Negotiating the Deal to Death Dear Doreen, We found the perfect house— finally! We made an offer, and the seller accepted. But, then the “fun” began. We overlooked many of the smaller issues on the inspection report and focused on the roof and hot water heater. Estimate for repairs, probably $8,000. Seller counters with a $2,000 price adjustment. We again ask for $8,000. Seller says $3,000. I said, “give us $4,000 and we’ll move forward.” Seller says $5,000, but retracts the home warranty and HVAC servicing he already agreed to. We have since moved on to another house. It’s not perfect but close. The first sellers tried to get us in a corner. Note to sellers: Just
because inventory is low and prices are on the rebound doesn’t mean buyers can be held hostage. Are you with me, Doreen? —No Fool Dear Buyer, The sellers have been the low man on the totum pole for so long, they feel they just can’t give anymore. How much can a homeowner lose? This one wasn’t willing to lose much more than $3,000 above what he had already lost. You found the “perfect home” but not worth purchase price plus the cost of the needed repairs. Maybe everyone learned a little for the next time? Good luck and thanks for writing this. —Doreen

Giving to Those Who Give e are a group of eighth and ninth W graders, along with our mothers, who created H.O.P.E. charity in Anthem.
H.O.P.E. stands for Helping Out People Every day. Our current project is helping and becoming friends with kids who have disabilities such as autism and Down syndrome. [Recently] we had a garage sale to raise money. We were surprised when Ena Simanson, the treasurer of the Giving Circle, dropped off a $300 check on behalf of the non-profit organization. She gave us this because she was amazed at what we were doing and she wanted to see us strive even further toward our goal. Thank you so much, Giving Circle! â€”The Members of H.O.P.E. Pay it Forward Witness or experience a random act of goodness? Send your story to forward@ inandoutaz.com. Weâ€™ll share it with the community and help you pay it forward with a $50 charitable donation.

decline it. Some guy actually asked for my information.…I scrolled onto his user name and clicked ‘mute,’ ” said the gamer. “There’s also a ‘file complaint’ button so you can send a complaint to Microsoft.” Building a virtual mansion with an online stranger might sound innocuous, but consider it from a predator’s point of view. Sexual predators often try to gain the trust of young victims by befriending them. And what better way than to engage the child than with his favorite pastime. The gaming system is not the only hidden access your child has to the Internet. You didn’t dumb down that smart phone when you upgraded. Just because you killed the contract doesn’t mean the phone is safe. Charge the unit and get within range of a Wi-Fi network (and who isn’t?), and your child is wide open to the Internet, texting, apps, downloading and uploading photos and videos. Yikes. Denying access to the Internet is hard. And your kids are more technologically clever than you are. They will find a way. Access is everywhere; in school, the library, just about everybody’s pocket. Teaching and watching your child is more effective. io
Take Control of the Gaming Experience
Use parental controls on the console to regulate access to games, movies and TV shows. Program the timer on the console to limit the amount of time spent gaming daily. Use the “friend lists” on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network to restrict and monitor with whom your kids play. Use “block,” “mute” and “avoid” features to ban foul-mouthed players from ever playing with your child again. SOURCE: Microsoft Xbox Support
WHAT EVERY KID SHOULD KNOW
• Use only a first name or nickname to identify themselves. • Never arrange a faceto-face meeting with someone they met online. • Never send photographs of themselves. • Never give out name, address, telephone number or school. • Never download pictures from an unknown source. • Never respond to messages or postings that are suggestive, obscene, belligerent, or harassing. • Be honest about the types of potential danger online. • Spend time with your child when he/she goes digital. Have them teach you about their favorite sites and what they like to do. • Allow online activity only in a common room in the house so you can supervise them. • Use the parental controls on the system, but don’t rely on them to wholly protect your child. • Maintain access to your child’s accounts and check email. Let your child know you are protecting his/her safety. SOURCE: Federal Bureau of Investigation

estricting online content on a handheld device—like an iPod or DSi portable game system—is difficult because these gadgets connect easily via Wi-Fi. In fact, that’s a major selling point for these devices. Here are tips to keep your kids safe while they are attached to their favorite handheld.
The Result: Less risk of decay— and the pain, treatment and expense that comes with it. Applying sealant is painless and needs no anesthetic. Ask Dr. Baskin how sealant can help prevent tooth decay… and bigger issues down the road.
iPod Touch and iPad Content from these devices is filtered through Apple’s iTunes store, and while it is closely monitored by Apple, adult content is widely available. You can enable restrictions on content through the preferences in iTunes. Simply go to Edit>Preferences and select Parental on the top bar. Here you can restrict what content can be downloaded and synced. Or you can fully restrict downloads by keeping your App Store password to yourself.
On the device itself, you can restrict access to the browser, YouTube, the camera and more. Go to Settings > General > Restrictions. Click Enable Restrictions to enter a passcode, then set your preferences.

Providing Health Care for Children
T H E TA L K | BY BRAD WOOD
PARENTAL GUIDANCE “Kids often spend more time on digital devices during summer. What do you do to make sure your kids are safe online?”
“We have a software program that does not allow them [access] to certain sites. Sites that are age-appropriate, it allows them to go to. Before they go to new sites I always check them first then evaluate if they are allowed.”
“If our kids go online we punch in the website for them that they want to go to. We then go to the game they want to play and look at it first. We re-check that they stay on that game or site. We give them a half hour at a session.”
“We check on them and make sure to look at the screen. Mom researches sites and checks history. Most important is that we talk to the kids, lay down rules and enforce them.”
“We use Net Nanny. It’s a program… that limits access to content. It limits language and videos. It is customizable, so you can set up limits you are comfortable with. Our computer is in a place visible to everyone in the house, as well.”
At-home Mom, Anthem

ear can be a negative motivator. But sometimes trepidation can arise as the result of an impending and demanding physical task. When that is the case, that primordial emotion can be converted into a positive and fun experience. Such is the case for the brave souls who choose to leave the ground and meet the challenges of the treetop rope courses at Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course. This new Flagstaff destination (opened in March 2012), is a series of rope courses that vary in difficulty and height. The courses combine a variety of challenging games, such as jumping on a moving skateboard, crossing suspended bridges and zip lining through the treetops to the finish line.
There are four adult courses ranked by color: green, blue, red and black, and one course designed for children ages 7 and up (yellow). Complete one, two, three or all four courses depending on your own comfort and enjoyment level. Each person progresses at his/her own pace. A Guiding Hand Yes, it’s extreme, but safety of guests is priority No. 1, so you will wear a harness clipped to a safety wire. Visitors must complete a brief training session beforehand, and guides are available on each course to assist, give suggestions of how to conquer the obstacles and, if the need arises, even help someone get back to terra firma. The Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course has only one peer in America, and you’ll have to travel to the Adirondack Mountains of New York to compare. French and Canadian engineers helped design and construct this fun and stimulating experience in the Flagstaff Ponderosa Pine treetops. The Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course is a joint venture between Coconino County and the private owner of the adventure course. This partnership is designed to bring eco-friendly outdoor fun to people of all ages. It fits in perfectly with this beautiful mountain town—an endless playground for outdoor enthusiasts. It’s fun. Thrilling. Different. And, cool. Get out, take that short drive and get your feet off the ground at the Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course. The adrenaline rush in the treetops will be a highlight of summer 2012. io
