Free Mutimedia Children’s Books

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.

Getting to College - Your Parental Role

There is no doubt that the transition from high school to college is a journey for both you and your teen. The magnitude of the move from 24/7 parent to empty-nester is not to be taken lightly, but your focus must be on helping your child in their journey.

My Barf Bag Obituary
