Whenever we visit a friend’s house, my kids inevitably want to go see their bedroom. I have noticed the same curiosity when other kids come to our house: kids wonder where we sleep, what toys we play with, or even what snacks we have in our pantry. This natural inquisitiveness is equaled in adults- how many times have you taken in the details of a friend’s home, visited an open house for sale just to see the interior, or watched a show on TV that tours the inside of houses? We can…Continue

One of the best things I learned that helped me dramatically through the years of raising my beautiful daughters and now helping with my amazing grandchildren is reiki (ray-key). In 1985 a friend of mine talked me into taking a Reiki I class. She convinced me that it would help the learning disabled students I worked with - so I took the class which was held at her home in Boulder, Colorado.
Well I can tell you that was a…Continue

In its earliest forms chess was played in India during the 6th Century. It spread and developed throughout the world from the Middle East and to Europe. It became part of the education of the Persian nobility. It reached Europe through Persia, the Byzantine Empire and Arabian…Continue

I can empathize with new parents when they talk about the seemingly-impossible task of finding great schooling that doesn’t break the bank. Sending your preschooler off is hard enough emotionally, and becomes even more challenging when factor in your requirements: you want it to be a stimulating, educational, and reliable start and a comfortable place for your kids to be while you are at work.…Continue

The school year has barely begun and the stress is already palpable. You feel it too? Especially if you have a high-schooler and most especially if that kid is a junior; ACTs, SATs and trying to keep those grades up for college admissions. Oh, the stress indeed. And, we’re not sure whether parents stress out more than the kids themselves, but we know that a good tutor could help…

Part of being a college consultant – and an aspect I love – is attending conferences and visiting universities. As I type from my 11th floor beautiful, ocean view dorm on the University of British Columbia campus, and reflect on the major changes young people are experiencing in this…

Should a three year-old be getting tutored in math and reading? And can this tutoring really help give them an edge in school? Apparently the parents who have signed their tots up for Junior Kumon think so. This question is at the heart of a social media firestorm that continues to rage after a recent New York Times…Continue

I came across a wonderful site of free e-books for kids. I think my favorite part is that, it is highlighted word for word. Though, I felt some of the voice overs where a little slow, it would be ideal for a child who is just beginning to read. This would be a great resource for homeschoolers, children who are just learning to read, and for children ranging from pre-K to about 3rd grade…Continue
