    I loved rides as a kid but around the time I went to college my ability to go on spinning rides, even playground merry-go-rounds, went way down. I even feel slightly queasy on swings. I recommend Stor more »

    Just got back from two nights of camping at a Vermont state park campground. I have no problem with family camping - my kids did their share of bickering and the dog was a little whiny at 6 AM and I h more »

    Cute article but it's not exactly new. 20 years ago when my boyfriend (now husband) and I were at graduate schools on opposite ends of the country, email kept us together. We couldn't afford long dist more »

    It is beyond my understanding how parents could knowingly let underage kids drink, particularly kids who are not their own. However, teens are sneaky and it is very understandable that what may seem l more »

    The author did a great job of delving into the real circumstances of youth sports and not just jumping on sound bites and slogans (unlike many of the posters here who apparently didn't actually read t more »

    While PE is fun for some kids, for others who are less athletically inclined it can be stressful and is NOT a break for them. Recess allows all kids to have a breather in their own way, either by runn more »

    To me, showing up with a gift when no gifts were specifically requested shows that you care more about yourself and some strange permutation of etiquette than about the person that you are supposed to more »

    Oooh, this is such a pet peeve of mine! Why is it so difficult for Americans to form a queue and wait their turn? Whenever I'm in a store where they have a single line to wait for the next available r more »

    Ah, the quest to score free food! As a grad student, the cheese and crackers and veggies and dip at seminar receptions was also known as dinner. The best was being chosen to take a prospective grad st more »

    Mike O' Malley's Emmy nomination for Glee is well deserved. Every scene he is in is just spot on and most have moved me to tears. We see him for just a mere second in the stands when Kurt kicks a fiel more »

    I took a "gap year" between college and grad school. I had already been accepted into a PhD program but was completely burned out from school/life and didn't have the energy or enthusiasm I knew I'd n more »

    I agree with yogafriend that this is not a silly question and we all need to be a little nicer when we respond (JamesonPlease I mean you). Perhaps the daughter in question is always responsible when p more »

    I worry far more about my child getting home safely from a concert than what actually goes on at the concert. Kids come out of a show pumped on adrenaline (or whatever) and head for their cars where t more »

    I know rents are high but man, oh man, I would have done whatever it took to move out of the house in my 20's. In fact, I did. I had housemates until my BF and I moved in together. Get out of the hous more »
