Telling children that they have to leave their friends and school can be a delicate operation.
Wednesday, July 27, 2011
Moving can be traumatic for anyone. It can be especially traumatic for children, who have to leave friends, their school and sometimes, even family members. This week, the Tewksbury Patch Moms Council tackles this delicate subject. Question: If you have young children, how do you go about explaining to them that you are moving to a new new house and maybe a new town and leave everything they know? Answers: Lisa Spinelli-White -- I grew up moving around a lot and my daughter (and future kids) might wind up doing the same for a while too.

Fitness Q and A with a fitness coach.
Dear Fitness Coach, Recently married, my wife and I lead pretty hectic lives. Both our jobs entail travel, and between that and our commute to and from Boston we have little time or energy left for home cooking. We eat out a lot, and it’s finally taken its toll: within six months I have gained 20 pounds and my wife 12 pounds. Short of hiring our own personal chef, I am not sure what we can do, but this weight gain has got to stop. Humpty and Dumpty :) Dear H and D, You really do take a leap of faith eating in a restaurant, even if you think you are making healthy food choices. Whether it’s the drive-thru at BK or that trendy bistro in the North End, these establishments do not put your health interests first. The food is generally …
