Living with Children with John Rosemond: Public-school discipline policies tie teachers' hands

A first-grade teacher asks what she can do about a girl in her class who is completely undisciplined. After nearly two months of this teacher's best efforts, the child's behavior is no better. She is defiant and aggressive toward other kids, and often gets out of her seat and crawls around on the floor. Several years ago she taught the girl's older sister, who also had numerous discipline issues. The home is chaotic, so the teacher doubts she can expect much - if any - help from the parents.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Foolproof apple crisp for the love of fall

On my ride to work on the first day of October, I turned on the defrost in my car for the first time this year. When I got to work, I turned off my air conditioning, relishing in the cool, rainy temperatures outside. This season, I've already enjoyed a few weekend brunches on my screened-in back porch, easy like a Sunday morning.
