The Family Project: Day-care support

Friday, March 30, 2018 by CAROLE GORNEY in Focus

Q. I am a single mother of a four-month-old. I just got a job, but I am still living day-to-day, and I do not have money for child-care. I am relying on friends and acquaintances, which I know is not the safest thing for my baby, but I am not sure what else to do. I do not have family around to help. What can I do?

The panel agreed that the first message to the mother should be, “Good for you.” They praised her for getting a job, taking care of her child and being so aware that what she is doing is not the safest solution for the baby.

Respectfully Yours: gym etiquette

Friday, March 30, 2018 by JACQUELYN YOUST in Focus

I recently joined a gym for the first time and am feeling very self-conscious. Are there gym etiquette rules that I should know so I don’t embarrass myself?

Dear Reader, Even at a gym, rules of etiquette should be followed. Sure, the social graces expected in a gym are a bit different from those expected at a formal dinner or wedding, but manners are important just the same.

Sunny news about sunlight

Friday, March 30, 2018 by FRED CICETTI in Focus

First of two parts

Q. All I ever hear about the sun is how dangerous it is. But, when I was a child, my mother used to tell me to get out in the sun and play. Did my mother give me bad advice?

Most public-health messages focus on the hazards of too much sun exposure. Ultraviolet (UV) rays, an invisible component of sunlight, can cause skin damage, cataracts, wrinkles, age spots, and skin cancer.

But there is some sunny news about the sun.
