Let’s Work Together to Save our Kids

It’s happened again—another mass shooting at a college. I’m lying on the couch with a broken foot elevated and listening as the news media discusses why this continues to happen. It’s all I can do not to scream at the television. As a recently retired educator, I have watched the mass shooting phenomenon in our country since 1999 when the shooting at Columbine High School shocked the nation and changed school culture around the country. We have a huge, growing problem and it is not simpl...

Put a Rock in Your Kid’s Backpack

      As a new school year kicks off, I got to thinking. If a parent could only put one thing into their kid’s backpack for the new school year, what would it be? New clothes? New shoes? A new lunchbox? A new calculator? All those things are good and needed, but I was thinking of something a little more ‘down to earth’—a rock. I am not very physically coordinated.

Make A Summer Memory

As my husband proclaimed, “Make a memory!” the children and I burst into laughter. There we all stood each at a different pine tree, in the middle of the Tonto National Forest, with our faces pressed to the trunk of the tree. We smelled the pine tree to see if it smelled like vanilla ice cream, and it did! We signed up for the guided hike with Ranger Bob (really his name) not knowing it would be so informative and entertaining! Our children, ages six and nine, loved every moment. They loved ...

Help! What Can My Teen Do This Summer?

“Help!” The cry of parents can be heard across the country as summer approaches. First everyone has to calm down and get a grip. Yes, your kids are out of school for a break, but that doesn’t mean they must be lying around your house watching TV, playing computer games, or using their cell phone’s entire data plan. Actually this fear can be turned into a very good question: “What can my teen do this summer?” The key to this question is the word “can”. There are a l...
