Surviving the Turbulent Teens

Sarah Chana Radcliffe M.E.D., C. PSYCH ASSOC

Teenagers, as their parents will quickly tell you, are not simply older children. They are an entirely different breed with unique struggles, issues, and needs. What to expect, and how to help your teenager grow into a happy, healthy, responsible adult.

 

Moving Out … to Move In

Sarah Glazer

How do you manage living in a small house with a big family? Rather than move, Simi Friedman got creative. The ingenious systems she came up with can be implemented in any size house with any size family.

 

Hijacked to Health

As told to Chany Rosengarten

When Ressy hijacked me in her car, boy, did I kick up a fuss. Ressy is my wife, but that that doesn’t mean I follow her blindly. She has an obsession with health and a compulsion with nutrients and I must stay on guard. Mung beans are her potato chips. She visits the chiropractor like other women visit the spa. She spent thirty dollars — thirty — on an organic papaya. I guess, though, I should tell you why she bought it in the first place.
