Children who would never pick up a book prior to being seized with "Potter mania" have long since risen to the challenge of reading seven hundred or more pages of text - a feat which some parents and educators would deem magical in itself.
Q: Doc, I am 34 years old, and I think I'm in good health. I watch what I eat, exercise regularly and don't take any regular medication.

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.

I'm always sad to see summer go, but the food of fall and the excitement of the holidays quickly propel me forward.
