One perk the researchers point out in sending your child to a high quality preschool before kindergarten is that they score better in vocabulary in fifth grade than those who had less quality care. But on the flip side the NIH funded study found that the more a child spent in daycare environment in their early years, they showed a higher chance later on in 6th grade of having behavior problems that teachers report. For example, the complaints were typically, “gets in many fights,” “disobedient at school,” and “argues a lot.” The study was first reported in the March/April issue of Child Development.

The researchers did say the behavior differences were relatively small, and a bigger factor lies on the quality of parenting that the child was exposed as they were growing up, even if they were in daycare.

Shalom in the Home - Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Yesterday Oprah discussed how Americans are spoiling their kids, and that it has a negative impact on them when they become an adult.

Oprah invited guest Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, who is on TLC channel’s “Shalom in the Home.” Rabbi Shmuley acts as a counselor to families that are not at peace, and works with the family to teach them how to work out their problems. Rabbi Shmuley is the author of many books including a book called, "Ten Conversations You Need to Have with Your Children." He is also the author of "Parenting With Fire: Lighting Up the Family with Passion and Inspiration" and "Shalom in the Home: Smart Advice for a Peaceful Life." He has also written a number of other books.

Oprah showed a family that Rabbi Shmuley worked with that had a young daughter named Hannah who was 9 years old at the time, and was throwing temper tantrums and demanding everything from her parents. Her mom would give into her daughter’s demands and tantrums, because it was easier than saying no. The father of Hannah was angry that his daughter was acting like this, and would often yell at her. Hannah began becoming demanding around the age of 3. The mother admits that she wanted to be Hannah’s best friend and not disciplinarian.

Spring is almost here

For most of the country, March means warmer weather and fewer clothes. Sweaters and coats are exchanged with short sleeves and shorts or skirts. Arms, legs, and body are exposed to the warmth of the sun - and the eyes of young men.

Parent's worries increase at the same rate their teen's clothing decreases. Telling our teen not to wear a particular outfit, not to dress so revealing, or to cover up will most likely be responded with: "It's the hottest thing this spring!" or "That's what today's teens wear!" - making us feel old and out of the loop.

Not everyone has the leadership abilities of Jack Welch or Steve Jobs, but there are some things everyone in a leadership position can do to improve their relationship with their team. Mutual respect is vital to a leader’s ultimate success so it is important that these six tips are followed by all leaders.

Coach Behind Closed Doors; Praise in Public
Good leaders realize a lot of their success is achieved through the help of others. Instinctively, they seem to understand that their accomplishments are due to their support group so they are careful not to publicly humiliate their valued contributors. Praising in public goes a long way toward instilling confidence in subordinates while coaching behind closed doors maintains the two-way respect built in the relationship. Mistakes are bound to be made but if a leader handles them professionally and appropriately, subordinates will continue to grow and prosper under the leader’s leadership. Remember the phrase “it may be a bad dog, but it’s my dog.”

Confucius, who had much stronger credentials than I will ever have, shared his thoughts on the subject of career change by remarking, "Find a calling you love and you will never work a day in your life." Unfortunately, few people ever find work that they truly love.

Working at your dream job may sound great, but nevertheless, too good to be true. Perhaps you need some good excuses — besides the ones you already have — to convince yourself that you can’t make the much needed career change to your dream job.

Luckily for you, I can help. I used to be an expert at making excuses and even earned my Masters in Excuse Making. Here are a few gems that even David Letterman would like:
