Sydney Paige McCutcheon “My Surgery”

Afterward he talked to my mom and said I did really good and that we would see him in his office in a few weeks or maybe less I can't remember. But that would only be the first of many, and you won't believe the size of the syringe he used to fill my expander! Click here for the full article.

Kas Winters “Teach Children to Benefit from Failure”

The feeling we get when we fail at something is not usually a happy one. Often the first response of a parent is to try to “make it better” for a child. In society today, we’ve gone as far as making sure that “every” child wins and gets a prize. That does two things.

Dr. Nanette Bowles “Wheelchair Bound”

A dear (and recently passed) friend of mine used to say that the phrase “wheelchair bound” made him wonder if the person was “bound to a place called Wheelchair”.

Jodie Wilson “Rock, Paper, Scissors & Dynamite”

The other day I was playing with three of my grandchildren. Innocently I reached up on the shelf in the garage to get down a bottle of bubbles.

I quickly said, “I know how we will settle this Rock, Paper ,Scissors & Dynamite.” Click here for the full article.

John Rosemond “6-year-old Daughters Tantrums”

A concerned mother told me her 6-year-old daughter still threw tantrums nearly every day, during which she screamed as if she was being tortured, produced copious tears, and performed various contortions, often losing her balance and falling to the ground where she would writhe as if possessed by demons. In fact, the parents sometimes wondered if an exorcism might be appropriate. These tantrums occurred when she didn’t get her way. “Why does she throw these tantrums?” the mother asked.
