Whenever I used to ask my mother what she wanted for a birthday or Christmas, she would always answer the same thing: "Nothing." If pressed, she would tell me that all she wanted was for us to be happy.



It's the sort of non-answer that a lot of Moms give. Yes, parents want their children to be happy,…

What's the deal with New Math?

The image on the right (or at least something similar) has been circulating the web for a while now. Initially I thought it was just another silly share going around, but today as it was posted I decided to click the link included with the post. It mentioned something called Common Core Math Standards and apparently it's already "standard" in some schools. This makes me nervous!…

Remember that show, "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?"  Well, it turns out, I'm apparently not.  You see, I happen to live with two of them, and I'm reminded of that fact nearly every friggin' night when I try to help them with their homework -- I swear we never learned ANY of this stuff until high…

The difference between 9 and 10

My daughter turned 9 last week. This is the child who lives and breathes all things pink and all things Barbie.

 

As I decorated the house for her upcoming birthday party, she came up to me and announced that she had something very important to tell me. I stopped taping pink and purple balloons to the fireplace and sat down to listen to her. I looked into the serious brown eyes of my daughter as she announced that this would be her last single digit birthday. Single digit? Who…

Why does this matter? What can we learn from Temple…
