Buying Guidelines for Safe and Fun Toys
December 10, 2013 -- The right toys can help children develop imagination and coordination. The wrong ones can do more harm than good. Toy-related injuries send tens of thousands of children to the emergency room each year. Many injuries occur when parents give their children toys meant for older children.
Although many toy manufacturers follow safety guidelines for their products, some don't. Your challenge is to find toys your children will enjoy and that you know are safe.
A Holiday Help Guide for Stepfamilies
December 4, 2013 -- Around the holidays, stepfamily life can become particularly stressful, especially for children who'll spend time at more than one household. Circumstances vary depending on each situation. In general, households separated by a short distance in which both sides of the family see the child/children frequently have different issues than those separated by long distances where the non-custodial parent may only see the child once or twice a year.
Children deal with the guilt of having to leave one parent behind. They are often thrust into a new environment with unfamiliar family members and a new routine, only to have to go home again soon.

Care Just For Kids
November 15, 2013 -- Meagan Cammarn recognized something was wrong earlier this year when her 3-year-old daughter, Emily, began wetting the bed again long after being potty trained. Emily was thirsty all the time and often acted tired.
"At first we hoped it might just be a stage," Cammarn says. "But it gradually got worse and it became obvious something was really wrong."
A hospitalization confirmed Emily had type 1 diabetes-a disease where the body is unable to produce insulin needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy for daily life.
Take a 'Back in the Day' Tour
November 4, 2013 -- Have your grandchildren ever seen your old neighborhood, or the spot where you were married, or the building where you worked your first job? If you want a special outing with your grandkids, consider a "This is My Life" tour. Revisiting your childhood community together is a great way to pass on family history while bringing you and your grandkids closer.
"It's one thing to tell your grandchildren stories about your childhood. It's another thing to help them experience these stories themselves," says Amy Goyer, coordinator of the Grandparent Information Center for AARP. "Seeing the sights of your old neighborhood or homestead helps bring the experience alive, which means the grandkids will remember it a lot longer."
