When a new puppy or kitten "marks a spot" in your house, it's important to get the smell out. One of the best ways to do this is to apply vinegar. Just make sure to test the vinegar on a small, hidden area first to make sure that it won't harm your carpet or wood finish.

Your father’s hand gives you safety, balance

Chloe is fascinated by the steep hill we have in our backyard. She likes nothing more than to walk down it, then back up it, repeating the process several times over. I have to admit it helps in getting her tired out before bedtime, and I often use that to my advantage.

Rosemond: Parents need to stay on course to teach kids

American parents believe in behavior modification. They believe that the same principles that govern the behavior of a rat or a dog also govern the behavior of a human being.
