Homework can be a stressful affair for everyone involved. Juggling after-school activities, meal prep and housework, it often takes a village to get reading assignments, flashcards and worksheets completed at a decent hour. We've yet to find out how to make schoolwork magically disappear altogether, but we can tip parents off on how to make the situation more manageable. Here's how to create a quiet, supervised and streamlined area where kids can study at home.
Your little baby isn't a baby anymore! Make sure you're prepared for the toddler years with gear and toys you didn't realize you needed for children aged one to three.
Target was a go-to for the trendiest Christmas toys last year, and you can expect even more of the same great Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales on kids' favorite brands in 2018. From Air Hogs to Peppa Pig and PAW Patrol playsets, it won't be hard to fulfill your child's wish list with a shopping trip to Target. Last year, Nintendo and LEGO were favorite toymakers for Target shoppers, and this year the virtual toy chest is loaded with options from Baby Alive, KumiKreator, Crate Creatures and more.

Unlike a Christmas birthday, which can get easily overlooked during the holiday commotion, a Halloween birthday party is a special unicorn — much like your little princess, superhero or monster. And just like those peanut butter cups you're giving out to trick-or-treaters, Halloween and birthdays are "two great things that go great together!" No need to rack your brain for some far-out theme — costumes and candy are a given. But you can still flex your creativity and choose unique decorations, invitations and much more to make your kiddo's Halloween birthday party a howling success. Keep scrolling for some frightfully fun inspiration.
So you've got the Playstation 4; now, which games are you supposed to get? Picking out the best video games for kids can be challenging—that's why we've rounded up the top PlayStation kids games and ranked them by age appropriateness and ease of play.
The diaper bag. It is a necessary part of parenthood, from baby's first few days in this world well into what may be their toddler years. It can seem daunting at first to try and determine what defines "must-have" versus "meh, maybe not" on-the-go gear. That's why we've rounded up our favorite diaper bag essentials, from a few ideas as to what to pack in a diaper bag for the hospital to what might even be a bit of a "bonus" for mom and dad. Speaking of, not much differs when it comes to diaper bag essentials for dad or mom, but guys on the go may appreciate a diaper bag backpack or duffle of their very own. You know, to avoid potential paisley prints or darling designs perhaps less desired by some dudes.
As a child, did you pretend to live in a castle by arranging old blankets over the couch and chairs? There was something so fun about sitting underneath mom's old sheets. Now think how much more awesome it would be to actually have a bed that looks like a mini house! Enter the toddler house bed, also known as a Montessori floor bed.
These beds are exactly what they sound like: Picture a house-shaped frame above the mattress, complete with windows, a door and a kitchen (OK, just kidding about the kitchen). But now picture your little angel's precious head resting underneath one of these magical creations.
While this may seem like a cool, new way to sleep, the floor bed concept actually dates back to the early 20th century teaching philosophy called the Montessori Method, which focuses on placing everything a child needs to learn and explore at the child's level. So, by placing their bed on the floor, you give children independence and a chance to learn on their own terms.
Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite toddler house beds that are ready to take up residence in dreamland.

Remember: No party is too big, no celebration too small. If you need the paw-fect party ideas just yelp for help — or read on for some inspiration. We're on the case!
Fingerlings were one of the hottest toys last holiday season. In fact, they were so popular that Fingerlings Minis and even Fingerlings keychains soon followed. But this year, Fingerlings HUGS are at the top of every kid's wish list and one of the best Christmas toys of 2018. The adorable interactive plushies feature long arms that can wrap around your kid for a cuddle, and they also give kisses, giggle, repeat after your child and — whoops! — pass gas. The collection includes animals such as a unicorn and sloth, but we have to say that Fingerlings monkeys Boris and Bella might just be the cutest toys ever. While you'll likely find sweet Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on these cute critters on toy store shelves across the country, there are even better deals — and exclusive animals! — available online at Amazon, Walmart and Target now. So, stop arguing with your little one about whether they're getting a real puppy or kitten, and tell them Santa might just deliver a monkey, sloth or unicorn pal instead! Shop the Fingerlings collection below.
