Older child responsible for conflict

Q: Our 7-year-old son and 32-month-old daughter squabble with each other constantly, mostly over taking and playing with each other's toys. The problem is our daughter, really. She will hit, scream and throw things when she is angry. She wants to be in her brother's room doing whatever he is doing, and he will not close his door.

Adults can help prevent teen pregnancy

The 10th annual National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy is May 4. This promotional campaign is designed to improve the lives and futures of children and families. Organizers also want to help ensure that babies are born into stable, two-parent families ready for the demanding task of raising the next generation, which may improve the well-being of children, moms and dads while decreasing poverty. Lowering the teen pregnancy rate also means young men and women will have more opportunities to complete their education and achieve other life goals. It also may result in fewer abortions and a stronger nation.

Protecting skin more important than tan

Q: My 5-year-old daughter relies on me far too much. All through the day, she asks me to do simple things for her like get her a glass of water or help her put on her shoes - things she is able to do for herself. If I don't cooperate, she begins to whine, then cry. It's driving me crazy.
