  • Put a philanthropic twist on your child's next party
    Kids these days: They’re a generous bunch. We get a thrill every time we hear about a birthday boy or girl using his or her special day to make someone else feel special. If your child is in the giving mood on his next big day, help turn his party into a charity event by recruiting party-goers to donate gifts, volunteer or craft up a storm. To make it easy, we gathered 29 of our favorite causes. Pick one that speaks to you, and get to giving.

Though she’s no longer immersed in that sphere — she only recently stopped working before her daughter was born — the Westlake resident misses it every day.
  • Reaching across the so-called "skipped generation"
    It’s amazing what you don’t realize is going on in your own family, because we had no clue,” recalls 57-year-old Richardson resident Kaye Surley of the stunning phone call that snatched grandparenting from her life two years ago. “We were oblivious. We were just happy to have Kyleigh every weekend.”
  • 12 water parks and destinations for families
    Dallas-Fort Worth is packed full of water parks, so we’ve collected a few of our favorite destinations, including wake parks, stand-alone surfing rides and the biggest parks with the most daring slides. Stay the weekend at one of the local resorts with spectacular water parks of their own, get more out of your day with special events like outdoor movies over the water, or take it easy with paddleboats.
