Dear Abby: Using mother tongue makes family conversation difficult

Dear Abby: My son married an educated professional woman from another country. When their twins were born, my daughter-in-law immersed them in her native language so it would become their mother tongue. Although I understand and respect the benefits of being bilingual, this caused a lot of communication gaps and frustration between us and the grandkids during their early years.

Hazards of nightly sleep-wake-repeat pattern

Find your part in Wenatchee as a newcomer to the area

If you’re new to the area, you can get to know your Wenatchee neighborhood in several ways. You can, for example, walk and bike the roads and paths, study the irrigation system that carries water to your yard and garden, and read local histories such as the 2012 book “Wenatchee,” recently published by the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center.

Parents push for inclusive playgrounds

Four-year-old Lucas Dean has to have three things when he goes to the playground: long pants, Mickey Mouse gardening gloves and lots of energy. He needs them to crawl through the rough wood chips to reach the slides, stairs and swings.
