We might even be obsolete

If the next few years bring changes like we have seen the past 20 years, then I am sunk. Knowledge and technology are changing our lives so quickly that although I am trying, it is a losing battle.

‘Packets Up’ to prevent accidental poisoning

Doing laundry probably tops the list of the most frequent household tasks, so anything to make the chore easier is certainly welcome. While single-load liquid laundry packets offer lots of ease and convenience, these highly concentrated doses of detergent can be harmful if swallowed or splashed in the eyes of children.

This year's theme is "Go Further with Food" and what better way is there to fuel the fun than with fresh fruits and vegetables?

I remember many years ago, one of my favorite magazines, Working Mother, had an article titled, "The Parent Report Card." It seemed a bit awkward to ask my adolescent children at the time to grade me and their dad, on 25 different things. Part of the value of the parent report card is that it brings out issues parents may not realize are important.
