Just say No to homework

Imagine this: School is over. Your children go to their after-school sports activity or music lesson and finally comes home. They have time to play outside and get some fresh air and sunshine. At the dinner table, everyone has time to talk about their day before retiring for their separate activities for the evening. Your children go to bed on time.…

Elijah and the Ninja Skills

Around Lape Haven, we kind of love silly. We thrive on imagination and creativity. We choose birthday party themes based on how costume-friendly they are. (We really do.)

But I have to say, sometimes, I am still amazed at how quirky my kids can be. They provide me with hours of…

Join Us For An Amazing New Experience That Could Transform Education!

     My life has been filled with chaos, joy, grandchildren, children, animals, students, writing intermingled with walks along the beach and hikes through the mountains. None of this has turned my life upside down like my latest endeavor! We have a wonderful conference in its 2nd year coming up this April in Minneapolis, MN. It is designed to bring creatives (musicians, artists and writers) together with brain experts and educators. I can't believe how amazing this…

There Is Nothing Taboo About Failure

Hi, my name is Kristen and I am a handbag junkie.

In fact, I love them SO much that I spent a very large sum of money to design and sell my own. Unfortunately, though I cherished those handbags and saw them having a unique value proposition, my business never did become profitable. I really thought it was on the brink a couple of times but we all know close only counts with horseshoes and hand grenades.

I lamented my losses for a long while (and continue to do so when I send my…

Creativity in a bento box

Who decides what is too creative? Or too little? Are there measures defined to judge how much is 'too creative' or lines and boxes that it can be fitted into? Are we looking at a future where our preschoolers go for sandpit class, learning precise co-ordination of spade with bucket and move on to postgraduate in fine arts which clearly specifies what is too creative and what is…

I'd love to, but I cant... I'm too busy.

What would you do if you weren’t too busy?

If you had a free hour… or even a free day, what would you do with it? You may imagine that you’d read all the books and magazines that have been collecting dust in your home. Or maybe you’d rent the entire season of your favorite show from Netflix and watch nine episodes in a row. Or maybe…

Sometimes Money CAN Buy You Happiness


When your kids are eerily quiet for any extended period of time, nine times out of ten it's because they're trying to burn your house down.  But every once in a blue moon, the stars all align, and the pip squeaks somehow actually manage to..... *gasp*..... play quite nicely together.  Sure, you might have to pay them for that momentary bit of peace and quiet, but we…

Surviving 5 Kids and Their Imagination

When talking with any sane adult, one can reasonably expect a conversation consisting of a chain of statements stemming from a comparatively small bank of possibilities. One might not know, for example, exactly how one’s colleague will respond to a business proposal, but rest assured he most likely…
