Saying you are sorry at any age

My niece and son (who are the same age) recently spent a week together in the same house during a family vacation. It was a bit of a social experiment, as they are both incredibly smart but have wildly different personalities.

Kids and Cleaning -- Old fashioned methods that work

Back when I was growing up, our home was always clean. I don't mean tidy. I mean practically white-glove-test-clean. Some used to call my mother "The White Tornado."

There is now a happiness equation

Whenever I used to ask my mother what she wanted for a birthday or Christmas, she would always answer the same thing: "Nothing." If pressed, she would tell me that all she wanted was for us to be happy.
