I like Gov. Phil Murphy, but he's making a liar out of me. Me and millions of parents. For a couple of generations now, mothers and fathers have been warning children about the dangers of pot smoking. Now the governor comes along and tells them there is no Santa Claus. I’ve been warning my children about pot for 20 years. That’s not exaggeration. It started when my 35-year-old was a middle schooler and continues right up today. Armed only with anecdotal evidence, what I call the "science of ...

Sure, you could go to the store and buy brand-new costumes and decorate your house like crazy, but it’s also a holiday you can do on a budget. Secondhand costumes purchased from Facebook swap groups? Check. Dollar store decorations? You betcha. Hitting up the free local trick-or-treating events? You can bet all of your Fun Size M&Ms ...

Your Family Matters

You know what needs to be said and done... but it is neither said nor done.  You are in the 'conflict avoidance' zone. Nobody wants to fight with their kids or spouse.  A little peace and quiet seems like a good thing, a desirable state of affairs.  Who doesn't want a hassle-free morning, an argument-free vacation, a quiet dinner, or a compliant child?  We all do; however, avoiding our inner wisdom and going for harmony often leads to bigger conflicts and problems later on.  Gratification in the short ...
