1. What the Common Core Standards Mean
The term Common Core Standards is all over the news and, most likely, your child's school. What are these standards? What do they mean for your son and his education?
2. Learning and Intelligence Diagnostic Tests
Knowing that your son does not think in quite the same way as other boys, but not being able to pinpoint the difference can be very frustrating, but there are diagnostic tests that, when administered by qualified professionals, can help you figure out his individual needs.
3. Reestablishing a Routine
When you fall off the wagon, you have two choices: you can sit on the ground and look around, bewildered, wondering what went wrong. That can take a long time. For some people, it can take the rest of their lives. Or, you can get back up and resume the journey.
4. Using Board Games for Educational Fun
You might ask why you need any of those dusty old games when your phone and iPad have all of the apps you need for teaching and playing with your son, but if you think back to your own childhood, you'll remember that nothing can take the place of a board game with good, solid pieces.
5. How to React to a Doctor's Bad News
Hearing unexpected news from the doctor can be scary, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that there is something seriously wrong with your son. Staying calm will help you understand what the doctor tells you and, therefore, better advocate for your son.
6. Review of Send by Patty Blount
Parents can talk until the cows come home but too often the words go in one ear and out the other. Stories, however, stay with teens. A book like Send will stay with your son and, maybe, will come back to him at a propitious time.
7. Learn Anything on YouTube
Over the past couple of years I have realized that one can learn anything on YouTube. From piano lessons, to art ideas, to car and appliances fixes, if it can be taught, someone is teaching it for free on YouTube!
8. Your Son's Cell Phone Usage
The increased technology in the present generation presents new parenting challenges. For ideas on how to handle one of them, cell phones, read on!
9. Parenting with Chronic Pain
Parenting sons is challenging enough. Parenting sons when you deal with chronic pain issues can be overwhelming. To get through periods of chronic pain without losing your heart for parenting, consider these suggestions.
10. Ways to Save on School Supplies
As hard as it is to believe, summer has barely started when it is time to think about going back to school again. School clothes and supplies don't have to be a major expense, though, if you plan ahead.
