s. c. asks from Oskaloosa

My 11 year old with ADHD recently found a game that had online chatting and had begun chatting with users. (*I monitor his tablet use closely and shut it down after only a few minutes) Normally we don't download games that have multiplayer modes at all, but I missed this...

Does anyone out there hate their name?

B. F. asks from Newark

In doing so, one of the things we learned right away was that our little peanut LOVES juice. However, I really wanted to avoid store bought juice packed full of sugar and processed junk, so instead, I decided to try juicing for her at home.

I had no idea if she’d like the juices I made from scratch, but I was hopeful and figured it was worth a shot…. More
