Communication Goals With Your Kids and Their Teachers in the New Year
One of the best ways to help your children succeed in school is to have good communication with both them and their teachers. Obviously, the more you know about what your children are doing at school, the easier it will be for you to help them to do their best. In addition, you will be able to praise them for their very real accomplishments, which makes for a win-win situation.

Free-Range Kids: Walking the Line Between Caution and Freedom
When I was a kid, we'd run around the streets all day and night. That was the norm. My wife, Maura, grew up in Brooklyn. Her parents sent her to Europe when she was 14 - with only a backpack, her best friend and her friend's brother, a 22-year-old sailor. That wasn't the norm. Despite what grandparents like to say, things weren't all that different "in the old days." The world has never been completely safe.

Cancerhawk: One Mom's Unexpected Journey
Six years ago, Stoller's life was blissfully chaotic. The Rockville mom of three was raising her young children with her husband, Alan. Her days were filled by a demanding yet rewarding job, kids' soccer games and a typical family routine. But that all changed with one diagnosis. It was the summer of 2009 when Alan decided that he wanted to remove a lump from his arm, something that the doctors had dismissed as a simple lipoma for over 15 years. However, the procedure resulted in a much grimmer diagnosis. Alan was diagnosed with a naplastic rhabdomyosarcoma (formerly called pleomorphic rhabdomyosarcoma) - an aggressive and rare form of cancer. http://www.washingtonparent.com/articles/1507/1507-cancerhawk-one-moms-unexpected-journey.php
