Leaders or Followers: which is better? In education, sports, and parenting, there is often a message that kids should be leaders. But what if you’re parenting followers? Are they doomed to mediocrity? Is there anything you can do about it? Leaders and followers are mostly made, as opposed to being born as one or the […]
Sometimes you’re mind gets blocked and you just can’t seem to get going. Creative exercises can get you flowing again. That why I love this little book. It’s a creative journal that you can-and should-write inside on the pages. So forget what your mom and the librarian taught you about never writing in books and grab your colored pencils. Mark it up, sketch, draw and color without guilt!

Not long ago I had the opportunity to chat with a 16 year-old girl who is in the midst of post high school planning. She was talking about her plan to tour colleges over Spring Break, whether she wants to attend a large university and if she wants to be in a big city or a […]
Lately, wherever I go that involves parents and teens, I overhear the same conversation about life after high school that seems to crop up each spring. The topic is “What is your son/daughter doing after high school?” It goes something like this:
It occurred to me that March Madness applies to more than just college basketball. Right about this time, everything about the school year for all teens is fast and furious.
