How's your new year treating you, supersister? Here's our raves and faves from this week in January. Enjoy.

Okay, wondering whether you should drink the koolaid and give in to the High School Musical frenzy? Check in with PBS Parenting Expert Diane Levin and get a take on how to handle the pressure on little girls to grow up way too fast.

Need a little guidance on how to help your kids handle the inevitable embarrassment of trying hard and coming up short? Meg Casey writes about taking her son Max to see a hero who happens to fall down on the job--as a professional hockey player. The experience is just the Rx for teaching your kids that we're all human and we all can be winners when we learn that failing is part of the game.

Missed the rush of New Year excitement? Having a hard time jump starting your goals for 2009? Check out this lovely essay by Superhero Andrea Scher and remember one of your tried and true secrets for gettting unstuck and motivated for the year to come.

Wondering what simple thing you can do to move our lovely green earth towards an even lovelier future? Take one night off from lights and electricity with Cecilia and her two little girls. This experiment in conservation and mindfulness makes for a smooth bedtime and a better world. Check it out.
