Lori Borgman: Freedom to make a mess? Naturally

The story of choice for one wing of the grandkids right now is "Peter Rabbit" by Beatrix Potter. Part of the attraction is the sheer scandal of it all. Every time an adult reads the story, the kids exude wide-eyed disbelief that a bunny disobeyed his mother (gasp!), ventured into Mr. McGregor's garden (gasp!) and safely made it home again (the sweet exhale).


Ask Mr. Dad: Handling a child's back-to-school anxieties

Dear Mr. Dad: School is starting and my 11-year-old daughter is pretty stressed out. She's always excited about the new school year and she'd been talking all summer about how much she was looking forward to school, but all of a sudden, she's saying she doesn't want to go. What can I do to help her?
