tattAs Linda Cosby drove her 14 year-old son, Alan, to an open house for incoming high school freshmen, she was brimming with enthusiasm. That is, until Alan started issuing orders from the passenger seat of the car.

“Mom, don’t stand near me or talk to me and my blends,” Alan instructed. “Do not suggest fun activities that you think I should do. In Fact, just pretend like you don’t know me.”

Linda’s high spirits collapsed faster than a souffle in a draft. “I thought, Why am I even here? It was very hurtful,” says Cosby, 50, of Glenview, Illinois. “If an adult had treated me that way, I’d have written her off. But you can’t do that with your kid.”

The surly teen may he a cliche, but that doesn’t make things any less painful when the teen is yours. You’re humming along, feeling pretty good about your parenting skills, when boom–you can’t do anything right. Your most benign remark is met with eye-rolling and sarcasm. And your once sweet and cooperative child regards your very existence as a source of humiliation.

This “stay away, Mom” stage is especially disconcerting to baby boomer moms and dads. We always assumed that our cutting-edge taste in music, movies, and clothes would spare us from the same contempt in which we held our

Snoring needn't be a lifetime problem.

Snoring needn’t be a lifetime problem.

Good morning snore solution reviews have been very helpful in making the product very popular among people who either want to put a stop to their snoring problem or the snoring problem of a family member. However, there is still a need to understand why snoring problems actually do exist. Knowing so will only help you to appreciate Good Morning Snore Solution even more.

So why do people snore?

Basically, snoring is caused when there is partial blockage of airflow in either the nasal or oral cavity. This blockage may either be because of muscles in the throat or tongue being relaxed or excessive tissues in the throat or even due to colds or allergies.

To be more specific, when a person has colds or allergies then there is difficulty in breathing caused by clogged nasal passages. This clogging of the nasal passages can then contribute to a snoring problem.

Another situation is for someone who is overweight. Being overweight, there is the fact that excessive tissue develops and it is possible that excessive tissue develops even in the throat area thereby being another cause of snoring problems.

A final sample situation is when someone is intoxicated. Since alcohol is a depressant and a muscle relaxant, drinking alcohol before going to bed results to relaxed muscles in the oral cavity and again contributes to snoring problems.

Stop Snoring, Got Natural, Logical

Stop snoring products are becoming more popular and more brands are coming up. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that these products provide the only solution to stopping snoring. In fact, even before these products were developed, these natural solutions have actually been around.

One of these natural solutions is to switch sleeping positions. Instead of lying on your back, you can lie on your side. The logic behind this is lying on your back makes your tongue and soft palate sag backward to your throat thereby blocking your airway and you know the rest. So positioning yourself in a way that will prevent your tongue and soft palate from doing so will help prevent snoring.

Another option is to lose weight. When people gain weight they develop excessive tissue and this excessive tissue may develop in the throat area. Because of this excessive tissue, there is the tendency that the air passage narrows and airflow is obstructed. Therefore, the logical solution is to lose weight, basically lose the excessive tissue.

The third solution is to practice good sleep hygiene. The effect of “bad” sleep hygiene is like after consuming alcohol. All your muscles want to do is relax and when this happens, so do muscles in your oral cavity relax, including your tongue and so it’s soft and floppy that it sags back and again blocks your air passage.

Twenty-three years ago, she took her own life. But looking back isn’t about pain anymore. It’s about honoring the fact that this fine woman lived.

There’s a packet of letters tied with a ribbon in the bottom drawer of my dresser,” I tell my son on the phone, “under the quilted glove box.”

I am in San Francisco, the city where my best friend killed herself 23 years ago. It’s been almost a quarter of a century since then, but suddenly I want her old address. I want to see where it happened.

My friend is but a shadow now.

My friend is but a shadow now.

We met when we were 12, the year my family moved from New York City to the suburbs. We liked each other right away. Both of us annoyed people by always asking “Why?” We asked each other “Why?” a lot too. Our favorite sentence was: “What does it mean?” We were going to be painters.

WHEN SOMETHING TRULY TERRIBLE happens, the way you feel about it changes. It changes because you and the world around you change. Your feelings about it keep changing too. You go through phases. I didn’t know that when my friend died.

The call came at 5:30 on a Sunday morning. I was married and living in New York City, seven months into my first pregnancy.…

The whole thing leaves me spooked. My friend Karen and I walk silently out of the theatre. “That guy really looked like Daniel,” I finally say. “Yeah,” Karen replies in a solemn, I-wish-it-wasn’t-true tone, “I know.” Obviously, the suicide packed a mean punch that I, and most of the audience, had not anticipated-though foreshadowing details are in fact littered throughout the film, as I discovered when, out of curiosity, I rented the video recently. Unlike life, you can view a movie again, fast-forwarding and rewinding to your heart’s content, seeing what you may have missed, confirming or discarding your suspicions.

Dick makes at least two references to Kurt Cobain in the course of the film. One song on the soundtrack is called “Suicide Club,” another, “Something Is Gonna Die Tonight.” During an over-the-top group acid trip at the secluded country house of a burnt-out punk icon named Bucky Haight, there’s a half-second flash of Dick putting a gun to his head, and during the final performance, he makes the gesture again. Hard to imagine that the final outcome of all of this would be such a surprise, but suicide can really be like that. Besides, the world of punk-and a good portion of modern and postmodern art, music, and literature aimed at and emanating from people under 30-are utterly ruled …
