Learning the Different Differences of People

Posted by on April 5th, 2017, under NOTEBOOK, VIDEOTAPE

There isn’t just one single point that every parent experiences with their kid learning about the difference of other people. Because they’re all different, in usual and in unique ways, you’ll run into several experiences. Little ones don’t tend to get too caught up in the abstract differences of character and personality, so they tend […]

The Profoundness of Children

Dad Dancing His Baby to “Beat It” Is Priceless

Posted by on February 16th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Baby’s are absolutely wonderful. But let’s face it, they can also be pretty boring. They need a lot of care and changing and feeding, of course, but when they don’t, things can occasionally get a little slow. Sure, when they’re really little everything is exciting.

Playtime Level: Dad

Posted by on December 20th, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS
