Trashy Teen – Parental Modeling

Well this post will be a minefield of doggy dew but I  will try avoid stepping in it… Too Much. Trashy Teens & Parental Modeling is one of the more contentious parts of this issue as it frequently steps on a few toes along the way. This is mainly because I feel a trashy child […]

The Problem With Schools Is…

I am so tired of hearing this line. “The problem with schools is…” It prefaces every discussion anyone has about education these days.
