Over 25,000 Read My Blog Post on Bullying

I was overwhelmed by the response I received on my last blog post on bullying. Over 500 people left comments asking me to share more of my story. After some reflection, I have decided to open up and talk a little more about how it all started for me, and how it eventually ended.





The very first time I remember being bullied was when I was just 6 years old and in first grade. We lived in Miami Beach and I spent a lot of time outdoors playing in my bathing suit or little… Continue

Find a Tutor - Save Some Tears

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.

Don't Get Duped by the Shoup!

 

I am a pen addict.  I love pens of all kinds.  Ball point, ink roller, glitter, fountain, colored, black, blue, fancy, cheap, and even markers, too.  Each year (okay, a few times each year), I buy a new set of multi-colored pens or Sharpie markers to color-code my calendars, lists, and my life.  My husband teases me, but accepts that he has an easy out anytime he needs a small gift to give me.

I was beyond excited when I recently found a multi-colored five…

Middle School Vogue

I pride myself on being a reasonably fashionable person.  I make an effort to keep my clothes up to date, my hair in style, and my makeup fresh.  So, it is with much angst that I have watched Elliott slip into the sloppy styles sported by her middle school friends.

"Even a daddy's girl has to let go sometime"

I was freezing cold and soaking wet.

The parking lot had been full that morning, so my son and I had hoofed it from blocks away to the elementary school. I'd given up my side of the umbrella, so the icy rivulets running down my back were an unpleasant reminder that fall had arrived quite early this year.

But when I turned the corner of the hallway, I almost forgot my discomfort. The scene in front of me broke my heart.

There was a dad, on his knees, with his first-grade daughter…
