Find a Tutor - Save Some Tears

The school year has barely begun and the stress is already palpable. You feel it too?

Amanda Lehrman has a background in education and is a mother to her son Jack. Please check back here for more educational tips to prepare your little ones for school.

Sharing Precious Moments

One of my treasured memories growing up, was when I watched National Geographic with my dad. I remember sitting with him as a little girl watching programs about lions, sharks and well, the world. I believe those precious moments impacted the very core of my personality. They taught me to respect the wild and developed my ability to empathize with animals, nature and other people. Continue

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. 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…

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. For many parents this requires a step back to allow your teen to explore their own needs and desires and take ownership of the process. But being involved without controlling the process can be a challenge.

Long Term Concerns & Wishes

I spent the better part of my afternoon filling out a school application for Norrin. One application. Nine pages long. I took my time, printed as neatly as possible - even at the end, as my wrist began to ache. I needed his application to be perfect; the application was…
