    Incontrovertible Truths: Teaching our Children Their Confederate History

    in Moms and Family

    Living in the south, with all its charms, traditions and iconography does not offer access into certain aspects of her history, especially when that history involves discussions around the Civil War and the Confederacy. The inability to rake through the smoldering ashes of a war fought 150 years ago, allows for a one-sided narrative that sometimes misrepresents the causes for war, the people - enslaved and free - who lived through the war and and its aftermath. Although it is a necessary, and some might add, long overdue undertaking, it is also anxiety ridden, especially within the black community.


    How can parents of color approach this subject and explain to their children a war fought over, among other things, a system of that relegated their ancestors to permanent servitude?


    Today, the Mommy Chronicles is on site as the Alabama State University Department of History and Political Science explores those issues by examining the Civil War history at its first Confederate Memorial Day "Mini" Conference.

    Tapping Your Inner Chef: Simple Meal Planning and Prep Ideas for Busy Families

    in Moms and Family

    What's for dinner? If you're like your hosts, that's an inconvenient question that’s batted around quite a bit in your home.


    Apparently, we're not alone! According to "Food Genius" founder Justin Massa during a recent National Public Radio interview, "…70 to 80% of Americans do not know what we're going to have for dinner at 4:00 p.m."


    The company, which analyzes data for the food industry, is just one resource grocers nationwide are using to fill the dinner gap for busy families, only today, the offerings are taking a turn towards a seemingly healthier trend. Keep in mind, convenience comes at a price! And another thing, do we really want big-box-grocers and other food engineers making decisions that were once the domain of the family cook? Hardly!


    Local chef and restaurant owner Davena Jernigan offers time saving tips from her treasure trove of food wisdom - tips that'll take the anxiety out of meal planning and inspire families to look no further than their own pantries for answers.


    So, what are you gonna do Monday morning? Listen to the Mommy Chronicles of course, ‘cause you know this show is just what you’ve been waiting for!

    Earth Month Series – Preserving the Planet is a Family Affair: Mommy Greenest

    in Environment

    Rachel Lincoln-Sarnoff


    Ready for this tagline? "We guard the nest of the world." Mommy Greenest is rapidly becoming THE resource for healthier parenting with less judgment - because the founder and our guest, Rachel, believes you shouldn't have to be a scientist to raise healthy kids. Rachel brings quite a bit to the credibility table in this arena. She is the former CEO of Healthy Child Healthy World, was editor of Children magazine and then had three children of her own. She who does not sleep is also the designer of Bird in Hand upcycled accessories and author of The Big List of Things That Suck. Rachel was featured in Los Angeles and Lucky magazines and has appeared on "The Today Show" and "CNN Headline News," among others. Rachel is actually a repeat guest and I  am proud to interview her about her finest role ever - so far. This show sponsored by Goodwill Industries of Southern Arizona.
