Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy:

Some women feel safer taking bioidentical hormones compared to prescription hormone replacement therapy because of the belief that they have fewer side effects such as the risk of cancer; however, the scientific data is lacking.

When it comes to bioidentical hormone replacement, here are 5 myths:

 1. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a medical term. It’s just a term used by makers of BHRT but it is not recognized by the FDA. 

 2. It’s safer than traditional hormone replacement. They are not safer just because they are “natural.” There is no convincing data that bioidentical hormones are more or less safe compared to traditional hormone replacement therapy.

What Dr. Hope can say in an interview on
Gender Roles in the Old & New Workplace:

That group is what I characterize as the “mens”; it is decidedly not a typo. The mens, utilizing the definition in the Time article, are itching to get out of the “kid and home sphere” where it is clean, less sticky, where time means something (I have a meeting at 1 don’t bother me; 12:55 pm– “MOMMM, the cat threw up all over your desk!”—in this world of WFH time is fluid. Meetings are not so much scheduled as let’s put it down and I hope no one gets sick; we’ll hope for the best.

According to the recent Time magazine article, “Nobody Wants to Go Back to the Office As Much As White Men,” the men they are speaking about are the definition of boomer or near boomer age white men who enjoy a level of privilege in the corporate muckety-mucky. The last two-plus years of the men’s seeing the world of children (often still too often the domain of women and primary child caregivers).

What Dr. Loper could say on
Grades and Self-Esteem:

Consistent with Carol Dweck’s research on “growth mindset,” struggle is a normal part of development. According to John Bowlby’s Attachment Theory, struggle in the context of the approach and exploration of new experiences is the rate-limiting step to healthy human development. Further, both Bowlby and his successor in Attachment research, Mary Ainsworth, identified the relationship between a child and their “experienced others” (parents, teachers) as the fundamental ingredient required to support continued approach and exploration in the context of struggle. Put simply, outcomes such as grades are a manifestation of the process, and your child’s willingness and motivation to engage in the process, i.e. to try, try again (growth mindset) is informed by a child’s interactions with parents and teachers.
