This week’s most popular posts, in case you missed them.

– Mayim’s Trip to the Twilight Premiere. Crazy security, Jaleel White from Family Matter’s, crying over Weird Al, and a sweet little boy from the Make-a-Wish Foundation. It was quite a night!

– Should My 8-Month-Old Already Be Competing? This mom’s baby is in swimming lessons, and she’s already wrestling with wanting him to succeed, and not wanting to pressure her kids into competition.

– How to Raise Mensches, Not Bullies. What’s the best way to ensure your kid won’t end up the nastiest one on the playground? Practice and teach empathy and kindness, so our children will learn from us how to put themselves in another’s place and be compassionate.

– Don’t Do Your Kids Homework. Teaching your kids to do their own work is a way of teaching them to be self-sufficient adults. So lay off those dioramas!
