Parenting gets very real for parents of high school kids in the spring. I’ve been talking to moms and dads who are trying not to freak out about their kids heading off into the world on their own. Are they ready? Are you? Here’s a crash course in what you’ll want your kids to know before they leave the nest.
Graduation and prom season is here, along with parties to celebrate the important milestones. This is the time of year when parents face a perennial challenge: whether to serve alcohol to underage partiers. An avoidable drinking and driving tragedy stuck my hometown when I was in college, and had a huge impact on my parenting.

Marinated fresh mozzarella and cherry tomato kabobs are one of my favorite go-to appetizers. No cooking skills required. Really!
You know them, they’re everywhere - the givers and the doers. People with big hearts and a commitment to making a difference in the world. The world needs motivated, get-things-done folks to make things happen at home, at school, and in the community.

January! Time for new beginnings. You’ve got a clean slate. And probably a few New Year’s resolutions, too. But now that it’s the middle of January, maybe those big resolutions are fading fast. How to stay on track? For starters, stop calling them resolutions, and call them promises. Add in some SMART goals, and set yourself up for success.
Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” is one of my favorite songs about life and embracing change. For me, it’s about evolution, courage, and growth. Depending on my mood, the lyrics feel nostalgic, happy, hopeful, and sometimes bittersweet.
Change is inevitable. It’s often scary, paralyzing or frightening. Yet it can also be exhilarating, freeing and liberating.
