We are all parents with small children. There’s no time in the day to read the paper, scan a cookbook, research new parenting skills … and do everything else we try to stay on top of everyday. We are all too busy to be believed!

That’s why I created www.MomstyleNews.com and The Momstyle News podcast. It is 5 to 10 minutes of news you can use.  Momstyle News highlights the week’s parenting news, keeps us abreast of what moms are talking about in the chat rooms, and provides parenting tips and information of real use... like quick, easy, healthy kid friendly recipes.

Things you won’t find at MomstyleNews.com or on The Momstyle News podcast: a whole bunch of celebrity gossip and pablum. This is real news you can use for busy moms.

Momstyle News helps you save time, money 'n' sanity ... and connect with other parents!

Are placebo pills good for the body, but bad for the soul?

A new sugar pill called Obecalp - placebo spelled backwards -is being launched in Britain. The idea is that children who are issued this placebo will think they are receiving medicine thereby tricking their own immune system into healing the body.

The same way it is a thrill to get a band-aid anytime they hurt. Spiderman band-aids have mysteriously potent pain-relieving powers. ...more

Playing makes kids more employable grown-ups

Just read an article called, "The Future Of Creativity : In our schools, our businesses, and our homes" The premise is that the current generation entering the workforce make relatively poor employees because they lack decision-making and leadership skills.
