My middle son’s car broke down today on the way to the mechanic’s. I knew it needed help and that is why I was on my way to have it serviced in the first place. I just didn’t think it was so imminent. (He’ll be taking his road test at the end of the month…

When I hauled the three boxes of Halloween decorations and costumes back up the attic, I realized that the candy bowl I’d been looking for the week before – the one with the grabby hand and sound effects – was in one of two other boxes of Halloween stuff…

Sitting can be deadly: anything that can go wrong because of too much sitting is wrong. I needed to make a change. So I joined a kickboxing gym.

“How are you feeling?” “Uhmmmm…” I had been asked this same question three times in as many days. First, my friend who taught an exercise class I used to go to when it worked with my schedule. I told her about my thyroid problem. Then, my doctor’s office.…

When his hockey team finished second in their division in the playoffs and were awarded trophies, When his hockey team finished second in the playoffs and were awarded trophies, my son's never crossed the threshold of his room. It was meaningless to him.

We got a note from the team mom of the middle school hockey team asking if we were going to participate this year. It’s not a school-sponsored team, just a town team that comprises all the kids from my son’s grade. Well, it’s supposed to be a town team…

Here is a very real example of the disparity between time off in the US vs. time off in Europe. (Hint: Americans are overworked.) I got a request from someone in Texas last night after 7 p.m. to do something, which meant I’d have to contact someone at a…

One of my sons’ friends is stuck at home this summer, sharing a room with her two sisters in a small two-bedroom apartment in a concrete complex. She doesn’t have a job and can’t apply anywhere beyond walking distance: She doesn’t have her license because…

Please just stop coaching your kid from the sideline. Your kid has a coach and it isn’t you.

Please just stop coaching your kid from the sideline. Your kid has a coach and it isn’t you. (If it is you, you’re in the dugout or on the bench or at first or third base, and by all means, carry on!) Do not shout advice to your kid. During the middle of…
