Stop Overparenting: How to Relax

Stop Overparenting: How to Relax

We parents regularly agree and discuss ‘how fast the time goes’ and how fleeting our moments are with our children. But I was talking with a new dad recently and he said that sometimes he wishes the time would go a bit more quickly – during those sleepless nights or those clueless days of new […]

When it Pays to Lose: The Value of the Stretch

When it Pays to Lose: The Value of the Stretch

The indoor soccer session is complete and our team’s record is 0-8. The team lost every game, but it was a great season nonetheless. Actually, it was a fabulous season because of the stretch. Through a fluke in the rules, our boys were playing against men (think: facial hair, grown-up swagger, and serious girlfriends in […]

The Presents We’ll Never Open

The Presents We’ll Never Open

This is the book that my husband will not be getting or Christmas, as much as he enjoys a good Grisham novel. And these are the boots that I’ll never own, as much as I really, really like them. And we’ll never open these gifts around our tree. We decided to try something different this […]

The Scientific Basis for Parenting: How Our Children Become Part of Us

Every parent who has loved a child knows the extent to which our children become a part of us. It’s a powerful thing. And it’s certainly something that all kinds of parents experience: adoptive parents, foster parents, biological parents. These little humans that pass through our lives, live in our hearts, and take a piece […]

The 4-Day School Week: Why it’s Not that Easy for Families or Work-Life

The 4-Day School Week: Why it’s Not that Easy for Families or Work-Life

There’s a new study* that suggests there are neutral-to-positive academic effects of 4-day school weeks on children. Hmmmm… This is all about cost-cutting. Districts that reduce to a 4-day school week save money on everything from utilities to busing costs. I get it. Schools are strapped and it’s all good for budgets and balance sheets, […]
