Sports help children develop physical skills, get exercise, make friends, have fun, learn teamwork, play fair, and improve self-esteem. But which sport is best for your child? What equipment do you need? What as a parent can you do...
Growing up, my husband and I went to both public and private schools. I started out in public school for elementary and middle school and moved to private for high school. He was the opposite. He started at private...
There was no “defining moment,” like dressing in drag or preferring to play with Barbies or crushing on Bieber, but by the time he was in middle school, I started to suspect my son might be gay. Naturally, I...
A few years ago, I stressed over where to send my soon-to-be middle schooler. How would I find the school with the perfect combination of challenging academics without birthing anxiety and stress, a place that fosters independence without throwing...
