How to Use a Time Out Correctly

Posted by on July 31st, 2015, under SNAPSHOTS

This qualifies as a parent hack as far as I’m concerned. Most parents don’t realize the opportunity they’re missing when they send their kids off to the disciplinary Siberia of a Time Out. That they can also take some time out for themselves. We’ve got so much to do as parents. Always. Nonstop. Forever it […]

Posted by on May 27th, 2015, under SNAPSHOTS

Children’s Books Gone Terribly Terribly Wrong

Posted by on April 14th, 2015, under SNAPSHOTS

Reading to your kids, you occasionally run across something in a children’s book that raises your adult eyebrows. And, strolling through a bookstore, you may happen upon a title (or its entire contents) that gets your head tilt on, mentally or audibly making you ask yourself, “What on earth were they thinking?!” Sure, some of […]
