Kathy Bradley: Summer solstice, summer storm

At about 9 o'clock Monday night, I stood in the middle of the front yard and took in the magic.

School's out for summer; let playtime begin. Hopefully your family has a list - mental or written - of lots and lots of fun activities to accomplish before the school bell chimes again.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Although world is more complex, parents need not stress

"Puzzled Grandma in the South" recently wrote to "Dear Abby" asking, "Why is there so much angst today over raising children, especially in young mothers?" Grandma has observed that moms of her generation (baby boomers) did not agonize over raising kids, and neither did her mother or grandmother.
