Fizzy Sherbet - A Sweet Science Lesson For Your Kids!



"Fizzy sherbet in a paper bag with a strawberry lollipop was probably my favorite treat as a child, but I never knew what was in the sherbet and why it sparkled and tingled on my tongue! Try making some with your kids and enjoy a mini science lesson in the process ..."

Watch What You Say

Watch What You Say



"The young mother's words to her small children echoed in my head for several days. While I realized she was probably warning them to not do something against her wishes or something that could harm them, I can't help but wonder about the effects that a situation like that, heard over and over for a period of years, will have on their lives and their ability to realize their potential..."

Back to School - goal setting for kids



This excellent article starts out by warning us not to spend too much on meaningless "stuff" for the new school year, but I think its real value is in the second half, where the author gives some great ideas for helping kids to concentrate on what they want to achieve from school this academic year.
