©2020 THE VALLEY BREEZE Living THE VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER JULY 23-29, 2020 @ Traditional Parenting JOHN ROSEMOND Toddler head banging – this too will pass Q: When my 2-year-old gets angry, he sometimes gets down and bangs his head on the floor. This happens two or three times a week, generally speaking. He's not bruised himself, yet, but I don't know how long that's going to last. To make matters worse, I've made the mistake of reading about various psychological disorders and have started to obsess about the autism spectrum thing. Other than the head banging, he's a happy, ver- bal, and very imaginative child, able to play by himself in his room for several hours at a stretch. I'm blessed and worried at the same time.

Food Fights events Celebrate iced coffee in July, ice cream in August If you're looking for a culinary adventure this summer, join one of Rhode Island Food Fights' virtual passport events, which lets par- ticipants sample treats from restaurants across the state and vote on their favorite spot to determine the best of the best. The month of July is the 7th annual iced coffee summer celebration, while Aug. 1 kicks off the month-long 3rd annual Search for the #BestScoopShopRI. Other upcom- ing events are Best Noodles in September, Best Tacos in October, and Best Pizza in November. "It's a way to find new places and find the best food around," Jim Nellis, of R.I. Food Fights, told The Valley Breeze. "People know if it's a Rhode Island Food Fights event, it will have the best restaurants participating and the largest number of restaurants participat- ing." To join any of the month-long events, pur- chase a passport full of coupons to use at 20-30 establishments and visit them on your own time within the month. This month 28 coffee shops across Rhode Island are participating. With the coupons, you'll receive one free iced coffee at each establishment. Tickets cost $25, but are a $125 value.
