I’d like some advice about how to talk to children about their own diagnosis with special needs (Asperger syndrome, autism, ADHD, etc). My son was recently diagnosed with ADHD and is testing now for Twice Exceptionality. It is still all pretty new to my husband and me so we haven't yet talked to our son specifically about it. He knows he has all this testing being done because he has had trouble in school but we haven't specifically told him his diagnosis and ...
Protein Tips From Egglands Best
March is National Nutrition Month, so we asked our sponsors at Eggland’s Best for tips about Protein and diet. Protein is an essential nutrient for our bodies for many reasons: it is the major structural component of all cells in our bodies, especially our muscles. Protein is needed to grow body tissue and repair body cells as they wear out, and to form blood cells. It is also important for energy output, muscle recovery and helping to prevent muscle loss in athletes and those who engage in exercise regularly ...

Mirror Mirror is a spectacular reimagining of the classic fairy tale starring Oscar® winner Julia Roberts as the Queen, Lily Collins (The Blind Side) as Snow White, Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as Prince Alcott, Sean Bean ("The Game of Thrones", The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) as the King and Nathan Lane (The Lion King, The Birdcage) as the Queen's hapless and bungling servant, Brighton.
An evil queen steals control of a kingdom and an exiled princess enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright in a spirited adventure comedy filled with jealousy, romance and betrayal that will capture the imagination of audiences the world over.
Visionary director Tarsem Singh (Immortals) rewrites fairy tale history as a wicked enchantress (Roberts) schemes and scrambles for control of a spirited orphan's (Collins) throne and the attention of a charming prince (Hammer). When Snow White's beauty wins the heart of the prince that she desperately pursues, the Queen banishes her to the forest, where a ravening man-eating beast hungrily awaits.
Rescued by a band of diminutive highway robbers, Snow White grows into an indomitable young woman determined to take back her realm from the treacherous Queen. With the support of her subjects, she roars into action in an epic battle that blends spectacle, magic and contemporary humor in Singh's signature, jaw-dropping visual style. The film is distributed by Relativity Media, a Macaroni Kid sponsor & supporter.
When GM offered me the chance to drive a new GMC Yukon Denali for a week while the kids were on Winter break, I jumped at the chance. I had already planned a road trip from New York to Maryland and thought that would be a great way to really test out the vehicle.
First let me say I’m not the type of guy who “geeks out” on things like horsepower, towing capacity and cubic inches, so if you’re looking for that type of stuff, check out GMC ...

A Movie that Shows How it Takes More Than Love to Make a Baby
If lately all the movies you’ve seen have involved cartoon talking animals, perhaps you’re feeling a little starved for some more grown-up content. If the idea of another children’s movie makes you want to scream, we’ve got a solution for you. Enter CONCEPTION, the clever romantic comedy about nine couples on the night they conceive, showing that it takes more than love to make a baby. From a couple fighting the odds of fertility, young teenagers losing their virginity, a couple making the steps to use ...
Getting tired of the same old recipes? Spice things up a bit with new Equal Sucralose!
Equal Sucralose Granulated is a great tasting, zero calorie sweetener used for cooking and baking and comes at a great value. It contains sucralose which is the same ingredient used in Splenda(R). It stays sweet in high temperatures and measures cup-to-cup like sugar.
Equal Sucralose comes in an easy-to-store carton. Much easier than the messy bags. It stores nicely into your pantry and makes measuring for recipes a breeze.
Using Equal is also ...
