It’s the age old question that has been pondered for thousands of years before us.
Today’s generation is lucky to have the new resource, Who Am I?, a self-discovery book for parent and child.
New author Jasmine Bharucha has penned the perfect book for families hoping to reconnect with one another and lessen the levels of household anxiety and stress.
Growing up in Mumbai, India, the author-singer would often ask questions about why some children lived in such dire poverty and she didn’t. Jasmine’s journey of self-reflection led her to write her first children’s book, Who Am I?, which presents simple concepts for children – and adults – to better understand themselves and their connection to the world around them.
HerScoop was lucky enough to meet up with Jasmine, go through the book together, and review it with our kids.
HerScoop gives an exclusive peek inside this fabulous new resource for parents and kids on our YouTube channel.
In honor of World AIDS Day today (December 1, 2014), Prince Harry is encouraging all of us to share our secrets in the #FeelNoShame online movement.
“Today, World AIDS Day, my secret is, believe it or not, I get incredibly nervous before public speaking, no matter how big the crowd or the audience,” the royal redhead confessed in a new video for Sentebale.
There’s nothing quite like going to university for several years, only to completely change careers after graduating and working in the field.
That’s exactly what happened to Steve Neufeld, now a Canadian filmmaker. The British Columbia father-of-one was a high school teacher for seven years, but found it emotionally taxing, and also wanted to pursue his dream of writing for film and TV.
Although he is no longer working as a teacher, Neufeld is exploring his passion for education in the new web series, Coded.
Thanks to Storyhive, a Telus initiative, Neufeld has submitted a promotional video for Coded to received one of fifteen bursaries of $10,000 to make the pilot. And he needs your vote! In the spring, those 15 episodes will go online and once again, the public will vote. The winning project will receive $50 000 to produce more web series episodes.
“The idea for this show came to me while I was teaching in Alberta several years ago,” Neufeld tells HerScoop exclusively. “I don’t think anybody who teaches, and takes that vocation seriously, can avoid the constant conflict between meeting the needs of students and maintaining a healthy personal life.”
Is it difficult for you to discuss the birds and the bees with your children?
What do you tell your kids when it comes to body parts? Is it all about the hoohas and dingalings? Or do you use the proper terminology when describing private parts?
And while we’re discussing uncomfortable topics, what do you tell your kids about how babies get into mommy’s tummies? Do you tell the truth, or do you avoid science/facts and sugar-coat the truth?
HerScoop is chatting about these potentially embarrassing parenting milestones on our new YouTube channel.
Here’s a few of our thoughts on the matter. Find out what my own mom told me, how I plan to address these topics with my children, and hear how the truth can actually empower kids and open the door for future discussions in the years to come.

Guess who’s making headlines this holiday season?
No, Angelina Jolie doesn’t have a seventh child on the way. And girl, I’m sorry to say but Ryan Gosling isn’t back on the market to kiss you under the mistletoe.
But the internet is abuzz with a certain someone who dresses in a red bodysuit and pointy hat. That’s right, “the Elf on the Shelf” is causing concern during this season of joy.
We’ve seen him all over our Facebook news feed. And even some of our favorite celebrities are joining in on the fun. Actress Ali Landry posted a playful shot via Instagram of the Elf tangled in the milk jug for her daughter Estela.
So what seems to be the problem with the lil’ guy?
