Parenting styles: There’s one for everybody

Recently, we had some friends over for dinner. They came with their clan that mixed with our clan and a glorious time was had by all…until one of the boys decided to send a chair down the stairs with our little angel on it.  She survived without being battered or bruised, and his parents took him to task for his carelessness.

Before they could sit up or hold the book, we’d…

The importance of family

A couple weeks ago my kids and I made the trek to Nebraska to visit family. Anytime we make the trip, it is a drive with a capital D. It takes 14 hours to get from our home in Indiana to North Platte, Nebraska, where my parents, siblings, and their families live. To my kids, it’s a time of COUSINS.
