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.

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
