‘Tis the season for holiday parties. Unfortunately happy occasions such as office parties and outings with friends can be ruined by those who overconsume....
Rather than distract from dreams of turkey and sweet potato casserole, we just want to quickly remind you to be safe this Thanksgiving.
From The Globe and Mail
Dear Dr. Wolf:
I am a 50-year-old divorced father of three teenage boys. My youngest is autistic. My second boy taunts and harasses him whenever they're together. I've tried to explain to No. 2 that he should show a little more compassion and understanding. I've told both older boys of No. 3's situation and I've tried my best to explain what autism is about.
No. 1 is pretty good with No. 3. It's No. 2 who concerns me. I need a better approach to get him to see No. 3 in a different light and to see the damage that he may be doing to him.

Dear Worried Dad,
The way your second son acts towards his younger brother is an oft-repeated story of siblings – whether there is an issue of disability or not. Compared to an older sibling, all younger siblings do have a disability: They are younger, hence usually smaller, weaker, less smart.
We’re happy to announce that we’ll be partnering up with Apolo Anton Ohno’s west coast book tour next week!
