Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

865557386_eb9f3c83be_6
It’s prime playground season and overly-excited kids will always end up getting out of hand at some point—including the ones that don’t belong to you. Ever been in a situation where your kid’s playmate misbehaved in your presence? Maybe he wouldn’t give your child’s toy back, maybe she teamed up with your kid for a sufficiently dangerous wrestling match, or maybe he simply forgot to say, “please.” Whatever the situation, big or small, we want to know how you handled it—when did you say something, and when did you keep quiet? Post your story in the comments and it might end up in Parents!

Be In Parents: Tell Us Your Tricks For Dealing With Separation Anxiety

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

668326457_1d0f7e84cbIt’s a good sign that your baby is so terribly attached to you that she cries whenever you leave the room, much less drop her off at daycare. But when she’s screaming and you’re feeling guilty about trying to rush out, don’t you wish you had a magic wand that would make her calm down and forget about you for a moment?

So, we’re wondering: Do you have any clever methods for dealing with this stressful stage? Post a comment and you could be in an upcoming issue of Parents magazine!

Be in Parents: Choosing a Baby Name

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

Choosing a name for your baby has got to be one of the hardest decisions you’ll make. It’s something that your offspring will live with for the rest of their lives! My parents, thankfully, did a phenomenal job. I love my name—but I’m bummed that there’s no real "story" behind it. I think my mom read a book with a character named Janna and said BINGO! The end. No Name Voyager research, no arguing, and no lists. And she doesn’t even remember what book it was!

So what’s your story? How did you come up with your baby names? Leave a comment and you could be in an upcoming issue of Parents magazine.

Be in Parents: Do Your Kids Nap in Peculiar Places?

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

Sleepinggirl
Easter weekend at Grandma and Grandpa’s meant all the kids in the family were worked up, fighting off naptime, and terribly tired late in the day. Impromptu napping eventually struck, leaving snoozing toddlers strewn all over the place: under the dinner table, on the dog’s bed, in the hallway, even with one hand in the Easter basket.

So we’re wondering: Where is the strangest place your child has ever fallen asleep? Post a comment and your story might end up in Parents magazine!
