Many of us remember waking up with excitement to some change under the pillow, making the loss of that front tooth and the accompanying lisp all worth it. Does the tooth fairy visit your kids? Has the payment increased since you were a child?

There isn?t any better time than Halloween to pay tribute to the ghosts of our childhood past. Becoming a parent provides the unique opportunity to revisit these ghosts and see them in a whole new way. What do I mean by this? Many of us struggle with images from our childhood [...]

We all know that spanking is frowned upon. Spank your child in public, or give them one swat too many in the privacy of your own home, and you may find yourself in trouble with the authorities. So out of frustration of not being able to chastise children parents have turned to yelling.

I have just come from our therapist?s office and am feeling much calmer. You read that right: Dr. Joan is in therapy.

You know the drill: You give your child an ultimatum -- "Get dressed or we're staying home!" -- and naturally she says, "Okay, we'll stay home!" Might as well plant a big "L" on your forehead. We all see our discipline efforts backfire on occasion (hey, you're tired!), and of course there are those battles just not worth fighting (no kid ever flunked preschool because his teeth were furry).

By the time you hear your child's early-morning stirrings, you've probably already worked out for 90 minutes, meditated for 30, and enjoyed a healthy, balanced breakfast, which of course included a low-fat pomegranate smoothie. Why, there's nothing left to do besides jog happily over to your beloved offspring's room, sweep him out of bed, and shower him with all the joyous light, wonder, and oneness you're feeling with the universe.

It would sure beat being woken by a frantic first-grader five minutes before you need to be at the bus stop. Happily, there is a lot you can do to boost your stamina, aside from the basics we all strive for.
