If there’s one thing Dr. Adam Behrens of the Wandering Vet in San Francisco would like pet parents to know it’s that continuing preventative care can save your pet’s life. It seems like common sense but too often this vet has seen a life cut short by this subtle, even unintended form of neglect.
Yes, Rover may get long walks and treats every day and Kitty may have clean litter and plenty of brushings and plenty of catnip, but serious pet care takes more than guesswork and good intentions. It’s easy to avoid taking a pet to the doctor especially if it’s an unpleasant experience all around.... Read More
In Africa, most children help with the work in their homes. Accordingly, they do things like washing clothes, cleaning the house, shopping, cooking, looking after very young children and even plowing in the field. In small families, it can’t be difficult for parents to do this by themselves. But in big families, it is impossible and children have to do their share of the work. This is important because it teaches useful life skills at a young age.
However, there is a big difference between normal family duties and giving children so much to do that they cannot go to school and have little... Read More
When I was pregnant with my first son, I almost had a miscarriage and was put on bed rest. I had to quit my job. My husband and I had been married only 9 months when I got pregnant. It wasn't planned, but that's just how things go sometimes. I didn't go back to work in any capacity until my youngest was in kindergarten, that was about a 10 year span. When I did go back to work, I worked out of my home so that I could be at home when the kids got out of school for the day. I haven't worked outside the home since.
I was lucky enough to be able to do this, but it was a trade off in... Read More
The American Journal Of Health Promotion conducted a long-term health study on 7500 babies born in 2001. The study concluded that 32 percent of babies in the U.S. were found to be too fat by 9 months of age, and more than 34 percent of them were overweight or obese by the time they were 2 years old.
The height (length was used for infants) and weight of the kids was measured at 9 months and 2 years of age. The study then compared those measurements to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) guidelines on their growth charts. Kids who were found to be over the 85th percentile for weight... Read More
In this day of electronic games, computers, social networking, a million cable channels on TV, families find more and more often that they don't spend a lot of "real" time together. While they may be in the same house, they are largely focused on their own activities of choice and spend little time actually doing things together. A lot of people blame it on the advent of computer gaming and gaming systems, but I am here to actually sing the praises of one such system as a family togetherness tool.
My kids got the Kinect system for the X-Box for Christmas. They were very excited for... Read More
One of my favorite Christmas traditions is making giant gingerbread Christmas cookies with the kids. Even though my boys are no longer kids, they still love making these cookies and of course eating them. It's something that we do together on Christmas Eve and they always look forward to it every year. The house smells absolutely yummy and the cookies are really wonderful on a chilly Christmas Eve night. Here's the recipe, if you want to try it out yourself:

As the mother of 3 teenage boys, I've learned a lot of things over the years. One of the main things is that no matter how much I want to manage or influence my kids choices that the natural progression of things leads to my letting go and to their making mistakes. It is the way of life and it is the way that they learn.
When children are small, parents can shape their actions and choices. They can determine what they do, where they go, what things they receive. They can to a large extent determine how well they do in school as children are more apt to respond to parental involvement... Read More
