A Story About Having the Sex Talk

By Every Family's Got One Founder -- Barbara Herel Photo by Rawpixel Oh, the sex talk... I started talking to my daughter about S-E-X when she was young – one-year-old young. It went like something like this. Every time I saw... a pregnant woman, I would say, “Oh look! That woman has a baby growing in her belly. Isn’t that interesting? Babies grow in a woman’s belly.” I’m a fan of using anatomically correct words. Besides loving... the downright disgusted reactions of the older generation whenever my two-year-old daughter said “vagina,” I wanted to make certain there [...]

A Story about Love and Lies at a Jewish Dance

By Every Family's Got One Founder -- Barbara Herel My grandma Yetta and grandpa Frank met at that highly respectable place where many a young Jewish girl met a nice Jewish boy back in the day – at a dance at the Jewish Community center. Only problem was, Frank wasn’t Jewish. This piece of pertinent information came to light only after Yetta and Frank had become smitten with each other. Furthermore, this scandalous news was divulged to the last person on earth a young woman would want this knowledge revealed to – her father. Yetta’s father... Joseph, a “Butter and Egg” [...]

Now, I don’t remember... ever falling out of a car as a child. There is no family lore. No charmingly hilarious story about the time Barbara fell out of a car and landed on top of her head on, say, Stuart Avenue. But I’ve had this car [...]
