  • Metrolink tragedy puts parenting in a new light

    If I ever thought an "empty nest" at home meant an end to parenting, as I said in my newspaper column Saturday, the stories emerging from this weekend's coverage of the deadly Metrolink train crash painfully put that notion to rest: The 72-year-old...
  • Anxiety, an unwelcome side dish

    It's the Sunday before Thanksgiving, and I should be making a shopping list, clearing space in my refrigerator, rummaging through cabinets for my roasting pan. Instead, I'm still in my pajamas at 2 p.m., trying to muster the energy to wash the breakfast...
  • A family's resilience withstands the flames

    The beige French country-style home in the hills, with a distant view of the sea on blue-sky days, had been built to withstand California's best punches. Earthquake. Hurricane-force winds. Wildfire. I came upon the place while reporting in San Diego...

    Letting strangers live rent-free in his house: cool or crazy?

    Advice of 'Princeton Mom' reveals a mother talking to herself
    Remember "the Princeton Mom," who made a pariah of herself last year when she exhorted marriage-minded college women not to graduate without securing future husbands along with their diplomas? She's back in the media gestalt. She's back in the way that...

    Millennials rising

    Daum: Which comes first, husband or career?
    Maybe it's spring fever or maybe it's the centrifugal force from all that Sheryl Sandberg-led "leaning in," but it's been a big week for outrage about women and their place. On Friday, Princeton alumna and parent Susan A. Patton published a letter in...
  • Bad medicine

    In the it's-about-time department, the Food and Drug Administration is finally taking a close look at the scientific reality behind all those TV commercials showing snuffly, coughing toddlers whose symptoms are erased by doses of over-the-counter...
