ParentMap November 2008 issue

Are you a "digital immigrant"? You know the type: You make that "did you get my email?" phone call. You print out hard copies of emails and Web pages. You feel that texting is too labor-intensive.

If that's you, you may soon find yourself out-teched by your own children. Imagine how today's teachers feel! This month's feature takes a look at Generation Text and the special challenges it faces at school. 

We put a twist on Ages & Stages this month, focusing on the growing pains of parents. New baby knock you off the rails? Get a little marriage 9-1-1. Put the brakes on bickering ... and cope with the double whammy of raising a teenager — with your ex.

We've also got the skinny on the best local museums you've never gone to — but should. Plus, some seriously thinky gifts for kids — SpongeBob and Barbie need not apply.
