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. 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. Discussing Politics with Your Son
Politics are everywhere these days. When, why, and how should you discuss them with your son?

6. 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.

7. Good Advice for Sons and for Moms
One thing that I have learned about parenting is that, often, what is good advice for my son is good advice for me. Here are the most common things I tell my son that I find apply to me, too.

8. Keeping Cool This Summer
The summer heat does not have to keep your son inside this summer. Observe some simple practices, and make sure that his summer is one to remember!

9. How to Deal with Talking Back
Most boys will talk back at one time or another, but employing a strategy from the beginning, and always following it consistently, will help minimize the impact this frustrating habit may have on you and your family.

10. 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.
