Superheroes are big with the kids these days, ok, who are we kidding, they’re big with adults too. Unfortunately, most of the more popular characters are boys/men, so who are the superheroes that the girls can look up to?
If your kids are looking for action-packed girl power, look no further than DC Super Hero Girls. DC Entertainment’s latest animated series features a dynamic group of Super Heros on their journey of discovering the power of their unique abilities and friendships. What I love is how dynamic the characters are, from strong and fearless to edgy and fun; there is a character for everyone.
Having two girls of my own, one who is super into comics and superheros I think this is a great series to show girl power and how strong females can be in this world today and in their own lives.
Check out the online experience your kids can have as well on the DC Super Hero Girls Website where your kids can play games, download free printable activities and more!
The DC Super Hero Girls YouTube channel makes it easy for kids to watch their favorite characters, on-demand, and from any device.

Having kids can be scary, I’m not talking about raising them, financially affording them or even parenting correctly. What I’m talking about is the havoc that childbirth can do on a woman’s body. It sucks, plain and simple. Would I give it all up to not have kids and have the body I had before, that functioned properly? Absolutely NOT! I love my girls, and love that I have them, but that’s the breaks, you have kids, you have some things that just don’t work quite the same anymore, and that includes your bladder.
Light bladder leakage is a huge problem for women, especially after having kids, but I’ll be honest, it’s also a problem when you’re a diabetic like me. I pee, A LOT, multiple times through the day, normally it’s more when my sugar is a bit too high, but it really doesn’t help when you already have a little bit of an issue of bladder leakage.
We travel a lot as a family, going multiple places, the last thing I want while traveling is an “oops moment” so I rely on making sure I can have a “Poise Moment” instead. Light leaks are no joke, whether I be traveling, walking or working out, the last thing I want is an unwelcomed surprise due to a cough, sneeze or just a movement. Sure, this is a personal problem, but it’s one many women have, and one we should talk about.
I make sure, that no matter what, I can go on about my everyday life without worry, thanks to Poise Pads that I can purchase at Kroger. At the gym, I don’t have to worry about running away from the issue, I can get my sweat on, and workout in without the worry of an “Oops Moment” happening to me, especially in a public place.
Light Bladder leakage didn’t just happen, in fact, it didn’t start happening to me until this year, that’s a whole 12 years after the birth of my first child, and 10 years after the birth of my 2nd. I tend to think since becoming a diabetic, and having to just go a lot more my wall broke down and said, lady, you’re lucky you went this far…. Poise has come about and has been a life saver in so many different situations.
I remember laughing at my mom, when she had this issue many years ago. She laughed too hard and BOOM, and “Oops Moment” and we (as kids of course) laughed our heads off. Thanks to Poise, my kids won’t have to endure that moment when I exclaim “shoot, I pee’d a little” because I have the discreet protection on my side.
Don’t worry about thinking everyone will know, Poise has size options for everyone, but also has the thin shaped pads which are perfect for being discreet, as well as comfortable, clean and fresh. I’ll always have an extra on hand in my bag to carry with me at all times!
Light Bladder Leakage is something that no one talks about, it’s time that we stand up as women, and help each other acknowledge that yes, it happens, you’re not the only one with that problem, and there’s a way to help. If you have bladder leakage head to your local Kroger store and check out the Poise Thin Shaped Pads that can be worn daily, while allowing you to feel confident, clean and comfortable.
You can find out more information by visiting Poise.com, Poise on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. You can also find your nearest Kroger on their Website, and also visit them on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Many of us know the name Malala Yousafzai, but what exactly do you know about the story of this 18 year old activist?
Malala campaigned for girls education in Pakistan, because of her voice and campaign she was attacked by the Taliban who shot her, and she almost lost her young life. She has since recovered and even though being shot and almost dying, she has not let this scare her into giving up. Malala continues to campaign and has become the voice for many girls and women as she gives uplifting speeches, and has even received the Nobel Peace Prize.

The film He Named Me Malala directed by Davis Guggenheim follows the life of Malala and tells her story and gives us more insight into who she is, who her family is, and her life under the Taliban.
Malala’s main influence as we find out is her father, who also campaigns for education and even has his own school in Swat Valley. Malala was named after a story of an Afghan female warrior who rallied local Pashtum fighters in the 1880s against British troops in the Battle of Mainwand. She led them to victory, but sadly was shot in the head. Since Malala was shot, her and her family have since moved to England.

Although Malala is an amazing individual and a great role model for girls and women, we find out through this film that she really is just a regular teenager who has the same issues and problems as other 18 year old girls. As any teenage girl, moving to England is a big adjustment, and her mother speaks about this during the film.
Davis Guggenheim does a great job in bringing together Malala and her namesake Afghan warrior to help us understand who she is, and how her father sees her taking up and looking as her namesake.
Malala tells us that her father only named her Malala, he did not make her Malala. She appreciates and recognizes the importance of her father and the rest of her family but takes responsibility for her own choices and life. A great message for girls to hear!
Malala’s life, and her story is incredible, and something all young girls should see this Monday February 29th as National Geographic premiers the global broadcast of He Named Me Malala at 8pm ET / 7pm CT.
About the Movie:
HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.
Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.
