Photo: Lopolo (Shutterstock) One of the toughest parts about being a parent is parenting while sick. Unlike work, where, at least in theory, you can take a day off to rest and recover, parenting is a round-the-clock job, where you are the back-up option, illnesses be damned. Add in the gazillion illnesses your kids bring home to you from daycare, and parenting turns into a nonstop blur of keeping your kids alive while also surviving the latest nasty virus. The first major sickness my son […]

Photo: Ken Wolter (Shutterstock) In Great Britain, they used to call the summer months “the silly season” because of the frivolous news stories that would populate the media due to the lack of “real” news. It seems to work the same way with young people on the internet: Summer is the silly season, so all of these stories are ridiculous. What is #Krissing? Rickrolling has been around since 2006, so it’s about time for the young people to come up with a replacement. One attempt, […]

The FDA’s advisory panel voted Wednesday to grant emergency use authorization to both Pfizer’s and Moderna’s vaccines for children aged 6 months and up. What’s next, and when can my kids get their shots? There are a few more regulatory steps before the vaccines will be available.

Photo: The Image Party (Shutterstock) When you become a parent, you quickly realize the importance of sleep, mostly because your kids (and by extension, you) just aren’t getting enough of it. Between the struggle to get your kids to fall asleep at bedtime and the regular nighttime wakings, sleep quickly becomes the one thing you crave more than anything else. When nothing else seems to work, parents will often turn to melatonin as a way to help their kids fall asleep a little faster and […]

9 Things Our Parents Did That We Should Absolutely Bring Back

Photo: Everett Collection (Shutterstock) Back in the day—which for our purposes, we’ll define as the 1980s and ‘90s—parents operated differently. The opposite of “helicopter parents,” they were peak free range, letting their kids ride bikes for hours around the neighborhood, flit from house to house and yard to yard, drink from garden hoses, and only come home when they were hungry or the street lights came on. Kids faced much less structure and supervision, and it was glorious. While it wouldn’t be prudent to bring […]

Nothing can ruin your elaborate gardening plans like seeing the remains of your tender seedlings eaten through down to the nibs. Unfortunately, slugs are notoriously hard to control without using pesticides that are damaging to other helpful creatures like bees or causing danger to pets and kids. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to keep them off your veggie sprouts while keeping the […]

And you wouldn’t be alone. The rapidly expanding trend saw a growth of 42% in 2021 among Americans with traditional […]

Photo: Alice Day (Shutterstock) Southern cooks—or, more accurately, Southern eaters—have a lot of opinions about a lot of foods. Even if you don’t make the grits, fish, or beans, you probably have thoughts about how they should be prepared. Biscuits are particularly good at generating debate—even something as simple as the shape can cause friction. The circle is traditional, but champions of square biscuits argue that right angles are less wasteful, as cutting biscuits into circles generates scraps, and reshaping those scraps can make them […]

It’s completely normal, but it’s also important that you address it with your partner. Everything seems better at the beginning of a relationship, but especially the sex. Impromptu romps in the sack are the norm as you and your partner are excited to explore each other’s bodies. You’re never too tired or bored either—you’re almost always in the mood. But now you’ve hit a drought. Maybe you’re stressed and busy or maybe you’ve hit a rough patch with your partner and your timing is off. […]

Photo: fizkes (Shutterstock) Kids these days are rediscovering hit songs from the 80s, and I’m not complaining. More specially: Netflix’s Stranger Things has sent Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)” back to the top charts nearly 30 years after its initial release. For modern viewers who didn’t already know the iconic ballad, but knew they needed to add it to all their playlists, finding out the specific song information must have taken all but two seconds. For more obscure shows and […]

Screenshot: Twitter: /fyrishere (Fair Use) Youth pop culture has its peaks and valleys, and this week is a definite valley.

Come on, Youth of America, entertain me with scandals, dangerous TikTok challenges, and impossibly complex memes, already! Here’s what’s going on during this slow week.

I was driving a minivan full of kids ages 6 to 8 to school, and traffic was unusually heavy on this particular morning. A few minutes later, one of the kids noticed the same trucker was flipping off another car, which caused […]

Photo: Daniel Waters (Shutterstock) If you have kids, you likely have way too many toys. Even if you don’t buy many, there’s a seemingly constant influx of grandparent gifts, birthday and Christmas presents, goody-bag swag, and hand-me-down toys from neighbors and friends. It can make for a very crowded, cluttered playroom. (And kitchen, and family room, and basement…because all toys inevitably migrate). When your little ones have finally outgrown them (or trashed them to the point they no longer work), the question becomes, what do […]

Photo: Laurence Nozik (Shutterstock) There are plenty of things we use or engage in as children that have entirely practical applications once you’ve ‘grown up.” Exhibit A: Night lights, those little lights you plug into the wall, soaking a room or hallway with dim, soothing light. Night lights are usually associated with little kids who are scared of the dark, which means most of us repudiate them once we see ourselves as adults (or at least adult-ish). The association between night lights and fussy babies […]
