Dear Mr. Dad. My husband and I have two-year-old twins – a girl and a boy – and we both love spending time with them. But I've noticed that he and I have very different styles, in several ways. We do different activities with the kids. And I've also noticed that I do a better job of treating the kids the same, while he treats our son very differently than our daughter. What's the best way to play with a toddler? And isn't it better to play with the two kids in exactly the same way?
The first call came three days into the new year. When I saw her name blink on my screen, I swallowed hard. For some reason, I suspected this wouldn't be a happy conversation. It wasn't. A dear, dear friend's test results were back. She had cancer.
Q: I've read enough of your writings to know that you believe children should be obedient, that they should do what they are told. I want my children to think for themselves and to question authority, not to blindly obey simply because someone is bigger than they are. I don't want them thinking that "might makes right." What's with wanting children to be robots?
When the kids were really young, we used to have the best Easters. I'd dress up like Jesus and they'd dress like little Roman soldiers and chase me around the yard. Insert your own symbolism if you like, but I caution you not to jump to conclusions. Many families have their special traditions.
I'm divorced and my son lives a week with his mother and a week with me. He is in the 6th grade. He recently got in trouble at school for using a racial slur and insulted one of his best friends. Evidently, he saw a comedy routine on YouTube and thought to repeat it. I talked to the principal and his friend's mother and now he's grounded and without a phone. I'm trying to be a good parent. What's good ex-etiquette?
I am standing before a small audience in Columbus, Ohio, apologizing for what I'm going to read. "It's about motherhood," I say, then quickly qualify, "but you know, more than that! It's about stories, and self, and the meaning of home."
Sparkling Ale, a new beer from Boulevard Brewing Co. and Piney River Brewing Co. in Bucyrus, Mo., will be sold only at Boulevardia, a two-day street festival coming up in the Stockyards District June 16-17.
Victims began reporting bites during a late February warm spell, and the calls keep coming. It’s unclear what the unwelcome news means for the rest of the year. Experts soon will be checking oak trees for possible clues.
Roadfood fans from the website’s online forum checked out Kansas City’s off-the-beaten path eateries in a 3 1/2 day eat-a-thon. Not surprisingly, their search for “regionally appropriate” food took them to a bounty of barbecue joints.
Cheeses made from spring milk contain those subtle herbal, grassy and bright flavors that cheese lovers look for. The potential for an outstanding and complex cheese is more alive in the spring than other seasons.
I like Craftbeer.com’s breakdown of today’s suds, which puts malted beverages into six categories: crisp & clean; malty & sweet; hoppy & bitter; fruity & spicy; sour, tart & funky; and dark & roasty. So what type of food brings out the best in these beers and vice versa?
