Resolve to improve your family

Given that this is the first column of a new year, I'm proposing a number of parenting New Year's resolutions for my readers to consider. The list is by no means comprehensive. It's just a good beginning on what is probably a much-needed family revolution:

Use preventative medicine as an advantage

Have you made resolutions for this year that you will work at and keep? And if you do have specific goals, does that mean you are a meticulous planner who knows what you're going to do each day and what you need to accomplish these plans?

Pledge to keep your resolution this year

Have you ever sat down with your family and tried to write down your holiday traditions? Did these begin with your grandparents or even before them? Some traditions are as simple as what foods you eat on Christmas while other traditions came to us from other countries or started with a particular event that was so well-received that everyone wanted to repeat the experience annually.

Mother’s feelings of loss are pretty typical

Q: Since the oldest of my three children started kindergarten this year, I have become increasingly attached to her, as if I took for granted the past five years I've had at home with her. The rational side of me knows I need to allow her to be independent of me, make mistakes and so on, but the irrational side feels almost literally sick when she comes home talking (in my opinion, prematurely) about boys, clothes and the like. I don't want to be a parent who ends up with a 30-year-old "kid" still living at home, but ...

'Doctor' puts children on right path

William Meyer, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Duke University, objects to a recent column of mine in which I recommended that parents move a toddler out of their bed by telling him that "the doctor" said he can't sleep with them any longer (a second child is on the way). In a letter to the editor of the Raleigh News and Observer, Meyer says that this is a lie and "sets up the child to feel an unwarranted anger" toward health-care professionals.

Children should be allowed to dream

Q: Our 16-year-old son is talking of going to a local community college after high school and living with one of his friends. He says he needs to find a job soon so he can prove to his friend's mom that he is hard-working. I was so shocked I just listened and haven't said how I feel about this whole thing. What would you say to this obviously delusional teen about his grand plans?
