My teens have jobs. Here’s why. The gap between their needs and wants is widening. For example, it is no longer enough to buy them “sneakers.” They need to have Nike Air this-or-that and adidas Prime Knit something-or-other. And they wear man sizes (one…

I stink at housework. All my cleaning happens because I’ve either reached the point of disgust (our shower last week) or I’m having company (which hasn’t happened in a while). The only things I do regularly are dishes, laundry, and toilets. Sometimes I…

My middle son’s car broke down today on the way to the mechanic’s. I knew it needed help and that is why I was on my way to have it serviced in the first place. I just didn’t think it was so imminent. (He’ll be taking his road test at the end of the month…
