Game review: 'Dandara,' feeling salty

While it's usually pretty easy to understand what a game will be about based on standard game genre classifications, sometimes a title comes around that completely bucks the trend. Such is the case with "Dandara," the new game from developer Long Hat House that could and perhaps likely should be described as a retro-inspired Metroidvania, yet manages not to feel like one. While the familiar notions of room-to-room exploration and the gradual acquisition of abilities are all present and in good form, "Dandara" sidesteps the genre's typical gameplay by removing the basic ability for players to run or even walk. As a result, the game feels less like a throwback adventure and more like an experimental new way to approach the genre – and that means it comes with a substantial learning curve.

Our son is now four, and after recently seeing my ex I think I should tell him that Randy is his son. At our last meeting, things got sort of flirty again, and I think Valentine's Day might be a good time to get his attention. What's good ex-etiquette?

Lori Borgman: Fear is undoubtedly a certain part of parenting

Before Orville and Wilbur Wright spread their wings, they ran a small bicycle shop in Dayton, Ohio. They were cutting edge, both the Wright brothers and bicycles. Bicycles were the next big thing of the day. But not everyone was on board. There were voices of concern from parents. Why? Because a child who could not go far from home by walking could now be a mile away – in only 15 minutes.

First days in child care are riskiest time for babies

Two grave incidents in Minnesota day cares – the 2016 hanging of an infant who barely survived, and the alleged recent shaking of a baby who died – reflect a troubling but little-known trend: A child's first month in care often can be the most dangerous.

How do screens like TV and smartphones affect kids' sleep?

While the connection between poor sleep and bedroom TVs is well-established, the effect of small screens – smartphones, iPods, tablets, or other small-screen devices – on kids' sleep hasn't been studied until recently. A report released in January 2015 by the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that they're just as worrisome – but for different reasons than TVs.

In wake of #MeToo movement, sex education evolves

For millions of people who grew up in the Chicago area, learning about their bodies from Valeda, the transparent, computerized talking woman at the Robert Crown Center for Health Education in Hinsdale was as much a part of puberty as shopping for their first bras or adjusting to voice changes.
