We get so angry when we try to set what we think is a reasonable curfew, and our kids argue about it, or worse, come in just a little later. They keep testing us. Is there any way to make this curfew thing work?
My son’s first-grade teacher gives a test called “Mad Math Minutes.” Each morning, the children are given one minute to complete 30 problems. If they miss a problem, none of the others after that are counted, even if they are right. This doesn’t seem fair. My son gets so nervous before these tests. Is this a good way to learn math?

Even a quick search for health care information on the Internet will produce a number of World Wide Web sites that reference best practices. The sites are generally hosted or sponsored by some entity, including health care organizations (hospitals, HMOs, PHOs, etc.), universities (medical schools, health science libraries, clinical departments), providers (individual physicians, specialty membership organizations, national and state medical societies), government agencies (libraries, departments of state and federal institutions), information technology experts (consulting firms, vendor organizations, membership associations), patient advocacy groups (self-help organizations, disease-specific organizations), and business experts (consultants, trade associations). The pharmaceutical industry also sponsors a large number of such sites.
