    I imagine that like me, you have a lot going on in your life, and yet, often times you wish you could do more for others. As you try to raise responsible and generous children, you probably try your best to model kind behavior in your life. Perhaps you look for ways to donate or volunteer in an effort to do a bit of good in the world. With all that we have going on in our busy lives, it’s nice to step back and help when and how we’re able, even if it’s a small deed – it all adds up. It’s a bonus when opportunities to do good are offered along with activities…

Yet teaching children their parents’ native language often comes second to ensuring they are proficient in English so they can thrive in school and later reach leadership positions in the workplace. In addition, the task of teaching two (or more) languages can be overwhelming, leaving many of us wondering where to start.Raising Bilingual…

  • Is The World Ready for My Baby Girl to Be President?

    Melanie Edwards
    17 Sep 2014 | 11:39 am
    “I’m still not sure if I want to be a detective when I grow up or if I want to be President,” you proclaimed. In typical parent form I responded that you have plenty of time to decide since after all, you are only 8 years old and in 3rd grade. “You’ll figure it out, baby girl. There’s lots out there for you to explore,” I told you. While all of this is true, my own fears about the world we live in and how the world views women, and furthermore, people of color, gives me pause. It’s hard enough to be a detective, seeking truth and justice, and…
  • Adding Flair and Individuality to School Supplies with Duck Tape & Sharpie!

    Melanie Edwards
    12 Sep 2014 | 12:22 pm
    My 8-year-old’s third grade school supply list this year included plenty of notebooks and composition books. A caveat, though, was that all the notebooks had to be solid colors and she could not label any of them. This was because the school uses a system called community sharing where they collect all the children’s school supplies on meet-the-teacher day (or the first day of school) and the teacher then distributes them out to the children during the first week of school after labeling them with the subjects each notebook will be used for. It’s a great system for avoiding…
  • Continuing a Love of STEM with GoldieBlox Toys {Review & Giveaway}

    My eight-year-old baby girl has proclaimed that Science is her favorite subject in school for 3 of the 4 years she’s been in school. She also enjoys Math and Reading, but consistently says Science is her favorite. Unfortunately, subjects like Science and Social Studies take a back seat to Math and Reading in our local schools (most likely due to state assessment tests), so we’re always on the lookout for ways to incorporate a lot of learning in our home – we especially love talking about History, Science, and Math! From the time my girl could speak, we’ve encouraged…
  • Back to School Lunch Idea: PB & J Fruit Kabobs {Recipe}

    Melanie Edwards
    8 Sep 2014 | 10:25 am
    Having a picky eater makes packing school lunches challenging. My 8-year-old daughter happens to be a picky eater and though she is making progress and trying new foods lately, for the most part, there are still many foods on her “No” list. For this reason, I find myself often repeating one of her approved lunch choices – sometimes it even gets repeated within the same week. Presenting the same food in different ways may just be a way to mix things up a bit, though. That’s why I was happy to get different school lunch ideas when I visited the Walmart headquarters this…
