How to Know Whether Your Parents Need Help

Sometimes, the fact that your parents need your help is painfully obvious. Your dad has a stroke; Mom falls and breaks her hip. You go to visit and find that the house is a mess and there's no food in the refrigerator.

Parents, Teens, and Alcohol: A Dangerous Mix

Parents Playing It Cool
Mike and Molly throw the best keg parties in town. The beer flows freely as burly varsity-football players collect car keys at the door.

Staying Connected to Your College Kids

Staying Connected to Your College Kids

How do you keep up a relationship with a child who is in college? Is it possible to nourish, and even deepen, your bond, despite being many miles apart? What's the appropriate number of times that you should write, phone, and visit her? Should you just cut the cord, acknowledging and reinforcing her independence, and let her determine how much contact she wishes to maintain with you?

How To Limit Your Child's Data Usage

kids starting at phones

Adding your child to the family mobile plan has become a new tech-oriented milestone, but for parents, it may also mean higher data costs. Unless you’re willing to pay for an unlimited data plan, you’ll want to have a serious discussion with your kid about data usage.

Realistically, a single chat won’t do the trick for most kids. Instead, you’ll need to model, educate, and regulate — and possibly pay the occasional overage fees when things don’t go as planned.

Solving the Dinnertime Dilemma

Solving the Dinnertime Dilemma

I dread dinnertime. Without question, dinner is the most difficult meal of the day for me. It's when I juggle the nutritional needs and eating preferences of three children while trying to prepare an interesting, healthy meal for Tom and myself. Throughout the day, the dietitian in me has kept mental tabs on what each child has eaten and what remains to be consumed at dinner.

Teach Kids to Save Money for the Wish List

Teach Kids to Save Money for the Wish List

Did you ever dream about owning a Ferrari? Did you ever want to put a pool in your backyard (or even have a backyard to put one in)? An adult's financial goals generally require a heavy savings commitment to reach them. Grown-ups save to buy a home, start a family, maybe start a business, and have a comfortable retirement. Those who are successful in meeting their goals generally are the ones who are experienced in saving. These people learned about saving early on.

Teaching Math for Homeschoolers

Teaching Math for Homeschoolers

Isabel Shaw

One Step Ahead
How can you teach math to your children if you struggle with it yourself? Yes, there are those among us who truly love math— people who grasp math concepts quickly, remember the laws and formulas easily, and retain this information over theyears.

Watch Out Helicopter Parents, Lawnmower Parenting Is Here

Watch Out Helicopter Parents, Lawnmower Parenting Is Here

Seems like every time we turn around there is a new label for something! It can be hard to keep up and it can seem irritating, but there are reasons for calling it out. This new parenting term I’m shedding light to is called the “lawnmower parent” and its one to be aware of. Being a parent is obviously an important job and people want to get it right. Everyone wants the best for his or her child; to provide for them, to give them more than they themselves had.

You offer us everything from “Dollar Bins” filled with school supplies to your own line of quality diapers, wipes, and formulas. We especially love shopping and then lunching at your on-site cafe. (More coffee, please! And a slice of pizza.)

Using Poison Control Centers

Using Poison Control Centers

Watch Out!

If your child is unconscious, having seizures, not breathing properly, or has other serious symptoms, call 911 to summon an ambulance. If you have the poison container, take it with you to the hospital so the contents can be identified.

Most cases of poison ingestion are treatable, but quick action is required. That's why every part of the country now has 24-hour-a-day phone access to one of the country's 75 poison control centers.
