Be a pack leader

Be a pack leader

Because I said so: When they want children to do something RIGHT NOW, parents should stand tall and demand obedience instead of scrunching down to the kid's eye level to ask for their cooperation, family psychologist John Rosemond says.

Ironically, Rosemond's method has been adopted by Boeing in dealing with the states vying for the 777X plant, while the touchy-feely pleading approach is how the San Francisco 49ers ask their fans to cheer for the team.

Who needs a hug: Customers at a new business in Madison, Wis., pay $60 to spend an hour hugging, cuddling and spooning with "professional snugglers."

Sensing a possible front for prostitution, city officials take a dim view of the outfit. But it may have a future on the Candlestick Park concourse during 49ers football games.

Tune in tomorrow: Actually, tune in Thursday: In "The Michael J. Fox Show," Mike gets in Dutch with the wife when he finds out he has to work on Christmas Eve.

Spoiler alert: On a future show, Mike gets laid off and has to take a job as a Wal-Mart greeter. Things get dicey on the home front when he's ordered to work on Thanksgiving.
