    2. Short pregnancy gaps may lead to osteoporosis
    A new study claims that women who get pregnant less than a year apart may have a greater risk for developing osteoporosis later in life than those who have longer time in between pregnancies. The study, which analyzed bone tissue of postmenopausal women, also found that getting pregnant before age 27 may also increase that risk. Researchers suggest that women should wait two years between pregnancies for optimal bone health, as one year may not be enough time to regain bone density lost during pregnancy. (reuters.com)

    4. Single dad creates new app to help discipline his son
    There’s now an app to help you to get your child to clean up after himself, stop being rude, or listen in class. Dad and occupational therapist Kevin Spiteri, together with his Helping Hand System business partner Bryan Saavedra (also a dad), created the Behavior World app, a positive-reinforcement tool for parents, teachers, and kids. He created it primarily for his son Kyle, now 9, who had a difficult time after Kevin and Kyle’s mom divorced in 2010. The most effective tool for Kyle to stop acting out then was through a Candyland-style game he came up with —- and the idea for the Behavior World app was born. (yahoo.com)
