An Interview With Stephanie Coontz
Omega: You say marriage has changed more in the past 30 years than in the past 3,000 years and that the very traits that make marriage in our contemporary society more rewarding have also made it less stable. How so? More

This is what the great choice comes down to—the great conflict between first-hand experience and tradition, between spontaneity and decorum, between compassion and obligation. Other life forms have no part in this. It’s strictly a human affair. The sapling doesn’t look to its elders for approval. It just grows toward the light. The bee feels its hunger and finds its honey. It doesn’t embark out of any sense of duty. When I speak of these things, distrustful minds, against all intention of getting involved, blurt out but we have to live in the real world. More

Children’s book writer Dr. Seuss wrote, “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” In children’s health, we have a lot of questions about what has gone wrong.

The support that is most helpful when we are in an emotionally charged state comes from other people empathizing with our situation and showing they care. This validation of our experience can then give us the courage we need to face the issue for ourselves. Imagine that you are walking alone in the dark. Perhaps it is on a dark street, in a dark room or hallway, or out on a trail at night, and you likely feel some discomfort or fear.  More

Why Everyone Should Have a 16-Year-Old Boss
I love being a part of Rookie magazine. I love that it is an inherently and unapologetically feminist publication, but also operates on the premise that it’s there for girls and young women in creating a space that celebrates instead of stigmatizes young girlhood, which so many other things and some other media outlets do.

This morning, like every morning, I sat cross-legged on a cushion on the floor, rested my hands on my knees, closed my eyes, and did nothing but breathe for 20 minutes.
