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.

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.

I love talking about my kids and I like sharing parenting tips that I find interesting, but my kids were never the center of my world.  High five, Stepanie Metz!
Stephanie is a mother of two kids and recently had enough. She wrote and eye-opening public confession on her blog... after I saw it, I totally agree with her.

I couldn't agree more with Dr. Peter Gray that children need lots of time to play, but they still have to do their chores.  Responsibility is an important thing to learn as well. 
I’m a research bio-psychologist with a PhD, so I’ve done lots of school. I’m a pretty good problem-solver, in my work and in the rest of my life, but that has little to do with the schooling I’ve had. I studied algebra, trig, calculus and various other maths in school, but I can’t recall ever facing a problem – even in my scientific research – that required those skills. What maths I’ve used was highly specialised and, as with most scientists, I ...

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?

Some light at the end of selfies.  Yes, children can learn this way, too.
#SmartSelfies - Now that's a hashtag we can get behind.

 It is critical for a parent to responds to their baby's needs in a warm and sensitive way.  This is not a job for mom alone but being attached to dad is just as helpful and actually very important for boys.

There are children's books that touched our lives as kids and it would be beautiful to be able to share these experiences with our kids as well.  And wouldn't it be great to talk about it after?
Our very favorite children's books left an irreversible impression on our childhoods and on our lives. Some of our most cherished storybook characters are so real and palpable in our memory that it feels as if we were introduced to them yesterday. Be...

Do you mix up your kids' names like I do?  You're not alone.  Lol!
Of 334 people surveyed, 40 percent reported that their parents called them by their siblings' names occasionally or often.

Helpful tips from Sarah MacLaughlin on how to keep your cool when your kid says, "No!"
There is something about your child looking you straight in the eye and saying, "No, I won't do that," "I hate you" or "You can't make me" that challenges you to the core. You are so not alone.
