Avengers: Movie Review

Last weekend history was made. It did not mark the start of a war, or the discovery of some vital new technology, instead tens of thousands of people stood in line for a movie. Altogether, these people spent approximately 207 million dollars to see this movie. This is far and away the greatest total for a single movie in a single weekend. This record-breaking movie is Marvel's The Avengers, and I, quite unwittingly, was one of the many who helped it make history.

Treasure Hunting in Kansas City

Wouldn’t it be great If there were still unexplored places? Undiscovered lands? Great expeditions to seek out the lost… Something? Sound like stuff of fairytales or history books?

Help Your Student Deal with Cliques

You have the cliques that hang out together because they share certain interests; these students often help foster each other’s development and are usually not a problem. Then you have the groups of kids who are actually excluding other kids and bullying. How do you help your child deal with cliques?

Getting Your Teen and Tween to Talk

Remember those toddler and preschool days when your child began talking your ear off and asking questions nonstop? Now, as a parent to a tween or pretween, you probably wish you had a little bit of that back. Right?

Why Do Kids Start Smoking?

“Each day approximately 1,110 kids become regular, daily smokers and between one third and one half will eventually die as a result of their addiction,” according to the American Lung Association. Lovely topic, I know!

Media Mix: Tweenage Girls

Too old for toys, too young for boys. Tweenage years are a perilous time…for parents. Arm yourselves!

Password Police

More and more of our children are signing up for their own accounts, typing and receiving e-mails and text messages, “friending” people on Facebook and leaving us with a very important question. Should parents have access to their children’s accounts?
