Game review: Discover new classes in 'Bravely Second: End Layer'

"Bravely Default" was a "Final Fantasy" game that wasn't. It took many of the classic themes of the series - job classes, airships, even specific item and spell names - and updated them for the modern handheld era. It was a satifying answer on how to make a Final-Fantasy-styled game competitive in today's mobile market. "Bravely Second: End Layer" continues that core philosophy, but one of its sole differentiators from the "Final Fantasy" series proves to be its only real shortcoming. This is an actual sequel, and with that comes some baggage.

Your kid's prom just got even more expensive

American parents are accustomed to being treated like human cash machines during prom season, spending close to $1,000 to guarantee that a high school dance doesn't become an emotional catastrophe. A hundred bucks for tickets, and hundreds more for fancy clothes - even the corsage costs $20. And before any of that begins, your kid wants $300 for a promposal. Wait, a what?

Prom time: Asking underclassmen to prom

Every year, underclassmen from across the nation watch in awe as the senior guys pick and choose from the senior girls, pairing up for the epitome of American high school: prom. Guys traditionally "prompose" to their dates, using badly painted posters and roses that their moms picked out.

Prom time: Getting in shape for prom

Since prom is the ultimate high school dance, many students want to go out with a bang and look their best. As prom season approaches, a wide-spread panic sets in, driving teens to extremes when it comes to fitness and dieting.

Prom time: Find what look flatters you most for prom

We've all had that experience: We look at a picture of a celebrity and think to ourselves, "Man, I really wish I could look like that." Or another common problem - a new hairstyle suddenly becomes trendy and looks good on every celebrity who has it, but when you try it out, it doesn't look nearly as flattering.

Parents @ Play: Now you're cookin'!

Cooking is a wonderful family activity on so many levels. It helps build kids' confidence and creativity, encourages math skills, teaches about cause and effect, builds hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, increases the chance that they'll eat healthier foods (unless all you ever make is dessert), and more. But most of all, it's just plain fun. Here are some terrific products that will make cooking with your kids, well, a piece of cake.

Bulls vs. Warriors: Who's really the greatest of all time?

Twenty years ago, the Chicago Bulls accomplished something nobody thought possible: They set the all-time NBA regular season record of 72 wins. The record was untouchable for almost two decades, but then came the Golden State Warriors. In their final game of the regular season, the Warriors made history with a record of 73-9.

Make a plan and stick to it to save on family meals

Your mortgage, rent, car payments are fixed expenses in your budget, but your monthly food expense seems to be rising each month. Sometimes there is nothing you can do about fixed expenses, but with a little effort, you can decrease that food number.

Dealing with kids can be difficult when parenting styles differ

My husband has three children from a previous marriage. Their mother focuses on the easiest way of parenting. She allows unlimited electronics, showers the kids with presents and does not discipline effectively. It’s obvious she wants to be the kids’ friend. We are the opposite. The problem is that the kids oppose us at every step, and they only come to see us because they have to.

Brother doesn’t want kids to know of upcoming divorce

My brother recently learned that his wife has been cheating on him, not for the first (or even second) time. They have agreed that divorce is the next step. However, they may maintain the facade of marriage until the end of the school year. In the meantime, he wants to pretend everything is normal.

Ask Mr. Dad: Going swimming? Keep your mouth shut

Dear Mr. Dad: My family loves to swim, and every year my wife and I have the same argument. I say swimming pools are filthy and I tell our kids to keep their mouth closed while they're in the water. My wife says chlorine kills any dangerous germs and that it's perfectly fine for the kids to fill their mouths with water and squirt each other, or even to swallow some. We've agreed to let you settle the issue. Who's right?

Living with Children: Let perfectionist son be a 4 year old

Q: Whenever my 4-year-old son tries something new, he becomes very frustrated if he has any difficulty at all. This happens when practicing numbers, letters or anything else I try to teach him. I tell him he's doing fine and will do better with practice, but it's obviously not sinking in. In general, he's a perfectionist in the sense that everything must be "just so." It worries me because we have depression, anxiety and OCD on both sides of the family. I've also heard that perfectionism is characteristic of oldest children. Does that also apply to only children? Could it be a result of the fact that his father and I have been separated for a while now? What can I say to him in order to help him not be so hard on himself?
