Reader applauds Drakeford’s support of Marketplace Fairness Act

I wish to applaud Councilwoman Alfred Mae Drakeford for her letter "Urges support for Marketplace Fairness Act." I agree wholeheartedly with everything she said. Ever since the state started requesting the total amount of out-of-state purchases be added to the state tax return, I have compiled and included this on my return. I keep a list of the out-of-state businesses and amount I spent during the year so the total will be given to the CPA who prepares my taxes.

Talk to, instead of punish, children when they lie

One lie, two lies, three lies. If your children are lying more after you have punished them for being dishonest, one problem may be that you need to talk to them instead.

Five signs your teen needs help

Parents everywhere wish there was some type of manual to help them raise their kids. The best strategy most have is their own upbringing or even advice from others. While this can be useful it has its limits because kids and our relationships with them are so varied.
