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. 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.
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. 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.
5. 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!
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. What to do When Your Son Makes Bad Friend Choices
When your son is a toddler, you get to pick his friends. Often, they will be the sons of your own friends. As soon as your son is old enough to develop preferences, though, he will undoubtedly choose his own friends. What is a mother to do when he makes less than desirable choices?
9. Homeschooling Your Son
