Day Trip Idea: Glen Rose, TX

As a kid, I went to a summer camp in Glen Rose and therefore, the town has always had a special place in my heart.  Now that I’m “all grown up”, I’ve grown to further appreciate the small town’s offerings for the whole family.

5 Easy Steps to Resolving Conflict Between Kids

Conflict is normal. It is going to happen regardless of your age, ability to communicate well, or peer group. It’s to be expected. So why do we try and avoid it with our kids (and each other!) at all costs, instead of teaching them how to work through it? Becoming intentional with the way I parent […]

A Case Against Childproofing.

American mother Debra Ollivier gave birth to her first child in Paris. When her baby reached the age of mobility, she shares, “I baby-proofed our apartment with rubber edge liners, covers on electrical sockets, latches on windows, locks on drawers and toilet seat guards… my French neighbor Genevieve took one look at our place and […]

Day Trip Idea: Roanoke, TX

Since I was a teenager, Roanoke has always been somewhat of a carefree weekend evening destination for my family thanks to the original Babe’s Chicken Dinner House.  There was nothing better than packing up the family car and driving across the metroplex for a gluttonous family-style dinner of fried chicken or chicken fried steak, mashed […]
