When kids are young, it’s easy to tell when they are too old for a toy. They stop playing with it and move on to something else or their bodies quite literally will no longer fit. But what about...
Some of my closest friends and family disagree with me on this, but we are NOT paying our child an allowance. At least, we don’t plan to for the near future — he’s only 9. Possibly never, until he...
"I am proud to have my kids in Scouting. My husband is an Eagle Scout, and I realize how much Scouting means to him and the importance of our children learning the values that Scouting teaches. We started our 7-year-old daughter in Scouting as well...
