When is it the least harmful for kids to divorce?

Our kids are 2 and 5. Their mom and I have a marriage that is clearly only lasting because we both love our kids so much and they need us. That said, we do NOT fight, either in front of the kids or alone. We just have a big ol' blank where the love used to be. On a daily basis we just basically ignore each other as much as possible and focus our energies on the kids. I do not foresee this lasting forever. However: When to break up? [more inside]

Allergy Treatment for Kids

I've heard about a woman outside of Boston who cures kids' allergies by starting with an infinitesimal amount of the allergen, and slowly exposing the body to greater amounts, until the allergy is overcome. A similar process was used in a study at Duke recently. Is there anyone else in the USA using this process (successfully) to treat/cure kids' allergies, that you know of?

Help me keep my cool with my kid

Have you successfully stopped yelling at your children? I hate myself for yelling. I am in therapy, and I'm a self-reflective person. I'm also very stressed at work, a single parent, and often overwhelmed, without a real support system. My ex-husband went back to his native Iran, re-married a local woman and does not contribute financially any more. That's another story, but the point is I don't have a lot of help. I am in therapy and work on my parenting and my deeper reasons for being frustrated, all the time. I vow to stop yelling. And then I yell again. [more inside]
