Kindergarten is a big step. Off to school, for the first time, can be stressful (and emotional) for both parents and kids!   Some helpful tips:

*Parents, are you nervous? Try not to let it show.

*Build up your kids’ self-esteem before they head to the classroom.

*Don’t forget the first day is a big deal for you (as your child).

Bottom line:  “Kids are so resilient! All they need is some support and encouragement, and they can get through anything.  As parents, we have to remember that. Kindergarten is the beginning of letting go.”  Check out the complete list on the News Blog!

A ‘fair’ by any other name?

City officials will accommodate the ‘larger than normal’ turn out for a vote tonight by the Winston-Salem City Council on changing the name of the Dixie Classic Fair.  After months of controversy and a survey showing most favor keeping the current name, a committee decided last week to put the name-change issue before the council for an up-or-down vote (set for tonight). BTW: No new name will be selected tonight.

Weight Loss Myth: Eating late at night is bad.

Not necessarily.  Eating at night is like eating at any other time of the day.

“You should absolutely have dinner if you haven’t eaten,” Shira Hirshberg, a registered dietitian nutritionist in Rhode Island, said. “Every person needs a certain amount of calories a day, and if you don’t exceed them, then eating at night should not lead to extra inches around the waist.”

Several studies showing that exercise is a relatively small part in weight loss.

In reality, it’s more like 80% nutrition and 20% exercise…
