'Jersey Boys' -- oh, what a night
The award-winning show "Jersey Boys" is about to leave Chicago. So, I decided to get tickets for myself and my girls, ages 13, 10 and 8, to attend a matinee. "Jersey Boys" is, of course, the Broadway smash about the rise of that crooning quartet called the Four Seasons. The experience...

Fighting flu in my house
When it comes to germs or bacteria, I'm just not much of a worrier. Generally if food drops on the floor and the dog doesn't get it first, I consider it still OK for the kids. On the rare occasion when my children get sick, I figure "they'll get over it." And I've heard that children...

Please, no fundraisers
When I was a kid, I used to color rocks and sell them door-to-door. I usually did pretty well with that. Sometimes I would concoct knickknacks with yarn and hawk those, too. And when it came to selling Girl Scout cookies, I was the champ three years running. But a fundraiser for...

Don't worry about Obama's speech
Recently on "The Dennis Miller Show," a radio caller argued that we need to tax the very rich even more. To paraphrase, Miller told him: Hey, I'm probably one of those guys. What more do you want from me? Caller: I don't want anything from you. Miller: Meet me at a cafe, bring your...

I am woman, hear me talk
I watched my three daughters sitting on our trampoline. It was late on a sunny afternoon the day before school started earlier this week. The girls, ages 13, 10 and 8, were simply talking. Endlessly -- about everything and about nothing, about feelings and dreams and about the end...

Women 'attached' to combat units
And there she was in all her glory: GI Jane on the front page of this past Sunday's New York Times. An American soldier in Iraq, huge assault rifle in her arms, a woman on a mission. Maybe it's because I have three young daughters that I shuddered. No doubt this is an incredibly...

Welcome to hormone wars
I did it again. Racing through the store, I grabbed an item I needed, only to find out I'd paid for less. In other words, one doesn't want to be around my house when I get up early and discover "fat-free half-and-half" in my refrigerator.

Too heavy a burden
In the classic Hollies song, "He Ain't Heavy, He's my Brother," the group sings: "The road is long With many a winding turn That leads us to who knows where ... But I'm strong Strong enough to carry him He ain't heavy, he's my brother So on we go His welfare is of my concern No...

For family viewing, 'Lost' is real find.
Who knew that television could draw a family together? Seriously. I generally eschew TV, not because I'm a snob but mainly because I feel I don't feel I have the time to become engaged in unfolding or ongoing fictional dramas. (With four kids, I have enough real ones!) In spite of...

Childhood lessons help ease divorce pain
In a few days, I'll mark the fifth anniversary of the afternoon I watched my husband finally walk out of our family life after 17 years of marriage. This time, he wouldn't return to it. The kids were 10, 8, 5 and 3 when he left. So many folks over the years, both men and women, have...

What's up with the mom-and-paparazzi?
My sister was the first of us five kids to graduate from college. It was the 1970s, and I was in attendance to see her walk across the stage. Good thing, too: It turned out that although my father was shooting pictures, he was doing so, it was later discovered, without film. The only...

Will 'helicopter parents' trend come down to earth?
Could it really be that the era of "over-parenting" is, well, over? Probably my favorite description of the trend comes from Patricia Dalton, a clinical psychologist in Washington. In 2002, she wrote in The Washington Post about what she called "uber-parents." "They decorate their...

What to do about obesity?
With Memorial Day this past Monday, it's now "officially" summer. That means we are all bearing a little more skin, and many of us a lot more fat. Adult obesity is everywhere. Today Americans are getting fatter at faster rates than ever before. Currently some two-thirds of Americans...

Churches giving 'Kids Hope'
So who says that the American belief in "separation of church and state" means schools and churches can't work together? With graduation season upon us, it's sobering to think that 1.2 million kids drop out of high school each year, averaging about 7,000 a day or one every 26 seconds,...

Encouraging news about religion in America
Recent reports have suggested that Americans are becoming less religious in general. The religious naysayers piled on top of that news. However, a new report out this week from the Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion and Public Life suggests otherwise. Not because it quibbles...
