Grandparents Contribute to Children’s Well-being at Any Age

With changing family patterns, increased life expectancy, and growing numbers of two incomes, there are higher rates of family breakdown. Grandparents are now playing an increasing role in their grandchildren’s lives. And the definitions of who and what grandparents are has changed over the past decades as well. We grandparents have re-defined ourselves unlike any other generation.

The Truth About Lies*

Being honest is a characteristic quality that everyone hopes will be displayed by those in their lives, and we especially hope this will be a quality our children will embrace. Even those little white lies are lies, especially in situations where it can harm someone or something. Lies can only lead to bigger trouble, in many cases, and even though we want to think our children would never lie to us, they will, at least once in a while.

Have the Family Become Scientists!

an exclusive feature by Victoria Waller, Ed.D*

Masks are a must, so why not add some extra style…

Masks are here to stay — at least for a long while. One of our favorite ways to wear a mask (and not lose it) is to wear a mask chain. Have you tried it? We have found two sites that make the chains… and the chains are made by KIDS. Plus, each company donates a portion of their proceeds to charity. How great is this! Take a look. You may want to order one – or more!

The Day I Put Money into a Kickstarter Campaign

An ad came up on my computer and in less than 10 seconds I had clicked, “Yes,” and sent my credit card number. Now the amount wasn’t much, so what could I lose? You’re wondering what a mom, grandma and educator would jump at so fast and help someone she doesn’t even know with a new invention. Are you ready? The Building Brick Waffle Maker!

Creating New Holiday Traditions

Embrace the idea of holiday chaos with the family! This is what makes times memorable and shareable, and will forever be a highlight.

Everyone is given a little piece of paper and they write down what they are grateful for or what adventure or experience has happened, and what they look forward to in the coming year.
