My kids have always been close. They are a year and a half apart, and despite being opposites in many ways, they have always loved playing together and shared a special bond. From toddler hugs and giggles to school-aged...
Changes are happening, and you and your child are starting to notice. Sudden physical growth, a deepening voice, hair in different places, unexpected odors. For many boys and girls, puberty can occur any time between the ages of 8...
Straight to the dance studio from school, then straight home to do homework to get to the soccer field on time. Long drive to places far away and weekend hotel stays. This is our daily life. Both of my...
Sports help children develop physical skills, get exercise, make friends, have fun, learn teamwork, play fair, and improve self-esteem. But which sport is best for your child? What equipment do you need? What as a parent can you do...
