    7 Things Teens Need To Know About Relationships

    Relationships get really interesting during the teen years. And I’m not just talking about romantic relationships (although, those get REALLY interesting) I’m talking about ALL relationships from friends to parents to siblings to teachers.

    But the one thing that is consistent about relationships is that they’re typically between two people and rely heavily on communication and interaction – which is not always easy for teens to process at this young(er) age. Watching my daughters struggle with dealing with some people and how they change in an instant, I thought it would be helpful to offer them some tips on dealing with people and relationships – no matter what level it’s on.

    How To Stop Your Kids From Catching Bieber Fever

    Belieb it or not, Justin’s behavior can be a big influence on your kids.

    I’d be lying if I said a big part of me wasn’t happy that my daughter has shown no signs of “Bieber fever”. Yet, she’s only four years old, so she does have a chance of catching the disease that research suggests is more infectious than the measles.

    I’m not kidding, researchers at the University of Ottawa, used mathematical models to conclude that Biebermania behaves like a real disease — one that is capable of turning into an “apocalyptic infection.” The symptoms include high-octane screaming, hysterics, and mimicking the star’s poor life decisions (like his haircut).
