Schools, law enforcement should help in bully battles

Q: My oldest child starts kindergarten soon. I know there will be the class and/or bus bully who will cause her some distress, whether directly or indirectly. I want to know how to handle it before it happens so I'm prepared. I feel she will have to learn to handle situations like this as time goes on, but at this age, she will need my guidance and intervention. What should I say to her now to prepare her, and how I should handle incidents when and if they occur?

Crossfit, functional training

When we set fitness goals for ourselves, we tend to focus or hone in on specific areas of our bodies. Sometimes, we make the mistake of forgetting how each of our body systems and structures are connected and linked in specific ways that make isolating one part or another detrimental to our overall goals. Functional training exercises and training programs like CrossFit, ever-growing in popularity, can help us to use multiple body systems in dynamic and challenging ways in order to get us to new levels of fitness.

In the late 1960s, as psychologist B. F. Skinner's behavior-modification theory made the jump from academia into popular culture, the focus in child rearing shifted from molding character to "shaping" behavior. Books such as Gerald Patterson's "Living with Children" promised perfectly well-behaved children through the proper manipulation of rewards and punishments, such as timeout and systematic removal of privilege.

Monsters usually can be starved into submission

Q: The first time my 3-year-old called his 4-year-old brother "stupid," I was caught off guard and probably made too big a deal over it. I told him he is not allowed to call a person stupid because it is hurtful. He promptly began calling the dog, his cup and everything else under the sun "stupid." He loves to call people "stoopy" or "foopid" or "poopid" (especially that one, since it combines two words he knows annoy me). I've created a monster, haven't I? I have started ignoring the behavior, but what should I do when he directs ...
