A revolutionary teen work space, Studyville is located in Perkins Rowe to...
I logged into our daycare’s camera system and saw a picturesque scene; the teacher was seated on the floor with a gaggle of toddlers around her. They all appeared to be singing and swaying, all except for one. My toddler was standing away from the group looking on in apprehension, or that was my view of it anyway. He approached the group and then backed away again and then I saw the teacher lift her phone. She was clearly playing a video or a song and it seemed like my kid didn’t know how to react. I watched as both the teacher and the other toddlers invited him into the circle; he ran in the opposite direction. It got...
My best friend Katelyn and I have been discussing Twilight for a couple months now. Twilight was THE teenage romance series, while we were in middle school and high school. It is also a perfect example of emotional abuse, which, by the way, sets a great stage for physical abuse. Wind Goodfriend Ph.D. does a great job of naming a few of the thousands of examples of abuse Edward displays: He stalks Bella He encourages Bella to have as little interaction as possible from anyone outside his family He preys on her low self esteem He damages her vehicle so she can’t get away Before you go on assuming he was doing this to protect Bella, I just want to point...

Disclosure :: This post is sponsored by BASIS Charter Schools.  How to Support Student Achievement and Development To grow both academically and as individuals, students need a strong system of support at school. They are more likely to engage in class and achieve at high levels when they have trustworthy adults who they can confide in about their struggles, share their successes with, and seek out when they need help navigating academic and social life. At many schools, these individuals make up the student support services department, which aims to enhance academic achievement, while supporting students’ social and emotional needs. Maya Bennett, the Director of Student Affairs at BASIS Baton Rouge—Materra Campus, discusses the importance of supporting students academically, socially, and emotionally,...
“Mommy, read.” As annoying as these words are to hear at bedtime some nights when we’ve already read four books, I still love them deep down. I love that I’m raising a reader. I’ve been reading to my daughter since she was a newborn. Don’t get ahead here and think I’m one of “those moms” that had reading all planned out, doesn’t let her get do screen time, etc. I’d bet money my daughter gets more screen time than your kid. No, I didn’t intend to be a reading mom. One of my great friends teaches elementary school. She told me a few weeks after having my daughter to start reading to her, even if it was just news articles. So, I started...
