    'After adjustment for demographic and socioeconomic factors, the group most likely to attend selective colleges were students in male breadwinner-female homemaker families.'Teens whose mothers worked part-time or not outside the home were significantly more likely to be admitted to and attend a highly selective college or university than teens whose mothers worked full time, finds a study out today from the Institute for Family Studies.

    Pregnant women get lots of ads and advice, but I bet that almost none of the people making all the other lists have as much pregnancy practice as I do. Pregnant women get lots of ads and advice, but I bet very few of those giving it have as much pregnancy practice as I do. While our family of eight is a pretty normal size by historical standards and on other continents, itÂ’s not among comparatively much more wealthy Americans. That means I have almost surely had more babies than any of your friends or any other internet writer recommending...

    A Florida man with extensive full-body tattoos who allegedly drugged, abducted and sexually battered a woman in a run-down camper earlier this year has been arrested, the local sheriff announced Thursday. Efthimios Michael Zachary Mikedis, also known as Zak, a 28-year-old from Ocklawaha, allegedly attacked the victim with an accomplice on Jan. 5. When the victim regained consciousness, Mikedis allegedly burned her hair with a cigarette and held a pair of scissors to her throat before beating her, dragging her to a waiting car and eventually letting her go at a Winn-Dixie parking lot.

    As the Chief Executive Officer of a group with 200 employees, as well as a suburban mother and American, my views may be outside the mainstream – or central to what most Americans think. At heart, seven principles guide me now. I share them here. Gratitude. First, as an American, I am grateful for President Trump’s hands-on, all-in, make-it-happen leadership. I am comfortable with his seasoned team of doctors, policy experts, economic minds and industry leaders, especially Dr. Deborah Birx and Dr. Anthony Fauci. I am pleased an able vice president – and former governor – is at the apex....

    * Swedish woman, 45, was dating teenage Afghan migrant living in her care * Abdul Dostmohammadi, now 19, sexually molested her 12-year-old daughter * Mother refused to report as she was worried he'd be sent to Afghanistan An Afghan migrant who molested a 12-year-old Swedish girl was initially not reported to police - because her mother was dating him. Abdul Dostmohammadi, 18, was living with his 45-year-old girlfriend in Sölvesborg, southern Sweden, when he sexually molested the 12-year-old. When the girl told her what had happened, the mother refused to report him to police as she feared he would be...

His 20 year-old mother Rhionna Nichols, 20, was charged with his murder Monday and is due to appear in court this afternoon. She also faces counts of torture and first-degree child...

    On Friday, ITV news released a clip from an upcoming documentary which showed Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, holding back tears as she acknowledged the challenges she's faced as a newlywed and mother in the spotlight. "Thank you for asking. Not many people have asked if I'm OK, but it's a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes," she said, before confirming, in the words of her interviewer, that she "isn't really OK." It's no surprise that Meghan is struggling. Our society's lack of concern for the well-being of new moms is terribly disturbing — and it's even...

    "The open practice of killing then cuddling does not simply represent a ghastly declaration that children are both fully human and disposable. It signifies a war against the mother-child bond."The infamous abortionist LeRoy Carhart invites women to cuddle with their freshly killed babies. His clinic also offers them take-home keepsakes such as photographs and footprints of their child.Carhart specializes in third-trimester abortions, those done when the baby is approximately 24 weeks of gestation and older. You may recall that he was at the center of the debate on partial-birth abortion when the Supreme Court ruled in his favor in 2000....

    When Gina Rouse graduated as a nurse from the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga in 2003, she intended to keep training like she did as a college runner. “I got the night shift in my first job as a nurse,” Rouse, who now lives in Knoxville, Tennessee, told Runner’s World. “I was working from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., and still trying to run twice a day before and after the shift. I definitely cut corners on sleep.” Rouse soon realized that her new schedule made it impossible to keep training the way she did in college. So throughout most of her...
  • Turning Women Into “Gestators” Is the Way to Abolish Motherhood

    The present manifestations of feminism are mere phases of a process that seeks the annihilation of women. It seems a contradiction. Feminism claims to glorify women and their accomplishments. Women’s Studies departments worldwide are supposedly dedicated to the study of women’s achievements and the denouncing of the “oppression” they have suffered over the ages. However, avant-garde feminists reveal the true nature of their nihilistic creed. They desire the destruction of all that was once considered to be female. They claim the feminine ideal is a social construct that inhibits and restrains women from being whatever they want to be. Central...

Nisaika frantically dug up the 5.2-lbs baby and took him to the hospital where doctors said the infant hadn't suffered any serious injuries. Nisaika says everyone in the village is amazed by Ping Pong's actions and says "he is a...

    White Double of the Second Class IN THE SIXTEENTH CENTURY, even amidst their many divergences, the so-called Reformers agreed in utterly rejecting all the honors paid by the Catholic Church to the Blessed Virgin Mary, on the grounds that such veneration of the Mother detracted from the supreme worship due to her Divine Son. Four centuries have more than sufficed to show the result of so doing: the Son has followed the Mother! The descendants of those who refused to Mary the title and rights of Theotokos,—Mother of God—refuse to Jesus the title of Son of God in the...

    SALT LAKE CITY — American women might be waiting longer to have kids. But according to a new report, more women are having children than a decade ago. A new Pew Research Center report found that the share of American women who have given birth was higher in 2016 than it was 10 years ago. In fact, 86 percent of women from 40 to 44 years old said they were mothers, compared to 80 percent who said the same in 2016. The number is similar to what it was back in the 1990s.

    A leading psychotherapist in New York City in the last 25 years has warned that mothers who return to work too soon after having babies are damaging their children’s mental health. In a video for the New York Post, Erica Komisar revealed how she’s seen an ‘epidemic level of mental disorders in very young children,’ which she puts down to the “devaluing of mothering in society.” The author of Being There, Why Prioritizing Motherhood in the First Three Years Matters explained that babies experience a rush of cortisol and a great deal of stress when they’re away from their mothers....
