To encourage creativity in children means leaving open opportunity for art and conversation.

Gender stereotypes not just a girl thing.
Parents and society need to recast how we socialize and define "normal" behavior" for boys as well as girls if we want to end gender stereotypes.

If you have a tween or young teen girl, read on.
There are upsides as my daughters become women, parting with childhood and leaving my influence behind. It takes time and patience to find them, though.

Professional athletes — baseball players, in particular — are known for having very specific and downright odd pre-game rituals. Here’s what has happened in the past 24 hours, just as it has annually for the past decade, leading to my family’s excursion today to see the New York Mets home opener: Find tickets pinned to the bulletin board next to my wife’s computer, the same place I put them every year. [...] panic attack ensues when I can’t re...

If your child thinks luck is magic only for the select few, you are robbing them of the power to maximize his or her ability to succeed in life.

Looking for a great action/adventure book for your tween and young teen? Consider "The Adventures of Crash Adams" series from +Mike Adamick, who talks about creating the main character on this podcast.
Author Mike Adamick wrote his "Adventures of Crash Adams" series to pique the interest of pre-teens in nature while giving boys and girls a role model.

My wife heard this work-while-you-stand commotion and quickly became convinced the writer’s lifestyle was killing me, if not now than definitely before I got around to finally taking down the Christmas lights. Needless to say, she purchased me a stand-up desk — a truly touching gesture of how much she values my life once you overlook the fact she bought the cheapest one she could find on Amazon.

As I continue learning how to be visibly comfortable with my coming out, my daughter is in the process of finding her own sexual orientation.

First timer. Had Sara cut my receding mop today, and I was very impressed with her work, and the whole operation. Clean store, very friendly staff. I'll be coming back.

Been bringing my Lab there for years and never had a bad experience. Always accommodating, friendly and reasonably priced. Plus, unlike many "chain" kennels I've looked at in the Norwalk/Stamford area, they don't charge extra for bringing your own food for the dog (seriously, some places do), giving medications, or letting your pooch out in the yard to play with other dogs once or twice a day. Unlike Camp Bow Wow, they don't make you pay in advance for stays during peak times of the year or not refund you if you have to cancel at the last-minute. Two paws up, Passage East!
