Falmouth single mom, entrepreneur relies on passion, perseverance

Kosinchuk got the idea for Miss Moonmaker after her son was born. At that time, she said, “I immediately became more mindful of the things we ate and the products that we used.”

That caused her to take “a look around my household and I realized that 90 percent of what I was using was chemical-based and filled with potentially harmful ingredients; (ones) I could not even spell.”

’20th Century Women’ a wise, empathetic comedy

That’s the heart of “20th Century Women,” an unusually compassionate comedy about a generational divide between parent and child, particularly between a mother and a son. As with his previous film, the Oscar-winning “Beginners,”

Single dad is a sex symbol. Single mother is an unfortunate woman.

On the whole, you understand, house-husbandry isn’t considered a guy thing, and it takes an unusually strong-minded man to buck the trend. It is interesting that most accounts of alpha-women acknowledge the sterling support of their husbands, though few took really radical, career-sacrificing decisions for their wives.

Last year, one book on Indian women achievers advised young women to choose their husbands carefully for precisely this reason. More to the point, young women should embrace the concept of stay-at-home husbands too.

Single, childless and nearing 40, I saw one real option

I am a single mother by choice. Yet I was raised in a Christian, conservative home, where I grew up believing in the traditional family unit. And I was taught that there was an order to achieving it. First, fall in love.
Second, marry a man. Third, start a family.
Now in my fifth decade, only one has proven true for me — and it isn’t the first.
