Just about everyone has endured a few restless nights of sleep every now and then. It could be anxiety before a big test that keeps your mind spinning well after it should be in rest mode. Or maybe it's the grief from a personal loss that has you sad and distracted as you try to drift off. "It's something about being in a dark bedroom, and the mind starts going over all the problems we ...
Embarrassment - let's talk about it now and get it behind us. We've all known those times of being in the midst of mortifying or very awkward situations. No one wants to be the one to have to deal with an embarrassing issue. Today is the day ... we're going to explore how to be real and deal with sticky issues - and get through it with tact and kindness. Then we'll all exhale. We ...
Connor Bloom pounded on the drums like a young John Bonham, grinning broadly as guitarist Quinn Darrach laid down some raw, crunchy chords next to a massive amp almost his height, long bangs hanging in his eyes.
According to Beatles John Lennon and Paul McCartney, all we need is love. If that's so why did consumers spend nearly $14.7 billion dollars on Valentines Day in 2009 and despite the tight economy they are expected to spend $17.6 billion this year.
It's not a big mystery where a lot of children's dietary problems start, according to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, a nationally renowned figure on health and dieting.
"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm."
Etiquette is needed everywhere, including driving and riding in a vehicle. Being a polite and considerate driver - and passenger - also supports the safety issues of being on the road.
The man in the black and white group photograph, circa early 1900s, was a mystery. Tall and skinny, he looked a lot like Bonnie Petrovich's father. That's because it was her great-grandfather, a fact Petrovich didn't know until she dug a little deeper.
Living with Children
When I was a child, back in the Parenting Stone Age (a.k.a. the Parentocentric Era), your parents were the most important people in the family. They paid the bills, bought your clothes, prepared the food you ate, took care of you when you were sick, drove you to where you needed to be, tucked you in, and kissed you good night. They were essential.
Q: Is it okay to start teaching our 1 year old how to play independently? He screams and cries when I put him in any type of enclosure if he can't get "free" (even when I arrange the furniture in a way that he has a very ample play area). Is there a method to teach him how to play by himself for at least a little bit? It seems I am following him around ...
Q: It seems our 1 year old is showing willful disobedience. We tell him "no" and try to redirect but he does the same things over and over again. The things in question include turning over and not being cooperative when I'm trying to change him, slapping us in the face, and standing up during bath time. I'm trying to be creative with ways to entertain him and make things fun but am getting weary. Any advice on how I can correct him?
Q: Our 7-year-old son is very negative about everything. He's a middle child, so that may have something to do with it, but everyone else in the family is very happy, positive, optimistic, and so on. He never has anything positive to say about anything. Things the rest of us enjoy he says are "stupid" or "dumb." We raise all of our kids the same, so we don't understand where the negativity is coming from, ...
One of the reasons-it's probably in the top three reasons, in fact-that parents fail at solving discipline problems is they try to solve too many at once. In so doing, they scatter their disciplinary energy too thinly and end up solving none. The only thing they accomplish is getting more frustrated and more convinced that there is something about their child that renders discipline ineffective-a gene perhaps, inherited from the father (who else?), that causes ...
American parents have been listening to professional psycho-babblers tell them how to raise children since the late 1960s. I was in graduate school at the time, and my professors thought the babblers were geniuses, sent by some New Age divinity to correct all the egregious wrongs parents had done to children since time immemorial. Children were about to enter a Golden Age in which their opinions would not only be listened to but also taken ...
In the seventh grade I was promoted by my peers from president of the class geek-nerd-brainiac society to, well, if not fully cool, then at least on the way. I had discovered two sports I excelled in-golf and baseball-and the girls had discovered that I was one of the best, if not the best, dancer in the class. My classmates began overlooking the fact that I was a straight-A student, always sported a few pimples, and wore thick glasses.
While working in my secret parenting laboratory, hidden deep beneath the earth's surface and accessible only by me and a small, select team of associates, I recently made what I believe is a huge and history-making breakthrough that promises to greatly improve parenting the world over.
Q: In our city, most of the high school seniors participate in "Senior Beach Week" during spring break. They rent beach houses and condos and party like there's no tomorrow. Alcohol, marijuana, and sex abound. Our friends justify allowing their kids to go by saying they have to be trusted sometime. In truth, we all have good kids who have never given us any trouble. They just want to go and be part of the ...
Q: Our 18 month old is a table terror! While I'm preparing dinner, she walks around acting like she's starving, but as soon as we sit her in her highchair she takes a few bites and then wants down, screams, cries, and will sometimes throw food. Through all this, our 5- and 3-year-old try to talk to us but can't get a word in for all the chaos. We absolutely dread eating in a restaurant. How should we address her behavior?
