Comment on: Now Kids With Allergies Can Sport "Don't Feed Me" T-Shirts - 24 Hour Workday - Boston.com
Posted 03/19/2013 12:36:05 EDT
I agree that this might work for kids who are too young to watch out for themselves, but at some point they learn not to eat anything without checking. I've certainly learned not to offer any kid food more »
Comment on: 'At the end of the day, it’
Posted 05/09/2012 12:26:40 EDT
This is one the lamest articles ever. 1. Men cook. My husband does. 2. Kids won't starve and they will eat what they are offered eventually. 3. Buying food for appearance sake and letting it rot is un more »
Comment on: 'The yoga-averse rejoice over new book warning of yoga injuries'
Posted 01/20/2012 04:02:56 EST
The photos with this article have nothing to do with yoga. She is a gymnast or contortionist or something else. Those are not yoga poses. Very silly. more »
Comment on: Equal Rites Awards - The Boston Globe
Posted 08/26/2011 08:01:52 EDT
If you really look around you'll notice that - even with Obama in office and women in positions of power - white guys still run everything. And they like it that way. more »

Comment on: 'Youth and the T'
Posted 06/10/2011 09:14:45 EDT
Very impressed with these young people. The intiative and hard work they put into this proposal and their continued advocacy is to be admired. Its sad how little credit young people receive. Incivilit more »
Comment on: 'Visits to ER rise despite health law'
Posted 06/07/2011 10:27:20 EDT
Another option is an Advanced Access system whereby the PCP office leaves a block of open appointments every day for same day visits. I worked for a community health center that used this and they nev more »
Comment on: Big strollers squeeze T riders - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/10/2011 04:30:20 EDT
I'd like everyone posting here demanding that strollers be folded to get on a crowded bus with a baby and toddler in tow. Take the baby out of the stroller without letting go of the toddler. Fold up t more »
Comment on: 'Colleges worry about always-plugged-in students'
Posted 04/24/2011 02:04:41 EDT
Some of the most fun times at college were hanging out in the lounge or in each other's rooms talking endlessly about nothing and everything. I think its sad if kids aren't just hanging out anymore. A more »

Comment on: 'The tug of war that decides whether Mom or Dad stays home with their sick child'
Posted 03/29/2011 10:38:50 EDT
Maybe the big question is why we don't demand that employers recognize EVERYONE, whether they have kids or not, has obligations and a life outside the workplace. Expecting people to work longer hours more »

Every single parent might not be disabled or laid off, but they might be working minimim wage jobs (often more than one), barely making rent (which in Boston can be a little expensive), and trying the more »
Comment on: 'Farmers, consumers of raw milk want fewer restrictions on its sale'
Posted 03/03/2011 01:22:43 EST
The industrial production of milk is part of the reason it needed to be pasteurized! Large scale farms are dirty and germ filled places and you wouldn't want to drink that stuff raw. If you're going t more »
Comment on: 'In world of extreme couponing, goal is get it for free'
Posted 02/27/2011 02:04:53 EST
Doesn't sound like she advocates cleaning the shelves at every store- that's some of her crazy readers. Again its up to the stores to figure out how to prevent that. Its great that they use her for co more »
Comment on: Monday%20question%3A%20Space%20invaders
Posted 02/22/2011 04:37:54 EST
Really, if I drive onto your street how am I supposed to know how many times you shovelled out that spot? If no car is in the spot, it is an open spot. When I worked in Brookline I followed the rules more »

Posted 01/22/2011 10:13:52 EST
Posters, please note. The word is PROBABLY not prolly. Prolly is not a word. And I want to go hug my neighbors. We live in a two family and we all act like adults - and it works! more »

Posted 01/21/2011 10:33:48 EST
My 8 year old went out to play in the snow while my husband was using the snow blower. He saw the shovel, picked it up, and started helping. It snowed the next day and as we were leaving the house he more »
Comment on: 'Body building: The ideal shape has shifted constantly over the years.'
Posted 01/20/2011 05:03:35 EST
Many actresses and models look healthy because they're slim but they also smoke like chimneys, probably to keep their weight down. So a slightly heavier, curvier woman who isn't hacking up tar might a more »

Comment on: 'The day care squeeze'
Posted 12/12/2010 08:46:56 EST
The people who say that you shouldn't have kids if one parent can't stay home WILL NEVER GET IT. They will never understand and its not worth arguing. We live in a condo, drive an old car, and haven't more »

Other countries seem to recognize that 1. we need kids to ensure our society continues, 2. providing the best education for kids is important for all of our futures; and 3. parents need to work. In th more »
