woe is me.’”

Flores said she was “shocked” during the visit that Louise did not ask how her children were, and said it was almost as if Louise feels “everything’s going to be alright.” She said she thought her sister was “living a fantasy and she wants to keep it all hidden. She’s playing a game.”

David acted in a strikingly different manner than his wife. He sobbed during the encounter, Flores said.

“When I went in there, I immediately saw that he knew he had done wrong, he was remorseful, he cried the whole entire time. It wasn’t fake.”

David was like “a little boy that was ready to confess everything he had done,” Flores said.

“He kept saying, ‘I wish I could tell you about what we’ve done, what happened.’ … He had been advised not to,” she alleged.

Inside Bachelor in Paradise’s Tanner and Jade Roper Tolbert’s Life as New Parents

Jade Roper Tolbert and husband Tanner Tolbert are taking new parenthood in stride.

The reality stars, who fell in love on season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise, welcomed their daughter Emerson “Emmy” Avery in August and now reveal to PEOPLE the ways their lives — and marriage — have shifted.

“It changes your priorities in life and makes you think of things a little differently,” says Tolbert, 30. “Watching Jade be a mom has been pretty awesome.”

Adds Roper Tolbert, 31, “I love being a mom. We’ve been enjoying just being new parents and every new thing is so exciting for us. She’s a little treasure.”

Of their 6-month-old’s most recent milestones, the couple says she has started eating solid foods, rolling over, making consonant sounds and teething. They also took her traveling for the first time in January on a trip to St. Lucia.

“It was awesome, but in hindsight, we probably should’ve brought my mom or someone to babysit so we could have a little bit of alone time because that was tough,” Tolbert says.

Finding alone time to spend together in general is tough for the two these days, but Tolbert says that luckily his mom moved back to Kansas City, Missouri, and has become their “resident babysitter.”

“If we do date nights, it’s something easy like a movie where we’re gone for a couple hours and then we always just end up talking about her anyway,” Roper Tolbert says as her husband adds, “The first date we went on, we went to a movie and Jade started crying.”

“That was when she was really little,” Roper Tolbert explains. “She was maybe 4 weeks old and the hormones, they get you. Now it’s nice.”

For more coverage, follow our babies magazine on Flipboard.

Roper Tolbert’s next trip will include a visit to see her fellow Bachelor in Paradise alum and best friend Carly Waddell at the end of March so she and Emerson can meet Waddell and husband Evan Bass‘ new baby girl, Isabella Evelyn, whom they welcomed on Feb. 15.

“We’ll get to meet her baby and see if they’re little besties,” she says. “It has been fun being able to relate to her because not a lot of my friends have babies yet.”

As to how Roper Tolbert thinks Waddell will be as a mom, she says, “I know she’ll do great,” adding, “Even what I’ve seen so far, you can already tell she has taken on motherhood so gracefully.”

RELATED: Bachelor in Paradise Alums Carly Waddell and Evan Bass Welcome Daughter Isabella Evelyn

Like Waddell and Bass, the Tolberts tied the knot in a televised ceremony in Mexico in February 2016. One day, they plan on sharing the story of how they met with Emerson.

“She’s the first Paradise baby,” Roper Tolbert says. “She has her own little Instagram account and so a lot of it has to do with that. I feel like someday she’s going to want to know, ‘Why are all of these people following me?’ We’ll have to eventually share the story.”

Whether they would let her go on one of The Bachelor franchises like her parents, Tolbert says, “I don’t know if the show will be around that long but if she wanted to, who are we to say no? It’d be pretty hypocritical of us if we told her no.”

“I would like to say, ‘No, I wouldn’t let her go on the show,’ ” Roper Tolbert says. “But also, if that was something she was really interested in doing, then I would support her.”

RELATED: Bachelor in Paradise’s Jade Roper Tolbert Details the Night of Her 7-Hour Labor: “I Kept Telling Myself I Can Do This”

Despite their busy new lives as parents, Tolbert is working on getting rid of his “dad bod” with Nutrisystem For Men.

“I didn’t even realize that I had gained some weight during her pregnancy because I never used a scale or anything like that,” he says. “I wear a lot of sweatpants. I started Nutrisystem and lost 16 pounds in six weeks. I’m back to my normal weight and feeling a lot better.”

Plus, their life might get even busier soon, as they both want additional kids. “We’re definitely going to at least try to have some more,” Tolbert says. “We’re debating between three and four right now.”

Roper Tolbert agrees. “He wants that boy so if the next one’s a boy, then we’re probably going to have three.”

Carson Daly Pays Tribute to Dad as He Returns to Today After Parents’ Back-to-Back Deaths

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Carson Daly made an emotional return to the Today show on Thursday, paying tribute to his stepfather Richard Caruso, who died on Tuesday after a battle with bone cancer – just five weeks after the his mother Pattie Daly Caruso died of a heart attack.

“It’s been a rough month for my family,” Daly, 44, explained while sitting with co-anchors Matt Lauer, Savannah GuthrieAl Roker and Hoda Kotb on the NBC morning show.

“Last time I was here I was talking about my mom, who had unexpectedly passed away. She’d been the primary caregiver of my stepfather, who passed away on Tuesday now. His health was in peril, we know that was a foregone conclusion. Mom had been taking care of Dad. Mom was the one that went so quickly, and then we lost my Dad on Tuesday. It’s just been a crazy month. It’s just been really really hard.”

Daly explained that his biological father died when he was 5, and his mother Pattie married Richard  — whom he affectionately called “Pops” — three years later.

“He took us in,” Daly said. “He’s my role model, my mentor. Incredible guy. Old school — grew up in the depression. One of those guys who knew that life was going to be hard. Led by example, not by words. My mom had all the sayings and isms — you know, ‘You can shoot for the stars!’ And my dad woke up early, went to work, had a great deep personal faith that I later in life would gravitate towards. Again, led by example.”

“Family-first — we always had dinner in high school. He was like, ‘Hey, I don’t care what you do after, but we’re all going to have family dinner at 6 p.m. and then you can run off and go to the movies.’ That was dad,” Daly continued. “Drank Cutty Sark, worked hard, loved golf. Golf would be the sport that brought our relationship together. He taught me so much about life and really the man that I am. I’m grateful that I had 85 years with him. He was an incredible person.”

RELATED VIDEO: Carson Daly’s ‘Hero’ Stepfather Passes Away Five Weeks After the Death of His Mother: ‘He’s Reunited with Mom Now’

When Lauer told Daly that his parents must have been proud of him, the former TLR host got emotional.

“It’s hard to grasp that considering they were both healthy in June,” Daly said. “The enormity of this, the totality of a loss so soon, is still a struggle. But you’re absolutely right, we’re so blessed to have them both. They were incredible.”

“I realize the more pain that I feel losing my parents is testament to how much of an impact they made in my life,” he added. “They clearly equipped me with the tools to be able to handle it, and that’s because they were incredible parents.”

Before the end of the segment, Daly went on to express gratitude to his Today show family. “Thanks again to everybody here,” he said. “You guys are my family, and I love you guys.”

Earlier this month, Daly returned to Today to pay tribute to his mother, who died Sept. 17.

“When she walked in this room, she lit the place up,” Kotb told Daly on the Oct. 4 episode. “There was something special and unique.”

“She also stole everything!” said Daly with a laugh. “I’m telling you, going through her things, it’s an example of how much she loved life. She literally was a kleptomaniac. If it wasn’t nailed down, she took it. I’m talking about wine corks she would write on, ash trays, menus from around the world, rundowns from the Today show. She died at 73, but she lived a life that was passionately twice as much, so she really died at 146.”

“By the way, you guys gave my mom the greatest gift ever by employing me on the Today show, so she could watch me every single morning in her kitchen, and I know that she did,” he added. “There’s no place she’d rather have me be than right back here.”

Today airs weekdays beginning at 7 a.m. on NBC.

The family of 19-year-old Penn State student Timothy Piazza is speaking out following his February death after an alleged hazing ritual, blaming the incident on the fraternity members who allegedly pressured their son to consume large amounts of alcohol and then neglected to get help for hours after Timothy fell multiple times.

Timothy’s parents, Jim and Evelyn, and his brother, Mike, sat down with Today’s Matt Lauer on Mother’s Day.

“This wasn’t boys being boys, Matt,” Jim said. “This was men who intended to force feed lethal amounts of alcohol into other young men, and what happened throughout the night was just careless disregard for human life.”

Jim continued, “They basically treated our son as roadkill and a ragdoll.”

According to the findings of a grand jury, Timothy allegedly participated in a hazing ritual at Beta Theta Pi called “the gauntlet,” whereby the pledges were made to drink at a fast pace at a series of drinking stations — such as the shotgun and wine station — for the purpose of getting “pledges drunk in a very short amount of time.”

Authorities said the fraternity had purchased $ 1,179 of alcohol, including cases of vodka, beer, wine and 15 cases of the malt liquor Four Loko for the party Timothy attended.

“Nobody should consume that much alcohol,” Evelyn said. “That’s torture.”

In addition to the alleged amount of liquor consumed, others at the party allegedly neglected to call 911 for 12 hours despite the Timothy’s allegedly falling multiple times — including one alleged instance in which he tumbled down a flight of stairs to the basement.

Jim said he asked doctors if the outcome may have been different if Timothy had been brought to a hospital sooner, and the doctors confirmed it would have.

“It killed him,” the father said of the alleged wait to call for help.

Part of what ensued that night — Piazza’s injuries and the alleged disregard with which he was treated — was captured on video surveillance that was shown to the grand jury.

The family said that they had not seen the footage.

“I don’t want to see it as a parent because I feel like it’s going to be incredibly painful and the last memories of my son will be him being abused for twelve hours and dying a slow and painful death,” Jim said, noting that he would watch it with Penn State officials who could make a difference in the school’s culture.

The Piazzas also joined George Stephanopoulos live on Good Morning America Monday, where they said they plan to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the university as well as fraternity members.

“I don’t know where their conscience was, where the voice in the back of their head was saying, ‘He’s hurt. I gotta do the right thing,’” Evelyn told Stephanopoulos. “I don’t understand how they could be so heartless and inhumane.”

Jim alleged,”They intended to bring these gentlemen to alcohol-poisoning levels right from the outset.” He added, “At the end of the day, this was planned and orchestrated and I think they all need to be held accountable.”

The father also said that Penn State was at fault for allegedly fostering a dangerous drinking and hazing culture on campus.

“They’ve turned a blind eye to it, but that time is over,” he alleged.

Jim added, “The world is watching. I think things are going to change. Families want things to change. We’re here to be the advocate. Tim Piazza is not just our son anymore. He represents everyone’s son and daughter that is looking to go to college and potentially joining Greek life.”

Fashion Deals Update:

American Parents Are Ditching The Name ‘Caitlyn’ In All Its Forms

A fun bit of news circulated across the internet on Friday: Kylo, like Kylo Ren, had become the hottest name for baby boys in America, according to new data released by the Social Security Administration.

Between 2015 and 2016, the name jumped from the 3,269th most popular name for baby boys to the 901st ― making it the name that increased the most in popularity, according to the SSA.

But on the other side of the spectrum, a far uglier trend emerged. Among the names for baby girls that dropped most in popularity, the top four were all some form of the name “Caitlyn.” 

It’s not hard to connect the trend to Caitlyn Jenner’s decision to come out as transgender in April 2015. Three months later, in July, Jenner accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPY Awards, which caused widespread anger among moderates and conservatives throughout the country.

(Later on, Jenner would anger many on the left-leaning side of the country as well by voting for then-candidate Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.)

Transgender rights have become one of the most divisive issues in the country in the two years since Jenner came out. In North Carolina, a “bathroom bill,” which required Americans to use the restroom corresponding to the sex on their birth certificate, was applauded as a way to keep young girls safe from transgender women. 

But despite those fears, it is actually transgender Americans who continue to face staggering rates of abuse and sexual assault throughout the U.S. According to government estimates, at least half of the transgender community is “sexually abused or assaulted at some point in their lives.” Many more incidents are likely not reported.

Parents, Please Don’t Assume Your Kids Are Invited To The Wedding

The rules of wedding etiquette are constantly changing, making it difficult for modern brides, grooms and guests to find up-to-date and correct information. That’s why we launched #MannersMondays, a series in which we ask our followers on Facebook to submit their most burning etiquette-related questions. Then, with the help of our team of etiquette experts, we get you the right answers to your biggest Big Day dilemmas. Check out this week’s question below!

“What do I do about parents RSVPing with their children when it was specifically stated that only the parents are invited?” ― Travis 

Amber HarrisonWedding Papers Divas‘ resident etiquette expert — is here to help us answer this week’s question. Here’s what she had to say:

Unfortunately this is a situation that happens too often. As a refresher, the best way to clearly communicate which family members are invited is by listing each of their names on the invitation envelope. The omission of a child’s name means that it is an adult-only affair.

There are plenty of times when this subtle message goes unrecognized. If this happens to you, the best course of action is a phone call, and the sooner the better. While it might be uncomfortable for you, don’t put this one off. The longer you wait, the harder it will be for the parents to accept – and to make arrangements for childcare! Call these guests and explain candidly that the invitation was just meant for them. Once you’ve made a decision about kids at your wedding, stick with it. Exceptions will only cause questions and hurt feelings from other guests.

This Interfaith Couple Refuses To Let Their Parents Keep Them Apart

Two years into dating, Allie and Mat say they have no qualms about being in an interfaith relationship. Their parents, on the hand, are a different story.

In a new video from The Skin Deep documentary series, the couple discuss their religions ― Allie practices Judaism and Mat is a Catholic ― and how their families have suggested their relationship will end in heartache.

“My dad was just like, ‘Oh, her family’s not going to like you just because you’re Catholic and she’s Jewish,’” Mat says. “But I don’t really date you for your family.” 

Allie, though, admits that she initially worried that their parents were onto something.

“I remember being so terrified that, what if they’re correct? What if I’m fighting and it’s not going to work?” Allie admits.

Interestingly enough, when Mat asks Allie to share when she feels closest to him, she says it’s when their families meddle.

“It doesn’t matter with all the battles,” she says. “You’re my best friend.”

Watch the clip above to hear more of the couple’s story, including how they intend to raise their future kids in both religions.

The Best ‘Lazy Games’ For Exhausted Parents To Play With Their Kids

Playing with energetic kids can be pretty exhausting. But thankfully the funny ladies of The BreakWomb have a solution.

In their newest comedy video, “Lazy Games to Play With Kids,” the moms share some of their favorite ways to avoid expending energy. The “lazy games” for parents include playing lifeguard (and casting yourself as the swimmer waiting to be saved), playing doctor (and casting yourself as the patient undergoing surgery) and playing superheroes (and casting yourself as the captive needing to be rescued by Superman, Wonder Woman or Spider-Man).

There’s also the tactic of playing hide and seek but never actually looking for your hiding child or the classic “Who Can Keep Their Eyes Closed The Longest?”

We’re sensing a pattern here…

Powerful Ad Reminds World Dads Are Parents, Too

Following up on its powerful ad about motherhood, Dove is celebrating dads with another emotional video.

The #RealDads ad for Baby Dove features video clips of dads with their kids to highlight the role they play in their children’s lives. 

The ad was inspired in part by research from Dove Men+Care brand. While mothers feel pressure to be perfect parents, fathers aren’t expected to be essential caregivers to their children. 

“Research tells us that the media focuses on fathers as ‘providers’ and ‘fixers’ over three times more often than as ‘emotional caregivers’ and over four times more often than a ‘daily caregiver,’ diminishing their role as parents ― when in fact, 97 percent of dads say they are involved in their child(ren)’s life and 7 in 10 see themselves as highly involved,” a Dove spokesperson told HuffPost.

Dove hopes this new campaign helps break down the stereotypes and preconceived notions that new parents face. 

As the captions state, “No matter which way you care for your baby, just know there’s no one ‘right’ way. Only our way. To #RealDads everywhere, trust your way.”

These Honest ‘Parenting Support’ Cards Say What Parents Really Need To Hear

There are greeting cards that congratulate new parents and parents-to-be on their growing families. So it makes sense that there should also be cards that acknowledge breast pumping, sleep deprivation and the other trials of raising children.

This week, greeting card designer Emily McDowell launched a new line of “Parenting Support” cards. The line features cards with messages like “You’re not a monster. Parenting is really hard” and “Hang in there, you’re doing great.”

”Parenting is really hard, and yet it’s frowned upon to publicly admit anything about it that could be perceived as negative, because of the fear that we’ll be judged as not loving our children enough, or pegged as a ‘bad mom,’” McDowell told The Huffington Post

“There’s a well-worn set of cultural expectations about how parents are supposed to feel about the experience of parenting, and women in particular get hammered with it, both from other people and within ourselves,” she added. “When reality doesn’t live up to those expectations, we end up with tremendous guilt and shame, and secretly concluding that ‘there must be something wrong with me’ ― which of course isn’t true.”

McDowell is a stepparent to an 11-year-old boy and also has two very young godsons. She told HuffPost her godsons’ mother has been her best friend for 25 years and served as “unofficial consultant” for her “Parenting Support” cards. 

The designer said she wants her cards to have an impact on people in the throes of parenting.  

“I hope parents who receive these cards (or even see them!) can feel a sense of relief and reassurance that they’re not failing, they’re not alone, and it’s totally normal and OK to both love your kid and have complicated feelings about being a mom or dad,” McDowell explained.

”Someone commented on my Instagram last week that she’d bought herself a whole set of our Empathy Cards (for serious illness and loss), not to send out, but to keep and look at when she wanted to feel understood,” she added. “I hope these can serve a similar purpose for parents.”

McDowell has three “Parenting Support” cards available on her website and is currently in the process of creating more. The next batch will focus on the way your relationship with your partner changes after having kids, issues of identity struggles and finding humor in parenting situations, from caring for infants to raising teenagers.

Said McDowell, “This is a hugely broad topic, and I’m really looking forward to finding different ways to look at it.”

Parents of Toddler Trapped Under Fallen Dresser Speaks Out Against Claims Video Was a Hoax

The Shoff family is setting the record straight after some have questioned the authenticity of a video showing their toddler pinned under a fallen dresser.

Little Brock and Bowdy Shoff made headlines earlier this week after their mother, Kayli, uploaded nanny cam footage showing the harrowing moments in which 2-year-old Bowdy pushed a fallen dresser off of his twin brother in the nursery of their Orem, Utah, home.

However, some skeptics have called the video a hoax, noting that the dresser was empty and the camera appeared to be focused on the furniture. But the boys’ father, Rick, said both were simple coincidences.

“They would get into the drawers, pull all the clothes that we had in the drawer and put them out and just throw them all over the room during naptime or whatever,” Rick explained during a Thursday appearance on Good Morning America. “So we just decided the easiest thing was to empty the drawers and put all their clothes in, like, the closet.”

He added: are pretty active so we do what ever we can to … make sure we can keep clean.”

Kayli previously explained that she and her husband didn’t know what happened until they checked their security footage and saw the scary ordeal unfold. However, some have claimed that the couple staged the incident, noting that Rick works for a camera company.

“I’m just an employee. I’m in sales for them and there’s thousands of sales reps for the company,” Rick explained. “We have cameras throughout our whole house and that camera’s just positioned in the best angle to see the entire room. So, it wasn’t positioned just to have just the dresser.”

He added that the cameras in the family’s home are attached to the walls and are not adjustable.

The boys were uninjured and the parents have since bolted the IKEA dresser to the wall, Kayli previously told GMA.

These 4 Precious Pups Helped Their Parents Tie The Knot

Shandess Griffin is a devoted mom to four precious fur babies: Zero, Holden, Navi and Arbor.

When she tied the knot with Jason Griffin on Sept. 19 in Tofino, British Columbia, there was no doubt that the whole gang would be right by their side.

“There wouldn’t have been a wedding without them,” Shandess told The Huffington Post. “It was a spectacular feeling to have all my loved ones there and it just wouldn’t be complete without my daily companions!”

Zero, an 8-year-old Samoyed, is the oldest of the bunch. Next up is Holden, a 6-year-old Bernese mountain dog, followed by Navi — a 4-year-old Australian Shepherd mix. The baby of the group is Arbor, a 2-year-old Bernese mountain dog. 

The boys sported dapper bow ties for the occasion, and Zero even had his fur styled. 

At the reception, Zero and Holden joined the newlyweds for their first dance.

 

Zero and Holden, pictured above, have been a part of the couple’s love story since day one. Jason and Shandess first met online after he sent her a message, asking if he could accompany her and her dogs on a walk. 

“He struck the right chord when he talked about the dogs right away,” Shandess told HuffPost. “Dogs are my world, especially my own and it was very important that he was a dog lover. My dogs loved him immediately and that spoke volumes!”

Since the couple got together five years ago, they have added Navi and Arbor to their brood. When Jason popped the question in June 2014, all four dogs played a part in the proposal. 

In December, the newlyweds will be adding yet another pup to their growing family — an Australian Shepherd named Harvest.

TOPLESS WOMEN CONTROVERSY: A Message to Parents visiting Times Square

If you are looking for Disneyland, then you are in the wrong state. This is New York. Times Square is a PUBLIC SPACE. And in New York City (and New York State) being topless in public is LEGAL. If businesses are upset that the law is hurting their bank accounts, then they should get the politicians to make Times Square private (which is what I presume they are trying to do). In the meantime, let’s all stop pretending that the painted women in Times Square is a violation of anything real. It is only an offense to people who come to New York City (many with kids) and want it to be an escape from reality. Well, New York City is reality, and we respect civil liberties here.

Not only is it legal to be topless in New York City, but for the sake of art, full nudity is legal in public for both men and women. I have proven this MANY times including many times in Times Square. I recently returned to New York after producing the first Amsterdam Bodypainting Day. Following a successful NYC Bodypainting Day in July (100 fully nude models in the public streets), I thought it was a good time to take the message of artistic freedom to Europe.

I was only gone for a couple of weeks and look what happened. People started freaking out about topless women! So upon my return to New York, I went back to Times Square and began painting to reaffirm that full nudity is still legal for the sake of art.

2015-08-28-1440781951-9000341-nudeinTS2fb.JPG

If the city has issue with aggressive pan handling in Times Square, then they should restrict it. But they should but restrict all of it. It’s a shame that it was only when female breasts were involved that it was decided there needed to be a change (this is prime example of gender inequality-the Naked Cowboy has been topless for decades).

Some people say that the art on the “desnudas” is not good art or not art at all or that they’re just trying to make money. Please! How many times have you seen art at a gallery or a museum, and you don’t even know what it is? If it’s a painting, it’s art. And as far as making money, that’s what everyone is trying to do. In fact, it is only because some of the richest people are in danger of making less money that we are discussing this in the first place.

10 Smart Back-To-School Tips For Divorced Parents

Back-to-school season is stressful for all parents but it’s a little more complicated when you’re divorced: Who’s doing the annual trek to Target to load up on school supplies — and more importantly, who’s paying? Are both of you listed on important school forms? 

 To make heading back to school a little less overwhelming for you and the kiddos, we asked HuffPost Divorce bloggers and readers on Facebook to share their tried-and-true advice. Here’s what they had to say:

1. Split the cost of back-to-school supplies. 

Between backpacks, calculators, school uniforms and that extra big box of Crayola crayons, your kids’ back-to-school supplies can end up costing a small fortune. To lessen the individual burden among parents, Lynsey Mattingly and her ex divvy up purchasing responsibilities.

“My ex and I always separate who’s buying what, with him buying the backpacks, lunch boxes and water bottles while I usually get the entire supply list the teachers send home,” she told us. “It comes out to about the same price and this way we are both playing to our strengths: he gets a few quality items that he’s better at picking out and I get the specific, detailed things.”

2. Create a shared Google calendar to keep everyone in the loop. 

Each school year, Elizabeth Denham dutifully updates the families’ shared Google calendar with the kids’ upcoming school events. This way, no one misses back-to-school night or a holiday performance. 

“For all of the really important events, I send invites through the calendar as soon as I enter the date so that I don’t have to remember to do it by phone,” she said. 

3. Drop the kids off together on the first day of school. 

The first day of school can be a scary, overwhelming experience for even the most confident kiddo. If at all possible, try to free up your schedules so both of you can drop the kids off and show your support, said Leah Porritt. 

“On the first morning of school this year, we met before and walked our son to school together,” she said. “He had both of us there to send him off to first grade and I think that meant a lot to him — even if the normal school year mornings are a mixture of mom, dad, stepparents or before-and-after care. For his sake, we put differences aside and make an effort to both be present together.”  

4. And if your ex can’t be there for day one, text a pic. 

If your ex is unable to make it that first day, be generous and send him or her a pic. (You have at least 20 on your camera roll — why not share the love?) 

“Texting a pic is an act of goodwill and will be greatly appreciated,” said blogger Valerie DeLoach. “And you never know — one kind act could change the whole dynamic of your current relationship.”  

5. Let your kids’ teachers know who’s who in your blended family. 

Your family tree likely got a lot more complicated post-divorce, especially if you or your ex remarried. Early on in the school year, fill your kids’ teachers in on who’s who in your family; that way, there’s no confusion when your child’s stepdad picks her up. 

“I do it because it can be confusing for teachers to hear my son talk about his parents, stepparents and numerous siblings on either side,”said Porritt. “He’s old enough now to explain who is who, but it makes it more comfortable for him if his teacher already understands his extended and blended family situation and doesn’t need to question him!”

Another bonus of touching base with your kids’ teacher? Backpacks that are a little less heavy, said reader Carmen Poff. 

“When my ex and I tell the teachers our kids have two homes, most will send home a second set of text books so they won’t have to haul them back and forth,” she said. 

6. Attend parent-teacher conferences together. 

Heading to parent-teacher conferences as a team — like writer Carolyn Flower does every year with her kids’ dad — sends a strong message to your children and their teachers: Regardless of what happened in the past, today we’re partners who have the kids’ best interests at heart. 

“As a collaboratively divorced family, we’ve never missed a parent-teacher meeting,” Flower said. “We feel that demonstrating we are still a team shows the children and the school they are loved and supported in all they do. It plants healthy seeds for successful mindsets.” 

7. If your ex lives out of state, have him or her call into the meeting. 

Don’t let distance interfere with both parents taking a proactive, involved role, said Honorée Corder. 

“Because my ex lives in another state, when it’s time for parent-teacher conferences, we schedule a time that works for both of us so he can be conferenced in,” she said. 

8. Set times when you and your ex can debrief on your kids’ progress at school. 

To ensure that no book report or soccer meet falls through the cracks, Kasey Ferris and her ex have have scheduled communication days where they discuss and update each other on their son’s life. 

“Every Sunday and Wednesday there’s an email exchange where we discuss the week, any tests coming up and updates on projects that need to be completed,” she said. “Anything crucial or time-sensitive is handled via text, but everything else goes into a Sunday/Wednesday email. It’s created a lot of peace between us.” 

9. Don’t leave your ex’s side out of the family tree.

Regardless of how you feel about your ex, your kids still need him or her in their lives. When there’s a family tree assignment — or a photo project that calls on family photos — rise above any bitterness and include your ex’s side of the family (yes, that includes new spouses). 

“If there is a project at school that asks for family photos I always make sure that the kids try to include pictures of their mom, their mom’s partner and kids as well as my own partner and kids,” said reader Barry Fraser. 

10. Create a group chat where you discuss your kids’ wins and progress. 

Start a group chat that includes the parents and the kids and send texts whenever your kids ace an assignment or need a little encouragement to bring that C grade up. It’s a little communication trick that has worked wonders for blogger Emma Bathie and her family. 

“The idea is to direct the reminders and notes to the kids but they’re there for both parents to see and comment on if needed,” she said. “It can also be a nice way for the parents to make positive/encouraging comments about each other in front of the kids (‘Hey Matt, I really appreciate you picking up the kids for me last night when I was stuck in a meeting and then traffic. It was really helpful!’) You’re also showing the kids you can be the grown-ups they need you to be.” 

Together, you’ve got this school year!

Baby’s First Tattoo: A Memory Book for Modern Parents


MILLIONS OF PEOPLE THINK CHILDREN ARE THE CUTEST, CUDDLIEST, MOST WONDERFUL, SAINTLY CREATURES IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. THESE PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE CHILDREN. THEY HAVE NICE THINGS. THEY COLLECT FRAGILE POTTERY. THEY HAVE CANDLELIT DINNERS IN FANCY RESTAURANTS. THEY GO TO MOVIES. THEY HAVE WHITE CARPETS. PEOPLE WITH SMALL CHILDREN HAVEN’T BEEN TO A RESTAURANT WITHOUT PLASTIC SILVERWARE IN YEARS. THE LAST MOVIE THEY SAW IN A THEATER IS NOW ON AMERICAN MOVIE CLASSICS. THEIR HOUSE LOOKS LIKE IT WAS DECORATED BY PEE-WEE HERMAN. "BABY’S FIRST TATTOO" IS FOR THEM. For years parents have been buying baby books to document all the precious moments in their new baby’s life — Baby’s First Tooth, Baby’s First Haircut, Baby’s First Step. What have been ignored for too long are those "alternative" precious moments that really should be written down, celebrated, and remembered — Baby’s First Projectile Vomit, Baby’s First Tantrum in a Crowded Grocery Store, Baby’s 10,000th Dirty Diaper. Otherwise you might forget them and think of becoming parents once again.

The Annoying Kids’ Songs Parents Can’t Get Out Of Their Heads, Remixed

One unexpected consequence of raising little kids is the never-ending repetition of annoying kids’ songs that get stuck in your head and cause you to sing things like “Zooming through the sky, Little Einsteins” when you’re all alone.

In his latest “New Father Chronicles” video, dad La Guardia Cross put together a video of parents singing those irritatingly addictive songs, which have “brainwashed” them for life.  

It’s a delightful medley of lines like “This is the song that never ends,” “Doc McStuffins, Doc McStuffins” and “If you’re happy and you know it!”

Cross’ caption sums up this source of parental anguish: “These songs haunt our dreams. Help us.”

The 4-1-1 on Surviving Teenhood: Essential Tips for Parents: Teenage Temptations; Teachable Moments; and More!


When I say the word teenager what comes to mind? If you are like most people, the words rebellion, trouble, and stubborn come to mind. You might also think: drugs, crime, pregnancy, peer pressure, sex, puberty, driving, attitudes, relationships, irresponsible, and messy. Those about to go through the teen years might think: independence, first job, fun, sports, adventure, dating, invincible, and driving. It is time to change the way adults see teenagers. Teens today are faced with drugs, teen pregnancy, texting or sexting, alcohol, peer pressure, bullying, and other dangers. Why do our teens use drugs and alcohol, gamble, or fall prey to other destructive behaviors such as eating disorders or cutting? We will walk through these and other scenarios, and I will offer guidance on how to get through it. We take our children through childhood, into teenhood, and then onto adulthood. Remember: if you go into the adventure together, you will come out of it together.

Murphy’s Law for Parents of 3-Year-Olds

I am going to take my parenting “expert” hat off and put my mom-of-a-3-year-old hat on. I’ve been feeling under the weather, and although I’m a glass-half-full kind of gal, I started to write these to make myself laugh. I hope you have some chuckles too. And yes, these did actually happen.

Murphy’s Law for Parents of 3-Year-Olds

You will cut the wrong end of the freezie, stir the yogurt the wrong way, break the banana or use the wrong-colored cup.

The day you are late for an important appointment is the day you will unbuckle the car seat, as you always do, and your 3-year-old will shriek like he is being stabbed and refuse to get out.

The timer will beep, reminding you to take your very expensive tenderloin steak off the BBQ, at the same time your 3-year-old yells frantically from the bathroom that he is done pooping and needs your help.

The amount of time your 3-year-old spends on his bike without training wheels is inversely related to how much time it took you to find the tools and get the training wheels off.

The moment you finally sit down at the end of the day, and finally decide on a movie to watch, your 3-year-old will slink into the living room, saying, “I can’t sleep.”

You will cut the grilled cheese sandwich the wrong way. And put the ketchup in the wrong spot.

The morning of the scheduled weekend away BY YOURSELF that you have been waiting for all year, you will discover you have a fever — that your 3-year-old had days before.

The milk will get spilled, so you might as well just leave the paper towel holder on the table.

The words “I want to do it!” go with “Uh-oh.”

The moment you high-five yourself for getting your 3-year-old out the door — dressed, bladder emptied, tummy filled, teeth cleaned, ON TIME — is the moment you realize you didn’t eat breakfast.

You will walk out of the house with your shirt on inside-out. A few times. You may even get to work and realize you still have your pajamas on.

andrea nair

If you take the wagon, he will want to walk. If you don’t take the wagon, he will refuse to walk.

The day your 3-year-old discovers where the scissors are kept is the day you leave your well-thought-out to-do list on the kitchen table.

The night you forget to put the mattress cover on the bed is the night your 3-year-old will pee so fiercely, you’d swear an adult did it.

When you finally feel confident enough to wear more expensive pieces of clothing around the kids, your 3-year-old will manage to get himself some yogurt and want a big hug for his accomplishment.

Your 3-year-old’s favorite pair of shorts — that he must wear every day — will be white. Well, at first, anyway.

The first time you try leaving your child inside while you go out and do some backyard weeding, he will 1) go out the front door, 2) poop on the front lawn and 3) be discovered by your husband, who will just happen to come home early that day.

(By the way, in between fits of laughter, he said, “I love that that happened on your watch!“)

Working Parents and the Welfare State: Family Change and Policy Reform in Scandinavia

Working Parents and the Welfare State: Family Change and Policy Reform in Scandinavia


The mass entry of women into the labor market, the decline of the male breadwinner norm and the rise of the dual-earner family have all profoundly transformed the societies of the Western industrialized world. This book argues that childcare has become increasingly defamilized or collectivized as mothers have joined the labor market, causing significant impact on welfare policies. As a result, the complex relationship between family change and policy reform calls for a rethinking of the relationship between the welfare state, labor markets and working parents. Rather than concentrating on the changing models of motherhood, Leira advocates the need to consider the effects of the gendered division of work and welfare on fathers'' opportunities to be supported as carers for children.

How to Handle Divorced Parents at Your Wedding with the Least Drama

Some of my brides and grooms struggle about what to do with their separated or divorced parents at their wedding. The goal, obviously, is for everybody to have fun and avoid any potential drama. As a wedding planner, my goal is to help minimize it so the bride and couple can really enjoy their wedding. To do this often requires some thought and planning ahead so you don’t have to make any decisions on the fly and risk an awkward situation.

If your parents have been divorced a long time and have a copacetic relationship, you might not have anything to worry about. I’ve seated plenty of divorced parents right next to each other – sometimes even with new spouses all in the same row – and everybody behaved appropriately.

The most difficult situation to handle is a recent breakup or divorce – especially if one parent wants to bring their new partner to the wedding and the other isn’t seeing anyone. It can feel like a total slap in the face to the unescorted parents. In these situations, we often suggest that the “single” parent ask a good friend to be their formal escort. It doesn’t fix everything, but it gives them somebody to dance with and they won’t feel like the odd person out.

On several occasions, we’ve had crazy drama because of moms who just couldn’t handle the whole situation. The emotional stress of their daughter or son’s wedding day on top of seeing their ex is hard enough. But when she has to attend the wedding alone and bitter, and he’s there with his new lady friend or wife, it’s like a knife in the back. Sometimes, they compensate with alcohol.

For just that reason, I know of several couples who have asked all parents to leave the dates at home so as to avoid any controversy. Especially when it’s something rather tacky like Dad and his secretary having had an affair that ended the 30-year marriage. The request may cause drama when it’s made – and your parent may have to deal with a shit fit from his new love – but if you let them know early enough that you don’t want them to bring that guest, there’s time for everybody to cool off before the big day arrives.

I’ve had a lot of conversions with inebriated Mothers of the Bride stuck in this sort of situation. They tend to stand, very obviously, apart from the group, or overcompensate by being loud and joking about their ex’s date. When Dad brings someone like the home-wrecking secretary mentioned above, Mom is DYING because the little twit who broke up her marriage is getting a seat of honor next to the man with whom she was supposed to spend the rest of her life. We had one Mother of the Bride get drunk before the ceremony and spend cocktails publicly begging the bride’s father to reconcile. She had to be taken back to the hotel by the bride’s brother in hysterics before dinner.

A couple of moms have fought back, going after men at the wedding to show they haven’t lost their mojo. I don’t care what they do to torture the other wedding guests (except that it embarrasses their children terribly), it’s actually kinda funny to see these cougars stalking prey that went to college with their kids. But when they go after my husband or my staff, it ceases to be cute. Don’t make me ask you to stop touching somebody after he’s already asked you to keep your hands off. That’s just plain tacky. We’re the help.

You need a plan to keep the unsteady parent on solid ground on your wedding day, or through your wedding weekend. Their best friend is your best bet – and talking to your parent’s bestie about your concerns about drama in advance will help them understand you’re asking them to take on the role of babysitter on your wedding day. The bride and groom don’t have time and really, we’re trying to avoid making bad memories that no one will ever forget.

Also, make a point to ask your friends to ask your parents to dance, especially the single parent. A little extra attention from the guests is warranted if it will boost their spirits and keep them distracted.

Plan ahead for the logical questions that come up when handling divorced parents:

– Who will be walking the bride down the aisle?
– Where will everyone be sitting?
– Who should sit with the bride and groom at dinner?
– Who makes the toast on behalf of the bride or groom?

There are simple answers to these questions, but knowing what you’re going to do in advance makes all the difference.

Walking down the aisle
If the bride wants both of her divorced parents to walk her down that aisle, that’s her prerogative. She might not have planned to do that before her parents were divorced, but if she feels like it’s appropriate given the circumstances, she may do whatever she likes. If she wants her mother to walk her down the aisle while her father sits and watches, that’s okay too. But it’s a good idea to let dad know ahead of time so he won’t be surprised and disappointed when it happens. Lots of girls stick to tradition and walk alone with their fathers.

How to Seat Divorced Parents at the Ceremony
If they don’t like each other and prefer not to be in each other’s company, seat the mom in the first row and dad in the second row. That’s what etiquette dictates. It doesn’t matter if they have dates or not, they don’t have to be seated together. Just fill in the row with their own immediate families.

How to Seat Divorced Parents at the Reception
Unless your parents really are good friends post-divorce, don’t try to seat all the parents at a “head table” with the bride and groom. Just give each set of parents (however many there are) their own tables to host and fill them in with your friends who know them and their friends they invited. That way nobody has to awkwardly tread on egg shells through dinner conversation.

Toasting the Bride and Groom
Traditionally, the fathers toast at the wedding, but that’s not really what happens anymore. More often than not, both parents make the toast together, if they’re still married. When they’re divorced, each should be given the opportunity to make a toast. If they decline, that’s fine. But let them decide if they want to offer their own best wished. If one says “oh we can just do it together,” be sure to check with the other one first before assuming anything. Do this ahead of time so nothing embarrassing happens at the main event.

A word of caution: You have to look out for well-meaning (or pot-stirring) family and friends who may introduce uninvited drama into your wedding. My half-sister tried to cause DRAMA at my wedding reception back home when she informed me that our father wanted to dance with my mother. My parents had been divorced 10 years but it was still very acrimonious. When my sister told me about it, I thought it sounded hinky. So I told her I’d check with my mom. Mom said “are you kidding me?” and I told my sister to tell our father not to ask my mom to dance. Problem solved. Five awkward minute delay in my fun, but nothing bad happened. Funny thing is, when I asked my dad about it a few months later, he said he’d never said he wanted to dance with my mom. He’d gotten his licks in by bringing his housekeeper to the reception as a date just to tweak my mom. It worked. So why was my sister messing with her? Hmmm.

Have a plan for how to handle all the usual things – know if you’re going to take full family photos or do separate sets with both sides of your family. Yes, these things do come up and it’s better to be prepared with an answer to the question when it’s asked. If you can clue in the photographer ahead of time about the potential for tension, they can be more sensitive. Make sure your wedding planner is in the loop. If the coordinator at the church is handing the seating, have a private discussion ahead of the wedding rehearsal. An ounce of prevention is worth the peace of mind you can have on your wedding day.

Until next time, happy wedding planning from Weddings in Vieques and Sandy Malone Weddings & Events!

Parents Who Drive You Crazy: Four Steps for Handling Emotionally Immature Parents

Do you ever feel like the mature one in your relationship with your parents? If so, you are like countless others who are hurt and frustrated by their emotionally immature parents. It is difficult to deal with parents who have not developed enough empathy to care sufficiently about the feelings of others. These immature parents focus on their own interests to the point where they make their children feel inadequate, unseen, and chronically guilty.

While the emotionally immature parent may act like a normal adult in the outside world, their self-involved and controlling behavior comes out full force at home. They ignore their children’s emotional needs because they are focused on their own consuming desires for attention and control. As a result, their children end up feeling insignificant and emotionally alone.

Like small children, emotionally immature parents are fixated on their immediate demands. They expect others to anticipate their needs first. They undermine their children’s confidence and self-esteem by acting like the child can never do enough to make them happy. Their children become anxiously vigilant as they try to avoid the emotional backlash that comes if they don’t guess correctly what their parent wants.

It is much more useful and accurate to think of these parents as emotionally immature rather than through the lens of a clinical diagnosis, such as narcissism. Their emotional immaturity can take different forms — not all of which are diagnosable categories — but all the types cause emotional pain and deprivation in their children. Once you get the idea that these are psychologically underdeveloped personalities, it is much easier to handle them rather than thinking about them diagnostically.

Most of us instinctively know how to handle upset toddlers, but we don’t think to apply that to our gray-haired parents. Few of us would expect a preschooler to consider our needs or react sensibly if we ask them to do something they dislike. Yet with immature parents, we expect a reasonableness and empathy they don’t possess and never will. As a result, we are repeatedly confused and shocked by their lack of cooperation or sensitivity. Why must they make everything so hard? Why can’t they think about us for a change?

Dealing with difficult parents is especially hard on the emotionally sensitive child who can’t help but notice other people’s feelings. The immaturity of the parent means that these children develop the heavy responsibility of worrying about other people’s needs. These more emotionally perceptive children often over-perform as the go-to person in the family who cares about other people’s problems.

Unfortunately, these conscientious children usually keep trying to win their parent’s approval throughout their lives, but their immature parent will neither listen nor open up emotionally. If the sensitive child tries to tell the parents how he or she feels, the parents will clam up, mock, dismiss, or turn the tables with self-pity or blame. They are terrified of sincere feelings, and simply do not deal with anything emotionally intimate.

It works better to deal with emotionally immature parents using a four-step method that I call the Maturity Awareness Approach.

1. Use Your Observer Mind
Rather than trying to engage these parents, emotional detachment is much safer. Use your thinking function rather than your emotional reactivity, and you will no longer be their emotional victim. By objectively observing their self-preoccupation and control maneuvers, you gain freedom from the need for their approval.

2. Express and Then Let Go
One of the hardest things to realize is that trying to get a satisfying response from your parent won’t work. It is far more effective to say what you need to say using clear, intimate communication, while releasing any expectation that they will change. By practicing speaking up in a calm way, you strengthen yourself whether they respond positively or not.

3. Focus on the Outcome, Not the Relationship
You can’t expect empathy or fairness from an emotionally immature parent. Instead, think about the specific outcome you want, rather than trying to improve the relationship. Remember, anything emotionally intimate scares these parents. Decide what specific outcome you are aiming for, and keep going for it. For instance, you can ask for an apology, but you can’t ask for a change of heart.

4. Manage, Don’t Engage
Manage the conversation instead of reacting to what the parent says. Make explicit goals for topic and duration, and guide things toward where you want to end up. By managing toward the outcome you want, you avoid the frustration of having all conversations hijacked by your parent’s self-preoccupations. If you let them set the pace, you will end up drained and resentful. Instead of engaging with you, these parents will dominate with their most pressing interests, their pet beef, or their unmet needs. Don’t be sidetracked by their complaining or criticisms. Your job is to move things along toward the outcome you want.

Emotionally immature parents will drive you crazy if you mistake their physical age for psychological maturity. Acknowledge that you may have surpassed them developmentally a long time ago, and their insensitivities will begin to hurt a little less. Remember, they are just too young to think of you much at all.

#BackStory: Funniest Parents on Twitter Tell More!

Funny tweets: So short, so perfect. Funny tweets about parenting? Even better!

We know HuffPost Parents is THE place to find the funniest parenting tweets each week. Some of those gems leave us shouting Yes! Exactly! And some leave us asking the question that all parents ask, What the hell?

What sparks the tweets that make us laugh out loud? We just had to find out. So, we asked 10 of the contributors to The Bigger Book of Parenting Tweets to share the back story to one of their favorite tweets. As expected, they did not disappoint.

@MaryWiddicks: My 1-year-old has a new hobby: Naked climbing. He proudly strips off his clothes and diaper, then scales whatever piece of furniture strikes his fancy. The other morning I found him precariously balanced with one foot on a chair and one on the bookshelf. We made eye contact from across the room: Me with a look of horror and forbidding, and him with a mischievous grin. Before I could pluck him from his perch, he grabbed hold of the bookshelf and peed full-force, like one of those cherub statues in a fountain.

@CrazyExhaustion: I dragged my sorry self out of bed and stumbled into the kitchen, a solid three hours of sleep in the books (thank you, children). Fruit and cereal thrown together for the kids’ breakfast, and I set out to find some toothpicks I could use to prop my eyes open. In the midst of my quest to stay awake and be the responsible adult, dammit, I swiped my hand across the counter to dispose of some dried fruit that had fallen overboard during my gourmet breakfast preparations. Without thinking — or looking — I popped them into my mouth and went about my business. As they suddenly crunched under my teeth, I realized that I couldn’t recall any fruit in our house that should be crunchy…

@tchrquotes: My 6yo went to a birthday party and just kept eating. Cake, candy, fruit, pizza and punch. I was a little concerned, but he (unlike his older brother) had never really had a problem with overeating to the point of making himself sick. I decided to back off and let him enjoy himself. As bedtime approached, things were looking good. It wasn’t until about 3 a.m. that I realized I’d made a horrible mistake.

@LindaInDisguise: If you only saw the front seat of my car, you’d probably assume I was a decent human being. The minute you look behind — NO! DON’T LOOK! — You saw it, didn’t you? The back seat is a pigsty. I tackle it every now and then but not often enough. Jackets and water bottles and toys and… petrified fast food? Oh, grosssssss. Damn kids.

@PJTLynch: I was sitting on the couch, zoning out a bit on my phone, while our 9-month-old baby played on the floor. As babies will do, he was going from toy to toy, picking each one up and at some point putting his mouth on it. I wasn’t paying close attention, but when you have a baby you’re always at a certain state of alert, so I perked up when out of the corner of my eye I saw him pick up some gnarled black thing off the floor. From where I was it looked like it could have been an old French fry or a chewed-up pen cap. Whatever it was, he picked it up and gave it a look of utter disgust, as if to say, “I can’t believe this thing even exists.” Then, with what I swear was an “Oh well,” shrug, he popped it in his mouth.

—————————–

@TheBeardedIris: I’m currently shopping for a sandblaster to remove the fossilized boy urine from the wainscoting of my powder room. Is he impersonating a fire hose in there? What. The. Hell?

—————————–

@FatherWithTwins: I know the sound is coming. No matter how many controls and countermeasures I put into place, its coming. No matter how many warnings I give my children, it’s coming. I can spend all night with them, but if I leave the room for 30 seconds to use the bathroom or start the bath–CRASH!–over goes the toy box.

At that point, I’m faced with two options: 1) Force them to clean it up, which will take about three hours, or 2) Clean it up myself. I usually choose option two and have a relaxing evening of stepping on the small pieces I missed or pulling them out of the dog’s mouth.

@TheAlexNevil: What’s surprising is that something with a relatively few parts should be this much of a problem. A should attach to B. A SHOULD #%*£!@-ING ATTACH TO B!! A rubber mallet shouldn’t be required to convince A and B they’d make a really great couple. The joy one expects to get from putting a child’s gift together is replaced by unintelligible rantings of a deranged lunatic. It’s during this time there’s a realization: either I will break this beast or it will break me.

—————————–

@qwertygirl: I volunteered to help organize an event at the school. The woman who ran the committee missed four of the first five meetings without notifying us, insisted that we use her friends and relatives as vendors, and accused the PTO president (not me) of micro-managing everyone when she finally attended a meeting and took some notes on her iPad. The committee head didn’t understand why I dropped off the committee, and sent me an email, cc’ing every other committee member, asking me to justify myself. She was shocked when I refused to reply.

@maughammom: The habit of kissing my kids’ boo-boos has backfired on me more than once. I probably should’ve stopped after the first time my son made me kiss a scrape on his stinky foot. But when my sweet daughter came at me with a distressed look on her face and her finger in the air, my mom-instincts took over and I kissed it. She looked so confused …

A Guy Secretly Recorded An Argument With His Parents In 1985; Some Genius Has Now Animated It

For 16 years, from the age of 12 to 28, Mike Cohen secretly recorded his interactions with his parents. Years later, Cohen’s friend, Rodd Perry, decided to take one of these vintage recordings and animate it.

The result is pure gold.

In the video above, which has racked up more than 230,000 views this week, watch the drama unfold when Cohen’s parents walk into his room and give him an earful. The audio in the clip is said to have been recorded in 1985, during one of Cohen’s visits home during college.

In a post on Reddit this week, Perry explained that the video was his “first attempt” at animation. He said he used both Photoshop and Final Cut to create the viral clip.

7 Ways for Parents to Stay Calm, Cool and Connected

“I believe the children are our future.
Teach them well and let them lead the way.”

George Benson recorded the first version of The Greatest Love of All in 1977. Whitney Houston topped the charts with her version, released in February 1985 – thirty years ago.

Despite being one of the all-time greatest hits, the message hasn’t exactly sunk in. With this week’s 2015 Grammy Awards honoring singers and songwriters, what can we say about a top hit’s staying power?

The American Psychological Association (APA) has been tracking the issue of stress with an annual report series, Stress in America™. The upshot: We have a stressed out parenting culture. The most recent report, Paying with Our Health, paints an interesting paradox. American adults are reporting less stress today than in 2007. Yet, parents with children under the age of 18 and younger generations are reporting the reverse. Compared to non-parents, parents are more stressed out; especially about money, family responsibilities and housing costs (See full report).

I could have easily been one of these survey respondents. With a teenager in high-school prepping for college and another daughter two years behind, I feel the pain.

What stress symptoms do parents report? Irritability or anger, being nervous or anxious, feeling overwhelmed, losing patience with children, and lying awake at night. Check – all of the above.

Not surprisingly, stressed parents are more likely to have worse lifestyle habits than non-parents. Eating poorly, skipping meals, less physical activity, and a greater likelihood of drinking alcohol and smoking are some of the usual suspects.

Furthermore, about one in four parents say they don’t have emotional support. This is especially so for women than men. According to the APA survey, they also feel more depressed. It’s a viscous cycle. Other surveys have indicated that the most stressful phases for parents are when children are toddlers and when they are teenagers. But we made a choice way back when, didn’t we?

“Everybody searching for a hero.
People need someone to look up to.”

Last year a similar APA survey was released on teens and stress, which was more startling and bears repeating. (APA 2014, Stress in America™, Are Teens Adopting Adults’ Stress Habits?) It appears our teenagers are experiencing stress at the same level as adults. Where are the heroes?

Many American teens report experiencing stress at unhealthy levels, appear uncertain in their stress management techniques, and experience symptoms of stress in numbers that mirrors adults’ experiences (APA, 2014).

Teens are more stressed out during the school year – which is most of the year – and they say their stress levels exceed what they believe to be healthy (see infographic). Yet, teenagers are less aware of the impact of stress on their physical and emotional health or what to do about it. They don’t seem to make a mind-body connection, i.e., that lack of sleep, irritability, feeling depressed, headaches, and poor lifestyle habits might be associated with stress.

Only a small number of teens engage in stress management techniques like physical activity. Further, girls seem to be following the stress patterns observed among adult women who consistently report more stress than men. Girls report more consequences of stress than boys, including changes in appetite and diet. Girls also report feeling greater social pressure to be a certain way, find their appearance to be a big source of stress, and are more likely to feel badly when comparing self to others on social media. Of course, it’s hard to say whether girls feel more comfortable in reporting stress than boys. If so, we need another way to ask boys about how they experience stress.

Stress and Teens

But if parents are stressed out, the likelihood is that their kids are, too. Teens are less mature, more likely to engage in trial and error to solve problems, and they don’t have a life history to gain some perspective. Is there a sliver lining? Yes, there is a mound of research that shows that emotional support, resilience skills, healthy lifestyle habits, mindfulness and stress management techniques work; not only that, these skills can positively influence the mind-body connection in ways we didn’t imagine before.

Here are seven ways for parents to be heroes.

  1. Be Present. Mindfulness is the practice of being in the present moment with a non-judgmental attitude. It’s very easy to judge our kids or a situation before even having a conversation with them. Sit tight. Focus on your breathing. Slow down your inner chatter so you can listen and think clearly.
  2. Have Faith. Parents are highly influenced by an anxiety ridden, fear-based culture in which we can never do enough or be enough for our kids. Cultivating trust and faith that our children will be okay happens when we believe things will work out.
  3. Zoom Out. We may remember that we survived our adolescence (and thank God we did). Being able to stand outside of a situation with your teen and look at the bigger picture allows some space to take in other possibilities and perspectives on a challenging situation.
  4. Avoid Competitive Parents. Just as our kids rate and rank, parents do too. Stay clear of parents who compare their kids to yours or anyone else’s. You know who I’m talking about.
  5. Get Support. Find parents who are empathic and can take the time to listen to your concerns. Find people who might know more than you do and have your family’s best interest at heart. We often don’t know what it is we don’t know about parenting, teenagers or the latest youth trends. Experts can help.
  6. Have Fun. Engage with your kids and do things together that are not only fun, but also serve to model healthy lifestyle habits; like physical activity, cooking healthy meals together, relaxing and acknowledging the things that went well in a day.
  7. Cultivate Self-Compassion. When it comes down to it, kids absorb the subtle ways parents engage in the world. This includes how you treat and think about yourself. If you want your children to feel worthy of love, you need to feel it first. If any message sticks, let it be this:

“Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all.”

Of Course Mindy Kaling Has Perfect Outfit Ideas for Meeting His Parents Over Thanksgiving

Have holiday plans that include a big, important, nerve-inducing introduction to, say, the parents of the guy you’ve been dating for the last six months or so? It’s a stressful situation always, but doing it over a high-performance meal like Thanksgiving makes it even more intimidating. Enter Mindy Kaling (and Mindy Lahiri), master of the colorful, fashion-forward, parent-appropriate outfit. Take a cue from her before packing your suitcase and go into the hellos with confidence.

#1. A Cocktail Dress Layered Over a Button-Up

A photo posted by Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) on

Have a flirty dress that completely broadcasts “This is who I am, world”? Those are the pieces in our closet that typically give us the most confidence, but skinny straps or a curve-hugging cut don’t always jump out as the most appropriate when making a first impression on future in-laws. I love this styling trick: put a classic button-up under it to instantly make it feel more professional. The added layer gives you an extra bit of warmth, too, if you’re holidaying somewhere cold.

#2. A Wrap Dress

A photo posted by Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) on

There’s a reason the wrap dress is such a classic—it’s flattering on all body types. The easy style strikes the perfect note between dressed up but not overly so, a major check in its pro column if you’re not sure whether his family goes casual or not for the big meal. If you’re busty, avoid over exposure by wearing with a thin camisole.

#3. One Bold Accessory

A photo posted by Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) on

Whether you’re sticking with a safe and simple LBD or dressing for a casual get-together, let some personality shine through via a bold accessory (I love Mindy’s orangey red pair heels). It’ll make for a great conversation starter if his mom’s super into fashion and, if not, it’ll make you smile every time you catch a glimpse. Win-win.

#4. A Statement Coat

A photo posted by Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) on

Career expert Nicole Williams told me we have under three seconds to make a first impression, so think about this: If you’ll first be greeting your love’s parents after walking in from the outside or in the parking lot of a restaurant, they’ll see whatever coat you have on, not the carefully selected outfit you’ve got on underneath. Consider leaving your warm, down-filled puffer at home and pull on something more tailored instead.

#5. Matching Monochrome

A photo posted by Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) on

If you don’t want to do all black or navy but a bold print feels too risky, consider something in between. The monochrome look is chic no matter what shade you select, and a bright brings in a whole lot of personality. To experiment with a pattern, try a graphic windowpane.

Are you meeting your love’s parents for the first time this holiday season? Do you remember what you wore the first time you did? I was getting ready for a 7-hour car ride before I met my in-laws, so I bet I was in jeans…
