How Your Brain Can Get You into Trouble

How Your Brain Can Get You into Trouble

Your brain is an amazing organ. It operates all the time, making sense of the world around you. Without your trying, your brain continuously sorts through the stream of impressions it receives from your various senses, and pieces together meaningful information from all this data. Your brain continuously interprets what you see and hear—and it does so largely without your awareness. (Bear with me for a few seconds. You'll see how this all creates a hidden danger for you on every section of the SAT shortly.)

Setting Rules and Limits for Your Stepfamily

I Kid You Not!

What's the difference between family values, family rules, and limits?

Talking to Your Preschooler About Death

Talking to Your Preschooler About Death

All life ends in death. But because our culture has difficulty accepting this fact, death has become an unspeakable terror.

Perhaps due to our own fears, speaking to preschoolers about death is an even greater taboo today than talking about sex. Adults try to justify their reticence by arguing that because young children can't possibly understand death, parents should spare their preschoolers the burden of thinking about it.

ADD: The Game Plan

As a former high school coach, I couldn't leave you without a game plan. Your opponent is attention deficit disorder. Because ADD can attack and impact on your child's life in a variety of ways, I've provided assessment tools to help you determine the best game plan (or plans) for your child. ADD affects children and adults in six areas, so I've designed defenses for each of them.
