Looking for Winter Break Fun: We've Got You Covered!

NEED ACTIVITIES FOR WINTER BREAK? WE GOT YA COVERED! Nothing drives me more crazy than having a houseful of kids who complain they are bored during the winter break. I also tell them there's a room they can pick up or reading they can do and then I get the eyerolls. So after all the cleaning is done we still have a couple of weeks off and I know it's important for children to get a break from all the work they do at school, the tutoring sessions, the lessons and the extracurricular sports they do.

A Multicultural Back To School Guide: Raising Mini Global Citizens and World Changers

It's that time of year again y'all. Summer vacation is over and it's time to head back to school. I, for one, cannot be more thrilled. Not because my littles drove me bananas or anything (never that!) but because the last few months have been a difficult time in political and social justice history.  Kids today are inundated by current events via traditional media sources and social media. Not one to shy away from difficult conversations, my husband and I talk openly to our four children about what is going on in our society. We talk to them before they...

Summer Picnic picnics!!

By:Karishma Bhakta Summer Fun is here. Are you stuck sitting at home all day because of the heat. I totally understand, that's what I do all day. You spend all day inside. Why not have dinner outside? Have a picnic outside for dinner so you and your family can relax and get some fresh air. This way your kids can run around and have some exercise. Need some food ideas: - Try Sandwiches with little stuff like a Turkey or Ham Sandwich. -A small snack of nuts to munch on so they won't break like chips. -Some easy eatable fruits...
