How parents can help teens avoid potential motor accidents

As the school year approaches, many families now have teenagers who will be occupying the roads more often. While September does not have as high of an accident rate as July, the first month for a teen driving to school in Tennessee can be very dangerous given their inexperience behind the wheel.

Sometimes just telling what your child to do will not be enough, so you need a couple of tactics to ensure that your kid will be safe on the road. Doing so can potentially decrease the chances of your child getting into an accident.

Who gets the farm in a divorce?

Farming is more than a job—it’s a way of life. To be a farmer, you need to give it everything you’ve got: body, mind and soul. You become part of the land, and it becomes part of you. That’s why it’s particularly hard when farming families divorce. How can you divide assets with so much personal significance? A business that carries such weight and meaning?

Dividing farms and livestock can require as much delicacy as a child custody arrangement, as equitable solutions can be murky and complex. What’s right for you will depend on a number of factors.

When brain injuries happen

It was a bad accident on a July afternoon. 14-year-old Kieran W. was on her way to a soccer tournament when a semi-truck broadsided her family's station wagon. Kieran was critically injured, including head trauma, fractured pelvis, lacerated spleen and a punctured lung. Kieran woke up from her coma with left-sided paralysis. She spent months in rehab learning how to redo the basics like eating, walking and talking before being released home in a wheelchair. Kieran had a traumatic brain injury.

My father-in-law died in a nursing home suffering from dementia at the time of his death. The nursing home where he died in my hometown of Pulaski, Tennessee did not contribute to his passing, as far as I know.

If you qualify, concurrent SSI and SSDI benefits are possible

If you happen to be living with a disability that renders you unable to work, help is out there. The Social Security Administration (SSA) can provide you with not only Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), but also Supplemental Security Income (SSI), if you qualify.

While you may have previously thought that SSI and SSDI were only available to two different groups, in truth, there are many cases of overlap. For those in need, these “concurrent benefits” can offer much needed financial help in the event that you’re unable to work.
