The Royal Prince Who Acted Like An American

Like the rest of the world, I am still reeling from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s shocking announcement on January 8 that they are distancing themselves from Britain’s royal family. Well, like the rest of the world except for those in Australia, Puerto Rico, and places plagued with actual problems. I’m definitely reveling in the deliciousness of watching a real-life ...

Wrongful Birth Lawsuits Are Morally Wrong

Becoming a parent changes our lives in ways we never could have previously imagined. Caring for a helpless newborn and watching him or her successfully grow into a toddler, then a child, and eventually an adult is one of the greatest joys a mom or dad experiences. Procreating is a reminder that there is a greater force out there beyond ...

California Lawmakers Erode Private Property Rights

Everyone wants a safe place to live, but moving into an empty house without the owner’s permission is illegal. It’s theft of private property, but this is exactly what a group of homeless people have done in Oakland, California, and some California legislators are vocally supporting them.

Insight Into Why Mothers Kill Their Babies

An article recently published on Conservative Mom and written by Stewart L. asks the question: Why do mothers kill their babies? It’s an answer we’d all like to know.

I Paid My Kids To Get Along

When Christmas break started, I dreaded having my first grader at home all day. I enjoy spending time with her, but she and her next-youngest brother fight all day long. They also bicker, squabble, and scrap. They yell “No, it was my turn!” when playing board games. When it’s time to watch a movie, the child who is not holding ...

Who Is Watching The Candidates’ Kids?

More women are running for public office, but limitations on using campaign dollars for child care costs hinder their efforts. As of 2018, campaign funds can only be used to pay for these costs of running for federal offices. Six states have passed laws that allow the money to go to child care; most states leave the issue open to ...

Sex Shouldn’t Be This Hard

A person is determined to be male or female while in the fetal stage, during the first trimester of gestation. Sex is decided, without the person’s input, long before he or she becomes a fully formed human being. Once that person is born, their genitalia make it visibly evident whether they are male or female. “Gender” used to be interchangeable ...

The Swamp is Unlikely to be Drained

I didn’t admit it to many of my hardcore Republican friends, but I thought Trump was in the wrong regarding his conversations with the Ukranian President. Not that we talk politics a whole lot; SAHMs in their thirties tend to chat more about our kids’ sleeping habits, our husband’s new jobs, and household budgeting tips than what just happened in ...

I’m Glad The Holidays Are Over

I love the holidays. October through December is my absolute favorite time of year. I love the cooler weather and shorter days. Attending harvest festivals, exchanging sentiments of thankfulness, and wrapping presents for everyone I know is totally right up my alley. I love seeing everyone’s smiling, pajama-clad photos around the Christmas tree on Facebook, too. I even posted one ...
