 Article Title :: Ten ways to Become Best Friends with Your Teenager
 
Ten ways to Become Best Friends with Your Teenagers by: V. Michael Santoro, M. Ed. Best friends! It may seem impossible to believe, but today’s teens do want to consider their parents as friends, even though they think we could never understand the realities of their world. They are also interested in what it was like being a teenager during the Stone Age. Life without cell phones or the Internet must have been unimaginable! So even with this interest, can parents and teens really become best friends when competing with busy schedules, and raging hormones? The answer is a resounding YES…and it is worth the effort! What is important to understand is that both of you have to want   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Monitoring Your Teens for Drug Use without Appeari
 
Monitoring Your Teens for Drug Use without Appearing to be Spying by: V. Michael Santoro, M. Ed. Even if your teenagers do not use drugs, you still need to keep an eye on them. It is much better to realize that things could change, and anticipate that your teen COULD become a user. Essentially, it is not wise to make assumptions about topics such as drug use. Also, having been a high school teacher afforded me the opportunity to witness peer pressure, and how even good kids could be convinced to try drugs - just to fit in. It is important that you play a proactive role in ensuring that your teenagers and the rest of your family remains drug free. About drug use Initially, I learned   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Unilateral Disarmament - The First Step to Improvi
 
Unilateral Disarmament - The First Step to Improving Communications with Your Teenagers by: V. Michael Santoro, M. Ed. Many times, we are so conditioned in how we speak that we do not realize whether or not we are effectively communicating with our teens. This is especially true when they upset us. To ensure that you are fostering an environment that will encourage your teenager to talk to you, as opposed to fearing you, the first step is to evaluate your communication style. How you express yourself and what you say to your teens, especially when you are angry, can inhibit your relationship with them. Reacting by shouting short sarcastic phrases will usually turn off most people, inc  (read full article)

What's Troubling Your Teenager? - Peeling Back the Onion Layers by: V. Michael Santoro, M. Ed. Onion layers are a good analogy for problem solving. Like onions, problems can have multiple layers, and if you do not dig deeply enough, you may end up not solving the real problem. A good way to indicate whether or not you have "peeled back" enough layers is to see how you "feel" during the problem solving process. At times it will seem like you have discovered the proper solution, but something just doesn't "feel right" about it. At that point, it is advisable to trust your instincts and discuss the problem with someone. I have often said myself, "You know, everything seems right, but   (read full article)

How to Listen to Your Teenager without Appearing to Have Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) by: V. Michael Santoro, M. Ed. In one of the Family Circus cartoon strips, the little girl looks up at her father, who is reading the newspaper, and says, "Daddy, you have to listen with your eyes as well as your ears." That statement says almost all there is to say about listening. Being a good listener means focusing attention on the message and reviewing the important information. Listening can be considered an art, as well as a skill, and like other skills, it requires that you exhibit some discipline to be effective. However, in today's world where multitasking is considered essential to sur  (read full article)

Coaching Your Teenagers on the Quest for Good Grades by: V. Michael Santoro, M. Ed. It is important that as a parent, you create a flexible environment that supports your teen, and provides her with the opportunity to grow into a self-reliant young adult. As a teenager, she will think at times that she has all the answers, and not need you. However, she will be happy to have you as a "safety net" when she realizes she does not have all the answers. This can include how well she is doing in school. Obviously grades are important but sometimes the quest for good grades can become an obsession, or not taken seriously enough. As parents, we can fall into the common trap of measuring our c  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Think Like Your Kids - And Understand Them More
 
Think Like Your Kids - And Understand Them More by: Frank McGinty Seven-year old Michael was on a school trip to a Wildlife Centre in Central Scotland. It was near the end of the day and they were in the Gift Shop before boarding the bus for the journey home. Poor Michael! He couldn't resist the array of lollipops and chocolate animals that beckoned to him. He chose one and was about to pay for it with his last few pennies. His teacher, a kindly soul with not long before retirement, noticed him. "Have you bought something for your Mum yet, Michael?" Michael lowered his head in shame! Gently, the teacher took the candy bar from him and replaced it on the shelf. She walked to ano  (read full article)

Holiday De-Stressing Tips for Kids by: Deborah Shelton The holiday season can be a hectic, stressing time not only for adults, but also for children: lots of driving around town in traffic jams; schlepping through overcrowded shopping malls; giving up your room for out-of-town relatives who emit a funny smell. Yep, it can be a difficult time. Here are a few tips to keep your little ones, and yourself, calm and comfortable during the holiday season. * Lay on the floor together with your legs propped up against the wall; toes pointing to the ceiling. Talk to each other or just silently count the turns of the ceiling fan. * Go for a walk together. Take an early morning walk before every  (read full article)

 Article Title :: How to Choose a Baby Bathtub
 
How to Choose a Baby Bathtub by: Jackie G. Maxwell Choosing a baby bathtub is likely one of the easiest decisions you'll have to make when it comes to acquiring supplies for the new arrival. Basically, if it holds water, you're all set. There is little in the way of advantages to baby bathtub designs. Your basic tub shape, made of sturdy plastic, preferably with a drain plug in the bottom, will do you for quite a while. About the only essential differences, are whether the tub comes with one end that is built up so you can lay an infant back against the elevation, while washing them with water from lower down in the tub. This style of baby bathtub, may come with a non-slip padded   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Why Allowances for Back to School?
 
Why Allowances for Back to School? by: Eileen & Jon Gallo What do good schools and well thought out allowances have in common? Both teach your child a vitally important life skill: reflective thinking. Kids are naturally impulsive. Learning how to reflect before making a decision – learning to think in terms of choices, alternatives and consequences -- is a great life skill for kids to learn. Stanley Greenspan, M.D., one of the country’s leading child psychiatrists, says that children who develop the ability to think in terms of choices and consequences are likely to grow into teenagers and adults who “can solve problems and assess and evaluate their own impulses and desire  (read full article)
