Picks for Sept. 12

Most moms want to be proactive and don’t want to put off school shopping until the last minute. We wait in earnest anticipation for the […]

Jealousy Often the Cause of Sibling Rivalry

Question: Why do my kids have to fight all the time? I have three of them and they drive me crazy. Why can’t they be nice to each other? Dr. Dobson: Good question!
