This Is Your Kid on L.O.L. Dolls

Plus: Top books and road trip rules.
A roundup of new guidance and stories from NYT Parenting.

Those big-eyed, neon-haired figures cluttering your home? They’re the brain children of Isaac Larian, the founder and chief executive officer of MGA Entertainment, whose wildly popular L.O.L. Surprise! dolls have become a $5 billion business. Chavie Lieber visited the toymaker’s headquarters and reported on how the dolls came to dominate the past decade. Also on the site this week, Anna Lee Beyer on the agony and ecstasy (and gas station breaks) of a 12-hour road trip with little ones. Carrie Arnold explained how to keep your kids safe during the holidays (helmets on, candles snuffed, people!). Dr. Pooja Lakshmin, M.D., a perinatal psychiatrist, shared how to support a friend with a perinatal mood or anxiety disorder. And Melonyce McAfee, our senior staff editor, rounded up the most influential parenting books from the past decade.

Thanks for reading!

Parenting can be a grind. Let’s celebrate the tiny victories.
My 18-month-old son loves pulling out baby wipes, one by one, and scattering them all over the floor. I gave up trying to stop him and my heart burst when he started “cleaning” the floor! Davina Gordon, Northern Ireland
