Advice for Parents

Anger Management: Strategies for Parents and Grandparents
Anger management not only helps you deal with your child or grandchild in a kind and constructive way, but it also sets a good example of how to handle challenging situations and work out conflicts.
Disciplining Your Child at Any Age
Each child is different, but most children need to be given clear rules about behavior.
Job Safety Critical for Teens
Farming seems to be the most dangerous job. Teens also get hurt in restaurants, supermarkets, retail stores, and other places where they find after-school and summer work.
Put Peer Pressure in Its Place
Peer pressure can get the best of children and push them to do things that they don't really want to do. Parents can counter it, if they're ready to help.
