Mothers need to take back authority

One of the greatest ironies of our time: Today's women have inherited from their mothers the freedom to claim authority in the military, corporations, churches, the professions, politics and higher education, but have been persuaded, largely by their own gender, to all but completely abdicate their authority over their children.

Some ‘problems’ really aren’t big deals

I estimate that one-fourth of the questions parents ask me involve issues or behaviors that merit little - if any - concern. Some of the "problems" in question are normal to certain stages of development. Others are nothing more than little glitches that will resolve themselves in time (and might develop into real problems if people respond to them as such). And some are reflections of personality (or temperament), which is inborn and therefore fairly fixed, although not immutable. These include things like shyness, which most shy people figure out how to successfully compensate for by early adulthood. Here's a short ...

Foot care essential to healthy living

Did you know that each of our amazing feet contain more than 26 bones, four arches and 33 joints? There are more than 250,000 sweat glands in the feet that produce about 500 milliliters of sweat per day. In an average lifetime, a person will walk a distance equivalent to more than three trips around the earth. On average, we walk 3,000 steps per day, so our feet take a lot of abuse. Those who run or walk as a form of exercise may take as many as 10,000 steps per day. So it seems our feet ...
