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. Establishing Boundaries with Your Son
In some ways, parenting has changed dramatically over the last 20 years. Parents tend to be more involved in their children's lives and boundaries have become blurred. What do you need to know to parent your son successfully today?
4. Cleaning a Boys' Bathroom
Having boys is wonderful, but one aspect of mothering boys that is decidedly un-wonderful is cleaning their bathroom. In order that you might not be shell shocked when you encounter potty trained sons for the first time, read this article for tips on boy bathroom maintenance.
5. 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.
6. How Much Homework Help to Give Your Son
Homework can be a difficult topic for many parents. How much should you help your son? Is his homework appropriate for his age? When should you talk to the teacher? This article will help you dissect this issue and answer these questions!
7. Boys and Violent Video Games
Studies' results conflict as to whether playing violent video games can cause aggression in boys. Understanding more about those studies and their results can help you to make an informed decision about whether to let your son play them.
8. Respecting Your Son's Privacy
No parent wants to deliberately violate her son's privacy, but how much privacy is he entitled to? When does it become a parent's responsibility to invade her son's privacy? How can it best be accomplished?
9. 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.
10. Is Santa Claus Real?
Regardless of how your family handles the issue of Santa Claus, it is almost inevitable that you will, at some point, hear the question, "Is Santa Claus real?"
