I don’t know what the president’s job approval rating is today, but interest in having his job is at an all-time low. Just before the ’04 presidential election, ABC News and Weekly Reader found that half of the teens polled thought it was possible to grow up and become president -- but 80 percent had absolutely no interest in the job.

"Children need boooundarieees," child psychologists harangue in that sing-songy, whiny voice that annoys the crap out of me. "They need limits on what they're allowed to dooooo."I wholeheartedly agree. I am a firm believer in setting boundaries as a way to help children grow. My own kids have learned the Basic Rules for Getting Along in the Deckers' House: be respectful to others, never hit your siblings, and never, ever cheer against the Colts. After all, ...

Our homes, particularly in states like California, New York and Florida, are often our most valuable asset. Knowing that a house has turned into a personal ... [full story]

The day I flew into Miami, Fidel Castro had ceded power to his brother and all of Little Havana was dancing in the streets, celebrating news they had waited to hear for 47 years. Since Castro took control in 1959, nearly a million Cubans have left their native land, most settling in Miami, where they wait for the Old Country to welcome them home. But the younger generations raised in Florida have no memory of ... [full story]

College students returning to campus find a familiar scene:  closet-size dorm rooms, frat parties, and questionable food in the school cafeteria.  But on some campuses something is missing this year: men’s sports teams.
