“Roommate Syndrome” – When Marriage Is in Danger

Once upon a time there was a couple who got married and lived happily ever after for the rest of their lives.... That's how any self-respecting fairy tale ends, but is real life actually like this? Statistics tell us that marriage is less and less common in the Western world – especially marriages within the Church – while the number Continue Reading




The Four Phrases You Should Never Say to a Young Child

Not all words are created equal. Some enlighten, encourage, or bring peace—while others hurt, tear down, and wound. Words have the ability to generate emotions and thoughts. The communication that is established between people solidifies or builds, in some way – whether for better or for worse – the environment in which we live. In regard to the relationship between Continue Reading




Smiling in Order to Get a Smile in Return Could This Behavior of Babies Teach Us Something?

A few days ago I happened to come across an article that talked about newborn babies’ smiles, and I discovered something I didn't know: it seems that babies smile at their parents to get them to smile back.

They pointed out its epicenter was Wuhan, Hubei, China. This was the start of what we all know by now as the Continue Reading




Eternal love can really last and lead to happiness

Eternal love exists, at least according to studies and research; we could say “according to science”, even if we look around and this statement may seem absurd, just a phrase for ‘incurable’ romantics, the utopia of lovers, destined to vanish sooner or later. Yet the exchange of vows for eternity continues to be veiled in an aura of magic, to Continue Reading




Krisenchat: the chat app that provides psychological support to children and adolescents

Chat rooms or applications – often associated with traps, “addiction”, and fleeting relationships – can sometimes be valuable, helpful tools. We could say, referring to a famous proverb, that not all social networks are a bad. We often dwell on the negative effects that hyper-connection has on our lives and, in particular, on the youngest, the most fragile, and less Continue Reading
