When it comes to keeping the lines of communication open after a divorce, West Virginia University researchers Jonathon Beckmeyer and Jessica Troilo say you can have far too much of a good thing.

Their study of 708 divorced parents of children under 18 shows that even innocuous chitchat between divorced co-parents can put children's well-being at risk. Simply put, "limit any communication to shared parenting issues," the researchers suggest.

Children learn on their own through observation and experimentation. They also learn from what other people tell them, especially adults and authority figures like their parents and teachers. When children learn something surprising, they seek out additional information by asking questions or by testing claims. Prior research shows that whether children explore adults' surprising claims varies by age, with children over six years of age more likely to seek out additional information than four- and five-year-olds. However, there is limited research about why children seek information in respons...   Continue reading ››

The increased use of contraception in many countries is not because more women at any moment want to delay pregnancy or have no further children. Instead, it is because contraception is helping more women achieve their childbearing goals.

This is the overwhelming conclusion from a study of national survey data from 59 low- and middle-income countries around the world.

Touch Your Wife's Heart

  2 years ago (Thu, Aug 12, 2021 at 05:15 PM)

Don’t you sometimes, secretly, wish if the Book of Ephesians chapter 5 goes up to verse 34 and says something like: “Husbands, when your wives come to you with a problem, don’t try to SOLVE their problem unless they specifically ask for it. Just LISTEN to their heart.” (I know the Bible is complete; I’m just saying).

For a happy marriage, from the many things that are mentioned by many authors, this stands tall for me:

The husband needs to know that he has to be a psychologist, a therapist, a psychiatrist, a social worker, a pastor, a general internist, a counselor, a geographer who knows direction without any GPS, an analyst of the world as well as local news, an editor and more.

That means, in short, he needs to be

I naturally love to receive advice from people I respect the most because I saw in many instances how good advice saved my life. Going to counseling is my thing! I, long time ago, decided to myself saying: Never, ever I go through life alone! I seek counseling!

A4P: What happened?

A4P Guest: My mother-in-law is a Christian, she loves God, prays a lot and all. But she pretty much wants to be the woman of the house. She criticizes my cooking, the way I handle my son and more. Her intention might be good but her action irritates me so much that I sometimes lock myself up in my bedroom for the whole day. I feel like leavi...   Continue reading ››

How Can I change My Husband?

  2 years ago (Thu, Aug 05, 2021 at 11:03 AM)

Early on in my marriage, my first mission as a wife was to change my husband.


I first wanted to make him love reading books, other than the books he reads for his work and the Bible. I mean, think about it. I can’t live without reading books but I married a man who lives happily ever after without reading books. So, I set out to change him, to teach him how to fall asleep reading good spiritual books.

So, I read one good marriage book (I am not sure which one) and I told my husband how the author talked about husbands and how much he, my husband, could learn from the book...   Continue reading ››

He Won't Propose

  2 years ago (Sat, Jul 31, 2021 at 01:47 PM)

Some young girls get confused why their boyfriends don't propose to them even after dating them for a year or two.

They complain, "I thought he was waiting for the Valentine's Day but that day just passed; and I thought he would propose to me in the beginning of summer but that too passed. What should I need to do?"

I always ask:

"Why don't you propose to him?" :) Just kidding! - I wouldn't say that in a million years! What? A woman proposing to a man? Are you serious? Listen what the Bible says:

"My Husband Watches Movies"

  2 years ago (Sun, Jul 18, 2021 at 09:59 AM)

A4P Guest: I came to the US a year ago from Ethiopia. My husband grew up here in the US. He came to Ethiopia to marry me. After I came to the US, life has been tough for me mainly because my husband only wants to watch movies. He works full-time but whenever he is home, he only enjoys watching movies. I want us to pray or read the Bible together. If I start talking about anything spiritual, he is not interested to listen. So, we now fight more than we love and spent time together in peace. I am very scared with my life. What do you advise me?

Love: How the feeling of power determines happy relationships

Want to have a happy relationship? Make sure both partners feel they can decide on issues that are important to them. Objective power measured by income, for example, doesn't seem to play a big role, according to a new study in the "Journal of Social and Personal relationships" by the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) and the University of Bamberg. Instead, how lovers perceive power dynamics in their relationship is most important for relationship satisfaction. 

How Can I Stop

“So, how can I stop watching porn?”

This is a wrong question because the questioner seems to miss something very crucial, i.e. to ask what they need to start doing to stop watching porn.

You see, we can’t pursue two things at the same time as we can’t do two things at the same time.

But right after the wedding, I realized that all the spiritual things I thought he had were nothing but fake. I now don’t even think that he is a believer in Christ. He is addicted to all sorts of Internet filthy stuff and he has no plan to deal with it. As he told me, he became addicted to this thing ten years ago. Had I known about this while we were dating, I wouldn’t have married him but there was no way for me to know that. And he didn’t tell me even if...   Continue reading ››

Men usually don’t understand “German.” They only understand straight talk, like,

Wife: “Hun, do you want a cup of tea?”

Husband: Yes, I do.

Wife: “Babe, would you please take the trash out?”

Husband: “I will. Just give me a second.”

This is called talking directly to a man’s brain, or, speaking to him in a language he can understand.

On the other hand, if a wife decides to speak to her husband in “German,” she tricks her husband’s brain (very important point to note):

Wife: “Our...   Continue reading ››

It is impossible to fight against porn alone.

You always lose!

You see, darkness loves secrecy, loneliness! And when you invite another person to join you in your fight against porn, it is like saying “Yes” to light to shine on the dark area of your life.

If you are in Christ, you desire to run away from darkness. And when darkness tries to make its abode in your soul, you partner with another believer so the darkness loses its power on you.

Why do marriages fall apart when a special need child comes to a family?

Many, many reasons but one of the major and common reasons is the fact that men and women are created differently.

I know; that reason again, right?

But it is true. Men and women are created equally but differently. When a special need child comes to a family, a father and a mother handle the situation differently and that difference creates stress, disagreement and conflict that can lead to a divorce.

Why? I love to look at myself! I don’t think it is sinful for a woman to look at herself in the mirror to take care of herself; to keep herself neat, clean and beautiful. My husband is my number one motivator to take care of myself because he compliments me. I mean after all, I’m his bride; I’m his crown (Proverbs 12:4); I’m his glory (1 Corinthians 11:7).

It is wonderful to see couples tying the knot to be one, never to be two.

As a married person and a teacher in the area of sexual purity, I can’t tell you how I rejoice whenever I see a wedding.

Yes, the Bible says that marriage protects us from being soaked in sexual immorality (1 Corinthians 7). What a joy then to see someone escaping such a “ruthless tyrant” as sexual immorality!

A4P Guest: Can you give us evidence why masturbation is wrong? When it’s been said that between 95 and 98 percent of young men are engaged in masturbation and the rest lie about it, don’t we add burden of guilt on men when we say masturbation is a sin?

A4P: Before I say anything, let me say this: “Burden of guilt” - guilt feeling, feeling sorrowful about what we do/did is a God-given emotion; it always leads to repentance when its source is the Holy Spirit.

A Prophet Told Me

No one can fight against sin unless they are born of God.

“I will stop viewing porn,” is a good decision but the question is, can you put that decision to work? Probably for few days, but not for long.

Many people want to stop watching porn. If tears could have saved a person from porn, many would have been saved from porn addiction because they have cried their eyes out, thinking that God would see their tears and say, “Okay! That is enough! I will take that desire out of you.”

Parents may fear that if their high school student isn’t motivated to do well in classes, there’s nothing that will change that.

But a new study that followed more than 1,600 students over two years found that students’ academic motivation often did change – and usually for the better.

Results showed that increasing students’ sense of “belongingness” in school was one key way of increasing academic motivation.
