Facebook — and social media in general– is clearly a sensitive landmine for many. If it wasn’t, we wouldn’t have so many unanimous Facebook transgresses and digital fight outbreaks, as well as addictions. But despite whatever awkwardness might assume your social media browsing, let us hope the happenings on digital mediums wouldn’t transcend actual dissolutions of unions or relationships. To one guy’s ex-wife, however, not being Facebook besties would hit harder than their divorce — so he estimates. More

Times are hard for those who stay up all night handwringing over the thought of LGBTQ folks marrying. Please let it be sleeplessness and utter desperation that compelled Representative Phil Gingrey from Georgia to say that kids these days need to be conditioned into traditional gender roles by way of a Traditional Gender Roles Class. Desperate times call for increasingly desperate measures, I guess. More
Iâ€™m actually quite proud of myself for not allowing my feelings to get (too) hurt. I know my son loves me. I just think he loves his father more (at least right now). Happy Father’s Day, I guess. More
In yet another one of the stellar parenting/co-parenting decisions to come out of the LeAnn Rimes Eddie Cibrian Brandi Glanville love triangle press tour, husband and wife are looking to pitch their own reality show. They’re already taking up 60 percent of the Internet and 80 percent of the tabloids. Next stop? Reality television domination. You can’t escape. More
If Halle Berry and myself had our way, we’d pack our bags and split for France. The only difference between us is that she has a hot French fiancĂ© (working on it) and an ex who isn’t about to let her take his daughter across the pond. But Halle hasn’t given up on her dreams as much as she’s adding them to the retirement plan. Way to switch it up, Halle. More
Back in 2007, we didn’t realize how good we had it. The economy was still growing. We had a little faith in our financial system. And apparently, more moms were happy to stay home with the kids, or at least work part-time. But ever since the big, bad Recession, moms are much more likely to think that full-time work is ideal. Makes sense to us. More
We’re just a few months shy of the yearÂ anniversaryÂ sinceÂ Tom and Katie divorced in the blink of a news cycle. But already into the second semester of Suri Cruise‘s first year of school, the family is doing just dandy. Like super dandy. Positive post-divorce Katie Holmes Tom Cruise update for all. More
This week on Mommyish, we had two pieces that garnered quite the moral outrage.
Lisa C. Baker, who wrote candidly about her struggle to wean her 5-year-old earned her such admittedÂ ”sanctimommyism” from one reader and many, many others. Another mother of four contributed to our Anomymous Mom column, writing that due to her family and childcare provider’s frankly awesome team efforts, sheÂ personallyÂ hasn’t changed a diaper in over six weeks. She has since been called “selfish” “aÂ narcissistÂ ” and been accused of “abusing her children,” all for enlisting the help of her spouse, her children, and her babysitter. The comments on both pieces continue to swell with far cruder comments. Yet in the two years that I’ve been with Mommyish, in which we daily cover the atrocities of pervasive rape and child abuse, said stories haven’t accumulated even a fraction of this animosity.
I’m emphatically not OK with this. More
Very rarely, unless there is some form of proven child abuse, do I come right out and call people that I don’t know personally “bad parents.” Will I call Madonna an embarrassing mom? Sure. Will I call some reality television stars exploitative moms? You bet. But saying that someone is a bad parent is a really intense statement, and I don’t think it should be made lightly. With that in mind, I’d like to say that I think Brandi Glanville, LeAnn Rimes & Eddie Cibrian are bad parents. Really bad parents. More

The argument can be made that you’ve already give him or her the biggest gift you can gave anyone anyway. (No, not a “starter marriage,” but the child for those of you still guessing.) More
Technically, the folder I keep these submissions in is called “Spousal Bashing,” but really, I don’t know if these people are married, divorced, polygamous, or what. All I know is that they’re comfortable talking trash about their child’s other parent online, with Facebook being the preferred outlet to ensure maximum public shaming. More
If youâ€™ve ever been through a divorce or separation, or know someone who has, you know you wouldnâ€™t wish that pain, much like a death, on anyone. So how can I be happy when I find out that other parents in my daughterâ€™s school are getting divorced? It sounds awful, and like I said, I donâ€™t wish divorce or the pain of getting through one on anyone. In fact, Iâ€™m actually really sad when I hear of yet another marital breakdown. But then I canâ€™t help but think, somewhat excitedly, â€śI canâ€™t wait to tell my daughter!â€ť More
It’s that time of year again. Lights are being stapled to rooftops, gift cards are being purchased by the dozens, and moms everywhere are tired already just thinking about all of the baked goods that need to be made. And if you’re a separated or divorced parent, there’s one more super fun item to add to the to-do list. You need to sit down with your ex and iron out the holiday calendar. More
