Myers: Sometimes, a little boost is all we need

The other day, Chloe was trying to get into a chair so she could sit in it "like a big girl." Unfortunately for her, she wasn't as big a girl as she thought she was.

Thompson: Craving some pumpkin carving? Have I got a tip for you ...

Well, it's time for my SUPERSIZED Halloween tips column. This is my biggest column of the year and I've got a lot of great Halloween tips. Most of them are on how to have a great jack-o-lantern. However, I've also added some on Halloween in general. Look for me when you're out trick-or-treating. This year I'm going as a "duct tape mummy." (What can I say, I love duct tape almost as much as I love Halloween). Have fun and be careful out there!

Lunch guys: Sandwich at Sonic is truly a mouthful

Everyone seems to think making a cheesesteak is as easy as making a ham sandwich. That's why we Lunch Guys have seen franchises from Quiznos to Dominos try their hand at "cheesesteak" lunches - and flounder where Philadelphians flourish.

Rosemond: Preschool might be beneficial distraction

Question: Our family just moved to a new city and my 2 1/2-year-old son won't do anything during the day but follow me around. If I give him something to play with while I unpack boxes, he ignores what I've given him and starts messing with things he knows he's not supposed to touch, like my computer. If I move from one room to another, he moves with me, asking me question after question or getting into everything. Should I try some form of punishment or just cater to his clinginess for the time being?

Myers: Parents, listen to your kids while they’re still talking to you

I once heard a story about a little girl who walked into the living room, where her father sat reading the newspaper. She stopped in front of him and started recounting her day's events. Every couple of seconds, from behind the wall of the newspaper, she would hear him mumble things like "Mmm-hmm," "Really?" and "That's nice," but she could tell he wasn't really paying her any attention.

Thompson: Be careful with chain saw — or try a ‘Lopper’

I was in a meeting last week with a friend when I noticed a serious cut on his arm with quite a few stitches. I asked him how he had hurt himself and he said with an electric chain saw. He had been cutting limbs off of his crepe myrtles by holding the chain saw in one hand and grabbing branches with his other hand. OK, at this point in the story I need to point out that my friend isn't a redneck. He legitimately was trying to find an easy way to cut the limbs that were actually ...
