Happiest Baby on the Block author Harvey Karp on The Mistakes Most Toddler Parents Make

Toddlers are cavemen. If you’re reading this and are actually parenting a toddler, you probably don’t need further explanation. You’re familiar with the grunting, the lack of table manners, the random tantrums and general refusal to express emotions in a civilized way. See? Total caveman territory. Parenting guru Harvey Karp, who wrote Happiest Toddler On the Block as a follow up to his first bestselling book, Happiest Baby on the Block, uses this comparison as the basis for his popular techniques. We spoke to Dr. Karp about the six missteps he sees parents to toddlers making—and how to correct them in order to have a happier toddler (and as a result, home/marriage/life!).  


Obsessed with Honey? So are we!

Beekeeper’s Naturals: Harnessing the Power of The Bee Hive

If you’re like us, you’ve been hearing about the benefits of honey—and more specifically, propolis—for awhile. And who isn’t always looking for ways to keep their family healthy? We spoke to Carly Stein, who created Beekeeper’s Naturals, about her new brand, which includes innovative products like throat spray, raw honey blended with hemp oil, and raw bee pollen. She shares the story behind Beekeeper’s, the benefits of propolis and more.

Did Someone Say Tacos?!

Check out this amazing Turkey Taco-Stuffed Pepper Recipe from Whole30 CEO!

Click Here for the Full Recipe as well as the link to our interview with Melissa!

Anyone else feel like they’re constantly working to find easy recipes that the whole family will not only eat, but love? Taco Tuesday is always a crowd pleaser, even in Melissa Hartwig Urban’s house. We spoke to the Whole30 CEO about her favorite spin on turkey tacos (recipe below!). Says Melissa: “Taco Tuesday is a beloved family tradition, but on the Whole30, corn tortillas, chips, and cheese are out. We’ve created a Whole30-friendly version that parents and kids alike will love. Ground meat mixed with salsa and seasoning sits in a bell pepper cup instead of a taco shell, making these “tacos” colorful and nutritious,” says Melissa. The best part? These can be easily customized, from ramping up the spice for adventurous kids or using mild salsa for younger palates, serving with a side of guacamole or pan-friend plantains and drizzling with (Whole30-approved) Tessemae‘s Buffalo, Habanero, or Cilantro-Lime Ranch.

Meet Karolina Kurkova: Supermodel Mama-Turned Entrepreneur

Over the last few decades, Karolina Kurkova has made a name for herself with a hugely successful modeling career. Her resume includes highlights such as twenty-five Vogue magazine covers, being named a Victoria’s Secret Angel and completing massive campaigns with fashion industry heavyweights like Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton. But while everyone was focused on her glamorous outward appearance, it turns out that she’s always been about what’s on the inside, rather than out. “I’ve always preferred a more natural approach to beauty and wellness—it’s not just about products,” says Kurkova, who is now a mother to two boys, ages 3 and 9.
