Fear itself isn’t a problem—it’s an opportunity to either become empowered and take action or, God forbid, to take the opposite path and become anxious and fall into dejection....

Parents Disagreeing about TV Time (Part II)

Last week, we discussed how parents can get on the same page when it comes to children watching TV/video or using technology.

On my husband’s live chat podcast a while back, one listener asked for homeschool resources.
