Should Parents Be Troubled By Tantrums?

It's hard to do, but if you can grit your teeth and ignore the tantrum, they'll soon fade away at home. For store tantrums, I immediately took my kids out to the car and let them scream it out, while I stood outside and ignored them and the dirty looks from other people - usually those without children of their own. I made sure that I gave the kids lots of positive comment for behaving nicely. As the old song goes, "You can't have one without the other"

The Battle Over Single-Use Grocery Bags

The bill is long overdue. When I first started using my own bags, I sometimes forgot to take them into the store, but hated bringing home all those plastic bags. They took over my kitchen and multiplied like wire hangers in the closet. I've now got a collection of reusable bags, most of which I've gotten for free from different stores offering them as a way to get buyers into their stores. I love them.
