We all missed hosting playdates and book clubs and throwing open our doors for last minute dinner parties.  So, we got to thinking. If we couldn’t […]


Why we should raise our kids to choose good for themselves

I’m standing at the front of the classroom leading a discussion on Fahrenheit 451 when there came a quiet knock on the door. “Just a moment,” I said to my students, and as I walked over to see who was disrupting 5th period, the visitor opened the door herself.  It was a delivery from the […]

11 affordable kid-friendly rugs for the whole house

Of all the home goods to shop for, I think shopping for rugs is the most difficult. Let’s face it: they’re expensive!
