by Helen Rosengren Freedman - March 09, 2006

Most parents wouldn’t consider moving the family car an inch without the kids safely buckled up.

'Two Mothers. Two Worlds. One Goal.'
by Helen Rosengren Freedman - March 09, 2006

Almost every day brings news of another devastating attack in the Middle East. Sadly, we respond with resignation: “There will never be peace there.”

The Consumer Experts tackle a growing problem - When kids are anxious and depressed
by Helen Rosengren Freedman - February 14, 2006

If ADD was the catchcry of the ‘90s, anxiety and depression are the health concerns that mark our current times. Anti-anxiety/anti-depressant medications, once prescribed sparingly and only for adults, are being given to kids in record numbers, and most adolescents can make a long list of their classmates on Zoloft, Paxil, and the like. Kids go off to college and are home before the end of first semester — “depressed”.

This is the kind of stuff adored by SpongeBob Square Pants fans. And Wyndham resorts hasn’t missed a beat. They have SpongeBob, Nickelodeon’s hottest cartoon character, as their current mascot.

Bal Harbour Bellissima!

On the ocean, halfway between Fort Lauderdale and Miami (each is roughly a 30-minute drive away), Bal Harbour residents like to compare their little piece of paradise with locations on the French Riviera.

Who wouldn’t like her? Jamie Lee Curtis on Image and Inspiration
by Helen Rosengren Freedman - December 21, 2002

Jamie Lee Curtis is a mom just like the rest of us (more on that later, doubters). She gets inspired by the cute things her kids come out with. In the case of her latest children’s book, it was her goddaughter who provided the impetus. Jamie sent her a dress for her birthday, and the happy youngster ran to the mirror, held the dress up in front of her, and declared: “I’m going to like me!” This was enough to send Jamie Lee into self-esteem heaven, a subject she knows well from the hellish point of view.
