FAMILY MATTERS: Use bad behavior to teach, not punish - A five-year-old has been getting up two or three times each night, making up silly reasons to get out of her bed in the middle of the night. By Diana Boggia, Canton, Ohio.

REUSE CANS: Top 20 ways to reuse tin cans - My toddler is a great lover of beans. Kidneys, pintos, black bean, navy beans, he’ll gobble them all up with equal enthusiasm. It’s earned him the nickname “my Bean-y Baby”, and it sure does make dinnertime easy. I try to home-cook dried beans as much as possible, but with a toddler in tow, we resort to cans more often than not. Which means we go through a lot of tin cans. And it got me thinking – what could I do with them once they’re empty? And what about the bigger, stewed tomato cans? Or the biggest, the coffee cans? Could I repurpose them into something fun and fantastic? By Sayward Rebhal, Networx.

LOOKING UP: Catching the starry Dolphin - The other evening I was reminded by the subject matter I wished to explore for this edition of Looking Up. Inspired by the sky? Actually I was reminded at church, where two children had just completed their class. They were playing with two inflatable dolphins! ?That’s was it! Once home I looked up at the night sky, awash with moonlight but punctuated with the glow of the brighter stars. There was my subject, the marvelous constellation of the Dolphin. By Peter Becker, Hawley, Pa.

MOVIE MAN: ‘Royal Tenenbaums’ funny and surprisingly sad - This summer, Wes Anderson’s movie “Moonrise Kingdom,” earned $43 million at the box office, which was considered a huge success. (To put things in perspective, “The Avengers” earned $207 million — on its opening weekend.) But “Moonrise Kingdom” was a huge success. For one thing, it cost less than $20 million to make, meaning it more than doubled its cost. And, more importantly, a director like Wes Anderson makes movies that not only stand the test of time — they get better with it. By Will Pfiefer, Rockford, Ill.
