Here are the top ten articles for the Sons Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
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. 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.
3. 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.
4. Having a Baby After 40
Having a baby after 40 can rock your world! Whether planned or not, having a baby after 40 is quite different from having a baby at 25.
5. Should You Require Your Son to Wear a Bike Helmet?
Knowing the statistics behind bike helmet laws can help you make a more informed decision about whether or not you should require your son to wear one.
6. Words of Encouragement for Moms
There is no perfect way to mother your children, and there is no model for the ideal mother. If you love your children and they love you, consider yourself a successful mom!
7. 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.
8. 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.
9. What is Operant Conditioning?
If you have the kind of son who loves to push your buttons and who doesn’t respond well to punishment (i.e., you haven’t really been able to find his “currency”), operant conditioning may just be the thing for you to try.
10. 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.
