We all experience days when it feels like we just can't get on the same page with our kids. No matter what we say, they aren't hearing it, and, before long, everyone ends up shouting and upset. There are so many good ways to get our points across to our kids, but we use the same meaningless phrases over and over, expecting to get different results.

ELECTRICIAN SCHOOL — Thanks to Pinterest and HGTV we all think we’re expert DIY pros when it comes to our homes. Quite often we go into our projects with the confidence of a lion only to finish and feel as sheepish as, well, a lowly sheep. You should see the wood floors in my house. Let’s just say the elevation change in my living room is enough to give you altitude sickness.

Infidelity looks different today than it did in the mid-nineties. Back in the Carter administration, when Murphy Brown and the X-files were still hanging on, an affair was considered an actual physical sexual encounter between people. Today however, infidelity is in the eye of the beholder. Sometimes, literally.

In June 2013 Nik Wallenda, of the famous Flying Wallenda circus family, walked 1,500 feet above the Little Colorado River Gorge on nothing more than a 2-inch steel cable. It took a little more than 22 minutes to walk the quarter-mile battling 30 mph winds and dust along the way. Talk about a balancing act.

Baby monitor technology is constantly evolving. But are all the new features worth the money? That depends. For a lot of families, the best solution is a basic audio-only monitor. They’re easy on your budget and can still offer an array of benefits. For other parents, the capabilities of a top-of-the-line video monitor are too good to pass up.

One of my most memorable moments was when my husband proposed. It was not an over-the-top proposal. It was simple but magical. One early afternoon, he picked me up for a regular date. We saw a movie and headed back to his house for dinner. After we ate, he disappeared for a couple of minutes. When he returned, he sat next to me on the couch with a small box. Even though it was a ring box, I didn’t expect a ring. At one point, we'd seriously discussed marriage but never decided on a specific time. When he ...

The closer the presidential campaign gets to the November general election, the more the race becomes a numbers game. Looking at previous results and surveying current polls, the general consensus is that the 2012 campaign, like most elections in recent memory, will come down to only a select handful of "swing states."

Community organizations come and go, often beginning vigorously and then sliding steadily downhill as the enthusiasm of members wanes. In many instances, they're formed for a specific purpose -- to advocate a cause or to oppose a particular proposal, or to generate community support for something viewed as especially beneficial. The Lake Wateree Association (LWA), in contrast, has not only survived but thrived for decades, driven by those who live on the lake or enjoy the many benefits it offers. Founded as the Lake Wateree Homeowners Association, the LWA continues to offer not only a way for lake lovers to ...

Many teachers think they are the only ones offering education from their pinnacle of supremacy. I, however, know that this is not true. A wise educator learns much more from his pupils than they derive from him. Certainly, on occasion, my mouth has fallen open in delight, shock, or amazement from my assigned individuals. One class, in particular, stands out in my memory. The whole class was brilliant! How amused they must have been to encounter me. I have never thought that boredom led to entrapment or involvement in the learning process, so many former students still smile and tell ...
