Dr. Ducharme’s Blog August 25, 2014 Encouraging Creativity & Problem Solving… Letting Kids Be Kids

I have always loved kids. I love their honesty, their joy over the little things in life and their creativity. We have to be careful not to mess that up. We have to encourage them to be who they are and not just small adults.

Dr. Ducharme’s Blog July 28, 2014 The Chipmunk vs Tomato… War?

OK. My skills at coping with frustration are being tested this summer. I am not a gardener. But, I have been fortunate that for the last few summers I have been able to grow patio tomatoes. They were fabulous. Last summer, my husband and I must have had 50 tomatoes on one plant alone.

Dr. Ducharme’s Blog June 30, 2014 Boomerang Kids

I was watching the news the other day and was really struck by a story about adult kids moving back home. In the past I have written about this and the various issues that can arise for both parents and kids in this situation. But, the problem seems to be getting worse and the label Boomerang Kids has now taken hold.

Dr. Ducharme’s Blog June 23, 2014: Car Safety with Children

I published this blog last year. But, way too many children continue to die after being left in in a hot car. It is almost always accidental. Few people do this on purpose. And yet, it continues to happen.
