Homework wars…lost library books…last-minute assignments…missed buses…sleepy heads…forgotten lunches…missed breakfasts…late starts are just a few of the common parenting concerns.
Getting your kids ready for grade school? Here are some tech tips to help prepare them for the year ahead.
Yesterday, my 5-year-old came down the stairs naked. Explaining his missing clothes, he said, “Mommy, I wanted to get naked.” I had no problem with that. Until I noticed he was still wearing his socks. White athletic socks, pulled up to mid-shin. It was chilly, but style cannot be sacrificed for comfort.
