GIVEAWAY: HBO's Divorce Season 1 On Blu-ray Combo

As mentioned last week, here's is the review and giveaway for Divorce! 

Sarah Jessica Parker earned a Golden Globe nomination, Best Actress in a Comedy Series, for her new role in the new hit series. Divorce centers on Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker), who more than a decade of marriage and two children, has suddenly begun to reassess her life and her strained relationship with her husband Robert (Thomas Haden Church). 

The 411:

I am 5 episodes in and LOVE it! Sarah Jessica Parker is of course phenomenal in this as is Thomas Haden Church. While it is about a failing marriage and at times dark the actors are gold with you wanting to love and hate each one at different times.  Divorce isn't easy on any party involved. Whether it is your kids and deciding when to tell them or who get which friend in the divorce, it is covered and your heart breaks for the loss of the marriage of these two people who obviously at one time loved each other. 

Watching a show about the break of up a marriage may not be your cup of tea and I wish it was funnier (more flipping the bird as they pass each other in the hall) I am enjoying it. However with that said, I find myself wondering why Sarah Jessica's Francis jeopardized her marriage for the egotistical, pathetic boyfriend or maybe a few more episodes in and I will understand but right now I am on Robert's side.

Unfortunately, this scenario is all too common to many parents nationwide.

While you’d like to think that your teen son or daughter will never end up trouble, the reality is it happens. When it does, your teen’s future could be in peril for many years to come.

Whether you need a sexual assault lawyer or counsel in another practice area, don’t waste time.

Remember, your son or daughter’s future is at stake along with their present well-being. As such, don’t slouch on choosing the best legal help out there.

What Charges is Your Teen Facing?

For many teens, life means a carefree attitude, thinking that nothing can hurt them along the way.

As it turns out, a fair number of teens will discover doesn't always go their way. When they do end up confronting a major legal crisis early on in life, it can prove devastating.

To get your teen the help they need, focus in on the charges at hand.

Some of the more commons ones a teen can end up facing:

· Assault charges – Was your teen involved in a melee at school or outside of the classroom? If so, you and your family could be looking at several challenges. The first one of course is the legal matter at hand. The second one would be if someone suffers injuries in the fight. If so, their family may end up suing you in civil court. Getting your teen cleared of such charges is a priority you can’t overlook.

· DUI – As many discover, drinking and driving can be deadly for them and loved ones. If your teen is being charged with DUI, don’t waste time in finding the best legal help. A conviction can end up ruining their college plans and even finding a job down the road. As with the assault scenario, your family could end up facing a lawsuit. This would be in civil court if one or more people suffered serious injuries or were even killed.

· Cyber-stalking or bullying – With many teens online, some will abuse it. When your teen faces charges of cyber-stalking or bullying; seek immediate legal help. Such charges can lead to problems now and down the road for your young one. Be sure to find a lawyer who can pick apart a prosecutor’s case.

Helping Your Teen Through a Difficult Time

Legal charges against most people can provide anxious moments.

That said imagine what it is like when you have a teenager going through such an ordeal?

Be sure to give them as much moral support as possible.

While some teens are very advanced for their ages, others are still young individuals.

You can’t get into the head of your teen when they are going through such an ordeal. As such the best thing to do is be there in their time of need.

Concerns include school work, socializing with friends, and college plans when facing charges.

With that in mind, does your teen need legal help?

The 411:

I work in a daycare/preschool and was able to interview a few of the teachers and aides about this item.

Clary (38 years): I think it is nice but I think kids can still toss over it. It attached really easy to the high chairs and I could see the babies easily which is good because I would want to make sure they are safe. It is low enough that the baby isn't caged in.

Jess (33 years): It is OK but I would never use this. My child shouldn't be caged and if they are throwing things it means they are done eating.  So now it is time to do something else and not just sit in the chair and toss more and more things over.

Jean (30 years): I love it. I hate getting up every time one of the babies tosses something over.  I think parents would love it and it wiped down really easy. Hooking it up around the chair and taking it down was quick and simple. I wish this was around when my kids were babies.

Cailin (26 years): I don't have any kids yet but I think I would probably use this sometimes. Maybe not for every meal but when we are visiting family or have company over and I need to get up and down more often than just sit with the baby. It would keep food and cups or toys on the tree and that also means less mess to worry about when I visit someone. I would hate to dirty someone's carpet. 

Kathy (55 years): I think many parents would like this because it means less for them to worry about. They can eat their meal in peace or watch TV without having to pick things up every two seconds during those terrible throw months.

Maria (me 50): I would have loved this when I sat my son in his high chair with a meal or snack while I nursed my daughter. It was really hard to sit down and nurse, get comfortable, have the baby falling asleep and having to get up every few minutes to pick up his dropped sippy or toys.

Finale Thoughts: What I noticed were the ones who loved it or would have used it were the moms who had more than one child. The moms of only children didn't get it. I remember how hard it was sometimes to put my son in the high chair and try to take care of his nursing, screaming sister and have to jump up because he was screaming that he had tossed everything over. This would have been a Godsend for me.

It could also be attached to a stroller although we didn't do this we think this is a great idea. Because many of us remember being at the park, a mall, or just walking and losing a favorite toy or having a pacifier hit the ground with no place to clean it. 

We also felt it was made well but that the price tag was a little high. Maybe at around $20 more of us would consider it a great gift idea. It is made of mesh and wire (picture a collapsible laundry basket.)
