Dispatches from Angst-Land
Our moving day is coming up like a freight train. All of my kids are taking it pretty well, but it's still such a time of upheaval. My 6-year-old is confused and upset about her big sister going off to college. My college-age girl is a little traumatized by her whole family moving just as she's leaving home for the first time—it's one thing to leave, and another to not have your old room waiting for you, right? I'd love to hear from all of you about how you've helped your kids through a big move.
Cognitive Errors in Adolescence
Teenagers are often called young adults, but their brain development and their life experiences don't always mesh up. As a result, adolescents often have errors in their cognitive behaviors.

Distracted driving is a leading cause for traffic fatalities in the US, and teenage drivers are the age group most likely to engage in this behavior. The US Department of Transportation has a website full of information and tools to help your adolescent driver understand the risks involved.
