Kids love opening birthday and holiday gifts, but they don't always think about thanking the giver. We asked readers how to get that message across, and what is more appropriate - a formal note, a phone call, an e-mail? Or will the face-to-face thanks suffice? From Charlotte Gerry, San Diego:  GRATITUDE ATTITUDE - Some people believe that a child's reaction is thanks enough for a gift and these days a written thank-you note is unnecessary. ... [full story]

Few boomers have given enough thought to where they will live beyond middle age, says Robert N. Butler, founder of the Manhattan-based International Longevity Center. "They are not prepared for anything," Butler said of the roughly 78 million Americans born from 1946 to 1964. "They don't have any money. They have an average of $40,000 in a 401(k), if they have one at all. The boomers are not prepared for old age and society is ... [full story]

(PART 1 OF A 2-PART FEATURE) Julia Jointer parked the pickup and hustled through the icy rain into her mother's neat South Peoria, Ill., ranch, its windows festively lit for the holiday season. Without a word, she walked right by her mother, ignoring the judgment on her face, and by her two sons, who shifted their eyes as if pretending not to see. She went straight into her bedroom, shut the door and locked it.   HEROIN'S HOLD ... [full story]

Q: My mother-in-law is convinced that our dog has worms and that our children are being exposed to worms because our dog occasionally scoots her rear end along the carpet. She - that is, our dog - also occasionally bites at her tail so vigorously that she nearly passes out. We have treated our dog for worms several times with medications that we bought at our pet store. I am pretty sure that our dog ... [full story]

Just whether you consider turning 70 as a day to remember or a day to forget depends on your outlook. This happily married couple looks at that big birthday through decidedly different eyes. Today, we present Kate's take on aging and next time, Joe will offer his vision. The floor is all yours, Kate: Next September, I will become 70.

THE INSPIRATION "I do not like them in a box. I do not like them with a fox. I do not like them in a house. I do not like them with a mouse. I do not like them here or there. I do not like them anywhere. I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam-I-am." So says the morose and irritable friend who refuses to eat Sam's favorite ... [full story]

Most of us - adults, children and teenagers - take the teen years for granted. We think of them as angst and zits and dates and driving. Young children can't wait until they're 13; parents dread the thought. As for the actual state of teen-dom, or adolescence, it's such a part of the culture that familiar mythologies - from fads and fashions to music and marketing - have grown up around succeeding generations of American ...

America celebrates her 400th anniversary in 2007, yet it can be arresting to realize that while a small band of Englishmen put down the nation's first root at Jamestown Fort in 1607, indigenous civilizations had already flourished for centuries on the other side of the continent. One scenic and living remnant of those ancient American Indian groups now includes a new culture stop an hour's drive west of Albuquerque. Nearby touring bonuses include natural wonders ...

Q: We recently noticed that our dog has flaky skin. It seems like she is constantly dropping dandruff and scaly skin pieces on us. We wonder if this problem is caused by the dry heat that our dog is exposed to nearly all of the time now that the weather outside is usually cold and miserable. We do not notice this problem in the summer. We also wonder if her dog food or vitamins are ... [full story]

A colleague revealed recently that his wife persuaded him to buy a long-term care insurance policy event though he wasn't keen on the idea. She was petrified that one day, she would need help and didn't want her husband to spend all their assets on her care. Both her parents had succumbed after long bouts with Alzheimer's disease. Our colleague isn't the only one with long-term care insurance on his mind. Many 50- and 60-year-olds ... [full story]

Erika Banina grimaced as she attempted an immobilizing grip on her son Jonathan, who thrashed on her lap fighting against both the unwelcome restraint and whatever demons inhabit his mysteriously wired brain. "No, mommy, no, mommy, no, mommy, no, mommy," Jonathan, who is 4, screamed repeatedly. "Why? Why? Why?" Erika cried softly - almost imperceptibly - and blew out an attempt at a calming breath as she held on with all her strength. The reason ... [full story]

May an elderly person who has not committed a crime be incarcerated in a mental facility indefinitely unless and until such time he agrees to take drugs prescribed by a state psychiatrist? And what if the committed person’s objection to taking drugs is based upon his allegiance to Christian Science, which professes that ills of the flesh are healed through prayer and faith in God rather than traditional medicine? Or, what if the person objects ... [full story]
