Language is one of the most imortant skills a baby needs to learns from his parents.  Backward-facing strollers allow parents to talk to their babies a lot more and encourage more interaction.  And more importantly, babies feel more secure when they see their mommy or daddy.

Developing an attitude of gratitude can help you live a longer, happier life.   Kids cannot be cajoled into showing appreciation, but your gentle efforts and examples will instill a mind-set of gratitude especially when you start at an early age.  Below is a 2-year old in a thankful prayer. This is so precious beyond words!
Kathryn Whitt caught her daughter Sutton praying an hour after putting her to bed.

Don't be quick to blame teachers.  Parents have a great impact on how well their kids do well in school.
A new study finds that pupil attainment and ability is affected five times more by parental influence than by teachers.

"Breast milk acts as a baby's first vaccine to help fight disease and illness," said Dr. Cesar Victora, emeritus professor of epidemiology at the Federal University of Pelotas in Brazil.  Mom benefits, too.  
Billed as the most comprehensive look at breast-feeding research, a new report finds hikes in breast-feeding could prevent 820,000 children's deaths each year.

My kids are returning to school tomorrow!  I have to review this list of questions that urge them to talk about their day.  "How was your day?" is not on the list.
The question "How was your day?" is a conversation killer, especially for kids. Here are 30 alternatives that will inspire more than a grunt in reply.

Kids who often play outside such as in parks, nature trails, and beaches not only improve their health and their social skills but also develop stewardship skills.  Who will take care of our environment in the future if no one cares?

I'm against legalizing marijuana because this raises the possibility of it becoming more accessible to teenagers.  Frequent users are not only more likely to drop out of highschool, but are also more prone to other issues later in life such as depression, suicide, welfare dependence, and using other illegal drugs.  
Teens who use marijuana daily before age 17 are more than 60% less likely to get their high school diploma than those who've never used pot, a study says.
