campingwknd2015-17 copy "Just remember that what you take for granted in your own life, someone else is wishing for." A simple and welcome reminder. Need to calm an anxious child? The best method is actually the simplest. Want to start eating healthier? These 19 resources can help. Education is important, but so is playing. When homework time spills over into playtime, how much is too much? We were surprised to find some great modern advice in these excerpts from a 1955 manual of child development.

If you haven't given 3 minutes of your life to watching this Zen little girl's speech on getting along, do the world a favor and make some time. This New York Times opinion piece is worth a thorough read. A Toxic Work World.
