Are there any video games on your holiday shopping list? If so, I'm here to help you pick the right ones!
I remember a few years ago, I really wanted a copy of the new Super Mario game. My mom ended up getting me Mario Paint instead. It was pretty cool and I still liked having a new game, but it just wasn't the same. Probably because I wanted to fight Koopa troopas, and Mario Paint is based on making music that sounds like pop songs (for example, Katy Perry's Hot n'Cold composed only with sounds from the Mushroom Kingdom).
But I digress.
The point is that there are a lot of games coming out...

Standing on the sidelines of the soccer field I realize that I am now an official "soccer mom." But I don't think I'm the woman whom political strategists appealed to into the 1996 elections when they first coined the term. I don't drive a mini van. I don't wear mom jeans. I did not leave a yuppie career in the 1980’s to raise my children.
Looking around, I realize that all of the moms beside me were still in school during the 1980’s. Did we have any idea of what we were in for? It’s suddenly clear that the term “soccer mom” needs an immediate update, almost as critically as my computer...
When standard ways of finding a man prove unsuccessful, many women might try the Internet. While Internet dating can be an effective way to find the perfect partner for you, it has some safety risks. Don't let your online quest for love leave you suffering ill consequences- take caution when seeking the man of your dreams in cyberspace.
Just as some financial scam artists make a fortune from email-based schemes, Internet dating sites can also lead you into the clutches of a less-than-reputable fellow. An ABC News report described unsavory individuals looking...
A very high percentage of men view porn online.
This is not a shocking revelation for many of us, and it’s legal and their free choice. This is not a blog about men and pornography (although we do have plenty to say on that topic). This is a blog about dads, pornography, the Internet and their children.

A parent who has been through the KidSafe program...
Have you seen one of these square shaped barcode-looking things on a billboard or magazine advertisement? Called QR codes, they're popping up everywhere - from posters and products to T-shirts and even dog collars!
What is a QR Code?
QR is short for Quick Response - mostly because they can be read quickly by a phone or mobile device.
It's a two-dimensional barcode full encoded information like a URL (web address), text, or other information. For example, it could contain a special coupon or details about an upcoming movie release.
How Does it Work?
The QR code is a lot like a bar code. In...
Do you ever wonder how your kids can waste hours browsing the Internet, checking Facebook and religiously watering their crops on Farmville? They might be addicted to their computer.
Internet addiction is a growing problem that can seriously harm your kids. When researchers at the University of Maryland asked college students to refrain from using the Internet and other social media for 24 hours, the students began to show withdrawal signs similar to those experienced by people who try to quit smoking.
This isn’t news to computer programmers. They have been trying to make their games as...
