Camp Jefferson: Lansdale coal mine field trip is a hit

Wednesday, July 31, 2019 by LAUREN PETERS CAMP COUNSELOR in Social News

Time is sure flying by at Camp Jefferson, as week six has come to an end. We had some fantastic weather during the week and a great field trip.

On Monday, exciting games like Fastest in the West and dodgeball were enjoyed by everyone. Some campers were enjoying the day by staying cool and making bracelets with colorful string, while other campers chose to play a basketball game against the counselors, which was definitely a sight to see. All of the campers were able to enjoy a great day at the pool and snack stand with their friends.

The Family Project: Hide and seek

Tuesday, October 23, 2018 by CAROLE GORNEY in Social News

Q. My five-year-old son likes to play hide and seek, but it has started to become a problem because he will hide without telling me, whether at home or at the store. I become frantic trying to find him. He doesn’t always answer me when I call him, and I become afraid that he has gotten lost or that someone has taken him. When I do find him, he just laughs. I can’t get him to stop. What should I do: Put a leash on him when we go out?

Respectfully Yours: Voicemail messages

Tuesday, October 23, 2018 by JACQUELYN YOUST in Social News

Dear Jacquelyn,

Leaving a voicemail message makes me uncomfortable. I don’t know what to say and how much information to leave. Many times, when I hear the dreaded recording, I just figure, I’ll try again later when they’re there. When I do muster up the courage to leave a voicemail message, I tend to stumble a bit or I feel like I’m rambling on. How much information do I really need to leave? Any tips would be appreciated.

The Family Project: Handling question

Friday, July 27, 2018 by CAROLE GORNEY in Social News

Q. My five-year-old daughter’s new best friend comes from a family with same-sex parents. I am stuck on how to begin to answer questions she may have about this. Can you help me with some pointers on how to handle the discussion?

The first reaction from the panel was that there is an assumption that the daughter is going to have questions about her friend’s parents.
