"The Talk"

Knowing when it is the right time.

My youngest daughter just turned 10 last month. She is at an age where I am beginning to wonder if I should have some type of talk with her. I feel like she is too young for this, but on the other hand, I don’t want her to learn all these things from the wrong sources.

Is My Child Gifted?

Signs Your Child is Above the Curve

Every parent when their child is a baby thinks they are going to be the next Einstein. As they grow, we find they have strengths and weaknesses just like everyone else. There is a small portion of children that are considered naturally gifted.

 

Experience with bullying

A tenuous situation

When I was a small child, I didn't have to deal much with bullying in my school. It wasn't until high school that bullying really got bad and quite honestly it made my high school years miserable.

I was one of the nerdy kids who spent all his time in science classes and was an easy target for the other kids. I'm older and now I have my own children in school who have to deal with what is seemingly a far more mean group of children.
