Q: My 10-year-old son is having a miserable experience at the two-week camp we sent him to. He says he hates it there, that the other kids don't like him, and the counselor he was assigned to is mean. All this after just two days. He wants to come home. My instinct is to go get him, but my best friend says he's manipulating me. What should we do?

Summer is known as the cookout season, but my family's gas grill gets some serious year-round use. We grill steaks, chops, burgers or vegetables at least once a week.

Question: Help! We find it almost impossible to finish a restaurant meal when our 18-month-old twins are along, which is always. We give them toys to keep them busy, and they do well for about 30 minutes after which chaos breaks loose. They begin screaming and throwing things and make it very difficult for us to finish our meal much less enjoy conversation with other adults who may be with us. It's very embarrassing, and I generally end up leaving the restaurant with them. How can I be more proactive about this problem?
