'Because I said so' is good enough

While wandering through various Internet parenting sites the other day, I came across a professional who advises parents to never say, "Because I said so."

Circulatory system needs exercise

Getting older is the pits! I injured my leg four weeks ago and have had to spend a lot of time elevating it. The inactivity hasn't helped my aging body - especially my arthritis.

Don't try to interpret child's behavior

Q: About a year ago, my husband and I underwent a major move with our 3-year-old. Six months later, I gave birth to twins.
