On the brink of insolvency, Social Security needs major revamping, whether it comes in the form of benefit reductions, tax increases or both.

Phillips: The entitled generation

In what could be considered an extension of my column from last week, which was about the misuse and abuse of government programs such as "food stamps," EBT cards and welfare, I've been giving the matter a lot of thought on a broader scale.

How to love so deeply that you'll never lose your sweetheart

Success in any relationship depends on whether or not you're able to hear unspoken language. For example, does your girl want you to open the door for her as a grand gesture of chivalry, or would she rather do it herself to assert her feminine strength and independence? Do a dozen red roses tell her you love her, or would she rather have a single daisy from your backyard? Now, you may not see the difference (although the daisy sure costs a lot less), but she sees small subtleties, picking up a distinct message.

How your weight loss habits are making your kids fat

Like many parents, you’ve considered the importance of setting a good example for your kids in many areas of your life, but are your dieting habits detrimental to your children’s health and well-being? Current diet culture promotes unhealthy extremes and poor body image, polarizing food as “good” or “bad" — and this is incredibly damaging to a child’s ability to develop a healthy or normal relationship with food. The Framingham Children's Study showed that children whose parents showed the highest levels of restrictive dieting followed by post-diet overeating were most likely to be overweight compared to children ...

In the interest of full disclosure, my toddler is running around half-dressed and screaming for milk right now. And, I literally mean right now.

5 ways to destroy your child's confidence

It goes without saying that frequently calling children "stupid" "lazy" or "bad" can do major damage over time to their self-esteem. When a parent uses negative labels such as these, a child can lose confidence in his or her abilities or innate worth.
