Ah, relationships: both the bitter and sweet of life, am I right? The category of Relationships features articles to guide you through every relationship of life — the difficult and delightful  — as well as how to navigate relationships with in-laws, grandparents, friendships, marriage, ex-spouses, kids, teens, and more. 

Fort Worth Moms publishes original, personal stories and advice from local moms, as well as relevant and fun information for those of us in the trenches of parenthood. 

Every article published via Fort Worth Moms — whether someone from our in-house team, a guest writer, or a sponsored writer — uses their words to reflect their own opinions, experiences, and beliefs. No singular post or collection of posts represents the opinions, beliefs, or agenda of Fort Worth Moms.

My husband has been traveling for work since before I was pregnant with our first daughter. He's traveled during pregnancies, during the newborn stage and continues to travel during our now busy life with 2 little ladies. During it...
I knew that, for whatever reason, she was becoming a bully to others. I knew that somehow it had to stop -- and stop now. I knew if I did not address this now, it would get worse the older she became. I knew I could not deny this problem. I knew I could not protect her because she was the one in the wrong. And I knew I needed to do this in the most loving and caring way.

As far as Grandparent's Day goes this year, my family is celebrating a little differently. We will continue to connect with my grandparents in ways that have worked for us during the pandemic.  Not only have these ideas encouraged and helped pass the time for my grandparents, but also have helped my children. 
I have been fortunate enough to develop deep friendships with women from all over the world and they have not only taught me about their lives and cultures, but they have also shown me how to be a better friend and mom.
It took me a long time to use the word abuse. It felt like such a severe word for an occasional behavior. Even once I started to name the behavior, it still felt strong on my tongue, like maybe I was making it up or exaggerating things in my mind.
It's not ideal to live so far away, but putting forth even the smallest effort will keep your family feeling connected.
