Ex-etiquette: Divorce costs

Q. My wife is trying to get me to pay for all the divorce costs. We were married for two years. The wedding ring from our marriage is a family heirloom from my mother's side. I think my wife and I should split the cost of our divorce and when I told her that, she handed me the ring and said, "This should pay for anything I owe you." Our marriage didn't last, so I don't think she can put a monetary value on the ring. I think she should return it and pay for half the cost. What's good ex-etiquette?

How to choose an age-appropriate scary movie for your kid

Scariness comes from fear of the unknown, from surprise, and from fears about the loss of a loved one. Different things scare different children; it's not always possible to predict what will frighten a particular kid. Young kids are frightened more by creatures that older children know don't exist. Abrupt noises, eerie sounds, and music create tension in both younger and older children. Psychological suspense, with its threats of impending doom, can terrify your middle-school kids.

Moms Gear: Styling iron leaves hair straight, sleek and shiny

Want to feel like a professional when straightening your or your kid's hair? Try the Style House professional straightening iron. This 1.25-inch flat iron uses 100 percent ceramic plates that help to produce even, consistent heating when straightening the hair. Other flat irons may have metal plates with a ceramic coating on the outside, but that coating can wear off, and the metal underneath can cause damage to the hair.

Book review: 'Mr. Lemoncello's Great Library Race,' kids battle fake-news-posting villains in exciting mystery

Parents need to know that "Mr. Lemoncello's Great Library Race" is the third installment in bestselling author Chris Grabenstein's series aimed at showing kids the wonders of libraries. Like other books in the series, it's packed with book references, creative challenges, diverse characters, and over-the-top details (like a private jet shaped like a banana, or drone slippers that let the wearer fly). It's also a timely response to the growing problem of fake news and other internet falsehoods, offering a great how-to (disguised as a mystery adventure) for figuring out whether that shocking information you just read online has a shred of truth attached. A bit of fart humor (Whoopee Cushions play a minor role) and occasion butt/poop references aside, nothing to worry about here and a lot to like.
