Goal Setting for Your College-Bound Child

College students are treated very differently than they were in high school. The entire system is geared toward making them responsible for their choices and actions.

And the school will let them know if they aren't making the grade.

They’ll (hopefully) appreciate your help, especially because you may not always be there physically if they’re dorm-living in another city come fall.

Family Planning: Timing Is Everything

Family Planning: Timing Is Everything

In our society, we are given the illusion of control about many things. We can preprogram our coffee makers to have fresh coffee in the morning, watch close to 100 cable channels on TV 24 hours a day, and zap frozen food in the microwave for a 3-minute dinner. We tend to assume that we can apply this control to everything in our lives.

School Lunch Ideas: 10 Healthy Ways to Fill Your Kids' Lunchboxes

When you're looking for school lunch ideas, it's easy to throw a handful of cheap, pre-packed lunchbox fillers into your shopping cart and call it a week. But what are those shortcuts really costing? Besides the empty calories, sodium, and sugar, there's the guilt you feel sending your child off to school with something you'd never cook or eat at home.

Purebred vs Domestic Cats

Purebred vs Domestic Cats

Nonpurebred and purebred cats alike make excellent companions. In fact, about 98 percent of cats fall outside the purebred population. Although they are often called “mixed breeds” for convenience, this term is misleading because most of them have no purebred cats at all in their family trees. The terms domestic shorthair (DSH) and domestic longhair (DLH) are more accurate, if less concise. For brevity, I'll call them Domestics throughout this book.
