Hold off on fertilizing lawn

It’s that time again. The time of the year when the sun shines for a few days and the temperature begins to warm up.
Sometimes I wonder if there isn’t some biological function within the human body that causes us to have this obsession with yard work as soon as the sun begins to warm things up.

A fellow in West Virginia asks, “My wife and I need to agree concerning our children. She sees things one way, and I see things a completely — and I mean completely — different way. How can we get on the same page?”
This is certainly the most serious and common of child-rearing problems. I suspect — but know of no research that backs the suspicion — that it is better for a child to be raised by a single parent than it is for a child to be raised by two people who are not of one parenting mind.
