Heartburn

Heartburn

  That burning discomfort in your chest or throat may have nothing to do with your heart.

If you lift your eyes up and look at those who are in a worse condition than

A lot of this anger comes from utter frustration — not knowing how to manage children’s behavior. Anger also occurs when a child falls short of a parent’s expectations, when kids embarrass their parents in public, and when they show disrespect.
