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. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. Alternatives for Non-Athletic Sons
Sports may be the first thing one thinks of when he thinks of boys and their hobbies, but it is by no means the only hobby for a boy. Explore some hobby alternatives to traditional team sports, and find something new to introduce to your son today!
8. When Little Boys Dress Like Girls
Recent events in the news have made some parents wonder if it is normal for their sons to dress up in girls' clothes. Psychologists agree that such behavior is completely normal, and is even complimentary of your parenting style.
9. Teaching Children Not to Stare
Having your son stare at someone can make you as a parent uncomfortable, but once you understand that staring is age-appropriate behavior, you can use your son's staring as a teaching moment.
10. Help! My Son is Afraid of School!
With the first day of school looming, you may find this time of year stressful for a number of reasons. If your son is afraid to go to school, though, that stress may be overwhelming. Getting to the bottom of his fear can make the transition back to school easier for both of you.
